Re: Jazz drummers: How do you work on soloing?

One of the artsy things I like to do is, when playing in a swing style, make your solo based on 16th notes and vice versa. Totally keeps the band guessing' ;)

Re: Camera to Record Some Drumming Things for Youtube

So, since you already have an iPhone, go to the Home Depot and get one of those work lights on a stand thing for $40 and add more light to your shoot. Seems alot cheaper than getting a whole 'other...

Re: Aluminum snare 14 inch die cast hoops

So these are die cast hoops made out of aluminum? How do they sound/feel?

Re: Jazz drummers: How do you work on soloing?

I suppose I don't have much more to add here - but I would take the opposite approach. I get it that you want to become a soloist because you're playing jazz, but for some reason I see this as an...

Re: Camera to Record Some Drumming Things for Youtube

I have the Focusrite iTrack Pre for use with my iPhone and it's not a bad device. You can plug in a microphone XLR, or a 1/4" audio jack, and there's a level control for the incoming audio into your...

Re: Worst expensive snare you've ever owned?

I've never been happy with any of the DW snares I've had. They were all Collector's series, so of course, they cost more than any other snare I've owned, and quite frankly turned me off of maple...

Re: Vintage Yamaha C200 kit- ready to gig!

Yes, it's pretty light relative to those heavy birch Pearl monsters. I'm sure it's some kind of luan, mahogany, and something combination. The one thing that will make it a great traveling kit is...

Re: Steve Jordan

Cheaper still, I have a program on my Mac that can rip and compress commercial DVDs (not blu rays) which turns it into a .mov file that is playable by any of my devices.

Re: Vintage Yamaha C200 kit- ready to gig!

Well, it's not like I no longer have the white head. But since you don't like the red one so much, I'm gonna leave it on just to drive you crazy ;)

Re: Vintage Yamaha C200 kit- ready to gig!

It certainly makes you wonder why you’d need to spend a lot of money on a good sounding kit. However, this kit will fill the need for a good enough kit to leave somewhere without having to worry...

Vintage Yamaha C200 kit- ready to gig!

OK - got my 1967 Yamaha kit ready to go. I patched more holes, installed new heads, bass drum got Gibraltar spurs, and the tom lugs were stuffed with cotton to keep the springs from rattling. It's...

Re: Snares in checked luggage

I wish I could help you there, but the boots were my wife’s. First trip to Nashville and she finds five pairs that fit her really well. So of course, I don’t tell her “no” as to how many she can...

Re: Snares in checked luggage

First checked bag is limited to 50 pounds, as shown here from the American Airlines website: https://www.aa.com/i18n/travel-info/baggage/checked-baggage-policy.jsp

23 kgs is what you're shooting...

I thought your weight limit on the first checked bag was 50 pounds?

Re: What drums intrigue you that you have NEVER owned

A high-end Gretsch USA kit in bop sizes. 14x18 bass drum, 8x12 and 14x14 toms. I'm intrigued to see how good they can sound, but I've never tried it. I think 18" bass drums are too little for my...

Re: How do you know when to crash?

Even if you listened to all the music you could, there's no definitive answer for this. All you can do is be familiar with the music you're playing and eventually the when will become more apparent...

Re: The "Evolution" of the Ludwig Breakbeats/Questlove Kit

Well, that would make it easier to manufacture if they all use the same parts. So Ludwig makes more profit by saving a step or two. I could see these changes being a real drag if it was a top...

Re: Mixer for direct monitoring?

I have no pictures, but I usually stick with a Mackie 1604VLZ3 or a Yamaha O1v, for precisely the reasons you mentioned: I need the available auxiliary inputs and outputs. I think in analog world,...

Re: Deep bass drums

I'm one of those guys who've played them at all depths and this is loaded question because it's dependent on the heads you use, whether or not you're using an internal muffler of some sort. Usually,...

Re: Base Drum volume. HELP Please talk me down off this ledge.

Why not play a big 16x26 bass drum then? That would give you the extra oomph acoustically and you would need no electronics. If you absolutely have to go through a PA, you could literally mic up a...

Re: Base Drum volume. HELP Please talk me down off this ledge.

I think it would be easier to just have the powered sub, a small mixer, then just mic your regular bass drum and run just that through the sub. Circular wood shells can be strong, but I don't think...

Re: Progress on the vintage Yamahas

Just this one so far: https://youtu.be/4-KVBYzf6is

But now the kit is back in pieces for now. I need to pack the lugs on the small tom since one of the springs is rattling. And the bass drum...

Re: Progress on the vintage Yamahas

It's probably some mystery combination of woods. Maybe luan, maybe mahogany, maybe birch. The inner ply that goes horizontal inside the shell certainly looks more maple now that it's been re-oiled,...
