Re: 8 years of professional teaching - time to give it away

I've always played totally lefty. Started in late 1969. I would be dismayed at any teacher that would not accommodate a left handed player. That in itself is totally unprofessional. It only takes a...

Re: Snare Drum Comparison, Observations

I'm glad to hear that you like the Yamaha Musashi. I've been pondering getting one of those. For some reason I think I'd like it, even though I've never heard one before. I think I'd like the 13"...

Re: Last piece of gear you forgot?

[QUOTE=Zickos;1338016]At one time or another I have probably forgotten every thing except the shell pack. This includes sticks, bass pedal, cymbals, hi hat clutch, music, I can't remember what else...

Re: Yamaha Drums

Man that kit looks pretty sweet. I've never heard the clubs in person, but I bet I'd like them. I think that's the best finish I've seen on those kits. Really nice.

Re: What's on your bass drum reso head?

This head is on my Tour Customs (88 model). I did it myself, I was very pleased how it turned out. It's obvious to me, but some people don't see Jesus with a crown of thorns, and some blood drops,...

Re: Gretsch Round Badge video

Those drums sound pretty darn good, but I think I'd be jammin on those RC's that are sitting there.

Re: What Metaphors Do You Use in Your Playing?

I like that analogy. It sounds pretty true to life. The only one that comes to mind for me is "we are in the drivers seat" We drive the band or the song, we control it's speed, steer it in the right...

Re: Shell Tap Tone

I recorded the tone of my 2 rack toms without heads and hoops. I did have the lugs still intact. When I played it back to tune my toms to that pitch, I was already tuning them to that pitch, at least...

Re: Double Bass Drum Futility

I agree with axis in that you're playing a lot faster then 120 in your video. I think maybe you're not counting BPM's correctly.

Re: Drummers you thought sucked,but...

I thought John Bonham didn't know how to play the drums right, when Black Dog came out. I was only about twelve then, so I didn't have much sense. Come to think about it, I still don't have much...

Re: Lacquer vs Wrap - how much does it really matter?

Bo, that cracked me up. I'm with the others here. I can't tell any difference between wrap, and lacquer.

Re: Jazz and Matched Grip

I'm glad you posted about this, as I've wondered the same. I've played matched for 40+ yr. Every now and then I'll hold the sticks traditional, and man it just feels so weird. I don't Jazz but I've...

Re: What will it take for me to be able to do this?

Re: Double Bass Drum Futility

Mister Zero, I feel your pain. I think it's been 10 or more yrs for me. I've only bought one book, Dom Famularo's pedal control, and one CD, Jason Bittner's what drives the beat. I've watched...

Re: Is Don Henley relevant here?

I've always considered Don to be a great drummer and singer. When I say great I mean that he made great music, not that he could out drum all the others. When you're the drummer for a band that is...

Re: Kickport, does it really make a difference??

I put a kick port in my 18X20 Yamaha BCAN with stock heads (PS3 I think) and it sounded a lot better. I also used it on my 22 (same drum series) again it sounded better. I later put an old SK1 on the...

Re: Questions re Yamaha's tight fitting tension rods

Re: Ebay dissapointment

I was pretty sure it was an honest mistake. A++ sellers wouldn't do that deliberately. Probably a disappointment for him too. He didn't beat around the bush though. The 1st thing I heard from him was...

Re: Ebay dissapointment

today the seller sent me a shipping label and apologised for the wrong size. He said he would refund my money as soon as he sees the tracking number showing that I shipped the hi hat back to him.
