Re: Wrapping your kit?

I asked the same questions many years ago. Ultimately, I just tried it and I have never noticed any major differences using various wraps or wood veneers. I should add if I heard any subtle...

Billy Ray has a double!

Billy Ray, you have a double on the other side of the pond. I had to look twice at this.

Re: Smaller thinner kicks with good sound- ideas?

The head is an Aquarian Force Ten. I just place some dots of silicone in spots around the circumference. Does the trick. Or Moon gel.

Re: Smaller thinner kicks with good sound- ideas?

If you are into making things you might try something like this. It's an 18" and produces quite a bit of volume if I want, and thump, depending on dampening. Couldn't be easier to carry around.

Re: Revisiting My Life in Music: The Earliest Music in My Life

My parents were big Mitch Miller fans. I heard those albums playing all the time. Lawrence Welk, too.

Then the singers, like Andy Williams, Nat King Cole, Mel Torme, and others.

I remember...

Re: Is Ringo a good drummer?

Wouldn't a definition of 'good drummer' be appropriate?

If nothing else he was a great entertainer. Caused me to run to the kitchen for the coffee cans and pencils when I was 9, watching Ed...

Re: Snare Drum made from Seamless Stainless Steel Pipe

Very nice looking drum, man. I love the finish.

I had a friend who made a stainless snare and he said it was the toughest build he ever did.

Re: What would be your drummer nickname?

That is cool. That is how I got the name Drums in his heart. A friend, heavily into Lakota Sioux culture, gave me the name. I never can remember how to say it in Lakota.

Re: What would be your drummer nickname?

Memories. I had the nickname Train back in the 70s because I blew one of those big chrome train whistles to finish out my solos in a piece called The Iron Horse.

Re: What experience do you have making your own drum kits?

LOL. So, what is rule 14 a.?

Re: No more jam sessions for me. I'm done

I read an interview with Carl Palmer where he stated he does not like improv or free-form jamming. He likes music with definite structure.

All I have done for the last three years is record in an...

Re: Gong-tastic!

I guess the influence of fusion and prog drummers from the 70s put the bug in me and I have had gongs in my set-ups ever since. Nothing like creative use of their presence, from big wallops to soft...

Re: What experience do you have making your own drum kits?

Being a diehard DIYer I have been making sets, large sets, since 1991. I have never looked back to buying company drums. Whether doing stains, dyes, and finishes or wraps, when it has been all said...

Re: Introducing - Nicolas Viccaro.

My first exposure to him some time ago with Gergo Borlai. Quite a firestorm on this.

Re: Drum suspension systems

In my experience I believe suspended toms rather than fixed mounted toms does make a difference in both sustain and increased low end resonance. I cannot say I have noticed significant differences in...

Re: New Pearl masters MCX = Horrible!

Re: Bearing Edges

Lots players define 'warm and round' by head choice and/or shell thickness.

Rule of thumb is fairly simple - more head to shell contact means a little less sustain from the head.

Where you...
