Re: Starclassic maple or DW collectors

A little overstated, but relevant. DW Collectors hold their value better. I've watched two Starclassic maple kits sell for $600 here in Tucson in the past year and both were really excellent kits. I...

Re: Starclassic maple or DW collectors

Just do the right thing and buy the DW. Thirty seconds after you buy the Tama it will be worth half what you pay for it. Two years from now it will be worth $500. As far as sound quality I like both...

Re: I took a hearing test...

I've heard this about Page. In fact he just did the remix/remaster of Zeps entire catalog. I'm no good behind the board, well that's a bit harsh, I'll never be a professional producer, let's put it...

Re: Told to hit harder

This goes back to my "every musician needs to learn how to run sound"! After the drums are mic'ed up the next thing a sound guy does is get a gain signal. If the snare mic is ten feet in the air, the...

Re: I took a hearing test...

A friend studying Audiology at UA asked me to participate in a sample group for part of her finals. Having tinnitus already I was very interested. I have what she called a "standard 8K dip" which is...

Re: Is Ringo a good drummer?

Still trying to figure if you're joking. Ringo was the best drummer and I'll go one further the reason the Beatles got famous. None of you old farts bought a single Beatles record until Ringo joined...

Re: My drum tuning

Tune big drums high and small drums low! You wanna try to get every drum to sound the same.

Re: Is Ringo a good drummer?

The other Beatles thought he was good, better than their other drummer, and he's one of the wealthiest musicians of all time. I think we've had this conversation already.

Re: Hating your playing, sometimes or always.

It happens. You push the envelope of your playing, then you master it, then after awhile it bores you. Two bits of advice for you. One is to realize that your being overly critical of yourself (not a...

Re: The worst gig of my life

Exactly. Things happen and then what do you do? How do you respond? My last rider provided me with everything I asked for, more actually. DW Collectors, all 9000 hardware and pedals, it was like...

Re: 14/16/18 bass drum (depth size)

Punchy is one of those ambiguous words that drummers use. Amorphous words that are open to interpretation. A shallower shell should sustain less, but shell mass also plays a part in sustain/decay....

Re: What experience do you have making your own drum kits?

I've built four drums from Keller shells. I'll give you a little rundown of my bass drum build. First you need to chose a dealer to order from. The prices for different services vary a lot, but the...

Re: The sound guy

I never have a bad time with sound guys. I can tell you first hand that knowing how everything works is a pain in the ass. Every time the singer doesn't have a signal or the guitarist can't hear his...

Re: The order of things....

Snare then hats. Those are not the worst hats that you have now. Kick, snare , hi-hat is the majority of what your going to play, so make improvements on those three things first. Snare first then...

Re: Sonor vs. DW

Custom made for the same price as production? On this planet? Another thing, GMS=Keller shells, Spaun=Keller shells, and Pork Pie=Keller shells with a couple of exceptions. Some Spaun shells are...

Re: "Recording Heavy Drums" tutorial by Glenn Fricker

Re: Are you familiar with Jammin Sam's drum wraps?

Oh yeah, the topic. Precision Drum has all the same Delmar wraps as Jammin Sam. They recommend the same glue method as most drum companies use and have step by step instructions. There are a couple...

Re: Are you familiar with Jammin Sam's drum wraps?

The build is pretty easy. Order an 18" Keller shell with edges from one of the many authorized dealers. Measure one of your CX shells for edge to center and center to center lug pattern. Measure the...

Re: How Does Your Band Set Up on Stage?

Re: Neil Peart

Re: Ever have a drums finish sway you away from purchasing it?

I watched a video on how to remove the chevrons. Underneath is just a lacquer finish which is much classier (imo). I saw one for sale that was new with hardware, seat and DW5000 pedal for $650, but...

Re: 1st Joint as opposed to 2nd Joint grip

Turn your grip over. Palms down, back of the hands toward the ceiling. Control will move toward the tip of your index finger.
