Re: Possibly my first serious thread. Sexism.

Absolutely, Madge, I was going to say iceberg as well!

Also, there's a difference between a man calling a woman a "girl" and a woman self-identifying herself with that term.



Again, totally...

Re: Small and easy to transport drum kit

I played a set with the stock heads at PASIC this past weekend and it sounded pretty good- they were tuned quite well. They might not be the best to gig with, and the toms are going to sound pretty...

Re: Possibly my first serious thread. Sexism.

She can try, but I think I speak for all the women on this forum when I say that it's not unreasonable to ask that everybody exercise their right to ridicule the users of "female drummer" or whatever...

Re: Possibly my first serious thread. Sexism.

Also, racism is the systematic use of privilege to disenfranchise those less privileged than oneself- 'reverse racism' against white people is not a meaningful phenomena in white-dominated societies...

Re: Anyone going to PASIC?

I'm going to be there. Unfortunately it'll be the day after Florian's clinic, but good luck on that anyways!

Re: Jojo Mayer

Jojo's project, Nerve, just put out their fifth EP. I really should end up buying one of these because I have very positive first impressions :)

Re: Sonor Players Kit from Sam Ash

The Player kit isn't beech, it's basswood/poplar/whatever..

Re: problems with tremolos on xhylaphone

The important thing to understand is that a xylophone mallet, or any mallet really, reacts in a very different way from any stick. Sticks have a balance point close to the center, or the hands, while...

Re: Jazz vs. Metal video

God, I hate this video. The metal drummer plays the most stock licks imaginable, and the jazz drummer does an actual solo, and somehow this is an amusing parable? Nah. The flipside of this would be...

Re: Snare size for ghost notes

Oh yeah, one more thing- the consensus seems to be that deep snare beds help with offering more snare articulation, which might help with the low volume response Smooth was talking about. You might...

Re: PDP Bubinga/Maple/Bubinga Snare

It's not exactly a Black Beauty, is it?

20 plies, probably very focused and sort of high-pitched depending on the thickness of the plies. Funny that the name sort of implies 2/3 bubinga content...

Re: Snare size for ghost notes

Folks, just because the OP has to play the ghost notes, does not mean that they can disregard the drum design. These things are not mutually exclusive.

The depth does have more of an effect on...

Re: Open Hand technique

I went full ambidextrous, open-handed several months ago, though I haven't been able to do much lately since I'm now in college & don't care to rejigger the drumset every time. Hi-hat height is the...

Re: 20" Bass Drum Dampening? (New Catalina Club)

I'd say replace the UT heads ASAP. I've never heard a good word about them- they're Remo's 'bargain' version of their regular heads, made in Taiwan. And don't worry about the 20" size, it'll sound...

Re: Floor Tom Wingnuts same as Cymbal Stand ones?

My floor tom wingnuts on the Gibraltars are threaded on the inside. I think my Tama was the same way.

Re: Floor Tom Wingnuts same as Cymbal Stand ones?

I think so, but it obviously depends on your floor tom bracket. I know my Gibraltar circular brackets have the same post diameter/threading as 8mm cymbal stands.

Re: Evans EQ Pillow

Velcro strips, my man... velcro strips.

I use mine to muffle the resonant head, not the batter. I've used it not touching either head before as well- just soaking up some frequencies.

Re: New Guru "Tour" series kits - details here first :)

I'd say that those last two at least tell us something... and Guru is not a maker I'd expect to make something bad.

Re: I want to add another small tom

Ta-da. (http://www.amazon.com/Pacific-Drums-DW-Timbale-Chrome/dp/B002AMUQGY) I have the 10" version, and it's, well, exactly what you'd think. Easy to mount on any 9-10.5mm post.

Re: New Guru "Tour" series kits - details here first :)

Yeah, I'm always dropping my kit everywhere when I go to a gig. I get there, I take the drums out, and I throw them onto the stage from the crowd. Then I get the audience to rush the kit like that...

Re: Tom Setup with Tuning

12" and 16" toms is an extremely common setup.

Definitely swap out resonant (bottom) heads. That will make a difference. I find that having both heads at the same pitch is usually a reliable sound...

Re: New Guru "Tour" series kits - details here first :)

To be fair, a lot of that is the Guru workmanship and such- my custom stave kit that I assembled came out around $3000 (about %60 of that was just the shells and bass hoops) and I did not try to save...

Yeah, get some audio!

Are there any sepele kits in the pipeline that we'll see soon?
