Re: Can you read sheet music?

Boomka, I can read your chart easily. I'm sure if we both played it mine would be a little different from yours but the gist is there. I would be able to get through it without a rehearsal.

Re: Why the "hate" for nylon tips??

Back in the day, when I had to walk twenty miles to school through three feet of snow uphill both ways, I used nylon tips because I liked the definition. Today I use wood tips because I like the...

Re: Last piece of gear you forgot?

At one time or another I have probably forgotten every thing except the shell pack. This includes sticks, bass pedal, cymbals, hi hat clutch, music, I can't remember what else (pun intended). Most...

Re: The power of smiling

My wife used to tell me that, when I was playing, I looked miserable. I didn't believe her until I saw some pictures of myself. Now I put on my "drummers face" and look I am having a good time and...

Re: I'm back. Did you miss me?

Never did. I surmise it is somewhere in South America by now.

Re: I'm back. Did you miss me?

I kind of did. I have a foreign made 4 piece kit that is in pretty good shape(no label). It had a hideous blue wrap and I have been reading all these posts about stripping them. I used a painters...

Re: I'm back. Did you miss me?

Sorry to resurrect an old thread but, I just had my second gig tonight. Though things went OK, I was just a little off the mark. I have more gigs coming up and I expect to get better. The good...

Re: When playing one up and one down...

The snare pretty much is between the toms but a little to the left.

When playing one up and one down...

...do you put the small tom left or right? Why? I normally play a 5 piece and am thinking about going to 4 and would like some ideas.

Re: What's your story about how you started drumming?

I started beginning band in the 6th grade. My school was small so we marched 7th through 12th grades. By the time I was in the 9th grade I was the top drummer which wasn't saying much. We got a...

Re: Great car for a drummer

That's what I use, too.

I can also fit a small kit and a pair of tympani. Unfortunately they have been discontinued so they are only available used.

Re: A Question To Those That Collect A Number Of Drum Kits

It's a question of want, not need. Actually they are a PITA. They are extremely heavy and hard to move around but I love them. I guess that knocks my assertion on it's head.
