Re: Drum notation software

Excuse the extreme naivety here, but I've heard of a few of these software titles in my lifetime but never used them. Do any of them mentioned (or even not yet mentioned!) allow you to play your...

Re: What's your latest purchase?

You will enjoy ALL of those items - I own all of them as well (Although I think I have the MG10XU version, pretty much identical).

Re: Tama SLP G bubinga snare or Pork pie Bob snare.

I own both drums. Both have their own strengths in my opinion.

The SLP G-Bubinga is going to produce a louder, drier sound than the BOB. Being a wood snare, you'll get all the typical "woody"...

Re: Only One Drum Set?

I used to, but then G.A.S. and a steady schedule of gigging with my cover band led me to multiple kits. I do however tend to use one of the kits 80% of the time while the others stay at home (or for...

Re: What's your latest purchase?

Steve Weiss Music had a sale on all Evans heads so I stocked up on snare batters and heads for my toms... and a TuneBot Studio.

I also was experimenting last fall with different cymbal companies...

Re: A Lesser Kit For Gigging?

If I ever found myself in a situation like that, I'd probably do the same thing!

I currently rotate 2-3 drum kits of varying size and manufacturer around for my gigs, depending on venue but I have...

Re: No GAS

Funny you should mention A Customs, Sabian, and selling habits. I am currently in the same exact boat! I always sell gear I know I won't use anymore, and that funds the new stuff!

Re: Is this statement about 'hired guns' kinda true or not..?

While I agree with you, I think with the previous points made, especially from Bermuda, the range might still be too WIDE or subjective to objectify it.

The way I equate it, is if you were to go...

Re: Gigging Mishaps

Only mishap I've ever had was showing up to the gig without my kick beater. I wound up using the butt end of a screwdriver as a beater head - it actually sounded good!

Re: Is this statement about 'hired guns' kinda true or not..?

You replicated my sentiments exactly. And I'm almost hitting 40 years old, which is by no means OLD but in the grand scheme of things, means that I am at a point in my life where decisions like that...

Re: 42-strand snare wires

I use TAMA Snappy or the Gibraltar 42-stranders on all my 14x6.5" metal drums (brass, black nickel, Supra, etc.) Just seems like a nice pairing to my ears. I have yet to try on my wooden snares -...

Re: Can't take PDP seriously somehow

HA! I agree with both those sentiments.

I own a few kits, one of them the PDP New Yorker bop kit. The 18" kick it comes with is right up there sonically with my higher end kits. While the...

Re: Putting band name on kick drum head, with multiple bands?

I recommend as well. Great product and service, I have 3 drum heads from them. They also do the "cling" type which might be appropriate for the OP's need.
