Re: Simple question?

Dude! What you need to do is buy some new heads for your brother's drums. After that you can seek out a snare and some cymbals.

The heads (top and bottom, mind you) will breath new life into the...

Re: How Hard Do You Hit Your Drums?

Hey Glynes.

It all sounds good to me.

Try cupping one ear while beating the drums a little harder/faster with the other (throwing in a couple of loud bass kicks) when you get those glares :)...

Re: i'm pretty ignorant concerning recording and mics

Hey MFB.

I have the same Rode NT1-A that finn has... It's pretty sweet. Definitely worth saving for... Awesome "room" sound for a great price IMO.

Re: recording please help

Hi MFB and Joe.

Thanks for the info guys... I've been recording my kit for a while with pretty good success and I just bought a bass guitar a couple months ago... It will be interesting to see...

Re: recording please help

Hey Joey.

I'm curious about using two channels for the bass guitar. I would think that the signal sent straight to the mixer would be the best to use... why add another channel???

Re: recording please help

Hey Joey.

I'm basing the numbers on what I've read at Shure.com and other mic companies. Some condensors will handle the load and, as you wrote, some have a 10dB pad. Still, it would suck to...

Re: recording please help

Hi jiyah7.

Whatever you do, don't put one of your new condendor mics in the kick drum. If you do, you'll likely be the proud new owner of only one mic... The SPL (sound pressure levels) from a...

Re: Why does speed matter so much?

Hi Everyone.

I guess it';s not so much that speed matters as it is that it is one aspect of our playing that can be measured.

Re: Jon Dolmayan

Hey beatsMcGee.

Jon is good, I like listening to him. I agree about their 'dumb songs", but I am impressed with their discography. In fact, I'm looking forward to their next album.

Re: Recording Thread

Hi larrylover.

I have my kit mic'ed and they go into a large 32 channel mixer, mixed down and off to the Tascam 8-track digital recorder. It's fun and great for learning.

I also record my...

Re: When do you consider yourself a drummer??

I've been a drummer as long as I've been alive. I just got my first drumkit a year ago, though, and have only been "playing" drums for a year. Long tortuous wait, but well worth it.

If you're...

Re: "Hey! can you play Wipe out"

Hey shuffle.

It's not so much a cultural thing as it is an age thing, I think. I grew up in Montreal and I remember when I first heard that song on the Radio (mid to late 60s). Me and my...

The only things I've spent more of my hard-earned cash on than my drums, is my car and my home... Why on earth would I let someone who's clueless (and probably drunk, besides) even get that close to...

Re: Micing a kit for Recording

Hello.

Two overheads is a good place to start, but I find that they don't do much for the bass drum. To keep expenses and time down, you can use two overheads (placed high enough to catch all...

What are you doing to improve your musicality?

Hi Everyone.

The term musicality is one that I've had a bit of a hard time with. Assuming that it means to be more in touch with the music and what the music is doing, I decided that I better take...
