Re: Decided to try this new look!

Good idea, but it depends on how deep the groove needs to be. Take the top hoop off, slip in the leg from the top and see how deep the grooves would need to be.

Hey wait a minute, what about...

Re: Dented Shell

Those two pictures are very bad pictures. Itís too hard to make a proper evaluation using the two photos supplied. Take better pictures. Take some pictures from further away. In better light. ...

Re: So....how long should it take to learn....

Yeah I kind of thought that might be the case. But when I saw the video of him playing the song with the cow bell live with no left arm I decided Iíd mention it. Check it out on YouTube. Thanks...

Re: Buying old COB snare drums, what to look for?

When you inspect a drum, take off both heads. Take a new head and check shell roundness.
This will also check the lug threads as you remove each tension rod. And check the bearing edges.
And...

Watching Def Leppard play it live shows the drummer playing cow bell, bass drum and snare. (with no left arm I might add)

Re: Buying old COB snare drums, what to look for?

I've had good luck with Slingerland Chrome over brass. Make sure it's not a late 70's chrome over steel Slingerland.

Obviously playing and inspecting it before you buy would be best. You can...

Re: More on this Gasket Business

Exactly. And that is why if you want your drums to project, you use 10mil thin heads and tune them high.

Re: So....how long should it take to learn....

Yeah that's a hard one to learn. Maybe you need to learn it without your left arm. (Sorry just had to say that).
Watch live performances. He does it just fine without his left. Seems easier to...

Re: Are We Just Being Silly?

First of all most of us don't "fuss" about playing the drums. Nor do we "fuss" about our drum gear.
Sure, you can find some posts on this forum that sound like fussing. But most of us don't...

Re: How did they tune in the 17th century

Well this is an interesting idea. But suppose the band tuned up and they were a half step off on tuning. But they were in tune with each other. I say no one would notice they are out of tune. ...

Re: How did they tune in the 17th century

Easy answer. Before the orchestra starts playing one instrument plays a note (usually the lead violin player) and everyone else tunes their instrument to that note. 500 years ago they did the same...

Re: Paiste ownership decimated for now :(

OK, so I probably did not need to mention the stick thing to all you veteran drummers. I played drums for 20 years until I was 22 years old. Then I quit for about 42 years. I just started playing...

Re: The needless debate over drum construction and the misguided search for undo drum resonance

This comment is just too precious. One of the best drum builders in the world builds drums that he claims even he canít play properly. I love you Andy!

Re: Paiste ownership decimated for now :(

Sorry to hear about your order. But it may be a blessing. Because now you are going to do it the correct way.

Be very aware of what stick you use to test cymbals. I recently discovered and I...

Re: Big audition day

It sounds like they were looking for a tap dancer who could play a little drums.
Someone who can tap dance can probably fake it on the drums.
Good for you for trying.

Re: The needless debate over drum construction and the misguided search for undo drum resonance

You might feel like you wasted your time posting, but I enjoyed reading your post. And, I agree with you. Because I have also wasted some time trying to get the sound I wanted from cheap drums.

Re: The needless debate over drum construction and the misguided search for undo drum resonance

Good points, good post!

Once your drum set is closed miked, most of your sound is at the mercy of the sound tech. It's not really fair, but it's the way it is. Imagine if guitar players were not...

Re: Soloing in time, issues

Yes, what WhoIsTony said is correct.

Start your drum solo by simply playing the same groove you were playing before the solo. Do this for a few bars.
I have found that if I keep playing the...

Re: Trouble playing a fast shuffle with left hand

The way I do fast shuffles is; I play the one 8th note just before the 2 and 4 back beat with my right hand. My right hand leaves the cymbal just to play those two notes. It makes it much much...

Good choice idea. I like it !

Playing in live bands I have discovered that no matter what band I play in, usually the band gets loud. And I'm always un-miced. One band I'm in right now is a...

Re: Keep playing off beat

Good point.

AND can you hear the music over the sound of your drums?
You need to have the correct mix of both.

Re: Color Matching Snare Drums to kit

Yeah, I like the gunmetal gray too. Or is that grey?

A matching snare drum is really only an issue for you, and maybe another drummer who is looking over your kit.

Re: How do you switch from matched grip to cross stick?

Yeah and that's another reason traditional grip is so good. (Sorry I just had to say that)

One idea is to play with match grip hitting the drums with the butt end of the stick in your left hand. ...
