Re: Beginning begginer.....what now?

With a low volume kit you're already way ahead of the game in terms of being able to play in the house.
My contribution is to put a pair of headphones on, play the music you like and want to be able...

Re: Band drama

Just James beat me to it.
Polite option 1, itís no longer what you ďsigned up forĒ so thanks but you think itís best to leave now so they can find the right drummer rather than leave them in the...

Re: guitars too loud, why?!!

Dipping my toe in as I’m not a guitarist and no expert, but don’t most guitarists have a boost pedal that they step on for leads then turn off for rhythm? I know that when we soundcheck the “A” song...

Re: What's happened to cheap WMP kits?

Iíd never lusted after a WMP kit especially, but a couple of years back I bought a Catalina Club in that finish. Iíd wanted the White Chocolate finish but a WMP one came up at a sale price so I...

Re: Band drama

I love Live BPM and Iíd consider setting it up on an iPad or tablet for everyone to see. I also believe itís everyones responsibility to keep time, not just the drummerís. The only potential pitfall...

Re: guitars too loud, why?!!

Funnily enough I was going to mention that. I was at the Jethro Tull Newcastle gig the Thursday before last and I couldn’t see any backline at all, possibly because I was close to the stage so...

Re: Another kit share story

Andy made an excellent point earlier up the thread. He, and I and probably most others, have sympathy for people who have had gear stolen, some form of incident or unusual breakage. However on the...

Re: how to record a rehearsal on a budget?

A couple of years ago I bought an ďaction camĒ (that looks incredibly like a GoPro but isnít) for about £30 from Chinese website GearBest. Itís given remarkably good results both in rehearsals and...

Re: guitars too loud, why?!!

ĎTwas ever thus, even some of the experienced guitarists I play with sometimes fall for this, admittedly at gigs as opposed to rehearsal rooms. I donít know whether itís ignorance, ego, frustration,...

Re: My new Mapex Armory kit

That’s a lovely finish, I thought I’d never seen it before either which with it being new explains it. The black chromed snare goes well with it too, enjoy.

Re: Re-buying drum gear, biggest bang for smallest buck?

Iíve just done a bit of digging and it appears that the early Saturn Pro line sat below the all Maple Mapex Orion line and were a maple/basswood mix. In 2002 they changed to the now more recognised...

Re: Noob first snare paralysis

Well said.
Itís a first snare drum and weíre talking about Indes, Oriollos and Yamaha Recording Customs. Iíve never owned an Acrolite or Supraphonic, as a UK citizen they arenít particulate...

Re: Re-buying drum gear, biggest bang for smallest buck?

I don't think a late 80s Mapex will be the Walnut shelled one, in fact iirc the early Saturn's weren't at all high end. If it's late 80s, looks nice and is a couple of hundred quid then do it,...

Re: Noob first snare paralysis

I've heard that the best way to do that is to turn the snare wires off, no snare buzz for "camouflage" every stroke you play can be heard while you're practicing.

Re: Re-buying drum gear, biggest bang for smallest buck?

Iíve only just realised that your in the UK.
Have a look at www.drumshop.co.uk. They donít have much at the moment on their website that match what youíre after but they often do a Sale Club where...

Re: Re-buying drum gear, biggest bang for smallest buck?

A kit in 10", 12", 14" floor tom and 20" bass drum would cover your bases in my opinion. I wouldn't stress too much about needing a specific type or size of kit for different musical genres unless...

About time too.
And because that's under 20 characters I'm pressed into hinting about the mini rant I wasn't going to have about the length of time it takes for true entertainment legends (Sir Bruce...

Re: Lubed Bearing Edge

I've never done it but I'd heard that running a bar of beeswax around the bearing edge has an effect. And to me beeswax sounds like the kind of thing that you could use on wood without qualms.

Re: Differences in Mapex Saturns

The main difference is that the bass drums are 14Ē deep for the 20Ē Drum, and 16Ē deep for the 22Ē. Mapex kits tend to go with deep to extra deep bass drums so this difference isnít to be sniffed at...

Re: CTS- Thomas Lang

Worth noting that the link and story are six years old, just in case anybody reads this and thinks heís had to have more surgery or that itís come out of the blue.

Re: "Stand-up for Drummers" on Netflix anyone?

I saw it and bailed out after 18 minutes when he started doing the American accents. I gave it the benefit of the doubt with it being drum related and wished I hadnít, awful.

Re: Does this sound like a lack of professionalism?

The problem here though is also the ambiguity of the language.ĒTonight a rehearsal was calledĒ, does that mean that on the morning (or the afternoon) a rehearsal was arranged for that night? If so...
