Re: How do you measure a snare for a snare bag?

Try looking at the Ahead range of bags. I have a set & the snare bag is a perfect fit. They are in a teardrop shape, which allows for the throw fitting in the bag.

Re: Anxiety before a gig

I used to get a bit anxious when I was in a covers band, which was probably because I knew that people would be comparing our versions to the originals. Now that I'm in a band that plays our own...

Re: Good Snares for Metal?

I picked up my (very lightly used) Chad Smith snare off ebay for 82, and I regularly see them on there go for less than 100.
The OP would do just grand with one of these.

Re: Questions about kick drum heads

TBH, if I was buying a graphic for my drum head I wouldn't want to have to do any trimming at all. You'd be better making it an inch smaller rather than an inch bigger.
As has already been said, you...

Re: When you're in charge, which songs ...

Just one for me.
The Best by Tina Turner. Quite possibly the most awful song ever simply because it causes drunk women to believe they can sing, when in fact all they can do is screech like a...

Re: The side snare

I use a Mapex MPX 10" steel snare for accents. It has the tom fitting that enables me to attach it to my crash stand, saving me having to use another snare stand.

Re: Black Panther Snare Recommendations?

Mapex BP Phat Bob, 14" X 7" of 12mm Maple.
That should do it.

Re: Bad Auditions

Your original post:

So they want to interview & hear more drummers? That's totally acceptable. I'd be more worried if they had heard only you & gave you the stool on the spot without hearing the...

Re: Anyone ever try to poach your seat?

The band should have invited him for an audition, then when he got there told them what they thought of his actions.

I had to get a new car in February as my other one died. I was paying cash & was offered a fabulous deal on a 5 year old Jaguar X-type, but it wouldn't have fitted my kit in. I ended up getting a...

Re: Maple or Birch for hard hitters ?

I think Maple kits are actually more expensive than Birch, e.g Mapex Meridian Maple costs more than the Birch. It seems to be the same with most manufacturers as far as I can see.

Re: Anyone wear Hats on stage? Ball Cap? Fedora? What?

As a follically challenged chap I wear a beanie when it's cold or, more often, a bandana when it's warm to stop the sweat getting in my eyes.
I usually have to change it a couple of times. I sweat...

Re: What was the name of your first bands?

The first band I was in was "The Objects" in 1978 & I was a (not very good) drummer. We had discovered Punk the year before & decided we wanted to play it...
