Re: THE GOOD SNARE THREAD

Thank you for putting that together. It's extremely well done with pretty equal tunings, levels, and playing.

The video leaves me wondering. I hear a distinct difference between all three...

Re: Gretsch Renown Maple 16" Floor

Welcome to Renown Hell!

Re: Keeping Time On The Hi-Hat With The Left Foot

Whenever I played a beat that had my right hand on the ride, my hat work would be sloppy, because I couldn't hear/fixate on it. In the beat I linked, the hat drives the beat. It cannot be the...

Re: Keeping Time On The Hi-Hat With The Left Foot

I had some trouble developing 8th notes as well. There were a couple things that accelerated my development on the left foot.

Re: Recurring dream - drum related

I had a dream that was afloat in the ocean sitting naked atop an inverted ride cymbal. I couldn't stand or move as my bum was plugging the hole at the bell, and I knew I'd sink if I unplugged it.

Re: Priced to High??

Agreed. He might be able to leverage them on a trade to get the most out of them. There's really no harm in keeping them listed for $1100. The shells are worth that, it's just that the...

Re: Pearl Masters Custom Maple

I have the same kit (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mErt8SbtvqU)as you and did the same thing. GC for a bit under $1000, pretty much even-stevens with tax/shipping. They are truly remarkable...

Re: Catalina Club Jazz vs. Catalina Maple

I tinkered with both when I was looking for a kit. They're really not bad, and well worth the $350-used price tag. If I were playing jazz, I'd go for the club. I also like that aspiring drummers...

Re: Musicians Say streaming Music will Leave them Broke.

There's really not much to say about the article. It's an age-old dilemma. Unless you're one of a select-few pop-culture phenomenons, you do not make royalties from broadcast or album sales. When...

Re: Drummer Metronome

I second the metronome app. I use the free version of MetroTimer. BRD's app is probably much nicer. I'm sorry about the Windows Phone thing. The MS software ecosystem is horrible. I would highly...

Re: First time buyer advice

Alternatively:

Call a professional drummer friend.
Bring him with you.
After he has inspected the kit, buy him a 6-pack or a nice bag of.... fruit.

Re: First time buyer advice

When buying used, I typically find the new price and divide by 2. Arithmetically, the Pearl looks like it's the best deal. You're going to have to take a look and make certain it's all in order. ...

Re: Negative Progress / Quitting

Practicing = Learning what you don't know.

Re: Best Maple Drumkit around $1000

My drum instructor's first words after playing my Renown.. "Seriously?!?!"

That said, the Signet sounded really good to me, and I wish I could have afforded them.
