Re: Drum Dial tuning

These are all fair points. I have one, rarely use it, but still consider it money well spent.

It is also a good training tool for the new drummer. I found I would get myself into trouble tuning by...

Re: Reality check!

I keep saying this. Buy drums for the hardware and finish you prefer, if your main use is the stage.

A bar we used to play in NYC mandated the use of their house kit. It was a decrepit Export,...

Re: This ever happen? Plus a 5 minute beat

I don't know about that, but I can fall almost completely asleep doing rudiments. As in, I have to catch myself before I topple off the throne.

Re: Names of the drums and cymbals - origins? etymology

They were originally mounted on a rail on the bass drum, so the cymbal "rode" the drum.

Re: "Nobody cares about the drummer, except for the Rush guy."

98.72% of people won't notice if the guitarist stops playing.

68.149% of statistics cited on the Internet are made up on the spot.

Re: Why do people treat their drums so badly?

Some people consider their instruments tools, some consider them family members. If you're a kid with the kit he can afford in stead of the one he wants, hustling in and out of bad load-outs with no...

Re: need some info/help from the Tama guys

Probably. Most multiply drums sound pretty similar. Heads and tuning will make way more difference than the wood involved.

Yes, arguably. The SCs were all made in Japan, built just the same as...

Re: double bass - weak leg is better than strong side

I go through periods when my weak side is better. I think my left is uneducated, where my right side has learned all kinds of things, maybe the muscle memory interferes with what I'm trying to pick...

Re: How many of you guys mic your kits at home?

If you play live, the acoustic sound of your kit will be somewhat alien, could be a distraction. I guess you could bring your mics and a mixer to feed yourself the miked sound. If you want to hear...

Re: Buying a drum set and beginner help please.

Electric drums are good news/bad news, like everything else.

Good: Low volume. You will be able to play much more, without needing a rehearsal facility.
As mentioned, they sound good without any...

Re: Double Bass Questions

It's a great idea, I would have recommended it if you hadn't brought it up yourself. Find a problem, isolate it, drill it, then work in the other limbs.

Re: Double Bass Questions

Your drum is not part of the problem, 22" works for lots of people. Make sure the drum is tuned to a consistent tension all the way around, and that the beaters are equally off-center. Most double...

Re: Necessity of heel-up when doing single strokes?

I may be wrong, but the fastest guys I know of use heel strokes/constant release. As for playing ankle-only heel up, I'm guessing there's a more relaxed range of motion from neutral to down than from...

Re: Necessity of heel-up when doing single strokes?

I wouldn't say it's a necessity, there's a place for everything. As you say, heel-up provides more power, due to the greater moving mass of the upper leg, and I find having more power available makes...

Re: Ludwig floor tom/snare

I saw a local band in Boston one time that had converted a tom like that. I don't think that one was a floor; it was probably a square rack tom.

Re: I've made a horrific mistake....

Just rehead the same tom a couple of times, then do the kit when you've zeroed in on what you like.

Re: Was Lars' double-bass on the track Dyers Eve a fraud?

I read they actually had somebody in the studio to catch the cymbal for him. I believe each fill is its own cut, as that was the part he had the most trouble with. And, yes, the DB part is heavily,...

Re: The "Ah Ha!" moment.

Not in its most recent configuration, and at the moment, its in a pile of gig bags while some larger reconfiguring occurs. I'll see if I have something somewhere.
