Re: 4-up, 2-down question

The only way to know is to try it out.

I actually own a bunch of the rack clamps from one of his kits. Not exactly sure if it's from this kit or another one.

Re: Is the drummer population aging?

Are you speaking specifically on this forum, or forums like it?

I think it may have to do with the progression of technology. Message boards like this one, came into play as a community builder...

Re: Has anyone started playing out after turning 50 years old?

My Mother didn't technically start after 50, she played when she was a kid, and continued to tinker around her whole life, but she didn't actually get behind the kit with a band and take it more...

Re: Why would one need an Endorsement Deal?

This isn't surprising at all. Companies keep an eye on their artists, and I've had a few occasions when a photo had surfaced with me using another brand. My companies picked up the phone or sent an...

Re: Taking charge of your posters

Over the years I've ended doing a number of graphic related work for groups I've been in. Posters, CD jackets, T-shirts, websites, even some of the official logo designs. But I also have a degree in...

Re: Why would one need an Endorsement Deal?

If the product in question is attached to some unwanted negative press or exposure, or an artist has a bad reputation.

Bill Cosby was a big Zildjian guy for many many years, I don't think they...

Re: Why would one need an Endorsement Deal?

If you have a signature product with a company you typically get a royalty on each unit sold. It's not an actual paycheck, just a small, and I mean SMALL percentage of the profits form said product. ...

Re: Working at a music store

I worked in a few music stores when I was younger. Both mom & pop shops, and the big chain location. I'll say this, the mom & pop stores are 1000x better. I really HATE the chains stores and working...

Re: The hidden life of the drummer :(

What I hate is that I frequently get tagged on social media in photos that you can't see me in. A cymbal or mic stand covering my face from that angle. Or just a shot of my elbow behind a singer or...

Re: Pros who play low-ish end or midrange kits?

Myself and a handful of other Yamaha artists frequently tour with Stage Customs. No other reason than they are rock solid, and sound fantastic.

Prior to getting my Live Custom, my main gig/tour...

Re: Problem with Drum Student

I've been digging for that mutual ground for months and can't seem to come up with it. Once at the start of a lesson I said "Hey, what's new?!?" and her reply was "What do you mean by that?"

Re: Anyone ever custom ordered a kit?

My current Yamaha Live Custom was a "custom job" in sorts.

I ordered the shell sizes and finished that I wanted, and then had them instal a tom mount on the 24" kick, as it doesn't come standard...

Re: WorldMax snare?

Problem with Drum Student

So, on the opposite side of the "teacher issue" discussion going on, I have a student problem.

In all my years teaching privet lessons (17 to be exact) I've never once come across this scenario. ...

Re: Rim shots...

Your sticks don't look that different from mine.

I hit hard, but use more of a whipping motion to pull sound out of the drum.
It's real relaxed, and I don't ever suffer from hand cramping or...

Re: Rim shots...
