Re: Ever forgotten your hihat clutch?

I'd almost relish the challenge...almost. Always keep a spare in the stick bag.

Re: Simple 3 mic recording - opinions please

snare and floor tom were the standouts for me; I will echo what others have said about a little more attack on the kick. All in all though this relatively simple recording process should allow you to...

Re: Have You Heard of Brady Drums?

I did swap out the heads to a coated Evans G1 and Hazy 300. In theory they're the Evans equivalent of the stock heads (Remo I believe). I'm of the firm belief that stock heads are of lower quality...

Re: Low Serial # Vintage DW Kit - Pic's Inside

Really makes you reflect on what the craftsmen who built those drums were thinking as they made them, considering the magnitude of what had transpired that day. When I learned of the events in real...

Re: Last piece of gear you forgot?

Bottom, tripod part of the throne. It was an out of state gig so I found a Guitar Center nearby and picked up the only decent throne they had, a Pork Pie for almost $200. Figured a good one can be...

Re: Bassist Mike Porcaro Dies

Another great talent left us way too soon. A local bass player I used to play with has this dreadful disease. Let's hope a cure is found soon. Rest in peace Mike Porcaro.

Re: New Guru snare drum :-)

Congrats on that new snare Eric. As well-crafted an instrument as you'll ever run across. Enjoy many years with that one.

Re: Basement temp and humidity

With a humidifier set between 50-60% humidity your drums should be just fine. All of mine are kept in my unfinished basement here in the northeast. Have been for years. No issues whatsoever. I do...

Re: Sakae Eco Friendly Snares

Re: Tama Starclassic B/B pros - Need your help

Didn't experience that with the kit I just parted with and mine endured 18 months of steady gigging, 4 times per month. No idea what it could be.

Re: Drums and beer at my first ever band tryout!

Wow, this gang of tea-totalers on DW is definitely not like most musicians I've been around. My last gigging band was an Irish band. Enough said. Before that I played in a variety/party band. Crowds...

Re: DW Fans testers users, questions for you

So I own a DW Collector's Series kit, among high end kits I own from Tama and Pearl. I also own two, soon to be three DW snares. Bang for the buck? Look elsewhere if that is your goal. DW makes great...

Re: What was the first concert you went to????

Jefferson Starship Freedom at Point Zero tour, circa 1979/1980. The legendary Aynsley Dunbar on the kit. They were terrific but the opening act, Twisted Sister (a club act at the time) stunk.

Re: Lugwig Legacy. How good of a deal is this?

If those drums are in very good condition, truly a 9 as advertised, that's a great deal.

Re: What makes a pro kit?

Big difference between a professional kit and a professional's kit. The two are not always one and the same. I agree with most posts about what makes a pro kit (choice hardwoods, quality hardware,...

Re: Have You Heard of Brady Drums?

Love my Brady 6.5 x 14 wandoo snare and my 7x12 cedar wattle, though the latter took a lot of work to get dialed in right. Brady block drums are very thick, resulting in great projection, quick...

Re: I thought this was strange....

I have a few drums that are quite finicky, perhaps even possessed. The biggest offender is a Joyful Noise soared copper snare. I can spend a half hour with this drum to get it tensioned/tuned to...

Rich Redmond, drummer for Jason Aldean. Not that I thought he "sucked" but I let his animated gyrations behind the kit prevent me from fully appreciating what a monster player he is. While most of us...
