Nice setup !

The band I'm in plays loud R&B and rock & roll. The drums are always without microphones and amplification.

Re: Meytal Cohen? She plays, right?

Re: Cajonito question for drummers

My advice is:

If you are right handed, set it up with the slap sound for your right hand and the snare sound for your left hand.

You will probably be playing it most of the time with your right...

Re: Getting Stamina & Balance Back

In order to keep my stamina and balance, I walk 2 miles each day.
I listen to music while I walk. I walk to the beat of the music.

How long were you not playing the drums.

I think you may...

Re: Your opinions on this kit?

Getting any drum set to match the drum sound that you have inside your head is always difficult and time consuming.

Re: NAMM 2015 - Saturn V - I need info! (Excited)

Is this like a recall? Because there is a problem with the bearing edge?

Or is this an idea where they re-market these as "new and improved" kits?

Re: Drummers writing full songs using Guitar Pro?

Depending on your musical ear, it can be easily done using the Garage Band software from Apple.

Re: Going to shows of a band you got rejected from a good idea?

Larry is right on here.
Musicians are members of a community.

Re: My new "Yes I can play" kit ;)

You know, you made me think of something important here.

Every drum, no matter how cheaply made, no matter how old or new, has it's own voice.
A few voices may be ugly, but most are not. They...

Re: Is this a vintage 6.5" X 14" Ludwig Acrolite?

I'm no expert.
