Re: Laptop/backing cutting out live

Before going down the SSD road, have you tried the easiest methods to confirm (and potentially solve) vibration as the cause, e.g. lifting it from whatever surface it's on with foam?

Re: Terry Bozzio megakit (pics from recent clinic)

Contrary to the other guys, I have to say, I have a small measure of respect seeing photos that seem to show him doing some degree of his own tech work on that kit.

I saw that kit at Drum Channel...

Re: DW Collectors Series without re-rings?

Probably maple/mahogany shells. However, you can get exotic inner plies - just costs extra. Frequently exotic kits will have the re rings match the outer exotic ply.

As far as the rings go, re...

Seconded. Chris is the guy to go to. I've heard many kits redone by him. All amazing.

Re: Did they make Black Beauties in the 40's, 50's or 60's?

The Black Beauty was not listed in Ludwig's catalog after 1935. It wasn't until the 70s that they were produced as such again.

The name "Black Beauty" wasn't formally used by Ludwig until the 30s...

Re: New Black Beauties

Bear in mind, the 1920s are utterly different in construction. IMO the 1920s versions are the absolute best, but the modern ones are still great.

Re: Ludwig Black Beauty questions

There's a few types of rings here. Audiotech is dead on. EQing out an offensive ring is bad planning and should have been killed in the room. Unless certain sounds are going to be explicitly achieved...

Re: Snare drum tuning, I'm not sure if I'm doing this right

Which is closer to the rest of the drum's pitch?

You're trying to get everything even. You'll bring some down, some up, and some won't change.

Don't think of one at a time - find what note is...

Re: Hoping to get a 26-28 kick soon

Tune a 28" higher than you think you should. If you tune it like you would a 22, the fundamentals are going to be very low and the drum will actually sound thin and flappy. (Pay close attention when...

Re: Jack White's drummer

Yeah, Carla sits high and she (like the rest of Autolux) never have seemed big on stage presence (IMO).

That said she's really good and more inventive (and steady) than Meg ever was. Glad to see...

Re: Neil Peart's drum sound

Regarding the drum sound:

The high point for me was either the Tama or Ludwig era.

The live albums of the last 10 years or so are unlistenable at this point from so many angles so I don't have...

Re: Abe's Set up and technique

Super comfortable way to play a big kit. I'll have to try it soon - when I had my 28-14-18 setup the 14 was in a different zip code than the 18. Definitely the way to do it!

Re: Best jazz albums(with great jazz drumming)?

Re: Vintage Ludwig Black Beauty Snare

I hadn't heard about the 70s being drastically heavier. You're sure that's accurate? The 20s models are definitely heavier than the current drum; 2-piece shell welded at the bead and with sealed...

Re: small vehicles that can transport drums

+1. 28" 14" 16" 18"? No problem.
4-piece + mics and recording gear and hardware? Easy.

Best car I've ever owned. Low maintenance, easy going.

Re: BIG Bass Drum Size Question

It's not about the hardness of hitting... and harder is not always better.

Think about how quick you can move around on a 12" tom compared to a 16".
Same thing applies to a 22" bass drum vs a...

Re: 30" bass drum too big?

I play a 28" now and again.

Tune higher than you think you should - the fundamental of a 28 or a 30 is quite low and tends to go to just mud and nothing if you tune it like you'd tune a 22.

Re: Black Beauty vs Supraphonic 402

Put simply: I own over a dozen snares, and the Black Beauty would be one of the last to go. (The true last ones would also be Black Beauties - they're just from the 1920s - would let go of the modern...

Re: Thoughts on Warp in Pro Tools and Flex in Logic 9?

Tons are already.

Read an engineering and recording board sometime. It's a fact of life: crummy (don't confuse with small and obscure) band comes in, pays their cash, records, et voila, a fixed...

Re: Thoughts on Warp in Pro Tools and Flex in Logic 9?

Hardly a new development - most of the same auto-tuned tracks are already beat-detectived to death. In certain genres it seems to pretty much be a fact of life.

Re: Need to know the Fonts.

DW's logo is likely a one-off that may have evolved into an in-house typeface.

You'd have more luck using an EPS of their logo than trying to approximate it with a font.

Pretty much anything that Rudy Van Gelder produced in the classic Blue Note era is going to be as clear, if not clearer than most other recordings. Don't equate rock recordings of the 50s-60s with...
