Re: Sonor Players Kit from Sam Ash

Re: Thought on Sabian B8 Pro Aero Crash

I'm with you. I actually think the B8 Pro Aero Crash sounds a heck of a lot better than the AAX version. I would like to get a 20" version like you too. If you ever come across the SKU # they give...

Re: Todd Sucherman here!

Todd, your studio/live sound, coupled with your gear breakdown in your DVDs, has persuaded me to plunk down some coin for an Audix DP5a mic pack.. I look forward to getting it in a few days!

Re: My day with Dave Weckl (large photo warning)

I really like Dave, and he too is my Top 5 drumming/music inspirations ever.

I get Weckl News/updates to my email every so often and saw his current tour lineup for the drumming intensives.....

The only snare I ever sold was my 14x5.5 Mapex Saturn walnut/maple snare.. it came with the 6-pc kit I bought new a few years ago and I never really like the response out of it. A beautiful looking...

Re: So it's my turn to have a band quandry..

I've thought about moving away to the other coast, or Nashville, or "hotter" music scenes but with certain obligations in my life not to mention a really nice run so far with Band C, I'll stick it...

Re: How to get MORE low end in drum practice room...

I'm not a sound expert but I know exactly your plight, I love more low end and I've noticed some rooms and places are more accomodating. From past things I've read:

Re: So it's my turn to have a band quandry..

Thanks marko. Yea, I can't complain too hard in the same regarding money in/out.. I haven't had to help front many 'band expenditures' out of pocket except my own gas/tolls/drink money. We have the...

Thanks guys.

I see your metaphor there Zephyr ;-) I love playing golf but the difference is I have no intentions of being a golf pro. But I get it.

Thanks everyone. We had band practice...

Re: So it's my turn to have a band quandry..

Thanks Aeolian for the insights.

The old saying "with age comes wisdom" could be true in my situation - definitely in my 20's I'd have a more lackadaisical approach in this matter but now that I...

Re: So it's my turn to have a band quandry..

Wow, that is a long time! I take it your band is not your main source of living/income? Did you ever want it to be? Do you think it's too late for a "big break" (without knowing your age)?



I...

Re: So it's my turn to have a band quandry..

Yea, this is what I feel in my heart too. Playing covers in front of 75+ people every night is certainly awesome but 750+ with MY own music is even more awesome an accomplishment. On the flip...

Re: Gavin Harrison here!

Hey Gavin - thanks always for posting your gear specifics.

I really like the idea of that "puzzle piece" flooring - I have that in my garage too, interesting use as a drum "carpet" though! I...

Re: For the gigging drummers, what is your last song?

Typically either Closing Time or My Own Worst Enemy. Although the other night, we had a few couples left in the venue and played Wonderful Tonight for them.
