Re: Looking for a single mic to record covers at home

Well I just got done reading this http://recordinghacks.com/2012/02/19/best-inexpensive-drum-overhead-mic/ and thought the OP might find it useful. It's part three of a series of sub-$200 mics....

Re: Post your youth pics here.

If anyone cares to know how I looked a year ago, look at uniongoon, make him shorter and scrawnier, and add a beard and some chest hair. It's pretty eerie, actually.

Unfortunately, I got rid of...

Re: Looking for a single mic to record covers at home

I've used and can recommend the AT2035. It's supposed to be better than the 20. It's definitely better than my mxl 990, whick I've used alone on my kit many a time with good/serviceable results....

Re: Drum Building Zenith? Where to now?

Free-floating steambent salt shaker...for maximum shake. Cover it in microban and add a hinged dust-cover-flap, too.

I had a crazy idea earlier. A big nasty one-piece drum set "shell", 3D-printed...

Re: Drum Building Zenith? Where to now?

Psh. Plywood cylinders (of predictable dimension and arrangement), triple-flanged stamped hoops, bolted-on cheap metal lugs. That's cool that it's all more affordable and consistent now, I guess.

Re: Which to choose

I say see how far you can take your heel-heel-toe-toe technique. Show all those hxcx trigger-happy scene kids what real man legs can do.

And if back trouble is your problem, seriously consider...

Re: Drummers writing full songs using Guitar Pro?

Don't expect to find anything halfway decent that comes included with a DAW. Serviceable synths, maybe, but realistic guitars, not so much. You should look at virtual instruments.

My friend has...

Re: Getting Used to Sounds

That too!

Since my last head change, I noticed that my 12" tom always sounded the best to me, my 8 and 14" were alright, and my 10" tom was always a little bastard that had some weird sound to it....

Re: Acoustic vs electronic drums: are they catching up?

Some mesh heads are better than others. Better than pads but still kind of "easier" to play on than a real, plastic head. Most that I've played have been a bit too stretchy, kind of like a...

Getting Used to Sounds

Have you guys ever hated the sound of something, but then used it enough to where you were indifferent or even grew to like it?

Back when I was younger and dumber, I "needed" to have a china...

Re: Advice needed!!

I'm assuming that you're ordering this shell to be drilled to your specifications. I would say that the lugs are "low", or that they are close to the bottom hoop and not close to the top hoop. I...

Re: Software to make drumless tracks

Pretty sure that Roland R-Mix is the best thing out there for taking apart mixes. You still can't perfectly remove or isolate one thing, but you can get most of it.

Not sure how it works, but from...

Re: ultimate star wars kit

You need R2-D2 and C-3PO octobans.

The Rebel and Imperial logos would be cool printed on the hihat and ride, respectively. Provided it's a "dark" ride.

Chewbacca would be a better kick drum...

Re: Metal drum kit? (shell material, not music :)

I vote bronze!

And I'm not a huge fan of brass, but it would be interesting to see/hear a brass kit.

Re: Looking to get into drum recording

My 2 cents:

The fewer high-end gear versus more cheap gear is a good argument. When I was in high school, my drafting teacher told us "if you don't have time to do it right the first time, then...

Re: Heavy music, where did the ride go?

The ride cymbal died in heavy music, but then Brann Dailor brought it back from the dead. Meinl calls it the "Ghost Ride".

True story.

Perhaps you should contact the dealer and explain that these are not in the sizes you ordered, but ask if they are still returnable after you play them since you would like to hear how they sound.

Re: Problem with Toms 'n Bass

Depending on your cymbal stands, you can probably mount your toms on them instead of the bass drum. There will still be some sympathetic resonance, but they won't be directly coupled, so the ringing...
