Re: Snare tuning question

They do love moongel. My daughters always poke at the gel I have on my floor tom. Then they think they should hit it with the stick. Whatever keeps them entertained I guess.

Re: Snare tuning question

Those are good heads and a month shouldn't have done much to them. Unless you tuned one side wildly uneven, damaging the head, you shouldn't have to replace. Try different tuning combos. reso...

Re: What do you think about Casey Cooper (COOP3RDRUMM3R)

Casey,

I thought you handled this very well. It's tough not to get over defensive and bite back. You kept it professional I thought. As a drummer in his 30s who is getting back into it, I envy...

Re: Pearl Sensitone Steel

I think I will keep looking as you guys suggest. A) it isn't really that I NEED it, just want it. B) I think I'd rather get an acrolite and as you suggest, they can be found on CL for pretty cheap...

Re: Help Identify this Ludwig Snare

I wish I could find a $500 snare drum. Hell, I wish I could find anything worth $500.

Pearl Sensitone Steel

Saw this on my local craigslist. I have a maple snare and I want my next one to either be an acrolite or a Pearl Sensitone. $50 seems like a steal to me assuming the condition is good. Am I right...

Re: Looking to buy my first drum set, need some help (also with soundproofing)

The only separate thing you'd need to buy is a bass pedal. That goes for an e-kit or the DW practice kit.

For an answer to your e-kit question, I would go to the Electric drums section on the...

Re: Looking to buy my first drum set, need some help (also with soundproofing)

If you are in an apartment building you may want to hold off on getting a real set until you know for sure this is something you want to do. Between the ages of 18 and about 32 I lived in...

Re: Nature vs Man in terms of groove & flow

Is "playing loosely/relaxed" refering to the grip on the sticks or the tenseness of one's arms when playing?

I have been working on just doing singles while trying to loosen up and let the sticks...

Re: Drums are consuming me

I like these kind of threads because I realize I'm not the only one struggling with the "balance" thing, and right now I'm only a hobbyist. I played as a teenager, life took me away from drums for...

Re: My bass drum technique. What can I improve? (VIDEO)

So it's been a while since I posted my first bass technique video for critiques. Here is another one showing my progress, I hope. I've been working hard on not burying the beater. I wasn't warmed...

Re: Tuning is going to kill me!

If you are just starting out, I would recommend tuning top and bottom the same. It helps simplify things. Figure out how to make that sound good, then start experimenting with other tuning...

Re: Tuning is going to kill me!

There is lots of info on the forum about tuning. Check out the Gear section under drums. There will be a lot of threads on tuning. You're going to get a LOT of advice on that here. Everyone has...

Re: Heel Up Question

I think the other point worth mentioning about this technique, which I am still trying to become proficient at, is that it requires a certain amount of spring tension for the foot to be at rest on...

Re: Rebound on my snare vs my practice pad - way off

I would agree the more time you can practice on the real kit and snare, the better.

Unfortunately, I fall into the category of people who don't have the luxury of playing my real kit very much. ...

Re: Practicing rudiments without a pad or metronome. Bad idea?

A lot of the free metronome apps also have a light that pulses on the screen and most show you a ball or marker landing on the quarter notes. So you could just lay your phone down so only you can...

Re: SNARE TUNING

Thanks Elvis. I'm sort of a hobbiest now with aspirations to gig. I'm getting back into it after about 15 years away from the kit. In other words, I play by myself so I notice every buzz, rattle,...
