Re: How to place air vents on my 3 ply African Mahogany Shells

Get the Evans Genera head single ply.

Try it.
If it sounds too dampened to you, then carefully cut off the dampening ring. Now you have a vented drum head.

Try one head only on the reso...

Re: How to place air vents on my 3 ply African Mahogany Shells

I would try some Evans Genera HD drum heads. They are designed to reduce overtones.
They have tiny holes in the drum head. This might give you a similar effect to venting the drum shell.

Re: Drumsticks for stick control

With a 5A stick you learn to strike heavy (loud) and light (soft) because you have a broader range to work with.
With a 7A...

Re: Drumsticks for stick control

I'm not understanding how larger heavier sticks give you more control.
What kind of control?

What about hand size?
What if you have smaller hands?
What if you have larger hands?

Re: Nuggets of hard won wisdom

While you are on stage in front of an audience; donít try out any new complex rhythm patters that you just thought of on the fly, especially if you have never played them before.

Re: Phantom Drums

Neat !

This makes me wonder.
If I could watch my drumming in slow motion, would it reveal any good or bad playing technique issues? Could it help me improve?

Re: Snare wood stain colour

Re: Let's Talk Snare Drums

Yes, I own my Dad's drums. One, is a 1926 Ludwig Super. Last year I installed a p-86 on it.
I also have his 1968 Supraphonic.

I think I am spoiled as far as snare sound goes. I'm sure I...

Re: So you're going to a band audition...

I used to interview people who were trying to get hired.
Usually the person being interviewed will either talk themselves out of the job or really impress you.

Re: So you're going to a band audition...

For me I would need lemon pie. Or maybe doughnuts and orange juice.

Oh, and a little bit of time to talk to the guys and gals in the group.

Re: Let's Talk Snare Drums

My first thought is; Will there be a test on this later?

Thank you for the information.
Well, this settles it for me. The only important thing is, do I like the sound of the drum or not. And do...

Re: Let's Talk Snare Drums

OK I get it.

If they called it a "Black Beauty with Supraphonic hardware" that would sound kind of shoddy.

And if they called it "Supraphonic with an NOB shell" that would sound kind of...

Re: Making a kit

I can think of two reasons for doing it.
1. You could get the look you want.
2. It would be fun.


I can think of three reasons why not to do it.
1. It is somewhat expensive. It would...

They had some interesting stuff there.

I need one of these drums behind my set when I'm on stage.

Re: Musical Instrument Museum - Drums of the World

They probably have one of those nose flutes. They have thousands of instruments.

But if they don't have one, maybe you could be a hero and donate one from your collection.
