Re: Gretsch Renown - thinking about buying

Indeed it is, though don't be fooled by the image which makes them look grayish. TE drums look a lot like piano-black wrapped drums when only ambient lighting exists. The grain comes through when...

Re: First time buyer advice

Yes. Return to the idea of turning the L's upside-down, and spend $10 on memory locks (http://www.amazon.com/Gibraltar-Replacement-Hardware-diameter-memory/dp/B00JKU0URO)so they don't slip.

Re: Tastefully Overplayed

I love their work and agree that it's overplayed, but I'm looking for a different dynamic. If I were forced to categorize it, I'd put it in the "Busy Rhythm" folder. Artistically, it was a good...

Re: Tastefully Overplayed

Indeed. It certainly is not my intention to start a thread with conflict. I was just looking for similar material.

I had never given the Young Rascals consideration before, but will give their...

Tastefully Overplayed

Not sure whether this belongs in "Drummers" or "Drum Technique".

I'm a big fan of drummers and albums that have copious amounts of tasteful overplaying.

I've been listening to The Knack...

Re: Bad Auditions

A few months ago, I went drum shopping. I played on a Signet. It was awesome. Instead of purchasing immediately, I went out and spent the next 2 weeks playing on other kits. and buying something...

Re: I need help picking a drumset!

My advice.

Short term. Get another used Tama tom for under $100 (http://www.ebay.com/itm/Tama-Silverstar-Tom-8-X-10-Trans-Redburst-Gloss-NEW-/171407453687?pt=US_Drums&hash=item27e8ae2df7) and put...

Re: Yamaha or Pearl?

All brands (Yamaha/Pearl/Gretsch/Ludwig/DW) make perfectly nice kits at this point, and brand loyalty is about as important as getting the color and look that you want. If you're not going to...

Re: Drums/Percussion in "Strong Enough" by Sheryl Crow?

I agree with STX.

Bass sounds like a big old undampened Ludwig like The La's used to use hit with a felt mallet. I've always kinda liked that sound.

The mics are listed in the OP. It's one of those $200 multi piece drum mic kits (http://www.musiciansfriend.com/drum-microphone-packages/digital-reference-drdk7-7-piece-drum-mic-kit) like a PG6, but...

Re: Recording help

http://media.rolandus.com/manuals/BR-1600CD_OM.pdf

The DR-C100 requires phantom. The other mics don't. That said, it sounds like the gain is set too high(thump/static).

Typically, you can...

Re: THE GOOD SNARE THREAD

Thank you for putting that together. It's extremely well done with pretty equal tunings, levels, and playing.

The video leaves me wondering. I hear a distinct difference between all three...

Re: Gretsch Renown Maple 16" Floor

Welcome to Renown Hell!

Man, I sympathize. Now you can see why finding an identically lacquered catalina-maple FT is a serious option for me.

Re: Keeping Time On The Hi-Hat With The Left Foot

Re: Recurring dream - drum related

I had a dream that was afloat in the ocean sitting naked atop an inverted ride cymbal. I couldn't stand or move as my bum was plugging the hole at the bell, and I knew I'd sink if I unplugged it.
