Re: Rock Gigs Not Very Rock Anymore?

I know what you mean! When I lived in DC I would see my favorite local emocore band, Velvet at the Black Cat every chance I got. Think Sunny Day and Get Up Kids, and less Panic At The Disco and guy...

Re: Playing Someone Else's Kit

The highest cymbals I ever saw was an eighties clip from Nik Kershaw. The percussionist in the video had too high chinas set up on either side of him. They were so high just the tip of his sticks...

Re: Playing Someone Else's Kit

I always use my own throne. I've sat on too many wobbly high thrones. How do guy sit that high on a tipping seat and play well? jeesh! Plus I always bring my own snare and cymbals. I don't always use...

Re: Creating A Logo

I like this thread! As a graphic design major who has designed many a logo for a band I was in, I agree with what you guys said. except for Cap't Crunch. Makes me hungry though!

Re: Tricks for faster set up

Funny you should ask that, Larry.. I can use the cart to get me to the door and then I have to unload it all and carry piece by piece... yup. One of two stairs is okay. A whole flight, nuh-uh!

Re: Tricks for faster set up

+1 on the Rock N Roller cart! I've had mine for years and it is the best purchase i've ever made for drums. (Other than the drums themselves of course!) It extends the exact length of my hardware...

Re: The worst gig of my life

Yah, I don't understand when someone shares his kit, but is totally ignorant to the fact that he has the weirdest setup, bad tuning, and everything is horribly taken care of. He gleefully sets it up...

Re: S****y albums done by great bands..

I agree with you. As does George Martin. As a huge Beatlemaniac I think the white album could have been a great single album. I like most of the songs but some seem like throwaways, as if everyone's ...

Re: Making the best out of a near disaster

I'm shocked I have never really left anything at home I couldn't get. The one time I left my throne, my guitarist brother hadn't left yet with his full rig in his car and brought it for me after I...

The only thing I don't like about famous drummers brand hopping is the hype. The youtube videos and drum magazine ads where the drummer says "these are the best drums I've ever played!" "Smoothest...

Re: Sonor-king of the micro kits?

I bought my set of Tama Silverstars in a bop configuration just for playing open mics in small spaces. I play with a lot of acoustic singer songwriters so the small sizes work for me. 12" 14" toms, a...

Re: Rant: Who's in charge at Gibraltar??

I think it's funny that if I presented this topic to any one of my musician friends they would reply "Isn't the clutch that came with the hi-hat good enough? It just holds up the top cymbal right?"...

Re: Rant: Who's in charge at Gibraltar??

I like the idea of Gibraltar being a hardware only company and offering all the types of mounts and clamps that no one else does. I do think they make their traditional pedals great and functional,...

For me, i'm a seasoned open mic nite vet. I can feel out the part to play by what rhythm is being played, but the arrangements can get me, if there are tempo changes and starts and stops in weird...

Re: Another Band Drama Thread

I think it has to do with tube amps. I play guitar myself in addition to drums. Amps tubes on a stack (the amp head) really open up at ear splitting volume. That's the harsh truth. But thanks to...

Re: A Possible Gig with Acoustic Guitars - A Query

I play open mics twice a week. I'm always playing to acoustic guitars. I use smaller drums, in a jazz/bop configuration. 12" 14" 18" bass with 14" snare. But I tune them deeper than a jazzer would. I...
