Re: How many drum kits are too many?

Too many is when you buy one that provides no advantage over one(s) you already own

Re: Snare is not cutting through!

Exactly! The snare is THE most cutting part of a kit.
If it ain't cutting through, the band around you is too loud!

Re: A little vent

Re: Drum Technique: 11 viewing, Drum Gear: 131 viewing

If people werent interested in drum gear, there wouldnt be so many variants of it.
Plus, a lot of players are looking to teachers and multimedia sources for their instruction these days.

Re: If you had to choose what would you get and why?

Id go the cheapest one - As all will do the job for you, admirably.

Also, dont be too sold on a particular size before youve heard it. Some brands make 20" kicks than can sound fatter than 22's.

Re: So... why *has* equipment gotten so expensive?

Actually, a lot of drum gear in Australia has come DOWN, with the value of the dollar.
I couldnt believe how relatively cheap some of the dw hardware is now, compared to where it was 5 years ago.

Re: 8" deep snares

Its important, I think to mention the FEEL and RESPONSE of deeper snares, as they are a different animal to shallow snares.

I prefer using the 14x8 live because it has a ton of grunt, but also a...

Re: Black Beauty owners - Drumhead advice?

I always found my snares become unresponsive and 'boxy' when using two-ply heads on them (particularly noticable when ghosting), so I'm a little hesitant on using emps.

Are you guys using your...
