Drums balance for recording.

I'm just about to start testing the recording of my acoustic kit for the first time, and I wondered if there was a good starting position for recording a kit? I remember that many years ago when...

The Drummer Gene?

Here's a thought... Is there perhaps a drummer gene?

I got to thinking that we all know some people are more able to hold a beat, and and that their (our) timing and ability to keep to a grove is...

Re: Tom angles!!!!

Just loving this config... must be so easy to play. No wonder they're getting rid of the kit.

Re: How long from complete beginner to gigging?

Took me about a year from first picking up the sticks to playing with a band. I too was mid forties, but had been playing music from an early age (piano, guitar, bass). I practice most days for...

Re: Songs that are recognizable just by the beat

There are lots of them that use a regular beat after an intro (as Bermuda pointed out), but here's a few more that I think are truly recognizable from the beat... I don't think these have been...

That Ludwig kit looks great.
I've got the Roland optional shiny dark blue wrap on my Roland TD20 kit. :)

Re: Acoustic vs. Electronic

I'd agree with the fact that you don't get the same feel, but I also think it's close enough. I've been exclusively using an e-kit for the last eight months for both practice and gigging, and...

Re: Bad reviews?

I played in a band once that within a pretty good review overall in a local paper was the phrase "...not so much a wall of sound than an avalanche of noise." Made us laugh at the time.

Re: If your drums could talk, what would they say?

"Bloody hell, 4/4 again! Don't you know any other time sigs?"

"Stop fiddling with my brain!"

Re: Ebay crimes against innocent drums...

Only advantage I've found in this situation is occasionally they not only don't have a clue about setting them up, but also don't have a clue how much they're worth either. I saw what looked like a...

How did Keith Moon play?

Sorry if that seems like a dumb question, but I'm intrigued by Keith Moon's style of drumming. Someone remarked recently when I was playing particularly 'over the top' that I played like him... But I...

Re: Dave Lombardo kicked off Slayers Aus Tour and ripped off by band mates/management?

Re: What were you doing at half your age?

Your actually spot on Bermuda, that was exactly half my current life. I was also at university, a mature student of 24. I bet you were amazed by that pure raw talent in my recording eh?

Re: Suggestions For Recording Drums With A Tascam DP-008
