Re: Gavin Harrison here!

Hey there Gavin, care to share your pedal settings such as the spring tension, beater angle/distance and footboard angle? Been trying to get loud, powerful strokes out of the kick drum, are there any...

As with my current settings, the position of the needle of the beater gauge on my pedal is surprisingly a little bit behind the 'factory default', which means my beaters are set a little closer than...

Re: Default beater distance

I read up on beater distance because I felt like I wasn't getting enough throw from my beaters... I like my bass drums LOUD. I experimented with moving it back a little bit, which led me to where I...

Default beater distance

I've been messing around with my beater distance by changing the angle recently. I've seen people suggest 6" which I saw in the forums using the search, and some others saying 45 degrees... while...

Question about spring tension

I've been able to pull off single footed 16ths at 100-110bpm at home with the kick pad using just ankle, but I wasn't able to during a jam session recently with a acoustic kit. I could barely manage...

Help with double bass at the in-between tempos...

My problem with double kick is mostly my left foot, which is really ridiculously weak even though I do use it for hihat stuff pretty often. Tempos that are 130bpm and below are okay for me, but when...

Re: Most Common Mistakes, Want to get better

Man I'm 17 going on 18 and I already have some tinnitus :(

My take on this thread:

1. Posture.
2. Playing too many fills.
3. Grip. So many drummer friends I know have weird grips. Not that...
