    What exactly is a "Buttery" sound?

    A friend of mine who’s a pro plays whatever the guy paying him wants to hear, but he grew in the jazz world (1970s jazz anyway). He uses the word buttery in comparison to rock cymbals that chirp at a high frequency and decay quickly whereas a good jazz HH (for instance) are lower and slower...

    DCP Threads

    To be honest, all of the replies (ok, except for the funny ones) pretty much amount to this: Well, yeah, those are the rules. . . which of course don't apply so long as and wherever it's good for me. Just seems that way. I will now go back to rolling my eyes every time I see another DCP...

    DCP Threads

    My response would be that the rules only work when they work the same for everyone. If doing advert threads are good, let’s change the rules so we all know going in. I don’t have any issue with DCP. I’m not a hater. I just roll my eyes every time I see one of his threads. Pete

    DCP Threads

    Let’s imagine then that 50 more people or businesses do the same thing. And they’re all good people, and all their videos are useful and appreciated by many. Does it get stopped at 10 or 30 or whatever? Pete

    DCP Threads

    Still gonna put my vote in the “crossed the line” category. IMHO, once we flex the rules for folks that are friends or associates etc, it’s downhill from there. Pete

    DCP Threads

    I’m good with that. I frequent the local GC and would give them generally high marks. But it wouldn’t be appropriate for them to post that kind of adverts posing as discussion. Pete

    DCP Threads

    Correct me if I'm wrong but it sure seems like all of the DCP threads are nothing more than adverts from a retailer rather than discussion between drummers or other interested parties. My recollection is that this isn't allowed by the user agreement. Rain the poop down on me, I can take it. Pete

    Your least played snare(s)

    That is very sad. Those are amazing drums. Wires can be had for a small fortune from time to time on eBay. Pete

    Do I need to do something/fix this used 22' Agop 30th anniversary Ride ?

    I would guess sweat over a long time. Clean it off the best you can an see what it sounds like. I am, however, wondering what kind, size and weight it is. If it were paper thin for instance, I’d approach it differently than if it were a heavy bottom HH. Looks like it’s on the bottom. If so...

    on my home kit I mute the bass drum beater with two toddler socks over it secured with plastic ties.

    Help, 18" ride cymbal?

    I think so much of the ride cymbal size discussion has to do with things like the size of the room you’re playing, type of music, mics or the lack there of, etc. I’ve gone as small as a 700g 12in A Zildjians from the mid 1930s. I needed a ride that leaned hard toward bell during the Christmas...

    I’ve used an iron on the coolest setting to great effect. Just put some cloth between it an the iron. Pete

    Looking for a Pingy Ride

    I had an original Sabian B8 Pro 20in Ride. Wow, ping in da morning and ping in da evening. Pinging ALLLL day long. I would argue, however, that it did one other thing extremely well, it made me want to purchase better cymbals. Pete

    Cymbals choices for Houses of Worship.

    Good news! You get to decide how hard to strike the cymbals so the volume control is in your hands. On a more serious note, there will be times when a louder strike will be called for. And then you’ll already have what you need in front of you.

    Your next planned purchase

    Time for me to purchase a wood snare drum. Vintage 70s Premier is likely. Pete

    Should I stay or should I go?

    That would be fine so long as his meandering came back around to the beat (like a sine wave). Take a listen to Macy Gray and Amy Winehouse (lots of other Jazz/R&B/Soul singers do it too). This idea is a part of their style. BUT, the musicians are clued in from the start and its part of the...
