Re: How sentimental are you about your drums?

Very!!! I bought my current set right after my mother died. Prior to I had saved to buy everything, always with a keen eye toward other bills. After she passed I had a f##k this moment, and in an act...

Re: Kick Drum physics experts in the house?

Check the reso port. The frequencies that come off a port can be out of proportion to the drum head. One other thing, you mentioned a number of ways that you internally dampened the drum, all of...

Re: The Speed Obsession

This exactly the point. Environment can explain why one twin is 5'6" and one is 5'8. There is no way to make either of them 5'0" or conversely, 6'0". Variances up and down within a generation or from...

Re: The Speed Obsession

Yes and they are good articles, but they refer to ontogenetic growth spurts. Specifically, the comparatively long growth of humans in relation to other primates and our ability to effect the overall...

Re: The Speed Obsession

Look at the evolutionary chain. From monkeys to proto humans to man the line gets taller (diet I guess?) and we are as a whole still getting taller, but according to you that's not evolution anymore....

Re: The Speed Obsession

Okay. I'll leave it with this, then you can say "unh uh" one more time, and we can stop this. Do you believe that jockeys or flyweight boxers can get taller by eating a better diet? Do you think...

Re: The Speed Obsession

I said that they are able to breed more successfully. Whether more often or more children or whether taller people live to breeding age more often I don't know, but it's one of those things. My guess...

Re: The Speed Obsession

We are getting taller because taller people are breeding more successfully, either more often or more offspring are surviving, or more tall people survive to breeding age. People don't get...

Re: 13" vs 14" snare

I have a 15" floor tom and can attest that it is significantly louder and deeper than a 14". The same way that my 14" snare is both louder and deeper than my 13". Interesting that though it is not as...

Re: My New Drum Kit [w/ Pictures]

You've made a wise choice and gotten a drum set that will take you through all of your eventual skill levels. Get a good Hi-Hat next, and choose wisely again, it is a very important part of your...

Re: Snare Choice for Punk Gig

Are you talking about trying to make your drums sound like some recordings? Just use the best sounding gear you have, and then play punk on it. If you really want to sound like some old punk...

Re: Guitarist comment on drummers

It's simple, they are morons! More realistically though, they are just different, different personality types, if you take my meaning. It's cat people vs. dog people. When you talk about production...

Re: Bass Drum Volume / Running Through PA

No one ever mentions this. The material inside the drum doesn't need to muffle the heads. The frequencies inside the drum have different lengths. Low frequencies move in large waves, about one will...

Re: 13" vs 14" snare

I have the 3.5x13 Ludwig HH bronze. It records like a dream, but lacks the raw volume of a bigger snare. It tends to get swallowed up by the Marshalls.

Re: How long does your snare cord last?

Never, but I don't use string and I have changed my snare wires on all of my snares at least once. Now that you mention it, that plastic strip is really durable.

Re: Tinnitus (ear ringing)

+1. My understanding is that blood pressure and ringing in the ears go hand in hand. Alcohol thins the blood and in my case decreases the ringing in my ears. Years of drums and guns have my ears...

I'm a little concerned about this playing too softly. You and I have disagreed on occasion and I would describe you as something other than a shrinking violet. You have challenged my opinions and...

Re: How do I get this weird sound? Simon and Garfunkel's "The Boxer"

It's just soaked with reverb. This is why drummers should learn to run sound. All the guitar players you know use effects pedals to create their sound or to emulate the sounds they hear in...

Re: How not to drop sticks

Mental note: Don't drop a stick! Serious note, don't rub your face or head, or run your fingers through your hair. Keep a fresh towel behind the kit and wipe your hands off if they get sweaty and or...

Re: The Speed Obsession

Re: Songs that make you do a double-take when you sit to down to play them

I did a half Tool half Deftones project a couple years ago. Talk about a double take. When you start getting into Danny Carey's work each song gets more intricate than the last. I'm not as good as he...
