Re: Should I Correct This Before It's Too Late?

I do this a lot, actually. When I used to watch marching band as a kid, I was young and basically mimicked what I saw on television/live.

I can play traditional grip in both the right and left...

I think either way you're going to be satisfied, however I do think that the Pro M would probably be worth saving money for. However, I'm not a Pearl or Mapex owner, so I don't know how good my...

Re: what size for jazz snare drum?

I'm of the opinion that jazz snares are best when they're at extreme sizes. I have a 3x13 Piccolo snare that is VERY articulate, and with the right heads, it can be very dry sounding.

Re: Drum damaged in shipping. Am I responsible?

I think that UPS could have been responsible, however the buyer needs to take pictures of the box. Even then I'm still skeptical -- this seems like damage that couldn't have been inflicted by UPS,...

Re: right hand 16th notes on hi hat

Grab a pair of sticks and a metronome. Start at the slowest BPM possible, and work your way up. Don't start at 90. Work on each BPM for at least 2-3 minutes, even if it's boring. Analyze your grip,...

Re: Those that ordered Yamaha drums...

Did you make a custom order, direct from Yamaha? That might have been the biggest reason for such a delay.

Plus, Yamaha is a gigantic company, and I'm sure tons of people order from them every...

Re: Things you hate to have happen while drumming

I hate dropping sticks, because while some people can retrieve or grab a new one gracefully, I usually fumble.

Re: how you feel

When I play, I kinda feel like Bernard Purdie.
In other words, lots of inner dialogue/body language such as: "Ooh, ahh, DAYUM that's funky!"

I rarely ever get mad; the closest I get is frustrated...

Re: New Pacific Series

This made me LOL.

I think if Pacific had just offered an option to powder-coat other, existing lines, they would have saved themselves some money, and probably would have a lot more buyers.

Re: "professional drumbeat"?

I'm pretty sure it's kids being kids. To my knowledge, there is no such thing as a professional drumbeat. A drumbeat is a drumbeat.

Re: To Energize, or not too? That is the Question.

I just started a regimen of drinking vitamin water by Glacieau when I go to work (warehouse job, so lots of heavy lifting and working out my muscles) and when I play drums for prolonged periods....

Re: Tell your worst gig ever

Well.. it wasn't necessarily a bad gig.. but a mighty embarrassing moment.

Right as I got up to my kit, I sat down and one of the legs to my throne gave out, sending me flat onto my back. I...

Re: How close are you to your Dream Kit?

I'm one cymbal away from my dream cymbal setup, but drums? I don't think I'll ever have one dream kit.. probably 2-3 kits that would be my equal favorites, and I'd use for different applications.

Re: Birch, Maple, or Mahoganny?

Throw away any focus on pricetag.

You could spend a billion dollars on drums and not find the sound you're looking for. Oak and Birch are good for finding a brighter pitched sound. So, if you're...

Re: extra snare wires oh goodie
