Re: Advice re selling...

I think that the "perfectionist" comment is a little off-putting. While I might think of myself as a perfectionist in regards to my set-up, I'm aware that most other people see it as being...

Re: Gear you could afford but never owned

I've never owned either a splash cymbal or a china cymbal. I never lost any sleep over it.

Re: Drum/music Terminology: Downbeat

My understanding is that in 4/4 the downbeat is on the "1" and the backbeats are on "2" and "4". I've never used the term upbeat.

Re: Passing On Experience

Sometimes what you DON'T play is more important as what you DO play.

Re: Drum Gear for an 8/9 year old

I can vouch for the Dream hi-hats. I got a pair without listening to them first because I was just looking to use them on my practice kit. I've used them on gigs and have gotten positive feedback.

Re: If you had a drum tech, would it change your set-up?

My setup probably wouldn't change. What would change would be the frequency of head changes and tuning as well as general maintenance.

Re: 12" or 14"

I have a Stage Custom with 10-12-16-22 sizes. I mainly use the 12-16 for fills and only use the 10" tom for those big grandiose fills just before the final chorus. I don't need to have it but it's...

Re: No Talent Hack, But Loving It....

I disagree with this. I don't think that ist is deliberate. I think that tribalism is imbeded in our DNA. As a kid growing up our family moved a lot and I was often the "new guy". Everywhere it was...

Re: Forum Views Drum Gear vs. Forum Views Drum Technique..

Concerning the "money beat" for bass players: I would say that it's just quarter notes. I saw a video of Carol Kaye and she said that the producer wanted her to play straight quarters and it was...

Re: We are the product of our influences

I used to play 95% of my tom fills with the bass drum playing quarter notes all the way through. After watching a Simon Phillips video on youtube, I decided to eliminate the bass drum. I was amazed...

Re: Double bass shuffle: left or right foot lead?

I pretty much do it like Joe Franco teaches in his book "Double Bass Drumming". I treat a shuffle as two triplets with the middle note removed. It is two notes on the right, followed by two notes on...

Re: What does your kit say about your "drum nerdiness"?
