Re: Floor tom too low

I hate to suggest this, but are you certain the drum is correct side up? I've seen it before....

Re: Things others drummers do that annoy you?

This is off the original topic, but labeling music as 'death' or 'life' is ridiculous. Labels mean nothing whether referring to drums, people or a church. Death metal, metalcore, hardcore or...

Re: Recording Toms

Good question, but I think the true drum tone comes from the relationship between the 2 heads. Since the sound is being generated on the batter side, I think that's the best place to capture it as...

Re: Calises and blisters!

I don't agree on the bad grip/technique argument. Some people just blister & it is indeed a gradual process to get your hands accustomed to the abuse that our hands take. Regardless of technique,...

Re: Anyone else ever experience a "white-out"?

I've experienced this as well. I've nearly panicked when I 'snapped' out of it and had to catch my brain up to what was going on. It's probably where the saying comes from, "I play drums, but drums...

Re: Risen Drums

One of my friends has a Risen kit that he custom ordered & although they sound good, the hardware left a lot to be desired. The chrome started chipping off the lugs & he had to eventually get all of...

Re: Taye TourPro

I play weekly on a maple Taye kit & it sounds awesome. The drums are super easy to tune & it's overall a real solid kit. I would not hesitate to buy a Taye kit...

Re: just thinking...

The threads are a bit different, but thanks for the input.

And go ahead & crucify me if it's in the wrong section.

just thinking...

I was sitting behind one of my kits the other day & started looking around. I noticed that I have MANY different manufacturers represented in the mix, and this is only on a 4 piece kit. I'm curious...

Re: Deluding ourselves

Best advice in this thread so far imo. Although I always strive to be solid, perfectionist thinking rarely breeds success. If we were all perfect, we'd be drum machines... lifeless and dull. It is...

Re: Gretsch Renown Snare

I agree with the other post. I have one now & it is my main <wooden> snare. It really took me a lot of trial/error to dial it in, but once I did it sounds great. I get a lot of compliments on it....

Re: Drum kit classifications in reference to the bass drum size

My kit is considered a 'fusion' kit based on tom sizes even though it has a 22" bass drum.

Re: What are your Drumming Prejudices?

My comment was about moongels on a Remo pinstripe head which is a two ply head with a muffling ring. It's my opinion that there is a tuning issue if you think that is necessary. I do agree that...

Re: What are your Drumming Prejudices?

1. Excessive muffling, especially in a bass drum
2. Duct tape holding the snares to the reso head to prevent rattle
3. Cymbal stands with no sleeves - metal to metal is never good
4. Moongels on...

Re: Secondary Snare

These guys all nailed it. I have a cheap little PDP piccolo that I crank down real tight. I use it during breakdowns/intros that typically have a 'drum machine' feel to them. I would guess that they...

Re: Drummers who play too much!

I think you said it perfectly. I have friends that everyone thinks are "great drummers" because they can solo like mad fools. Put them with a band and ask for dynamics & they look at you like you...

Re: Tilted Toms Good/Bad

Like many said already, it's all about personal comfort. One thing I always do is to play my kit with my eyes closed. I will know very quickly if the kit is setup to my style.
