Re: Warning - Hidden dangers of drum building.

Fender has been using Pao Ferro on fingerboards for years. Or at least listing it on their spec sheets. Have to take care when re-fretting as well. Although it's not creating as much dust as...

Re: do i need a hi hat mic?

For most live things, cymbals get into everything. Start with a kick mic and then a snare mic. If you sing, leave the mic on over you and it will usually pick up enough snare to help in a small...

Re: A new drumming hero emerges!

Yes, all space must be filled up. And you must beat the lead singer to it. ;-) Love it.

Re: Acoustic Treatment with Carpet Padding?

The ideal thing is rigid fiberglass panels covered in cloth. Some of the studio supply places sell it but look around your area for contractor supply places and OC703. Either the 2" covered and...

Re: A few recording questions

It will cut sound when nothing is happening, but if there is bleed you will still hear things on the track. You can't go back and punch in repairs very easily.

This is the way it was done for...

Re: Hilarious! Gretsch/DW

Andy Doershuck put a post up on Facebook when this came down. Got fairly entertaining. But this is a classic.

Re: Dire Straits....

I felt the same way about Eric Clapton when I was a kid. Took years to understand that it was how he played it that mattered. Taking a simple idea and playing it in a way that makes it special is...

Re: Recommend a metronome app?

The one I'm using now is called Pro Metronome. The iPod like thumb wheel is pretty fast to enter tempos. I've not found one with a direct entry keyboard. If you get the paid version, you can...

Re: Dire Straits....

Been playing Sultans with a new band. The drumming on that kills. Sort of derived from a 2nd line with extras thrown in. It's so smooth and fits the song it doesn't sound that special. Until you...

Re: Snare Sound Help

I'm going to go the other way. I read the OP as wanting more wet snare sound. He says that with it on it has that tight marching drum sound. Of course the studio sound he's after comes from...

Re: Letting go vs focusing

I'll toss another angle into it. Instead of "letting go", what about taking over and owning it? Using the example of the player who intellectually plays all the right notes as written, and sounds...

Re: i just want one kit :/

I have two kits. A Sonor Safari (which I'm using for a quieter gig tomorrow) and my regular fusion sized D'Amico kit (20, 10, 12, 14). I can change heads on either and cover a lot of ground. A set...

Re: Acoustic Foam

How many outside facing walls does this room have? You can try improving those and see how much sound gets out.

Note, that if you seal off a window, you take the room out of being a sleeping...

Re: Acoustic Foam

Half sound power is 6 dB. Sound power being a logarithm. Most times you are trying to get 30-50 dB of reduction if you want to get along with neighbors.

Re: Letting go vs focusing

Amateurs practice until they get it right. Professionals practice until they can't get it wrong.

Be ahead of things in your mind. Think not in terms of whether you will remember or get through a...

Re: Acoustic Foam

The most reasonable middle of the road thing that I can suggest is to remove the drywall, fill with R19 insulation, put iso clips and hat channel (sheet metal furring strips) up and then two layers...

Re: Acoustic Foam

This really needs to be a sticky, since it comes up so often.

Buy Rod Gervais' book on home studio construction. Pretty much everything you need to know is in there in plain terms. The bible of...

Re: Drummers who play other instruments also....

The more you know about music and how the different instruments contribute to an overall sound, the more complementary your own playing will be. Plus, rhythm and time is everyone's job, not just the...

Re: Advertise your next gig here

Sunday the 4th at the formerly famous Condor Club in SF. Apparently what was a famous strip club in the '60s with Carol Doda and all, has been split in half. Weekend afternoons have live music on...

Re: Dampening!!!!!!

Andy was beaten to the punch. The Home Depot ones are already one piece solid wood, not mystery plywood like the production brand ones. ;-)

Re: Who uses Moongel?

You can adjust the amount of damping by how far outward you put it. Right behind the bell just tames things a bit for quiet gigs. Halfway out drys it up quite a bit. Never put it all the way out...

Re: Discouraging & deterring theft on gigs

Pretty much in agreement with everyone. I usually start packing up as soon as the last hit comes down. Cymbals, pedals, snare, fold up the stands and keep them in the back of the stage while...

Re: Drum Etiquette at Open Jams

^^ This. I've seen some great drummers sit down at a horrid kit and drive the band like a freight train, and often get sound out of them that nobody else could. It's easy to be comfortable, doing...
