Re: Survey for a school assessment

IMO, 20% tin just makes the classiest bronze cymbal tone. It sounds the best to the most amount of people across the board. So it's the most popular among people who take their sound seriously....

Re: To rack or not to rack?

Bo, if I know you at all, I'd say you're not a rack guy. You're more old school.

Personally, I don't like the looks of racks at all. Straight, curved, gull winged, lowboy racks...they all offend...

Re: Why is it called "Decade" Maple?

I'll take that bet.

I bet a snare drum that they don't know either.

They could have gone the extra mile and named it Decadent Maple.

The hardest thing to do is usually the best thing to do.

So save.

Re: Get better Andy!

Hey Andy,

On one hand, I'm relieved that you are actually able to go out and rehearse. That's pretty big. So that's a positive.

On the other hand you have to regain some former...

Re: Drum Hack: Floor Tom Sustain

Wow. Never saw this before. OK I knew a stickbag on the FT killed it, but to put some weight on the leg? Brilliant!

And I thought I'd seen it all.

Nice work fellas.

Re: Aches in my hand

Well it wasn't what I was expecting to see. It looks like your stick is indeed suspended off your palm, and you're not relying on your elbow for every hit.

So I have nothing.

Re: Aches in my hand

If you grip the stick like a hammer handle...meaning the stick is pressed against your palm...bad. There are many different ways to work the drumstick. The important thing IMO, no matter what method...

Re: Different finish kick and toms

I've never met a set of drums that offended me.

If anything, a mismatched set makes me feel like the drummer is very secure with themselves. More power to em.

It goes against the tide, and...

Re: Do guitarists generally dislike rests on drums?

I don't know what I was thinking. My bad, you right, sorry about that. Like you said, the vocal during the rest is very rhythmic. I would hate to be a musician and not be able to keep steady time for...

Summertime Blues...that rest is only 1 quarter note. That's inexcusable. Laughable even.

Re: Do guitarists generally dislike rests on drums?

It's rare in my world to have a guitarist with good time and tempo sense. Of course I am not on a pro level.

If we drop out, they flounder. That's my experience. The continuity is lost until we...

Re: How do you practice?

Whatever you do, do it to a metronome. A really great time/tempo sense is absolutely the #1 job of the drummer. If that's not down, the rest doesn't matter yet.

Re: Noble and Cooley 3pc Walnut

WOW!

Eye popping grain. You must be one satisfied hombre.

N and C drums are in a class by themselves. Well done!

Re: Die cast (again?)

Great point. If your metal snare needs a bit of taming, a die cast will do it to a certain extent. Conversely if you want to open a die casted snare up a little more, use TF.

Aluminum die casts,...

Re: Die cast (again?)

My whole drumming life practically, I was a die hard, die cast on the snares guy, until maybe 3 years ago. One day I woke up and die cast hoops on my snares just all of a sudden sounded too choked to...

Re: Get better Andy!

You're right James. Can't have the good without the bad. Bad is necessary apparently. And yea, positivity has a way of growing between people who are exposed to it.

Andy pushes himself a bit hard IMO. I know why he does it. Still, I'd like to see him not work so hard. I don't think it's in his nature though. However dodging a bullet like this tends to make...
