Re: A Great New App: DRUMGURU...check out...

I am not getting sound with the sample pack on my IPad. Do I need to use head phones/ear buds with this app or do I have a problem with the download?

The show was FANTASTIC!! 100 degrees in an outdoor venue and you guys still put on a very high energy show. To play with as much energy as you do for close to 2 hours in that heat, wow, I...

Re: Drumshell aging

Lucky you! The raw material costs to make a kit the way i'm thinking would be $100-$250 per drum depending on the size.

Re: Drumshell aging

First off, on the topic, I am positive that my 12 year old DW's sound warmer now than they did when they were new borns. I have no doubt they have different tonal qualitys and have changed.

Re: Drummers who play too much!

Thank You!!!

The "Less Is More" statement has always bothered me. It's such a all inclusive statement that it feels like someone is choking the life outta me. If a songwriter says, "use the less...

Re: Depressing DW Dilemma

I also own a DW kit and believe they are overrated. I mentioned this to some local DW supporters and now they laugh and sneer at me, oh well.
I could have had a sweet Unix kit for what I paid for my...

Re: What system is better?

I have a DW 25th anniversary kit that I recently dis-assembled all the drums to clean and wax them. The gaskets have rubbed the finish off. I found other flaws to the drums that are...

Re: The great 8 debate

Re: Got my first pro gig!
