Re: Audio gear to practice along to?

I've used recordings as part of my practice since I started drumming in 2003, and it has always been with in-ears headphones. Initially I used a portable CD player - that actually worked really...

Re: Hopeless flamm addiction...

I think that if flams are your thing, then go with it. About 10 years ago I attended a clinic where the whole point of the clinic was to stop trying to sound like someone else, and to start dialing...

Re: Tiki Drums snare building course - how deep would you go?

6.5 is as deep as I'd go for a snare, but only on a metal drum. For wood, the deepest I'd go is 6" - I have a couple of 6" wood snares that I've built and they are great sounding workhorses.

Re: Best way to trigger backing tracks?

One of the churches I've played drums for uses this. We had everything set up with Ableton sessions and I was the trigger man for everything - they'd do little pieces of gaff tape with labels for...

Re: Pre-planned drum fills??

It really depends on the situation. At times, I like the freedom of being able to play whatever fill pattern comes off of my hands and feet at the time, but certain tunes have signature fills and...

Re: Wearing watches while drumming

Just think, for the modest price of just $248,400, that watch could be YOURS!

I'm wearing something a bit more conventional today - this is what I have on right now. (This one can be had for a...

Re: Wearing watches while drumming

Replacing original parts is not always a bad thing - you wouldn't keep running a car on old original parts once they started to fail, and the car no longer ran correctly.

That's like refusing to...

Re: Building a collection

In my endeavors as a drummer, I tend to take a pragmatic approach to things. For example, right now I have two kits - a big kit that I leave set up at my house, and a smaller kit that is currently...

Re: Top Musicians vs Average Musicians

Re: Wearing watches while drumming

5 minutes a day is inaccurate enough that I wouldn't wear it. The worst of my automatics is at +10 seconds/day, which means that it gains about a minute every week, and I reset it about once every...

Re: Die cast hoops

This.

The guy who drums for the wedding band I'm in (I play trumpet and sing) put DC hoops on the Stage Custom kit he leaves on the truck. I know he dropped a chunk of change on them - probably...

Re: Advice for new aluminum snare

I think that the Starphonic line of snare drums is pretty awesome - they just seem to have a handle on how to make some sweet drums. If money is no object, on that list I'd get the Starphonic every...

Re: Top Musicians vs Average Musicians

It's tough in the music business. What you've posted about playing big festivals for tens of thousands of people doesn't necessarily mean you're making any money. My son is in an indie band that...

Re: Anyone here ever lose their "mojo" for music/drums? I'm at a crossroads..............

I still think it's a seasonal thing - a case of winter blues - and once the weather improves, so will the OP's disposition and their passion for playing.

Re: Polishing a turd...

Maybe, but every one I have ever heard has sounded great, and I've heard very few people make the claim that they regretted getting one.

With that in mind, I'm the kind of guy who typically likes...

Re: For you drum re-storers/re-builders

If it's actually lacquer, the crack can be sanded out, and lacquer applied over it, and then smoothed and re-polished. Lacquer, unlike poly finishes, becomes part of the previous layer, so "fixing"...

Re: How to play like Eric Harland and others?

Just a thought, but you are never going to sound like Eric Harland. You're always going to sound like you. Why not spend the time and effort developing your own sound and feel? Yes, listen to...

Re: Wearing watches while drumming

I saved up enough money in 8th grade to buy a Lorus digital watch (I think I paid $24) when digital watches were really starting to come into their own (I bought this one in 1984/85) and I've rarely...

Re: Anyone here ever lose their "mojo" for music/drums? I'm at a crossroads..............

It's wintertime - you likely have a mild case of SAD - Seasonal Affective Disorder. Basically, mild depression, or the winter blues. I deal with this. Every. Single. Year. I lose interest in...

Re: Podcast interview: Carolina Drumworks

Jeff, you make some beautiful drums. Wish I'd have gotten to know you a bit better before you bailed out of this area and moved down to NC!

I'm listening to the podcast now - good stuff!

Re: The 8 lug snare drum

To get back to the subject of the thread, 8 lug vs 10 lug snares, I know that the lug count is supposed to be an indicator of quality - supposedly 10 lugs is better than 8, but I think that it is...

Re: Is drumming your career, or do you have a day job and do it as a hobby?

Holy zombie threads Batman! This thread was started 6.5 years ago!

Since then, our young heroine, Lindsay Artkop, has gone on to do some pretty cool things.

She was the 2015 "Hit Like a Girl"...

Re: The 8 lug snare drum

Wow. No. As a trumpet player, I can tell you that a trumpet has great variance in tone and sound depending on the horn itself, the bell material, the mouthpiece, and of course, the player.

Re: Brass snare differences

I wouldn't use those two vids as a means to make the decision on which drum to buy. From my perspective, the drums are tuned differently. There are too many variables at play (IMO) to make the...
