Re: Singers and percussion

Better that they KNOW they can't do it -- than a singer who THINKS they can!!

I've played with a singer who was constantly going to Tambourine, shakers or (horror of horrors) cowbell --- and could...

Re: New product idea again

I play heel-up probably most of the time - but constantly switch back and forth between heel-up and heel-down, sometimes within the same measure... not sure an angled so-and-so like you describe...

Re: GRETSCH BROOKLYN mediocre bad quality?

Wow, that's really surprising... I've loved the few Brooklyn kits I've come into contact with (sound and appearance) - but this is enough to scare me away.

Good luck to you in finding a...

Re: Grateful Dead Announces ‘Unprecedented’ 80-Disc Box Set

I'd be tempted to buy this ridiculous box-set if they could guarantee me that for the remainder of my days I would never again have to be subjected to another one of their meandering, plodding...

Re: Stage Etiquette

Interesting Andy -- I'll take that under advisement, I almost always have carefully removed the mic's and placed them somewhere safe while moving my kit off the stage. I think I got into this habit...

Re: Some Pearl Vision Porn ;)

I believe they sound fantastic... I've had great experience with Exports on up in the Pearl line - but please, I beg you, wrap them in a nice silver sparkle or something!! ;-)

Re: Can you read sheet music?

Can I read sheet music? Yes...

Am I fluent enough to Read/play at a reasonable tempo? No, I can't... I admire guys that can sit down throw up a chart and play -- I can't see myself ever...

Re: Why the "hate" for nylon tips??

I never really liked the feel of them -- they do feel a little different. I've had them go flying off the stick as well on occasion... I'm kind of on the fence as for the difference in sound --...

Re: Ever forgotten your hihat clutch?

in the past 30+ years I've got more use out of my spare bass drum pedal than probably anything else... broken chain, springs even a bent beater shaft. Broken snare heads are probably next in...

Re: Is this "Unprofessional"

I wouldn't say 'unprofessional' -- maybe a learning moment for the drummer. Always bring everything you think you might need -- I've had a pair of brushes in my bag for years and have used them...

Re: In with both feet!

Congrats! You're putting in the work up-front and that'll surely pay off. Go in there and do your thing and hopefully it's a good fit.

Good Luck and welcome back to the drums!

Not that I need another reason -- but this serves as one more reason to stay the He-double hockey sticks out of church!

Re: So...where do you keep your spare sticks?

I don't drop a lot of sticks - but when I do, more often than not, it's my right stick -- I just fish around in my stick back (also on my right) when it does happen.

Years ago I used to have a...
