Re: Tuning with those big round bearing edges

I typically tune my reso's on my old 68' Super Classics ~ a major 3rd above the batter. Does that seem about right?

Re: Difficult band members

I won't be in a band with someone I don't like. I commit to guys because we're like minded and jam well together.

Otherwise it's just an ensemble I guess.

Re: But What To Wear?

Unless you're playing jazz in ritzy venues or it's required by the gig, lose the suit/tux.

Re: But What To Wear?

You can seriously never go wrong with some slim-ish fitting dark jeans, a good fitting v-neck, some slick shoes, and some nice sunglasses (ray bans or something). Works inside or outside.

If it's...

Re: Trying to track down Gretsch New Classics

He found some!

Apparently he was at his wit's end and typed "how do I find Gretsch New Classics" into google and found what he was looking for.

I'm curious to hear it. I love the idea of...

Re: Trying to track down Gretsch New Classics

Sorry I forgot to mention that we checked that one too.

Talked to my manager today though and found out that he has a 16x16 New Classic tom that he picked up a couple years back that he's willing...

Trying to track down Gretsch New Classics

My keyboard player (also a killer drummer) is trying to hunt down a Gretsch New Classic kit. They've been discontinued though.

He wants 10" 12" 14" toms, a 6.5x14 snare, a 20" Bass drum, and...

Little Kits

Looking to snag a little Breakbeat/Safari kit here in the near future. It's my understanding that a few other companies aside from Sonor and Ludwig have some sort of offering of cute lil' compact...

Re: How Does Your Band Set Up on Stage?

I really dig the look of having the drummer up front and off to the side, angled towards the audience (like Mutemath).

A couple of local bands here do it, and I think that it's a killer stage...

Re: Can somebody explain Tame Impala's "Elephant" ending drum fill?

I tried mapping it out. Honestly, for being a drummer, my rhythmic dictation is pretty week. It seems like he starts off the fill on the "2" of the measure and switches between sextuplets and little...

I still can't seem to get this down. I'd love if someone could give me a hand with it.

Re: How to politely and professionally quit

I'd say you should probably fake your death. You might need to wear a mask in your other band, but that's trendy (I think) anyways.

Re: Can you turn an "intermediate" kit into a "pro" kit?

Yes you can just throw some super sick stickers on the bass drum head.

Re: Is live music dead?

I live in Boise, Idaho. All of the good bands that I know get paid, and the ones aren't good usually end up with gigs on Tuesday afternoons.

Right now it seems like the majority of the music...

Re: Over exuberance - a time & a place?

I just dig that we have someone named "Keep it Simple" and "No Talent" talking about over exuberance.

Re: Poogie Bell

Is that just a champagne sparkle?

I know it's totally a matter of preference but I can't believe some people don't dig sparkle wraps.

Re: Going to jams and getting my ass musically kicked is a good thing.

There's nothing better (and no worse feeling) than coming home from a jam that kick your ass. It can sometimes be demoralizing.

For me though, I just plain old don't know what I need to work on...

Re: Rock albums with modern production and a great vintage drum sound

+1 for Tame Impala. Those guys have a very great taste in vintage gear all around. It takes a while to dig the sound because of the effects that they use, but after a little listening, their...

Re: What's your story about how you started drumming?

I played piano for a few years (early grade school) and would throw tantrums trying to get out of practicing it.

6th grade rolled around and if you had experience on another instrument you could...

Typically there's a lul on some days where a guitar or accessories guy is covering the drum department. Drum guy has to go get lunch after all. They do their best.

Re: Left handed cajon?

You just need to track down some left-handed snare wires.
