Are you using for home use only? If so, stick with the 12". the 8" is good when on the go, since it's smaller to carry around, especially in a back pack.

Re: Even rudiment dynamics - how important for beginners?

I would say play dynamics (with each stick height: full, half, low) as even as possible, play as written. Use Accents and Rebounds book, which is written based on Stick Control.

As aside note,...

Whaley Intermediate Snare Drummer - stick heights?

The studies in this book concentrates on practicing dynamics.

If the study (for example page 1) has no accents, would the following stick heights be appropriate:


pp - mp @ 1"
mf - f @ 3"...

Re: finding the sweet spot on the shell?

Kindof what I was thinking. I talked to PinTech, and they say Terry Bozzio does this exact thing.

finding the sweet spot on the shell?

How does one find the sweet spot on the shell? Reason I'm asking is that I want to use an external trigger and mount it on the shell instead of on the head.
