Re: Drummers that can't tune drums.

Thanks. I actually do that generally speaking. I always tune the reso higher than the batter, have never been able to get it lower and still sound like an actual drum rather than a box lol. Have...

Re: Drummers that can't tune drums.

I've been a hobbyist for 12 years and still can't tune my drums. I do struggle with pitch differentiation though, but have never had anyone show me how to tune and haven't found the method that...

Re: My leg(s) get super itchy playing drums?

Maybe its a fungus. Like athletes foot. Or an allergy to something. Itch only happens when you play drums? Not for hockey or anything else?

Re: Bearing edge recommendations

The bottom pic is similar to my meridian maples. Love those drums, sound great even with my mediocre tuning. I'd say that edge can do it all. It's warm, little punchy, round, and with a fairly...

Re: Hi-Hat advice

Hi hat stands are one of those things that don't matter as much as the other gear unless you need a shorter rod, or have space concerns. Look into how much each costs used and new and try them out...

Re: Practice Pads

I'd say one of these since you're beginning and sticks will be all over the place better to have a good size space to hit. Probably need both types of surface. Learn the movement and feel on soft...

Re: Quick doubles on the kick

Practice several techniques, starting slow, maybe using lower spring tension, and playing with a metronome.

Re: Ludwig Snare (not supraphonic, not an Acrolite)?

Not sure if its a good idea but I usually take light rust off by rubbing aluminum foil wet with just distilled vinegar. I would think it would remove light pitting. Just a thought.

Congrats on...

Re: Thoughs on Mapex?

On top of blowout prices on the meridian series birch and maple, there are blowout prices on older version saturns too. I wish I had future sight instead of hindsight :(
