Re: For those who play at church or not.

Some years ago the pastor of our church asked me about a shield because people were complaining about the "loudness" of the drums. I told him that the 1) the drums were not set up and tuned properly...

Re: Kick sound horrible!

I'm assuming you are using other mics and a mixer, right? Can we hear the whole mix?

That kick sound is not "horrible" per se. There are situations where that will actually work. Its probably...

Re: suggestions for best rods and brushes

I'm still using my Regal Tip classics. I remember it was the one I liked most when I bought it many years ago.

P.S. Whatever you get, don't forget coated heads on your snare.

Re: Still having a blast playing at 60; I am even more absorbed now..

I have 9 years to go before retiring (65) from my teaching job and have been thinking of what to do after. Thanks for the idea.

Re: Looking for help choosing a pro level drum kit

Here's another route. Splurge on a killer, keeper snare first. A Benny Greb is under CDN$1000. 14x5 Black Beauty goes for under CDN$700. A Sensitone Brass is under CDN$500. Then get a killer pedal. A...

Re: Pearl Crystal Beat Drums

I also noticed the new Spotlight series. It seems to replace both the Forum and Target. The small 4-piece (10, 14, 18kick, 13 snare) looks like an interesting option for a low cost small kit. All it...

Re: 2014 STAGE CUSTOM, better than ever?

Re: Help with plastic souding Tama Superstar Hyperdrive, PLEASE

Age is not a factor. "Stock" heads simply suck. At least change your batters first. Resos can follow.

Re: Help with plastic souding Tama Superstar Hyperdrive, PLEASE

1) Is your idea of "lower more drum like sound" what you hear in records? If so, then it is very different from the drivers seat. Mics (whether close or far) hear things very differently than your...

Re: Will anyone ever write another 'classic'

The last wedding I went to was of a cousin who is in his 30s, and we danced to a lot of 90s music.

Re: early 70's Pearl? what else?

I have a mid 70s Pearl kit, and Ive seen 70s catalogs. I've never seen these lugs. They could have been replaced, like I did when they started breaking.

Opinions on this kit please

Here I go again. This guy's been selling it for over a year. I don't need it, but I'm tempted. Looks like its from the late 70s. It's equivalent to about US$ 888. Is this a good buy?

Re: How to make my kick sound less boomy without using muffling?

In my experience, cloth/felt strips are better at controlling boom than emads. They usually run almost through the middle of the head, which can cut out more sustain than an EMAD which is only around...

Re: Horrid Snare Ring On Outer Edge

1) Your tuning is too low.

2) Snares really ring when you hit close to the rim.

Re: Can a cheap set be upgraded?

1. Its cool that your band bought you a kit. For rehearsals and small gigs, you can get by with cheap toms and a kick. The only upgrade would be better heads. Start with the batters. Oh, and for the...

You've got it backwards. In my country, LOTS of kids play rock because they want to. Unfortunately, many clubs won't give them gigs if there are too many in a band. But that doesn't stop them from...

Re: 16 bar blues v 12 bar blues

Midnite Zephyr is right. A simple form of 12 bar blues is 12 measures long, 4/4 time signature, I - IV - V (in this case: C7 - F7 - G7) chord progression. Like this:

Re: Disco beat - hihat technique

Its most evident in cut 6 "Earth Juice" (20:55), but Lennie White has the "disco" hihat subtly scattered all over this album. Elsewhere his kick and snare can get very busy at times, so it doesn't...
