Re: Sound proofing Idea

Interesting proposal, Im sure you could reduce the sound a decent amount by using a booth, and some heavy duty sound barriers over the windows and doors, but the foam won't do much unless the room is...

Re: IEM/Headphones with Microphone Outfront

In terms of monitoring, if it is a small venue and the stage volume is well balanced, then I will usually only need some kick drum in my monitors.

If you are trying to capture other musicians in...

Re: Last piece of gear you forgot?

I forgot my hi hat clutch once (I think you call it that, the device that attaches the top hihat to the stand) and had to play the show with no hi hat movement, something in between a closed and a...

Last Minute Gig Fees

If you are called upon by a cover band to learn their setlist for a gig within a week or less time, what do you charge them? Do you take the drummers usual cut? Or bargain with them for more because...

Re: Why I Never Collected Famous People’s Autographs

I also agree that the memory of the time I have had with famous musicians is much more precious to me than having their signature. Having a chat, sharing a laugh or gathering insight will always be...

Re: Red Gum Stave Build

Well just to give everyone an update, Australia post has incorrectly delivered my parcel of drum parts and have told me it could take up to two weeks to relocate the parcel, if at all.

Re: Do you own (or want to own) both acoustic and electric kits?

I was at a gig last night and the drummer happened to be using an electronic kit. It is an annual festival near where I live and every year I can remember the drummer has always used an acoustic.

Re: Do you own (or want to own) both acoustic and electric kits?

I have got a stage custom set, and a roland with a td9 brain and mesh heads on all the drums. I have had my acoustic for 6 years and electric for around 3, and I use them both equally today.

Re: Red Gum Stave Build

The wood was dried for about 6 months since it was cut. It was a bit risky to build the drum due to any future warping/shrinking, however I was too excited and couldn't wait any longer. I also spoke...

Re: Red Gum Stave Drum Build

So the staves are 16mm deep, 57mm wide on the outside edge, and 165mm deep. The finished drum is to be a 14"x6.5". Angles on the staves were 9 degrees either side, and the final diameter of the drum,...

Re: Do I Need A New Drum Teacher?

Yep I agree with everyone else here, 4 years is not enough experience at all. I consider myself a decent drummer but would not consider myself a great teacher, and I've only played 6 years. Many...
