Re: Can you turn an "intermediate" kit into a "pro" kit?

Re: removing drum wraps for staining

If the set is a very inexpensive set in black, white, wine wrap, maybe some other colors, many of those wraps are put on with tape and tend to pull off rather easily. Other wraps are put on with...

Re: Fantastic Peter Erskine video

For years I began finding drum magazines same ol', same ol'. Then along came a Peter Erskine interview. It was like the sky opening up after days of rain and fog. Just a wonderful and very wise...

Re: For those who play at church or not.

Compared to this http://youtu.be/eLqTZ07ja7g I would say your example is one of - "What was he thinking?" The guy was not with the program and that was the most obvious thing whether he was...

Re: For those who play at church or not.

I am reminded that playing music in a church service, is just that - service. It isn't about me. It isn't about my drums, acoustic or electric, it's about serving and blessing a congregation with our...

Re: For those who play at church or not.

AMEN and Amen. :-)

Re: custom stave snare finally done

I'm curious about the darker blocks. Why are they stained?

Only a minor and slight detail but, you might consider lining up your name plate screw slots the same for a close-up shot -...

Re: 10 ways to sound like Ginger Baker

A big, major influence when I was young.

His statement(s) - Some may play faster. Some may play more technically but, nobody plays like me - made an enormous impact on the way I thought about...

Re: Buck County Drums

I actually made a stave snare out of pine. It sounds pretty good. I am determined to someday make an entire stave set out of Spruce.

Re: The Drum Set As Melody Instrument

My first exposure to a melodic approach was as a kid listening to Ginger Baker. Later I was introduced to Max, and certainly Tony's approach to melody was unique. I heard Jeff Hamilton play Night in...

Re: Bison Drums

Hm. The 13" just 6 lug? I have always read good things about Bison in the last 30 years. But, man, just 6 lugs to crank down a 13"? I make my own with 10 lugs. No way I'd use a 13 with just 6. Even 8...

Zickos, do you play your usual two tom setup in front of and right of your snare, or left and right of the snare center? That would matter as to wear you leave a tom in a position you are used to...

Re: Drums as an investment?

Aside from Pearl players with collector's wallets (should the value of that snare rise in years to come), how many others out there would be interested? Especially would that be the case with snare...

Re: Q Drums Vs. DW

Of course, I've been making my own drums for 25 years but, after 50 years of drumming I am looking at hardware and peripheral stuff way more than shells and hyped marketing. I know...

Re: Kickport, does it really make a difference??

Before I spent money for the KP I decided to make my own out of stereo speaker port tubes. I used 6x6 tubes. My first try was on a 20x22. I was skeptical but, it did actually promote more low end on...

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

The film is not really about drumming at all. Most drummers would see the mistakes in the editing, as well as technique issues and all. Jazz lovers might not be very impressed because the movie...
