Re: A rear line day - mini report.

Yes, I'd definitely say it's a "wooden block", but it looks like a large flattened cowbell with slits in the sides(?). I've never seen any...

Re: A rear line day - mini report.

What is the "wood block / temple block" thingie mounted on the boom between the 2nd and 3rd toms? I've never seen that before.

Re: Toms wont stay tunned

PDP CX drums have the True-Pitch tuning system (10-32) threads, The more common/standard pitch is 10-24, If you order Tightscrews, make sure you get the correct ones (if they're even offered).

Re: Thanks ... I think

Not me, but our guitarist. A guy came up to him and said, "Man, you're amazing! You look like you have arthritis when you're playing!"

Re: Dillemma...what to let go of, what to keep

Simple answer ... keep everything! The last thing you want is seller's remorse.

Re: How long does your snare cord last?

I had a supra back in the early 80's, and I was going through cord like crazy. I took the drum to my local shop, and the drum tech there discovered a burr in the hoop cutout.

Re: posture

Re: Does anyone actually like big finales?

Don't like playing them, don't like seeing them, don't like hearing them. Other than that, they're fine.

I was in your exact same situation. I had my white onyx 5-piece for about 5 years, and was ready to add the 16" floor tom. It took about 2 years to find it, scouring CL, ebay, checking...

Re: Favorite Song to Rock out To?

Right now, it's Dishwalla "Counting Blue Cars." Just something about playing that song that makes me wanna pound the crap outta them (well, you know, the chorus)

Re: Acoustic Gig

I think it depends on several factors. What gear do you have available? What are you comfortable playing? What is the size/type of the venue? What are your bandmates looking for?

Re: Negotiating more money for a gig.

I can see where the times and an early flight, etc could be a problem for the guitarist, but turning down a paying gig for band practice is beyond absurd IMO.

Re: Selling my Yamaha Beech Customs. What should I ask? (pics)

Aside from lacking the money ... and the space ... and the distance between us, I'd grab them up in a heartbeat! I've wanted beech customs for years now, and I love that color. Isn't it called...

Re: Legs always feel sore

I didn't go back and read your original post (that you didn't post), but where are you sore, and what kind of pain? Dull? Sharp? Shooting?

Re: Elvin Jones Documentary

That's one thing that I don't get. Drummers (and sales ads) are always referring to adding "colors" and "textures". No, they're sounds. Drums and cymbals (and percussion accessories) produce...

Re: Preparing for a covers band

You might already know this stuff, and I didn't see anyone touch on it here, but .... once you're on the gig:
- sit down with the guys before each set and go over any questionables for that set.

A couple of things that I always keep in mind....

Re: Rock Gigs Not Very Rock Anymore?

I guess it depends on the definition of "gig" and/or "show". I haven't been to a concert (where the sole purpose is to see/hear the band) in quite awhile. Most of the gigs that I attend or play...
