Re: Why the hate? (Lars Ulrich)

I think it is fairly obvious Lars made his millions and could not give a rats ass about being a great drummer. He does not practice and I think his skill as a drummer is continuously getting worse....

Re: How do I fix this?

I am not familiar with that throw, but it looks necessary that you will need to pul the heads, and remove the whole throw off from the shell in order to access the innards. You may not need to buy or...

Re: Weird Al Gets Whiplashed

Whenever I could, like if our singer was talking to the crowd or there was a moment between songs, I would tap my heel on the quarters of the next tune and click the 1 quietly just prior to the...

Re: The Best Drummer in the World

I played professionally for over 30 years, and I just pulled off my first real 3 stroke per hand buzz roll a couple days ago.
I am learning to play like a drummers drummer for myself now, and the...

Re: Injury stories while drumming

I crashed my motorcycle during an afternoon of hardcore sport bike riding. Broke a bone in my right bass drum foot and shattered my pinky finger. Played that night, pretty painful. Hit the hospital...

Re: Hoops?

That is kind of interesting Porter, cause I feel really at home with die cast. Maybe that has to do with what you were brought up on and are used to.
My first "pro" kit was a new 1982 Gretsch kit,...

Re: The Orphan Drum Factory II

Nice find. Building a kit like this, I know from my experience is like treasure hunting. When you buy a new kit, you get that exhilaration or rush from the purchase once. Doing it this way, you get...

Re: Snare Making

Thanks man, if they didn't sound better than anything I could buy, I wouldn't bother making them. It is not much cheaper and is a lot of time and effort on top.
I have been posting them on site for...

Re: snare lugs

And thanks for the props Gruntersdad.
I think this is the snare you refer to.

Re: snare lugs

The lugs will not affect the sound to where your ears will notice. Single point lugs are fine if you know how to avoid abusing them. If you like to crank either top or bottom head to the tension of a...

Re: New kit!

Yeah, natural maple is so great under the lights. A lot like a white kit, they will take on the colour of the light gels. My old Gretsch kit looked amazing with Pink and with Yellow light.

Re: Keller thin shells for jazz and high tunings?

I used to know some Canadian drummers named Lalle, could have been Lally. One played in Bootsauce.

Re: Hoops?

This is like throwing one steak into a pen full of dogs, but here is my opinion.
Most will say triple flange hoops allow a drum to ring free, or get more resononance. And die cast will deaden out...

Re: Snare Making

A lot of what I have learned was from years of trial and error. Now we have the internet, I learned 3 lifetimes worth in just a few short years, so I have no problem sharing.
I use Allen heads...

Re: Left Foot in the "Floating Double Bass" Technique

Re: Why the "hate" for nylon tips??

Regal tip nylon won't fly off. I used to assemble them. They had a press in which the tip was stretched over a sub tip lathed into the wood, so there was no way that tip could come off without...

Join up at Ghostnote.net, an encyclopedia of drum building knowledge can be found there. It is a pretty hardcore place though, if you don't have thick skin or don't like foul language, probably not...

Re: Snare Making

The lugs for all my snares are fastened using Allen head bolts. I buy them by the hundreds from Fastenal.
As for edges, sharp dual 45's are good for resonance. Also shell thickness is important. I...

Re: Snare Making

Industrial strong. The hexagonal threaded tubes are dowel pinned after inserting them with a tight friction fit.
There are hex nuts inlaid into the wood behind the hex tubes. So they cannot be...

Re: Snare Making

I would not lose too much sleep obsessing over the possibility of lug contact or mass affecting the sound or resonance. Most often you would need some pretty serious recording equipment to detect any...

Re: Snare Making

Honestly, if you can see that gap, you have pretty damn good vision.

Making the tension rods line up perfectly straight into the lug is really the whole purpose of the gasket. I build a lot of...

Re: The Orphan Drum Factory II

Timber matching, drum matching is so over rated and misunderstood.
Especially between toms and bass drums. The bass drum is not supposed to sound like a tom, we tune and muffle and pick different...

Re: Help with trying to soundproof shop building

Yes, great outline from Wally. I would strongly suggest getting the structure up off the ground, those pyramid shape concrete deck footings would probably work great. I have a well built room in my...

Re: Snare Making

There will barely be any noticeable gap over a 30mm span, I don't think any lug makers do any contouring. You may just want to use some type of gasket between the lug and the shell. A lot of stave...
