Re: Help in finding the 'perfect snare drum'

I can't comment on the 13" Craviotto's. But I've got a 5.5x14 that sounds amazing. Super sensitive. I honestly don't think you can go wrong with a Craviotto if you've got the money for it.

Re: Playing Jazz...

I believe you're talking about song form, yes?

You've kinda just got to feel it. Listen to the changes. Get to know the tunes you're playing. The melody should be running in your head as you're...

Exactly! It's all about the notes you don't play.

Re: My tiny...tiny kit.

I love playing with this kind of set-up. It really makes you focus on independence and being musical. In fact, I'm in a Hard Bop Lab thing right now. It's kind of like a session but with a "coach" or...

Re: The book that influenced you the most.

'Art Of Bop Drumming' for me too.

Re: smaller kits

That's my suggestion. That's exactly what I did. I built a tiny kit (7x10, 13x13 with a 13x16 bass drum). Volume is not a problem. Go to www.drumfoundry.com. You could get everything you need there....

Re: Your Greatest "AH-HA" Moment

My greatest ah-ha moment came from listening to recordings of our rehearsals.
I play in a boogaloo (soul-jazz) band. I was trying to do way too much.
Ah-ha! All I really have to do is lay down a...

Re: Lack of emphasis on hats in jazz

Re: New Craviotto Snare

Mine had a Aquarian Modern Vintage head on it when I got it. Sounded too dead to me. Put on a Remo Coated Ambassador and now it sounds fantastic. I'd leave the snare wires on. Nothing wrong with 'em....

Anyone work with Glass Glitter before?

How hard is it to work with Glass Glitter? Some sites say it's brittle and breaks/tears easy. But I've also heard that it's not much more difficult than your regular sparkle or pearl wrap.

Re: Coffee shop drum kit

That's the best idea I've read on this thread. I wanted to post that many times but didn't know if you'd be into it from what you were saying you wanted. Do it. You'll be happy.

Staining Keller Shells

I'm thinking about putting together a little kit. I'll be using Craviotto's Little New York Jazz Kit's specifications. 7.5X10, 13X13, 14X16. I know it's small but I really like the sound. (I've got a...

Re: Hipgig vs. Gretsch Jazz

As far as snares go in the $200 range... check out Pork Pie's Big Black snare. 6.5x14 brass with tube lugs. It's basically a Black Beauty copy but for only $240 at Guitar Center. I've got it cranked...

Re: Black Beauty Snares vs. Knock-Offs

I just picked up the Pork Pie Big Black snare. It's a 6.5X14 copy of a Black Beauty.
It sounds great and feels solid. It's got tube lugs and the throw-off feels more solid and smooth than the one...
