Re: Michael Beinhorn fires drummers.

At the end of the day its called the music business. While the musicians may be in it for artistic reasons the record companies are in it to make money. Period.

Re: What kills your buzz?

People showing up to practice unprepared and having a "Meh" attitude. "Did you even listen to the new song were are supposed to play?"

Not sure if your travels take you through Memphis TN but if I were driving through I'd stop in at the Memphis Drum Shop.

Re: I need to make my room and my drum set sound proof!


If you have neighbors six feet across the hall it will be virtually impossible to contain the sound to an acceptable level with an acoustic drum kit.

The only hope is to throw piles of...

Re: Where can I get a snare weight?

I hire a bikini model to stand next to my snare during gigs and lightly touch my snare batter head with her index finger. A bit pricey but sounds great and looks even better.

Re: Mixer advice for live playing with click

Not a direct answer to your request but any backing tracks I have used has the click embedded in them. Is your click separate from the backing track? If so, how do they stay in synch?

Re: whining snare. please help

Typically the reso head should be very tight - tighter or the same tension at least as the batter head. Try experimenting with tension combinations to see if you can eliminate the "whine". You may...

Re: The virtues of gigging - or otherwise

+1 - I can relate to all of MrInsanePolak's comments. You're the first one there (setting up) and the last to leave (tearing down). It's fun for a while but it does get old.

Here is something you may find interesting...or not. A video of how a drum sounds based on where it's played. Not a surprise but kind of cool. Check it out here (http://www.wimp.com/drumsounds/)....
