your wisdom woodshed
 
this thread is dedicated to the practice drumkits and drum rooms or woodsheds we use. its not meant for gig kits but as a way of looking at how we surround ourselves and set ourselves up so we can progress. see dom famularo's ideason his now famous wisdom woodshed.

so i will start:

Hahahaha. My favorite part of that post is how you put the animal puppet as #1!

Cool set man, I really like the look of that E kit. How do you like it? I think my parents are thinking about getting me that, especially afater I got double bass. They cant take it.

That room is awesome man. I think thats how my room is going to be in a few years; drum stuff laying all over the place, in every corner in the room.

Btw, I like the picture on Dave Weckyls book. He looks like an 80s hair metal rocker lol.

  • its nearly silent. the bass spurs ar on a carpet resting on the stone of the old fireplace so there is no bass through the floor boards.
  • the sounds and options from roland are awesome.
  • i love the fact that i can mix my cds with my playing and get great volume balance without having to blast my ears with accoustic drum levels.
  • also the module has a very versatile metronome which allows for all sorts of odd time signatures.
  • another advantage is being able to record myself playing a new idea very slowly and carefully, then speeding it up to see if it really does sound muscial at top speeds...then i can modify it or keep it, safe in the knowledge that when i can play it fast it will sound great.

ps: thank goodness i live in the era where poodle rocking hairstyles are a thing of the hilarious past.

pps: animal is a must. he reminds me not to take myself too seriously...i love drumming for the wildness as well as the art.

Electronic drums instead of accoustic, and PC instead of Mac....

I'll pass.


;-)


When we move into my new house next weekend (A huge house even by US Standards in the country, detached, no neighbors!) I'll start to make one of the 9 rooms into a woodshed!

hehe yes! that's one thing I sometimes have done with my v-drums. Even a few times i would record one beat, and then overdub fills (involving toms, snare, and bass) on top of the same track in the module. Then i would use the faders and listen to each instrument on its own and write out the part for the whole set. And then learn it! Whew, its tricky stuff, but quite insane.

My little practice room, 10'x11' with my stuffs. I did my kick practice pad from some pieces of wood i had, so how to turn a boring cold sunday afternoon into something cool.This room is in my basement where was my oil heating system, i ripped it off and did some soundproofing. So this is my place.

NUTHA JASON 03-02-2006 08:05 AM

Re: your wisdom woodshed
 
very nice. i like your kick practice pad.

the sound in that room must be very loud with all those hard walls. when you play the kit do you wear ear protection?

j

sly1965 03-02-2006 02:55 PM

Re: your wisdom woodshed
 
yes, i wear ear protection most of the time but the room is pretty dry. In the wall, i have safe'n'sound wool plus a Sonopan board and a resilient bar betwin the Sonopan and the plaster board.also i putted a 1/4" foam under the carpet. ceiling same as the walls but i will put a suspended ceiling instead of the plaster board. Cool place to hide when you're the only man in the house lolllll.

Drum room
 
If I wanted to build a space in my relatively small attic to play drums what would be the minimum size for a 5 piece kit a fan/heater and a CD player and speakers?

best situation for practice?
 
Ok... so I was thinking, some guys like having their drums in their room... others like to have them on a room or garage outside their house... others prfer to have their kit on a rehearsal room or studio of their band... wich is your preferred setup, either that you have or wish?

In my case, I am so lucky, ha, ha, ha... after YEARS of not being able to play at home, at my job, one of the important aspects for my "drafting" was my own, exclusive room for drums, right at the office... two doors from mine... Man... it is great I have 2 acoustic sets there ALL THE TIME... ha, ha, ha... can't complain.

Re: best situation for practice?
 
I've got drums skattered all over town. I have my gig kit in cases at the house along with a beat up practice set with a few cymbals set up in a spare bedroom at the house. My good cymbals are set up at the practice studio along with a Pearl Export that belongs to my guitar player's son. It kind of sucks not being able to keep all my good gear in one place to practice on. The only time they all come together is when we gig. On another note, I once had a practice pad set up at my work. It was pretty awesome- downtown on the 3rd floor of my work there was a little room with two windows looking out at the city. I would go up there after work and lose myself for a couple of hours. Unfortunately, we had to knock down the wall and convert that space for extra warehousing. I miss those days.

Re: best situation for practice?
 
I hear you... we're moving in two and a half months... this will be musch better facility, but it's a shared building... my prospects are not to good... ha, ha, ha... oh well, back to the DTX.

i have my drums in my basement. i can play from 9AM-7PM everyday, it's great. im really gonna hate it when i move out.....i can always be one of those italian men who live with their mothers until im 40 :D

harryconway 03-31-2006 05:11 AM

Re: best situation for practice?
 
For some 13 years now I've maintained a rehearsal room outside and away from the home completely. So when I go there I focus on what I need to do there. No household distractions. Also, some cats you might jam with one or two times and that's it. Don't particularly need everyone to know where I live. And then I need to be respectful of the wonderful woman in my life. And I need not force my drumming into her life such that it's disturbing her homelife. That would be a bit selfish on my part.

rendezvous_drummer 03-31-2006 05:20 AM

Re: best situation for practice?
 
right on man, respect the woman. im planning to building a sound proof section add on to the house soon with the little knowledge i have about building rooms, so that'll be fun

This is my (very basic) woodshed. It's in my bedroom so before i study, i usally grab my chair and sit in front of the pad with my sticks. first. (and play rudiments of course)
I got my guitar over there too, i usualy play it before i go to sleep.
I forgot to take my swiss knife away, but i love that thing. I've used it for so many things it's always near me.

I use both regular sticks as the aheads. (both 5A)
I practice my rudiments with the aheads as well because i use them for gigging so i'll have the feel of those sticks aswell.

In the process of building a new Woodshed, as this room is so small you could'nt swing a dead cat without hitting someone.

NUTHA JASON 04-24-2006 08:29 AM

Re: your wisdom woodshed
 
can't swing a cat but can swing a six foot horn span. lol.
