Re: Overwhelmed drumming?

Try moving the rudiments around the kit, they'll sound a little more musical that way and get you used to moving around the toms.

Start with the paradiddle RLRR LRLL, keep the L's on the snare...

Re: I'm going deaf!! Some headphone advice please

I'd try some IEMs with decent tips and see if that helps at all, I use a pair of MEE Audio M6 Pro IEMs with Comply Large foam tips and they work great. I tried the tips that came with them and my ear...

They are going to give you 60% of what they are going to list it for, they base their price on what the same kit has sold for previously used by other Guitar Center stores or from eBay or Reverb...

Re: Drum education technology demand survey

Re: Creating interesting and unique drum parts to originals?

Don't go out of your way to play something complex if it's not necessary for the song, giving specific details really is hard without hearing the music.

I would say pay attention to the accents...

Re: Beginner - easy songs are freaking hard!

With my new students I have them play Hoobastank's The Reason over and over and over again, not because it's a fantastic song but because it's the same beat for 4 minutes!

Re: Hearing.

I use a pair of cheap IEMs that I off Amazon (MEE audio M6 PRO) with Comply large foam tips to play along to music/metronome off my phone and I have no issues with hearing the music over my drums.

Re: Nobody wants to sell me a drum set

Re: Recording Studio- Your drums or Their's??

Use their drums.
1. Less hassle. You won't have to worry about tearing down, loading out, loading in, setting up, tearing down, loading out, loading in and setting back up!

Re: Anyone play 12-16-24 ?

I currently play 12/16/24 but I've played 13/16/24 and 14/18/24 and I prefer 12/16/24, there's a big enough size difference between the rack tom and the floor tom so I can tune it to a mid tension or...

Re: Cut the carpet?

I wouldn't cut the carpet because then it's going to start fraying and make a mess in your car. I setup my kit with my bass drum spurs maybe 1/2 an inch back from the edge of the carpet and I've...

Re: 4 Piece vs 5 Piece?

The only way I'd go with a 5 piece is if it was 1 up 2 down or if the toms were 12/13/16 or larger, I'd never use a 10" tom for anything other than a dust collector in the corner of my practice...

Re: How generous are you when supplying a kit?

I wouldn't bring anything extra just in case they might need or want to use it, if they need more than two toms to pull off their set then they need to bring their own kit! In a shared kit situation...

Re: What do you think about small drum setups ?
