Re: Those of you who have "sound proofed" a room for your drums...

I've had a room within a room built using fire rated gyprock and rock wool insulation.

I'm worried that you will have to go to great lengths and expense if your condo is still pretty small and/or...

Re: RANT: Disappointed in Sonor

But you took responsibility for it, that's refreshing.

I forgive you.

Re: Practice pad drum set suggestions

Maybe some e - kit bits and pieces are a good approach. I only know of the dw tree and I think I remember Thomas Lang promoting some kinda pad kit that included it's own riser.

Re: Leave Me Alone Please

Always gotta expect that kind of attention if you go into a crowded store.. Just grin and hear it.. If you're worth watching then it's only a compliment.

Re: Has anybody learned "Bleed" by Meshuggah?

I pretty much learned it for that competition when the song was first released but I left it late to record and had probs setting up protools. I remember the best entrant played it perfect but some...

Re: Tama Starclassics!

Play one kick and use the other as a fish tank. Or maybe a toy box.

Problem solved.

Re: Mapex Armoury

Another Saturn player here.. Awesome drums and beautiful too. Only thing is they're heavy to carry and pretty loud if you are mindful of upsetting neighbours.

Why do you favour the older...

Re: Negative Progress / Quitting

Books are boring, I get that. I've been playing for ages and it's only now I'm getting into reading because I've already got my fingers in the other pies. Books are actually great, that's where you...

Re: Sonor S-Class Pro

I think the shells are from china but that's not a bad thing. They will sound good. I'm asking you if you really want a 10+ year old kit with gear you won't use for $2000. There are heaps of great...

You need time to get familiar, maybe you're not spending enough time with each setup and you're frustrated that nothing feels like home.

Sometimes the small ego's create problems too.

Re: Is Dennis Chambers ill?

Can't tell you how many times I've watched 'in the pocket' (probably hundreds of times) but I love Dennis and he's one of the best out there.

Get well soon Dennis.

Re: Sonor S-Class Pro

It's the other way around.. The birch/maple combo shells were made in Germany, then later were made in china. They improved the hardware in the 2nd series. The pedals that came with my series 1 kit...

Re: No Drums For 2-3 Weeks :(

That sucks, real sorry to hear.

I think I'd still practice, just not using that hand.. You might learn new things.

Re: Do you think it's time for your favorite drummer to retire?

I can't think of one but I wouldn't feel nice naming them.

Everyone would reach a stage where their skills start going downhill. Who can tell them to stop playing? Only some anonymous jerk on a...

A happy ending. 20x13 stage custom (took 4 inches off from the batter side). The tom mount won't go through the hole anymore, need to address that (maybe take it back or just file it down a bit) but...

Re: Considering a new kit

Sakae (Japanese drum factory) gave Yamaha the boot so Yamaha went 100% china.

Those rock sizes are not so common, it's mostly fusion sizes these days.
