Re: What's your latest purchase?

What does your wife play? My better half plays brass. Next time I want to spend some change on myself I'll spoil her with a new brass instrument or a mute and she'll ignore my purchases for a while....

Re: Hiring drummers for a project, need drummer advice.

I don't think John read the OP's post correctly. Either that or "on the back end" means something different to him.

I think anyone would be ok with being paid half up front/half after.

Re: Cutting down drums

Dre, if you're slicing .5" off each tom then you'll need new, shorted tension rods for each side.

Personally, I would just slice the kick down to a much more manageable 14" depth. You won't lose...

Re: Got called for a Session, YAY! Gear Upgrade?

I'd go for the ride. That way you have a darker ride and a brighter one to cover more ground. I don't care for the sound of aluminum snares and you already have an acro so I'd say pass on the Supra....

Re: rare yamaha stage custom ive bought

Poor OP, are you trying to cling on the that "Rare" pitch stave off the buyer's remorse? You got a great kit, I live in the US so I can't comment on how good the price was. It is not a rare kit...

Re: Don't do that!

Why doesn't anyone ever offer me beer for lessons? That sounds like a great arrangement.

Re: Versatile DW Snare

I tried a 14x5 or 5.5 DW Super Solid snare in my local GC the other day. Found it bright and severely lacking in body. I'll bet you could score a similar sound in a 13" steel snare with a muffled...

Re: What's the best pedal technique study?

I'll bet it was Amodo. Technique threads offend his delicate New Yorker sensibilities.

Re: Cutting down marching drums

Go for it. Don't worry about getting more than one drum out of the shell, just get your drum guy to pick a choice piece of shell then cut it down to your desired depth.

I have 2 snares that...

Re: Where do all the drum sets go?

Shh!! Don't tell him that!

We'll wait for him to have a mid-life crisis in a couple years and then score some sweet vintage pieces for cheap.

Yea...a Black Beauty you say? Never heard of it old...

Re: Difficult drum parts

I love that feeling. I have my gigs where I learn songs and play what I'm told and I have my original band where I play what I like. We have all written parts that were difficult for us to play and...

Re: 14" floor tom as rack tom

I have tried it, it works well for a big rock sound. The floor tom up by the bass drum looks cool but it is a PITA to reach, you end up putting unnecessary strain on your back to reach that low....

Re: Just a G.A.S. observation

I use them to keep my gear clean. I find that the small hands of children are perfect for cleaning the hard to reach nooks of my chrome snare. When they misbehave I use them as a bass drum pillow.

Re: Zach Hill's Drums

Grunt, did you notice that the CL seller listed it as a Vistalite kit?

Yes OP, that is a Ludwig kit. Looks like a 14" concert tom that he has mounted in a snare basket and a 16" or 18" floor...

Re: Dilemma : what should I sell?

Do you have anything else cool you can sell? Post it on the Classifieds section and recoup your losses then keep both snares. A deep snare and a shallow snare can cover a lot of sonic ground, no...

Re: Tip of the day

Great story Tony, reminds me of that old saying of teaching a man to fish. Now that I think about it I should probably mark my cymbal stand heights to save me a little extra time in setting up.

Re: Ludwig Super Classic from 1964

Nice looking kit. I'd love to see some well lit pics without the weird hipster filter on them. Are those hats 14" or 15"?
