Re: 3 stroke ruff notation in The Drummer's Complete Vocabulary As Taught by Alan Dawson

The two sixteenth notes are "grace notes". They are played, but not factored into the accounting of the measure. Play the measure as you normally would (two quarter notes), then add in the two grace...

Re: Yamaha Custom Absolutes... what's it worth now?

Agree with previous posters. Not a collectors item, but a great kit. I've got a 7pc MCAN in blue sparkle fade that I've played for about 8 years.

Not sure what you would end up getting for the...

Re: Gretsch Brooklyn 18x14/18x16 bass drums

Well, you could buy the kit without a tom mount and install a rail mount (there are a couple nice ones on the market right now). It wouldn't be hard at all and might still accomplish that clean look...

Re: Gretsch Brooklyn 18x14/18x16 bass drums

I like the "idea" of an undrilled BD, but in practice I always choose drilled. I love the ability to just bring a single tom arm and a very lightweight cymbal stand instead of a more mount-worthy...

Re: Yes, beginner drummers---reading music is crucial --- and it is not that hard to learn...

This is a literacy discussion! Someone can be a wonderful drummer without reading music in much the same way a functionally illiterate person could technically create great poetry. It can be done......

Re: Problem with Gretsch Renown

Any drum over 16" requires a 2 piece wrap. They seam are always placed at the bottom of the drum, so you won't see them when set up. It's possible that some companies produced their own wraps, but...

Re: Yamaha MCAN issue

I've got a MCAN and a BCA. First, I think the nouveau lugs are totally fine on a snare. i actually have two metal snares (brass and copper) that have those lugs as well. I've never felt that they...

Re: 7x8" or 14x16" add on tom?

a 14x16 floor tom is an exceptionally flexible and fun drum to play. I have a 7x8 on my maple custom... it sits on the shelf except when I want to play rockstar for a day.

Re: Drum layoff due to cracked hands

Eucerin. Branded as Aquafor sometimes. Works on kids butts.... and drummers hands!

Re: "Twangy" Overtones and the importance of reso heads.
