Re: Inverted Double Stroke problems (Watched Bill Bachman's video)

It is not something that comes with hitting it for 20 minutes a day for 4 weeks. I have been working on my doubles at least an hour a day for about a year now and am just getting comfortable. Not...

Re: The condition of my drums

Unless his house is extremely dry, but either way I don't think a humidifier will produce a damp musty basement atmosphere, which could potentially damage the wood shells.

Re: Anyone here play 3 up with 10/12/14 on a rack?

Getting the toms down low and over the kick is the plan when I built this short stack mahogany kit. It is a 10,12,14 over a 20" kick and a 15X12 floor tom. I made the 3 rack toms 7",7.25" and 7.5"...

Re: "Restoring" my old snare.

I have a hard time picturing a Catalina as an "old" drum. That line can't be much more than 10 years old?
Maybe restoring my ill treated drum would be a better description lol?

Re: The Speed Obsession

Drummers speed often gets to the point of redundancy. We all strive to get our chops a little faster, cleaner, smoother. But I notice when I listen back, a lot of the stuff I work on is to the point...

Re: Did I just figure something out?

Re: practice away from drum set

Grab a Remo putty pad. Can be laid out anywhere, you can hang it in the case on your keychain or in your pocket. Or, find a rich old lady to support you, get her to buy you a kit and a house to...

Re: How Far for a Paid Gig will you travel?

I drive minimum 3-4 hours everyday for my day job. Not a big deal. Tomorrow I play a fall fair in Tilbury which is almost to Detroit, a good 5 hour trip each way. So I play for free and expenses are...

Re: Ringo's Drumming: Harder Than It Looks

So according to all that, Purdie is a lying nut case. I don't know anymore than what little I have read, to me it is odd that with all Purdie's credits, it makes no sense to lie, but people are odd...

Re: Irony?

I wonder how many Todd Sucherman signature snares Stanbridge has built and sold. $5,000 a snare, I doubt very many. So if you were having a signature snare built for you. It can be viewed as a...

Re: Musically, what are you involved with at the present?

Don't think I have heard that tune. And yes I was a little harsh, the reality of the Segar stuff, although I don't think much of the playing, any attempt to embellish or add additional flare or...

Re: Musically, what are you involved with at the present?

Not doing much lately, only because of a lack of motivation.
I am doing a gig or two with a Bob Segar tribute act. I refer to the drummer as "a monkey banging on a desk".
But as bad as the...

Re: something I am building

Nice work on the snare tech! All the attention has gone to the hardware, I assume you also built the stave shell? Overall it is colour co-ordinated nicely and if it has the tone and capability you...

Re: Always sounding bad when practicing

While on the road our guitar player bought a violin. We insisted he go outside to the cube van to practice.

Often I use my sound off's in my practice room (pads) for my wife's sake. I realize...

Re: Solid and tight drumming

As background playing accompanying the band it was clean. But considering this is a drumming forum, I found it a little bland. I felt you could have turned on the aggression a notch, not a lot, but...

Re: Rhythm section practice – a good way to improve the band’s time

A common mistake which I and others I have played with were guilty of. If you happen upon a gig with a really big stage, the first tendency is to spread out the set up. Unless you have a great...

Re: Rhythm section practice – a good way to improve the band’s time

Over the course of 30+ years of live gigging I have done this, but more often than not, other people were not as committed as myself and it either would happen once or twice or not at all. Easier...

Re: Bass Pedal Technique Help: Heel-Up

What Andy says about the inner cut is fact. How many ways can you market the same old stuff. Edges may help bring those old tubs to life, but you also may be disappointed. The edges are only but a...
