Re: How to start?

Re: Who has inspired the most to make people play drums?

I didn't know The Tornados were a British group-Telstar was a hugely popular song-with great driving drums. The British Invasion did start a lot of drummers but I think too much credit is given the...

Re: Who has inspired the most to make people play drums?

No there's a correct answer we can objectively measure. We need some math guru to help us. We need some index of popularity of drummer per changing population-remember the world population growth...

Re: New (used) Drums - Pearl Vision

It could be the VBX but it looks like the initial Vision VLX series-I had one I gave my son-in-law looks exactly the same. I believe mine also said birch ply on the badge though it's mixed woods of...

Re: Pain in wrist...is there anything wrong with my technique?

ROFL I wish. No I was in terrible pain-just everywhere. It flipped me into a big pine tree. When I came to I couldn't breathe-I thought I was a gonna for sure. After what seemed hours I was able to...

Re: Pain in wrist...is there anything wrong with my technique?

So they think it's a thoracic outlet syndrome? Neurogenic I gather. I doubt technique is the issue then but a repetitive injury or you had some injury in past. My technique sucks and all my injuries...

Re: Not sure how to do this

It is an interesting topic-there is playing drums and then recording said playing. You screw up either and it sounds bad though. I like playing acoustic small venues cause you know everybody hears...

Re: Any ideas on aging, putting patina on chrome?

Re: tom tuning for 10" 12" 15"

You can try 10,12,15 in pitches- 3C,2G#, 2E or 3C, 2G, 2D. I bet that 15 in will sound great.

Re: How do I tell my friend that his expensive custom handmade snare is shit?

Tell him he has a Gribble infestation-little crustaceans that bore and feed on wood. Tell him the only way to rid the Gribbles is radioactive material that will have to decay-several months-maybe...

Re: I'm thinking about staining the inside of my Pearl SSCs... Am I crazy?

Man the table turned out great GruntersDad. I like the iron legs and the tiny knobs on the side. So do the knobs hold the aprons on or is it one solid thick table top with no apron?

Re: Heel up - arrrgh!

Re: I'm thinking about staining the inside of my Pearl SSCs... Am I crazy?

Man I never knew they were sealed-you could try if sealed it won't penetrate so rub off. I guess you could get red heads lol, or buy some colored kitchen liner or colored film to stick on it. I...
