Re: Gretsch Renown - thinking about buying

I hear you. Yeah, I think in this case semantics did get in the way. If "semi-pro" means not quite professional level, then "semi-intermediate" means not quite intermediate level, which is definitely...

Re: Gretsch Renown - thinking about buying

Totally agreed. As much as I love the Renowns, the USA Customs are insane! If I could justify spending that much on a kit, I'd do it in a heartbeat. Same goes for the Brooklyns. AMAZING sound. In...

Re: Gretsch Renown - thinking about buying

Semi-intermediate? What about the Renowns scream semi-intermediate to you? Yes, they're made in Taiwan, but they use the exact same shell design and hardware from the USA Customs, with the exception...

Re: Gretsch Renown - thinking about buying

If you know you love the sound of Marquees, then you'll definitely be happy with the Renowns. They use the exact same shells, the only differences being 2.3mm triple-flange hoops on the Marquees vs....

Re: Anyone ever try to poach your seat?

I was actually on the other end of that not too long ago. Last summer, a musician friend of mine wanted to know my availability for a new tribute band he was in. They had a drummer, but they weren't...

Re: Gretsch Renown - thinking about buying

I LOVE Renowns. I have two of them in fact, one permanently set up in my rehearsal room, and one for gigging. I can't get over how good they sound, especially for the price. If that $999 set is...

Re: Drum Wrapping Info

I see what you're saying. But when it comes to drum wraps, "pearl" is actually the color of the pick guard, not the guitar. In fact, in drum wraps, that pick guard would be considered "White Marine...

Re: Weight of a drum kit

What type of shell hardware on the drums? Something with die-cast hoops and lugs will weigh a LOT more than a kit with 1.6mm hoops and cheap stamped lugs. I think the shell hardware makes a much...

Re: Drum Wrapping Info

Don't know what you mean by a solid pearl with no pattern. Pearl wraps (i.e. white marine pearl) have a pattern to them.

Regardless, I just rewrapped a floor tom to match the rest of my gigging...

Re: The worst drum /cymbal purchase you ever made

Anyone here buy those Sabian "tri hats" from the early 2000s? Required a separate stand and everything. Or the DrumFrame from around the same time that leans your whole kit back like an oversized...

Re: Kickport on 16" BD

Never tried one on anything that small, but I do have a kickport on my 20" bass drum and love it. Considering the relatively small head area of a 16" kick, perhaps it makes sense to try their FX2...

Re: 1975 - guess the drummer :)

Vinnie? The 7/8 groove and open hi hat sound (reminiscent of Joe's Garage/Keep It Greasy) makes me think so.

Re: Laptop/backing cutting out live

Just out of curiosity, have you tried using a different media player such as QuickTime or iTunes? I'm a little biased against Microsoft, so somewhere deep inside me I feel it has something to do with...

Robotic Prosthesis Turns Drummer into a Three-Armed Cyborg

I just stumbled across this article, which I thought was very interesting. In short, Georgia Tech created an artificial limb that can be attached to amputees, which contains motors that power two...

Re: Less isn't always more?

On thing about "busy" drumming that hasn't been touched on yet is the volume of your playing. First, check out this video featuring Antonio Sanchez:

Re: Flying with a snare

I've flown with a snare before. You don't need to worry about loosening the heads, that is unless you want to whip it out during the flight and impress everyone with your really fat tone. (And by...

Re: New Member seeking advice Brooklyn or New Classic

Both kits are great, but I'll make this easy for you. Brooklyn, hands down. Don't even think twice about it.

Re: Drummer and Musician apps for Iphone or Android

I can't believe no one's mentioned Jammit, which lets you purchase 1000s of songs minus the drums (or minus guitar, bass, keyboards or vocals, whichever you prefer). The cool thing about this is...

Re: Proof other musicians don't care how drums sound.

In retrospect, I totally wish that I had done just that. It wasn't even a band I was auditioning for, just one guy. Should've gotten right out of there the second he told me not to use any of my gear.

Re: Proof other musicians don't care how drums sound.

About 12 years ago I auditioned for this guy who had me come over to his house and insisted that I play on his kit as-is, even though I brought my snare, cymbals and a pedal. The snare had to be the...

Re: Take the Drummerworld QUIZ!

Nice one. Now I wonder if there are more "twins" hidden somewhere in the Top 500. Anyone care to look?

And Henri, nice find on Bernhard. Where'd you dig that one up?

Re: Take the Drummerworld QUIZ!

Since this quiz seems to be wrapping up, the other drummer (that no one guessed) who appears twice in the Top 500 list is Jack DeJohnette. Thanks for playing :)
