Re: Traditional grip for rock?

This is a "Chicken or the Egg" argument that will never be resolved.
There are some past threads about this issue that became insanely heated and argumentative.
It's silly really. As long as the...

Re: Traditional grip for rock?

Use the grip that works for you. I use traditional and matched as I see fit. I often switch between the two during a song. I have always played that way.
By the way, I am a lefty and I play my kit...

Re: Elementary jazz question about accenting on the ride

It depends entirely on the music that you are comping.
As a rule I don't do things like that. I let the cymbal sing and then hit the one with the BD. There are times when you are doing what is...

Re: Hoops?

Experiment with hoops. They make a big difference in the sound of drums.
Hoop choice is personal and there is no rule to which hoops one uses.
Have fun with hoops.

Example; I prefer 2.3 mm...

Re: Wrapping your kit?

Wrap will not change the sound of your kit substantially. You can glue it or tape it.
If you tape it you can remove it and change it much easier in the future.

Re: Vintage Drum Tuning anomaly

It all depends on the tuning pitch that you are after and what heads you are using. For Rock tuning I tension between 1/4 and 1/2 turn after finger tight. 2 Ply batter heads sometimes go to 3/4 turn....

Re: Lacquer vs Wrap - how much does it really matter?

Makes no difference as far as I can tell. Wrap is better suited for kits that are frequently banged around from the demands of gigging, etc because it is more resilient.

Re: New kit....don't know why though

Cool little kit. Does one really need a reason to buy a kit? You saw it and you must have seen something that you liked about it in order to buy it.
It shouldn't be any more complicated than that....

Re: OT: Clark Terry Dead, Age 94

Clark was one of the great ones that's for sure. I have always liked the trumpet. I have always liked his playing.

Re: Got hustled, any input apreciated

Your best option is to keep them and use them. They really aren't bad drums, they just aren't as good as the earlier Rogers kits.
You only lost a few hundred dollars to learn a lesson that is much...

Re: Bobby Colomby

I struggled to play along with this tune when I was a kid. I still listen to BS&T today on a regular basis. Bobby was an icon for me. I loved his timing and control.

Re: Restoring hardware on an old kit

Remove the hardware from the drums before cleaning and polishing.
You will never be able to create a new finish unless you have the hardware re-plated. Once the plating is pitted, corrosion will...

Re: Help installing new snare wires on P-83

The Puresound wires come with cloth strips and metal clips to attach them to the strainer and butt plate. Ditch them and go with good old fashioned snare cord.
Thats what I do.

Re: The Bo Eder Pearl Vision Signature kit ;)

My psychological issues would never allow me to play a kit like that even though my logical mind tells me that it would sound fine. Humans are complex :)
