Re: So long story short, I'm a bass player now

I think it's common for Drummers to gravitate to Bass. Many of my private students double on bass, and I myself will pick one up and mess around here and there. I even did a gig once on bass, but...

Re: Metal drum mixes without triggers or sound replacement

Here's a link to a song I did, no triggers or sound replacing. What you're hearing is my Recording Customs with little to no EQ done. It's more on the Industrial side of metal, but still heavy.

Re: Sitting at the helm of Pro's

I do exactly what you showed in the diagram.
With my setup, and likewise how I teach others, the Snare is the center of the kit.

My throne is positioned directly in line with it, about a...

Re: Rimshots on die cast hoops

Re: GOOD Craigslist stories?

No too long after signing with Yamaha, 7 years ago, I listed one of my custom kits from the company I was previously signed with on Craigslist. I got a reply from a drum tech I know, and he offered a...

Re: Busted snare side head at gig...spare heads/parts

I always have two snares at every gig so I don't have to change heads.
And I have broken the snare side head a few times. Once in high school I broke the snare side on BOTH my main snare, and the...

Re: How do you know when to crash?

Personally I resist the crash. I mean, I'll do it coming off of a transitional fill (verse to chorus, chorus to verse) that kind of thing. But outside of that I'm rather selective about when and...

Re: remembering a tune

I'm really bad with names, and it often takes me a long time to learn the title of the song. Thus a setlist of nothing but song names doesn't help me. BUT there is a personal reason for this. I chart...

Re: Powdercoating aluminum and effect on sound?

I had my Yamaha Recording Custom Brass done in a matte black powder coat. They effect on the sound was minimal, and I use it on just about every gig I do now.

Re: Los Angeles drum shops

There isn't much in the valley other than the Sherman Oaks GC. Kind of sucks. I would much rather give my business to Pro Drum, but it's not always convenient to get into Hollywood, especially if I...

Re: Putting band name on kick drum head, with multiple bands?

If a band wants me to have their logo on the kick head I make them pay for the head and the graphic. If not they get the generic brand logo. However I do have a couple groups that have gotten the...

Re: Finally! New Yamaha Recording Custom Wood Snares

These snares are going to be magic!
I only wish I had one two weeks ago while tracking a new album that could have greatly benefitted from a deep-ass 8" Birch RC Snare.

Re: Got stage names?

I use my real name, but have the "title" of Living Dead Drummer. Here's the backstory: I was performing for Coffin Case's 20th anniversary show at NAMM in 2016. All decked out like corps come back to...

Re: Ever have a drumming dream?

I used to have anxiety dreams that I was playing with a huge band, like Metallica or something, in a big sold out theatre, and my drumsticks were too heavy. Like, they're normal size, but just...

Re: Lars Ulrich

I actually set up my chinas like Lars while on tour last week. One over the kick in place of a Ride, and one up over my Floor Toms. The gig I'm currently on doesn't require me to use a ride....

Re: Removing a logo from bass drum head?

I use nail polish to remove logos. It has to have acetone in it though, or it won't work.

Re: What killed off Slingerland?

My first kit was a Slingerland. Not sure what era, as I got it used. According to this website, it's late 70's early 80's?
It was a student...

Re: Anyone ever switch your "brand loyalty?" (Mid-life crisis for me?)

I've switched a couple time. Sometimes it was a political move, and other times it was a genuine "fell for another woman" situation.

I grew up playing and only using Zildjian cymbals. For a few...

Re: How important is knowing the songs?

Re: Advice on kickstarting a drumming career

Being a "Pro" starts with attitude and actions. You have to ALWAYS be 110% prepared. Show up early (not "on time"), and stick your ego in your back pocket. Take any gig, anytime, anywhere, for any...
