Re: DW and Gretsch

All may look well from our vantage point, but if you are a Gretch employee... look out. IMO DW will soon be "consolidating" operations. I hope I'm wrong.

Re: Tricks for faster set up

I think less (and lighter) drums as previously mentioned is the real answer.

1. Play basic. Try a one up, one down tom setup. Then find a good crash ride. One to two less toms and less cymbals =...

Re: The worst gig of my life

Well DMan I guess you have your answer. For some, it's every band for themselves. GIG at any cost and shame anyone who say's "hey, wait a minute".

And, due to the seemingly endless repetition of...

Re: The worst gig of my life

We'll the "pro's" win. No more attitude, foot stomping and petulance for me. I'm selling my kit and buying the finest North American cardboard, (none of those cheap Chinese boxes will do). Pity the...

Re: The worst gig of my life

While touring I've played some very good venues on hired kits that were very different from my own and sometimes with little soundcheck time to futz around with the set up. "Making the same mistakes"...

Re: The worst gig of my life

I think we get your points. Yes, the show must go on, but making the same mistakes over and over is only going to keep you in these crap venues. What some are calling commitment is starting to smell...

Re: The worst gig of my life

I'm with Drummingman. At some point it's time to stand up for yourselves and just say "sorry, that just won't work". Keep saying "ok" and pretty soon most of you will be playing for next to...

Re: New band problems

There has got to be more going on here. You say they can hear the snare on 2 and 4 so how far off can they wander on one beat followed by yet another snare beat ? And as for the bass drum...just mic...

Re: Hi Hat Foot Beats on 2 & 4

I don't know of any on 1 and 3. That just violates my sense of right and wrong. ;)

Re: Hi Hat Foot Beats on 2 & 4

In the mix, the "chic" I get when closing the hat with the foot on 2 and 4 is not a lot of sound when playing rock. Also, I find playing the hat and snare on 2 and 4 to be too basic. So if I'm...

Re: What was the first concert you went to????

Hard to top this as my starter concert. It's been so long ago but I think my first concert was the Beatles at Commiskey Park. We were seated by the 3rd base dugout where they came out. Despite good...

Re: Is it OK to talk about the movie "Whiplash" yet?

Last person in America to see the movie, but I liked it. Good job ;)
However, this is what really happened to the kid..."And you can get this exact cymbal at mycymbal.com "

Re: Whiplash Oscar win - will it spur sudden interest in "jazz drumming"?

Don't bother to shoot the messenger just cross file this in the unpopular opinion thread but sadly I don't think the movie can spur much sustained interest in jazz drumming. Jazz just isn't as...

Re: Over exuberance - a time & a place?

Guilty of the crime as charged, but that's what it's all about. I am so jealous of the fun you're having. You played well, the audience loved it, and everyone is having fun so don't go getting all...

Re: What's your story about how you started drumming?

The details of my life are quite inconsequential ... Very well, where do I begin? My father was a relentlessly self-improving boulangerie owner from Belgium with low-grade narcolepsy and a penchant...

+1...just listen and play what you hear. This is pop-rock not high school orchestra. Treat it like that and you'll sound like my sister on the piano. (Not good)
