Do you keep your cardboard boxes?

Just wondering?

I have a big pile of cardboard boxes in my garage that my drums and all other gear came in.

Am I a hoarder?! I think I should either throw them all away or at least break them...

Re: guitars too loud, why?!!

There's good loud and bad loud.

I used to play with a guy who had a Fender Twin. He actually had a clean sound, but loud, and the tone was like f*ckin ice picks. Just a brutal piercing annoying...

Re: Was anyone in the audience for Fred Armisen's Drummer's Only comedy show?

Hahaha! That made me laugh.

I generally love Fred Armisen, I haven't seen this yet, just the trailers, looking forward to it. Comedy is about as subjective as it gets.

I don't really consider...

Re: Good Buddy Rich quote on practice

Found some funky stuff from him, never heard him playing stuff like this before!

This one sounds like a cop show from the 70s...or porn music.

Re: Good Buddy Rich quote on practice

Regarding him hating rock, I listened to an interview with him where he talks about how a drummer should be able to play anything (that sure as hell counts me out!), whether it's with a band like The...

Re: Good Buddy Rich quote on practice

Found the interview:

Re: Good Buddy Rich quote on practice

Ringo said the same thing from early on (not that he's a Buddy Rich, of course)...but he said he never practiced ever, only played with people. He also started relatively late, starting on thimble...

Re: Recording drums - Process issues and questions

I think it's pretty much customary not only different takes, but quantizing/fixing the drums...not to mention drum replacing or enhancing with samples.

Re: What's the worst drumming mistake you've heard on a professional recording?

Not sure if it's a mistake, seems like it could be...I wouldn't call it the worst...maybe the best! But the roll before the first chorus in The Beatle's Rain is very odd, comes down on the wrong...

Re: Pete Best - His Weaknesses as a Drummer?

True in some ways...

but it's all relative...Ringo was a better choice at the time, better drummer, better personality, better fit all the way around. Pete had his style but already was not...

I'm not entirely new, but I am new to actually trying to learn stuff...a bit of rudiments and technique etc. Drums are not my first instrument, I just like playing them! Come to think of it, I'm not...

Re: Example of double stroke roll in songs

Just to add a novice type question to this but......

I'm doing this song where I want to put in a very fast military type sound snare roll every once in awhile for a single beat of a bar. So the...

Re: Pete Best - His Weaknesses as a Drummer?

Yeah, George Martin should have replaced all of them...none of em were any good. Ringo was the best one really and he stinks compared to real drummers. John could barely play at all, George sounds...

Re: Pete Best - His Weaknesses as a Drummer?

I agree with the basic assessment that Ringo was simply more solid, could bring great energy, was more versatile, and swung. Knew what to do and when to do it.

If you listen to Pete's version of...

Re: The 10 Best Singing Drummers In Rock History (Article)

Not sure he's really a drummer...I think he sort of pieces the drums together...I suppose that counts.

funny, the idea of a singer playing drums versus a drummer singing...

I'll mention Nigel...

Re: Nigel Olsson

I think it's mainly the "concert toms"...no resonant head, miced from beneath...a lot of it is engineer Ken Scott (who did a vsti of this basic sound and said in retrospect it left him cold!) I...

Re: Why don't pop songs have real drums?

Well yes, absolutely!

But there are aspects that I have to acknowledge are kind of "stupid". Perhaps stupid is not the right word. I have made things far more difficult for myself. It would be far...

Re: Why don't pop songs have real drums?

I took up the drums for the very reason I hate fake drums, machines, sample replacement and all that. It's actually sort of stupid on my part I suppose.

But I do think it's a shame that drummers...

Re: Copyright Drums from former bandmate

People should always agree before a jam or note is played.
Not always a "cool" thing to do, which is probably why these disputes always happen.

I do think it is kind of lame that the...

Re: Beatles - Come Together

It was touched upon (as I had said, I originally thought it was, or could be, just one tom played dynamically).

I do think though, that if you listen to just the first hit by itself, and the last...
