Re: More Ludwig Signet porn

I *am* hoping to get both size kicks. I did not realize they *do* have an 8" a la carte.... hrmmm.



I'm not complaining, I just made the point that in some of the gigs I play, I need a less...

Re: Do you plan your fills?

Neil was a big influence on me for many years and so I also treated a lot of my fills as a hard-and-fast written part when it came time for me to start writing music with an originals band where I...

Re: More Ludwig Signet porn

I have been looking very covetously at the Signets since Bo lined up his purchase. We have been chatting elsewhere about the finishes -- while I love the blue finish (kind of a vertical counterpart...

Re: Pearl Sensitone Snare (14x6.5)

I've not played the maple Sensitone, but I have owned the previous version of the 5" bass and played the 5" aluminium shells. They are solid drums and have great sound. The aluminium one is basically...

Re: The first bar "settling in" period

Sure can happen. I know there is usually an eternity between the first downbeat and backbeat of a song, as if everyone's hoping we land as a unit on the "2" (especially at jam nights). From there,...

Re: I like cheap snares

One of the best snares I ever owned, bar none, was the cheap import Supra knockoff I played for years. I bought it for $75 in a hard case. It was steel, not aluminium; it had eight lugs, not ten; and...

Re: "You're a drummer? Oh can you play..."

I like gdmoore's answer. I do try to accommodate and encourage people to like drums and drumming for what they are. Having said that, I try to make it clear to most folks (if I'm sitting behind...

Re: What Snare did Joey Jordison use in 1999-2000 ?

Looks to be a lower-end model -- the wide spacing of the lugs indicates it may even be a student steel model. Without a clearer shot of the lugs ID is difficult. There's also the center bead, but...

Re: What makes a pro kit?

I think almost any drum has the potential to move past its marketing label with care, tuning and a skillful playing approach.

How many of us have lauded the Acrolite, which has been and continues...

Re: Hi-Hats: Tight or loose????

I used to prefer mine extremely tight, like the cymbal wouldn't wobble at all if I were to open the hat and strike it like a crash. But for the last ten years or so, I have moved to rubber clutch...

Re: For those who play at church or not.

I agree with a lot of the points in the article, and also in the thread.

Yes, electronic drums could be a great way to tame a lot of the issues caused by live rooms and over-exuberant...

Re: Going to jams and getting my ass musically kicked is a good thing.

I agree with Bermuda and Tony; a jam is where you can challenge yourself, get out of the comfort zone, and really see where your seat-of-the-pant musical instincts lie.

True enough, anyone can do...

Re: Vintage Ludwig

Probably a good move. For that price, you're still talking a few hundred bucks and some serious man-hours to put things right. And who knows what other issues the shells might have if they've been...

It means the morning after, the drum will greet you with breakfast freshly cooked and a big wide smile.

Re: Vintage Ludwig

Interesting.

I would probably avoid this myself, or drastically talk the fella down. Too many question marks.

Re: Vintage Ludwig

Before I get into my thoughts, why do you believe the lugs are non-original? Those all look like 100% original Ludwig Standard lugs to me. These drums would not have come with classic lugs.

Now,...

Re: Tom angles!!!!

When people stop making budget kits with the Pearl-style 7/8" tubes for the rack toms, and/or people learn how to set drumsets up in any way that makes sense, we will stop.

Until then...

Re: My Signets and the gong

When you post the video with your new Signets, the gong must be struck at some point.

Because gong.

Re: Are there fewer demands for a drummer now, than before?

I think it's not a good time to be a musician, period, business-wise. The market is absolutely glutted and there are no real middlemen anymore, as the internet now puts anyone with some basic...

Re: Different kit formats.

I think there are certainly benefits to practicing on the same setup that you're going to play at the gig, but I agree with the previous posters: drummers should be adaptable to a degree. Having said...
