Re: Need Some Help

At that price point, the differences between the 4 kits is minimal. They are all made in china out of the same materials, and quite probably all in the same factory

If it were me, I'd stick to the...

Re: Poll: do you double bass?

5 and 1/2?

Close to a 6?

Love it. Used to Work on it ALOT. I have used it with bands when appropriate. But I'm not an expert, nor do I have the need/desire to work up to 7.

Re: Irony?

I'm thinking Joey was wise enough to know that not many of Joeys' fans could afford much more.

He has a whole "signature" kit that he admits is a cheaper version of what he uses on stage to make...

Re: Mapex Armory or Tama Hyperdrive?

Both are good kits.

But I'm particularly impressed with the Armory in that price range.

Re: Could have been awkward #2

On my, that is funny!

Sounds like an Monty Python skit

"Dear Sir, what are you doing with my wife?"

"oh, just having a round with her using my cajon"

"Ah, very well, carry on..."

Re: Songs that make you do a double-take when you sit to down to play them

There is a programmed drum machine running through much of the song. And a machine doesn't have to worry about only having two arms.

Re: Spousal Static - A mini Rant

I was gigging a lot when I met wife. She even used to help me unload the drums out of the car at the end of the night. She knew the job was dangerous when she married me.

Re: Becoming a Professional Drummer

That is great! And that sums it up really well.

Re: SKF Blog: Pete Best: If You Canít Have Fun, Donít Go Back On Stage

I'm always amazed in any interview I've read of him he never seems the least bit bitter or upset over what happened.

Re: What's My Next Move?

Finding band members is like dating.

You have to talk to a lot of people before something clicks.

Re: Used Premier XPK Kit

I agree with Less.

Depends on all of what exactly is included. Without pictures, it's hard to say.

Last January, Premier was running a special on XPK for 8, 10, 12 toms 14 and 16 floor toms,...

Re: What I Learned From Roy Burns 40-Years Ago

I miss the columns he used to write for Modern Drummer.

His career as a player is certainly over looked by most, in part because so many people only know him as the guy behind Aquarian drum heads.

Ghost Rider was an amazing book. It doesn't matter if you like or hate Rush, or Neil, as it had the band and drums were barely even mentioned.

Given most people just simply don't buy albums anymore, I'd go the Ep route myself.

Re: Potential drummer; have a maybe controversial question

If you to play 'em, play 'em.

Some people start playing drums at age 5, some at age 50. The drums themselves don't care how old you or aren't, or even how good you may or may NOT be.

Re: Annoying Sounds

I figured out a long time there is music I like to listen to and there is music I like to play.

Some of my favorite albums of all time are beyond my chop range.
