Re: A rear line day - mini report.

Damn, Andy, were you playing Meshuggah with that expression? ;)

Re: New Guru "Tour" series kits - details here first :)

Yeah, I'm always dropping my kit everywhere when I go to a gig. I get there, I take the drums out, and I throw them onto the stage from the crowd. Then I get the audience to rush the kit like that...

Re: Tom Setup with Tuning

12" and 16" toms is an extremely common setup.

Definitely swap out resonant (bottom) heads. That will make a difference. I find that having both heads at the same pitch is usually a reliable sound...

Re: New Guru "Tour" series kits - details here first :)

To be fair, a lot of that is the Guru workmanship and such- my custom stave kit that I assembled came out around $3000 (about %60 of that was just the shells and bass hoops) and I did not try to save...

Yeah, get some audio!

Are there any sepele kits in the pipeline that we'll see soon?

Re: A rear line day - mini report.

Sounds like you had some good little publicity among those drummers! Hopefully the heads hadn't gone the way of Premier's at LDS last year by the end of the event ;)

Re: Revolutionary cymbal choking technique ;)

Those videos are absolute gold. I think my favorite part (among many) is the "ROCK SAX" promo near the end.

Re: DW nomenclature: Sound portal(s)

It's certainly an interesting idea. I mean, it has been 5 years since that video, and I haven't seen much of it since, so I'm guessing it hasn't sold crazy well. Personally, I felt the drummer in...

Re: Help with color choice

Gorgeous look. You're all set for pretty much anything now!

Re: Revolutionary cymbal choking technique ;)

Just get Buck Nelson's patented Gorilla Grip® (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yCzW4fVRViI#t=150) and this won't be an issue any more!

Re: Two floor toms....

To my eye, it looks centered, but of course most people are used to 'centering' themselves over their dominant foot rather than between their feet. From that perspective, I can see your point.

Re: Good ear plugs(or other sound attenuation methods) for liver performance...?

The Hearos aforementioned, and most other earplugs that look like them, do a very good job for their price. I personally use Earasers which are more expensive (around $40) but sound very accurate...

Re: Tigerwood - Grrrrrrrrr :)

I love them as well. Great choice on those, Andy.

Of course- the drums aren't half bad either ;)

Re: Two floor toms....

I liked having two toms over there though the 2nd needs to be pretty far out to not be an awkward reach- I like having toms to the left and right more :) If you're not a two-rack-tom purist, you...

Re: Renown and New Classic Question

I'm kicking myself, and I'm not even involved... gorgeous kit and the ones with chevrons were going for peanuts on Ebay a while back.

Re: 3 piece for Metal (is it good enough)?

Show me a metal drummer that uses a cranked 13" rack tom with no other toms and I'll throw myself into the nearest river. Not that uniqueness isn't a good thing... but being a reliable player who,...

Re: 3 piece for Metal (is it good enough)?

Tune the 13" low and I think you'll be fine. A floor room could be nice but I think you can get away without one since it's 13".

Re: 3 piece for Metal (is it good enough)?

Hahaha!

Seriously, the drum police aren't going to take away your drums if you don't have enough toms. Use what you like. Floor tom/kick/snare is definitely enough for a lot of stuff. You miiight...

Re: Stave snare head recommendations?

LMAO



I think so, at least. In my experience, there's not a HUGE difference, but the dot heads generally have more focus in the center. Plus (to me) they accentuate the higher overtones when...

Re: Stave snare head recommendations?

Yeah, I wouldn't call my half-inch thick ringy at all, though that's also bearing edge & head choice & other stuff I suppose. Now, one of those Gretsch 1" thick ones... those will likely get some...

Re: Stave snare head recommendations?

Well, the vintage A is the same thickness as an ambassador but two plies (7+3), but it is worth trying I suppose.

Re: Stave snare head recommendations?

Yeah, the PCRD and the G14s/G12s and stuff are kind of two sides of the same coin to me. I liked the clear a little better with the dot, and the coated a little better without the dot. The Remo...

Re: Snare Choice for Punk Gig

Does the Hakim have the 2.3mm triple flange hoops on it? I'd wager you can absolutely use it, it'll sound like a snare anyways ;) but it may lack a little cut if it has 'standard' hoops. You may want...

Re: Stave snare head recommendations?

Those are fairly thick, yeah?

Anyways, on my 13x5 half inch thick Padauk snare responds to single ply heads much better than two ply heads- partially because it's thick enough (and it has...

Re: Autumn beauty!

(psst- if the lugs don't have inserts, you can probably just take off the bottom head ;)
