Re: Micing my kit with 3 mics

You are right. For my drums, the sweet spot is 36 inches. All drums are different; move the mics around until you get the sound you want. I just said 33 because it is considered the standard although...

Re: ipad or tablet? and general advice

I'll give another vote for the androids. Very sleek machines and the new operating system is very smooth. I'm posting off of my nexus now.

Re: Who do you select for a Studio Drum Coach?

I'd get Steve Gadd.
I mean, do studio drummers get any better? Actually, I'd quit and have him play on the tracks and tell everyone that it was me playing. Maybe I'd gain fame and fortune.

Re: Most heinously overrated drummer / band. Come on Man

I think that I am definitely the most overrated drummer. Despite my world wide status as a drum god (according to drummer magazine) I am no where near the professional level.
But seriously, were...

Re: Any good christmas goodies?

A few days ago, me and my dad went out to buy a new pair of Dream Bliss hats for Christmas. I handpicked the perfect pair and we bought them as an early Christmas present. But when we got home, my...

Re: How do I loosen my hand?

Not to brag, but I can bend all of my fingers at least 60% back and my pointer fingers can bend almost 100% back. :)

I have absolutely no idea how to accomplish this feat, or if it even affects...

Re: Amazing Buddy Rich clip

Buddy rich was a control freak. I know this first handedly because my dad played is his big band during the early 80s. On one gig, Buddy had a disagreement with the owner of the establishment he was...

Re: Just starting out

There is nothing wrong with exports. This set is, however, a little pricey, but then again I don't know what kind of extras that comes with. And before pulling the trigger on any drum purchase, make...

Re: Tell me what drum technique videos YOU want to see..I'll post them to my Youtube channel!

How about some really handy big band fills and licks? And how to set up accents on different beats of the measure?

Re: How often do you break/drop your sticks?

I have never broken a stick in my life, mostly because when one gets worn, I switch to another one (and I don't play hard in the first place). On the other hand, I drop a stick almost every practice...

New Snare: Ludwig Classic Maple?

Hey, I currently own a Yamaha Stage Custom kit. The bass and toms sound great but the snare could use an upgrade. I am looking for something that could work well for jazz trios, big bands, funk,...

Re: recommendations for new set

I've played most of these kits and my favorite has definitely got to be the stage custom. In fact, I own one. :) You can get them used for under 500 bucks if your budget is tight. I agree that they...

Re: Could Someone Help Me Identify this Snare?

I have a stage custom and I can tell you that the throw is way different as are the lugs. Of course, that's probably irrelevant since my drum is an early 2000s drum. Just thought I'd throw in my...

Any percussionists on DW!

Hey DW,
I've been reading so many drum posts lately that I've realized the lack of percussion posts; there are virtually zero posts that cover percussion outside of the drum set. I was wondering,...

Re: Should I jump on this snare?

I wouldn't suggest jumping on any drum. You could break the heads and dent the shell. :)
But seriously, if you need it and it fits your budget, it is obviously a great deal on an amazing snare. The...
