Re: Ripped Bass Drum Head

Exactly. You're better off using duct-tape if you're not going to replace the defective head immediately.

Re: Got called for a Session, YAY! Gear Upgrade?

+1. Just enjoy the gig. Afterwards, I like to treat myself to something after a great job ends. I don't recommend buying anything right before a gig. You got there with the gear you have, so play...

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

Since he hasn't posted in over 2 1/2 years, he must be very busy.

Re: Filling in badge holes on lacquered drums

I guess I'm missing the issue. If you don't want the holes, replace the badges.

Re: What a catch (1980's)

Catches.. can go either way. Additionally, I'm sure you're joking about the "obscure" drummer comment.

Re: lessons for lefties

As a career lefty, I can tell you that you don't have to change anything. Your set up is likely like mine as seen in my photos. Simply follow all right-hand specific instructions - backwards. Hat,...

Re: Crazy? (looking for an opinion or two...)

If you're happy with the Rogers kit, and don't need/want two, keep playing the Rogers. If you need/want a new kit- sell the Rogers kit and buy the Ludwigs. Pretty simple. Most people don't have...

Re: Name famous songs where the drummer overplays

+1. Most professionally produced albums are closer to under pronounced drumming than over. I'm sure there are more examples of over pronounced drumming on YouTube from self-released songs than...

Re: 10 essential drum albums....

I agree with most of the list's bands. Not necessarily the albums. Portnoy's favorites are that - a favorites list. No Jazz? No Stones? No Pink Floyd? No Van Halen? No Green Day? No DMB? For me,...

Re: peter criss original ludwig / kiss kit up for auction

That's the difference between musicians and collectors. As a musician, a drum kit is an assembly of tools. I would never pay a penny more for a used kit than necessary. Collectors, on the other...

Re: Yamaha Maple Customs -- Adding a rack tom. What size?

For me it would be 10" or 12" x 8 or 9". It depends on the sound you want. My primary toms are 10, 12, 13, 14. When I want a higher tune for Latin and some fusion, for me, I use 8, 10, 12 & 14. ...

Re: Which snare drum for specific sound

+1. With pre and post recording processing anything is possible. Just get a good snare and tune it, put heads on it and make it sound just like you want it to.

Re: You get what you pay for

My credo has always been " You never get what you don't pay for". Meaning, if you want quality, you have to pay for it. You have to set your own budget and requirements but in the end ( for the...

Re: Which drum kit to buy?

I would opt for the Premier kit. It is priced well and will hold value better than most, if not all here. Afterwards, you can pick up a cymbal pack and hardware and come in around the top of your...

Re: Unable to use fills I've been practicing for hours in my band

Not so much. If you feel the music and go with what feels right it will, or won't be. Your band mates will let you know which it is. As stated above, don't overthink it.

Re: Why so many plies?

I'm not sure that everyone knows this. In fact, I believe, if you ask 100 drummers (not forum members) what the construction of their drums are - most would not know. Additionally, I think, the...

Re: Storing my drums in practice room
