Re: The worst gig of my life

I can and play odd kit configurations all the time.. not that I enjoy it as much as my preferred setup.. but the challenge can be fun sometimes. The weirdest kit I ever played was on a rack setup.....

Re: Can you fix this tom?

Those are all great suggestions.. I've always suspected the shell, but maybe the hardware too.. haven't tried changing the hoops yet. Lot's to experiment with.. thanks for the ideas!

Can you fix this tom?

I'm stumped.. sometimes kits have one tom that's a clunker, and in my case I have an old Rogers kit that I'm bringing out of retirement, not top of the line, but still the kick and 2 out of 3 toms...

Re: How to politely and professionally quit

As mentioned.. don't burn bridges. eg. a really good bass player got a bad reputation for suddenly quitting bands by storming out over some disagreement... just packs up the equipment and leaves!...

Re: The power of smiling

Absolutely.. I know sometimes the tendency is to have a stern look especially if you're playing something complicated or if you're tired... but I try to remind my self to always look relaxed even if...

Re: What makes a pro kit?

I'm surprised by the answers here.. the question is what makes a Pro kit.. not Pro drummer.. there's a big difference in kit quality from entry level to top of the line... and it makes big difference...

Re: Tuning woes

Yes.. 'tin' is what you get if cranking the reso to an extreme tension. Similar to cranking the batter to an extreme.. then it's just 'dead'. I think most drummers use something between the medium...

Re: extreme tom angles and snare tilt

I saw a jazz drummer in NYC that played that way - except the snare was up higher around his waist on an extreme angle. He had to cross his left trad hand 'over' his right in order to hit the snare!...

Re: Tuning woes

Google the Drum Tuning Bible (http://eric.frap.net/sa/bible/profsound.shtml)... a ton of GREAT info in there. Very organized and thorough - I've relied on that guide for years.. it works!

Re: Is "pocket" what you play or how you play it?

Yup! eg. If the drummer is constantly behind the beat it can sometimes make the band sound like it's dragging - and not in the pocket. There's something about smacking the beat in just the right...

Re: BPM recall ability

Bermuda speaks the truth! I use familiar tunes as well as signposts.. my favourite example is "Brown Eyed Girl' at 150bpm. I'm sure we've all had it burned into our heads!
I started doing it many...

Yes those are lot's of fun.. the inversions and sextuplet parradiddles are what that Benny Greb fill might have been inspired from.. they create a cool phrasing over the bar depending on the...

Re: Help with Benny Greb Fill!!!!

Nice fill! 'Just sextepluts' plus some Benny Greb magic Lol! The pattern reminds me a bit of playing paradidles as a triplet or sextuplet phrasing. With foot substitutions and toms thrown in.
Nice...

Re: Let's Talk Snare Drums

How do you like the Oak Custom? I was looking at one the other day online for 250$.. it looks like it has a 14 x 7" deep shell and is in great shape. Worth taking a look at?

Re: Another *&^%$# Bar Owner

Re: Let's Talk Snare Drums

I've played a lot of snares in my time.. one thing that always surprizes me is the mythical qualities given to the Supraphonics. I played a 5 1/4x14" Supra in high school in a variety of bands.. and...

Re: Who uses Moongel?

Lot's of Pros use it or other damping techniques as just another tool in the box to dial in the sound they're after. Used sparingly, I find it can help focus the sound a bit. Cut into small strips.....

Re: Is it OK to talk about the movie "Whiplash" yet?
