Re: What drummers need for a gig

A full set of heads (they can be used). A carpet. A back up pedal. Spare drum keys. These are necessities to guard against catastrophic events. Cases are great, hard or soft they will make your job...

Re: Sonor Prolite shell thickenss

My kit is super thin 5 plies, 5/32" which is 3.3 in mm. It is extremely good for hard rock and metal. Where did you get the idea that thin shells are not good for rock?

Re: What's My Next Move?

I've rented a rehearsal space for twenty years. It's part of doing business. I also built a sound system of my own (no relying on others). Subs, mains, monitors, P.A. for front of house, P.A. for...

Re: groove vs chops?

Have you ever seen a drum major that couldn't play a trap kit? Some people know how to play every rudiment perfectly and some know how to rock the "@#$ out of a drum set. And then there are some that...

So smart. Good luck with that.

Re: Does anyone actually like big finales?

The big drawn out end to a song is cool in its place. It s not "unmusical", as you are literally playing music on musical instruments. If you can find a better way to get two or three thousand people...

Re: Bass Drum Dimensions

Thanks. A 22" is probably the most versatile, it has more "punch" than a 24" and it's louder and moves more air than a 20". The 15" is an oddball. I get a raised eyebrow every now and then when...

Jeez Billy! That dude has chops! I guess I need to write a solo and impose my evil double bass plans ;=)

Re: Bass Drum Dimensions

Think of the bass drum like a speaker. A 10" woofer simply cannot move as much air as an 18" woofer and an 18" speaker cannot move air as quickly as a 10". When you hear people say a 20" drum is...

Tell me a better way to work double bass fills into a country set and I'll give it a try.

Re: Looking for help choosing a pro level drum kit

The less expensive DW Collectors finishes are satin oil and finishply and they both look stunning. All the sets you've listed are great, but maple is my wood of choice. Don't let anyone here fool...

Re: A new project

I'm loving the song choices. Ambitious material. The reason cover bands get such a bad rap is that most musicians are hacks. They chose the lowest common denominator for a set list and then do it no...

Re: The side snare

Yeah it's basically just a way to get more dynamics out of certain parts and have another snare sound for certain songs. It's by no means necessary. I could get through a set without them, but my...

Re: Ringo should have performed at Candlestick Park not just Paul

This is the last event ever at Candlestick. It's not a Beatles tribute. Coincidentally the Beatles played their last gig there. I fail to see why Paul (who is on tour) needed to have Ringo (who is...

Re: The side snare

The idea first started kicking around my head in 96 after watching Taylor Hawkins (pre Foo Fighters) playing for Alannis Morrisette. He was using three snare drums to mimic the variety of snare...

Sorry. I hope I didn't insult you. I forget sometimes how many experienced and professional musicians I'm speaking with at any given time here at DW. And the humor in your post was not lost on me....

Re: Bad Auditions

It's actually more for tax purposes. I'm in the process of doing it (for the third time) because my current project is beginning to show a profit. When checks for performances are issued (especially...

Re: Bad Auditions

My advice is to let this one go. Maybe they will call, but at this point do you really want them to. Bands aren't only about ability, but about relationships as well. Sometimes feel and technique are...

Re: playing along with stuff

Welcome to DrummerWorld and the 21st century. IPods work excellent and are pretty outdated so perfect for the guy who's behind the times. Seriously though if you have a computer you can store all of...

Re: Tama Starclassics!

Re: Priced to High??

Yeah but for resale value Made in Taiwan is not good. The 18" kick is a price killer too. I didn't mean to offend. Just giving you the straight dope.

Re: Priced to High??

Maybe a little high. $1100 for three used drums, made in Taiwan, with an 18" bass drum. You have to look at it from a buyer's perspective. Plus it's a down market for everything.

Re: Anyone ever try to poach your seat?

You may want to think about getting some new friends. When I look at successful bands the drummer is very often integral to their success. The other members regard them as such. Watching interviews...

Re: Another "is this a good price" question (DW Collectors)

I hate to disagree with you Matt, usually your advice is spot on, but $900 for a 4pc DW is just not realistic. 3pc maybe if they were completely thrashed. And old DW kits were not Camcos with a new...
