Re: Tune Bot - Worthwhile or Not?

I use the tune bot every time I play. Some times just to check the snare and weekly to touch up the entire kit.

For snares that are 6.5 and deeper I usually run around 260 top and 360 - 380...

Re: How do I tell my friend that his expensive custom handmade snare is shit?

If he is really a friend he should be open to your suggestions. If your friendship hinges on the sound of a drum he isn't much of a friend.

Re: Bass drum mic picking up Toms

I've noticed that too with certain tom/bass drum tunings. When I hit my kick the toms would resonate. Kinda like snare buzz. That might be what's happening and the overheads are picking it up.

Re: What's your latest purchase?

My old DW air lift tractor seat throne became very uncomfortable after 15 years of use. I ordered another DW round top air lift and that thing was sturdy as a rock. It felt like one too!!! After...

Re: Good news & mini session report.

Glad it went well, That studio looks great! Looks like a comfortable room. Some studios can be a little sterile, but that looks like a great place to let the creative juices flow.

Don't know if the drummer is playing 8's on the kick or is keeping time with his foot like some do on the hat pedal. Stick shots on the and of 1 & 2 in...

Re: THe Conway Slingerlands have been Rescued

First I wish Slingerland guy luck with selling his inventory. Great find.

That said, you have failed marketing 101 miserably. You didn't post and contact info or link the e bay store, Others have...

Re: Moaning' Jazz ride

The right hand looks good. Nice and relaxed. The left hand looks like your pitching the stick between the index finger and the thumb. Your other fingers don't seem to be in contact with the stick....

Re: How to set up your drums

I think a lot of guys on here who would benefit from this article.

1. Hi hat too far to the rear. Not in line with the bass drum pedal causing the body to twist to the left.

2. Snare drum way...

Re: Moaning' Jazz ride

There are some basic fundamentals working against you. You don't have a fulcrum. You're holding the sticks to far back and that makes them front heavy. Not the best grip for rebound. There should be...

Re: Proportional tom sizes?

Do you plan on using claws on the hoops and a long tension rod connecting the top and bottom hoops?

Re: Rimshots on die cast hoops

I was into die cast hoops on snares for a while but use TF these days. I still have a couple snares with DC and agree with Merlin that it takes a little time to adjust to the angle to land consistent...

Re: The sound behind vs. the sound out front - big differences for you?

I agree with this, Drums will usually sound lower pitched out front. The deader the room the higher the tuning.

Just about every note I play runs through my recording gear. I don't always record...

Re: The right tools for the job.

'I dunno,

If you can lay down a solid groove it doesn't matter if you're playing snare, kick, and hats, or a 20 piece kit, you can either lay it down or you can't.

Re: Worst expensive snare you've ever owned?

Yeah, I had replaced the batter on that drum and was tuning it up. I reached that point and thought this is kinda cool. Clangy and trashy. Did a quick take, didn't mix the track, and burned a CD so I...
