Re: Painting and Staining drums

If this is going to be your first time doing any paint or stain work, I would not do it on your new kit. That is the best advice I can give you. Practice on some scrap wood first. Once you've done it...

Re: Trying to record V-Drums

Yes, if you want to record the audio you will need an audio interface for your laptop. MIDI cables only carry data, no audio. When you record your drums via MIDI to the laptop, you will end up with a...

Re: Zach Hill

I just found Hella tonight and I really love it. If you check their music vids on YouTube, you can see they can groove really well with the spastic parts thrown in here and there. The live stuff...

Re: Rediculously Massive Drum Kits

I love big kits. Small kits are fun, convenient, and easily get the job done, but something about big kits just really make me smile. It's like having control over the Universe or something. hahahah...

Re: The "flat surface test": Help me solve a tuning mystery

I only use my DD to get things close, then fine tune by ear. I'm sure my DD settings would vary if I measured after the fine tuning. It's no big deal. It's the sound that matters most. I've had the...

Re: Converting a bass drum into a gong drum?

I didn't realize the heads used were slightly larger. Why is that?

I guess that is one of the things that sets a gong drum apart from a large tom.

Re: Place for set?

Is there anything you can do to insulate and seal off the cottage you are currently keeping the set in? I've been wanting to get a large shed from the likes of Home Depot, but they aren't finished on...

Re: Bass Drum Tuning

Are you propping the front end of the kick up with the spurs? That will help. It also depends on the room. I use the Superkick II / EQ3 combo, with res side tuned real low (not far above wrinkle) and...

Re: Ari Hoenig

I like this guy a lot. I'm definitely in need of an album. I love how percussive and musical he is. What should be the first album I buy with him on it?

Re: Feet-Playiing with shoes: good? bad?

I used to play with shoes on because I came to practice with shoes on. Now that I have a music room in my house, I show up to practice without shoes on. Shoes, no shoes... it doesn't matter for me....

Re: CB 700

It's great when you can get to the point where the end sound you want is the sound you create going in. It allows you to focus on the more creative aspects of mixing. I'm really trying to get to that...

Re: CB 700

I like my metal CB700 snare. Hopefully I'll be done with painting it this week and can show it off. As with my cheap Pulse snare, I like to tune it real tight with tight snares and I use the top...

Re: CB 700

My CB700 is metal. Actually in the middle of a paint job right now. I need to order some glow in the dark star stickers.

Re: music theory: a necessity for drummers

I know Korsakov's book is good, but based on the reviews over at Amazon people seem to like Piston's better. They say Korsakov only used examples from his own music, and didn't go into as much detail...

Re: music theory: a necessity for drummers

The book I had used in the past was 'Principles Of Orchestration' by Korsakov. Piston's book looks nicer. I also like that it is a hardcover. I'll have to add Piston's to my wish list.



That is...

Re: music theory: a necessity for drummers

Thanks for that! Seems like Barnes and Noble doesn't have them new. That's my favorite book shop, but maybe I can find them new somewhere else. Do both books cover overlapping material? If I had to...

Re: music theory: a necessity for drummers

Wile, I couldn't agree with you more. Theory isn't just about the 12 tone scale even. It's a study of all music, and everything about music! I really miss my days as a music major. :)

Re: music theory: a necessity for drummers

You're only limited by your own imagination. Theory will help you understand what you are writing and playing. It won't tell you what to write.

Re: music theory: a necessity for drummers

As you've already noticed, knowing theory will help you communicate your musical ideas. It's not a necessity, but an extra tool to use.

Re: Jon "Bermuda" Schwartz here!

Bermuda, when you have to play a song live that has several snare sounds as you mentioned earlier, do you use the pads in your kit for some of this, or are the sequences you trigger from the pads...

Don't they all... :)

If you are just trying to make your existing finish shine, why not just clean and wax it?

Re: Premier drums

I have Aquarians on my Premier's now, at least the toms. The kick is using a Tama head. I've used Remos on them before too.
