Re: Drum store being sued

Re: Tigerwood - Grrrrrrrrr :)

All the different angle shots I couldn't tell the size-but the first shot you can see the 14 and 13X7 difference once I paid closer attention. Is the Tigerwood a hardwood like oak in it's influence...

Re: Flams, Double Strokes and Swiss Army Triplets

Love "sticking" the Swiss army triplets between the doubles and flams. Nice exercise to combine rudiments-I'm adding it to my practice. Should take me forever to become adept at it. Thanks.

Re: complete beginner; problem with bass drum technique

I broke my ankles and now with arthritis they are stiff and inflexible so I play heel up.
I usually set the tension spring low so the pedal can spring around. Here's a video of me goofing around...

Re: I think I might have been practicing wrong for a long time..

Well a good teacher always seems the correct default answer, but if you'd rather go it alone then I suggest play along to music-all kinds of music such as that you like and even that you dislike too...

Re: Poll: do you double bass?

Mostly 3 and I take it off and put it in the corner out of frustration, but then get inspired to try again and jump on the 5 train-course I get frustrated and then take the A-train back to 3. If I...

Re: The constantly changing drum room

Re: A month and no drums

I love playing every day-very therapeutic. But when I do take a hiatus I feel rejuvenated, feel like I play with ease and better, and feel more creative. Unfortunately other than vacation and being...

Re: More Creative on a Smaller Kit

It's the Drumming Bell curve. Every drummer starts with a smaller kit and few cymbals and then build or buy new larger kits with more cymbals and junk (bigger has got to be better), and then finally...

Re: 24" ride with 20" kick drummers.

I have an old 24in Zildjian and play with a 16 in kick. The kick cuts through nicely. If you have your toms tuned high this will blend well too.

Re: What's the oldest drum gear you own?

I forgot we use to have a band snare of my fathers from the 1930's he played when he was a kid. It was up in the attic of their house. I'll have to climb up there and see if I can find it. My Mom's...

Re: Cause of Meter Speeding Up Discovered.

Sometimes your timing is off acoustically. I use to play in a church and behind the kit and close I was right on time, but if you would step into the back it was like milliseconds behind. Recording...

Re: What's the oldest drum gear you own?

My eldest brother has my first Red sparkle 1965 Ludwig I got when I was ten years old. He recently gave me the Zildjian Avedis 24 in cymbal that went with it. I cleaned it up the cymbal and it looks...

Re: I need a bigger car for a bigger kick drum

My wife has a Honda fit that she bought because she could put her bike in the back. . I can't believe how much space there is in such a tiny car when you let down the back seats.
