Re: What drummers need for a gig

Hihat clutch. Aside from my drums, cymbals and stool, I always bring one of these.

I was absolutely amazed to discover that it's possible to be landed with one that actually doesn't work on a...

Re: The matching snare

I have the matching snare for my main kit. It took over a year of searching to find it but I got there in the end. Bought it for a song from someone who had absolutely NO idea what it was he was...

Re: First proper gig - report

All the best drummers drop a stick at least once per gig. The ultimate drummers manage to make that stick drop occur *just* at the climax of their bands biggest tune. The absolute elite of drummers...

Re: Has anyone or famous drummers recorded with these crap drums?

Re: Competition - early heads up for forum members :)

Hmmmmmmmmmm...

My snare sounds amount to "snares on, snares off, rimshot".

Think I'll let the others do the entering :-(

Amazing idea though - 10/10!

Ignoring the first minute and a half, how good is this...?

I LOVE the "snare" sound - anyone know what that is constructed from? And what are those enormous raw looking china's?

I Honestly did not expect this when I clicked...

Re: suggest a radiohead song to learn

My Iron Lung and Climbing Up The Walls are great grooves.

Iron Lung just because it ROCKS (remember when Radiohead wrote proper rock songs with proper sung vocals? Its been a while!) and Climbing...

Re: Tip of the day

Yup, had never occurred to me either. And now you mention it I cannot believe I've gone so many years of aggro at gigs sorting this one out!

Aargh!

And thanks!

Re: Snares vs cymbals

This is something I too have been getting into these past couple of months, and I see a lot of mileage in it.

Wincent 7A's have a small barrel tip at the end of a very hefty shaft (unlike the...

Re: OH technique - front to back?

I'm afraid I can't help you with your question, but I'd just like to applaud your feat of getting 7 tracks recorded in 8 hours!

It took the best part of a day for me to get just 4 songs down on my...

Re: Snares vs cymbals

I find that convincing the wife is a LOT easier if you sell the occasional cymbal and then make a massive show of packaging it up and lugging it down to the post office. That way I create the...

Re: Snares vs cymbals

Now THERES a handy tip for us all - different cymbals for different acoustic environments.

Not only very useful, but handy ammo to justify the purchase of more cymbals!

Glad to hear there's...

Snares vs cymbals

Now I know I sell cymbals so it's hardly surprising, but I find myself with an ever increasing and changing cymbal collection. I got through sickening amounts to find just the right sound I'm after,...

Re: Wearing hearing protection issue

I can only echo what has been said already by others here - your hearing is vulnerable and once it's gone it's gone.

Funny looks or not, I ALWAYS wear hearing protection. Drums, gigs, power...

Re: Echo sound that come from toms bad for hearing?

When it comes to hearing loss it isn't the frequencies so much as the sheer volume.

Loud bass or mid frequencies can make you deaf just as easily as loud high frequencies.

I remember seeing...

Re: Echo sound that come from toms bad for hearing?

Agreed wholeheartedly - the most vital piece of gear on any kit is the hearing protection.

Re: Self study

I'm in full agreement.

Without self reflection how can we hope to improve?

I do it all the time. For every cringeworthy moment I make a conscious effort to do better at the next gig, and by...

Re: Endorsed to who?

Haha! That'd work for me too.

In respect to the OP, I'd take Guru for my drums, Yamaha for my hardware, Aquarian for my heads, Wincent for my sticks and no prizes for guessing my preferred cymbal...

Re: Noticing a few trends here

That's a pretty unique observation that now I think about it I kind of agree.

I saw an incredible street brass band recently called Brassroots (get it..........?) and prior to playing a note I...

Re: How cool is this? Pearl Spin Tight tuning rods

That's a pretty nifty idea, but in the end for me it'll all come down to price: there are a LOT of tuning rods on my kit and I'm not about to spend a small fortune on replacing all of them when 20...

Re: Noticing a few trends here

Agreed. It makes those hours we spend fine tuning our gear worthwhile! Certainly it gives me the energy to continue putting the effort in :-)

Re: Noticing a few trends here

Re: What is your local music scene?

Round here the main problem is venues.

You can either play in a pub or a very small bar, or you have to be big enough to fill a medium sized, dedicated venue. There isn't really anywhere between...
