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

I used Jammin Sam's on some Mapex drums that did not match, and it looks good and has held up great. Peace and goodwill.

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

I am in two now: church Wednesday night and Sunday morning and a blues band that practices every other Saturday afternoon. That is a good situation for me. Peace and goodwill.

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: Little experiment I did

Actually, it should be Lars's Ultip. All singular possessive nouns get 's. Peace and goodwill.

Re: When playing one up and one down...

I play a one up, one down kit, but not to get the ride cymbal closer because I play open handed with the ride over by the hats. I have a crash cymbal where most drummers would put the ride. I...

Re: How many times have you been asked...

The last time I played at a a party, a let our guitarist's nephew play a few tunes. I was told he is not a basher, and it was nice to hear the drums and cymbals from out in front. Peace and...

Re: My new "Yes I can play" kit ;)

Did you spend more for the Pearl tom mount than you did for the 12 inch tom? I like the kit. The next time we have blues band practice, I am going to take my toms that do not match just because I...

Re: DW Jazz Over Gretsch??

They sound like drums, and that is all anyone else besides a drummer will think. Get what appeals to you for whatever reason and have fun playing. Peace and goodwill.

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.

Re: playing less and keeping time

On a slow, simple song, pretend you wrote it. That helps a lot. Peace and goodwill.

Re: Singing and playing?

I have sung in every band I have been in. Most of the time, the drums sort of go on "auto pilot." I have been doing it for a very long time, so I do not remember it being a problem. Peace and...

Re: Kind of an odd question?

That mostly depends on the stereo. From what you said, I doubt yours will do what you want. You could get an adapter to plug two headphones into the same jack. Good luck. Peace and goodwill.

Re: How do you guys learn a song?

It depends on the tune and how familiar I am with it. Most of the time, I listen to it a few times. If I was playing prog or fusion or jazz, it would be different. I am playing blues-rock, a style...

Re: I suck at power ballads.

I read a long time ago in Modern Drummer, when playing a slow song (or any other type you have trouble with), pretend that you wrote it. It has worked for me. Peace and goodwill.

Re: Band PA ownership options - thoughts, experiences

In the past we pieced together a PA from what the different members already had. That way there is no question about who owns it. I have a small mixer/amp, two small speakers, and a good Crown...

Re: Hey Lefty Drummers

I am left handed and right footed, so I play open handed. I live in the boondocks, so there is no jam night situation for me to deal with. Peace and goodwill.

I am 57, and I do not listen to much stuff from my youth, which was the 60s and 70s. Peace and goodwill.
