Re: something I am building

I meant snugging a nut up against the black thing to prevent the reso side rods from rotating at all. That would prevent the "lugs" from ending up at different heighths over time relative to each...

Re: something I am building

I think that's a pretty schnazzy single-tension design. I would tighten a nut up against the black things on all the reso bolts once you get them even length, maybe with a split washer too. Then all...

Re: Teeth Drumming

I used to do this all the time when I was very little, long before getting actual drums. It was almost some sort of nervous tick and I remember doing it a lot while trying to fall asleep. Eventually...

Re: Practice pad drum set suggestions

Do you want cymbal-like pads that articulate like an actual hihat, or just a realistic feeling pedal with a surface to hit? If the latter, you could probably drill a hole through a practice pad to...

Re: Drumming and writing music.

I find it very helpful to actually write out the music when writing music. My band and I all use TabIt, which I think is the best tablature software out there and if you were to actually pay for it I...

Re: Quick doubles on the kick

Learn a few Zeppelin or Maiden songs without doing heel-toe. Practice practice and remember to keep relaxed.

Re: Not denting heads

That premier head is just RUDE. Does that happen at trade shows often? What kind of animals do they let in to those places?



My band wears earplugs all the time. Even for shows. We are entirely...

Not denting heads

I play metal. Sometimes my band complains about having to turn up because I'm too loud. But I don't think that I'm a heavy hitter. I use 5As and after a certain point I don't think that hitting a...

Re: Cutting a giant hole in my bass drum's shell

So I took my kit from my "recording" room yesterday (small, pretty dry sound) to my band's practice space (bigger and untreated) and I got to hear what my kick really sounds like now. It's...

Re: Trimmed down kits

What is creativity? What makes a drummer good? What does kit size have to do with it?

I would argue that a bigger drumkit is more destructive, since having all those extra toms temps the player to...

Re: Snare Trouble

What heads are currently on the snare?

How does the drum sound with the snares turned off?

Have you tried putting the dampening ring from the other snare on this one? The "metal bucket" sound...

Re: Cutting a giant hole in my bass drum's shell

HOLE SAW ACQUIRED!

One of my dad's friends apparently had a nice harbor freight set, so he let us borrow the 5" for a couple days. I am very tempted to fire up the drill tomorrow. Unfortunately,...

Re: Cutting a giant hole in my bass drum's shell

Wow, thanks for all the replies already.

To larryace: the i.d. of the kickport is 4", and I dig the amount of rebound I get with that. Then again I think I remember someone saying that less air is...

Cutting a giant hole in my bass drum's shell

So I've seen bass drums that that already have a big ol' vent, but I have yet to see any information on someone doing it themselves to a perfectly good bass drum. I dig those Kumu drums, and I saw an...

Re: Marching snare on a full kit?

I had a nice Premier marching snare in my basement for a while that I was fixing up for my old drum teacher. It had a white Falams on it, cranked down about as tight as a piece of wood. That was fun...

Re: Is It Common For Some People Not To Take Care of Their Gear?

I'm not really in to shiny cymbals, but I'm not really into grimy ones, either. I wipe mine down a few times a year, and if it doesn't come off with a wet rag and some elbow grease, it stays on. On a...

Re: Drummers with killer calves and thighs

My calves, not so much. But flat feet + years of double bass = my doctor looking scared when he saw my tibialis anterior. Pretty disproportionate with my scrawny frame

Dream companies to endorse? I'd like to be sponsored by Exxon-Mobil, Subway, and Trick Drums.
