    reasons you got fired

    So I know it might not be the most unembarrasing topic, but I'm curious why drummers have gotten fired from projects, because I just have! The reason why I got fired was we didn't fit musically, however my guitarist complained consistently of how his girlfriend's keyboard parts didn't work with...

    why do people think drummers are flaky?

    I keep hearing drummer jokes and that drummers come and go and are the biggest flakes of the band. Can someone explain why drummers get a bad rep? haha

    need tips for practicing with bands

    I practice with my band twice a week and then once a week on my own to work out any sections that I feel weak on. I'm not the greatest drummer and am at intermediate level or so I would say, and feel that a good drummer wouldn't need to spend one night soloing to practice sections, that they...

    metronome or metronome/tuner?

    temperature for drumkit?

    I have an Oak Custom kit and am considering moving from a regular room temperature practice space to a friend's bedroom in a house. The issue is that bedroom is cold, about 19 or 20degrees Celcius. When we jam, we turn on a space heater and it gets up to 23degrees, but mostly it's chilly in...

    is there a fat 7A stick?

    i love the length of 7As but they're just a little too light. if i could find a 7A length but with a 5A weight, it'd be great. i've tried the Steve Gadd's, but the too is too heavy. other than that, they seem to break in the middle really easily. suggestions?

    Do you prefer wood or steel snares?

    i've only used a Birdseye Black Panther, 14x5.5 and am curious about steel snares (ie. Chad Smith). why do you prefer either wood or steel snares? i know that basically wood ones can be warmer, but what else? steel is brighter?

    installing snare wires: what a pain!

    i've attempted to put new wires on my snare and i just can't get the damn things tight enough. i guess it's a 2 person job as i don't have 3 hands to hold both sides plus tie the strings on. they're on evenly (not veering towards one side or the other) at least, haha. is this really the way...
