Re: career advise

My ancestors worked in construction. They all had to move allover the country for where the work was.
I'd think its obvious a pro anything has to do the same - baseball player, actor, forester,...

Re: Best shuffles?

True indeed, but 'luck' is mostly 'chance'.

Re: "Projection" of drums

I don't really think its language. A logarithm of a measurement, or of its ratio to anything, is still a measurement. Otherwise (sadly) we could not have awarded the Who in 1976 as the loudest rock...

Re: Is the drummer population aging?

Different world. Most youngsters stay indoors for many of their preferred activities. More getting together to hang in a basement for some video games rather than blow some smoke (literally and...

Re: "Projection" of drums

I think of Projection as ultimately a measure of loudness, i.e. decibels. Think of two materials, but same head/tension, struck the same force.
The tom made out of solid birch, all other factors...

Re: Best shuffles?

Give Burton Cummings' ' My Own Way to Rock" a try.
A burning fast shuffle with Jeff Porcaro on drums.

Re: Classic kits that sound... horrible.

40+ year old heads!?...on the upside, a true testament to the pure strength and longevity of Mylar. Kudos to the material scientist who invented it. Mind you, perhaps calfskin can last long.

Re: What bass drum is this?

That last pic shows 3 re-rings. Typically older vintage drums have only 2 re-rings, one for each edge of the drum, not one in the middle.
3 re-rings is typical of 1960's Made in Japan (MIJ) copies...

Re: Ed. Thigpen.

Super clean, very nice. I love how they are all huddled together.
Stupid question - do all/most jazz guys use a 7A, or sticks thinner than 5A?

Re: What bass drum is this?

The upper T-rod is the only vintage Gretsch thing I see.
I can't tell of any interior silver paint from that pic but look for a paper badge in there.
Looks like a lot of replacements. Nice wrap and...

Re: Please help - is this bearing edge normal? (Picture attached)

^+1

That's quite a gap. I can't imagine any counter or glass is that warped over such a small distance, so it must be the drum.

Re: Anyone ever play in full drum enclosure?

Thanks. I went to church (with pews, altar etc.) the 1st half of my life and the term was never used. The pic shown did look like a studio.

Re: Anyone ever play in full drum enclosure?

I'm missing something. Is a 'sanctuary' a new name for a church or place of worship?
It does look like a snake aquarium.

Re: When the band you're auditioning for,..

On the upside, why would you want to play for a band that you thought sucked anyway? Now you don't have to decline an offer in a band that sucks.
Its all reached equilibrium.

Re: Kenny Aronoff with John Fogerty

Sounds like a great day, from a dip in the river to a Fogerty show!
If you read Kenny Aronoff's book you'll see he is on planes pretty much almost daily, sometimes twice daily, getting to/from gigs,...

Re: Well this is humbling: Hit Like A Girl, Bonham edition

Or ask Buddy Rich at age 8 in Vaudeville instead. He turned out OK I think.

Re: Anyone ever have GOOD experiences answering a Craigslist band ad?

Yes. Last band I was in, and all went well. We only disbanded because the female singer had a baby. They gave me a songlist, told me where to show up, audition, got a call next day, no flaking....

Interesting thread, but you seem to have taken a rather haughty stance here. You wanna play for peanuts with some blues guys, thats great, your choice, and you deem it a pure one. But a group of...
