Re: How to make my kick sound less boomy without using muffling?

Way I see it, is the air is gonna resonate off the big centre bit of the head, cutting a big hole in it will just take away that thing for it to resonate from, so that's likely why all the tone and...

Re: How to make my kick sound less boomy without using muffling?

Thanks for the help guys! I tuned the reso head up a turnish, evened it out and added a small pillow just against the batter head and it sounds great! I'm a little reluctant to adding a porthole, I...

How to make my kick sound less boomy without using muffling?

I've got a 22" kick with an EMAD on the batter head, and I can't seem to get the sound I want. I don't want to internally muffle the kick, because then it sounds dead and doesn't project as well, but...

Re: Most responsive snare drum for under $300?

I play a Tama SLP Classic Maple (14x5.5) and I cannot vouch for this drum enough. I've had it tuned everywhere and it's kept it's tuning under my hard hitting and constant rimshots. It tunes to any...

Re: Am I a terrible drummer?

Here have some motivation.

I remember watching a video on YouTube a while back, can't remember what it was called otherwise I would link it. It said that no one is a bad drummer. And no one is...

Re: I need help pricing my drum kit

$800 seems like a fair price to me. But I'm not based in the US, so I'm just guesstimating it's around 650. Which seems pretty fair to me.

I know it's a little off topic but may I ask why you're...

Re: What sizes of shells and cymbals for an all-around utility kit?

There's nothing you can't play on 12/14/20. And I would say a 14x6.5 snare. You can tune it up to sound like a tighter snare, and down to sound deep. That is IMO the most versatile sized snare

Re: Drummers that overplay

I've always tried to keep everything as simple as possible on my behalf. I currently play in a metal band, so we've got some complex guitar in there that I sometimes have to follow. But otherwise,...

Re: Looking for great maple snare for studio. Rock, pop, country.

+1 on the Tama SLP Classic Maple. I have one and it's so versatile. I use it literally for all genres. And of course it's nothing less than blast proof because it has Tama written on it

Re: Bop Kit choice

If your heart and ears say gretsch then surely that's the clear choice? I can't really give you insight having played neither kit. But if your ears prefer the gretsch, and you prefer the gretsch, why...

Gig Disasters?

I had my first gig Friday. Nothing major, just a small couple of song set before the showcase of the local rock school. I wore jeans when doing double pedal work. I have my beaters set at around 45...

Re: Advice for a Dad...

This, right there, is what I love about kids! When people are grown up and they don't know how to play, they'll sit at a kit and they'll sit there really awkwardly and be like "I don't know what to...

Re: Tips for absolute beginner

Definitely get a decent teacher. Even if it's just for the basics. You definitely need someone experienced to help you build the foundations of timing and whatnot.

Also, don't set your kit up...

Re: What does your kit say about your "drum nerdiness"?

On another note, Terry Bozzio would rank so high on this leader board, we'll probably have to create new numbers just to fill his space :O

Re: What does your kit say about your "drum nerdiness"?

Got myself a nice chunky 7... I feel like an outcast. Look at all you guys with your 3's and 0's! And I'm sitting here with a 7!

Re: World's Fastest Drummer - Tom Grosset

Good job! That's some pretty intense drumming right there! I personally cannot wait to see if Mangini comes back for a rematch ;)

Re: Double pedal/Two bass drums

Same here. But not for back pain reasons, I just find the two toms easier to reach if they're straight out in front of me. And my ride is more accessible too

Re: Double pedal/Two bass drums

I prefer the feel of two singles. It's just more responsive in general than a double pedal. However, I'm using a double on a single kick, simply for space and money purposes.
But on my ideal set up,...
