Re: Tour buy in: yes or no?

When I used to tour, we used to use an RV. We were young, and poor, and gas was under a buck a gallon. Do bands still do this?

Re: Tinnitus (ear ringing)

I use landscaping over-ear protection when rehearsing so that I can fit my iPhone's ear-buds underneath (metronome or playing chase). Otherwise, I use the cheap in-ear or paper towel variety. I...

Re: Grip Change Imposed UGH

That makes sense I suppose. My instructor basically taught me that there's German, French, and an entire world in between them. The grip you use for a stroke is entirely dependent on the sound you...

Re: Grip Change Imposed UGH

I'm a little bit confused. Your post reads as if your first teacher made you use german grip exclusively, and that your new teacher is making you use american grip exclusively. Is this correct?

Re: Ludwig purchasing rant.

Ultimately, people that know what they want will buy what they want online. People that don't know what they want will go to a showroom.

Re: Ludwig purchasing rant.

I'm in a rough position philosophically, as I've spent the past two decades as a technologist in e-commerce working against the institution which you are defending. It's good to know we agree on the...

Re: Ludwig purchasing rant.

Indeed. Dealer or not, my expectation is to sit down at my computer, click on the stuff I want, have it delivered in 4 days.

On the flip side, anyone under the age of 10 will say "Why can't I...

Re: Ludwig purchasing rant.

While it's smart for the company, it's certainly not good for the consumer.



Yes, which is why I order from Mercedes and Tesla directly, and will never own another GM automobile in my lifetime....

There's probably better explanations out there, but basically, reverse phase sounds cancel each other out. It's what active...

mydrumlife review?

With my kid now in kindergarden, I find myself having a free slot to play drums (7:30AM-~9AM). I'm looking for something that's pseudo instructional, inspirational, and will give me a good morning...

Re: Woofer as a BD mic

A track, played by itself, will sound the same regardless of polarity. The difference is apparent when the track is played with another track, as the overlapping frequencies will cancel each other...

Re: Do my drums grow with me?

Your setup will change as your body changes, and as your grip changes.

During these times where you find the need to transition, it's good to pay careful attention to your posture, so that you...

Re: Converting programmed drum parts to acoustic kit

When an artist or band hands you a track with a programmed drum part, do not try to mimic it. Simply listen to the song and invent your own drum part that captures the spirit of what they're going...

Re: Opinions wanted on 2 Gretsch Renown deals

Towards the end of the blowout, sites would continue to list the NC at $999, but had none in stock and wouldn't be able to get more. You're cash would be tied up until you got a refund. If you see a...

Re: Opinions wanted on 2 Gretsch Renown deals

The biggest change has been from the RN to then RN1. The tom mounting suspension system has changed. The shells are no different, though it does not appear that there are new pure wood variants...

Looks like you might be compressing your ulnar nerve.. I think that Jai Es does a bunch of drum related videos on it, and it's one of the causes of the "My right hand falls asleep" posts that you...

Re: Did Ringo Scream About Blisters On His Fingers???

We think of stereo in terms of right / left. While Albums of that era are often mixed as a two channel, think of it as a mono track, and not as a "Right and Left" track. Headphones were not as...

Re: Won Used Ludwig Classics off ebay

Looks like a tambourine to me ;-)

I think you're right. The e-bay auction calls it a "Storage Throne".. I may need to pick up one for my posterior if the OP finds it is comfortable.

Re: I've got the "looper" blues

Take a look (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rh3PLgT7v0I). On a typical ditto, first click begins recording. Second click stops recording and begins playback. Holding down the button clears the...
