Re: How do you cue your live tempos at the gig?

I sort of "hum the chorus" in my head and then count it off. I have never gotten any complaints. Peace and goodwill.

Re: Left handed question

To me what matters most is what "footed" you are. I am very left handed but am very right footed. When I was young, I always kicked a ball with my right foot. So when I started playing drums back...

Re: How much is my kit worth/what's it made of?

Those are very good drums. We would need to see more pictures in order to answer your questions. I play drums like those at church. They are some sort of maple blend; I do not remember because it...

Re: Mapex Nomad 13x6 brass

Re: Finally got me an Acrolite !!

Those are excellent snares for sure. I do not own one now, but I have owned three different ones in the past, one of them for twenty or so years. Enjoy! Peace and goodwill.

Re: Are you familiar with Jammin Sam's drum wraps?

Re: How many bands have you been in at the same time?

Re: Using tuning to muffle 18" bass?

In my Gretsch Catalina 18 inch bass drum, I put an Evans EQ pad inside, but it does not touch the heads. It soaks up the high frequencies bouncing around inside of the drum. I had to modify the pad...

Re: Hilarious! Gretsch/DW

That is from the movie Downfall, which is the most realistic movie I have ever seen, and I have seen way more than my share of movies.

That video is very funny. Peace and goodwill.
