Re: What will happen to your gear, when you pass?

When I go someday, hopefully not for a long time, my drums and other music gear are about the last thing the wife, daughter and grand kids will be concerned about getting.

Re: In Depth Review of Odery CafeKit

I would look like King Kong sitting behind that thing.

Re: Anybody here watching/bidding on the Ringo Starr auction?

Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay is such a d-bag. Born with a platinum spoon up his rear and acts like it, along with behaving like a child at times. Although he would never consider donating the...

Re: Eliminate Snare Buzz From 10" Tom

I was in shock myself on how well it did work, at least for me. And I didn't use a thick hand towel, just a 14" x 14" thin microfiber cloth and like magic, all buzz is gone. I did have the tuning...

Re: Pet Peeves

For me, its Warm Beer, especially beer that really isn't cold enough being served at a restaurant that I'm paying inflated prices for.

On the music side, I just love being constantly annoyed by...

Eliminate Snare Buzz From 10" Tom

I've always had issues with this and could usually find a sweet spot with the tuning of the snare/tom to cut it back substantially. Although I saw a video the other day on snare buzz and the guy...

Re: How do I

For even less $$$, get a Zoom Q2n $159. I believe it has an 1/8" stereo input jack so you could, for example get a splitter for an iPod or your computer output, sending one to your headphones and...

Re: How do I

The easiest way is to get something like a Zoom Q8 HD video camera which has built-in XY stereo mics. It also has 2 XLR inputs for additional mics. Such as one for the kick drum and another for an...

Re: Cheap Drum Recording

I recorded with two AT2020's for a while and a Presonus Audiobox and got very good results. And remember, "overheads" doesn't imply they must be above the kit. When I used this basic setup, I got...

Re: DW for $23K?

Got that right. It's like one day you're using a $25 dissection kit cutting up frogs then deciding to buy professional surgical-grade instruments and like magic, brain surgery is no problem.

Re: Are those good songs for a beginner ?

I just looked at the first video of the teacher now which isn't exactly up to snuff. The video I originally responded to was this:

Re: DW for $23K?

IMO.....DW makes some very nice sounding and well built drums. So does Yamaha, Tama, Pearl and a few others. My nephew has a set of $$$ DW Collectors and they look and sound great. Are the shells...

Re: Are those good songs for a beginner ?

After seeing the video, my advice is to work on timing, such as simple beats....1-2-3-4 stuff. Play them back to evaluate. Also, loosen up, you're playing style is too restricted. Relax! Work on...

Re: UP$?

UPS has resorted to screwing the little guy to make up for the enormous discounts they need to provide to Amazon. It's really bad for the small biz guy today that needs to ship a ton of goods. It's...

Re: Tama Star Bubinga 6 Piece Shell Pack

Not really....I enjoy my current setup but would like to get something special. Getting older, so why not a second higher-end kit?

Have been thinking about it recently and looked at several...

Re: Room modes and mic placement

FWIW, the most dramatic improvement I recently implemented was using a room mic. And it's not setup in a typical location. About 6' in front of the kit, dead center at a height which is just below...

Re: Ideas on Reducing Volume of Drums

Rockwool insulation will help immensely. But forget about doing the entire basement, just do a 10x10 area or so above the drums. Then setup a doubled draped cube around all sides of the kit from...

Re: Am I drumming for the wrong reasons?

My reason for drumming (again) is that after many years (somewhere around 15 years I guess) I suddenly missed playing. After years of playing bass guitar mostly, one day in February of 2016 I woke...

Re: Can you tell me about this snare drum?

When I saw it, may first thought was the same as Matt's. Stewart drums to use as an example had an identical badge although said Stewart. The strainer was identical if I recall correctly. I had a...

Re: Anika switches to Tama

I just alerted the NY Times that Anika Nilles has switched from Mapex to Tama. So they'll take it from here.

Sorry....just couldn't resist the mild sarcasm.

Re: The Kinks

The Kinks were great. I especially like one of their later albums, "Sleepwalker". In fact, I have an original vinyl which I bought in the later 70's. I'll need to break that sucker out tonight and...

Re: Kick Drum Miking Question

If I placed my kick mic 2" from the reso, it might blow up. LOL! All I'd be hearing would be snap, crackle, pop. Well, maybe not much crackle, but certainly a ton of snap and pop.
