Re: Quadrophenia with "Substitute" drummer

Re: SLIDING BASS DRUMS ON FLOOR

Of course.....it didn't slide on the carpet so a large piece of carpet or rug would be just as good. Might try one of those Indian carpet places where they have genuine Fuck-are-we persian rugs...

Re: Quadrophenia with "Substitute" drummer

At least they didn't use Kenny Jones....NOT a Who style of drummer by any means. Too straight (yawn!)

Re: Drummer uses 4 bass drums

I heard that the drummer from Celtic Frost lost his 4 legs in a Golfing accident recently and now uses no bass drums at all. As I once said to a ladyfriend....."come on, would I lie to you?"

Re: Arm pains after drumming

Stretch the arms, maybe checkout YouTube for any suggestions. Also a too tight a grip on the sticks may be a factor in the discomfort.

Re: USING TEA TOWELS ON DRUM SET

I just had a look at some rubber drum muffler thingies, they look thick enough to actually STOP all sound opposed to just deadening the noise a little.

Re: USING TEA TOWELS ON DRUM SET

No so much using the tea towels, just a bugger when I have to tape them to the sides of the kit to stop them flying all over the joint! Gotta look for some sort of skin muffle thingy, living at the...
