Re: Muscle Seizing/Fatigue at Gigs

Last weekend was already extremely hot and it isn't even summer yet. We were playing outside and even when we were loading out at 11PM it was still over 90 degrees. Of course we were sweating enough...

Re: Recording drums parts for a song.

There are a couple of ways to do this, you will have to find the way that works best for you.

A good way to do it is to have the guitarist come in and play along with you, but with his amp in...

Re: Band Pay Splits

This is a good way to do it. I've been in bands that just split the cash evenly amongst the members (that's what my current band does), and others that use a "shares" system similar to this one. For...

Re: How do you hear it all?

Since you are playing at venues where you may not know what to expect, I would recommend something like the RockOn Audio (http://www.rockonaudio.com/) products. I've used a Rockbox for years and it...

Re: Brother DR-210CL Four Drum Trouble

Do you mean "Magenta"? That's the one that is reddish-purple.

Re: Playing Someone Else's Kit

Make sure you bring along the things that are the most "personalized", if that makes sense. Snare, bass drum pedal, cymbals, sticks (natch), and maybe your own hi-hat stand. This way you can try to...

Re: 'Open handed' hi hat speed tips?

When you play "two-handed" on the hi-hat, do you mean something like playing a sixteenth note pattern on the hats? Like this?

Re: Tom Mount Help - '70's Concert Toms

Ludwig ATLAS mounts would be perfect if you don't want to drill any holes. They replace one of the lugs and let you use a normal L-rod tom arm that can be positioned how you like.

Re: Odd time signature songs for beginners

"Money" by Pink Floyd is a good one to start with. It's in 7/4, has a clear bass line to follow/hum along to, and it has a good cue at the end of each measure (there is a crash on 7 and 1 during most...

Re: Anyone own of have experience with Atlas Mounting hardware?

I replaced the tom mounts on my Gretsch Renown kit (the pre-2013 model with the RIMS-style wrap around bands) with the ATLAS mounts and love, love, love them.

I also have a short ATLAS arm that...

Re: Help identify this CL deal. (3-piece shell pack)

Not a bad idea at all. You could even cut each tom in half and make a full 5 piece practice kit with mesh heads, and eventually add triggers to make an electronic kit.

Re: Help identify this CL deal. (3-piece shell pack)

Looks like a really cheap set that someone stripped the wrap from and did a piss-poor attempt at a fade. You can see where there are holes where the bass drum legs used to be (I'm guessing that the...

Re: Does playing covers change you?

Someone earlier in the thread mentioned Billie Jean. That is the quintessential example of "pounding 2&4". Every once in a while I listen to that song and I'm amazed at the layering and the precision...

Re: Does playing covers change you?

I agree. For covers, I usually create a cheat sheet with the song structure and the "signature bits" like the groove, prominent fills, etc. I play the groove and fill as needed with my own...

Re: Making a kit

It will definitely cost more to do it that way (and take longer) but at the end you will have something that is completely personalized. Start with a snare drum and if that turns out well then I say...

Re: Smaller Kits

The "Player's kit" from Sonor seems like it would be a good fit. It's a Sam Ash exclusive with a 20x12 bass drum, a 14x12 floor tom, and a 10x8 rack tom. It has a very small footprint but the drums...

Re: Anyone else dislike suspension mounts?

Hate them, too. You can't position the toms close enough together and head changes are a pain. I switched to Ludgwig Atlas mounts on my rack toms a while back and I love them. No drilling and the...
