Metronome

I am wanting to get a free app for a metronome for my iphone (I'm too cheap to buy one). Anyone have any experience on which one to get?

Re: Toning down a ride cymbal

Except for these two quotes, I disagree with almost every other comment in this thread. I use Moon Gel or equivalent (glass gell from the $1 store) and it works just fine to cut down wash and...

Re: What's your favorite drumset category? Drums, cymbals or hardware

Drums, and judging from the posts on this board I am not alone. I however have everything I want right now so I'm not obsessing over anything.

Re: Stock snares

I have the stock snare that came with my Zickos kit and I really like it. I hadn't used it in a while but I dragged it out the other day for a gig and it was really good.

Re: Pete Cater on Big Band drumming

Enjoyed that but I have a question and a problem. the question is why does he but a plywood board under the snare? And the problem is I think his ride cymbal is too light, more for small group...

What do you think of just stain and clear coat? I think that's what I'm getting ready to do this summer.

Re: Taking the wrap off

I took the wrap off of a no name set. You could tell it was a re wrap in the first place, and a poor one at that. The wrap was over some holes that were left in on the tom mounts. Also, the...

Re: Can you read sheet music?

Boomka, I can read your chart easily. I'm sure if we both played it mine would be a little different from yours but the gist is there. I would be able to get through it without a rehearsal.

Re: Why the "hate" for nylon tips??

Back in the day, when I had to walk twenty miles to school through three feet of snow uphill both ways, I used nylon tips because I liked the definition. Today I use wood tips because I like the...

Re: Last piece of gear you forgot?

At one time or another I have probably forgotten every thing except the shell pack. This includes sticks, bass pedal, cymbals, hi hat clutch, music, I can't remember what else (pun intended). Most...

Re: The power of smiling

My wife used to tell me that, when I was playing, I looked miserable. I didn't believe her until I saw some pictures of myself. Now I put on my "drummers face" and look I am having a good time and...

Re: I'm back. Did you miss me?

Never did. I surmise it is somewhere in South America by now.

Re: I'm back. Did you miss me?

I kind of did. I have a foreign made 4 piece kit that is in pretty good shape(no label). It had a hideous blue wrap and I have been reading all these posts about stripping them. I used a painters...

Re: I'm back. Did you miss me?
