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

Period correct washers lol. I wouldn't have guessed that about you Tony.

Do you still have the Yamahas?

Re: Struggling with Renowns

Everyone is different and different things work for different people.

Renown rack toms just don't work for me. They don't suck but I don't prefer them. They seem to work for most people.

Re: Struggling with Renowns

Pure gold Art. Totally agree. This was very helpful, thank you.

Re: Struggling with Renowns

I think it's a diss to the people who know how to tune well and who really need to tune well...to design drums for people who struggle tuning. The nasties are coming from the 5 lugs IMO. I tried to...

Re: Back to the basics

If you're serious, my suggestion is to do your research and find a great teacher in your area. We might even be able to help you find one, where are you in the world?

You are more mature now and...

Re: From 3 up two down to 1 up 1 down

A lot of guys must have their ride where the 2nd rack goes. To me it's no real difference if it's there or over the first floor tom. I like the high medium low approach with my toms and crash...

Re: Best used small drum set?

Re: The gig that you turned down, and it's a good thing you did!

GREAT story Tony. Who doesn't love a good war story? Thanks for that vid with that 15 seconds of your past. Thugs, really? I'm not seeing it. They all look like nice church going folk to me :)

Yes, I hope you don't mind :P

Are you referring to my playing? Punk?

If it's good change, sure. I love good change.

It's the bad change I'm whining about :)

Re: Instrument infatuation

That's cool. Differing opinions welcome.

That statement was born from watching Benny Greb playing a Spongebob set and seeing Steve Gadd swinging on an Ampex tape box.

Re: One Drum Set Vs Several Drum Sets?

I use the same general tom/bass tuning on all my kits. I like a certain sound from my toms. I always go for basically one tuning that makes me happy. I like my 3 toms to resolve. I tune the high tom...

Re: Instrument infatuation

Looks count but 100% agree that it's the sound. That great sound can come from any set, it doesn't have to be expensive.

Actually, yes it does :)

Playing drums...the act of playing drums...it really shouldn't matter what I am playing on...but it does.

Re: One Drum Set Vs Several Drum Sets?

As long as you are heels over head in love with a certain drum make, a shell bank is a beautiful thing. Big fan.

Re: One Drum Set Vs Several Drum Sets?

The advantages for myself of having multiple sets comes down to convenience. One set at home, one set cased up ready to gig, and a set for leaving it at a rehearsal space (if needed).

It's all...

You said you'd appreciate feedback, so I hooked you up.

Re: Playing in multiple bands

The only real problems I had with multiple bands is scheduling conflicts. If you really want to be a pro, your song memory/arrangement memory/drum part memory IMO needs work from what you are saying....

Re: Is this good or bad?

Who knows, if you take the gig, someone pivotal might see you that wouldn't have normally seen you. Everything leads to something else if you keep the chain unbroken.

In my life I've found that...

I don't contest this at all. It really was kind of a stupid thing for me to say.

My apologies.

Re: How important is knowing the songs?

I'd say knowing the arrangement/tempo/key is Job 1. After that, it's all execution. But if you don't know the arrangement, that's a big inhibitor to the execution. I need to know what the next song...
