Re: The worst gig of my life

Exactly. Things happen and then what do you do? How do you respond? My last rider provided me with everything I asked for, more actually. DW Collectors, all 9000 hardware and pedals, it was like...

Re: 14/16/18 bass drum (depth size)

Punchy is one of those ambiguous words that drummers use. Amorphous words that are open to interpretation. A shallower shell should sustain less, but shell mass also plays a part in sustain/decay....

Re: What experience do you have making your own drum kits?

I've built four drums from Keller shells. I'll give you a little rundown of my bass drum build. First you need to chose a dealer to order from. The prices for different services vary a lot, but the...

Re: The sound guy

I never have a bad time with sound guys. I can tell you first hand that knowing how everything works is a pain in the ass. Every time the singer doesn't have a signal or the guitarist can't hear his...

Re: The order of things....

Snare then hats. Those are not the worst hats that you have now. Kick, snare , hi-hat is the majority of what your going to play, so make improvements on those three things first. Snare first then...

Re: Sonor vs. DW

Custom made for the same price as production? On this planet? Another thing, GMS=Keller shells, Spaun=Keller shells, and Pork Pie=Keller shells with a couple of exceptions. Some Spaun shells are...

Re: "Recording Heavy Drums" tutorial by Glenn Fricker

Re: Are you familiar with Jammin Sam's drum wraps?

Oh yeah, the topic. Precision Drum has all the same Delmar wraps as Jammin Sam. They recommend the same glue method as most drum companies use and have step by step instructions. There are a couple...

Re: Are you familiar with Jammin Sam's drum wraps?

The build is pretty easy. Order an 18" Keller shell with edges from one of the many authorized dealers. Measure one of your CX shells for edge to center and center to center lug pattern. Measure the...

Re: How Does Your Band Set Up on Stage?

As much as possible I try to get everyone to set up like our rehearsals. Where they want to get around on the stage is there business, but the amps and proximity to the drums is important. I don't...

Re: Neil Peart

Um.....Guitar Center? Musicians Friend? Zzzounds? I'm just guessing here, but if I owned a 23" bd those are the places I'd look. Where were you thinking?

Re: Ever have a drums finish sway you away from purchasing it?

I watched a video on how to remove the chevrons. Underneath is just a lacquer finish which is much classier (imo). I saw one for sale that was new with hardware, seat and DW5000 pedal for $650, but...

Re: 1st Joint as opposed to 2nd Joint grip

Turn your grip over. Palms down, back of the hands toward the ceiling. Control will move toward the tip of your index finger.

Re: DW Fans testers users, questions for you

Alright, so I just dug into this a little further and I was totally wrong. DW purchased the assets of the KMC music group a subsidiary of Fender. It lists the assets as either owned or licensed, but...

Re: Just got home from a gig and I'm just so bummed

I second the kick in the nuts. My guitarist put his foot on my kick, then stood on it and leaped off. I flipped out on the guy. Like yours, my shells aren't made by DW anymore, forget hard to find,...

Re: DW Fans testers users, questions for you

That sounds like the kit Sonor built for him. It's maccasar in and out over beech. It's a unique set, supposedly the tree used to build it was around 700 years old and the entire thing is made from...

Re: New Pearl masters MCX = Horrible!

+1 Pearls shell is pretty thick. Higher fundamental. They find their voice when tuned up a bit. Taste aside you should be able to get good results from that kit.

Re: Drums and beer at my first ever band tryout!

This response makes my head hurt. It's almost as if you're trying to communicate something. My Irish button must be stuck in the on position 'cause I don't understand. "Alcohol" and "bad for you" in...

Re: DW Fans testers users, questions for you
