Re: New member looking for advice

My advice is to invest in one or two drum lessons. You should get good advice on what to do from a drum teacher. He will have a drum set that you can try out. Electronic drum kits work good for...

Re: New Yamaha oaky goodness (Live Custom Hybrid Oak)

I love Yamaha drums. The "old" Live Custom drums are some of the best looking and best sounding drums ever made.
I'm sure the new Live Custom Hybrid Oak drums are well made and sound good. But in...

Re: Grip and finger length

Wow !!! I never knew that about Gavin and his grip technique.
If some beginner student came to me with that technique I’d be trying to make him change his grip.

Re: Grip and finger length

I don’t think Drum teachers should be instructing students to place the stick at the first joint of the index finger until they have observed the students hands; And evaluated how the student would...

Re: Help with hand pain, stiffness

This is correct. Drummers need to stay healthy and in good shape. If I did not hit the gym twice a week I could not play the drums. I do weights and the treadmill. Actually hauling around Drum...

Re: Help with hand pain, stiffness

Oh wow! Yeah that makes sense. Good deal. Thank you.
And I’ll bet the top of your hands are flatter now and your wrists are flatter when you play.
Less stress on your wrists.

Re: Help with hand pain, stiffness

Wait a minute! You can't get off that easy. I want to know what you changed regarding your grip. At least try to explain it to us.

Re: Dixieland

Yes, I have played Dixieland music a few times.
Wear a long sleeve white shirt, a sleeve garter, suspenders, a bow tie, a straw hat and provide a nice strong back beat and you are good to go. ...

Re: Maybe I'm done compensating for my height ;)

Bo:
I don't see why there is any question about what to buy.
I think every drummer who has enough funds should have one drum set all in the same color.
With two bass drums, 20" and 22" and a 12"...

Re: Getting my wires crossed?

AND when you start playing at jams and on other drummers’ set ups, the drums will be set up for cross sticks on the hi hat. So you need to learn how to do it. You can modify your approach later...

Re: Impact pain

Your situation is a difficult one. I feel sorry for you. I have been playing drums for the last 65 years. And for the first time the muscles at the base of my thumbs are beginning to give me some...

Re: What is a good drummer

You would get much better answers if you posted your questions on a Guitar Player or Bass Player forum.

Re: Polishing a turd...

If you play gigs, live shows, it's easy to justify a second snare drum. At every gig I play I have a spare snare drum,
a spare bass drum batter head and a spare bass drum pedal.

Re: Well, that escalated quickly!

This is a great advertising idea for the QU desk + Qpad, plus IEM's + ME500 mixers. Do before and after shots.
Show how better sound can have a positive affect on the audience.

Re: The 8 lug snare drum

Well first of all, I have always thought that getting drums to sound the way you want is a big pain in the butt. You can't change the sound of a drum on the fly like an electric guitar. And a...
