Re: Rhythm Magazine/Music Radar review - Guru In-Tense english ash snares.

that's a good review. Congratulations!
I've found often with their reviews, they spend more time on if the drums are in tune out of the shipping box than actual qualities of the drums in question.

Re: More Creative on a Smaller Kit

lol, this topic always goes the same way. The size of kit we individually like is reflected by two things as far as I can tell.

1. Musical style you play. If you are playing metal, you probably...

Re: More Creative on a Smaller Kit

and what's up with using two drumsticks. You have to be more creative if you just use one.

Re: Re-training My foot? My pedal? Both?

as another drummer, who used to play a lot, and then took a 5 year retirement, it takes a while to get your body back to being able to play like you used to and it can be very frustrating. I've been...

Re: The side snare

cool. At first I though he was just using it to hold his set list. lol. I'm a big Collective Soul fan, so I enjoyed that.

Re: The side snare

I've never understood the whole idea either. Aside from "Where the streets have no name" by U2, I've never seen anyone use one.

Re: Stripping - drums & fills.

I think it really hinges on the era of music you are playing in choosing the right amount of "tomage". Right around the early 90's when Nirvana came out, everyone dropped down to minimal 4 piece...

Re: First time buyer advice

Nice kit. I think you did well on the deal. Shell packs are all well and good, but adding hardware and cymbals adds up fast if you start looking for decent stuff. You have something to play with, and...

Re: Bad Auditions

yeah, the only real difference was the bass player wasn't there for the audition, but he was there for the actual practice. I suspect it was him that didn't like me for whatever reason. I still talk...

Re: Bad Auditions

to the OP, yup, sounds totally like an average audition to me. You need a bit of a thick skin to go through the process. Don't take it personally, or you will come across like you have a bad...

Re: Pearl Free Floater (advice)

if it's an actual free floater shell, yes. Steel shells were the least expensive, then maple, then brass, then the specials - alum or copper, or anything else.

Hypothetically any 5" shell can just...

Re: Pearl Free Floater (advice)

yeah, a Pearl aluminum free floater shell might go for 150 on it's own. Aluminum, and I think there was a copper one too once upon a time are really hard to find. There was a Tico Torres signature...

Re: Report from the dark side ;)

yes, I find this very interesting. As a guy who plays in bar bands primarily, almost any discussions about mic'ing and tuning are in relation to studio recording, and there is very little about live...

Re: Leave Me Alone, rant 2

Re: Leave Me Alone, rant 2

Re: The old Pearl Exports??

Yeah, I had a set of Exports that I bought new in 86, and gigged them until a year and a half ago. Did some bigger shows with them too, recorded, the whole 9 yards.

Re: The matching snare

I have the matching snare to both my kits, but don't use them, but as many others here have brought up, it's about selling it with the kit later. Its a different thing when you have a bunch of snares...

Re: What's the better option: new or used drum kit?

you can get a pretty decent feel for the condition of the bearing edges just by running your finger around the outside on the drum head. If you feel any irregularities, then you could pull off the...

Re: Licking my wounds from sitting in tonight

I've found that now that I'm older, it takes longer to get warmed up and loose, so I've taken to warming up on my kit or pads at home, before I head out the door to the venue, or band practice. It's...

Re: Does anyone else hate splash cymbals?

I've owned a couple, and just can't get into them. I have it set up on my kit at home that doesn't move yet, but I can't see ever leaving the house with it.
I have a very similar experience with...

Re: Cause of Meter Speeding Up Discovered.

Interesting thread. I've actually discovered in my own playing, is that if I start listening too much to the rest of the band - waiting for a cue or a lick or some vocal hook, I start to subtly slow...
