Re: Hitting The Snare Center (playing on the edge)

It changes. If using both hand it's impossible to hit both dead center without your sticks hitting.

Sometimes you are looking for a different tone.

When playing REALLY fast I work about half...

Re: Beginners Drum course?

Online beginner courses are ok, but a real teacher helps get you on the right path.

Many of these courses show you a few grooves and fills, but leave things out as well. Everyone learns different....

Re: How do you warm up your foot without a bass drum pedal?

When I play a gig I sometimes play on my thighs with my hands and just run in spot while sitting to simulate double bass.

We jam before leaving the house. it does make a difference.. but I do...

Re: I can't buy a high end snare drum

Haha, Good point on the phone, But I don't own 4 other phones. I use my phone every day for many reasons and it would be tough to preform day to day tasks without it. I would also never replace it if...

Re: Canít hear my kick!

Tune it a bit higher. the low end gets lost when you jam with a band.. if you can hear your snares and toms it's the bottom that gets lost.

I have not been able to hear snare and toms.. THAT is...

Re: Help with hand pain, stiffness

My hands are often stiff when it's cold especially.

I tend to warm up on a pad for 30 minutes pre show now. starting slow and light, working my way up to fast.. it makes a big difference.

Re: How do YOU Tune?

Tunebot about 99% of the time and my drums always sound good. If they don't the heads are most likely dead. I use the online tunebot calculator and go for medium resonance.

It depends on the sound...

Re: Drummers that can't tune drums.

In regards to tuning for the front of house.. If you have mics, tune your kit, put in some IEMS / headphones and listen. I'll sometimes even tune with the mics on and the IEM's in... get it close...

Re: Time away from kit

I often am on the other side of the fence for this. If you are dedicated, log your practice/bpm's etc. and REALLY work on your rudiments this can be a good thing sometimes.

Re: Pre-planned drum fills??

Re: DFO hacked again

Google works rather than an old thread, especially on one that makes no sense.

Re: Are Pearl MCX toms and kicks just as good as their snare drums?

With coated heads tuned right, and the proper rims too they can be pretty warm, but I think there are other kits if you are looking for a VERY warm sound that would work better in this area.

Re: What should I do when the gains I've made from practicing have plateaued?

As a very logical person the "just play music" approach didn't work for me as well. I do play along to music, but playing stuff I would have never thought of, and stuff from books, and repetition of...

Picked up a Breakbeats kit cheap used. I am super impressed with the toms on this kit and for a 16 kick it actualy sounds quite good. It's mostly for practice but I could see myself taking this to...

Re: What should I do when the gains I've made from practicing have plateaued?

If your goal is to work on solid time an exercise like an hour of 1/4 notes might be ok, personally for me, that wouldn't be motivating. On the other side. I can play on a pad for 2 hours straight....

Re: Thinking about dropping back down from a 26" bass drum to a 22" bass drum.

I think you will LOVE the 22 personally. So much punch, you can hear it better, better rebound.

I must say I am kindof over virgin kicks... Having toms mounted is so much better for cymbal stand...

Re: What should I do when the gains I've made from practicing have plateaued?

My music requires speed and chops, so while I plateau, I don't quit working on the pad stuff.. If I take too long off my speeds drop, but it comes back fast.

One thing that helps is for pad stuff...

Re: Are Pearl MCX toms and kicks just as good as their snare drums?

I have a Pearl MCX in 8,10,12,14,16 toms with a 20 kick. I love it.. punchy with some heads, warm with others. Coated sounded great on it, but I tend to use dual ply toms. It is easy to tune and...
