Re: I've got a big one ------ &

I'm looking forward to seeing where this goes. As it is, I'm a bit on the fence. Those high, discordant overtones you mention seem to rob some of the drum's presence, in my opinion. The basics are...

Re: Been documenting my snare drums more.

Love the playing and the sound of each of the drums. As Les, said, the format is really excellent, too. Thanks, man!

Re: Sloppy fills

This is what it takes to wake a lot of people up, I think. Myself, certainly. There is nothing like hearing yourself and thinking, "I sound like THAT?" to make you tighten things up.

Re: When to do Free Gigs and Paid Gigs

I could only see this working if you already knew you could bring people in. And if you already know that, why would you do it for free? Wouldn't you already have an established reputation to point...

Re: When to do Free Gigs and Paid Gigs

I'll pretty much never play for free unless it is a charity event that I support.

Re: Bonham amber vistalite purchase/questions

It's one of the newer PS3s with the black dot - the stripes around the perimeter are the giveaway. The regular black dot (CS) head has no stripe around it.

Re: Bonham amber vistalite purchase/questions

True, but he wasn't using a PS3 batter head, either, and that's what this kit has. The underlay on the PS3 should provide as much focus as the felt, IME with 24" kicks.

Re: Bonham amber vistalite purchase/questions

I'm not sure how you're tuned up now, but basically tune the batter head high enough to get a good tone (it will be higher than you think it should be), then tune the reso up quite a bit higher than...

Re: Snare Drum Comparison, Observations

Totally agree.

One thing about overtones and and sustain in a snare drum, though. Sometimes it takes experience to make them work in your favor. A drum that rings out tends to have a wider range...

Re: Snare Drum Comparison, Observations

Interesting that your snares ended up tuned about the same, too. I was amazed at how alike they all were in some ways, yet the slight differences really shone through when they were played side by...

Re: Why do the wooden hoops on this snare have flat straight sections?

There is one flat on the top hoop for throwoff clearance. There are two on the bottom hoop to provide a little extra knee room.

They aren't miscut, they are opposite the snare gates on purpose,...

Re: Snare Drum Comparison, Observations

I understand what you are saying in theory, but my experience with new drummers is that they cannot STAND overtones. Most have only heard recorded, processed drums and the sound of a real drum is...

Snare Drum Comparison, Observations

I just had the chance to do a side by side comparison of all 4 snare drums in my modest collection. I rarely have them all in one place at one time, but they all happened to be here and I was...

Re: How to make my vintage ludwig sound better

Octoplus was a huge kit with 8 concert toms (no bottom heads) so it doesn't sound like the kit you have is an Octoplus, FYI.

That aside, I'm with Opentune - vintage Ludwig kits tend to sound a bit...

Re: For you Ludwig fans!

Those are great-looking kits. I suspected something horrible when Bo said it was "quite a pretty finish," but I really like it!

Re: Another guy asking for help with a decision....

You can always use mesh heads and triggers with an acoustic kit. Then you have the option to do either. That's a pretty good deal on that kit.
