Re: Why do a lot of people think that jazz can't be aggressive?

Philly Jo uses a rimshot in a very unique way, give it a listen.

Re: is there a 20" kick that sounds like a 22"?

I think heads will make the biggest difference for you here. Try out Evans' mesh front head with a muffled front head and slightly open tuning. That should be pretty punchy...

Re: NEW KIT!!!!

Well, as a way to break the perceived trend of endorsement vs. ownership. I will start by saying I do not own any of these kits but have played all extensively. They are all fantastic kits in their...

Re: Extremely Articulate Snare For Low-volume Jazz

Apologies, allow me to amend my statement, with the exception of orchestral and marching snares, shallower is usually crisper.

Re: dw tuning (timbre match)

Translated from marketing-speak, "Buy our drumsets, they are better."

Re: dw tuning (timbre match)

I think what most people are saying is that it is not an essentially aspect of making a great sounding kit. I also feel that considering all of the variables considered, from lugs to heads tuning...

Re: Extremely Articulate Snare For Low-volume Jazz

Agreed, materials aside, a shallower snare will always be crisper, more articulate so to speak.

Re: sounds of drum shells

I'm fairly positive that the intention is 100% maple versus older vintage shells where basswood, or poplar were used on the inner plies.

Black Beauty Snares vs. Knock-Offs

I'm not sure if this has been covered, however I didn't look either. But I'm also certain people don't mind answering even if it is redundant. If you have seen my other thread, you know I am...

Re: New Snare Drum?

Yes, I realize about walnut. I want its warm overtones again. The best and most favorite kit I've ever owned was a round badge walnut. It was beautiful.

Why no Dunnett? Overpriced? Not a good...

New Snare Drum?

Well, we could go with the "get what you want, or what sounds best to you" mantra, but I don't feel like prostituting myself to countless hours in a drum store whilst people wail away on various sets...

Re: Is anyone playing a 20 x 20 bass drum?

I agree, I find that my 20x20 can be used for all kinds of sounds and its just selecting the right heads. Namely, I dont use any with built in muffling, why limit yourself? I use a fiberskyn as a...

Re: Is anyone playing a 20 x 20 bass drum?

I love my 20x20. Its great in terms of versatility. Anything from bop to led zep can be done, fairly well. I have also seen a myriad of 20x20 products, ie cases, become available, so I think...

Re: Showing off v. Professionalism

I'm not going to take a Chad Smith versus Virgil Donati side, but I will offer an analogy.

As with all things, I liken this to science. Think of the "non stop polyrhythmic" stuff as the...

Re: has anyone bought internationally from cymbalsonly.com?

Tony is an excellent shop owner, and drummer. The recordings are spot on, and he does a great job of showing you the individuality of each cymbal. I would only buy from him. I got all of my...

Re: Strengths & Weaknesses - some thoughts...

Also, to help with dynamics, take away your sticks for a while and play with brushes. Play the same beats, you will eventually get your dynamics under control. Or another method to force dynamics...

Re: Advise with smaller set

Re: Need help to buy a new kit!

Agreed, save tons of money by building your own. Plus, you get every single aspect custom to your liking. The set I built myself would have been $6500 from DW, or $7800 from Sonor's SQ2 (thats with...

Re: Bonham's right foot - how did he do it?

As far as I know, technique and speed are not endemic to style/genre. And yes Buddy did play rock and other styles when he had to, but Buddy liked to play big band.

Re: Bonham's right foot - how did he do it?

I'm not here to ignite a fire, but to simply point out that as long as Rich and Morello were alive (they were), Bonham certainly couldn't have been the fastest or most powerful.
