Re: Are 13" toms obsolete?

10, 12, 14, 16 gives me a better, more even spread. Personally, I love a well-tuned 10" tom, and have never come across a 13" that agrees with my ears. I always find them difficult to tune, too, for...

Re: Relationship between members of the band

In my previous band, we had our own sound system plus a lot of travel expenses, so we kept a "general" fund, and all of our money (from both gigs and merchandise) went there. We then each took an...

Re: What do you think about Casey Cooper (COOP3RDRUMM3R)

Re not changing people's minds: I had seen several of your videos before coming across this thread, and I shared a lot of the negative initial impressions that a lot people here have. Some regarding...

Re: defying conventional drum set up for unique sound

This was not on the drum set, but it came to mind. When recording once I used an old Casio SK-1 to record a stupid-sounding percussive/explosion noise with my mouth, and then built a loop with it on...

Re: Can house angle affect drumming?

This is good advice. My shop where I set up my drums has a slight tilt to it. I didn't know this when I first started practicing out there, and was getting lower back pain (which I'd never had...

Re: Breaking Sticks on Ride a little too often

Ha. Close: http://sabian.com/en/cymbal/221bc-21-inch-aa-bash-ride

"Wack Ride" wouldn't have been any sillier of a name, but it is a great, versatile ride meant to take a wackin' and a bashin'.

Re: Has drumming helped you in real life? If yes, how?

All of my closest friends are musicians whom I do or have played/traveled with. I met my wife through the band I was in in my twenties. I have been a paid, working musician since I was 16 years old....

Re: is anyone ever satisfied with their playing?

I think a certain level of dissatisfaction is what keeps all artists (whether they be musicians, painters, writers, filmmakers, what have you) going to some extent. I'm proud of the work I've done...

Re: Playing live, with a click

Amen and amen. We started occasionally using backing tracks at my church this year, and to me that is the only live situation where a click makes sense. We use Aviom monitors, and there have been...

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

For one thing, it's impossible to keep cymbals clean. All my cymbals now are natural/regular finish and don't show dirt as much, but the brilliant ones I've owned were covered in fingerprints and...

Re: Where Do You Fit? - Poll

I'm a solid 2. In my twenties, I wanted to be a 1, but now with a family, 2 is a much more appealing place to be. My hope is to stay there until I get too old to do it anymore.

Re: Drum Bags/Cases or No Drum Bags/Cases?

Buy bags and protect your investment. If you're going to be gigging that means you're making money with your kit. Why risk letting your gear get damaged? You can get a set of good bags at an...

Re: Why switch from Drum to Guitar??

As others have said, I don't see the point in completely ditching one instrument for the other, unless you are completely inept at drums (like I am with a piano), or just don't like it.

When I...

Re: My first paying gig! Pictures and me talking about it :D

Congrats on the first gig.

Re the old lady: 99% of my gigs over the years have been in churches, and while I learned a lot about volume control early on, there's always at least one person who has...
