Re: Snare Cord - What Knot?

Use a square knot. It won't come undone.

Re: I went away and everything changed!

Bienvenidos! Lots has changed. I took about 15 years off (total) before resuming 15 years ago. There's a lot more to choose from e.g. drums and materials, cymbals, heads, sticks, hardware, thrones...

Re: Shoes and Gloves

Used to play barefoot or in socks, but after a serious foot infection a few years ago, I try and wear whatever shoes I'm comfortable in-which most of the time are some Danskos leather clogs, or Ecco...

Re: Importance of a good drum throne?

The above was the best investment I made, since I resumed playing nearly 15 years ago. No brainer. Buy one.

Re: Bass Drum Volume / Running Through PA

I've incurred that problem from time to time, playing a 20" x 16" Yamaha MCAN with an EMAD batter and the stock Yamaha reso, which has a 4" 4 o'clock port. I get great sounds in the basement with my...

Re: Adware?

Mercifully, the browser redirect has gone away, though I was positive I wasn't the only one who experienced this.

Re: Head Suggestions 2010 Maple Custom Absolute Nouveaus

Thanks Lefty. Posted in another thread area as well (Gear/Heads & Sticks) and the Super 2s were suggested, as were the Response 2s and even a thicker (12 mil) one ply. I like the idea of a thicker...

Re: Head Suggestions 2010 Maple Custom Absolute Nouveaus

Thanks Dutch. I've heard they are good heads. There are just so many nuances from the varied heads and manufacturers that it gets too expensive experimenting.

Do any of you have any head suggestions re: the 2nd rack- 9" x 12" and 14" x 14" floor? These are 4 year old MCANs. Am looking for a bit less ring on the larger toms, as I play a lot of old school R...

Re: Does anyone else hate splash cymbals?

Hate? No. Would I go buy and use one however? No. I just don't quite "get" them, and on the kits I've played which have had them, I've had a tough time substituting them in place of good 16-18"...

Re: The Muscle Shoals Sound

Caught it on one of our PBS stations a few weeks ago. Agreed, very well done. My initial thoughts were that wallets were taped onto snare batters during recording sessions there, e.g. Wilson Pickett...

Re: lessons for lefties

Rod Morganstein is a lefty and has plenty of instructional stuff online. I believe they are sponsored by Vic Firth and Evans. I like watching him, but as a right handed drummer, I do have to...

Re: Sensitive drummer?

As a young (junior high) percussionist, we had a band director whose mantra to us was that "drums were to be felt and not heard". Good God we used to laugh our asses off to that, but the longer I've...

Re: Tommy Igoe - State of education

Tommy's correct. We're ALL much more visual these days, not the least of whom are the younger generations. I can't speak for everyone, but having gone thru a fair amount of "Stick Control" and...

Re: Drumming Idiosyncrasies

I'm with you on these. My wedding ring is Navajo and handcrafted from silver, which is a relatively soft metal. So drumsticks, mic stands, cymbal stands, etc, do not contact it while on a gig. I...

Re: How to get 70's funk drum sound?

Agree with most all of these. While you crank the wooden snare's batter head up, go ahead tape your wallet down onto the head. Remove the bass drum's reso head and stuff an old moving cloth in there,...

Re: Starting Over After Twenty Years

Re: What drum/cymbal/piece of gear have you owned the longest?

"Haskell W. Harr Drum Method - Book One: For Band and Orchestra purchased in 1966"
Goodness, I had that book, years ago. Don't have it any more, though I do have the GLStone "Stick Control"

Re: What drum/cymbal/piece of gear have you owned the longest?

Still have my basic '65 Ludwig club date set and a 1966 18" Zildjian Sizzle cymbal, though the rivets have long since been removed. Both of these items have been retired since I purchased a new set...

Re: Hearing protection?

Have had these for a couple of years. They're pretty comfortable and have inter-changeable
filters. Not too expensive, either.
