Re: Question for the Professionals

And, one more note - because a company tolerates an infraction, it doesn't mean they're happy about it. I've encountered a few of these myself.

Without naming the brand or product, one of my...

Re: Question for the Professionals

Let me add that the particular product often determines the severity of the infraction.

Snares enjoy more of a "blind eye" when it comes to using competing brands. It's hard to argue with the fact...

Re: Question for the Professionals

Exactly, and there are a few factors that govern what action (if any) the company might take. Mostly, it depends on the level of the artist, their credibility, the length of the relationship, and...

Re: Jon "Bermuda" Schwartz here!

Thanks Dan! There'll be plenty more songs, just not a CD issued by a label.

Well, unless someone offers us a ZILLION DOLLARS!!

Re: Irony?

I think that's the case in at least some of the instances of signature snares/kits, with the lure for the artist being a royalty on each sale. And of course the more units sold, the more the payment,...

Re: Snare drum Olympics - help needed - opportunity!

And, with Andy's kind words to everyone, I hereby fess up: I am getting the drum!

I did struggle with the decision... for about 30 seconds! The craftsmanship is meticulous and unique, the price is...

Re: What drummers need for a gig

This is a smart idea whether you have 1 or 2 or 3 vehicles, and I highly recommend two or three pair of sticks as well, separate from your primary stick bag.

I recently did a gig where I had a...

Re: What drummers need for a gig

Agreed on the spare parts, and especially the bags. They're lighter, take up less space, and typically cost less than cases, and are easier to carry multiples thanks to their straps (you can carry...

Re: John Densmore: New Book to Preserve The Doors' Legacy

Hey Densmore, I got your ghost right here! It was certainly The Doors without Morrison back in the day, at least according to Elektra Records!

Re: Cramped Drums on Tiny Stages

I definitely will bring smaller drums to a smaller stage. I have an 18/12/14 kit that's compact and actually sounds quite good, but my preference is 20 or 22" kick with 13/16 toms. Granted, the...

Re: Online shopping and research

Electronics are certainly different to an extent, you would probably not use the terms pads, trigger, MIDI or module when searching for acoustic drums.

For drums, I typically search by brand name...

I asked my wife if I should get involved, and she said no.

Re: Musically, what are you involved with at the present?

Let's just say I can afford to play in local bands. :)

Actually, I've always been in other bands. I like playing, and when I'm behind the drums, one gig is just as enjoyable as another. These...

First, you're supposedly new here, so I will assure you that this thread is far from out of control.

Second, people are absolutely entitled to their opinions, and to voice them here. As such, when...

Re: Becoming a Professional Drummer

Heh, I feel like I've been out of the business after reading that!

Good stuff Bill! Now if we can only get people to do a search next time this comes up (in about 2 months.)

Re: Musically, what are you involved with at the present?

1. How many bands are you in?

4 full-time, 1 possibly joining, 4+ as a regular sub. And then there's the Al gig.

2. What kind of music does each band play? Instrumentation?

Zero G Band -...

Re: SJC, yay or nay....

Let's stay on topic without anymore asides, name-calling, or accusations.

No explanations or apologies needed, just knock it off.

Re: Super-Ludwig 401

This was posted already, and I refrained from showing mine in that thread.

Refrain further I shall not.

Re: SJC, yay or nay....

Aww, lay off Steve, if the OP is playing DW and considering SJC, he's obviously got bigger problems than just being an insolent ****.

Besides, he already said "see ya", so I doubt we'll be seeing...

Re: SJC, yay or nay....

Please be more careful about suggesting that participating in this forum, playing drums, and having a life are somehow mutually exclusive. Some of us manage all three very well.

Re: Gorilla Music

Wow, never heard of them, and I guess I should be glad! I'm guessing they don't have a presence in L.A., maybe too many savvy musicians here. :)

Haven't heard of Gorilla, but one of my bands does an occasional gig where we have to sell a minimum # of tickets (which we do, and then some.) But they're sorta cool gigs, opening for classic...

Re: Not doing a gig because of the venue

Never avoided a gig because of the venue itself, or the people. Maybe the diciest gig I've ever done was for an L.A. area biker club at their clubhouse, but Crash - the sergeant at arms - made sure...

Re: Annoying Sounds

Also not annoyed, and depending on the parts I'm hearing, I may be inspired and motivated to learn.

But, you said you're air drumming, so does it really make a difference?
