Re: Brand Loyalty

I've never understood why I feel brand loyalty, but I do. It's not like I'm getting paid to advertise, but I prefer certain brands. For a while I was really into Pearl (a lot of that had to do with...

Re: I accept defeat.

Not wrong, but I think saying that tuning sucks is equally one sided. I have never had a single person tell me my high tuned, large drums in my loud metal/rock band sound anything but wonderful.

Re: I accept defeat.

Chipping in my two cents:

I use 14", 16", 18" almost exclusively for gigs. I tune them high. I get compliments from sound guys and people in the audience that my drums always sound so good. ...

Re: Gretsch USA Custom VS Ludwig Legacy

I would say this thread delivers on the sound. These two are far and above my favorite modern kits I've played. You really can't go wrong with either.

Re: Felt sound control on bass drums . . .

I've got one on the front and back of my 3 ply 24" Ludwig kick. Works quite well for me!

Re: Playing as loud as possible? Yay or nay?

This is an interesting one for me. In most circles, I'm considered a pretty loud/powerful drummer. In my main band, I'm playing my hardest/loudest probably 90% of the time. We're also a loud...

Re: I'm really feeling the Ludwig love lately...

This thread speaks to me. For me, Ludwig are the only drums I want to own.

Maybe that seems a little limiting, but it took me 9 or 10 years of playing every drum under the sun before I settled on...

Re: Touring Fees

In the indie world, from bands that I know, it seems like $300 a show is on the higher end. These bands have day jobs that they go back to at the end of tour though. Being in a punk or a metal band...

Re: Question on C&C drums

You'll be fine. Many hardcore/metalcore/alternative use C&C. Great company, great sounding, well made drums. Look at their artist roster, you may find lots and lots of drummers you know.

Re: THE CLASSIFIEDS - For Sale / Wanted

I'd really like a Gibraltar 8606 flat base snare stand if anyone is getting rid of one. Thanks!

Re: Opinions on Pearl Maple Free Floating Snare.

I have one of the maple piccolo free floaters. I actually am trying to sell it, but for a while it was actually my main snare.

I'll echo all the comments in here though. Bright, cutting pop. ...

Re: I love my Supra buuuuuutttttt...

I have wanted a Coliseum for a long while. Finally sold some gear that could pay for one, and found a real clean looking monster on ebay. Super excited about this one.

Any love for the slotted...

Re: THE CLASSIFIEDS - For Sale / Wanted

In addition to the snares and pedal mentioned above, I have a modern Ludwig rail mount for sale. 9.5 mm arm. I bought it and never used it. Great piece of hardware, just didn't work for me. $50.

Re: is anyone rocking a 10x14 rack tom instead of 9x13?

With my main band, I use a 14x10 up front. I love it. When I'm just playing by myself I tend to use a 13x9.

Re: Help for playing Doom Metal

I play in a band that identifies most with this scene, although we really play a huge mix of styles.

I'm going to echo some earlier advice. I play a 70's 3 ply Ludwig kit, 24, 14, 16, 18. I...

Re: Anyone play Hard Rock or Metal with a large unported kick?

I play in a high volume stoner metal/rock band, and I have a 24" 3 ply kick with no port. They'll find a way to mic the drum in my experience. Sure, having a hole in the head may make it a little...

Re: I'm going to Chicago--looking for stuff to do

I came in to say Vic's drum shop. I visited Chicago recently and that place blew my mind. Incredible selection! Also, if you like improv theatre, check out the IO or Second City. Hilarious!

Re: How do you keep track of where you are in a song?

I do this a few different ways actually. In my main band, we've played these songs so many times I generally know them backwards and forwards. But sometimes I'll still listen to the guitars and...

Re: slow/heavy/doomy drummers - recommendations please

For creative drumming, check out Kylesa and Baroness, and sometimes Torche. All bands that mix up styles, but all have their slow and heavy moments.

I play a mix of stoner metal and doom rock...

Part time traditional gripper here.
