Re: Famous drummers mixing cymbal brands

Not necessarily famous, but we opened for Tantric last month. Their drummer was rocking some Sabian B8's, paistes, etc. Not only mixed brands, but some pretty 'entry level' equipment. Same with the...

Re: Went to Memphis Drum Shop (again)...

To me Ben White has the same celebrity status as the pawn stars guys. I have watched many of his videos, maybe a 100. Would love to go there sometime.

Re: Does independence just click one day?

I envy those who can. For me, the hardest click was when I first started playing the drumset, maybe around 8th or 9th grade and learning a basic rock beat. It was hard and took me about 2 - 3 weeks...

Re: How do you count while playing drums?

Might be weird, but I count primarily with my right hand. As a result I don't swing well, and when I do its on the bass drum. I also have some major independence issues. When counting between breaks...

Re: Tricks for faster set up

I use a 3 piece PDP rack with a 6 piece kit (3 up 1 down), memory locked for major pieces. The cymbal arms and tom mounts are easily adjustable. The only seperate stands or pieces are the snare &...

Re: Told to hit harder

Thanks for the input. On stick size, for most of our stuff I use Zilijian Super 7As, a slightly longer version of a standard 7A. I also have some Ahead Mudvayne Spug 7A's that I pull out for heavier...

Re: Told to hit harder

Everything was miced up. Each tom, bass, snare plus overheads. Guitars shouldn't have been an issue since the cab were forward of the set and at a lower level. The drums were on a one foot riser.

Told to hit harder

So, we did a show last night and some of our friends did the sound, one of which is a drummer and the other is a guitarist in a cover band. Well after our set the guitarist told me I need to hit...

Re: The worst gig of my life

I agree, some of the responses are rather harsh. The reality, it is a personal choice and purely opinion. There is no definitive 'right way' and those will vary wildly on venues and events.

Re: The worst gig of my life

We've been lucky. I've only had to use a "shared" or "backlined" kit 5 or 6 times over the last 3 years but I won't do it again unless I get to see and hear the kit in advance. Last fall was the last...

Re: How Does Your Band Set Up on Stage?

We are a 4 piece, so I am usually at the back, center, or in the corner. The Bass, lead, and Rhythm all sing and are in the front. I don't mind :)

Re: What's on your bass drum reso head?

Did this one up a few years ago. Made from paper printed on a color laser printer. Used the original Photoshop layers and printed them using a program called poster razor. They are glued on the head...

Re: Double Bass Drum Futility

Debated on contributing to this thread.

I feel the op's pain, I too have struggled with double bass since 2000 or so when I picked up my first double pedal. After having already played off an on...

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

Just watched it last night and while I thought the acting was excellent I didn't care for the story. As others have mentioned the conflict didn't make sense and was way over the top. On screen...

Re: Over exuberance - a time & a place?

I would also agree, very reserved, even towards the end. Not flashy at all and fit with what was being played. Btw, loved the 6 piece configuration of your Guru set, it is beautiful. How much do...

Re: What's your story about how you started drumming?

Smells have a vivid connection to my memories. When I read this I could literally smell the inside of my first snare drum. It was a 'new', but cheap no name, made in China (or wherever they were...

Re: What's your story about how you started drumming?

6th grade band for me, would have been 11 or 12, 1982 or 83. A close friend started at the same time and was one of the reasons I picked the snare. Stuck with it from then through the end of High...

Re: Ever shown up to play with a new musician and realized it was a bad fit immediately?

About ten years ago a friend invited to jam with some people he knew. Turned out they were wanting to play music that was 'inspirational' as well as having an extreme political slant. I just wanted...

Re: OCD or normal jacking around?

That was always a crutch to cover my self perceived shortcomings as a drummer. Now that I have been playing very regular on stage for almost 3 years I find myself doing it less and less. With me it...

Re: So...where do you keep your spare sticks?

I also have a small stick bag on the side of my floor tom, makes it easy to recover a stick within 1 measure if I drop a stick. It has a small hole in the top, one of the lug screws is threaded...
