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

Yes, I could get a vintage or used A for cheap, but I loath the old A design, and vintage A's are hit and miss with me, especially at medium weights and up.

The new A design is really the...

Re: Double pedal - on it's way out.

I'm very sad to hear about this tumor for the first time.

I'm glad (and inspired) however that you have been able to deal with this so elegantly and creatively.

Great idea using the double...

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

Its probably different people, depending on what kind of ride you are used to. I'm used to soft playing, washy rides. So when I'm on a heavy or a super dry, it throws me off.

Hats, crashes, toms,...

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

I'm leaning toward the ride. I've got to keep that Wide Ride healthy. I'll be able to use the A when I need the projection and where I can sacrifice the tone.

Plus, I can't be using it on every...

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

True, but under the microscope of the studio, I feel a responsibility to have the 'right' gear if at all possible. It makes the mixing engineer's job a little easier and shows a little...

Got called for a Session, YAY! Gear Upgrade?

So, most of the stuff I'm playing now is funk, or folk-alternative stuff. And I've been happy with my gear, namely my Bosphorus Wide Ride and an '76 Acrolite. I also have a 14x5.5 keller maple, and a...

Re: Cutting down drums

If its just an inch, you can probably be fine taking a half inch off each side and you won't have to move any lugs... its just two bearing edges to cut, but that's no biggie.. I've built my own drums...

Re: Tone and thin shells

Thinner shells have a lower fundamental and will yield a richer woodier tone than thicker shells, all other thing being equal. Thinner shells resonate more and contribute more to the overall sound of...

Re: Will anyone ever write another 'classic'

It really depends on what we are defining as a "classic", and that's mostly a personal decision, but..

For most people "classic" immediately refers to the 50s-80s: classic rock, classic R&B,...

Re: 10 prescriptions for productive practice

6 days a week? any less isn't productive? seriously? For beginners or committed university students, maybe yes, but for most people, I'd take this with a grain of salt.

In my opinion, anything...

Re: Serious timing issue

Yea.. if it was a backing track, I don't know how they could have corrected it so seemlessly either.

I saw this when it aired.. my mouth just about hit the floor... such a massive brain fart.

Re: The ostinato

I agree Lar.

An good ostinato in a tune can be a powerful driving force, like an engine.. something you can hitch a melodic or rhythmic idea to and let it go. Or like you said: it give you a...

Re: Double Bass at Home vs. at the Gig

Its definitely more nerves than the physical properties of the pedal and heads..
I don't play double bass, but this happens to me sometimes with other stuff.

Re: Your Holy Grail

I consider the 1920's 14x4 Black Beauty's to be the Holy Grail, or one of them, in the Drumming world.
But like most people, the Holy Grail is not on the top of my to-get lists :)

However, if I...

I was just thinking about this. You'll definitely have to experiment, and it'll be dependent on your playing style and how you tune the snare. But just food for thought....

Re: Snare drum advice please

This is good advise. Buying the drums separately could easily run you more money.

There are a handful of cheap, small kits, any of which would suit you well, Ludwig breakbeat, Sonor players,...

Re: Drum Shell History Questions

That Gretsch kit probably had the Maple "formula" shell: maple/gum ply. Those inner plys are gumwood, not maple.

Also, there are no rules on how to companies should cross laminate plys. Looking at...

Re: Here Comes the Meter Man

Love this tune. So much.

The break is written out in the Breakbeat Bible... maybe a bar or two of the main groove too. Other than that you'll probably have to transcribe it yourself, or do some...

Re: Stick Control - How even is even?

Hearing the 'note' of your stick is not a bad thing at all. The fact the the stick is resonating means you have a relaxed and comfortable grip. If your sticks are pitched differently, it can mess...
