Re: taking care of your body

Hi Jake, i just read about Phil Collins and it makes me even more concerned about playing. I think posture is probably the most important. Phil used to sing while playing, which I think contributed...

Re: Where were you 8 years ago?

I was driving back to the DC area at the time. (I live up the hill from the Pentagon - the side that was hit). When I finally reached my house it wreaked of smoke. It was devastating. I grabbed a few...

Re: Ideal length for a drum solo?

Ideal length for a drum solo?

Re: Calling Yamaha Maple Custom Absolute Nouveau Users

Just a thought- have you tried tightening the screws from the inside of the drum? Sometimes due to weather, vibrations, etc. the lug casings come loose from the shell. I know it's a pain to remove...

Re: Small holes near bearing edge?

Thanks for the replies! Wasn't sure if this was common or not.

The drum is a Taye Studio Maple 14x6, which came from the factory with a "Dynaton" batter head. That snare sounded great and that...

Small holes near bearing edge?

I was replacing the batter head on a maple snare I bought about 2 years ago and noticed three or four small square holes near the bearing edge. This was the first head replacement from the stock head...

Re: interesting micing techniques

There's so much you can try if you have time to experiment. A room can have many interesting sweet spots. When I first got a mic with switchable polar patterns, I had my girlfriend help me...

Re: cant get my snare to stop rattling when i hit my 10" tom!

This is typical sympathetic resonance. Ultimately you are going to have to make a sacrifice or live with it.

Have you tried pitching the 10" resonant head up a bit?

I would sacrifice the tuning...

Re: Floor Tom

Yes sir I love floor toms. 16x16 is of course my favorite. Especially love to play timpani-like rolls on the edge. I try to tune the rezo head to compliment the bass drum too. I now fly a china...

Re: to mic ot not to mic?

If the vocal mics are SM58s or similar and that's all you have access to, I would mic the kick drum and place the other directly overhead. Have a great show.

What do you mean? Sweet spot for the beater? Tuning? Mic placement? Sweet spot in the room? In a mix? Please be more specific.

Re: Observations about tuning

Oftentimes it's the rezo heads that need tightening if they sound too flat from the audience perspective.

Re: Drum hoodie?

Why not just design your own and have them custom made?

Many local T-shirt shops can help, or you can use places like Cafe Press:

Re: Does miking make the drummer

A lot of good points here.

I think a lot of factors need to be considered in addition to the mics. Ultimately it starts with WHO is playing WHAT and WHERE. If you sat at Garrison's kit and put his...

Re: Dual Drummers- ever wondered why?

Sometimes I'll set up two kits in the jam room although it gets very cramped. I'm a lefty and I'll set up a righty kit so others can sit in without having to rearrange a whole kit.

Re: The Holy Grail of Yamaha Birch Kits

That's because the drums are so ugly that it makes you look better. Haha, only kidding. What about those of us who play with our eyes closed? Colorblind?
