Re: Drummer Mess Ups

If I learned anything from both those videos, it's that people don't really seem to care if you mess up. They still scream like crazy.

Re: About To Order a Metronome

I had a Korg Beatlab and after awhile the adjustment sliders lost their sensitivity. Even with the volume all the way up it was hard to hear

Need help from a Mapex Saturn owner

Does the tom mount on the bass drum slide on the rails? I can't get both toms on the rack where I want them, and before I go out and buy a tom mount for my cymbal stands. I would really like to...

Re: Need help with Beats for Band.

If these members joined your band, then play what you always do and make them adapt. Sharing can happen later, but if your band already has songs worked out then the new guys should learn those.

Re: Neighborhood drumming too loud?

I've been playing at my house for 8 years and I've had no complaints ever, which is surprising. I like to think it is because where I live is so mundane and boring that it might be a breath of fresh...

Re: Other Drummer Syndrome

Yeah, its happened.

First time it happened I was trying out for a well established touring band with a CD and extremely talented guys. So I pretty much had to be the "other drummer." The reason...

Re: pushing the beat forward

Are they literally talking about pushing it time wise, or feel wise? I know a lot of power-pop or pop-punk bands usually ask for a steady bass drum through the whole song. I'm not sure how their...

Re: Your favorite brush song/player

Agreed. And, I think, that will lead to under practice. Even though it seems drum playing is expanding, brushwork might become a lost art.

Re: Everyone tells me NOT to buy a kit with a 24" bass drum! (24"BD owners, please comment!)

As far as a 24" BD goes, I love mine. I have a 24-13-16-18 and it sounds great. The 18" was tricky to tune for me just because I needed to find a good point where it sounded good and cut through. ...

Re: Drumming Tattoo?

I say if it's that important to you you should get it. And don't be afraid to get creative with your idea. Check out artist's portfolios and find one who's style you like. Any good artist should...

Whats your own favorite drum sound?

Well maybe I shouldn't say "drum" but what piece of equipment(mixed with you're playing of course) on your kit makes the best sound to you. No matter what you're playing, every time you hear the...

Re: Why does this drummer sit so far back?

RIP Vitek

Positioning of most drum equipment usually comes down to comfort. If you're just starting out you'll probably be changing it around a lot too as the years go bye.

Re: I sacrificed creativity for technical ability

To clarify a few things I would practice by myself in the day and usually have band practice in the evening. And Jeff I didn't mean for "technical ability" to mean I had super chops and I used so...

I sacrificed creativity for technical ability

Re: I'm in a pickle. Please help me decide!! I can't do it on my own!

I agree with everyone else, I would just save up any extra money over time. It's taken me about 3.5 years to get a new kit, cymbals, and some nice hardware. Like they said drums will always be...

Re: Good tom sound for heavy metal?

I'd say Evans EC2's or Remo Pinstripes. I have the EC2's and for me they were real easy to get a nice sound out of. I tuned my resonants around medium tension, and for the batters i tightened them...

Re: Rock Band as Beginner Independence Training

I agree and say it's fun as a game and I believe will help with maybe a sense of rhythm, but other than that, I can't see it helping with drums. I've played it and I wouldn't say I'm good at it...

Re: Playing with family

I play with my dad on occasion if one of my friends leaves their guitar equipment here. He only really knows how to play the drums, so he usually hops on mine, while I take to the guitar.

Most of my cymbals are Zildjian, and I bought them first; 2 crashes, ride, and hats, but lately I've been starting to mix it up. I wasn't brand loyal, it was just that before GC and other music...

Re: the perfect setup

That's how I like mine too. I'm playing a 4 piece now, but when I get a 5 piece I'm going to set up just like that. Happy drumming to you and your new set-up lol.
