Re: Jazz and Matched Grip

I'm going to move ahead with Matched. I'm not concerned about what people think, I was just wondering if traditional would eventually give me more control as I get better but sounds like the answer...

Re: Whiplash Oscar win - will it spur sudden interest in "jazz drumming"?

I think the types of people that will feel a sudden urge to take up drumming after watching a movie are the same types that won't see it through. As WhoIsTony? pointed out, it may result in a flood...

Re: Jazz and Matched Grip

True. I just meant that rotating the left wrist into a french grip position might be the key to getting more delicate and precise notes when playing matched.

Re: Jazz and Matched Grip

Thanks Tony. Going to check them out. I'm much more in control and capable in matched but I feel like my comping ghost notes will be increasingly harder to master and pull off cleanly in matched. ...

Jazz and Matched Grip

Is anyone aware of any well known jazz drummers who use matched grip?

The reason I ask, is that as I continue my foray into Jazz drumming (with slow progress) I have come to a point where I'm...

Re: When playing one up and one down...

If you mean in the left or right rack position, I put it on the left so I can get my ride cymbal where the right rack usually goes. That's the main reason/advantage of doing it IMO.

Re: Looking for a single mic to record covers at home

Here's my sample recording with my Zoom Q2HD. With some tweaking of settings and positioning it about where you did in your pic, this is what I get. Not half bad in my opinion but I'm no recording...

Re: Many cymbals yes, but many snares?

I have two. A wood and a metal snare. For now I feel pretty set with that but that could change. I could probably get everything out of those two snares I'd ever need, sound-wise.

Re: Playing Kick and hi hat pedals together

I'm sure you'll get plenty of advice here but two fundamental things to start with would be slowing things WAY down and practicing your sitting balance. Make sure you are centered on the throne,...

Re: Drumeo - any opinions?

I watch some of their free stuff on Youtube. It is helpful. I would consider paying money for Drumeo or Mike Johnston or some other reputable drum instructors online but I simply don't have the...

Re: 12db Ear Protection?

I just picked up some of these myself. After fiddling with them for a while I think I found the best fit/seal. My question is similar to the OPs. Is 12db reduction enough? These almost sound too...

Re: Looking for a single mic to record covers at home

Does anyone use Zoom recorders for this? I have a Q2HD and I've found with the proper settings, and the audio quality maxed, this thing actually doesn't sound half bad. I've been meaning to record...

Re: Jazz Snare Tuning

I was researching this exact topic last night. As Tony said, it appears there is not a consensus on this. It varies as much as rock snare tuning.

Re: My $100 drum set

Very nice. The PDP FSs aren't top notch but they are very good. A good intermediate kit for sure and for that price, definitely worth it.

Re: favorite groove with triplet fills?

Anything that isn't in a triplet feel.... I like the dichotomous (word?) sound of going from a straight 4/4 groove into a triplet fill. Just sounds cool.

Re: What kind of Premier Kit is this?

I think you're right. I didn't see a price anywhere on that website though.

Edit: Looks like they are about $300 new for a 5-piece, so ya, this price seems about right.

Re: What kind of Premier Kit is this?

That's what I'm thinking. I don't understand why people don't put better pics up when trying to sell stuff. I'm a bit short on the $175 right now so I may have to wait a bit.

Part of me...

What kind of Premier Kit is this?

I am looking to get a second kit for practice purposes and/or to leave at the house of the guitarist I've been jamming with. Possibly to gig with down the road.

I know nothing about Premier...
