Re: Versatility of a 24" Bass Drum

Whoa...Karl...never thought I'd see the day. You? A 22" bass drum? Pshaw! GRETSCH!? Who ARE you?

On your advice I switched up to a 24x18" kick and I love it. The deeper kick does indeed feel much...

Re: Chad vs Will

It was a total riot...well done. Will's trash talk was just awesome! It was pretty obvious from the start that it wasn't Will playing, but it was fully-entertaining, anyhow. Who was actually...

Re: Gretsch Renown

I don't know...I've heard the exact same story about how Renowns are essentially US Keller shells, cut, edged, and sealed in the US...then shipped to Taiwan for finish & assembly, in more than a few...

Re: Snare is not cutting through!

I would:

- Hit harder
- Tell them to turn down, if hitting harder doesn't help
- Do what others have suggested, tune the snare reso up, and the batter lower than the reso
- Don't over-tighten...

Re: Guitarists not wanted

Good keys are hard to find in Boise...but probably the next best thing to a guitar hero. What about a small horn section...add a few more in w/ the trombonist? I love the Stanton Moore vids where...

Re: what drum should i buy for adult

Hi there, welcome! Where are you from?

No. You'd be a better drummer, faster, if you took lessons...but you don't need a teacher to start enjoying and learning how to play. You could get a...

Re: Drummers that overplay

Nice! This is essentially what I was trying to say earlier. Why put drummers in a box and assign a standard method of playing, assigning a category for "overplayers" who just do too...

Re: Crush drums

I'm not seeing any indication of that, either. Bummer...I'll have to check into a special order or think about some Vistalites, maybe. I've played nice 16x14" toms but I can tell the difference. I...

Re: Crush drums

I like what I'm hearing! I need an inexpensive kit to beat up at shows and Crush is more than reasonable, especially for the quality I'm hearing about.

Love the ideas on the bearing edges. Gonna...

Re: Drummers that overplay

I have some anxiety about this, because I've worked very hard over the past 6 years and am getting to the point where I *can* play a lot of things that come to mind. When I couldn't pull off licks,...

Re: Diggin' this clean looking Ludwig kit

Me too. Will it pull the shell out-of-round over time? I might wait a year or two before thinking about it, and check to see if anyone here has noticed any funny business.

Re: How important is your grip?

I like what you added...well put! We really are all different and I don't think we can entirely instruct others how to hold drum sticks. I obsessed over it too much at first. Then I went to a...

Re: Practicing s-l-o-w-w-w

Because drums are just so damn fun to sit down and shred all over! At least, that's how I felt when I finally bought my first set. I wasn't concerned with anything else, yet.

Practicing slow was...

Re: I had to have it!

Same here...in fact I don't like DW lugs in any other finish.

Way cool! I bet they'll sound wonderful for ya.

Re: How important is your grip?

LOL! I was told to keep my hands at 10 and 2, while driving, but I've found that one hand works just as well. We're all different.

Re: The Long ply vs Stave debate

I had a really beautiful Unix stave kit at one point - solid, bookmatched bubinga. I wish I had known what I really wanted before ordering it so prematurely, because I just wasn't into the sound...

Re: 26" Cool Factor

I'm really noticing this, especially when I pull out the 22". I can't get happy with the sound and the dynamic range is pretty limited, in comparison. The feel is way different though, and it took...

Re: 26" Cool Factor

Sweet kit, Bo! Wow, I've been away for a while. Last time I was around, you were playing a little Sonor bop kit or something like that.

I've been on a 24x16" for 2 yrs. now and found it a bit of...

Re: So how many different snares do you use on a gig?

Usually just one - 14x6.5" Black Beauty. When I played funk and soul covers for 4 hrs. straight, I'd bring my Classic Maple snare along, too.
