Re: Well this is humbling: Hit Like A Girl, Bonham edition

When I was 8, I didn't know that I wasn't supposed to be able to play "Jessica (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oidm5Zfw_SA)" with my father's band. It just happened, and I had a lot of fun with it....

Re: Kenny Aronoff with John Fogerty

I have a theory that Kenny Aronoff is really several different drummers who all shave their heads and don the familiar sports-specs. Either that, or he's a time traveler from the future capable of...

Re: The longest wait?

Pick a hard limit (it was a year for me) that you're willing to wait. and communicate it to your merchant. When you hit the hard limit, bail.

When I ordered my kit, I went through CME and put...

Re: Do you keep your cardboard boxes?

The only drum box typically worth keeping is the snare box.

The Ludwig box my BB came in was a godsend when I sold/shipped my classic-maple.

I typically store the boxes for high-cost items for...

Re: 24x14 vs 22x16 - Can't Decide!

Soundwise....... It's not going to make a lot of difference. The extra 2" buys you about two steps chromatically, but it's down so low it's not something you use outside of expositions. ...

Re: Theory: Nobody wants anything new

I was under the impression he was referring to the attendees and vendors at NAMM.

He begins, "attending a few years of NAMM shows" and then generalizes "those people"... He then normalizes into...

Re: Quick Drum Survey

Complete.

Note, you're missing "Low" tom tuning, which is in between JAW and Medium.

I like to call it "JAJAW", or "Just above, Just above wrinkle"

Re: Wood stain on a Fiberskyn !

My concern was twofold:
1: You ruin your shirts.
2: You put some light streaks in the face of the BD and ruin the new appearance.

On the flip side, it makes a great practical joke for...

Re: Wood stain on a Fiberskyn !

Looks interesting.... Do me a favor...

Put on a white T-Shirt.

Do 3 reps of 30 push-ups, 3 reps of 30 sit-ups intermixed.... Get good and sweaty.

Grab the bass drum, and carry it up and...

Re: Beginner needs some advice

The only potential conflict is that potential buyers will mind when the OP goes to sell the kit on CL.

Also note: Replacement of Imp hoops requires the additional purchase of hoop-claws, as the...

Re: Beginner needs some advice

My two comments about the Tama Imperialstar are:

1: Plastic hoops are functional, but.... plastic.
2: Had trouble getting the rack toms in their correct position.

Re: How do the pros practice for so long?

It honestly takes some inspiration, variety, the ability to find gratification in the practice.

Re: Noob question - What to look for buying a used kit.

When looking at any used kit, make sure you're double-certain that all of the hardware is there. A used kit purchase often results in a three month epic-ark in pursuit of a matching claw for the BD.
