Re: IEM Questions

I really love my IEM.

But I have to warn everybody to not use them without a limiter.

Feedbacks happen all too easy, or even worse because its a very transient signal, somebody knocks over a...

Re: Famous drummers you have met

I mixed a concert with Jojo Mayer on drums.
So I got to talk to him a little and thought he was a very nice guy.

The funny thing was, I had no idea about how famous he is and although I mentioned...

Re: What has been your best drum score?

I got my beloved Black Beauty LB416T for 450 in absolute perfect condition and with guarantee.

Re: Drinking and Drumming

I cannot play at all once I had only a glass of wine.
I don't even feel it but my playing suffers immensely.

I'd rather stay hydrated to keep up good focus.

Even coffee has an impact on my...

Re: Funny ways to count off songs...

If its some kind of bop head or similar It might work to sing the melody of the last or up to the four last bars of a tune while snapping your fingers on 2 and 4. I've done this at jam sessions when...

Re: Blisters On Fingers From Drumming...?

I used to get blisters alot when I started playing, also due to a terrible grip that was taught to me for some reason. I was taught to hold the stick at its very end with a grip that involved a...

Re: Using overheads live (in small clubs/outdoor areas)

Here is a great tip (at least I think so) when it comes to micing a drumset with one OH and one kick-mic.

Re: Best purchases you've made for drums.

Custom molded hearing protection with in ear monitoring (that also has a limiter!! very, very important!)

Re: Really small gigs - setups

A very small setup I used once was a 12" snare played with brushes and a pedal mounted to a tambourine as a "hihat"

Mind you it was an unamped jazz gig but it worked out very well and was alot of...

Re: Need recording advice!

Despite proximity effect, a "small" sound is often the illness of todays close micing. Does it sound allright in the overheads / room mics? I often find it way better to have more bleed and therefore...

Re: Poll: What is your genre and bass drum size?

Jazz (and funk/fusion)- 22''

If I had the cash for a second set I'd get a 18'' to cover Jazz and keep the 22'' for...

Re: Snare and setup for brushes

That looks like a very nice snare! I will see if I can check one out soon.
