Re: Snare Drum Tuning: The Neil Peart Sound

Hey! Can you name or link to a particular song that has the Peart snare sound you want to achieve? I realize you're saying his snare sound is very distinct, but I'm curious if there's a song that...

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

Great question and I look forward to hearing the answers. I go back and forth on this all the time myself and haven't figured out yet what I prefer.

Re: Yamaha Live Custom Oak - opinions?

I've owned my Live Custom set for probably 2 years now. My original alt rock band doesn't gig all that much, but I've probably played 40 gigs on this set in 2 years. I used them again last night...

Re: Rick Allen (Def Leppard)

Glad to hear others say his fills were odd. I felt really incompetent when I didn't get some of those fills right off the bat. LOL

Knowing now that they were programmed really explains why they...

Re: I accept defeat.

That was funny and I agree totally. I too play the "throw 'n go" gigs with several other bands and I have no time or desire to spend alot of time dialing things in. I use coated vintage emperors...

Re: Rick Allen (Def Leppard)

I don't claim to be a really good drummer, but I can "get by" on most songs "fine." With that said, I recently learned "Photograph" to play with some local friends and the whole thing felt totally...

Re: Kickport, does it really make a difference??

I know I already posted this, but I'm with ya. A KickPort can absolutely make a huge difference, but it seems to depend on finding the right recipe of everything (specific drums, heads, dampening,...

Re: Yamaha Drums

Thanks for that summary! That's pretty much what I thought, except I didn't know they are still making the Dave Weckl snares. I assume those are made in the China factory?

I own a set of Live...

Re: Writing with the weak hand?

I broke my right (dominant) hand once and had it in a cast for a month or more. I had to write and do everything with my left hand. I'd never wish that on anyone!

Re: OCD or normal jacking around?

I too tweak the positions of my cymbals and drums fairly often. Usually just at the beginning of a rehearsal or gig, not usually after every song or anything.

I think it just has to do with how...

Re: New Pearl mcx inside joints uneven?

I think I've read about this before and it's normal. I had an MCX maple snare and it was the same.

I bet a little research will show other conversations about it. Mine didn't look bad at all,...

Re: Yamaha Live Custom Oak - opinions?

I've had a Live Custom kit for around 2 years now. It's the black wood finish, which is killer if you ask me. I have a 22/10/12/14/16 set, but usually use the 22/12/16 for gigs and rehearsals.

Re: Yamaha Drums

I'm really surprised they aren't coming out with new versions of things often. I mean, they only have three pro series at the moment, correct? The PHX, the Live Custom, and the Absolute Hybrid? I...

Re: Hearing protection?

I use these at rehearsals and they work well for reducing volume, but not sounded muffled.

They are a bit uncomfortable, though. They make a...

Re: Satellite Dish Anyone?

I'm a Bonham fan, so I go with one of these.

Re: Questions re Yamaha's tight fitting tension rods

Something I do is use a key like this with the knob at the top:

Then I twist the top knob with my fingers until they're finger tight. I...

Re: Questions re Yamaha's tight fitting tension rods

This doesn't really answer your question, but they loosen up after you use them for a while. I have a MIJ Club Custom set, a MIC Live Custom set, and a MIJ copper snare with the Nouveau lugs. They...

Re: Ludwig Acrolite Fan Post

I'm just a regular 'ole hack, but I had a COB Supra and the new Acro reissue at the same time. I chose the Acro over the COB Supra by a large margin, actually.

Haven't had a ludalloy supra to...

Re: Ludwig Acrolite Fan Post

I own the 6.5" x 14" Reissue and it's pretty much the best snare ever to me. I used it in a studio this past year to record a 4 song EP and the engineer kept talking about how great it sounded. I...

Re: A few recording questions

I didn't read every reply in detail, but yes, properly tuned and killer sounding toms may "ring" when you play around the kit and the tom close mics will pick that up. It's quite annoying.
