Re: whats the difference between press roll and buzz roll?

A press roll would be used more in marching snare right? When you dig real hard on a falam head? I wouldn't press too hard on a regular head in fear of ruining it.

Re: Planning my next kit, looking for feedback

I would skip on the hydaulic heads. They make drums sound like cardboard boxes! If you want something with a little more control that will still provide good tone, I would grab the EC2's. I use those...

Re: anyone use ear protection whilst playing

Re: Playing double kick feels extremely awqward

I would deffinitely say that my set up has a bit to do with my double bass playing. Seat position and height in particular. If i'm not seated correctly my legs just don't work as quickly.
