Re: Band PA ownership options - thoughts, experiences

Where are you playing that you are providing the PA on tour? I have toured half of this country in various forms of tours and have never brought our own PA. In fact the only reason our band even owns...

Re: Band PA ownership options - thoughts, experiences

My band uses option A. However, in our case the singer owns the PA so its a little different. We all have our gear and he has his. His "instrument" is the PA. so he bought it and maintains it like...

Re: What exactly do I have here?

Ahh, makes sense. Thanks John. I guess I will just put them on a FleaBay auction starting at $1 and see what I get.

What exactly do I have here?

I picked these three toms up as part of a large purchase from a studio going out of business. I basically got them for free, but they are absolutely not something I would use and I hate to have them...

Re: Used Tama Superstar

I'm with Grunters father. Offer less and see what they say.

If asked what the kit was worth I would have said 400-450, so its priced just about right. I love Tama drums and the Superstars are...

Re: Dilemma in choosing a drum kit. Please help!

Sorry, I didnt realize you were not in a place where online shopping is an option.

You are right. Dont buy B8 cymbals, you will be disappointed. I have played all over the world and cymbals are...

Re: Dilemma in choosing a drum kit. Please help!

I am a Tama and Sabian fanboy, so my answer is pretty obvious. However, he is asking WAY too much for that. Meridians are like $700 brand new and as low as $500 used on ebay. The planet Z and Wuhan...

Re: New to me Acrolite

I actually just picked one up yesterday with a bunch of other drum gear I got at a studio closing. Its the black galaxy version. I have never played an acrolite, so I am very interested in giving it...

Re: Copyright Infringement

I love XM radio, but the fact that only 9% of its collected revenue is paid to the artists it makes its money from is sickening. That # has to increase, and maybe this ruling is the vehicle by which...

Re: Talking salespeople down in price

The "worth" of anything is purely subjective. Even on Craigslist I wont haggle. If the price listed is what I am willing to pay, then I will pay it. If its too expensive I wont bother to call. I dont...

Re: Tour buy in: yes or no?

It is $1200 for the whole band. I think I agree with you about booking our own tour. Its just the allure of getting to play real clubs with all of the ammenities that makes the buy in seem so cool. ...

Re: Tour buy in: yes or no?

I almost feel that way myself about the whole thing. I grew up playing in hardcore bands where everything was very DIY. The idea of paying to play with a bigger band was sacreligious at the time. I...

Re: Tour buy in: yes or no?

I knew this question would come up. And I'm not really sure how much I can say. Both bands have current radio hits and played second stages at major festivals this year. Not arena shows, but should...

Re: Another Frustrated Drummer....

Being a native of San Jose, I can tell you that we feel the exact same way about LA. They need to just cut off the state at the grapevine and give everything south of that back to Mexico.

Re: Another Frustrated Drummer....

I am surprised no one else has said it, but don't try to be a square peg in a round hole. If the music isn't for you and you are struggling to play it, maybe its not the right band for you. I am sure...

I have done what you are about to do, and if this is your tenth tour, you have more experience than most. Most of my advice would be things you have likely already figured out. The no budget tours...

Re: How Far for a Paid Gig will you travel?

I did a tour a few years ago where we drove for 10 days and probably averaged less than$50 a show. So I dont think I am a very good person to ask this question to. In the end it is a very personal...

Re: Drumming with repetitive strain injury (RSI)

I dont suffer from RSI necessarily, but 20+ years of playing with rock, punk and metal bands have taken a toll on my body. I have a torn rotator cuff in my left shoulder, a bursa sack in my right...

Re: Covering a song with band above my skill level (Opinions on hitting the "key" points)

I would keep the 16th note feel and ditch the accents if you cant pull them off. I cant listen to it at work, but I know the song and I feel the song really rides on that funky kind of beat. As long...
