Re: Green Monday?

I wasn't conscientiously aware it was Green Monday however I tend to do the tail-end of my Xmas shopping (either for others or myself!) on this day. I take a day off work every year around this time...

Re: No GAS

Funny you should mention A Customs, Sabian, and selling habits. I am currently in the same exact boat! I always sell gear I know I won't use anymore, and that funds the new stuff!

I too have...

Re: Is this statement about 'hired guns' kinda true or not..?

While I agree with you, I think with the previous points made, especially from Bermuda, the range might still be too WIDE or subjective to objectify it.

The way I equate it, is if you were to go...

Re: Gigging Mishaps

Only mishap I've ever had was showing up to the gig without my kick beater. I wound up using the butt end of a screwdriver as a beater head - it actually sounded good!

Re: Is this statement about 'hired guns' kinda true or not..?

You replicated my sentiments exactly. And I'm almost hitting 40 years old, which is by no means OLD but in the grand scheme of things, means that I am at a point in my life where decisions like that...

Re: 42-strand snare wires

I use TAMA Snappy or the Gibraltar 42-stranders on all my 14x6.5" metal drums (brass, black nickel, Supra, etc.) Just seems like a nice pairing to my ears. I have yet to try on my wooden snares -...

Re: Can't take PDP seriously somehow

HA! I agree with both those sentiments.

I own a few kits, one of them the PDP New Yorker bop kit. The 18" kick it comes with is right up there sonically with my higher end kits. While the...

Re: Just Back From a Ludwig Factory Tour... Any Questions?

Re: Dave DiCenso Live Performance at DCP - Video

He has an incredible feel and movement around the kit - I aspire to get my doubles around the kit like he does!

Also the epitome of drummer faces lol... very into his playing indeed.

Re: Putting band name on kick drum head, with multiple bands?

I recommend as well. Great product and service, I have 3 drum heads from them. They also do the "cling" type which might be appropriate for the OP's need.

Fantastic. I have his book Hands, Grooves, and Fills where I think that comes from. Aside from that, that book has loads of great exercises for the pad and the drum set. I find his "P" "DP" etc...

Re: How many trigger your drums live?

Same here! Never triggered/layered but I do play either a full Roland V-drums kit or with my acoustic, use a SPD-30 Octapad for the sfx claps etc.

Re: To rack or not to rack?

Chalk me up to one of them (save for my Roland V-drums kit)!

It largely depends on how many toms, cymbals, and accessories you bring to the gig. I use a 4-piece kit with 2 crashes, ride, HH, and...

Re: Can a very (!) cheap drumset sound ok..?

Yep, sure can!

I've recorded 4 of my original band's albums on a beat-up Maxxim (or might be CB) drum kit my one guitarist has with an Acrolite snare. All Evans heads on them and they sound...

Re: Why the same songs, when so many to choose from?

Yep, that's pretty much how we do it... the band's been around for about 15 years, with me drumming for 10 of it so far. We even have "groupies" (really just common friends lol) that love to see us...
