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

Playing = Playing what you know
Practicing = Learning what you don't know.

Reignite the furnace and get to work.

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.

Re: hmmmm need some help.

It is brand new. I initially had issues with most of the tension rods (including the bottoms). It has largely subsided over time and only the two lugs where my rimshots land detune quickly. I've...

Re: Drum Wrapping Info

Side note:
In the guitar world, the pick guard would be called 'Pearl Flake'. When used as an inlay, the expression 'Mother of Pearl' is used. Low quality imitations are affectionately called...

Re: bass drum depth

In the 80's/90's, a few things happened.

1: CD's became available, allowing for greater dynamic range than Vinyl and Cassette.
2: Consumer audio devices became more capable in terms of power,...

Re: A new drummer

If you're just beginning.

1: Invest part of your practice time into stick control. There's a book called "Stick Control" that's great but pretty dry. If you're looking for web freebies, use...

Re: hmmmm need some help.

It's the voice of god. I need to get lug-locks or tight lugs or something for the tension rods where the rim shots land, as I seriously have to tune it after every 2 hours of play due to slippage.

Re: Best Maple Drumkit around $1000

TBH, all of the semipro imports are really nice. Even the intermediate kits ($650-$1000 new) are nice. Don't het hung up on maple. Hit Pearl, Tama, DW, Yamaha, everyone and everyone. Play all the...

Re: First Intermediate Kit

You'll find consensus on a few areas if you look through similar threads.

1: Intermediate cymbals really don't seem to exist. There are good cymbals, and there's trash. There's really not a lot...

Re: Practice Pads

Yes, unless you're near a snare stand (real or improvised). Then it goes on the stand.

There are a number of practice pads with various features, and while I have trouble recommending one over the other, here is some wisdom I have picked up after my mistakes.

Re: Ludwig Snare (not supraphonic, not an Acrolite)?

Don't feel bad. They only came with Imperial-looking lugs for a short time. Look at the ebay listing (http://www.ebay.com/itm/Ludwig-Rocker-Snare-14-Black-and-White-Badge-/131099359980) for the...

Re: Gretsch Renown - thinking about buying

I wholly agree that the renowns are a no-frills pro kit. I also agree that other offerings can sound just as good.

I've noticed that Renowns have the same cult-esque following that Supras do. If...

Re: Gretsch Renown - thinking about buying

I've never seen new/clearance for $700. Someone linked some new/clearance renowns on Amazon for $800 a while ago, but they dried up pretty quick. They're posted when they show up. The 3-piece...
