Re: Gong-tastic!

How about a sporting goods store? You can get tennis racket string and just double it up.

Re: The worst gig of my life

I'm ok with sharing a kit a gig. I can swing it on most kits with no problem.

That said, I did once have to put the hustle on a clueless promoter that tried to get 4 bands to share a kit at a...

Re: Advice on Vintage Ludwig Player's kit

I think someone else put it perfectly in another thread, something like: You have the money, they have the candy. Your objective is to get as much of the candy for as little of your money.

Re: What would be your drummer nickname?

My drummer stage name is "King Louie". Louie is an English version of my first name and I figured it sounded like the nickname for an old Big Band drummer that would wear fancy suits to all his gigs....

Re: Sakae Eco Friendly Snares

I think a good rule of thumb is when anyone starts talking about "molecules" and "molecular level" to try and sell something then you can safely assume they're full of it.

Re: Gretsch orphans or new kit?

I actually have since traded the tom for a nice, thin set of older Zildjian hats that work beautifully for my low volume church gig and sold the odd-sized kit for a little cash plus a set of Rogers...

Re: Learning the Single Stroke Roll

Sounds like you're on a good trajectory with your learnin'. The only thing I could add, not a critique just something to keep in mind, is to only play it as fast as you can play it clean. Don't worry...

Re: Would you buy this?

Haah! I'll bet your bandmates have trouble hearing that tiny, little kick drum.

I have been curious about getting a Trick kit. Something about the idea of a non-wood drum just fascinates me. I...

Re: Who builds steambent snares to order?

Good point, I just assumed he meant raw shells. Lots of great manufacturers make steam bent snares.

Re: Who builds steambent snares to order?

Not sure if Vaugncraft is still operating. Other option would be Ego. Haven't heard anything about their shells but they do make great lugs.

Re: How Does Your Band Set Up on Stage?

In my main band I used to always set up near the front. I traded off on lead vocals so it was an unspoken rule that I would take a front spot. Again, this all depends on the venue.

Re: Ever have a drums finish sway you away from purchasing it?

I have paint stripper and just bought a power sander. I am not afraid to ruin a perfectly good, boring factory finish if it isn't what I want out of the drum.

I had my Stage Customs sliced up and...

Re: Are you familiar with Jammin Sam's drum wraps?

He is actually right here in the valley so he is local to me. I haven't exchanged money with him yet but I spoke to him at length on the phone. Very helpful and answered all my questions.

Re: German grip, which German?

Also the name of a white supremacist singing duo. They ended up discovering marijuana and abandoned their racist ways. True story.

I am all for re-labeling German grip as Polish grip.

Not quite a triplet. I call those "Cumbia triplets". It's a 16th note with a rest in there. So you'd count it:

Re: Other songs that sound like other songs

There is a part in a Marilyn Manson tune "Dissociative" that sounds just like the bridge from "Band on the run". Don't think that ever came to litigation.

I like that! That's going to be my angle from now on. I'm getting another used snare. I'm going green.
