Re: Creating A Logo

Yep. That's exactly what we did. Came up with many ideas which we haven't yet made a final decision on!

Re: Who Here Loves Rock

I love punk. I spent my teenage years listening to & going to punk gigs. I've previously been in 2 punk covers bands & now I'm in a band that plays punk originals. I still go to many punk gigs. Punk...

Re: Sonor essential or Mapex Armory

Hahaha. I have stock heads on my Armory & they sound just grand. I'll probably switch them for the coated Emps/clear Ambos I already have at some point, but there's no rush.

Re: Any of you guys and gals on Twitter?

I'm @matt_dodeska and my tweets are a mix of music, football & daft stuff.

There are some great spoof accounts I follow too.

Re: Mid-range drums stock heads comparision and other features

The B&M stores won't disappear, there will just be fewer of them & they'll be bigger so that they can show more lines.
The place I just got my Armory from had loads of kits on display from pretty...

Re: But What To Wear?

We played a gig last year on a bill of mostly "Oi"-type punk bands (Sham 69 were the headliners). We are not of that type, but we are a punk band.
We knew, and were proved right, that ALL the bands...

Re: Mid-range drums stock heads comparision and other features

I bought an Armory kit a couple of weeks ago. Although I have a set of coated Emperors/clear Ambassadors I could throw on, the stock heads sound pretty good at the moment.

I'm sure pretty much all...

Re: What's your latest purchase?

Bought a Mapex Armory kit in Photon Blue today (22/16/14/12/10), complete with an Exterminator snare. Looks great & sounds great too, and the snare is a cracker.

Re: Brain Game

This. After a few minutes of trying I could pretty much do a circle & what would pass for a square! I'd guess that with practice it'd be more accurate.

Re: Direct Inguinal Hernia Surgery-drumming life after?

Are you having open surgery or a Laparoscopy? That will make a difference in your recovery too. Generally speaking, you should expect to be fully recovered after about 6-8 weeks.

Re: Is it OK to talk about the movie "Whiplash" yet?

Watched it last night & I enjoyed it. I didn't see it as a "drumming movie" as the story has been done many times before, but usually using some form of US College sports team/hard-ass coach as the...

Re: Video Demo: Mapex Versatus Snare

But it's not is it. That's the Saturn snare that comes with the kit!

I thought the snare in the original post was very "meh". Nothing special considering it's supposed to be specially designed to...

Re: What was the first concert you went to????

I was at that too, & I have to agree with you. Even though I've seen hundreds of bands in concert that has to remain the best I've ever seen.
If you look closely you can just see me, just there,...

July 5th 1978 I saw Magazine at Bradford St Georges Hall. That began a lifetime of gigs!

Re: How do you measure a snare for a snare bag?

Try looking at the Ahead range of bags. I have a set & the snare bag is a perfect fit. They are in a teardrop shape, which allows for the throw fitting in the bag.

Re: Anxiety before a gig

I used to get a bit anxious when I was in a covers band, which was probably because I knew that people would be comparing our versions to the originals. Now that I'm in a band that plays our own...

Re: Good Snares for Metal?

I picked up my (very lightly used) Chad Smith snare off ebay for 82, and I regularly see them on there go for less than 100.
The OP would do just grand with one of these.

Re: Questions about kick drum heads

TBH, if I was buying a graphic for my drum head I wouldn't want to have to do any trimming at all. You'd be better making it an inch smaller rather than an inch bigger.
As has already been said, you...

Re: The side snare

I use a Mapex MPX 10" steel snare for accents. It has the tom fitting that enables me to attach it to my crash stand, saving me having to use another snare stand.
