Re: Am I a charlot all the way around?

I have a Pearl Vision kit that I would rather tour with over my Black panther kit because it's easier to setup, and it sounds good. There's nothing wrong with mid level and entry level drums as long...

Re: Things guitarist tell drummers to do...

"Okay, so for this next part we're going to drop by 30 bpm and change the time signature for 4 bars, then go back to the original beat. No problem right?"

Re: 2 rack toms vs 2 floor toms

1 up and 2 down, I like having my 12" tom closer the middle of my kick and also having my ride over my 14" floor tom. I have a 10" tom that I don't use which would normally mount to the left of the...

Re: Ghost notes and shell material (snare)

FWIW, Metal shell snares seem to be more responsive to ghost notes IMO.

My Chad Smith signature snare from Pearl is probably too sensitive? I have an Evans hazy 300 snare side, Evans ST batter,...

Re: Guitar Center and DW

You should drive down to the factory and let them know how poorly their products are labeled at the local Guitar Center.

Re: Ideal 2 Floor Tom Sizes?

If I could I would do 15" and 16" floor toms for the reason that 14" can't tune low enough. I love the bass from a 16" and it's probably seen more use than my 14" tom. Though I haven't tried a 15"...

Re: What's your latest purchase?

I just picked up an 8" AAX air splash to replace the one that I broke last year. I bought a 12" AAX splash to replace it but I found that it didn't replace the sound of the Air splash. So between my...

Re: Tom Sizes

8" 10" 16" is an odd setup indeed.

I have a 10" 12" 14" 16" kit and the 10" sits in the corner of my jam room because I simply didn't use it as much because it's too high once tuned properly and...

Re: All the things that go into drumming

Ignorant on his part... I'm sure he'd notice if you played through the songs with no dynamics, which are by far the hardest part.

If all he cares about is timing why doesn't he get a drum machine?

Re: Why bother with books?

Yes, I need to hear the pattern played which is why I watch drum videos to learn somethings on the kit. It would honestly be great if it was rock band/synthesia style with the notes rolling towards...

Re: Why bother with books?

I can't see the point of drum books either... I've always had a lot of trouble reading music (not from lack of trying) and as a result a drum book mind as well be gibberish to me. My mind struggles...

Re: Snare Rim Shot Issue

In this case offset means that the centre of the snare does not line up with the centre of the stand. It is off to the side or offset from the centre axis of the stand.

This doesn't happen to...

Re: Snare Rim Shot Issue

Doesn't matter how hard of a hitter you are or what feet you put on the snare stand the stand will walk a tiny bit everytime you hit the snare when it's offset. I noticed my snare will walk...

Re: What's your latest purchase?

Well I pulled the trigger and got a set of Speed Cobras! I've had a speed cobra single pedal that I bought for $100s (barely used) so I'm fairly familiar with how these pedals will feel. There's so...

Re: What's your latest purchase?

Re: DW drums being "Overpriced"

I think DW drums are accurately priced for what you're getting. Custom instrument work is never cheap and even if you don't custom order there's a TON of work that goes into making drums. Once you...

Re: Where is the "best kit" thread :)

Do you want a punchy sound? Do you want something for a Jam space or something for playing live or just something for practicing at home?

Do you play metal, Jazz, rock, blues, country etc?

Do...

Re: Why the hate? (Lars Ulrich)

I'm not comparing them from a complexity or method stand point. I was being critical of how much they improved over the course of three albums. While I hear Lars improving a bit over those first...

Re: Why the hate? (Lars Ulrich)

I started listening to Metallica and Avenged Sevenfold at the same time during highschool and Lars sounded very bland compared to the Rev, so from the start I wasn't very impressed. I had bought City...

Re: Buddy Rich Playing Matched Grip!

If you look at your arm and stick as a mechanical lever, you'll notice that when you hold the stick with traditional grip you're losing several inches of length as well as hitting further off axis....
