Re: Are your bandmates interested in your drums

Yeah, true that. I don'tvthink it's necessarily disinterest, mainly just people focused on their own job, getting setup, etc. to notice other players gear. 56? Wow, I didn't know they went back...

Re: Are your bandmates interested in your drums

Great subject. I'm primarily a guitarist, and play with several drummers in various bands.Some I know well, and others I don't. I usually do mention something about their kit, mostly noting what...

Re: Mounting toms on bass drum vs virgin bass drum

I don't mind either setup, but my current set is virgin BD, so that settles it. The Gilbraltar platform stand makes really quick work of setting up 4 pc. Breaks down into 2 sections, memory locks,...

Re: Should bearing edges look like this?

I spent around $70 on a set of precision straight edges from Stewart-Mac. I bought them for guitar set up and luthier work. There are very few truly flat surfaces and they don't come cheap.

Re: Drummers that can't tune drums.

Some of the new digital mixers with USB recording can be pretty hip. Record the sound check, go out front and hear exactly what your kit sounds like with you playing it, in that room, through that...

Re: I saw "Bohemian Rhapsody"

Well said, Who's Tony. They used the standard Hollywood rom com formula. Happy beginning, bring on some conflict, then resolve it for a nice tidy ending. It's a shame, the movie could have been much...

Re: How do YOU Tune?

Toms, by ear-- I like the reso a minor third above batter, and the batter few steps above JAW, at least that's one way. Using the Tune Bot, the batter and reso tend to be closer in pitch to each...

Re: Intro to 'Take it Easy'

As I mentioned in your thread, "Good Day in Hell" is another one the Eagles used the one illusion on, and they keep the illusion going for several bars, through the intro and well into the 1st V....

Re: GOOD Craigslist stories?

Re: The sound behind vs. the sound out front - big differences for you?

Drums come with their own attributes, to be sure, but as a guitarist I would like to say the phenomenon is not unique only to the drum kit. Standing 4 ft in front of my amp does not sound the same as...

Re: Deep bass drums

22x16 seems to be a rare size, is there any particular reason for this, and would there be much difference compared to 22x18?

Re: If you could decide for your favorite manfacturer's standard sizes?

Oh, I have no forum cred to concern myself with. I like the way the 14 fits in tight spaces. I like the 12 tom over the 10 and can understand the preference for bigger toms, I just don't find it as...

Re: If you could decide for your favorite manfacturer's standard sizes?

True . I've read several times how I'm not supposed to like a 10 inch tom or a 14x14 floor tom, but I enjoy the size and sound of both drums.

Re: that wood hoop spacer project

Seems like an easy, effective solution, and looks fine to me. Who's gonna scrutinize floor tom leg brackets anyway. I'm not crazy about the look of the wood hoops on those drums, but life goes on. Do...

Another factor in listening to clips off the internet is the quality of your D to A converter, in addition to whatever speakers you're listening through. There is a difference between a $2500 Apogee...

Re: Struggling with Renowns

Word. I can understand not liking the weight, or the 22x18 BD being difficult to move, but a struggle to tune? Nah. I've never found the need to detune the 5th lug either.

Glad the OP got it...

Re: Kenny Aronoff with John Fogerty

OK then, yeah, Fogerty played most of the leads, mainly on a Les Paul and a Telecaster, and performed admirably. I wouldn't call his style shredding at all though, more pentatonic blues based, but...

Re: Kenny Aronoff with John Fogerty

Yes, they did Old Man Down the Road, Centerfield, a new one he co wrote with Billy Gibbons, which was a nod to La Grange in style. Mostly they did CCR, too many to recall exactly. I do remember Born...
