Re: Single Hand Drumming

Just this past Friday night, I watched a drummer playing with one hand while he was filming the crowd dancing on his cellphone with the other hand (ummm ... the crowd wasn't actually dancing ON his...

Re: Will this damage my bass drum?

I have 10" tom, 12" tom, 13" crash, and 16" crash all mounted to my bass drum. No problems. Back in the day, I had the same setup, only 12" and 14" toms. No prob then either.

Re: Putting band name on kick drum head, with multiple bands?

+3 on Drumart. I've bought both the full imprinted head and the "cling-on" decals from them. The decal does cut your resonance, though. Your reso head has to be smooth. I'm currently in 3 bands. ...

Re: Country drummers!

I think modern country is basically modern rock with "twang" in the vocals. Jason Aldean's "Hicktown" kicks serious butt! Rich Redmond is one of the best guys currently out there.

Re: Learning to play well on a 4 piece kit ....

Less is less, and more is more. If you're in a cover band, you need what you need to do the song(s) justice. Phil Collins "In The Air Tonight" on a 4-pc would just be downright lame. On the other...

Re: A rear line day - mini report.

Yes, I'd definitely say it's a "wooden block", but it looks like a large flattened cowbell with slits in the sides(?). I've never seen any...

Re: A rear line day - mini report.

What is the "wood block / temple block" thingie mounted on the boom between the 2nd and 3rd toms? I've never seen that before.

Re: Toms wont stay tunned

PDP CX drums have the True-Pitch tuning system (10-32) threads, The more common/standard pitch is 10-24, If you order Tightscrews, make sure you get the correct ones (if they're even offered).

Re: Thanks ... I think

Not me, but our guitarist. A guy came up to him and said, "Man, you're amazing! You look like you have arthritis when you're playing!"

Re: Dillemma...what to let go of, what to keep

Simple answer ... keep everything! The last thing you want is seller's remorse.

Re: How long does your snare cord last?

I had a supra back in the early 80's, and I was going through cord like crazy. I took the drum to my local shop, and the drum tech there discovered a burr in the hoop cutout.

Re: Does anyone actually like big finales?

Don't like playing them, don't like seeing them, don't like hearing them. Other than that, they're fine.

I was in your exact same situation. I had my white onyx 5-piece for about 5 years, and was ready to add the 16" floor tom. It took about 2 years to find it, scouring CL, ebay, checking...

Re: Favorite Song to Rock out To?

Re: Acoustic Gig

I think it depends on several factors. What gear do you have available? What are you comfortable playing? What is the size/type of the venue? What are your bandmates looking for?

Re: Negotiating more money for a gig.

I can see where the times and an early flight, etc could be a problem for the guitarist, but turning down a paying gig for band practice is beyond absurd IMO.

Re: Selling my Yamaha Beech Customs. What should I ask? (pics)

I didn't go back and read your original post (that you didn't post), but where are you sore, and what kind of pain? Dull? Sharp? Shooting?

Re: Elvin Jones Documentary

That's one thing that I don't get. Drummers (and sales ads) are always referring to adding "colors" and "textures". No, they're sounds. Drums and cymbals (and percussion accessories) produce...
