Romain Goulon

The ddrum artist inflation

Does anybody know what the reasons are for so many huge names in metal drumming abandoning their previous endorsement company (and Pearl is the most affected in this respect, I guess) and switching...

Re: Derek Roddy here!

Yes, it definitely helps, because in this case 220 for the feet is still a "very fast" type of speed and consequently we don't have to have additional practice sessions to get up to 300 if we want to...

Re: Derek Roddy here!

Hi, Derek! I guess you're the first voice that I should listen to as far as extreme metal drumming is concerned, so I'm just going to ask you a rather indiscreet question:
are the double bass parts...

Re: Steve Smith

Concerning the topic of using the right stick model for the right musical style, I suppose Steve Smith is a great opportunity to get an idea about it, because he, more than anybody else, alternated...

Re: To cut or not to cut (a hole in the logo BD head), this is the question...

Thanks for all of the replies!
I think I am going to get some kind of a middle ground. That'd be a 6" hole in the front head, as off-center as I can, with some muffling inside the drum, but...

Re: oak characteristics?

Yes, the Yamaha Oak Customs really have a big sound, and a very professional one. And they're loud too :)) Even Yamaha presented them as "the loudest drums you ever played".

Re: Another kit

I'd go for the Yamaha kit. It's got one additional floor tom and the Maple Absolutes are absolutely stunning quality. And the Flying Dragon pedals are absolutely great too, it's worth trying them -...

Re: To cut or not to cut (a hole in the logo BD head), this is the question...

Thanks for noting that!

Well, I do both - at rehearsals I only play acoustically, but live, of course, I have the drums miked. I guess I could drasically reduce the muffling to compensate for the...

Re: Wood specs?

To me, this discussion, in terms of resonance, actually goes between only two types of wood, as all the rest fall somewhere between these two (with minor exceptions): maple and birch. Maple is the...

Re: Birch bass drum question.../ pedal feel.../

What kind of a beater do you use? Because if you are using a plastic/wood/double-faced beater, just playing a standard felt beater might have a better response than that, feel-wise. I'm talking about...

To cut or not to cut (a hole in the logo BD head), this is the question...

So far I've played without any hole in the front head, but I just might get one soon. Still, before I do that, I'd like to hear your opinion about it.

Basically the sound is quite good right now,...

Re: starcliassic on ebay? 750 dollars?

I'd call it cheap too, although they're Performers, not Maple or Mirage or whatever. Good drums, in any case. Are they new?

Ok, here's an intimate statistic question :P
How many turns do you actually crank each lug of your snare (both top and bottom)?
I'm asking because it seems to me that I'm cranking my Mapex M Birch...

clean tom sound

I just got my beautiful new Mapex M Birch Cherry Red kit (22", 14", 8", 10", 12", 14"). Nice drumset, really (not only for the price!). I got a nice sound for the bass drum, snare, 8" tom and 10"...

Re: Matched Grip vs. Traditional Grip: Pro's and Con's?

Each has its advantages and disadvantages... Steve Smith has an extremely useful section about this matter on his Technique DVD. The basic idea is both work, each of them works without correlating it...
