Re: Massive OCD

Fiddling can take up a lot of time.
Take everything off your kit but snare, bass hats and ride, and just play with that for awhile. Still plenty to be done with few if any adjustments.
Do you do...

Re: Should I buy this snare drum?

Sure buy that snare if you like its sound.
If you are looking for a good cheaper alternative snare, try a used Ludwig Acrolite. If has to be a wood snare - there are also many other great options...

Re: Beginners Guide on what to buy

+1, The most excellent advice.
I did exactly this (but not planned that way) and am glad I did. Took me awhile to figure out the right pro cymbals though. That was all before my 'DW education'.

Re: Is this a good deal?

Re: Putting band name on kick drum head, with multiple bands?

I've also heard (on here somewhere) of decals that stick on with very small magnets (i.e both side of reso), so small they would not affect too much of the movement of a reso head.

You can always...

Re: Possibly my first serious thread. Sexism.

And how is this progressive? Trans-men getting pregnant/giving birth will somehow swing the pendulum to eventually have all other men begin to understand a women's perspective? The majority of humans...

Re: Band members with bad timing

Correction - sorry, I re-read your first post and now see you are "up on a stage". Aha.

1. hold your tempo, don't be pushed around, or

Re: Band members with bad timing

If it's an informal thing, why not just stop mid-tune and say "you're rushing' or 'you're dragging' ...'this is going too slow, too fast'. 'Lets start over get it right.'?
Or hold your ground on...

Re: Is it OK to talk about the movie "Whiplash" yet?

Teaching by fear, intimidation, nastiness...etc. ? IMO that is totally a stupid, uber-ego, power trip and ineffective. It doesn't work, in sports either.

Not seen the movie yet but saw the trailer...

Re: 8Mile's Gretsch itch

Burnt Orange would be my pick. Love that on Gretsch drums.

Re: Doug Clifford’s 1969 CCR Drum Kit on Museum Display

One can't assume what a drummer toured with or shows up in pics of the day, was what was used in studio. Clifford went to the 18 hihats mostly in the live setting - to compete with amplification, as...

Re: bass drum claws

In my experience all claws fit a standard bass drum hoop thickness, but some claws might require shorter or longer tension rods, to reach and tighten the lugs. So make sure the combination works.

Well if not that, latest news is that if not murders-for-hire, Phil sure was procuring a lot of hi-class escorts ....and not paying for any of them. That will get some of the mob angry.
