Re: Anyone ever regret wrapping a drum set?

Buy a cheap kit and re-wrap it in your favorite diamond wrap.

Re: Trigger Controlled Light Show?

Do a Google search for drum light triggers. And do a YouTube search. I just did. Several companies out there.

Re: Middle tom doesn't resonate

Yep, another example of the Yess mount secret. I read about this situation somewhere on this forum about three years ago.
I tested it and found it to be true. At least for my 13 inch tom. Ever...

Re: Anyone ever regret wrapping a drum set?

PorkPieGuy:
I like the look of the white sparkle with red sparkle diamond inlays. Especially for certain kinds of gigs. ie. Rockabilly, Dixieland, Disco, Arena Rock, etc.
But I CAN'T believe it. ...

Re: Anyone ever regret wrapping a drum set?

I have a set of 1963 Slingerland Drums.
I've had them since they were new. They were wrapped in Silver Sparkle for 50 years. I removed the wrap.
They are now in stained naked wood. They...

Re: Interesting Observation Regarding Drum Quality and Sound Preferences

I love the sound of my 63' and 58' Slingerland drums. But I hated the bass drum spurs and the tom mounts. Not good for constant gigging.
So I installed new bass drum spurs and I mount my toms on...

Re: Anyone just play drums for themselves only?

Last night at my open mic jam I watched six drummers play with other musicians. Four of them played for themselves only.
The other two paid attention to the song and the other musicians who were...

Re: quality of drum sounds to the rest of the band is not important

Here is my opinion on the matter.

Yes, when it comes to volume, as a drummer we have to make more sacrifices then other members of the band. It sucks. Usually we have to find ways to make the...

Re: Concert style tom's

If you are thinking about going the concert tom route, here's an idea. Cut a small hole in the bottom head. Just like you port your bass drum. Try it out.
Cut a bigger hole in the bottom head. ...

Re: Dry Wood

Are there any old forum threads regarding the benefits of coating the inside of drum shells?
The benefits or drawbacks of oil or clear coating of the inside of drum shells?

Re: time keeping/ guitarists

Sounds to me like you are making the correct decision here.

I have played drums for many solo acoustic guitar players at open mic jams.
50% of them play with good consistent tempo. The other...

Re: Different, unique, or just wacky set-ups

Good point. I play a lot of jams. I would like to set up my drums with my hi hat at 11 o'clock, and my rack toms shifted around, but other drummers would have a hard time playing it that way.
I...

Re: time keeping/ guitarists

This is all I need to know to determine where the problem is.
The tempo of the song, too fast or too slow is irrelevant.
A guitar player should be able to maintain a steady tempo throughout the...

Re: Latin Percussion???

Playing conga and bongos along with an amplified band always hurts my hands.
I could learn to play properly and use microphones and a good monitor. But I rarely need to play them.

I don't...

Re: Insurance Estimate Guidelines

A typical home owners insurance policy will probably cover a drum set just like it would probably cover a piano. At home loss only. So you claim a $1000 or $2000 loss they would probably pay that. ...

Re: Middle tom doesn't resonate

DING DING DING. Game over. Sounds like Andy figured out the problem.

So maybe those kits we see with those crazy rack tom angles have the toms mounted correctly. LOL

Re: Middle tom doesn't resonate

Good point. Could possibly be it's position in the room or position in relation to the other drums. Try playing the toms while standing up or from in front of the bass drum. One time my 13 inch...

Re: Hey Joe: Great drumming or overplaying?

I agree. It's like saying Beethoven wrote musical scores that were too busy;
his music had too many musical notes written for too many instruments.

Re: FU stroke!!!!!

SUPER, that's wonderful news. You probably rewired things faster than normal because you are a drummer.
It's also great news for us old guys who wonder how long we can keep playing drums.
