Re: SNARE TUNING

That's nuts, I never would have thought to do that. They would do a great job on it for sure. I would have tried to do it myself with a spray can and screwed it up.

But I wonder if putting a...

Re: SNARE TUNING

I want to finish the inside of my catalina club snare. I have some tung oil, but I'm hesitant because I've never done it before. Anyone know what difference it would make? Would it sound better with...

Re: Gretsch Catalina Club Jazz Owners

Re: Gretsch Catalina Club tuning

Yeah, same here. I got the everything else to tune up pretty well. I put aquarian modern vintage medium heads on all the batter heads and I'm going to out the same heads but thin on the resos. The...

Re: Recommendation for Beginner

If they were similar in price, I would choose a high end used set over a low end new set. you get what you pay for with cheap sets, but if you can find a good set used that has been taken decent...

Re: Affordable jazz drum set

I was actually really surprised with the stock heads on the catalina jazz set. The resonant was coated and the batter was clear. both had a ring of the same plastic head material about 2 or 3...

Re: Affordable jazz drum set

I play a Catalina set. Everyone hates the snare and I don't really get why. It just needs a little love. I put an Aquarian modern vintage head on it and tuned it pretty high. It's not a great...

Re: Hip Hop Kit Questions

I would look for a jungle set. Sonor makes a good one (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M8Z0nZUZSuA) and theyre pretty cheap for how good they sound. for hip hop i tend to like smaller sizes for drums...

Re: Learning double stroke roll

It took me forever and I still kind of suck at it. I don't know if this is true for anyone else but if you can play clean double strokes with brushes, you can play clean(er) double strokes with...

Re: Learning double stroke roll

open rolls (double strokes) are pretty easy once you get the hang of them and have nothing to do with being young or old. one thing i wished i did for mine early on is to accent the second stroke (rR...

Re: Should i start learning some serious rudiments?

Rudiments are good to know. I don't think I've ever used a flam mill or a seventeen stroke roll during a song or anything, but I know what they are and what they would sound like if I did.
And I...

Re: Ringo Starr

I guess I should re-word that. No style of music is "better" than any other style. Jazz is more geared towards musicians, and rock more towards listeners in most cases. There are absolutely...

Re: Ringo Starr

Ringo created the standard for a new style of music. However, rock is the first style most drummers learn because it is usually pretty simple. With a few exceptions, most "classic rock" is in 4/4...

Re: Gretsch Catalina Club Jazz Bass Drum

I got this set a few months ago and the bass drum is the best sounding drum in the set. It has a really nice, warm tone when you hit it soft and let the beater rebound for jazz, and a nice full...

Re: Best exorcises for speed?

buy a pair of the biggest, heaviest drumsticks you can find, or tape three pairs together, and go through some rudiments on a pillow or something that doesn't let the stick bounce. I wouldn't make...

Snare Drum (warped?)

I recently bought a Gretsch Catalina Club Jazz set, and so far I really like it, especially for how cheap it was. But when I went to tune the snare, I took off the bottom head and put it on a table...

Re: Gretsch Catalina Club jazz kit?

This set seems perfect for a small jazz trio type of thing, but how would it do with a few more? I play in a quintet with trumpet, alto, piano, and bass. The piano and bass are both electric and we...
