Re: Good old felt

Never tried putting felt on a res before, but I've always been curious.

You'd think that it would make tuning much more awkward though, no?

Re: Heel-up technique issues?

If you can get your hands on it, check out Jojo's Secret Weapons for the Modern Drummer, Part 2. It's all about foot technique.

Re: I wanted to hate it, but I ended up loving it.

You name your drums too, eh?
Good... I don't feel as weird now... :)


For me, I wouldn't go as far as to say I hated them before, but I certainly never thought I'd own anything by Paiste. Always...

Re: Are drums ever too quiet?

I agree, but There's a point where it becomes like trying to perform open heart surgery with a sledgehammer when playing with sticks.

Context matters of course, but really, we drummers play a truly deafening instrument...

But yeah, it takes me days and days and days to learn something sometimes.

But, that's what is fun about practice time, taking what was once a...

Re: 16" x 16" rack mounted tom?

My old session custom kit had a 16"x14" mounted tom.
I always wished it had legs. Never actually had any major problems with it, but I always cringe everytime I put it on the rack. It felt like way...

Re: Snare strainer tension survey

I like to cut down on the number of snare wires themselves to get less buzz, instead of wrenching the snares against the res too tight.

Re: Am I the ONLY guy that likes the sound of poplar drums?

I had a 20x16" fairly thin-shelled poplar kick for a while. It sounded infinitely better than my old 22x18" Pearl maple kick. Had a great sustain, sounded way bigger than it actually was, which I...

Re: Synthetic head bongos

I'm not really one for arguing skin vs. synthetic, I just personally won't use animal skin heads.

Good to know that there are models that come outfitted with synthetic heads though, looks like the...

Synthetic head bongos

Anybody know of any model of bongos that come with synthetic heads?

I know there are plenty of synthetic heads for bongo, but it seems like finding some that actually come outfitted with them is...

Re: Lp raw series, anyone doin' it with it?

I think the trash snare is interesting, its seems like a drum you could have multiple uses for. The Potz or whatever they're called I find kind of insulting though honestly. They're literally cooking...

Re: Open handed newbie here

Ah okay, I see. Nice, I didn't know DW made something like this. This is essentially a much cleaner version of what I've been doing.

Re: Open handed newbie here

Thanks for the input everyone. I'm trying to dig up my old coordination books. I'll look into these books too.



Hey Jim, how'd you manage to offset your hi-hat such a short distance like that,...

Re: Open handed newbie here

Looks like it would be a very logical and comfy set-up once you wrap your head around the co-ordination needed.

How's that right side hi-hat mounted there, is it attached to the kick hoop?

Open handed newbie here

Howdy folks,
I'm used to having my hi-hat in the middle of my set via an old slave pedal and drive shaft connected to my hi-hat stand. The whole thing has always had quite a lot of play in it...

Re: All Snare Drumset?

Sounds like a lot of fun.

I'd imagine that all the rogue snare buzz would be hard to manage though, no? Your kick drum probably pretty much becomes a snare at that point too, lol.

Re: What's your latest purchase?

Oh man, it sounds SO tasty.
I love the dynamic range you can get out of this thing on an unmuffled head.
Fits in super nicely if you're playing the rest of your drums with your hands or mallets....

Re: Cutting down snare wires

I do the same with 20 strand brass wires, usually take them down to 12 or 14 strand.

If you gently wiggle them around at the ends where they're soldered, eventually they'll give and they usually...

long longtime no post.
