Re: Custom Kit Advice - Mixing Wood

Andy (KIS) is right, and they make more than stave shells. Ply shells are just much less likely to be massively affected by wood species and layout than solid instruments; the resultant sound is...

Re: Rhythm Magazine/Music Radar review - Guru In-Tense english ash snares.

Haha, I'm already excited! I've been saving up a li'l bit for a new snare, and I'm guessing whatever it is from you guys is going to be incredible as usual.

Re: Drummers who don't use cymbal stoppers

Haha, so, the Yamaha nylon sleeves (available aftermarket) have threads on the inside so they'll stay on the post without anything on top (which normal unthreaded sleeves obviously won't do). Other...

Re: Drummers who don't use cymbal stoppers

Yamaha's nylon cymbal sleeves have threads inside. Mine untighten themselves while I'm playing, but y'know. I imagine one could quite easily use those T-tops or Coady posts on top of sleeves to keep...

Re: WTF!

Exactly. As dumb as it sounds, potato salad is more interesting and unique than most of the projects on Kickstarter to a lot of people. There's also, of course, the novelty factor.

Re: WTF!

They want a potato salad party. For every project like that, there are tons of well-meaning and actually useful projects out there.

I did say it was "cheap exposure" to post on Benny's page, and...

Re: WTF!

It's a modified Indiegogo page created as a joke (not hacked). I don't see how it's giving drummers a "bad name" to post obvious satire, and it's not exactly making direct fun of Benny's project....

Next time this happens I'm going to make a bingo board of bad discussion points. "Inapt comparison to multi-stringed instruments", "Mention of 'overcompensation'", "Casual sexism", "Any attempt to...

Re: More Creative on a Smaller Kit

They'd play differently.

(FWIW Mangini did do half-ish of his latest DVD on a four-piece. Bozzio's style doesn't exactly translate well to a typical kit.)



But what Zildjian's's should I...

Re: Drummers who don't use cymbal stoppers

I try to use as little on the top as possible, not for sound reasons (that's more affected by the tightness of the felt than its presence) but just for simplicity. I hit hard a lot of the time so I...

Re: Bearing edge recommendations

Yuuuuuuuup.

Side note: I should probably have somebody counter cut my full-round batter edge sometime... it's a real pain in my upkeep routine.

Re: Benny Greb's DVD about Groove

Yup.

Bo, it's also a matter of making sure there's demand for the thing. Obviously if someone needs a tenth of a million dollars to make a dvd, they want to know they'll get that much in profit...

Re: Snare drum throw-off problems..??

That's what I was going to suggest as much more likely. If your resonant head is too loose, you might overtighten the strainer to choke it off & compensate, which of course makes it hard to get...

Re: Stripping - drums & fills.

I agree with Watso! It sounds great and so do you. I'm playing my 10+15" tom combo recently and I adore the discrepancy between the two. It's nice to have some options when I get tired of the 12+15"...

Ah, yes, let me go practice for another four years to remove a feeling I actually like with my playing. Wink?

Well, then!

Re: What do you think of GetSticks.de?

I would definitely interested were it in the US! I haven't gotten a bad stick ever from Vater and I like to try weird models so I'm buying models online usually anyways.

He's matching the tone of the original post. I would think most med-to-high level players can manage to make the music feel good regardless of setup, despite that ...weird? quote.

Re: Open handed technique

It does feel different, though. That's a critical element that I think dovetails well with a more 'composed' or mechanical approach to playing- I still play jazz (and enjoy occasional jamming) with a...

I actually took a lesson with Jay once. He's a great guy, not as technically minded as one might think. You'd expect them to have good group timing since the instrumentalists have been playing...

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

Somehow I think you mean 3/4, 5/4, and 7/4.

Regarding the topic, yet another useful exercise might be to run 8ths on the hi-hat and play an 8th or 16th grid on the bass drum, like this:...
