Re: Anyone Use Ear Muffs? (Peltor)

I use Peltor to rehearse in, although at times it can sound like I'm playing under water. Ise use plugs on stage though - Peltor's just don't quite have the aesthetics for wedding gigs.

Re: (How to cope with) Drums at University

Re: Mic'ing a kit in a small venue

We obviously had crossed wires. For a small bar, I'd only mic the bass drum for a bit of extra oomph.

Re: Mic'ing a kit in a small venue

Not at all in the over powering stakes - I'm not a hard hitter, at all, and tend to get lost in the mix. The venues we play are generally 200-300 people, so kit micing is right for us.

Re: Mic'ing a kit in a small venue

I do it, because it means I can concentrate on the groovem rather than hitting harder to cut through the mix. Its a seven piece band, with brass section, so finding a voice unmiced can be difficult....

Re: Drummer Sweat

I carry a small fan with me to gigs, especially during the summer, which I set up behind me and have on while I'm playing.

Re: Getting Control Over Your Left Foot?

Same as what I posted earlier, but you have put it in a much more readable way.

Re: Best Way To Get Sponsored?

Cheers Bermuda. I might give it a go. I just don't want to end up with some exec sat in his office using me for his comedy material

Re: If you could Have Lessons Fron Any Professional Drummer Who Would It Be?

Pete Burns used to work in a local record shop here. He would look at the record you were buying and mock it and you with the sneering sarcasm.

Re: Sharing Your Own Drums At Gigs

Snare, cymbals, pedals, stool, sticks - all of these should be brought by each drummer. The only thing any other drummer should be using is your toms and bass drum.

Re: Getting Control Over Your Left Foot?

I simple thing I tried when first starting double bass grooves was to isolate my left foot, and play normal grooves, but play the bass drum part with my left foot, rather than right. This built up...

Re: Can musical genius be hereditary?

I believe that it has to be be both nature and nuture. Look at Jeff and Tim Buckley for the nature aspect, in the voice, but Jeff's guitar playing is down to careful practice.

Re: Thinking of starting a music venue?

A place my friend runs mixes it up - they have over 18 nights, and under 18 nights. The under 18 ones sell out, generally, and the artists are happy to play them as its an audience they wouldn't...

Re: Finding drum students, any tips?

You can apply here. http://www.crb.homeoffice.gov.uk/

Not sure how quick it is, my CRB has always been done through the local council, with my being a teacher.

Re: Finding drum students, any tips?

Make sure to get yourself CRB checked, and put that on your ads. It will put anxious parents at rest, and will be one of the first things a school asks to see if you decide to look for clients there.
