Re: Different, unique, or just wacky set-ups

Along the same lines, how about Col Hatchman from Australian blues rock band Nat Col and the Kings. Take special note of the HIGH hat.

Here's a clip of him playing that monstrosity:...

Re: Beginner drummer- sound question

You can use a Y-splitter cable to send it to your earbuds and to an external sound source at the same time, but you'll need some serious volume to hear it over a drum kit.

Do your kids wear any...

Re: So long story short, I'm a bass player now

Haha! I have actually thought about that situation, and I hope I'll be able to keep my mouth shut and let him/her put their own mark on my parts. Unless it's an essential bit, but I really don't have...

Re: So long story short, I'm a bass player now

Thanks Andy. Yeah, I'm sure I'm not done with drums quite yet :)




I've played guitar since my early teens, so I'm pretty comfortable on a fretboard. I've never felt confident enough as a...

Re: So long story short, I'm a bass player now

Thanks all. Yeah, I don't plan on selling my kit just yet. Once we get a new drummer it will probably be stashed in a corner of our rehearsal room for a while.



Bad choice of words perhaps - I...

Re: Good news & mini session report.

That's a lot of reverb on that snare. I love it :)

The tune sounds immense, and great work.

That's a pretty legendary studio (at least for me) just down to the fact that Nolly Getgood frequents...

So long story short, I'm a bass player now

tl;dr: Drums are loud, big, obnoxious and definitely not family friendly, so I've taken the plunge and switched to bass in my band. Anyone else found themselves in similar situations?

It's been a...

Re: Worst expensive snare you've ever owned?

Ludwig Black Beauty.

Great sound, terrible, terrible hardware. Rimshots would detune it down to finger-tightness within half a song, along with loosening the snares down to an annoying rattle. The...

Re: Most Random bit of equipment that's failed at a gig

Been fairly lucky so far - The only drum I've had fail on me was a strainer that died on me at a festival gig.

The "drum tech" was nowhere in sight (I later spotted him chatting up the girl behind...

Re: Help finding a certain drummer

I don't know who it could be, but if you were logged into YouTube when you watched it, it will be in your YouTube watch history:

Maybe you'll find it there?

Re: Poor Mapex

The dark hardware is optional (and costs extra). The badge doesn't bother me, but I guess it depends a bit on what finish the kit is. On my Oyster Red (with chrome hardware ;), I don't find it...

Re: My New Kit: Mapex Saturn V Tour

There's no need to specifically search for threads to repost this rant in, mate.

It's a shame you've had a bad experience with the brand. I'm personally on my third Mapex kit (one was the old M...

Re: Drum/music Terminology: Downbeat

For me the "downbeat" generally means the first beat of a measure.

"Upbeat" for me generally describes the "ands" between beats. So in my mind, the classic disco beat would have the kick on 1 and...

Re: Anyone ever play in full drum enclosure?

I hope that thing is well ventilated; it looks like it could easily get pretty hot during the course of a gig.

Re: What's the deal with Nicko McBrain's name?

If you're talking about his last name, a quick google search reveals that it's a very old name from Scotland.

It really bothers me more than it should that those front two crashes sound exactly the same.

Re: Rack Toms Angled or Flat

People have been saying it's a fad for at least 15 years now.

I'm sure plenty of players set up like that to look cool, but all of them? There are top players in bands who fill arenas every night...

Re: Rack Toms Angled or Flat

I have mine set pretty much flat.

First of all, I'm tall, and it works well with my grip, which naturally tends to keep my sticks pretty level with my forearms. I also enjoy having easy access to...

Re: Is my leg position ok for the kick drum?

That's perfectly fine - There's no reason to line your foot up with the footplate as long as you're comfortable.

You'll see fast kick players swivel their heel left an right constantly, or move...
