Re: "Projection" of drums

I know this is not a technical forum, but if anyone cares about technically what's going on ...

First- decibels are not a measure of anything. They express a ratio compared to something else...

Re: "Projection" of drums

Re: At which point do polyrhythms stop sounding cool and start sounding academic?

Correct me if I'm wrong here ... but a polyrhythm is a rhythm that uses multiple rhythms at the same time, regardless of the time signature.

Re: The longest wait?

Not to say it is the case here, but back in my manufacturing days I had customers bitching about long delays only to find out that their dealer was on credit hold and did not actually place the order...

Re: Getting ear impressions for IEM

Every piece of electronic gear makes some amount of noise as well as being able to output some higher level of output before it goes into distortion. The distance between that noise and the beginning...

Re: Getting ear impressions for IEM

Re: Check my logic and correct me if necessary.

Think of the 8 or the 4 as the scale on a map. Might be an inch = 10 miles or an inch =100 miles. But in either case the distance from Boston to New York is the same.

Here’s from the wiki page....

Re: Check my logic and correct me if necessary.

Re: Forum Views Drum Gear vs. Forum Views Drum Technique..

Re: New bass drum hoop finishing

Wood expands and shrinks not with age, but with changes in humidity. But with a bass hoop you would be covering all of the surface so there's no way for moisture in or out. But I have no issues with...

Re: Why Do Most Compact Kits Have 14" Snares?

I was using a 13” snare with my compact Whitney Penguin kit. I made an interesting discovery. Having only ever used 14” snares before I realized that the difference on one inch meant I was...

Re: Best badges in the business

Very small ones. I wipe the logos off my cymbals and drum heads and would remove them from the drums if they didn’t leave marks.

But wait, with no logos on my drums other drummers wouldn’t know...

Re: Theory: Nobody wants anything new

So with respect to drums and drumming ... what is really new? Drum colors? Shells an inch taller or shorter. Cymbals with a little extra lathing? These are small incremental improvements. Paradigm...

Re: T rods on bassdrum batter side at bottom vs floor tuning issue

Other than looks, I see no advantages in having T-rods over standard rods. I always change them out.
