Re: Shoes with Elastic Bands: Yes or No?

I need to wear shoes- I hate the feeling of a pedal on my foot without one, but that's where any specifics stop. I don't like very grippy soles as I move my foot about on the pedal a lot- how anyone...

Re: Poll: do you double bass?

That'll be me too- I can't get it consistent enough to do more than that and I don't have enough time to practice to get any better at it, My hands are rubbish as well...

I understand where you're coming from Bo, but if you had shut me in a room with a pad for any length of time, you would have turned me off. For me the pad and the teaching came later. I just wanted...

Re: Need a bit of help.

Re: 1 up, 2 down question


I have a full set of toms for my Mapex Saturn from 8" to 16" including a 14" floor. The only reason I can think of for going to 2 floors is looks. Ergonomically it doesn't work for me, it just...

Re: Just curious -----------

If I'm honest, I'm not convinced my snare technique is anywhere near up to it.

I am to rudiments what Giant Haystacks was to ballet!

From my recent experience of a similar issue, Ebay will pay the return postage, although my seller paid in the end.

Re: Whats the weirdest thing you ever broke on your kit during a gig?

The flexor tendon in my right thumb! It went while I was setting up, tightening a cymbal stand joint as I remember.
