Re: Drumming and pain

If you're not in pain when you're drumming then you're not drumming hard enough.

Re: We're not copying Travis Barker

I have nothing against people who angle their toms, except for the craigslist postings I see where their toms are on a 90 degree angle, but that's for another day. Angled toms are obviously normal...

Re: We're not copying Travis Barker

I play my toms flat because I feel as if it forces me to play with correct posture rather than just slouching down and smacking away on some angled toms. I also like the look of flat toms more than...

Snare build thoughts?

I have an extra 12x8 wenge rack tom lying around and I've been thinking about converting it into a snare drum. If this goes as planned, I will consider starting a more difficult build- I'd like to...

Re: Ordering Soon: Pearl Masterworks Red Bubinga or Red Tamo w/ Gold Hardware

Out of the two I think the bubinga would look better with the gold hardware. I've seen my fair share of crappy overpriced camaros on craigslist and that sir, isn't one of them. Oh, and am I the only...

Re: How much should I sell my set for?

After checking out that ebay link, I think I may reconsider my options. I'm not too familiar with paypal or shipping online so I can't imagine what the shipping fee will be. I'm not in too much of a...

Re: How much should I sell my set for?

Haha you should patent such a great idea! I planned on selling it straight on craigslist. I'd rather face the risk of getting stabbed for my money than deal with online shipping.



I was afraid...

How much should I sell my set for?

A little while ago, I replaced my Tama Imperialstar with a Gretsch Renown set but I never got around to selling the Tama Imperialstar. I purchased it new in 2007 for $745, crazy right? It came with a...

Re: New kit selection - Gretsch purewood wenge?

Re: double bass issue :\

Try playing heel down double bass at a steady tempo through periods of time, this should help you build up strength and endurance as well as a sense of timing. Also try practicing paradiddles with...

Re: How can i learn a metal song fast?

I usually begin by finding the nearest concrete wall and repeatedly slamming my head into it until I reach a state of unconsciousness. But on a serious note, you can choose to learn a song fast, or...

Re: joey jordison or mapex nomad snare?

I'm not sure what depth your looking for but I have a 13x4 tama metalworks snare and it's easily one of my favorites. A matter a fact the two snares that I had in front of me were the tama metalworks...

Re: Look what I did! (Stave drum build) [PIC HEAVY]

It's beautiful!!! I always wanted to make a snare, there's nothing like being able to build something and call it yours. I was never good at geometry so I feel like I'd have some trouble with a build...

Re: Trying to record a 6 piece drum set

Little update. A few days ago I was at samash and they had a used Tascam US-1800 for $200 which I figured was a good enough deal for me. After taking it home and trying to set it up I realized they...

Re: Trying to record a 6 piece drum set

Re: Trying to record a 6 piece drum set

So a kick, snare, and overheads are all I really need but I figured that having each of the toms mic'd would help bring out more tone and definition. I could get away with mic'ing all 4 toms, the...

Re: I just finally figured to play one handed and footed!

One time when I was playing the drums I dropped a stick and it hit my snare drum. The sound was so crisp and defined, it was amazing, and that was the moment when I realized that I could use my drum...

Re: All 4 fingers on the stick? yes or no?

Re: Gretsch or Crush?

Thanks for all the feedback so far.
I didn't mean to sound naive, it is Gretsch we're talking about, I just wanted to be open minded and look at my options.
Great point, Gretsch has been around...
