Re: double kick practice advice

Good idea... I'll add: I have a PC set up in my practice studio and I use a software drum machine that I use to program exercises and hard to learn patterns. It's awesome to be able to slow it...

Re: double kick practice advice

The guy is just using straight singles, no heel-toe or swivel technique or anything like that.


Honestly, for that kind of thing, I'd start using one of the many good snare drums books and start...

Re: Why is it the fashion to remove your low tom, and replace with a ride?

My current gig dictates my setup. I'm doing the huge drum sound thing, and my massive kick makes even one rack tom cumbersome.

If I were doing the more conventional things I used to (classic...

Re: Dontcha' just HATE those old T-rod thingies?

Hmm... this thread has me thinking.

I'm personally a fan of keyed rods on my bass drums. However, I can see a real benefit to switching to maple hoops with claws and T-rods on the reso side of my...

Re: Yikes... My snare sounds like crap now.

Re: Yikes... My snare sounds like crap now.

Again, I'll try to sum up all my responses to your responses in one message... :-P

Larryace: It's 6.5"x14".

Bobdadruma: When I said "timbale", perhaps I should've been more clear. It almost...

Re: Yikes... My snare sounds like crap now.

Rather than quoting everyone individually, I'll try to address every question/suggestion in one swoop...

Fuzrock: Do you think the bottom hoop would really be causing the issue? I'm asking out of...

Re: Yikes... My snare sounds like crap now.

Yikes... My snare sounds like crap now.

20yr vet here, but I never got really serious about tuning and my gear until recently.

Re: Steve Morrison - pro drum tech (Tommy Lee)

Anyone catch the Crue last night on Jimmy Kimmel? I saw it on Youtube today. Tommy's bass drum had to be 40" in diameter. Just sick.

Re: how to put some life back in an old snare drum

I'll throw in my $.02 here...
