Re: SNARE TUNING

I'll trust Anon's opinion more than all of you posters who didn't even see the thread. Shemp may have been mistaken about Andy's intent, and he may have expressed it in a rude way, but he wasn't...

Re: An attempt at a policy change here

As a woodworker, I truly appreciate the craftsmanship and artistry that goes into Guru drums, and I love Andy's passion.

Andy's passion and multiple posts clearly translated into quite a bit of...

Re: Gift for my Band Director

Seems to me that she is getting a gift that shows support for something the band director feels passionate about. Making that contribution is supportive and expresses appreciation. It would be...

Re: How Many Shells, What Shells, and What Cymbals and Hardware......

Except we typically value material goods we pay for more, for some illogical reason.

This could be the mother of all "kits", but probably isn't ;)

Re: Christmas present pondering

Thanks, he does like the idea of a splash. It's one of the drum items he's commented on when he's seen them. Thinks they are "cool".

Re: Beginner Drum Building

You don't need an enormous number of tools just to make stave drums, but the ones you need are fairly expensive since you have to be quite accurate on your angles. At a minimum you'll need a good...

Re: Christmas present pondering

Hi Dutch,

I don't know cymbals that well, but china's always sound like like oscar's trash can lid on sesame street. I'm not sure he'd like one.



I know. Negligent parenting.

Re: Christmas present pondering

Thanks. I was guessing medium heavy since rides seem to be heavier than crashes. At least what I've seen, which isn't a lot. Figured a heavier crash might be more rideable.

On the new thing,...

So I considered putting this in the cymbal section, because that's what I'm leaning towards, but decided to post here since maybe someone has a better idea.

I'll request a demonstration on Tuesday (next lesson).
It's really this "Triplet rolls are another animal altogether. You're doubling each hand in triplet rate." that has me confused.

Re: How do you first start learning fills?

I think we're getting too advanced for both my son and me with the triplet roll part, but it sounds like:

Re: How do you first start learning fills?

So even in drumming, we're talking about the rhythm when we say triplet.

Hi Guys,

To avoid any advanced advice, my son turns 12 next month. He played a drum pad 10 months, then got a full set about a year ago. He takes lessons and is working on rudimental solos, some...
