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: I won a drum kit

I have that same hi-hat stand at home! Yeah, it's a Stagg, but I have yet to find a better hat stand for the money. I haven't been able to find another one like it, let alone any information on...

Re: Ripped Bass Drum Head

Marginally at best. You need a new head ASAP.

Re: rare yamaha stage custom ive bought

No, you can buy them everywhere. Just because they're the older models doesn't mean you can't get them anymore. They're all over the used market. You had might as well be calling a Pearl Export...

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...

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

I think your Keller shell or your Acro would do just fine if you tune them appropriately, but I would definitely look into a 'pingier' ride for something like that. I think you hit the nail on the...

Re: Question about Crush Acrylic Drums

My buddy has a kit, and it sounds great. Great hardware too.

One of his shells split recently, though. I don't know if it was due to a manufacturing defect or improper handling. I don't think...

Re: rare yamaha stage custom ive bought

They're not rare. Not at all. Heck, there's a shell pack at my local Guitar Center right now priced at like $350. There are probably two more of them at a local music store a couple miles away...

Of course, we all know that our instruments will sound different depending on where they are. Some rooms just cater to our sound more than others, and there are a lot of factors that go into this,...

Re: Help with plastic souding Tama Superstar Hyperdrive, PLEASE

You said you want the 'nice fat resonance'

For starters, if you're using the stock heads, that's probably 70% of your problem right there. Given that you said 'resonance', I'm going to tell you...

Re: Name famous songs where the drummer overplays

Absolutely, Mike!

I used to be the worst with overplaying. Now I pretty much look at drumming based on this comic.

Re: Do you hear sounds or mechanics when you play?

I know exactly what you mean, but it's opposite for me. It's when I move certain techniques to the hats that I start to have trouble. That's probably due to the fact that, since I bought my new...

Re: I don't remember what I practise

For me, regular practice is just for building skills and abilities, not for learning and remembering grooves and such. Then again, when I really practice, I don't work on grooves very much, but...

Re: Tune Bot Snare Drum Tuning

Funny story, we had a well known touring band come through and we opened for them. On stage, they just kept talking about sofas.

Okay, back on topic!

Re: Tune Bot Snare Drum Tuning

After the first ACCURATE reading. In some situations, I'll get numbers all over the place at first, especially in noisy rooms. Then once you get a reading that seems to match up with what your ears...

Re: Tune Bot Snare Drum Tuning

I use a 10" timbale in place of a side snare, but I don't typically use the Tune-Bot to tune it. I can never get it quite right unless I just tune it by ear.

Also, it's worth mentioning that you...

Re: Tune Bot Snare Drum Tuning

If you're that tight, you're probably getting a bum reading. Try repositioning the Tune Bot closer to the lug, or go to a new lug until you get QN accurate reading.I tune my snare side head to 400...

Re: I can't hear my bass drum when playing live

If you're playing any type of 'hard' or loud music, an 18" kick probably isnt' going to cut it. If you're playing funk as well, I'd probably opt for a 20". They can sound surprisingly big and loud...

Re: No Bounce in right leg

Re: Help with snare drum tuning

That part has a bit of a learning curve to it. What you want to do is, with one hand, strike the snare as you normally would when playing, and with the other hand, tighten the snares until you just...

That's a beautiful kit! And your setup looks so fun to play. I've been slowly moving my hats further in front of me. Eventually I might invest in a cable stand and try out a setup like this. But...

I'll tell you what I did, and I'm still working on it. I just play single strokes in groupings of four, all around the kit, in as many combinations as I can. Start slow enough that you won't make...

Re: How do you not hear your bass drum?

I've never personally used a Yamaha SubKick, but it's essentially just a speaker in a drum shell wired backwards. I used to have a couple of Marshall 1x12 cabinets, and I would use one as a...

Re: How do you not hear your bass drum?

Exactly.

If it just sounds dead and muffled, it's a tuning/dampening issue. People don't often realize that when they dampen their drums, they're losing a lot of what helps them to cut through. ...
