Re: Progress on the vintage Yamahas

Really cool Bo. You made me look on Reverb for gold sparkle Stewarts, my first set. I won't buy them but you did pique my curiosity.

Links to recordings?

Re: Snare buZZZZZZ and recording

Art that's brilliant. I will definitely be trying that. Awesome thinking outside the box my man. If I can get this to work...oh man that's a major advancement in the snare buzz elimination...

Re: Deep bass drums

I have a 20 x 12 walnut bass drum. (I gave my Sonor Players kit to my stepson) It's certainly not a 22. But it is just perfect for certain gigs. I get a good tone tuned Motown high or low, but it's...

Re: Snare buZZZZZZ and recording

Good food for thought. I'm hopelessly addicted to 6.5" depth and above for my snares. I like the body it imparts. The crack has to be balanced out to my ear. The buzz is under control now,...

Re: Snare buZZZZZZ and recording

Oh yea, I did treat the space to the best of my abilities. My studio is a 12' x 20' rectangle with 6 ' 9" ceilings. The drums are on the far 12' wall from the entrance. All the cinderblock walls and...

Re: Snare buZZZZZZ and recording

No close mics on toms. Except the I5 on my snare, and maybe the bass drum is considered close miced. Oh and my hi hat. Here you go Pete, I have a pair of C - 414's aimed at a pair of toms each, (4...

Re: Snare buZZZZZZ and recording

I tried blankets, foam...anything I could think of to block the tom sound from setting off the snares. It helped very little.

Re: Snare buZZZZZZ and recording

Ok if you say so. Right now I'm going for the best raw sound I can get. I don't want to even think about gates yet. I don't feel I need them. I'm admittingly going for the most open, natural,...

Snare buZZZZZZ and recording

I think I hit on a semi fix for something that's been the bane of my existence ever since I started trying to record drums in my little low ceiling-ed basement studio. But first you have to endure a...

Deep bass drums

I used to be a big fan of 18" deep bass drums.

Now, they just look re-diculous to me. I'm still more than fine with the sound though.

I have a DW exotic kit with a 22 x 20 BD. That looks even...

Re: remembering a tune

On my song charts, I need to put down who starts the song. If I don't start it, I can name that song in 2 notes. So I don't need to memorize stuff that I don't start.

I REALLY like the suggestion...

Re: Turning Points?

You're right I clean forgot.

Jan 2nd 1983.

Right around Christmas 1982, I bought myself a Muddy Waters cassette tape produced by Johnny Winter. He also played on the album. The album is...

Re: remembering a tune

All this is simply memory retention, a skill easily learned. There's already methods in place I know you know this stuff. Use it! The title itself might use a line in the song that can help jog the...

Re: What is your Go To gigging Snare Drum ?

I have 3 I like to gig with, based on whatever mood I'm in. The band I'm playing with factors in there too. They are all 14 x7 drums... ash, walnut and padauk. I have a 14 x 6.5 segmented maple snare...

Re: How do you feel during your drum lessons?

I apologize if the following is totally off the mark.

If you can't do the lesson for your teacher but can do it alone, that is a reliable indicator that you are creating the blockages. It sounds...

Re: How do you feel during your drum lessons?

If you don't understand something, by all means, ask for clarification. If you're not getting it, and the teacher isn't picking up on that, don't go any further until you're clear. Admitting I...

Re: Shell Bank

I went that route too. I have 10,12,13,14,16,18 toms...20 and 22 bass drum. That gives me a bop kit and a "regular" sized kit, plus an 18" floor that stays home on my recording kit.

As long as you...

Re: Why are drummers/musicians/music-listeners so defensive online?

Guilty. Sometimes I'm in a down mood and negative comes out. Doesn't make it right. I blame it on the human part in me.

Re: What's your latest purchase?

I have to say, compared to maple, birch, basswood, beechwood, walnut has a distinctive tone all it's own. I love my walnut snare, it would be the one I would save from a burning house. I think. That...
