Re: Cleaning Black Beauty snare shell?

Cleaning Black Beauty snare shell?

I have been searching Google and this forum for days, and I can't seem to locate an answer. I recently purchased a Ludwig Black Beauty snare (large Monroe badge, 5x14, tube lugs, P85) used, and the...

Re: The stick to brush switch

FWIW - Have you seen this video by Zack Albetta? Great brushes video, and he recounts a technique he saw Jeff Hamilton use to switch between brushes and sticks. See around 12:00-15:00.

Re: Rockband Drums: good practice?

Santa brought Rockband to our house this year. It surely has helped to increase my kids' (6- and 9-year olds) interest in drums and singing. Before Rockband, my son only had interest in playing one...

Re: Neil Peart

I hear where you are coming from. Setting the term "jazz" aside, one thing that I'm not sure about is how the term "groove" is being used here. However, if the term can be applied to any Rush tune at...

Re: Do you prefer wood or steel snares?

I like maple as my main snare with aluminum as my auxillary snare. Maple matches the rest of my drum kit better soundwise, especially when the snares are off.

Re: "Gretsch Drums are a drag."

FWIW - The Cindy Blackman album that Billy is referring to is awesome IMHO. The comments by Billy should not scare people away from getting her album. Very good album to introduce people who don't...

Re: It's depressing

Congrats! The Nitron Glass wrap is stunning looking.

Although I don't have a New Classic snare, I have a Gretsch New Classic 3-pc config. Awesome drums. Last set I'll ever buy (famous last words)...

Re: It's depressing

Trip,

Well your mileage may vary, but for me my appetite for expanding my snare collection decreased significantly after getting those wires on. That said, when I tried those same wires to replace...

Re: It's depressing

I have an Acrolite too (late 70s vintage). FWIW - I replaced the wires with 20-strand Puresound Customs, and I swear it sounded like a $500 upgrade to me.

Re: Hi-hat (foot and other) technique?

larryace,

Thanks for the perspectives. I have had a similar experience so far with respect to the tilt. It doesn't affect things that much for me.

As for felts, haven't quite figured on the...

Hi-hat (foot and other) technique?

I am trying to better master use of the hi-hats with respect to different dynamics of foot splashes (e.g., hitting with heel first), foot chicks, sizzling, getting the hi-hats to slosh around (a la...

Re: Neil Peart

Sorry if this has been posted before, but what is the deal with these DW ads Neil has going on? The shocker for me was not so much the one about his new custom-sized, mega bass drum, but the VLT...

Re: 6 year old left handed student. Teach him lefty or righty?

I am lefty. I have a 6-year old son who is righty. When I see him mimicking me on the drums, I see his natural right handedness showing through. He's recently gotten more discouraged by drums with my...

Re: Vinnie Colauita

Agree it's great music with or without Vinnie. We don't get enough of this in the States either. I think I'll have to move to the Pacific Rim. :)

Maybe people have already seen this from awhile back, but his work on Seven Days with Sting is awesome.
