Re: Drum mic recommendations

I take it you're interested in mic's that will be good for recording but are also suitable for live sound reinforcement as well.

I would suggest picking up some used Audio-Technica mic's, starting...

Re: Does anyone know how much it costs to ship a cymbal

Pack your cymbal in the exact box you want to ship it. Measure it. Weigh it. Go to the shipping calculator of your shipper preference and you're in the ball park (shipping costs can vary with the...

Re: Low tuning inspiration - Carter Mclean

Glad to see Carter getting some recognition. I stumbled across his videos through the Dunnett Facebook page. I really enjoy his drum demos. Such a great way to actually hear what the drums (and...

Re: What computer should I get?

Definitely go Mac. I've been a Mac user exclusively since 1995. If you don't plan on moving your new laptop around at all, you can get by with a MacBook Air. If you plan on taking it with you...

Re: Zebrano Tour series snare video - the competition prize snare :)

Ditto. I also gravitate most of the time towards lower tunings of drums. This snare kills it on all three tunings, but if you backed me into a corner forcing me to choose a favorite, it would have...

Re: Sound proofing Idea

I think your best bet is to locate a sound deadening brand of sheetrock (like they use in THX movie theaters) and layer your walls with a two sheet thickness all around the room.

Re: Peart - would you hang out with him?

I've never been taken in by the whole celebrity status thing at all, so I respect anybody's desire for privacy as much as I hope they respect mine. That said I would enjoy hanging with Neil but only...

Re: If you were sitting behind my kit.

Normally I would say cymbals hands down, but I would lean towards getting the snare given its rarity. You already know you want that particular snare. If you don't know what cymbals/sizes you're...

Clarification on my prior post, I would only use Sprayway on wraps and chrome hardware.

Re: Polishing drums

Back in the day I used a general kitchen cleaner aerosol sold by the Fuller Brush Company. It did a really good job cleaning wraps and chrome hardware. After it went off the market I came across...

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

Another option is to purchase used omni-mounts of your choice, take them to a machine shop or local welder and fabricate a slider piece to fit in the stock mounts on the concert tom shells. You can...

Re: For those who play at church or not.

Probably the single biggest issue is perception--some churches only employ a drum shield because church members "perceive" drums are louder when they are in the open than behind a shield. This is...

I know Curt personally and trust me, he has seen the best and the worst in a wide variety of church acoustics and their worship team members. He isn't singling out drummers necessarily to be the...
