Re: LAMA infos

I'm already accepted into the program starting this fall. I can't give you an opinion from actually studying there yet, but I have visited a couple times and am familiar with the area. It's a really...

Re: Great Vintage Kit... Overpriced?

I'm sure it wouldn't be in a display window if they actually thought people were gonna be jumping to buy it. It's guitar center, of course they made the tag price ridiculous (every music store does...

Re: Is LAMA or PIT worth attending?

I live within an hour of both schools and have checked them both out thouroughly. Take note that LAMA is now a two year program, not one year. LAMA is a MUCH smaller school than MI (1000+ students...

Re: Bring Your Practice Pad on Subway Train?

If you use the vic firth or hq practice pads, I don't imagine you'd get any complaints unless someone was right next to you. Those pads are A LOT quieter than the remo pads. And you don't really need...

Re: Doing some market research

This may be shocking or repulsive to some of you but...some mom and pop shops are terrible places to buy drums. They know nothing about the product they're selling you, and rip you off with their...

Re: Single Pedalers:

I've always been playing single. I've never really cared for or needed double, and 90% of the time I hear double I don't really like it anyway. I'd rather just get as good as I can with a single and...

Re: Charley Wilcoxon - The All American Drummer

Cindy Blackman cited it as one of her favorite drum books at a clinic. It's definitely a very valuable book that can do a lot for your hands. It would be a very good complement to Stick Control I...

Re: Anyone, Anyone?

I'm pretty sure that is an extremely rare drum kit, and if it's in as good a condition as it looks, it's worth is probably not too far from that price. Like people have said, it's a kit for...

Re: making a living playing in a band full time

If you want to make a living off of music, particularly off of being in a band, you have to be ready to work harder than you've ever worked before, and be prepared to make absolutely no money at...

Re: an odd questian to all about drum set up

Probably something you would already do, but I imagine it would help you when you sit down at a new kit to hit all the drums, play a couple beats...you know, get warmed up to the position of...

Re: New DW Collector's Custom Lacquer

I have an Ayotte kit, which has reinforcement hoops. DW's hoops are much much thinner than most reinforcements. I guess in theory they might lessen overall resonance, but I don't think it's any...

Re: Darren King

Man, I have been thinking about starting a thread about him ever since i joined. Darren King is absolutely amazing. There is no other drummer like him. He is so ridiculously solid, and great for that...

Re: The 18 inch bass drum thread!

Maybe you should consider getting a 20". It will give you a little more punch and fatness for rock, but still work great for jazz...just a matter of tuning.

Re: linear playing - music recommendations?

Check out the book Advanced Funk Studies by Rick Latham. A lot of it is based on linear concepts and it will really hone your groove at the same time.

Re: Any tips for tempo?

Everyone's had great advice. Practicing to a metronome has helped me immensely. But my drum teacher showed me a way to really hack out your internal clock.

The problem with metronomes is that...

Re: Jazz Bearing Edges?

I'd say it's mostly subjective. Gretsch does 30 degree edges, which makes for a warmer sound (more head-to-shell contact). Edges that are slightly rounded over will also create a warmer, "vintage"...

Re: making my snare more sensitive

No, they do. Their metrix wires come in 40 strand. I'm not sure how many shops would carry them; you might have to order them.

Re: making my snare more sensitive

I second the comments about thinner heads and 42 strand snares. That will up your sensitivity a lot.

Re: Shine Drums vs. Truth Drums

They cost money, but they're worth it. Their craftsmanship is great and their looks are perfect. They really know how to make beautiful kits. And I can personally testify that they record really well.

Re: Shine Drums vs. Truth Drums

I have played and seen played both. Both are custom keller companies, so you know the shells are the same. However, I think that Truth has an advantage over Shine aesthetically. Much better look to...

Re: is this really an upgrade worth while

Ayotte doesn't own taye. Ray Ayotte, former head of Ayotte (obviously), is now head of taye. It's kinda weird. Foreign made does matter in most situations (compare an american made fender to a...
