Well done man! very good quality, presentation and explanation. Learned something new today - it worked for me but with concentration of keeping my hi-hat doing 8th's.

Re: Old and new

Exactly! The bass player is also phenomenal. I believe he is the second percussionist in the band, very much like Rocco Prestia (although no one can be compared to Rocco!) is with Dave Garibaldi in...

Re: Old and new

Although I'm up there, I do like a lot of new music today. One young drummer, for whom I'm old enough to be his dad, impresses me the most out of the new breed of young drummers - his name is Jay...

Re: Gretsch Renown Maple tom sound - need help..

Thanks a lot guys, this makes perfect sense. I'll experiment with tunings and placement at home and at that dinky studio (drum room) that I have to go back to. Come to think of it, the ceilings and...

Re: The Speed Obsession

This thread was a real eye opener. Thanks to all who posted. I'll be looking at recording and playing live quite differently now.

Gretsch Renown Maple tom sound - need help..

I have a Gretsch Renown maple and was recently at a recording studio this weekend. My 12" tom sits over my virgin kick drum by about 3 or 4", slight tilt. It's on a sturdy double tom stand using a 2...

Re: Worst song ever

You're right, and I know a lot of people who agree with you, including myself. However, sometimes I like other people playing their music. I won't say anything negative about them, it's just not my...

Re: Mapex or DW?

I've tried to like DW's, I've played different Collectors kits in many of the recording and rehearsal studios I've been to, even going as far as re-tuning them (TuneBot) to frequencies I like (or on...

Re: Poll: do you double bass?

I'm a #7, but that needs to be defined a bit better. Speed does not make you an expert and playing 200 BPM 16th's when the beaters are 2" from the batter is not something to brag about.

I say #7...

Re: Musically, what are you involved with at the present?

Thanks man, thanks for listening! I have to admit it was a bit much much out of the gate, but I've reeled it in lately. Next record will be less busy. Actually, there are almost no fills in the songs...

Re: I've Got Blisters on my Fingers!

I just recently got them mid-way though a show last Sat. night. The thing is, I rarely ever get them and I play just about every day. Then it occurred to me that the varnish on a brand new pair of...

Re: Have to choose between three kits

Re: Drummers are the smartest musicians

That's what I was referring to, in jest of course. The term "smart" is vague and can be applied to different measures, however I do think you need serious intelligence to have "emotional IQ" (as you...

Re: Drummers are the smartest musicians

One could look at it from this angle: drummers tend to be the smartest in "most" band situations (especially rock/hard rock), since we tend to be the least arrogant, "flighty" or pretentious.

Re: Intermediate drum set advice

Totally agree - either kit is a winner, I had both. Get the silverstar if you plan to play mostly metal or heavy music. The stage custom can handle anything. You can upgrade the batter heads now,...
