Re: Silly branding things that shouldn't matter (but do!)

Even bespoke drums tend to come with some badge or other, although I suppose you could order without. My Noonan badges are rather tasteful and I can't even think what the badges of my Yamaha MCAN...

Re: Drumming in the pre digital age.

I don't really think the pre-digital age / drum forum has changed my actual drumming at all. But I agree it's good to hear others opinions and ideas. The drum magazines had it there way for too long...

Re: How tense are you when you play?

At a gig I aim to be relaxed but mentally alert. If there are tricky parts I think my way through them whilst on-route to the gig. I cannot execute grooves smoothly if I am too tense, also I can...

Re: Singers and percussion

I agree with many of the comments below, most singers have a fairly poor sense of time. On the other hand a dedicated trained percussionist can really add atmosphere and feel. However, a singer with...

Re: Unreliable band members

I think this depends on the size of PA rig and gig and how regular these are. Open tune you are right the PA is NOT my job, my preference is that the band hire a third party whom are experts or use...

Re: Unreliable band members

If the band you are in is going to last then everyone needs to have similar level of dedication. Most band have a few members that put in more effort than others but.... the differences can't be...

Re: Drum fads: Past, present...and future?

Louis, Not too sure about being lined with something special, from what I can recall it was just some thick white paint, but this was my first kit, wish I had kept it, seriously glam gold wrap and a...

Re: Drum fads: Past, present...and future?

Interior paint, as you all well know Gretsch has been doing this for years so even though it may not make much difference to the sound it doesn't qualify as a fad.
In fact it's a rather long...

Re: New product idea again

Larry, what you need are a pair of modified platform boots or a tasty ladies wedge heel. Just match the pedal board angle with the wooden wedge of the boot and your up and running. An unholy mix of...

Re: How can I make a shallow snare sound deeper

Although I agree that drums sound best within there comfort zone. I think some proportions are more suited to this than others. For example, shallow drums will never sound deep, however it is...

Re: 1 up, 2 down - opinion on FT sizes

Another good option is 15 and 16 floors with different depths. I use to use an ancient yellow Premier kit at a rehersal place which had kick 22, Tom 13, FT 15, FT 16. And this was my favourite set-up...

Re: Drum fads: Past, present...and future?

Also have to agree with previou (super Phil) post in that Dave Abrussezze (can't spell name)of Pearl Jam (a grunge band of 90s) really had some tasty musical chops and sounded tight in the studio and...

Re: Drum fads: Past, present...and future?

Horrible fads,

1) stand mounted floor toms: what a massive pain to position.
2) kick port: no discernible improvement on my kicks, in fact it limits resonance.
3) unusually shallow or deep toms...

Re: Show us your 3 piece kits!

Sorry, I didn't mean to imply I am Steve Jansen, I am not. What. Meant is that when I was a young drummer this album really influenced my playing and that this had lots of tom lines. I don't mind a...

Re: Show us your 3 piece kits!

I agree with Keep it Simple that small kits really move the focus to the kick, however, I still think a 4 piece gives the best of both worlds. I also think that a three piece really focuses sound...

Re: Are All Snare Drums Created Equal?

Hollywood Jim you are right I think most non drumming musicians just don't hear the detail in a snare drum sound. However, I suppose the argument is that some can. Or it's possible I am delusional...

Re: Are All Snare Drums Created Equal?

I did a blind test snare check with my band, simply took two snares to our weekly rehersal for a couple of weeks. Recorded the same track with a little digital recorder. Then sent the recordings...

Re: How do you hear it all?

Hmm well, I am not kidding when I say that in my monitor mix all I want is vocals, bass and keyboards, plus a bit of kick drum mic. In my experience it's the guitars that cause all the hearing...

Re: Dry heads for ludwig blackrolite acrolite snare?

To a large extent you are fighting the drums natural sonic characteristics by fitting it with dry heads. Aluminium drums are by nature ringy but the overtones are not as harsh as drums made with a...

Re: Where is the "best kit" thread :)

You are correct this is a stupid question, the best response I can give is that the best kit is the one you are playing right now.

Despite what every drum maker will tell you there is no sonic...
