Re: Is practicing heel-down worth it?

Re: Is practicing heel-down worth it?

Why not practice both-as practicing different grips, etc.? Seems anything you add to your tool box could come in handy. Then too how can you find what works for you personally if you don't try...

Re: A re-statement of the obvious

Re: Looking for Jazz Drum Set

Here's a typical jazz drum kit played by a jazz master. I think Tony and Bo nailed it-it's what you play not what you play on (16-24 bass drum or larger-jazz cats play on them all). Now you have to...

Re: Dry Wood

Re: SPAM

Personally I like the "hands on" moderation. As mentioned technology can't flag everything. Reminds me of grad school, there were two professors (they did research on cardiac muscle) that had written...

Re: Review - Yamaha Tour Custom

Nice kit Wildbill-Merry Christmas to you. It didn't come with a snare to did it? Has a nice compact profile it seems-I'd drop the 10 or 12 in tom to slim it down to just two toms -for my own personal...

Re: Analogue to digital - the journey begins.

Good luck Andy on your new adventure.
This brings up something I've "pondered on"-instruments make music in analog (with infinite possibilities) and historically we recorded them that way but now we...

Re: Do you have a piece of equipment that you've used since day 1 and still use it regularly?

My eldest brother kept my original kit (1963) and a few years ago gave me the 24 in Zildjian Avedis cymbal that came with it. The last I saw the kit was the 80s and it still had 60s heads on it-and a...
