Re: 5x15 Supralite

Congrats on your SL.
I bought a 14 x 6.5 a couple of years ago and love it. Its my go-to snare for medium to larger/outside gigs.
As an LM400 on steroids- good comparison.
I installed a coated...

Re: What is your drum setup pet peeve?

Ride cymbals set so low and flat it would be impossible to crash them without banging into or pushing over the floor tom.
I don't like rides set up too high either, but for me it has to be set...

Re: Sonor Players Kit from Sam Ash

Amazon says it's selling the Player Kit thru Russo Music, with 4 left.
Sam Ash had an exclusive but that expired either late last year or early this year. I bought mine used in mint condition off...

Re: stick keeps sliding in traditional grip

You might consider trying to use some Zildjian Drumstick Wax. This is cheap and a tin lasts forever.
This isn't a cure nor a crutch to solving the slippery stick issue, as technique and practice...

Re: Poll: Buddy Rich

Buddy with match grip-tympani style, circa 1948. Snap and bounce technique at its best-- of course, with no lessons. Like watching Krupa's style at fast- forward speed.

Re: I must be an anachronism

A smidgeon. Exactly what I've noticed so far. I have a 20 x 14 Ludwig Club Date bass drum and a Sonor Player Kit 20 x 12. A bit more low end on the CD and a bit punchier on the PK. I recently...

Re: Stevie Wonder - Superstition

Here's the Isolated Drum track from YouTube.
You can even hear his bass drum pedal squeaking.

Quite a groove- simple but swinging and funky!! Bass drum beat varies from straight 4 to funky feel....

Re: Sonor Select Force Jungle vs. PDP Concept Maple experience

I've heard great things about these tension rods from a drum-techy guy I know.

Re: Stoopid drum deal of the day: Sonor Jungle

Re the hardware on your Jungle kit- it looks just like the hardware that came with my Sonor Safari and Sonor Players Kit. They might all share the same specs for tom mounts, floor toms, bass drum...

Re: My personal list of rock and roll's top cowbell moments

LOL! The strangest I've seen. How low can you go? Here's a Wikipedia quote re his child's throne seating: "He had a powerful, distinctive style – he sat very low behind his kit (often side-on at...

Re: Why the "hate" for nylon tips??

I also use nylon for longevity and don't sense a noticeable difference in the sounds created for rock/pop that I play. I do notice the heightened stick definition on the ride and hats with nylon. I...

Re: Stoopid drum deal of the day: Sonor Jungle

Does look like a killer deal- I've seen these Sonor Jungle sets and always wished I had one- a highly upgraded Safari so it must sound incredible.

Re: Smaller thinner kicks with good sound- ideas?

I recently bought a slightly used Sonor Players kit for around $350 and the 20 x 12 bass drum had tremendous punch and bass without micing. It cut through sharper than my Ludwig Club Date 14 x 20...

Re: Went to Memphis Drum Shop (again)...

+1
Ben does a great job on the MyCymbals demos. Sometimes I wish he would crash a bit more without adding the bass drum so I could hear the crash by itself several times.

Re: Is Ringo a good drummer?

I've often wondered, who were the drumming influence Ringo learned from?
I don't recall reading that much info on the subject.

Re: Sonor Players Kit from Sam Ash

I picked up a virtually brand new set for $350 last week, got it home and immediately changed the snare, toms' heads.
The bass drum had a PS3 on the batter and a Holz cut-out on the res.
The kit...

Re: Ludwig Club Date NOT discontinued

I have a Cavern Club SE in blue oyster pearl-20, 12, 14, and it is a wonderful sounding kit, very round for sure. My snare was a bit fussy in getting the snares to resonate properly, but I've got it...

Re: Sonor Players Kit from Sam Ash

Thanks, Larry.
Looks like great recommendations all around.
What type of branded heads for all drums did you replace the Sonor-Chinese heads with?
I'm thinking something with a bit attack to...

Re: This is a great interview with Jeff Pocaro

Jeff's my hero.
Whenever I'm concerned about keeping a groove going for a tune, I'll refer back to some of his solid work to refresh my mind/muscle memories, reminding simple & steady is GREAT.

Re: Hi Hat Foot Beats on 2 & 4

Larry:
Since you play a lot of blues-based music, would you favor 2&4 on the hats for that, or would you utilize them on other beats?
Some music seems better suited to only 2 &4, but perhaps that's...
