    Home made minimalist kit with cajon kick (finally)

    So if anyone has noticed I have posted all kinds of questions about small kicks, cymbals and setups over the years and it all has led me to this little thing. I am in my 40's and really just an intermediate drummer who occasionally plays with friends who are usually playing acoustic guitar...

    Small crash cymbal to use with cajon set up- thinking splash

    Anyone recommend a cymbal with a high pitched crash sound that is maybe 12" or smaller? Most splashes have a slightly lower pitched tone than my 16" A crash (obviously) but that is the sound I am looking to copy with a smaller cymbal. I will probably be playing with my hands or blasticks or...

    I've seen some cool pictures and heard some discussion about this but I don't own one and would like to hear what it sounds like and how it can be played. Can anyone post a video of this in action?

    Small kick ideas/tricks? Considering a cajon or smaller kick

    What I'm really looking for is a way to play my bass drum with a pedal amongst acoustic guitar's so volume is not as important as a decent/low bass drum sound. I have experimented with 14/16 "kicks and I have not found a way to tune one to make the sound that's in my head. Too much attack and...

    Smaller thinner kicks with good sound- ideas?

    I am looking to come up with an alternative to my 20" kick for portability and just to play with acoustic guitarist (s). Just play snare and kick with hats with these guys so not looking to be particularly loud either. I really want a deep thud though and have been struggling to find a good...

    Wood snares---woddy sound. Help

    So I have a couple older luddy snares 14x5/6 1/2" LM402's that I absolutely love. Teacher had them and I learned on them and cant quite get past the sound. But, I play with some country guys and the snares are little too cutting and not woody enough when playing rim clicks. I think I want a...

    Beginner book on music theory- recommend one

    Tower of power song- incredible performance

    Recorded at the Fillmore in '11 I think- Garibaldi just holds it down (probably win a Guinness Book award for most ghost notes played in a song) but the start is the sax player (RIch Allen I think). They work into a groove that is really incredible and the sax playing and coordination between...

    Thinking about building a kit- home made shells

    I made a poplar snare out of scraps and used the lugs and hoops from an old snare and it came out pretty good. Improved with advice from the good people here. So, I am thinking about making an entire kit. I know I could do it and it I have a shop full of tools (I am a building contractor) in...

    Are we too hard on people around here?

    Just asking because, of all the forums I have ever joined, this place is the most "serious" occasionally about the oddest things IMO. Like newbie (I am still one but dont post most of what I want to...) posts about this and that or nothing to us slightly more experienced drummers. Or new...
