Re: Mangini v. Portnoy

MM playing is more subtle compared to Portnoys. But what sounds like a standard groove is very far from that. On that not it is comparing apples to oranges. Both are fantastic drummers, despite...

Re: What size is your main snare? Why?

I usually take two snares with me, a 14"x6.5" Bubinga Stave Shell which is great for that meaty metal and rock stuff. But I use a 13"x5" as my secondary which I crank up for added dynamics in...

Re: Beware of Mr Baker

I look forward to this. Always been a fan of the inner workings of Cream and the absolute craziness that is Baker.

Re: Uh-oh, gig time!

Re: Paiste PST8 ???? When Did That Happen ?

I wonder if the PST8 series are sort of in the same line as the old 802 series cymbals. I had an whole Paiste 802 20" Ride and it sounded amazing for what it was.

Re: What brand of kit do you play?

Tama Superstar Hyperdrive kit (birch shells). The reason is I love the shallow depths, die-casts and the sturdy hardware. And they sound great.

Re: Neil Peart's drum sound

You could say that Steve Gadd has an atrocious drum sound as well. But its the way he attacks those drums that make them sound fantastic. I'd have to say the same with Mr. Peart. A good drum sound...

Purchased a custom bubinga stave snare drum with die-casts and offset lugs for $495 (Australian Dollars) = $526 US from a local Australian drum builder. Made me very happy.

Re: Neil Peart's drum sound

I don't doubt they aren't quality heads, just thought considering he has endorsements coming from everywhere that he would endorsee a third-party band away from DW (but he likes them). As for tuning...

Re: Terry Bozzio, The Black Page and me.

I was always surprised that Neil never replaced the stock heads on his DW kits.
