Re: Ludwig floor tom leg placement?

I noticed that too on my Ludwig Keystone kit the other day as I'm cleaning it from an eBay auction. My Mapex floor tom legs/mounts are more evenly spaced around the drum. I won't lose sleep over...

Re: Where Do You Fit? - Poll

I've been a #3 since 1989 and "graduated" to #2 around 2008. Our band is on a big upswing now and we're having a lot of fun. It affords me creative, financial, and emotional freedom.

If a #1...

Re: Anika Nilles

She is a great drummer, and tasteful at it too.

I think if I had a make-out session with Anika and then Emmanuelle Caplette, that I could die a happy drummer LOL.

Re: Tuning toms to octaves

I do a very similar thing and also works out to be where my toms sing the best.
10 and 14" and kick - D
12" and 16" - G or A
Snare = G#

Re: Is Dennis Chambers ill?

I know, right? The man's got raw natural talent indeed. I try to practice/mimic some of his stuff and my limbs are like "I can't do that yet" lol.

Love you Dennis, see you again!

Re: Favorite Song to Rock out To?

Yea, if you mean all-out, sweat-inducing, heart-pumping songs to immediately drum to (including air drumming!) then it would have to be some of these:

Deftones - Swerve City

Re: Do you play the drum part exactly the same each night?

This is exactly how I play as well for my covers band. The only thing I have free reign to improvise on is a 3-4 minute drum solo in our Led Zeppelin medley (in Bonzo fashion of course!).
