Re: Staining Shells

Just looking to add a little color, figure it could be something to keep me busy, plus I think it would look nice!

Staining Shells

Alright, so over the summer I've been considering staining the inside of my shells, or painting or something. Will this hurt the shells? I haven't really considered type of coating, paint, lacquer,...

Re: When Recording

I do what naturally comes to me and grooves, then I go back and structure the song more, or I'll change the beat to compliment the guitar or whatever. But it takes me like 5 times to find something...

Re: Heel Up - How to do quick double hits?

I learned slide on eliminators, its just a bit weird. Look up spikeydrummer's video on slide on YouTube, super helpful (he also uses eliminators). Slide came easier to me than heel toe/ constant...

Re: Practice Help

Welcome to the forum! Definitely find a good teacher. Something else to look into is rudiments, however practicing those won't do any good right out of the gate and won't do any good unless you...

Re: Any big name drummers ever do something to rub you the RIGHT way?

Steve Moore. The guy is a great drummer and an even better performer, and every year he and his band play at the local car show, and every year I've asked to talk with him he's talked as long as I...

Re: Have you guys heard the new Tama SLP snare drums?

I played on the bubinga one at my local guitar center the other day. They had it tuned really low, which I didn't like at first, but I fidgeted with it a bit, kept it low and once I got it dialed in...

Re: Fusion sizes

No Way! Go big or go home! Square toms!
I'm just kidding :) , that should work fine, I use a 8 10 12 16 set up, none of them even close to square, it sounds gorgeous!

On a more extreme note, I...

Re: Trouble with 12" Tom

I had never seen this tapping on the shell to determine the pitch before! I've tapped on the shell to get an idea of how high/low it would sound but never tried tuning to the pitch the tapping...

Re: Trouble with 12" Tom

Tried the tuning today (same on batter and reso) but the reso had a real nasty overtone. I think it might be my tuning but I'm not sure, so I'll check today. It might just be that the reso doesn't...

Re: Trouble with 12" Tom

You bet I do! Hate to get off topic but! Since my drums are the 100% birch, would a b/b 14 tom sound the same sound wise? Or does the b/b have a really different tone? Big enough that I would be...

Re: Trouble with 12" Tom

Shells flat/hoops flat and round!
Bearing edges perfect as far as my eye can tell!
Collars nice and cozy with great symmetry!
What do you mean by "seated the heads to the particular drum"?
I also...

Re: Trouble with 12" Tom

I bought used, beggars cant be choosers :-) But i tune from the 8 down, the 16 is immensely lower than the 12, but I really like that difference. Tuned that way for as long as i can remember. I...

Alright Folks! Here's my conundrum:
I have 4 toms (all rack, tama 100% birch performer) sized 8x7, 10x8, 12x8, 16x14. The 8, 10, and 16 tune beautifully! However the 12 inch WILL. NOT. TUNE.

Re: Spicing up metal drumming

When I feel like my metal drumming is bland I do 3 things:
1. Try to listen to around 5 new bands, metal or not. That usually broadens my influences a bunch.

2. Listen to other kinds of...

Re: drum snobbery

Personally I dont understand the cymbals, but I see how a lot of drums is useful. The way i have always viewed my dream setup (8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18) is in pairs of three (8, 10, 12) (10, 12, 14)...

Re: Quiet playing

Havent tried blacksticks but we tried tala wands (birch) and those made them sound horrible because of how tight the heads are tuned. Same kind of multi rod concept i think

Re: Quiet playing
