Re: Amplified Bass drum sound problem.

The first thing I thought was that lying the mic in the drum is putting it in a node, and/or introducing a proximity effect. I was called upon to record a band once, and was surprised to find an...

Re: Need Help w/ Screw on Floor Tom

If you can get off the other lug screws, and you can get off the opposite head, remove all the screws that work right, unscrew the misbehaving lug from the shell, remove the hoop with the "bad" lug...

Re: Anyone suggest good drum bags?

I have the Kaces HD series. I don't know if they are available any more, but they are fantastic. Good hardware, they fit suspension mounts well, and they feature a heavy, semi rigid padding that...

Re: Snare for a $200 budget

All good suggestions, I have a '70s Supraphonic and a Musashi that each were under $200 by a good margin, maybe just at with new heads.

Steel snares offer great bang-for buck (pun intended). The...

Re: Drum Dial tuning

These are all fair points. I have one, rarely use it, but still consider it money well spent.

It is also a good training tool for the new drummer. I found I would get myself into trouble tuning by...

Re: Reality check!

I keep saying this. Buy drums for the hardware and finish you prefer, if your main use is the stage.

A bar we used to play in NYC mandated the use of their house kit. It was a decrepit Export,...

Re: This ever happen? Plus a 5 minute beat

I don't know about that, but I can fall almost completely asleep doing rudiments. As in, I have to catch myself before I topple off the throne.

Re: Names of the drums and cymbals - origins? etymology

They were originally mounted on a rail on the bass drum, so the cymbal "rode" the drum.

Re: "Nobody cares about the drummer, except for the Rush guy."

98.72% of people won't notice if the guitarist stops playing.

68.149% of statistics cited on the Internet are made up on the spot.

Re: Why do people treat their drums so badly?

Some people consider their instruments tools, some consider them family members. If you're a kid with the kit he can afford in stead of the one he wants, hustling in and out of bad load-outs with no...

Re: need some info/help from the Tama guys

Probably. Most multiply drums sound pretty similar. Heads and tuning will make way more difference than the wood involved.

Yes, arguably. The SCs were all made in Japan, built just the same as...

Re: double bass - weak leg is better than strong side

I go through periods when my weak side is better. I think my left is uneducated, where my right side has learned all kinds of things, maybe the muscle memory interferes with what I'm trying to pick...

Re: How many of you guys mic your kits at home?

If you play live, the acoustic sound of your kit will be somewhat alien, could be a distraction. I guess you could bring your mics and a mixer to feed yourself the miked sound. If you want to hear...

Re: Buying a drum set and beginner help please.

Electric drums are good news/bad news, like everything else.

Good: Low volume. You will be able to play much more, without needing a rehearsal facility.
As mentioned, they sound good without any...

Re: Double Bass Questions

It's a great idea, I would have recommended it if you hadn't brought it up yourself. Find a problem, isolate it, drill it, then work in the other limbs.

Re: Double Bass Questions

Your drum is not part of the problem, 22" works for lots of people. Make sure the drum is tuned to a consistent tension all the way around, and that the beaters are equally off-center. Most double...

Re: Necessity of heel-up when doing single strokes?

I may be wrong, but the fastest guys I know of use heel strokes/constant release. As for playing ankle-only heel up, I'm guessing there's a more relaxed range of motion from neutral to down than from...

Re: Necessity of heel-up when doing single strokes?

I wouldn't say it's a necessity, there's a place for everything. As you say, heel-up provides more power, due to the greater moving mass of the upper leg, and I find having more power available makes...
