Re: Anyone ever regret wrapping a drum set?

I did a re-wrap on my first kit when I was a kid.
The original wrap was starting to bubble, so I stripped it and recovered it in a different color. It was a HUGE pain in the butt, and I didn't do...

Podcast guest

Hey gang,
I was recently a guest on the Tsunami Healing Podcast. The episode was just published last night. We talked Music, Drumming, how I got my start in the biz, staying healthy on the road,...

Re: Namm 2019 rumors

Many months ago I played a couple Oak kits that Yamaha was "experimenting" with. I don't know that I can tell you what the difference between those and the now discontinued Live Customs are, but I...

Re: Double bass drum players

At one point I had a double bass setup. It looked great, and my left foot felt better hitting a solid head without the small lag of a double pedal.

HOWEVER, I think I only used the kit live maybe...

Re: Handling pay & obligations while on the road

If I get paid by a physical check or cash then finding a bank to deposit isn't too hard. Even overseas, most banks have partnerships with foreign branches. I just call my bank and give them a list of...

Re: Stage Fees?

Most tours you see now days, all the opening acts paid to be on the bill. That's how the headliner makes money, especially at the club level. Smaller venues have low guarantees, if any at all, and...

Re: Is this statement about 'hired guns' kinda true or not..?

The majority of the time people will call and say "Here's the gig, it pays $x."
It's then up to me to take it or leave it.

I'm really interested to read Bermuda's article next month, as I've...

Re: Fixing Tempo Problems

Play to a click. Play to a click. Play to a click.

If you haven't guessed, I play to a click at ALL times. Home practice, Recording, Rehearsals, Live.

Re: 42-strand snare wires

I tried them once, many years ago but I didn't dig them.
I did end up going with 30 strand wires on a heavy steel shell drum. Sounded beautiful. Once and a while pull them out on deeper drums,...

Re: So long story short, I'm a bass player now

I think it's common for Drummers to gravitate to Bass. Many of my private students double on bass, and I myself will pick one up and mess around here and there. I even did a gig once on bass, but...

Re: Metal drum mixes without triggers or sound replacement

Here's a link to a song I did, no triggers or sound replacing. What you're hearing is my Recording Customs with little to no EQ done. It's more on the Industrial side of metal, but still heavy.

Re: Sitting at the helm of Pro's

I do exactly what you showed in the diagram.
With my setup, and likewise how I teach others, the Snare is the center of the kit.

My throne is positioned directly in line with it, about a...

Re: Busted snare side head at gig...spare heads/parts

I always have two snares at every gig so I don't have to change heads.
And I have broken the snare side head a few times. Once in high school I broke the snare side on BOTH my main snare, and the...

Re: How do you know when to crash?

Personally I resist the crash. I mean, I'll do it coming off of a transitional fill (verse to chorus, chorus to verse) that kind of thing. But outside of that I'm rather selective about when and...

Re: remembering a tune

I'm really bad with names, and it often takes me a long time to learn the title of the song. Thus a setlist of nothing but song names doesn't help me. BUT there is a personal reason for this. I chart...

Re: Powdercoating aluminum and effect on sound?

I had my Yamaha Recording Custom Brass done in a matte black powder coat. They effect on the sound was minimal, and I use it on just about every gig I do now.

If a band wants me to have their logo on the kick head I make them pay for the head and the graphic. If not they get the generic brand logo. However I do have a couple groups that have gotten the...
