Re: Stan Lynch

+1 Stan Lynch.
Another drummer who makes it sound easier than it really is.
Some very clever parts and hooks in his drumming, and he was a great harmony singer to Tom.

Re: Describe the SONOR Sound Please...

So far I've heard Sonor Phonics sound "warm , open, beefy, dry, punchy, warlike, deep, focused, typanny".
I think the point people are driving at is these words mean different things to different...

Perhaps people knew of these. Just came cross them. Anybody want to argue about ply layup or wrap vs. lacquer.

Re: Meet Herbert

Cool machine. Love it. Looks like it made airplane parts one time.
No doubt sad to sell, but maybe it gets a new life.

Re: Strange tom phenomenon

Perhaps the weight of the 13 strains the base of the tom mount (i.e. in the bass drum) to let the 12 side ring freely. When the 13 is removed, no weight/strain there and the 12 cannot ring freely....

Re: Kenny Jones Ripping it Up With The Small Faces

If you listen to old Small Faces music, 1965 - 66, Kenny's tom fills and playing are a lot like Keith's. Not quite as bombastic... He certainly used a hihat, but was not a pocket drummer back then at...

Re: Pearl Masters Studio Birch (BRX) ó Buy?

The BRX is in 'power tom' sizes, for example 10 x 10 and 12 x 10..... Not for everybody, and often hard to re-sell down the road (most modern toms are 12 x 9, 12 x 8).
I think it will be same for...

Re: Toms for beginner, 1up or 2?

Ok, I don't know how old 'the kid' is.
I'd agree, if he's ever seen a drum kit, he will say "where are all the toms dad?". So, he gets lost in all those toms, banging around for months. Fun fun for...

Re: albums with missing drum kit elements

Ramones - totally anti-drum fill. They would have beat up their drummer had he tried. Chris Frantz - you're right, his simple drums beast suited the music, all that was needed.
On contrary, I do at...

Re: If 'Bohemian Rhapsody' was released today...

Agree completely. And impact? as I posted above, its too bloody long for the average pop song of today. Really, as pointed out above, the new Hollywood movie on the band is the only reason for its...

Re: If 'Bohemian Rhapsody' was released today...

Silly arguments are some of the best ones. And hypotheticals? where would we be without 'em?

Regarding Point 1. Nope - Queen always said 'no synths' on their records (back when one read album...

Re: Toms for beginner, 1up or 2?

Ok, here's a different suggestion.
Just starting out? Set up only the bass drum, snare and hi hat for the first month.

Re: Rick Beato on grid-based music (quantisation)

That was a good one, went on a little long.
Pretty sad state, if people producing simply want musicians in one at a time, give their parts in one take...for assembly later by some algorithm. What a...

Re: If 'Bohemian Rhapsody' was released today...

Bohemian Rhapsody never popular today for the simple reason it is way too long.

Yes I agree, one of the bigger hypocrites.

Me, I am fine if the message is written and sung, or even has hidden meanings, but prefer no politics whatsoever in live performance, certainly not...

Re: State your unpopular drumming opinions

Yes, your example fits only pop music in the USA. Even in USA pop music there were other great drummers - Sandy Nelson, Dino Danelli, to name a few. Are you saying many other genres in the 60's 70's...

Re: Drum Terms That Make No Sense...

These terms all make great sense to me.
The problem is, what one person hears as 'dry' may be rather 'washy' to another.
Also 'throaty bark' is a hilarious one. That would vary with type of dog.

Re: Seriously, how many notes do you think you play in 3 hours of music?

thousands of notes, makes me think of repetitive strain injuries. Key points I read on a medical site:

- Psychological stress and monotony can worsen the symptoms.
- Improved workplace practices...

Re: Which to tune low, Which to tune medium to high

In my view you should use your ears to tune them to the way you like. Those are such quality snares you could experiment for days.
As a very general rule, my ears always prefer wood on the low side...

Re: State your unpopular drumming opinions

That multiple negatives lead to no positives.

That the 'Your Playing' section of DW is the most useful and important but least visited and commented on by members.
