Re: Why I Never Collected Famous People’s Autographs

I also agree that the memory of the time I have had with famous musicians is much more precious to me than having their signature. Having a chat, sharing a laugh or gathering insight will always be...

Re: Sorry - this just had to be posted!

That will look stunning when all finished up. That wood texture is incredibly intense and beautiful.

Re: Red Gum Stave Build

Well just to give everyone an update, Australia post has incorrectly delivered my parcel of drum parts and have told me it could take up to two weeks to relocate the parcel, if at all.

Re: Do you own (or want to own) both acoustic and electric kits?

I was at a gig last night and the drummer happened to be using an electronic kit. It is an annual festival near where I live and every year I can remember the drummer has always used an acoustic.

Re: Do you own (or want to own) both acoustic and electric kits?

I have got a stage custom set, and a roland with a td9 brain and mesh heads on all the drums. I have had my acoustic for 6 years and electric for around 3, and I use them both equally today.

Re: Red Gum Stave Build

Next round of photos.

I have since squared the edges of the drum, cut the bearing edges, and put the first coat of poly on.
I was lucky to have a slab of granite lying around, so I glued some...

Re: Red Gum Stave Build

The wood was dried for about 6 months since it was cut. It was a bit risky to build the drum due to any future warping/shrinking, however I was too excited and couldn't wait any longer. I also spoke...

Re: Red Gum Stave Drum Build

So the staves are 16mm deep, 57mm wide on the outside edge, and 165mm deep. The finished drum is to be a 14"x6.5". Angles on the staves were 9 degrees either side, and the final diameter of the drum,...

Re: Whats a respectable practice time For a beginer

I think you should guage yourself by your aims. What do you want to do with drumming? pub gigs? recreational/hobbyist? Pro? For recreation i would say 30 mins to an hour a day will do you fine. If...

Re: Do I Need A New Drum Teacher?

Yep I agree with everyone else here, 4 years is not enough experience at all. I consider myself a decent drummer but would not consider myself a great teacher, and I've only played 6 years. Many...

Re: Isolation heaphones help

I love my shures. Do a great job of isolating and very clean and clear audio production too. Come in various price ranges based on driver specs, all have the same decibel reduction/isolation. Very...

Re: My new Mapex MyDentity kit

Those gibraltar one legged snare stands are great, rock solid quite surprisingly and more room for pedals. Less flexibility. Nice kit too
Any chance of a vid or soundclip at least?

Re: Periphery drummer Matt Halpern leaves Mapex for Yamaha

Yamaha doesn't seem like the kind of company that drummers go with for heavier styles of music. They are definitely one of the top drum companies, but most drummers who choose them play lighter...

Re: Goosebump Songs!

Yes, I forgot this one. We played a version of it in big band two years ago, the end of the drum solo and the build up to the end was just so epic! I loved it :)

Re: Goosebump Songs!

Yep, although it doesnt do it for me personally, comfortably numb is one I hear often. Music is a very powerful thing. Imagine a party or a movie without it. Possible yes, but as good as with? Never.

Re: Accidentally hitting rims and sticks while playing

I reckon the best way to not hit rims is to get as much precision in your playing as you can. I think gavin harrison is a great example of this. The black spots on his coated heads have a 1cm...

Re: Goosebump Songs!

Very cool, I wonder if you can ever listen to a song so much that you lose this effect. I reckon for some songs that feeling will never go away. How it would feel to be able to write a song like that!

Re: Dating band members

I would say so, haha.

Hope it works out. I would say if it doesnt work out, it will most likely end in the parting of the band.

How many sticks would you need being stored?I think Something that held a few pairs of 5B's would be fine for me, but then to be able to accomodate brushes at the same time. It depends on the gig...
