Re: New drum kit - what to get?

Mapex is an amazing company that is getting a lot of props right now. They have the older "Pro M" series which is great, and the Saturn and Orion series are both pretty awesome. They have a new...

Re: Using new equipment the day of a show

Take both pedals with you. If you have time to mess with it and set it up and get comfortable with the new one, use it. If you don't, or you aren't comfy with it right away, then use the old one.

Re: Trying to get more low end.

I don't know if you're aware of this, so forgive me if this is something you know, but don't expect your acoustic kit to make the same kind of boom that you hear live at a lot of shows or in studio. ...

Re: Help asap ! Gig for 1500 tonight and I have a terrible cold.

Not to sound mean, just honest: Suck it up and you play. Once you're on stage, you'll find it's easier to ignore the symptoms than when you're not out there. There have been shows where I had to be...

Re: your year in review

I hear you about the privileged feeling, man. It's amazing. I had a friend the other day describing to me how they needed a new job, and all they could find quickly was disemboweling turkeys for...

Re: your year in review

By the end of the year I will have played 197 gigs, had somewhere between 20 and 30 recording session, and taught around 40 students. Not too shabby. Also landed my endorsement deal with Saluda...

Re: Everyone tells me NOT to buy a kit with a 24" bass drum! (24"BD owners, please comment!)

I have something I need to add to this thread:

Don't buy the kit in the picture. Period. Why? Because it's NEW! Buying brand new drums is one of the worst mistakes you can make, unless you are...

Re: This Guy is the Best I've Ever Seen!

That's a really cool video, and he sounds fantastic. I actually agree with Thaard about his hand technique, though. He actually does not hold the sticks "properly." Of course, with that said, a...

Re: Gig survival kit

Honestly, in all the gigs I play (just under 200 so far for 2010), I have never needed anything except the following:

- Back-up snare (never actually used, but if the main snare head goes, don't...

Re: Playing for unplugged sessions

This really depends on the style of the music. For instance, if this was something extreme like a death-metal or speed-punk style band playing, you actually do need to adjust your playing style, and...

Re: Do you guys know any....?

Really? We get chants for Freebird so often, we learned it. Now, when we do it (only when chanted for) people go nuts. Like, seriously nuts. Painfully so. And we are a central PA based band...

Re: What do you thin a producer's job is?

I honestly don't know what I prefer. I have worked with all kinds of producers, and as long as they are nice and personable, I have enjoyed it all. If they are jerks, then it sucks.

Re: What do you thin a producer's job is?

I've worked with dozens of producers, and studied many more. In all of that, the one thing I can say for sure is that there is no one definition of a "producer." It varies greatly. George Martin...

Whenever I've done parades, I have always assumed that I would be playing the entire time, whether a cadence or something like what you described. It kind of goes with the tradition of marching...

Re: Do you guys know any....?

Playing in a classic rock cover band with jam tendencies, and got two requests back to back:
1. Ronnie Milsap (old school country artist) or Elvis from the gospel years
2. Slayer or Tool

Re: Great musicianship = Limited access?

I actually think that this trend is changing, at least in terms of the beats that are being used in music. Granted, a lot of them are just drum machines, but if you see those acts live, there are...

Re: My Holiday Epiphany

Hey man! Interesting revelation. I wonder if it will stick, or if you find this is just a phase. I don't say that insultingly or whatever...it's just that I've gone through those moments, too,...

Re: Counting the band in...

I didn't take it as a diss, and I don't usually count when it's just drums that start a piece. I didn't explain really well, but in "I Love Rock N Roll," I start playing the fill, but shout "1234"...

Re: Counting the band in...

Yeah. I'm not trying to be argumentative...just pointing out that for the average musician trying to make it in a local scene, that's probably not good advice.

Re: Double Bass - Who Was The First?

I don't think one person invented the idea. Bass drums were already used for fast notes orchestrally, and I'm guessing that there were a bunch of people around the same time who thought of the idea....

Re: Counting the band in...

Wow, I completely disagree with this. It depends on the band, of course, but all three of those "rules" go against everything that a successful working cover band should do. A band in most club...

Re: Providing a backline drum kit

There's a reason we use the term "house kit" for these festivals...because the house provides the kit. If a festival promoter told me my kit needed to be up there all day, I'd be totally fine with...

Re: What do you think about the DW Drums Logo?

I never really cared until I bought a set. The logo looked childish to me, and that bothered me. I also hate their large lugs...I want to see the drum, not big round circles and a dorky looking...

Re: Do you drum or percussion??

Yes, according to how instruments are traditionally classified, that would be accurate. However, again, certain terms (at least in the situations that I find myself in professionally) mean different...
