Re: Insurance for my drums...how? who?

Inland Marine insurance. It's super-cheap.

Do you have a piece of equipment that you've used since day 1 and still use it regularly?

Some people tend to stick with what they know in terms of equipment while others seem to trade stuff off rather quickly. Does anyone use a piece of equipment that you've used since day one (or...

Re: Your weirdist gig?

I did one of these. Turned out to be a weird, weird night.


Got booked to headline at a college auditorium (1600+ seats).
Got there early to set up and sound check.
Lead singer never shows....

Re: After 8 years, they are finally home!

Unfortunately not. ;)

Our church dropped some money on a Reverie kit and Heartbeat cymbals; therefore, I have these at home. I'm still on the fence as to whether or not to sell my brown set. ...

After 8 years, they are finally home!

I know I've posted pics of these throughout my time here, but after 8 years of having these at church, I FINALLY got to bring them home.

I can't wait to gig with these again. It's been too long....

Re: Used snares

I've played a lot of snares, and one of my absolute favorites is the Pearl Masters. I love this drum.

Re: Your weirdist gig?

1. Someone's driveway
2. Another house's garage
3. I once played in an auditorium, but the inside was made of brick with no sound-aborbing panels. It was like playing in a raquet-ball court....

Re: Need help with memorizing songs and cymbal crashes

You can always make notes if needs be.

I know I always remember kick drum patterns by vocal patterns. I try to support what's happening vocally.

Some songs require crashing at the end of every...

Re: Gigging with a Ludwig Accent?

As long as it's in good working order, I say go for it.

I made quite a bit of money with my Basix Birch kit when I had it.

Re: Natal drums

A 5-second google search:

The kit features 6-ply poplar shells with a great-looking gray strata wrap.

Re: Stolen Gear

Yes, back in the 1990s, I was 6 hours from home in Chattanooga, TN. I was staying with a friend of mine, and we rehearsed that night, so I took in my kick, snare, hardware, and cymbals. I was...

Re: The 16x14 floor tom

I own a 16 x 16 and a 16 x 14 USA Pork Pie Custom maple floor tom. Both sound great and are easy to tune in my book.

Re: Ever bought a recording just because it featured the kind of drums you have?

This is why two of the recordings were live.

In addition, I don't ever plan on doing this again because of the internet because there are plenty of samples now as opposed to the dial-up days.

This is probably really silly, but I want to make sure I'm not alone.

Have you ever bought a recording just because the drummer used the same kind of drums (or other equipment) that you use?

Re: Drum gear gimmicks that didn't really catch on

As much as I geek out on drum stuff, I'm surprised I've not heard of some of this stuff...

Geez, how much did those vari-pitch drums weigh?

Did the PTS drums just clamp their heads down with no...

Re: HITTING Sticks together Accidentally ?

Practice and slow down.

When I first started, I swear I used to hit everything but the drum heads. I'd love to know how many times I hit the rims those first weeks.

We are not being any more silly than people putting a ball through a hoop with a net on it.

Re: Boutique snare drums-roadworthy?

I think as long as you take care of your equipment, it should be ok. Just use common sense and buy a hard case. Drums are made of plies, so they super-durable. As far as the hardware, it seems...

We call these "wallpaper gigs." We are there, but no one cares. We are just wallpaper...being used to "decorate" the place for a while.

One of our best-paying gigs of the year is like this. I...

I think generally speaking, drum names are just weird...just about all of them. PDP? Sounds like me teaching my kid potty training. Mapex? Tama? Zildjian? Pork Pie? I think they are all sort of...
