Re: Which STEEL SNARE?

Serious.

Although I'll happily defer back to Steve, I'm quietly confident I've read that somewhere along the way.

Re: Argument with Guitarist over time signature

This one has been particularly bloody hilarious, hasn't it. A most excellent giggle.

Although it's difficult to resolve conflict when you're too busy running away from the fight you just picked....

Re: Argument with Guitarist over time signature

I take it that in the full face of adversity, the OP has legged it outta here?

Way to bury your head in the sand.

Re: Keeping time when no one else is...

Agreed on all points. Play with authority. Lead the weakest link, don't be lead by it.

Sure, as noted there may be times when playing live that you've gotta go with the flow to a degree. But the...

Re: How to become a fairly well-known Session Drummer

Sounds like he's taking all these comments on board then.

Anyone else got any advice for him?

Re: Which STEEL SNARE?

Stay away from the piccolo then. They are tight, high pitched and poppy by design. The 6.5" deep drums will be far more towards what you're looking for.



Steel rings. It is by far the...

Re: Which STEEL SNARE?

What sound are you going for?

A 3.5" deep piccolo doesn't (and never will) sound like a 6.5" deep drum, no matter how you cut it. Tell us what you're chasing and we'll be better equipped to offer...

Re: What's your latest purchase?

Aww mate, I'm huge. Last of the big spenders, me.

On Saturday I splurged on a strap for my old Eliminator.

I decided after a couple of years tinkering/playing/re-tinkering/playing and then...

Re: Good quality mid-range snares?

Pearl Sensitone aluminiums make for a pretty good Supra alternative. As does a Ludwig Acrolite. The Acro uses the same shell as a Supra, just without the chrome coating. Both can be found on the used...

Re: Best Drum Pad For A Beginner...?

Generally speaking, a pad is a pad mate. As long as they rebound a stick then you'll be able to get to work on them. So many beginners stress this one out way too much. When I was a kid we used those...

Re: Reinforcing rings

Yeah. Without 'em, we might be lured into believing they are "necessary" on a 9 ply snare drum.

Re: Name famous songs where the drummer overplays

The fact that he was backing a guitarist the likes of which had never been seen, didn't hurt his cause either. When you have that much room to move, a laid back 2 and 4 approach was never likely to...

Re: Name famous songs where the drummer overplays

Re: Unpopular Drumming Opinion Thread

It is apparent that drummers are more prone to pissing and moaning over non-issues than any other collective group known to man.

Re: I don't remember what I practise

If you're forgetting what you're practising, then you're a long way from having "mastered" it I would have thought.

And yes, as with every facet of life, remembering is real proof that something...

Re: Argument with Guitarist over time signature

Argument with Drummerworld forum over time signature, perhaps?

At least the banjo player will be glad to learn there's safety in numbers.

Re: Snare tuning question

You can constantly retune your heads. I tweak them every time I think they need it. Heads are not a 'set and forget' item. The constant pounding they endure will stretch them and as such they need to...
