Re: Another Band Drama Thread

I think it has to do with tube amps. I play guitar myself in addition to drums. Amps tubes on a stack (the amp head) really open up at ear splitting volume. That's the harsh truth. But thanks to...

Re: hi hat dis-assembly

I heard a story once from musician friend. He knew of a drummer who had a big chevy van. He had so much space all to himself, he would never take apart anything! Cymbals on stands left spread open,...

Re: A Possible Gig with Acoustic Guitars - A Query

I play open mics twice a week. I'm always playing to acoustic guitars. I use smaller drums, in a jazz/bop configuration. 12" 14" 18" bass with 14" snare. But I tune them deeper than a jazzer would. I...

Re: Seriously? This can't be real.

Reminds me of I guy I sell to at my office supply store job. He takes a $40 4-pack of basic grey metal folding chairs and pops the metal sheet back rest out of them. He then takes the curved top bar...

Re: Only in the '80s....

I had one of those little "kits"! It's what got me started.. It broke pretty quickly and never sounded that good. Funny what Buddy would do for a buck.

Re: Bonzo snare to be auctioned

Maybe it's overpriced. It seems to me to be the matching snare from his famous Amber Vistalite kit that he never used playing out on stage, because we all know he favored a Ludwig Supraphonic steel...

Re: Session work gear must haves?

Love your storage case. I don't gig without these lifesavers. I have a lot off the same stuff and should all have it in a nice box instead of a ragged ziplock bag.

Re: The worst drum /cymbal purchase you ever made

Re: College clones?

I think of originality as that one quirky thing you do that is uniquely you and you play that way without realizing it. There is this fear that I've had myself, that if you don't do the same dang...

Re: What's the weirdest thing you ever broke on your kit during a gig?

I'm not a hard hitter so i've never broken anything. My pre show ritual is to check that everything on my kit is tight. Not so tight that you can't ever untighten it, though. (Learned that lesson at...

Re: Do drummers lose points for disassembling the moment the show is done?

I just take apart what I have to and hustle it all off stage to the "green" room area and then pack it up there. Lifting a bass drum with the toms mounted on it will do ya in! But I make it quick. I...

Re: Does Used Gear Fetch More If.....

Re: Gadd ... playing Evans?

I bet you could buy a cheap beat up CB kit from Craigslist put those heads on there, tune it up and Steve would still sound like himself. It has very little to do with the heads.
