Re: Best way to tune a Powerstroke 3 for Bass Drum?

Same way Bonham did it. Toms and Kick tuned much tighter than people would imagine. It is the sound out front (Where the audience will be that matters). What we hear from the kit is totally...

Re: The Best Hard Rock/Metal Snare!

The Ludwig Supra phonic or the Ludwig Black Beauty, but DW makes some excellent snares (All the big players do). I just like metal snares for everything.

Re: Ringo's Drumming: Harder Than It Looks

Even if Ringo walked into the studio one day, sat down and ripped When the Levee Breaks and then moved into Achilles Last Stand, you don't think Paul would have ever let that out? Not with Paul's...

Re: Ringo's Drumming: Harder Than It Looks

I have never seen the drum phrasing written out like you did, I like it. Steve Gorman talks about Ringo a great deal. That Ringo were his building blocks for how he plays and every pattern and fill...

Re: Songs that make you do a double-take when you sit to down to play them

That has always been my experience. As long as I had the groove down and the song sounded good, this was all that mattered. I do not play double kick, but have covered songs which were and I do my...

Question for the Professionals

Just out of curiosity, what happens or does anything happen, when a drummer endorses and gets paid by let's say a cymbal company, but he is out using cymbals from another brand?

I watched a video...

Re: Groove Is King

Of course you did not invent what is basically playing for the music. Ringo did it, Bonham did it, even Moon did it. I absolutely, 100% believe the young drummers today have lost that ability to...

Re: Led's Latest Page

Ok, they will never get together and play again, like they did in 2007. Maybe Jimmy thought he had something to prove, after the wacked years of the 80's and that awful "No Quarter" album.

I know...

Re: Songs With Bored Drummers

I have always heard Bonzo did not like to play "The Ocean" or "Black Dog"

Charlie Watts (a legend) sounds bored on several Stones songs, not mentioning names. Other times he sounds brilliant,...

Re: Did you ever notice.....

This is because they are deperately wanting my advice on cymbals, since I know it all. Joking!

I actually have noticed more people on the gear forum and more on the cymbal forum amongst that.

Re: Seeking Advice On Song To Learn

You are 100% correct, cannot believe I messed that up!

My biggest mistake was buying a kit from a local shop, could have got it for 1/2 anyplace
2nd big mistake was buying a Zil ZBT+ and then a Zil Edge Series...

Re: Are endorsement deals worth it?

Listened to 1 song and the guy's playing seemed good: He was playing for the music, showed some tech skills, and a good groove.

Re: Led Zep Vs Spirit issue

The Blues are the cornerstone of Rock n Roll

Robert Johnson is considered the Father of the blues (Keith Richards/Clapton and Page are quoted saying this, as well as Muddy Waters)

Re: Are 13" toms obsolete?

I play 13/16/18/18 w/ 22 kick. Love my 13, I use my 12 as a holder for beer and cigs when I practice. Ringo 24/13/16, classic.

I would prefer to have a 24 kick, 13 mounted tom, a 14 and a 16 on...

Re: Tips on drum rooms?

I am no studio engineer, so no real suggestions, except the 70's cheap wood paneling is an absolute classic. Congrats on the new house!!
