Re: Cymbals to compliment Catalina Maple?

Buy cymbals that you like the sound of. It is not recommended to mix cymbals only if you are endorsed by one.

Re: Extreme snare vibration off centre...

I have played a few Tama wood snares, and they have all had a biting tone to my ears. Almost like a delayed snare sound. Not smooth. As far as deep snare beds, I modded my Tama, but it is no...

Re: Extreme snare vibration off centre...

All the Tama snare wires I have seen are like Purecussion ones, that are heavy and have a biting tone. Look for some Pearl or Gilbralter ones. They seem to be more sensitive. Even though the snare...

Re: "Rosana shuffle" how long did it take?

This is a very complicated groove. Just because you have worked it up and got all the beats in order does not mean you know it. Try recording it to a drumless version of rossanna and see how good...

Re: Need help improving rhythm

Listen to the song. Play with it, not over it. Feel the tempo. Playing with a metronome is pretty boring for a beginner.

Re: Crimped Snare Beds?

My Tama exotix snare was unplayable for me, cause it was so biting and loud. I looked at the snare bed and it was virtually non existant. I pulled out some sand paper and made them deeper. It...

Re: looking for an expert in the field of appraisals for this one...

Get money up front. He most likely will turn into an asshole when it's time to pay. At least get a deposit for the cost of materials----just so you won't be out of pocket.

Re: Sound Quality

Hitting a drum a little lighter with a good rebound will give you a bigger sound/tone. But if you are in a killer room, sometimes whacking the drum to death will fill the room with awesome...
