Re: Talk about a drumming revelation you've had

Here's a copy/paste of part of my story from another thread:

During my first 22 years of playing drums, I played either at church or in various Christian bands. Whenever I gigged, it was usually...

Re: GOOD Craigslist stories?

We have a lot of drummers looking for gigs on CL. I responded to one guy one time, and we chatted a little bit. I'm pretty sure once he found out I was over the age of 25, he stopped talking to me.

God forbid dropping it, damaging it, and having to replace the bottom hoop.

Re: What drums intrigue you that you have NEVER owned

The Mapex Orion in teal burst has haunted me for years.

Re: Base Drum volume. HELP Please talk me down off this ledge.

First, who's going to carry it?

Second, there's a reason why 18" speakers have such big cabinets. I'm no expert, but in my experience, the bigger the box, the deeper the sound (to a point). A...

Re: Audix I5 vs Shure SM57 comparison video

I'm pretty sure I'll always prefer a 57 on the snare until something is head-and-shoulders better for about the same price. This feeling happened to me whenever I heard an Audix D6 on a kick for the...

Re: I wonder if Neil Peart will ever play again?

He's so quiet and private, I seriously doubt we will hear from him again in terms of playing seriously. I mean, what else do you want him to do that he's not already done a hundred times before?

Re: What drums intrigue you that you have NEVER owned

I don't even know if I'd buy any of these if I had the money, but I've always wanted to at least play a set to see what they sound(ed) like.

In this order:

Sakae Almighty Birch
Tama Bubinga...

Re: Shell Bank

When I bought my Pork Pie USA drums, I wanted a drum set that had a 10, 12, 14, and 16 with a 22" kick although I never intended to play a full 6-piece drum set. In the 15 years that I've had them,...

Re: Deep bass drums

I played a "travel" kit by a high-quality drum maker which featured a 20" x 12" kick at a friend's house. The kick doesn't sound that great IMO.



No problem Larry! However, if you start...

Re: Rediscovering your "other" gear

Every time I take my Ludwig Centennials out, I'm reminded how awesome they sound...especially for a "beater" kit.

Re: What's your favorite cover (maybe limit to 2-3 songs) that your band plays right now?

This sounds like a fun show! I'd love to know your set list.

Re: Deep bass drums

I still like the look and sound of a 22 x 18 kick (I have two of them).

I'd thought about getting my Ludwig "beer can" 20" x 20" cut down to a 20" x 14".

It doesn't look that bad without the...

Re: New kit time :)

I've not played either the Pearl Reference or the Sonors.

If you want loud and punchy, I'd go with Ludwig Maple Classics.

But that's just me.

Re: Ever have a drumming dream?

Yup, I have the anxiety dream of setting up in the middle of a gig pretty often, and when I finally get set up, I can't hit anything because it's drifted forward/away.

Re: How to trawl craigslist for deals

The only person I ever saw with those was Terry Bozzio, but then again, he's had about 5 of everything.

Re: Metal drumming, help me choose between theses 3 sets

My first bit of advice? Buy used, and that way, you can pretty much get anything you want with a $2500 budget.

With that said, here's my opinion:

Saturns first, Pearl second, Tama third.

I...

Re: How to trawl craigslist for deals

Here's another trick you can use to search ALL of CL if you are looking for something specific.

Let's say you are looking for a Ludwig snare drum.

First go to Google.

Then, type exactly this...

Re: Why are drummers/musicians/music-listeners so defensive online?

Because everyone is 10 feet tall and bulletproof online. Meeting and talking in person is a different thing altogether.

I never comment on anything, but when I do, I usually use this...

Re: Anybody like big bass drums?

I don't think I could roll from one tom to the other without throwing my back out or sitting on a stool with wheels on the bottom.

Re: Volume or resonance?

Something that has a lot of volume but not a lot of resonance: A gun shot.

Re: Bd size options / experience

I should probably give a disclaimer that I primarily Americana, country, bluegrass/newgrass, a little rock-n-roll, and worship music. I'm not a jazz/be-bop player in the least bit. I always muffle...
