Re: Anybody seen these yet?

I took a look on their site. Looks to be a concept maple shell with two finish combinations and wooden hoops. At $900 retail, I can't imagine that they've upgraded much other than the aesthetic. ...

Re: How to you construct your parts?

There's no end to the methods employed by writers.

You might take one of your academic grooves and use it as a foundation, writing the rest of the song around it. You might be asked to compliment...

Re: NDD: New Kit Day Tama Starclassic Performers B/B, No more buyers remorse

Awesome!

I think there's a section to the forum called "my gear" or something, but it's often overlooked. Grunt will occasionally move a post but all-in-all, it's not something you get...

Re: Tips on replacing Renown GTS

Will do. The Ebay'ed 14" will be here mid-week. Expect a ping the week of the 11th.

The lug pattern for RN->RN1 remained the same. I can't imagine why this wouldn't work, but, ya know?

Re: Tips on replacing Renown GTS

It was a consideration, but I'm a bit finicky about the aesthetic. Cost isn't really a concern. While I'm not an OCD case, I have a fondness for uniformity that I rarely get to indulge.

Re: Tips on replacing Renown GTS

I ordered a 12x14" floor tom on eBay, but it is suspension mounted. I have the following two options for putting legs on it.

Order 3 GS9025 brackets for the floor tom ($105)
Order 3 legs for the...

Re: Tips on replacing Renown GTS

A google search came up inconclusive. Guess there's only one way left to find out.

I'll ping if it works out.

Re: Tips on replacing Renown GTS

Indeed. The new mounts appear to include two modified lugs. The two lugs you see are different than those included with the shell. They appear to have an additional protrusion on the bottom that...

Tips on replacing Renown GTS

I'm beginning the process of replacing the old 4-lug GTS mounts on my Gretsch toms with the newer non-ridiculous ones. Has anyone here done this yet? What were the results? Is anything going to...

Re: Bass pedal adjustment question

When striking a BD, you can either pull the beater away, or you can bury the beater. Each makes a distinct sound. If you do neither of those, you run the risk of the unintentional double strike,...

This is why brothers shouldn't play in a band together.

Re: 8 piece kits for reasonable prices?

To make an over-generalization:

As the acoustic dynamics of music go down (think of thrash metal, which is almost always loud/fast/intense), musicians tend to compensate by increasing the number...

Re: 8 piece kits for reasonable prices?

In today's vernacular, you're not looking for a kit, you're looking for a "shell bank".

Today's "kit" configurations ship in 2 boxes. Manufactures typically release 3 BD configs and 2 tom...

Re: for sale - east coast

Understand that the objective of buying and selling drums is the same. You want to get the most for the least without any sort of misrepresentation.

The price you're asking is fine. Most of the...

Re: My fills are always in 8th notes/slower note rates, help!

Indeed. Not to mention accent placement and swing.

Ringo's "She Said" intro fill is straight 16th notes. It's the accent placement and swing that make it awesome.

Re: Jazz Drumming, and its benefits for rock

I was quite struck by Jimmy Chamberlain's work on the first Smashing Pumpkins album. It was neat because there was so much jazz-influenced-drumming bleeding through. It had an almost uncanny feel...

Re: Improving Groove

Yes. Simply watch any exposition video and it should give you an idea.

Re: My fills are always in 8th notes/slower note rates, help!

Having trouble understanding, as all fills are 8th and 16th notes.... Are you saying that the fills you play:

Are straightforward single strokes, with little variation?
Rarely use triplets?

Re: My fills are always in 8th notes/slower note rates, help!

Would love to hear a sample of the issue before commenting. Is the material that you play particularly conducive to straight 8th/16th fills (AD/CD)?
