Re: Feel loses energy during fills?

Try recording something that is planned. When just playing what comes to mind, the decision making can cause some issues. See if you feel the same way on something you rehearse to play the same way...

Re: The matching snare

mis matched was only refering to a snare that did not come with the kit, not an editorial on whether it should be used or something. That is how I took it anyway. Seems this hit a hot button for you...

Re: The matching snare

The market tells us drummers want choices of snares and cymbals. Just because you don't agree with the concept of a mis matched snare does not make everyone else wrong. Maybe I am missing something...

Re: Negative Progress / Quitting

Introduce some strong practice into your playing. Improving rudiments help you to do what you are thinking. If you can take lessons. I also suggest playing with some people looking to play for fun....

Re: The matching snare

Not sure where that last line came from.

The snare is something that adds to the signature sound of a given recording drummer. As a drummer in a cover band I wish I could afford several snares...

Re: A new drummer

I used this site when I was getting back into drumming.


Can be boring working on rudiments but it is necessary. I still do some rudiment work every week.

Re: The matching snare

I have a matching snare right now. But as soon as possible I won't. Need my Ludwig Supra back! I prefer non-matching.

Re: What drummers have marched?

I marched in D&B Corp for two years. It was a good experience for proper form. Although I have probably lost much of that form!

Re: Mapex Pro M vs Mapex Saturn

At one point not too long ago I was expecting to need a practice kit. My thought was to get a smaller kit that I could use in case of a very small venue.

Re: Ludwig Score?

Supra for $100! send me those ads! I get your point though they are usually a fair bit higher. Acro for that? Yes but then usually not in the best shape.
