Re: A Lesser Kit For Gigging?

This is standard practice in my neck of the woods. I myself drag around a kit that is "worse" than my bigger "main" kit. It's nice to not worry about anything.

On rare occasion or for a really...

Re: Help a Dad out buying used set for son.

I broke one by dropping it once. =(

It just made a tiny little chip, but that chip turned into a crack and it immediately started sounding pretty bad.

Re: Help a Dad out buying used set for son.

That's exactly my point and why I'm such a warrior about this. They don't know the difference. You have no idea that you're developing bad cymbal technique and sound literally worse than you have...

Re: Grip and finger length

Might have already been mentioned, but my grip and fulcrum tend to change around a lot as I play. Seems kinda natural to me because for some hand positions or certain parts of the kit I might be...

Re: Help a Dad out buying used set for son.

Fair enough I suppose. I do know and have played some of the good b8 stuff, and the alloy alone is only one aspect. As you may have figured out, my over-generalization is due to the fact that...

Re: Help a Dad out buying used set for son.

You giving out stickers? Or do you have them all on your ZBT cymbals to improve the sound? You must be an endorser.

Incidentally, no it's not the last time I'll be explaining this. ...

Re: Drummers that can't tune drums.

Yea, it's really not that important to me. I can fix that kind of thing pretty quick if they screw it up, and with all honestly, I just don't think anyone cares what my drums sound like to that...

Re: Help a Dad out buying used set for son.

I really didn't see a deal that was that great in comparison to the similar deals I see on craigslist all the time... The same budget could benefit the kid so much more with real cymbals to play. ...

Re: Help a Dad out buying used set for son.

I guess we'll just have to deal with our mutual allergies. I wasn't even talking about me in this response. I see you do this pretty constantly, to lots of members here, not just me. If you've...

Re: A little help from my fellow drummers...

I will only help if you hang around and talk to us for at least 200 posts. I'm not one of your easy survey floozies.

Re: Drummers that can't tune drums.

Honestly, if someone wants to tune my drums for me, go for it. It's really not that hard to fix and if they're that confident, they might make em sound pretty good.

It's still never been offered...

Re: Help a Dad out buying used set for son.

When I see bad advice, especially bad advice given to new players, I like to lay out exactly why it's bad advice rather than just being that guy who says "wrong" and moves on, since that's even less...

Re: How do you warm up your foot without a bass drum pedal?

Just do some warm ups before you leave the house. It won't "wear off" I promise.

Your performance will not come down to how you warmed up, it will come down to how much you practiced and how...

Re: Help a Dad out buying used set for son.

They already started with a budget that is way more than enough.

"high quality" is a weird term... All I'm saying is don't start out with an impediment to sounding good if you can help it. With a...

Re: Help a Dad out buying used set for son.

That's fine to get both, but I'm saying if we actually care about the kids playing and development, go after real cymbals before you buy a second drum kit. It makes no sense at all to keep...

Re: Help a Dad out buying used set for son.

Some people like to use them as effects or alternate crashes, and some people get paid lots of money to pretend they like them or use them. Lastly, a few thrash/metal guys I know literally don't...

Re: Drummers that can't tune drums.

Thread should maybe rather be "drummers who don't tune the way I like to tune" because even JAW is honestly a valid sound just as anything else is. Comes down to preference.

Re: Help a Dad out buying used set for son.

To be a bit of a broken record, I do not agree. Those stamped crap cymbals not only don't sound good, they don't teach you how to really use cymbals to get all the different sounds, because they're...

Re: Help a Dad out buying used set for son.

That's simply not helpful information to the OP, though. Rather than confuse the issue by selectively naming the very small amount of B8 pies that aren't garbage, I just made a generalization that...

You're not recording, right? Just "monitoring" direct output from the computer?

Re: Hopeless flamm addiction...

What an eloquent way to put it.

Totally agree. You can get so much mileage out of that one two note "pattern", everything from dynamic alterations to what parts of the kit you play them on. ...

Re: Help a Dad out buying used set for son.

Do not buy ZBT, ZHT or any supposedly "student" level cymbals. The best thing a new drummer can do is have real b20 cymbals. The student ones actually hold people back in both playing and...
