Re: If you could educate the public about one thing concerning drumming/percussion, what would it be


I’d like to point out that just because one is unable to decipher what the drummer is doing, it doesn’t mean he isn’t doing it. I love when I catch a drummer lay down something so...

Re: dealing with deep cut snare beds?

I just thought I'd give a quick update in the event someone may be interested in the future:

Re: Wow. Really?

Some people don't seem to be appreciating a pretty fundamental aspect of this 'simple' drumming. Taste.
I'm not even a huge Stones fans, but there are tons of times I hear Watts play a little lick...

Re: Both hands on ride bell double bass beat

There will be things you want to play that are limited by our physical ability to actually hit the things. This sounds like one of them. You either need to move your ride closer to the left, develop...

Metal Snare ID Help?

Hello all,
Anyone able to offer some insight into what brand drum this may be? 14 x 5.5, apparently Chrome. It doesn't match any brand I search, maybe a cheapie.

Thank you.

Re: "New Breed" style melody/system generator

Thanks for bringing New Breed to the forefront of my mind again! I had repressed the long ago memories of struggling mightily with that book.

Re: Why don't pop songs have real drums?

Re: dealing with deep cut snare beds?

Hey guys, sorry for the ridiculously late follow up. I do appreciate your input.

Hello all,
I have a early 50's Slingerland RadioKing snare drum I'm looking for some advice with.

Re: Cymbal sets, drum heads, and accesories for quieting down a monster kit for sensitive rooms?

Rather than forking over a ton of money for new cymbals, consider a thin maple stick with a small barrel tip. You may be surprised how much of a difference that alone can make, if going from a giant...
