Re: Freddie Gruber: Finding Out How a Drum Student Hears

Re: drum tuners

I've used the TuneBot for some time. In the beginning when I got it and after tuning batter and rezo the same Hz, something didn't sound right so I figured out a workflow to get things efficient and...

Re: What's your take on electronic drum sets?

I've played Simmons, Tama (techstars baby!), Yamaha, and Rolands since 1990. I can tell you the following:

1) There is no substitute for acoustic drums, but it's fine for practicing quitely.

Re: Old and new

Exactly! The bass player is also phenomenal. I believe he is the second percussionist in the band, very much like Rocco Prestia (although no one can be compared to Rocco!) is with Dave Garibaldi in...

Re: Old and new

Although I'm up there, I do like a lot of new music today. One young drummer, for whom I'm old enough to be his dad, impresses me the most out of the new breed of young drummers - his name is Jay...

Re: Gretsch Renown Maple tom sound - need help..

Thanks a lot guys, this makes perfect sense. I'll experiment with tunings and placement at home and at that dinky studio (drum room) that I have to go back to. Come to think of it, the ceilings and...

Gretsch Renown Maple tom sound - need help..

I have a Gretsch Renown maple and was recently at a recording studio this weekend. My 12" tom sits over my virgin kick drum by about 3 or 4", slight tilt. It's on a sturdy double tom stand using a 2...

Re: Worst song ever

You're right, and I know a lot of people who agree with you, including myself. However, sometimes I like other people playing their music. I won't say anything negative about them, it's just not my...

Re: Mapex or DW?

I've tried to like DW's, I've played different Collectors kits in many of the recording and rehearsal studios I've been to, even going as far as re-tuning them (TuneBot) to frequencies I like (or on...

I just recently got them mid-way though a show last Sat. night. The thing is, I rarely ever get them and I play just about every day. Then it occurred to me that the varnish on a brand new pair of...
