Re: Tips for easy loading - my car my way

Yup. I try to balance any vehicle I load, even if it's just arranging passengers.
I forgot to mention I have some motorcycle tie downs to keep thing stationary. I figured that was implied, but a...

Re: Tips for easy loading - my car my way

I've got a Ranger, which tend to lean because the fuel tank, battery and driver are all on the left side. I usually put the heavy hardware bag/case on the right side, lengthwise, towards the front...

Re: Tinnitus (ear ringing)

I've read it can be entirely neurological and stem completely from issues in the brain itself. You're going to have to stab real deep to make that ringing go away. (Disclaimer: Don't do that.)

Re: Tinnitus (ear ringing)

Did anyone else get spammed in their PM box by "winninteamxtra" because of this thread?


I envy you. I just had two beers and the only side effect of them is louder ringing, and less money in my...

Re: Bearing Edge Dressing

Good info. I have some shells that I hope to cut down and modify soon. I got a stick of the Drum Dial Bearing Edge Conditioner. I figured it was worth trying.

I've done tung oil on the interior...

Re: Mapex Hammered Phosphor Bronze Snare?

Old thread, but I missed it the first time too.
I've had three of these snares from Mapex. I got the 14x3.5" because I couldn't find their aluminum snare. I sold that when I got the aluminum one. ...

Re: Tinnitus (ear ringing)

Yup, I have tinnitus here. I had it before I started playing drums. I know it's impossible to cure, but I started reading up on possible causes. I found I'm highly zinc deficient. I also think...

Re: Worst song ever

Ok, I get the hint: You have to love and worship The Beatles on DrummerWorld.com. Typing anything in response would be like playing chess with a pigeon, so I'm done here.

Re: Worst song ever

WhoIsTony?, tamadrm - I know I'm not going to change any fan boy minds on The Beatles. Their music never did anything for me, which is fine, and then I did "open a book" (actually several) and learn...

Re: Worst song ever

Worst song I've heard on the radio... That's a tough one. We Built This City is probably one of the most irritating songs, if not THE most irritating. I heard a lot of crap on the radio while...

Re: Aluminum Die Cast Hoops

Premier made aluminum die cast hoops, but I'm not sure if they had 10-lug ones or not.

Re: Any drum builders or customisers?

I thought there was, years ago. Guess not?


Awesome. Thanks for the info and video. That's about what I was thinking.

Re: Any drum builders or customisers?

Awesome, thanks for the help!

The table saw has a fence and all the other bits with it still, so I figured I'd use that to my advantage to keep the cut straight while spinning the shell around. ...

Re: Pretty frustrated with adjusting to an acoustic kit

It's a technique thing, inherent in the difference between the two physical surfaces you're striking. Whenever I've had to play e-kits, I had to consciously play the bass drum different to avoid...

Any drum builders or customisers?

I picked up a 1.5hp Craftsman router and aluminium table today, for $30, so I can finally cut bearing edges properly! (Once I get bits.)

I also have a table saw my neighbour gave me a while back....

Re: Poll: do you double bass?

#6
If I can find a way to tastefully throw it in there, depending on the music, I will. Some music requires it. Sometimes it's just a nice, quick little accent.

Re: Plasti-Dip - Ludwig Rockers

I cringed reading the title because I've seen what people do to their cars with this crap. You pulled off a good look though.

Re: More creative drumming with a cape on?

Should I use a proportionately larger cape when playing my double bass kit than I do when playing my single bass kit? Or do the laws of "less is more" apply to capes as well?

Also, what is the...

Re: Insulting a member on the bandstand

Unless there's more to the OP's story than we realize, the bass player sounds like he was there for his own self gratification. I'm assuming that when you signalled for him to speed up, it was a...

Re: If you could research any drummer...

Interesting question. I don't know if there's one guy I'd pick to learn so much about. I like to take bits and pieces from several things and put them together.
I'll pick Stewart Copeland. I have...

I've done two open mic nights. It's best to ask questions where it's being hosted.

One I had to bring my gear. The whole band did. It was a very diverse open mic night. Dancing, comedy,...

Re: Mapex Armoury

If they have the finish you want at the price you want to pay, go for it. Having the ease of mind about a warranty is always nice. I've had several different Mapex kits. The quality is great and...
