Re: Peter Erskine moves to Tama...

To me, this just confirms that once you take Into account player, sticks, heads there's very little difference in sound between the main brands. What differences there are, are more perceived by the...

Re: do i need a hi hat mic?

Usually a decent set of overheads covers the hats. There are exceptions but in general I find the more numerous the mics are the your sound is in the hands of the engineer. This can be a really good...

Re: Funnest Gig you've ever played?

Funniest gig I ever played at was in a tiny record store, we had to fit a full size fender rhodes, massive bass rig and a 3 piece kit down one isle. The store owner kept going on about how he liked...

Re: Are E-kits only good for practicing at home?

In most live situations there is no advantage to using an E kit and trying to make sound like an A kit. However, there is a huge creative advantage to having an E kit that generates non-traditional...

Re: Kinda miss those 80's kits!!

No never again, the 80s monster kit, what a massive waste of time, 5 to toms lots of noise saying nothing at all. Set up and tear down time was so long and at least two band members needed vans or...

Re: Another "first audition" thread

I would not worry about playing the same or similar beats a couple of times, it is way more important to nail the basic feel so that the singer and guitarists can really finese their. parts. In other...

Re: i just want one kit :/

The majority of drummers only own one kit. There are a number of reasons to own more than one kit. For example, having separate shared event (B grade) versus single band kits (A grade) not to...

Re: Practice to Mastery?

Leaving complete mastery aside, I find that in order for a new beat or rhythm to work I need to be able to play it backwards forwards and have 4 or 5 variants that sound good at different tempos so...

Re: Heavy music, where did the ride go?

I am not at all up to speed with all the subdivisions of heavy metal music. If you can't hear something like a 21 or 22 UFIP Bionic Ride through the music (which has a fabulous bell sound) then you...

Re: The "Jimi Hendrix of drums"

If we take popularity as one benchmark then no. Nobody has heard of Tony Williams outside of drummers who are into drummers and some jazz players. Everyone has heard of Hendrix becuase he played in...

Re: Another *&^%$# Bar Owner

I agree with what has gone before, if you want to maximise your profits then simply book a venue out yourselves and then you get all the benefits. However, the downside is you better draw a large...

Re: The "Jimi Hendrix of drums"

Outside of jazz very few people have even heard of Tony Williams where as they may have heard of John Bonham so from a popularity standpoint JB is much more like Hendrix. A household name, I will...

Re: Nuggets of hard won wisdom

Three simple thoughts for you,

1) When you sound check the whole kit, actually play with the same intensity you will play at during the gig.

2) When recording play at about 70% your live...

Or you could use a paint-strip gel and remove the black paint. I did much the same to heavily scratched up ultra cast and it now looks great. Strip the hardware off, and take your time also make sure...

Re: So you're going to a band audition...


You have to decide whether the band is right for you just as much as the other way around. The main thing I look for are tensions in the existing line-up, it's very common for rock bands...

Re: Ludwig Supraphonic -50th year edition

Nope, I appear to be the only person on this forum who thinks Ludwig Supras are pants. Played many and never found them convincing, particularly the shallower size. As Vidal Gore once said art isn't...

Re: Good ear plugs(or other sound attenuation methods) for liver performance...?

Elacin ER 15 are fantastic, these are molded in the shape of your ear which makes them VERY comfortable. I have used these for more than 10 years giging with pretty loud bands. Other than my sticks...

Re: Die-cast or not die-cast hoop? Snare advice.

There are plenty of a/b comparisons of hoop types on snares on YouTube.
I rather like die-cast on the top of some of my thicker shelled metal snares, the cast hoop just controls the ring and still...

It is essential for every club drummer to get along with the venue based sound engineer. They can have more control on your drumsound than drum make/sizes/heads/wood type etc. I would cut a hole and...
