Re: What's your latest purchase?

Not sure how it happened as I've been using a 14" share predominantly for a while and been looking at getting another 14" brass snare too, but I've somehow just come home with a 12" X 6" Yamaha...

Re: Albums that had a huge impact on your current playing?

Go West by Go West. Many of the Tom runs by Tony Beard, would end with a slow double on the bass drum before a crash cymbal. He also would crash a beat behind where youíd expect someone to crash....

Re: The Choice to Play the Drumset

Following the example of fellow members I think itís easier to freestyle it than have to fit answers into preconceived options.
At around the age of 14, me and my mates decided that we were going to...

Re: Creative/minimalist kick drum muffling ideas?

Re tuning, I've used an Emad and unported front head for years now on various sized bass drums and gotten a lovely round full sound out of all of them unmicd. However the moment a drum mic comes into...

Re: A cautionary tale: The band that apparently never was

Slightly off the topic but similiar enough I hope.
In my neck of the woods an annual festival started up a few years back at which several less well known but not completely forgotten bands from a...

Re: Creative/minimalist kick drum muffling ideas?

Evans EMad on the batter side, my (or in your case preferably your) rolled up hoodie placed against the resonant head. Quickly and easily adjustable to increase or decrease the damping, has allowed...

Re: Counting off the song w/banter

I think we need to recognise that neither option is always right.
In my Classic Rock band we have the bare minimum of between song speaking, partly because our singer is very shy. Thereíll be a...

Re: Counting off the song w/banter

Banter can be great and it can be terrible, you have to get the balance right.
Talk about it together, it’s probably not the case (then again it might be) but maybe he thinks he’s doing the right...

Re: Mapex Armory's

Re: DRUM DAMPENING

We've only recently started putting my bass drum and snare drum through our PA. We don't have a bass bin but the two powered tops we have deliver enough oomph that the bass drum certainly gets felt...

Re: Dunnett acrylic kit really worth $4000?

Is that a kick patch on the pictured bottom head of the bass drum?
If so itís either ridiculously low or ridiculously high up the batter head.

Re: Almost lost my cymbals

I know that black nylon can take the scuffs and scrapes and dirty floors associated with moving gear to and from gigs, but surely given that a lot of moving and packing is done in dark environments...

Re: Music from A Star Is Born

Going off the topic here, fooled by the hype my wife went to see it on Monday night with a friend. Stupidly I hadn’t checked the “Parents Guide” on IMDB, if I had I would have recommended she stayed...

Re: How do you know when to crash?

Donít crash.
Iíve cut right back on crashing after seeing too much of the same old same old. Crashing at the end of a fill often comes across (to me) as a lazy option or a way of masking the gap...

Re: How does your band get gigs?

I think a huge element to the answer is where youíre based and what happens on the local scene.
In the North East Of England Iíve found that hitting the phones either to speak in person or to...

Re: What is the cleverest instruction given to you by a music director?

As a pub band player we donít have a musical director.
However the most useful, as opposed to cleverest, instructions a band member gives me or I give to my fellow band members are ďthe magic snareĒ...

Re: New Drums from Mapex

Since I started playing drums various companies have sold (& drummers have bought) the ďbenefitsĒ of isolating mounting systems, undrilled bass drums etc etc. Try...

Re: The Art of Drumming - TV Show

In the first week they also followed it with an excellent documentary ďMy View: Clem BurkeĒ which is pretty self explanatory, thatíll probably be available on demand too.

Re: Drummerís Place In Band

I think itís less to do with being a drummer and more to do with your overall contribution along with the other members of the band youíre in.
If youíre not contributing an awful lot then itís not...

Re: Is made in the US really that much better?

I once had to steel my nerves and say the same thing on here, it does strike me as being a bit racist or xenophobic.
I completely get people being brand loyal and having attachments that make no...

Re: Need help with memorizing songs and cymbal crashes
