Re: Hi Hat Rod

I've cut every hi-hat rod I've ever owned off. Makes no sense to me to have 12"-18" of rod sticking up off the hats. I'd much rather have a splash or small china utilizing that space...

Re: someone says you suck at drums, what do u do?

I'd have politely said, "I appreciate your opinion. Isn't it a wonderful thing that we're all entitled to one...even jacka_ _es like yourself?"

Re: Remote hi-hat

I play double bass and bought the Gibraltar Ulta-Adjust Hat Stand in an effort to get my hats closer so I'm not reaching so far because of the slave pedal. The more I play it, the more I hate it. I...

I knew I wasn't the only one. My Border insists on laying either next to or behind my floor tom while I play. You just know he gets uncomfortable at times, but damn if he'll move. Their loyalty is...

Re: Your practise schedule - Tips and tricks!

I sit down, check that my throne is secured in it's fully upright position, take 2 deep breaths, and proceed to beat the hell out of everything within arm's reach for 1.223 hours (give or take).

Dead on, 7Days.

Re: Drum Guy , Cymbal Guy ?

5 toms, 12 cymbals.

"Wankery" aside, my motto is surround yourself with cymbals and you greatly reduce the odds of a swing-and-a-miss! An added advantage is that they help obscure those really...

Minwax makes a wood filler product that comes in a little can (like stain) and is essentially wood pulp with some stong fillers that penetrate and bond to the existing wood. Better than glue IMO, as...

Re: Playing barefoot bad for you.

Cripes. One more thing to have to worry about. I had to immediately place it #4 on my list of things to remember not to do every day.
