Re: Does anyone else hate splash cymbals?

I love the idea of splashes and keep buying them, discovering that my style of playing has absolutely no use for them, and selling them again.

For awhile I thought, "Ooh, I can get some nice...

Re: People Who Count Off The Song At A Different Tempo To The Song's Actual Tempo

Actually, I do that - but for writers, via a little website you can access HERE (http://tvwriter.net).

Come and visit, rhumbagirl, any time.

Is it okay to put that link in this forum? Hope so....

Re: People Who Count Off The Song At A Different Tempo To The Song's Actual Tempo

Oh crap. I shouldn't have said anything. This is very, very far from playing with the Doors or Led Zep.

It's embarrassing. The band was a local band in Chicago. The singer got a record deal and...

Re: People Who Count Off The Song At A Different Tempo To The Song's Actual Tempo

Yep, I definitely was noodling on drums. Thought it might get me yelled at, but I was 16 and didn't care. Didn't know it would get me kicked out. That I did care about.

Re: People Who Count Off The Song At A Different Tempo To The Song's Actual Tempo

Ah, sounds familiar, but I don't dare comment on it. My waters are hopelessly poisoned. I'm a guy who was kicked out of band in high school (for noodling) and 2 years later, in college, was in a rock...

Re: People Who Count Off The Song At A Different Tempo To The Song's Actual Tempo

You've got to do whatever makes you feel best about the situation. I wouldn't presume to intrude on your psyche.

But I definitely know what I'd do. Depending on how much tequila I'd imbibed, I'd...

Re: People Who Count Off The Song At A Different Tempo To The Song's Actual Tempo

The free jazz group I play in is all originals that began as noodling and then got titles. When one of us calls out a title everyone knows exactly what it is and we always begin together without even...

Re: People Who Count Off The Song At A Different Tempo To The Song's Actual Tempo

I had a similar experience to rhumbagirl's last weekend. A guitar player and bass player who've played together for years had heard about me somewhere and asked if I'd be interested in joining them...

Re: Weird Question about - Grommets

Quite a challenge, friend. I'll keep you posted on how I'm doing. (Not about to tell anyone that the longest I've kept that going so far is...8 bars.)

Re: Weird Question about - Grommets

Yeah, it was a mindset thing. I was so busy thinking "grommets" that I never searched for "vents." Until, you know, I did.

How's this for a testimonial: "Drummerworld took my brain right out of...

Re: Weird Question about - Grommets

Thanks for the suggestions, everybody. Since I'm a legendary "extreme tightener" in my family, I'm loathe to get into any heavy, um, turning.

But armed with new understanding I did another search...

Weird Question about - Grommets

As in those little metal things that encircle/plug into the airholes of our drums.

Over the past few months, two of the toms on my DW Collectors kit have started making clicking noises when...

Re: Heads for DW Performance rock kit

Coated G2s brought my DW Collectors kit to life. They make it sing. So I'm thinking you couldn't go wrong with them for the Performance series either.

Re: Letting others borrow equipment

Interesting observation, coming as it does with absolutely no knowledge on your part of whom I hang out with.

OTOH, they are all in showbiz, and we all know what "those people" are like, so you...

Re: Letting others borrow equipment

No friend, not even the closest friend, who's ever borrowed any of my drumming equipment, has returned it. "Can I use this?" is there way of saying, "Can I have this?" and my "Yes" always has seemed...

Re: 1962 Ludwig Super Classic need help identifying

Don't want to stray too far off the topic, but I think it's weird that there was a Super Classic, a Buddy Rich Super Classic and now, I discover, a Barrett Deems Super Classic.

Re: 1962 Ludwig Super Classic need help identifying

I'm wondering about the snare. My 1958 Super Classic - well, actually the "Buddy Rich Super Classic" had a different throw-off. Like this one:

Re: Do you call it a kick drum or bass drum?

I always thought of kick drum as a UK term and bass drum as US. But I haven't a clue why.

My youngest daughter is 28 and pretty damn hip. She calls it a kick drum, so - now - so do I.

Just got My New-Old DW Collectors Tom - At last!

After years of searching, I've finally found a 7x8 tom to go with my 2002 Candy Apple Red lacquer DW Collectors kit.

I love the sound of DW 7x8s but not the price of a new one, and it wasn't until...

Re: What is your main snare you gig with, and your back up snare?

Ditto on the Pork Pie Big Black. Back-up is a Ludwig Black Magic 5x14.

Re: DW snare owners

I use Evans coated G2s on all my Collectors toms. Made a huge improvement in the sound.0

Unless the improvement was really from moving them into a bigger, wood-floored room.

Anyway, FWIW, I...
