Re: Looking for information about a drummer...

I think someone would like someone to sit on their face.


Also, that drummer is actually pretty damn good (compared to alot of drummers on Shittube)

Re: Why are drummers (and bassists) often listed last?

Who cares. Go practice.

Just kidding..

The reasons given such as "because they save the best for last" and "because drummers are the foundation" were great. Quick chaps.

Re: Cream's Ginger Baker trashes legends in Classic Rock Magazine, Issue #142, March

lol at Ginger Baker. This guy just doesn't give a hoot. What a bad ass. Although we all know what he says is pretty rediculous, it's no need for us to get butt hurt. I mean if this guy doesn't give a...

Re: How do you learn songs?

Re: Udu Drums?

Udu drum, like alot of other percussion instruments, is something you may actually use once in a while. Although it's alot of fun learning to play it and in different styles, the reality is that you...

Re: My rant on the Metronome...

Like many have already said, it's a practice tool, not a performance tool. However since more and more modern music requires that one plays to samples or other pre-programmed midi instruments,...

Re: Double pedals = 1/2 the drummer?

Here's the thing...Minnemann, Donati, Lang. Would they be half as famous or half as good if there was no such thing as a double pedal or if they didn't use two bass drums? I don't really recognize...

Re: why do alot of drummers only use 2 toms?

Simple answer is space, portability, and need. If you gig regularily, the less to carry the better. I can get by with using less equipment, I just have to be more creative. And well, the bigger the...

Re: Any conga players?

Sounds like an awesome set-up....If it's a decent mic I could understand using just one, but usually it's a vocal mic. Plus, I'm playing with a 7 peice band; drums, guitar, bass, keys, sax,...

Luis Conte Congas

Hey everyone. Does anyone know what heads would fit on his signature congas? Remo and Meinl have given me different sizes (Crimplock Symmetry heads). The funny thing is that neither company has...

Re: Emerging Conguero here..

Has anyone heard the Pearl Travel Congas? I've heard good things about them. The smaller size makes them an attractive option. Would anyone recommend these? I was thinking of trading in my Meinl...

Re: Gig last night with a CB snare

I know the feeling and the thought. The hype about new and expensive equipment can be foolish at times. The bottom line should always be that if it sounds good to you, then it sounds good. (thank you...

Re: 20X16 or 20X18

I have to agree with caddywumpus and Ozzy Biz. The 20x14 and 20x16 bass drum sizes are both great, the 20x18..I don't like so much. The mid range you get with 20x14 is great and will work for alot of...

Re: Advise with smaller set

your choices sound good. The 10, 12, 14 with a 20x16 kick is a nice compact set up. You should try it out. There will always be people telling you those sizes are too small etc. but really, this is...

Re: looking for a portable kit.

Hey guys, so I bought a Taye Tourpro in 8, 10, 14, 18, 14x5.5 snare. It's in a Walnut stain. I brought back the go kit and for the full sized drums it is just $200 more. They are both made from the...
