Re: I like cheap snares

I don't think I read anyone saying that cheap snares sound 'just as good' as expensive ones. Maybe I missed it.

For me, and for most of the posts I read, it sounds like people are saying that...

Re: Cheap recording/editing program?

I use synthesizers, and the ones I use the most have midi release velocity.

The only programs I've found that can record it are Cubase and Logic.
Reaper, Cakewalk, Studio One, and the others I've...

Re: Drummers around 5'6" - What size drums do you have?

Much clearer idea with a picture - thanks.

Doesn't look like it'd work for me, for the same reason I can't get used to a double pedal on the kit. Too wide of a spread between the feet/legs.

Re: I like cheap snares

I'm a big fan of the stock Stage Custom wood snares. But my experience with them is pretty opposite.
I don't find them dead, but extra ringy, woody and thumpy - all at the same time.
I damp them...

Move the bass drum off to which side? Play it with your foot at an angle?

Re: More $$ than drums, I guess

Yep - the Gretsch is nice.

But man-oh-man, that clock is something special. Hang onto that one.
We gotta' go now. LOL

Ha ha - blast from the past.
Here's my pic from the 'driver's seat' thread. Yamaha Stage Custom kit w/20" bass drum. I've switched to a 13" from a 14" snare since then:...

Re: Cheap recording/editing program?

Audacity is a great program - for what it is.

That said, there's entry level programs from most of the DAW's. Everyone will have their favorite.
I like Cubase best, but also have older...

Re: "intermediate level drum kits jazz" which to buy?. and which choose..

I don't care for 16" bass drums.
The Tama is birch. I've got a Yamaha bop kit that's birch and it's kind of bright sounding, but sounds real good tuned up a little higher.

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

If it's a kit you're going to keep, and it makes you happy, then go for it.
If you ever plan to sell it though....

Re: Are there fewer demands for a drummer now, than before?

This ^^^^ is your second comment.

I think I addressed it fairly well in my post.
If not, I either misunderstood, or you need to state your question more clearly, dude.

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

There are some few examples of mid level kits using the same shells as pro level kits.
They just installed different hardware (and maybe heads) on the shells.
Ran across a few, but can't think...

Re: What makes a pro kit?

Most has been covered already, but I do think there's (sometimes) something to the saying that when you pay more, you get more.
Not always though - you have to look and inspect.

Re: Yamaha Live Custom Oak - opinions?

Would you happen to have a picture of that kit you could post?
If you already did, I must have missed it.
Do you have the 10 and 13 up top?

Re: New kit....don't know why though

I'd say play 'em for a while and then consider gifting them to a GOA drummer (or a future GOA drummer).

Re: Yamaha drum kit, need advice.

I would buy those for that price.
They'll need a bit of cleaning up, but you'll have a good sounding set to work with.

Is all the drum related stuff (stands, cymbals, snare, etc.) included with the set?

Re: Are there fewer demands for a drummer now, than before?

Too broad.

First of all, there's live drumming. Just as much skill is required as at any other time. There's no real short cut to paying your dues.
I think there's less call for live drumming...

Re: New Drum Set

Have you tried some?

I'd say, go look at a bunch of drums, try them out if possible,
and then get the ones you want that fall within your budget.
