Re: Re-training My foot? My pedal? Both?

Your video was very informative and helpful, since you explained the technique in great detail and addressed some important questions I've had since working on transitioning to heel up (being a heel...

Re: Best drum teacher in youtube

I've learned quite a few grooves by watching Jared and downloading his transcriptions.
He is no nonsense, with non-ego, clear instructions, and fun to watch!
You don't need a world-class drummer to...

Re: The session guys!

I love watching Kenny play. So simple but so much in the groove and fun to watch that as it unfolds in his performances. His instructional videos have taught me some important basics, whether just...

Re: Quick doubles on the kick

Hi Bill B:
I am transitioning from a lifetime of playing heel down to more of the heel up style. It's taken quite a while since my lower back muscles weren't engaging in heel down and control is...

For stick technique and rudiments, Bill Bachman.
He doesn't have all his videos for free on YT, but there's a lot. I took his 2 week free course offer to soak up and download his lessons as much as...

Losing a Cymbal Wingnut at Tangelwood Live

Ever happen to you live? Looks like Danny's ride cymbal wing-nut got lost on the floor while changing his cymbal and adjusting the stand in-between songs.
I've been wanting to upgrade my stock ones...

Re: Bill Bachman's Drumworkout.com - One Week Free Access

I signed up and went through all the lessons, just to make sure I didn't miss any before my subscription expired. Then I went back and focused on certain ones for a good while, practicing along with...

Re: Ludwig Club Date for $499

My Club Date SE bass drum seems to fit fine in my 20 x 14 Ahead Armour bag by just folding down the spurs.
I have enough room left over and also to fold down the stock rail mount, although I...

Re: Danny Seraphine

Thank you for posting that. I love to watch Danny play and to see him currently is even more of a treat. He was one of my longest inspirations in drumming from the beginning of hearing him play...

Re: Little Jazz Drumset

New Sonor Safari's trade for $389 and used way less than that. They are easily tweaked to give big sounds by simply changing the stock heads. I love my set and use it in small venues. The 16 x 16...

Re: Ah screw it! I'm cheating...

A bona fide endorsement- That would also work for me!
I hope that there's no drummer out there when I play next :)

Re: New Cavern Club Date kit tom mount

No, I can't fold my mount down flat. I saw your prior posts about refitting the wingnut with a smaller version to give it room to flatten out.
I'll try to figure out something since this is...

Re: New Cavern Club Date kit tom mount

The puzzle has ended for me.

He said that although they didn't have the Club Dates in their Indiana offices to determine the tom...

Re: New Cavern Club Date kit tom mount

Thanks for suggesting alternate mounts. Is there any Gibraltar mount that can accommodate both the tom and a ride cymbal? I've noticed you have installed a ride arm on your bass drums, I...

Re: New Cavern Club Date kit tom mount

Thanks for the info.
I must have overestimated how non-movable the mount was.
I tend to be too cautious.
Good to know for future reference.
I'm now a certified expert at unbolting interior shell...

Re: New Cavern Club Date kit tom mount

Tom mount now fixed for a lefty.
This required removing the batter head to access the bolts holding down the rail since the rail won't move and the mount itself can't be repositioned.
I just turned...

I'm going to look into this rail removal tomorrow.
Yea, you're correct about being involved with the handling.

Re: New Cavern Club Date kit tom mount

Bo:
That would be the easy fix, but I can't get the tom mount to come off the rail.
Even after unscrewing the tom clamps which are on the rail, the mount won't come off so I can't turn it around....

I've been wanting to try a larger bass drum than my Sonor Safari Kit has (16), but one with 14" depth. I'm keeping the Safari since I have it tweaked just where I like the sound. After shopping...
