Re: bass drum depth

If X is good, X + 4 is better. Marketing, as it is, says that if you want to introduce something that's different than the other guy - make it bigger. Once bigger is desired, everyone else has to...

Re: Do you think it's time for your favorite drummer to retire?

I'm prepped and ready for Tico Torres or Charlie Watts to pull the plug.

Re: The matching snare

My kit came with a matching snare. I use it half of the time. If your drums are excellent, your snare should be also.

Re: Ongoing hi hat problem

I've played on some real junk and never had that problem. Either you have a bad clutch or you're not securing it properly. If you feel you're tightening it properly, get a new one. Having it close...

Re: Help - Meeting up with Guitarist

I think you answered your own question. I rarely "hook up" with anyone I don't know something about, especially at home. I want to know what they're about musically (at least) before jamming or...

Re: How to make music!

I'm not sure exactly what you mean. Do you mean backing tracks without drums? Why not simply play with your CD's, records, tapes... whatever you have. Run them through a mixer w/EQ and you can...

Re: Just Drums (Richmond, VA) Is Closing

Sorry to hear it too. Too few local drum shops nowadays. I just ordered a cymbal. Hope it helps.

Re: Real Ludwigs?

They look too real not to be. However, you can have him/her send you a photo of the inside date stamp to be sure.

Re: What's going with Just Drums? Store closing?

Thanks Billy. I didn't have to type all that. It's the same across the board - local drum shop, local dive shop... Local "experts" aren't appreciated because people become "internet experts"...

Re: Searching for my first drum set

Two kits like that, if they both give you what you need, will be almost identical. Good luck and welcome. Keep in mind that you will almost always get more for your money buying used.

Re: Does anyone else hate splash cymbals?

We could just as easily substitute 8" toms for this thesis. Some people would never use one. Some people don't leave home without them. Some don't see any use for them. Some start every drum fill...

Re: Amazing Street Drummer in France

That's a very well shot video. Thanks for sharing. There are many street "drummers" here in the states who use buckets similarly and frequently they are highlighted by video makers. There's no...

Re: Why ya' gotta be so dark?

This is what I was thinking too. Years ago we didn't have all the choices that are available so we learned how to "play" the instruments. We didn't expect the instrument to play for us. Like with...

Re: Making Ends Meet Between Tours?

Between tours? To get to a "tour" you'll need to get employed in one of the most talent-full cities in the world. Once you get into the rotation you will have to hook up with a group that ends up...

Re: Need help identifying old Mapex kit

These are not anything like Orions. Additionally, I think Billy stopped playing Mapex's long before the Orion's came out. Hopefully you got something commensurate with what you paid. You'll get...

Re: Yamaha Drums

I would go to your local drum store and see if they will order it for you. Or, Guitar Center (or similar big box store) or Ebay. If you've been looking at them locally, where you decided you really...

Re: Adjusting a kit between two drummers.

I wouldn't take it personal. You're playing someone else's kit so expect to adjust everything whenever you arrive. If you only have to adjust the throne and hats, consider it a great day. The...

Re: Broken Down Tama Royal Stars - What to do?

You've gotten good info. I would either give them to a prospective drummer or flip them for $100. The cymbals have much more going on than patina and the heads (even the buggered up logo base reso...

Re: Band doesn't understand timing (wat do)

If it's covers you're playing, the songs already exist and have been arranged and orchestrated for play. So, simply play them as written. If it's original songs, then they need some theory or basic...

Re: Does this look like a good deal...

The price is excellent. If they take that offer (or even stick around for a counter) you should buy a lottery ticket. It's already around 1/2 of usual.

Re: Why aren't Recording Customs popular today?
