Re: Now this is what I call (linear) grooving!

Absolutely! I do the 12-10-15 layout all the time, though me being me, I take off the 10 for my regular setup and have the weird ambidextrous thing ;)

George needs to give my damn tom layout back, he'll make me look bad ;) ;) ;) Great playing. Fun lick.

Re: Gretsch walnut maple Zig zag stave snares

They're quite thick based on the other Gretsch stave models I've seen. You'd likely get more tone and dynamicism from a thinner drummer with lower-mass hardware- I know we have Guru (obviously) and...

Re: Sonor-king of the micro kits?

Dang, that sounds good in that video. Definitely works for that music IMO.

Re: Help with color choice

Either would be great in my opinion. Both have been used many times, though bright maple hoops would bring a nice, 'showy' element to the drums. Up to you!

Re: Sonor-king of the micro kits?

Did you get a $50 discount on it? I'd be even more tempted for that price than the $450 it's at right now.

Re: Converting a marching snare into a floor tom

The sound would probably be served better by getting some less heavy hoops & hardware, but I think you'd also have good results by taking out every other rod and just using the six like you describe...

Re: Options under a thousand?

I agree with KamaK- if the essentials aren't there, they're much more important than the actual kit. (Oh, and let me suggest that "a nice throne" should ABSOLUTELY be on that list. get a roc-n-soc,...

Re: Mesh head on Snare

Not necessarily. I've been using a Remo Silentstroke head for concert snare practice for a while now, and it's very good. Just a bit soft, but it can also be tuned tighter or looser to adjust the...

Re: Help with color choice

They look pretty nice for a $40 kit. :) Hopefully the sound can match up!

Re: Mesh head on Snare

Great for you!

The snare drum is named after the wires on the bottom, which are called "snare wires", appropriately, thus one would "turn off the snares". :)

And yeah, I think that would be a...

Re: Bass drops off an ipad??

I'm guessing they're talking about using a bass drop in a metal setting, not an electronic one. You can hear an example at just about 2:18 here (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aZnoBtePDbY#t=136)....

Re: Can you practice buzz roll on a drumpad?

The QuietTone is good. I've been using a Silentstroke head on a little mini timbale to practice concert snare for a couple weeks now and it's fantastically quiet as well as offering pretty good feel....

Re: Mapex Saturn vs Premier Genista

Yeah, the last two versions are walnut/maple. I've heard that the "Saturn Pro" series which was before those two had basswood in it which is probably a bit different sounding than the hybrid shell,...

Re: Mapex M birch or Tama Silverstar Laquer

I'd call them equivalents. Unless you can go try a Silverstar and think "woah, this sounds much better!", I'd stick with what you have. Maybe treat yourself to some new heads :)

Re: The side snare

I can't believe I forgot to mention Snarky Puppy. Larnell Lewis kills it with the two snares in this performance: "What About Me?" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fuhHU_BZXSk)

Re: Yamaha snare sound?

That sure is a lot of ring. Pretty basic sound, though, a G1/Ambassador would be conducive to getting that ring, and both heads sound fairly high-tuned. Rimshots are a must for that, in my opinion. ...

Re: Some forum members dropped in today :)

Ah, interesting! Those lugs did remind me of the older kits you folks used to make.

I think it's safe to say that I'm going to be impressed by most any Guru bass drum given the trend... :)

Re: Some forum members dropped in today :)

Looks like a wonderful time! That segmented ash bass drum in the Q3 recording... dear lord, I could use that.

I wonder what the bass drum in the first picture could possibly beeee :)

Re: Yamaha snare sound?

It could be tuning, heads, hoops, snare wires... there are a lot more pertinent variables than the brand :)

Re: Stick angles

That's usually where mine are relative to the lugs :) I think it's more of a product of the rotation of your wrist- i.e. German grip, wrists near-flat to the floor, you'll have more horizontally...

Definitely, definitely have someone with a microphone say your band's name clearly. Maybe if you have a small banner or something that's easy to set up.

Speaking from my experience, I'll buy an...

Yeah, the ADP-30 will leave you another 'slot' so you could mount something else on them in the future as well (or mount both toms off one stand, just make sure one of the stand's legs is point...
