Re: Does anyone make a "quiet" snare drum?

Put a tea towel / dish towel / towel over the drum.

It kills a lot of the rebound and tone, but it sounds like a snare and is about 50% quieter.

Re: Can a love of music (that is not your preferred genre) be learned?

I never liked jazz, I always assumed it was for snobs, and I could never make sense of it. It just sounded like noise to me.

I think you should get into jazz before you get into jazz drumming.

Re: What is the difference of 3/4 and 6/8?

There doesnt really seem to be a common consensus with this issue in my experience. Some guys think in three, other guys think in six, and the argument is usually moot, because they are essentially...

Re: What do you put in your bass drum?

In my 16", I cut a hand towel in two, rolled it up, and taped it to the 6 oclock inside both heads.

Re: Mic reccamendations for home recording?

Im sorry but im going to have to disagree with that one also. Having frequently used both these mics, the Rode just doesnt have the spearkle and transparency of the 414. Also, the 414 has much less...

Re: Creative groove ideas help please.

You could always, dare i say it, NOT play. Listening to it, drums wouldnt really add anything to it, and you can always reserve the right to go to the bar during that song, or slowdance with yourself...

Re: Do you use dampening?

Re: Companies that can do nothing wrong

Thats EXACTLY how I use them. The 414's are amazing overheads, they pick up all the sparkle from cymbals. The U87 on omni has such a natural room sound and enhances drum recordings so beautifully.
