Re: Decided to try this new look!

I must have taken advantage of Andy good nature or he was polluted and slipped up but I own some Guru hoops. Cross sticking sublime, really transformed my non-Guru snare. But I strongly disagree the...

Re: Why Modern Pop Music Is So Awful To Some!!!

I don't understand why people fight over other peoples taste-and especially diss it. I know I don't appreciate or get some music but I always assumed it's just me-not really the music (all I can say...

Re: Gigging with a Ludwig Accent?

Drummers may notice, but I'd wager most people don't even notice the drum kit-but I do think most people will notice a really good or really bad drummer. I find it very satisfying getting a good...

Re: Yolanda Charles - new project.

Man that drippin' love it -funky smooth jazz feel to it. How timely been listening to some new smooth jazz by bassist Brian Bromberg. Yolanda rules others drool though.

Re: Bass drum foot technique

Depends on your condition. I remember a friend of mine pumped gas one summer. One of his forearms looked like Popeye-it was huge compared to the other. I use to run a lot, like everyday-rain or snow,...

Re: Bass drum foot technique

Good point about seat position to kick. I've been heel up almost all my drumming life just in last decade have I really slowly gotten heel down (I've alway had ankle problems from injuries). When I...

Re: Why Modern Pop Music Is So Awful To Some!!!

I don't know all what your saying Mike cause your post are so long I can't follow all of it -though tastefully written;). Yeah I know the irony-given my penchant for long run on paragraphs and just...

Re: Why Modern Pop Music Is So Awful To Some!!!

I agree and would add an education isn't just a piece of paper you receive from an institution that is accredited (I think people put way too much emphasis on that-I've know plenty of PhDs who I...

Re: Why Modern Pop Music Is So Awful To Some!!!

See GrunterDad is stating his opinion-much like I could say I dislike rap cause it's demeaning to women. It in no way reflects that music (or Brussel sprouts) just our taste and sensibilities. There...

Re: Why Modern Pop Music Is So Awful To Some!!!

I said it has to be an argument with merit that stands on its own. I didn't say opinion is an argument with merit-unless that opinion is backed by sound logic or reasoning or by some objective...

Re: Bass drum foot technique

For heel up you need to use your stool for thigh support so you aren't lifting your leg so much with your quads. Your shins are burning like a down hill runner-your putting too much weight on the...

Re: Why Modern Pop Music Is So Awful To Some!!!

LOL you two are talking past each other. Tony's points are valid-not putting words in his mouth-but his argument is you can "dig it" but you will have a greater appreciation and have a greater...

Re: Considering my “retirement” kit

The Vintage Sonors-beech shells, old school-nice kits. Something to think about. Actually after that three kit video Canopus would something different to check out-I know little of them honestly.

Re: Decided to try this new look!

LOL Andy and Larry I'm sorry I didn't mean to offend. I figured if I'm going to put a darker wood hoop it might as well be the best. I'm going all out for Bo. These are now a rare find with an...

Re: Decided to try this new look!

Well I did a quick cut and paste with some darker hoops. I think I like the lighter ones you have better actually-now having tried the darker wood. This darker wood is stunning against the gold...

Re: Decided to try this new look!

Why not buy "Bo" legs LOL Just kidding. Maybe compromise and file down some of the leg and some of the hoop? I think those hoops would look great with some grain and dark lines-maybe shou sugi ban...

Re: Stolen Gear

Having something stolen from you-you feel "violated". I know I do-like some SOB has been messing with my porridge. I felt the same when I lost everything in an apartment fire-violated. It's a curve...

Re: UK Drum Show - who's coming?

Re: Musician vs Artist

Art isn't how you do it but what is created. So musicians, song writers, singers, painters, sculptors, photographers, writers, etc, etc. can "create" art-some more often than others. You can't deny...

Re: Why Modern Pop Music Is So Awful To Some!!!

Re: The 16x14 floor tom

I'm sure all the big drum companies hire engineers and physicist to study drum mechanics. It reminds me of modeling blood vessels-viscoelastic blood in viscoelastic blood vessels. We hit viscoelastic...
