Re: Drummers that can't tune drums.

I'm totally in agreement with Larryace on tuning for the audience. I tune mine tighter than you'd think too for the toms. I learned this years ago, when I started intentionally tuning my toms higher,...

Re: Drummers that can't tune drums.

I have always found the drum tuning issue to be very odd and confusing. You can talk to 5 different drummers and run into 5 different ways of tuning. I can get a decent sound with trial and error...

Re: Rhythm Magazine/Music Radar review - Guru In-Tense english ash snares.

that's a good review. Congratulations!
I've found often with their reviews, they spend more time on if the drums are in tune out of the shipping box than actual qualities of the drums in question.

Re: More Creative on a Smaller Kit

lol, this topic always goes the same way. The size of kit we individually like is reflected by two things as far as I can tell.

1. Musical style you play. If you are playing metal, you probably...

Re: More Creative on a Smaller Kit

and what's up with using two drumsticks. You have to be more creative if you just use one.

Re: Re-training My foot? My pedal? Both?

as another drummer, who used to play a lot, and then took a 5 year retirement, it takes a while to get your body back to being able to play like you used to and it can be very frustrating. I've been...

Re: The side snare

Re: The side snare

I've never understood the whole idea either. Aside from "Where the streets have no name" by U2, I've never seen anyone use one.

Re: Stripping - drums & fills.

I think it really hinges on the era of music you are playing in choosing the right amount of "tomage". Right around the early 90's when Nirvana came out, everyone dropped down to minimal 4 piece...

Re: First time buyer advice

Nice kit. I think you did well on the deal. Shell packs are all well and good, but adding hardware and cymbals adds up fast if you start looking for decent stuff. You have something to play with, and...

Re: Bad Auditions

yeah, the only real difference was the bass player wasn't there for the audition, but he was there for the actual practice. I suspect it was him that didn't like me for whatever reason. I still talk...

Re: Bad Auditions

to the OP, yup, sounds totally like an average audition to me. You need a bit of a thick skin to go through the process. Don't take it personally, or you will come across like you have a bad...

Re: Pearl Free Floater (advice)

if it's an actual free floater shell, yes. Steel shells were the least expensive, then maple, then brass, then the specials - alum or copper, or anything else.

Hypothetically any 5" shell can just...

Re: Pearl Free Floater (advice)

yeah, a Pearl aluminum free floater shell might go for 150 on it's own. Aluminum, and I think there was a copper one too once upon a time are really hard to find. There was a Tico Torres signature...

Re: Report from the dark side ;)

Yeah, I had a set of Exports that I bought new in 86, and gigged them until a year and a half ago. Did some bigger shows with them too, recorded, the whole 9 yards.
