Re: Using tuning to muffle 18" bass?

In my Gretsch Catalina 18 inch bass drum, I put an Evans EQ pad inside, but it does not touch the heads. It soaks up the high frequencies bouncing around inside of the drum. I had to modify the pad...

Re: Little experiment I did

Actually, it should be Lars's Ultip. All singular possessive nouns get 's. Peace and goodwill.

Re: When playing one up and one down...

I play a one up, one down kit, but not to get the ride cymbal closer because I play open handed with the ride over by the hats. I have a crash cymbal where most drummers would put the ride. I...

Re: How many times have you been asked...

The last time I played at a a party, a let our guitarist's nephew play a few tunes. I was told he is not a basher, and it was nice to hear the drums and cymbals from out in front. Peace and...

Re: My new "Yes I can play" kit ;)

Did you spend more for the Pearl tom mount than you did for the 12 inch tom? I like the kit. The next time we have blues band practice, I am going to take my toms that do not match just because I...

Re: DW Jazz Over Gretsch??

They sound like drums, and that is all anyone else besides a drummer will think. Get what appeals to you for whatever reason and have fun playing. Peace and goodwill.

Re: Hilarious! Gretsch/DW

That is from the movie Downfall, which is the most realistic movie I have ever seen, and I have seen way more than my share of movies.

That video is very funny. Peace and goodwill.

Re: playing less and keeping time

On a slow, simple song, pretend you wrote it. That helps a lot. Peace and goodwill.

Re: Singing and playing?

I have sung in every band I have been in. Most of the time, the drums sort of go on "auto pilot." I have been doing it for a very long time, so I do not remember it being a problem. Peace and...

Re: Kind of an odd question?

That mostly depends on the stereo. From what you said, I doubt yours will do what you want. You could get an adapter to plug two headphones into the same jack. Good luck. Peace and goodwill.

Re: How do you guys learn a song?

It depends on the tune and how familiar I am with it. Most of the time, I listen to it a few times. If I was playing prog or fusion or jazz, it would be different. I am playing blues-rock, a style...

Re: I suck at power ballads.

I read a long time ago in Modern Drummer, when playing a slow song (or any other type you have trouble with), pretend that you wrote it. It has worked for me. Peace and goodwill.

Re: Band PA ownership options - thoughts, experiences

In the past we pieced together a PA from what the different members already had. That way there is no question about who owns it. I have a small mixer/amp, two small speakers, and a good Crown...

Re: Hey Lefty Drummers

I am left handed and right footed, so I play open handed. I live in the boondocks, so there is no jam night situation for me to deal with. Peace and goodwill.

Re: Looking for a new drum kit, seeking advice

Any of them will be good. Choose by the tom mounts and other hardware. Some do not like the Pearl tom arms, but they are OK with me. I have owned all three brands, and all of them will get the job...
