Re: Remote hi-hat

I've always kind of disliked playing cross-handed. And I recently decided to go with a no rack toms kit and it just made sense to put the hi hat right in front of me. I had no idea Bruford did this...

Re: Posture as it relates to technique

I've noticed that if I slouch my bass drum technique suffers. I sit with my legs at roughly a 90 degree angle to the floor, probably more like 86 degree angle (when my feet are on the pedals and my...

Re: Bass drum technique...

METRONOME. I tend to practice the bass drum separately a lot. Playing the bass drum parts of songs only with the music works for me.

Re: Heel Up Technique: Bury the Beater or Not?

seems like burying the beater is for grooves that are less busy and require more power . . . like when you're playing a lot of complex 8th or sixteenth note patterns it's kind of hard to bury the...

Re: Speed and stamina for the hands?

I used to play on a pillow. I'd heard that doing that wasn't a good thing. It does build stamina and strength but nothing's ever gonna be better than playing on a drum or a practice pad. Going...

Re: Volume: Birch vs. Maple

Birch is brighter than Maple. We've all heard loud Maples and Birches and Mahogany. The rock tour customs from Yamaha were Mahogany drums and they were very loud.

Re: Hi hat placement

I never liked playing cross handed. I just bought a DW remote hat and since I don't play with rack toms, stuck it right in front of my snare drum Bill Bruford style sort of like what dea describes. ...

Re: Favourite punk rock fills

Wrong. Here we have another thread about "punk" rock music where only the fast is discussed. There's no such thing as a "punk" rock fill. A fill is a fill. I've heard a bunch of cool fills from...

Re: Tama Superstar.............

Birch and Basswood for the outer and inner plies. SuperStar Customs have painted fades and I believe a stain fade. The EFX and the other one are wraps.

Re: Travis Barker

I can't stand him for calling himself a punk. I never heard Joe Strummer utter or write a word about Blink 182 when he spoke or wrote about punk bands of the nineties, etc. I just think those guys...

Re: Tama Superstar.............

I play a SuperStar Custom. I was going to get a Starclassic B/B but the cost to possible damage from playing out and about made the SuperStars look very good. They sound very good too. Very loud. ...

Re: Is this cheating?

Isn't the only way to play quick 16 and 32 notes . . . with a tighter spring so the beater pops off the head better? I'm confused by this thread. There's a spring on the pedal. You tighten or...

That still doesn't qualify him as an expert in kinesology or physiology nor does it vault him higher than criticism and disapproval.

Thanks buddy, it doesn't say anywhere that strength exercises should be a substitute for playing. All that you said goes too.

Another building strength and endurance thread

I've been using this device for years and it really helps build grip strength and forearm strength. It's the Marcy wedge.

Re: Set ups without rack toms

I was wondering if there were no rack tom drummers and beginning to think most on this site were into big kits with toms everywhere and so on.

when Chris Pennie was still with Dillinger Escape...
