Re: Well, I did it. (incoming NKD)

Old guitarist trick. Set up the full stack. Only plug in to the stereo on a half stack so that only two speakers are active. Same volume as a twin, but it looks cool and gets the speakers to the...

Re: Drummers who don't play/use a ride cymbal.

Naw, I'm a huge fan. They have elements of The Who, Captain Beefheart, Plastic Ono, etc... The guitar work is pretty good as well.

Their drummer is a bit unconventional and is an entrepreneur of...

Re: Remembering my parts

Writing them is the first step. It's great that you do that.
Recording them is another for forgetful folks like us.

Also, don't be afraid to reinterpret the part every time. It's part of...

Re: Can you turn an "intermediate" kit into a "pro" kit?

Hell yeah, just throw a Kickport on the BD and some Kickport EFX on each tom, and BAM, instant PRO!!

Re: Real Life Whiplash

You can use bleach/water to clean them up, though I would personally toss them. To me, it would be like drinking from an extremely clean toilette.

Re: George Way Drum Co. ?

I've seen some grumblings that these kits are in-fact made in APAC, and not in Canada as the badge would imply. There appear to be a number of ban-hammer incidents on Ron's forum when people ask...

Re: ?uestlove's new Tonight Show Kit

Neat looking kit.

Re: PDP Concept (Birch or Maple) vs Gretsch Catalina Club Classic

@OP. It looks like you have a $700 budget. The name of the game is to get the most drum for the least amount of money. Don't get hung up on brands and lines, and focus on getting the best drums in...

Re: Mike Marsh ddrum signature steel snare

It's a steel snare. It's cool that's it's 5MM, and it's cool that it's 7 inches, and has cast hoops. $140 is almost parts value for the thing. It's only $40 away from impulse-buy range, so if you...

Re: For those who play at church or not.

Back in my touring days, we had a solution for loud rooms. Set up the guitar's half stack with the head on it. Plug the head into a slanted 1x12 greenback cab that was in the floor monitor position...

Re: Snare problems

You don't happen to be talking about a snare bed, right? With my LB417 and LM404 turned upside down, the top of the rim should be 1/4 to 3/8 above the plane of the...

Indeed. This is how I'm working it right now. I can do the hat as quarter notes with my left foot, and I play the pattern of 7 four times while alternating my lead hand. Then I switch to a couple...

Re: George Way Drum Co. ?

I recall a tone-wood chart somewhere in one of my luthier books. I'll try to dig it out to see if it's similar to how tone-woods apply to drum shells. I imagine there are both similarities and...
