Re: Guru Steambent English Cherry Snare

Beautiful!

I especially like the look of the lugs, I think Guru did well to not make them look like just another tube lug, but yet they have that classic vibe to them.


Conratulations on the...

Re: Micing my kit with 3 mics

Yes, it is a different approach and will yield different results. Not better or worse, but different.

Now, whatever technique is the right one for the situation you happen to be in, that's another...

Re: Thinking about buying a Ludwig Vistalite kit. Thoughts?

I have a set of older Vistas, and they are really good for loud rock type stuff.
The thing about them being loud - I'd say they're not that much louder than your basic ply drums, but they kind of...

Re: Micing my kit with 3 mics

To each their own. No solution is better than the other, they're all just different tools for different purposes

If you're into that kind of sound it's all well and good, but more mics does not...

Re: Garbage Percussion

Yeah... Don't you just hate it when people have their focus on the show, instead of finding meaningless little things to bitch about?

Re: Garbage Percussion

It is!

Too often we only make the machines do what we want. I think it's a good thing that you are giving the machine the opportunity to play what it wants for once :)

Re: Garbage Percussion

I have an AKAI MPC 2000XL sampler that I use to program beats with. Every once in a while it kind of goes into this glitch mode where the screen freezes up and none of the controls function anymore,...

Re: Garbage Percussion

A random sound by itself is not "music" per se, but if I were to record that branch hitting the gutter and loop it on a sampler - then yeah, you could call that music. Or more like a foundation to...

Re: What is resonance, & why does it matter.

Yes, actually it is!
Thank you for taking the time to post this stuff. I might be a bit of a drum nerd but this is all very highly entertaining and informative at the same time.

You mean this? It definitely is a good read to start out with

Re: What is resonance, & why does it matter.

My brain hurts!
This is really interesting, because I would automatically assume a dry drum = a short tone. Maybe the book would be in order. It's not like you have anything else on your to-do-list,...

Re: A new model for record labels?

Hard to find or not, the fact is that luckily there is still a TON of good music out there to be found. In the end that is all that matters.

I for one don't mind having a full-time job and just...

Re: What is resonance, & why does it matter.

Ah, yes - but there's the catch ;) Because I quite happen to like the Acro for the reason that it produces this dry sound.

Resonance - just as you stated earlier - is an option and a...

Re: What is resonance, & why does it matter.

I recorded an A-B-C (0 lugs, 4 lugs, 8 lugs) shell tone test a while back with my Acrolite, and I was surprised to find out how much the added weight of the lugs actually changed the tone of the...

Re: Possibly one of the best videos I've ever seen...

These dudes are monsters, and they're playing as if their lives depended on it. Just crazy stuff that I would not be able to play in a million years.

Yet, I still can't find any satisfaction from...

Re: ...and it changed my life

The next best thing that happened to me was that I quit playing altogether a few years after that and took a six year break.

I only picked up the instrument again a year and a half ago, and...

Re: Our fixed qualities

I guess the way you play is kinda like your handwriting - no matter what kind of texting or letters you use, it's still going to look like you.
And that to me is the beauty of it.

But, having...

Re: ...and it changed my life

Re: Do I really need an acoustic set to be happy?

First and foremost, the acoustic drum is an instrument in itself. The electric drum is an electronic device built to emulate an acoustic drum.
Of course it is a magnificent technological tool that...

Re: The disconnect between musicians perspectives and audience perspective

Well it's quite obvious isn't it - he only got one song so he put all of his chops on the one tune... While he isn't the worst player in the world,he is certainly not very pleasant to listen to...

Re: Ludwig strainer sucks

P-85 here too, on an 80s Acro. Never have had a problem with it. Though I've seen others that have been neglected and have been kinda iffy. It's just like any piece of gear, ignore the basic...

This is not just the way it is now - this is the way it has always been in popular music. The music provides a backdrop for the singer to express emotion.
It is not necessarily a bad thing, it just...
