Re: Some cool Modern Drummers...

That would be extra cool if you could get Zak to autograph it.

Re: Multiple Kit Owners, Show Your Favorite Kit

I have a Gretsch/Rogers frankenkit that I bought used in 1977 and a Yamaha Stage Custom kit that I bought in 2011. Thankfully, I don't deal with what ifs. I deal with what is. Neither kit is going...

Re: My sense of time and accuracy sucks. How to practice?

I have the Time Guru app for my Kindle an it has a feature where you can have it randomly drop out and then come back in. Victor Wooten recommends this technique for developing one's sense of time.

I don't get the animosity. I assumed from the OP that the sound guy (or girl) wanted to know how may toms were being used so that he could allocate the proper number of microphones, stands, cables...

Re: How do you save up for gear purchases?

I don't think I spend an inordinate amount on drum gear. I bought a Pork Pie snare drum back in February and justified it to my wife by saying that I was scheduled to receive a bonus in March. I got...

Re: Congrats To Bermuda!

Re: Neurotic

I've had the same basic setup for at least the past 15 years. The only real changes I've made are lowering my crash cymbal height and, just recently, sliding my hi hat pedal to the left to...

Re: EGO's

I used to have a problem with compliments. If someone would compliment my drumming and I knew that I had made some mistakes (usually most of the time) I would be quick to point them out. I've since...

Re: The matching snare

One of the reasons I purchased my Stage Customs was because it came with a matching snare. Not so much bercause it had a matching finish but because it was birch. I wanted a different sound than my...

Re: First time buyer advice

I have a Yamaha Stage Custom birch kit that I bought in 2011. I don't have any experience with the others. A new shellpack goes for $650 new so $350 used doesn't seem out of line. It depends on the...

Re: What drummers have marched?

I think Hannah Ford marched. I saw a video about her explaining her technique and she was saying that the marching instructor was really anal about the sticks having to be exactly 90 degrees apart....

Re: Not denting heads

I don't understand how some drummers see the broken sticks/cymbals/heads as a badge of honor. I guess that I'm just cheap and want my tools to last a good long time.

Re: Good exercises for developing mobility around the set?

I got the Drum Set Warmups book a couple of weeks ago and can already tell the difference. I'm only up to lesson three and I feel more confident and am moving around the kit with 15 - 20 minutes of...

Re: Important question from the new guy.

There are many pictures and videos on the interwebs of Gene Krupa's set up on an riser. I'm sure he wasn't the first to do so.

Re: Famous Metal drummers?

It's funny how the definition of metal has changed over the years. I was going through mo old Modern Drummer magazines and the January 1995 issue had an article entitled "Metal Drummers Round Table"....

Re: Technical question......Song endings

Well, there doesn't appear to be a consensus as to what these things are called. I don't believe that it's a fermata. If I remember correctly a fermata is also known as a hold or a pause. What I'm...

I'm not above cliche'. I do the outro from Led Zeppelin's "Rock and Roll" when the surf band plays "Wipeout".

Technical question......Song endings

What do you call the ending to a song where everyone just wails for about 15 or 20 seconds before a final cymbal crash? I've heard them referred to as concert endings, flourishes, and free-for-alls...
