Re: Is it just me?

I think people are just looking for that end-all "perfect" set of cymbals that will sound like whatever they want them to sound like. To some people a cymbal is a cymbal, and they can get by with...

Re: Biggest problem with a sub, or new band member?

It also depends on the instrument you're playing, and who is subbing. I find that subbing as a drummer is the easiest of the duties. *Usually* there is another player (usually the bass or guitar...

Re: Biggest problem with a sub, or new band member?

I've seen several subs trainwreck before. You've got to know the PARTS, first and foremost. If you don't play a part that the rest of the band is comfortable with (not necessarily the original, but...

Re: What's On Your Shopping List?

"I'll know it when I see it."

I'm always on the lookout for 50s A Zildjians and 90s K Zildjians. Oh, and a DW Acoustic EQ snare is on the wanted list as well--I've always wanted to tinker with...

Re: Do they make....

I used a Dr. Beat in college to do this. It has the capability to program 8 separate "counts" in a row. You could program "ONE two three ONE two ONE two..." pretty easily. You could also program...

1. At my teaching space.
2. Packed up and ready to go for a gig this weekend.
3. Packed and ready to go, soon to be headed for the next pit in 2 weeks.
4. Set up to practice on....

Re: A Question To Those That Collect A Number Of Drum Kits

...um, you lost me there.

It's not a matter of "need," really. Heck, if we wanted to borrow/rent drums kits for gigs, we could probably hustle that. Or, why not just play buckets? Or a...

Re: Tastefully Overplayed

Yes, I would consider that song one where the drummer "overplays" his part, but it's also tasteful because his part interlocks with the rest of the song. The song would be less interesting if the...

Re: it hurts and that is why I am posting

I agree. My thinking is that if your hand is hitting the rim, the drum is too close to you for where you naturally want to play. If you're hitting the rim with the sticks it's too high. If you're...

Re: Bass drum pillow talk: Keeping it down

When most people start out playing drums, they want a drum sound that sounds close to what they are familiar with, and that's usually a "quick, low punch, with no sustain." It's easy to simulate...

Re: Bass drum pillow talk: Keeping it down

I was going to say something along these lines. :)

I'm REALLY not a fan of pillows and how they eat up all the tone from a drum. The closest I get to ruining a bass drum sound anymore is...

Re: Doubles with Cross Stick

The motion for doing quick double cross sticks is the same as doing quick double strokes--two quick strokes. The difference for me, however, is that with double strokes, I do a wrist stroke and then...

Re: Drummerworld Dictionary

I'm not entirely sure. I was doing kale smoothies every day for about 4 months before I started developing symptoms similar to MS. It went on for another year while I visited neurologists,...

Re: Drummerworld Dictionary

Make sure you rotate your greens. If you have nothing but kale in your smoothies, it will start making you feel bad in the long run. I found this out the hard way, myself. All of the "healthy...

Re: Drummerworld Dictionary

Another great thread idea!



...this has been going on for years, and the best part is my name isn't actually Phil. Hooray for anonymity!

Re: Sorry I ever got rid of those.

I had a CX kit at one point, too. Nice kits, for sure! Actually, I've owned several at various times. Yeah, they were always great kits...tuned up nice, sounded nice and huge and projected well. ...

Re: How do you save up for gear purchases?

WOW! I hope you realize that's a LOT!!!

There was one period of 2 months where I spent about $12,000 on gear (wiped out my "rainy day" account...), but I ended up selling most of it off for...

Re: How do you save up for gear purchases?

For a while, I had a slush fund cash envelope for buying/selling gear that would replenish itself when I sold gear. When I had more than $1500 in there, I would skim some off the top. When I bought...

Re: A great Craiglist steal?

I agree. It also says, "condition: salvage". You never know what condition they'll be in, and the person who posts an ad without a picture will tend to be reluctant to take one and send it to you. ...

Re: Need a huge kick, is 60 inches enough?

Better go 62" just to be sure. The nice thing about that size is that you can tune it to sound like a 60" drum, if necessary for the gig.

I heard rumors at the NAMM show that DW was coming out...

Re: I Need Help Identifying a Leedy and Ludwig snare/tom

Re: How do you feel the day after a gig?

I feel fine. Sometimes I'm tired after the gig while loading out, but the next morning I have no residual effects. That is, unless I go out partying afterwards, then I'm just tired from lack of...
