Re: Another "first audition" thread

Take your snare, pedal, cymbals etc, because you don't have to use them. And really it's a win/win. If the stuff they offer is pretty crap you can always grab yours and say that that is how you are...

Re: About getting paid

I see where you are coming from and I'll admit I have thought about this too. I guess that I have a lot of confidence in my work and there never has been a time in my experience where a drum part to...

Re: About getting paid

The thing I do when asked to do session work is to charge by the song. What this does is allow for a necessarily good product that you want to do efficiently and quickly. This also allows for the...

Re: Am I a freak for not liking virgin bass drums?

Re: Single Hand Drumming

A few years ago I broke my wrist rollerblading. (Don't laugh, I was riding the vert ramp at a skate park. I'm usually pretty good at it, but just had a screwy fall.) I was in a fairly popular...

Re: How to handle this situation

I notice that you have listed yourself as a Professional Drummer. Half your luck.

I am always clear with the bands that I work with right up front what my fee is. I do not leave my house for...

Re: Recording Customs?

Interesting. Thanks for the replies all. No, I'm not really interested in buying a kit, I was just interested to hear everyone's thoughts.
The kit was definitely a lacquer, probably the Cherrywood...

Re: I think I'm losing it

Not to preach and all, but if it's the gut speaking then I recommend apple cider vinegar. It has done wonders for me. Changed my life really. I had tennis elbow and other inflammations and a...

Re: Recording Customs?

Yes and yes! The drums I played were almost identical to the Recording Customs shown, except they were maroon lacquered and scratched to hell. Identical hardware etc. I am 99% positive that they...

Re: Recording Customs?

Yeah, you pretty much described the badges...sorta goldish with black print. The interiors were not stained, but I couldn't tell if they were lacquered or not. This kit struck me a pretty old...say...

Recording Customs?

Howdy all,
I just played a festival type show with the backline provided. The kit I played was a Yamaha 10,12,16,20 that was old and sorta beat up. It was a maroon lacquer with what appeared to be...

Re: Old timey drums from Sears

Thanks fellas,

There is no Sears in Oz but there are quite a few low priced Pearl/Star stencil kits around. Might just look into it.

Cheers!

Old timey drums from Sears

I've got a friend who has been collecting Harmony guitars for a while now. He's got a couple of different guitars and a bass. Boy do they sound amazing. My understanding is that they were offered...

Re: Negotiating more money for a gig.

My experience with asking for more money comes mainly from runs on the board. If we've played a venue say 5 or 6 times and we feel that,( or have always felt) the money wasn't enough then we would...

Re: Which Blues drum set for an advanced beginner?

Obelix, you may want to consider that with a snare drum you have a myriad of head choices and loads of tuning choices at your disposal. Sure it's perhaps the drum you will be using the most but you...

Re: John Good Interview

I agree that DW has been a huge contributer to the art of making ply drum shells, but they need to overcome the hardware IMO. I would much rather purchase their Design Series than anything else...

Re: Which Blues drum set for an advanced beginner?

I'd love to fly with you here mate, but not in Australia. Everything here is twice the price...full stop...even used. And the bloke is looking for cymbals too. You might get iconic Gretsch...

Re: Which Blues drum set for an advanced beginner?

That's what I mean. Pick what you like, because you can put your hands and ears to it. In my experience these guys will give you a bit to integrate your sound. That is if you purchase a cymbal...

Re: Which Blues drum set for an advanced beginner?

If it were me in your position I'd think about spending 500 to 800 on a kit and the rest on cymbals. Gumtree is probably your best bet for the kit. There's a few on there in the Perth area that...

Re: Am I the only one here that hated the Kick Port?

I guess I like the KickPort for the reason that I can hear it better in the driver's seat. I did an experiment with and without and from the front , (3 meters away/ 10 feet), I didn't notice much...
