Re: Music lover at war with the student ...

I practice whilst watch the TV or movies.
It turns off the chattery bit of my brain.

Re: How to choose myself a snare.

Ludwig LM400 or 402 is a great place to start.

Re: Does anyone else do this? Home practice approach

It sits on carpet, as does the tom in its case- doesnt seem to move around much.

Does anyone else do this? Home practice approach

I live in a terraced house in central London so not able to set up my full kit.
I've taken to using a practice pad with the rack tom in its soft case positioned where the kick drum would sit.

Re: Identical Snares/Different Sounds.

One piece of wood will have a different resonant frequency than another bit of wood even if they are cut from the same tree.
The same is true (although to a lesser extent) with metal.

Every part...

Re: What have you forgotton to take to a gig?

It wasn't a gig but I once learned a set for a mates band who neglected to tell me that he wanted me to play bass rather than guitar.

I dutifully learned all the tunes and turned up to rehearsal...

I don't think you have anything to worry about.

Re: Suggestions Needed for Electronic Setup

I'm not up on the prices in the US but in the UK you can get a decent V Drum kit for a roughly equivalent price if prepared to buy used.

Re: Suggestions Needed for Electronic Setup

There are a lot of affordable V-Drums kits.

Seriously, buy used.
You can get some very good bargains & then grow the kit as you go.

Re: Playing multiple different tempos at the same time with different limbs

You should work this up and get going on it.
It can be your 'thing'.

Personally, I can't see much point in doing it.
As Luke said there are many, many other things to be getting on with first.

Re: Offered a gig, don't know what to do!

Yeah, fair enough.

Again, only speaking for myself, I don't put social stuff before music stuff, esp paid music stuff.
I guess it comes down to how much you want to make a go of the covers thing....

Re: Offered a gig, don't know what to do!

I can only speak for myself but I always take the deal on the table rather than turning it down for something that may or may not turn up down the line.

Re: 24x16 versus 22x18

Ok, cool.
What sort of tonal change is there with drilled versus undrilled bass drums?



Ok, I think I get it.

Thanks to you both.

Re: 24x16 versus 22x18

Helps a lot- thanks.
Can you tune a 24" up higher and get a similar amount of punch to a 22"?
Or is it all down to dampening.

Really appreciate the assistance.

24x16 versus 22x18

Hi ppl,

I've been wondering about the difference in tone between 24x16 and 22x18's?

I know there is a lot of variables but assuming the exact same drum manufacturer with the same hardware what...

Re: Best purchases you've made for drums.

Lessons are what has made a big difference to me.

Also, our sofa.
The pillows on it are great to practice on.
