Re: Denting drumheads

Yup, loved the way the Vater Fusions and Fat Backs sounded on cymbals, but they dent the crap out of heads and Iím not a heavy player.

Re: Current drum trends you wish would go away

Re: Current drum trends you wish would go away

The Starphonic is well worth itís higher price point. Absolutely nothing wrong with the way it sounds.

Re: On drums...Stewart Copeland!

Re: Struggles of Short Drummer and 5-Piece with Offset Toms

Probably the tightest 2U offset setup Iíve seen recently. HH is definitely not pushed out like some. This setup has a 22Ē BD.

Re: Rimshots on die cast hoops

The Brooklyn 302 hoops are even higher and worked me over for a while! Those definitely take some getting used to. It was a very good exercise in technique awareness, that's for sure. A bit more...

Re: Rimshots on die cast hoops

Ha! Never say never as the saying goes. I've played around with the different hoops since this thread too, but I just dig the die cast hoops rim shots and side sticks. Don't do a ton of rim shots,...
