Re: Anyone ever use the Porters and Davies stuff?

To be fair, I got my personal demo in 2013 at a venue near Denver, and I know that some improvements have been made since. I also like the saddle throne, which wasn't available at the time. :)

Re: In case anyone hasn't seen this yet... Bermuda and Dom

Re: Gear you could afford but never owned

I have a bit of a twist on this: gear I could afford, but waited a long time to buy.

The Canopus Zelkova snare falls into that category.

I'd always been impressed with them, but rarely...

Re: In case anyone hasn't seen this yet... Bermuda and Dom

This was a fun interview for me, I've known Dom for many years and it's the first time we've really had an in-depth chat. That's kind of how the interview felt at the time, more like a conversation...

Re: Playing different UNRELATED tempo's simultaneously?

Correct, but interdependence does. The brain can easily handle how the limbs work with each other, more so than it can how they work independently from each other. In that respect, it would be...

Re: Ludwig Neusonic

This new line really sounds great. The kits at NAMM had the Taiwanese Remo heads, and still sounded great! I regret not grabbing a kit at the show, but there's always next January. :)

Re: Ludwig Neusonic

Their maple is North American. I recall that even on the Asian-made Centennial kits, they also used N American maple.

Re: Musician vs Artist

I don't mind the term, although to me, in a musical context, it suggests one who actually creates the art. It's also a handy term for a solo headlining performer, such as Ed Sheeran or Joe Bona......

Re: Ludwig P88ac Question

The throw is great, a clear improvement over the previous updated model where the lever was too short, and the knob locked so well, the tension couldn't be adjusted while engaged. They fixed both...

Re: Ludwig P88ac Question

The original plan was to tap both sets of holes on the new butt, which was a smart idea. I don't know why they later decided to not do that.

I'd also recommend tapping it yourself.

Re: Are We Just Being Silly?

I've always considered drumming to be only a part of my life. When someone says 'I live to drum' or 'drumming is my life', I feel sorry that drumming seems so all-consuming for them, as if they have...

Re: Our dance band was hired as background music

The important thing is, pulling off what you were hired to do, whatever that may be. If the band is hired for its artistic merits, be the best artist you can. If hired to make people dance, play...

Re: Shine Drums

The web site is still up, hard to tell when it was last updated. Somebody's trying to keep the dream alive... or else they paid for hosting several years in advance!

Worse yet, they still have a...

Re: Bars and Churches where else...

Isn't all playing live playing? :)

You can find people to jam with, and find local organized jams to meet other players. Play as if those are gigs in front of audiences, and you're all set!...

Then the page froze.

Re: NEED HELP WITH SET LIST

There are bunch of catchy, enjoyable, fairly easy-to-play hits from the '90s, lots of one/two-hit-wonder kind of stuff. "Good" by Better Than Ezra immediately came to mind. Pearl Jam, Stone Temple...

Re: Happy Birthday Dom

Dom is a sweetheart, and quite a good drummer! I've known him for some time, at least as far back as I go with Sabian (1993.)

Dom interviewed me for the Sessions videos, and I just approved the...

Re: Drum fills

It varies. Sometimes the music dictates and guides my fill style, and sometimes specific fills are always used in specific places (tied to a guitar lick, or horn punches, for example.) Sometimes I...

Re: Fair price new Ludwig Legacy Maple 4 pc 2 up 1 dn?

I would agree that used (in this case) is a better value.

The Legacy maple is modeled after the "clear maple" era Ludwigs, c1969-75. But with just about any used drum, you have to inspect and...

Re: How do you switch from matched grip to cross stick?

Easy for me: I play matched grip and my snare hand with the butt end. It's always ready to go!

Re: Playing with passion or power. (Poll)

Some passion, some power. Mostly I play with economy and authority.
