Re: Bo rants!

I'm not making an excuse for this behavior, but I think a lot of this type of behavior was more common in the past than it is now. Or maybe it is regional, I grew up in Brooklyn, and people just...

Re: Drummers that can't tune drums.

For the first fifteen years of my playing I had problems tuning my drums. I could not get the drums to sound as good as I wanted them to. I eventually settled on a method I got from some recording...

Re: Is this suspicious?

A good way to combat SPAM is public awareness.

Re: it hurts and that is why I am posting

I have been setting the floor relatively in the same spot for a heck of a lot of years, like 43 years. Wow, I do not even believe it has been that long.

Re: it hurts and that is why I am posting

Bermuda,

thanks for the suggestion, I moved out the floor tom. I think it will work. I did not think of doing that, maybe because I had the floor tom real close to my knee for so many years, I...

Re: it hurts and that is why I am posting

I have been adjusting it to try to prevent this from happening. I used to keep it flat and at the same height as the snare. Was interested in what others have their floor tom set to relative to...

For a few months now, about once every two weeks I hit my finger on the rim of my floor tom. I feel like this is a phase, like dropping sticks, or breaking sticks. The only problem with this phase...

Re: I got some Fiberskyn heads for free.. the heck do I use them for?

The Fiberskyns have a great look. However, they are very fragile. if you use them as batters they will not last long. I had them on my Gretsch kit and soon found out that the contact paper coating...

Re: Rogers Dynasonic Custom Built Snare 10 Lugs

I own two dynasonics, a 5" and a 6.5" both chrome over brass. These are great snare drums. The frame allows the tension on the wires of the snare to be adjusted differently from the tension of the...

Re: Technical question......Song endings

I and some others, used to call that type of ending a "Grand Funk Railroad" ending. That band always seemed to just play those types of long endings.

Re: am I the last one to know about this technique for playing lower volume on cymbals?

I will play a conga with a few extra pieces, but I refuse to use the cajon. I really do not have a logical explanation for it. I just dislike them. Using a mac/ apple device I have a logical...
