Re: Drumming and Diabetes

I was unsure about using drumming as exercise for quite a while, but it actually is pretty good cardio.

I own a heart rate monitor, because I do exercise frequently, and I like to make sure I'm...

Re: More creative drumming with a cape on?

I started putting a cape on my snare, but it keeps getting caught in the drive shaft of my pedal. How do you guys prevent this?

Re: Not doing a gig because of the venue

There is one venue where I live that is actually a really nice place and was built 'to better the music community' or whatever, but they're pretty notorious for screwing over touring bands by taking...

Re: worth it?

It was a winter tour that had them driving through the Rockys (I told them that was a bad idea). Some days were 40 below zero with the windchill. Coming straight out of the cold into climate...

Re: worth it?

Oh come on now. A friend of mine cracked two of his acrylic shells during a tour, due to the constant temperature and humidity changes. He now tours with a CB kit. That way he doesn't have to worry...

Re: worth it?

Making a kit sound nice is about 80% tuning and head selection. You can make virtually any drum kit sound good if you know how to tune.



He means don't sell one kit to buy another kit that's...

Re: worth it?

Not really. You might hear a negligible difference, but not enough to make it worth the extra cash. Instead, you should just use that money to upgrade your cymbals if you aren't happy with your...

Re: Am I the only one here that hated the Kick Port?

I love them for low end - intermediate level kits, because in my experience, they make a world of difference, but professional tier kits typically sound great as they are.

I've never had them...

Re: Pork Pie Little Squealer Maple, anyone got it?

I'd say it's too small for a main snare. I own the maple/birch 13x7 vented Little Squealer and it's great. But something that small, I would only use as a side snare or something like that.

Re: Playing sick (the show must go on)

I don't really have anything bad, personally.

I was running sound last week. There were two bands touring from Minneapolis, and three locals. The singer of one of the locals had gotten a tooth...

Re: Best way to Re-stain drum shells

Agreed. If it's already a stain finish, you don't know how deep that is, and it may be deeper in some spots. I would say there's too much risk in sanding the original stain off. You'd be better of...

Re: Help! Am I being a control freak without realising?

Precisely. I understand if you specifically pay for that rehearsal space for that band solely. Then I could see wanting a little cash to help fund that, but if it's a space you're going to pay for...

Re: Do Big Snares Tune Better Than Small Ones?

If you're speaking just on the drums' individual abilities to be easily tuned, that has less to do with the size than with the bearing edges, lugs, and shell construction. If you're talking about...

Re: Soooooo, I noticed something ........

I'm glad you're progressing.

The last few weeks, I worked on independence exercises a lot, and well, they worked. I have much more limb independence. If I get a text, I can usually check it and...

Re: Ugh! I hate my feet!

I watched a Mike Johnston clinic, and he showed an exercise that he uses for his kick speed.

You loop a right hand paradiddle (R-l-r-r), right hand on the hats, left hand on snare, but for every...

Re: Is *not* being told you played a great gig as good/better than being complimented?

The unfortunate truth is that if a drummer is doing his job correctly, a lot of people don't pay much attention to him/her. It's when the drummer is making mistakes and/or overplaying that people...

Re: Got called for a Session, YAY! Gear Upgrade?

You must not have played very many different weights and sizes of rides. My 24" is definitely a MUCH different feel than my 20". It's thinner and has a lot more give to it. There's much less stick...
