Re: Catalina Club Jazz vs. Catalina Maple

I owned the Cat jazz kit fo several years and I would not consider it versatile. Sure you can "get close" but unless your primary gig is a jazz combo I would get something with at least a 20" kick...

Re: Why is it you never see threads saying....

Cymbals are odd birds. I can tweak a set of drums with tuning, head choice stick choice, muffling etc and get a wide range of possibilities.

Generally with cymbals, they are what they are. I...

Re: Trimmed down kits

1) Everyone but the jazzers went to bigger kits back then.
2) They did it in the 80's/90's. Why wouldn't people choose to do it again?
3) They are available in several configurations with addon...

Re: Trimmed down kits

Well unfortunately the vast majority are not jazzers. I love jazz, but I don't play it. It ended for everyone else in the 70's through the 80's. I saw plenty of locals giging the bigger kits back...

Re: Do we really need expensive drums?

I think part of the issue is defining "midrange". My old 7pc M Birch kit and my current Concept Maple 7pc would both be considered "midrange". As good as the Mapex drums are, they had aspects I...

Re: Trimmed down kits

I don't think it will take that long. We are long into small kit / conservative / keep it simple era. I sense people not in cover bands are getting a little bored with it and are looking to play...

Re: Trimmed down kits

Nonsense. The creative player is exactly who SHOULD have the large kit.

Re: Natural Talent or a Learned Skill??

"Talent" determines how many "skills" you can develop and how long it will take to master them

Re: What happened to the resonance?

Not necessarily but its a very real possibility as well. I have had this happen with isolation mounts.

Move the drum up and down the mounting arm in small increments and see what happens. If you...

Re: Why ya' gotta be so dark?

Speaking from my experience, darker cymbals record better to my ear. They also tend to be quieter which is also helpful in the studio. I have a Sweet ride and a few Armand crashes but typically I use...

Re: Why ya' gotta be so dark?

My KCon is a wonderful ride for small group jazz. Sits nicely under the horns with enough stick to hear the rhythm out front.

Its the last cymbal I would pick for a big band gig. Thats not really...

Re: Natural Talent or a Learned Skill??

Its both. There are some people who could practice all day everyday and never play the the most basic rhythm in time. There are others who race through the preliminaries quite quickly. To advance to...

Re: Am I the only one here that hated the Kick Port?

I have never quite understood the need for more "bottom". I get more than enough and often have to cut some on the kick drum mic.

Re: Drums vs. cymbals

Cheap kit with nice cymbals. I can do things to improve the sound of the kit. Cymbals are what they are

Re: Recording in the studio

Sadly there is truth to this. If they want to use samples they should not waste the drummers time and just program it. Thats really all you have after sample replacement and beat detection. To be...

Re: Batter / Resonant

I have tried the various methods and I always come back to tuning both heads to the same pitch. It seems to minimize the effect of the room since there are not 2 different pitches interacting and...
