Re: DW Designer Series

Not that I can spend on drums right now, but I'd like to see that White Onyx FP applied to the rest of the lineup, not just the Frequent Flyers. Maybe it will be an option by the time I'm ready to...

Re: 13 snare drum lugs

The only context where this seemed like a good idea was when somebody (Spaun, maybe?) joined 13" and 14" shells together and made a snare with a 13" 8-lug top with a 14" 10-lug snare side.

On a...

Re: This bothers me :\

This is where technique really matters. In the same way that certain hand and finger movements will allow you to hit clean and fast all day with little fatigue, there is a way to use the pedals to...

Re: Best Advice You've Been Given

What? Like Kerosene, Diesel, whale oil, propane, etc...?

Just teasing, HAHA!

Everybody knows that weapons-grade uranium makes the brightest fire.

Re: Opinion needed 16" kick drums

I had the best results with a muffle ring on a PS3 style batter, a single-ply reso, small porting and an empty drum. I kept the tuning no higher than medium-low and no lower than just-above-flappy,...

Re: Has anyone or famous drummers recorded with these crap drums?

Bozzio's first kit was assembled from a junk pile, more or less, and I think he's done OK for himself. Drums are just tools, and if you really get good with them, they are mere toys. A drummer who...

Re: Should I give up this hobby for drumming?

Not only would I NOT tell you to quit...I'd say that things like Tae Kwon Do would serve you very well in anything you are passionate about. There are certain universal values there that you may...

Re: Tight Cymbals and odd setups...

I keep my cymbals pretty tight, but a lot of that has to do with the setup and the way I use them. Since it's a Bozzio-style Radia setup, it's really designed for lower volume melodic playing and not...

Re: Input Needed for DW Kits

The improvement you get from Performance to Collector's is really a matter of inches for the extra money spent, and much of that is either cosmetic or esoteric (must you have a waterfall bubinga...

Re: Is it bad to have little or no individuality?

Look at the cymbal setup on my bigger kit, and that will tell you a bit about where I stand on that. Now, the next time I go on a cymbal buying kick, that will change, since ten years or more playing...

Re: How to get rid of rust on rims?

You might need to put a little shot of WD40 on the inside of the tube to penetrate the threads of the hex nut/bolt, and possibly use a strap wrench to grip the tube.

Re: Is it unethical to buy drums made in China?

For the purposes of this forum we have the responsibility to keep it drum related, even if we are dealing with tangential aspects of it. Drumming does not exist in a vacuum, so I think it's valid for...

Re: Is it unethical to buy drums made in China?

I don't think there is a predetermined timeline on it, but we would do better to stop beating each other over the head over nothing, so we can focus on the important stuff and get it done. Surely...

Re: Is it unethical to buy drums made in China?

The transition from agrarian to industrial is usually a messy one. Remember that England and the US were pretty awful polluters when we entered the industrial age, and while we would seem to have...

The response you got was typical...as far as these kinds of problems go. They are pretty good at dealing with screw-ups on their end, but they do draw a line as to how far they will go to accommodate...

Re: Less isn't always more?

Going with the food analogy....

Oatmeal with brown sugar sprinkled on it is quite nice and tasty. I also think Buffalo wings are nice and tasty. That does not mean that they are interchangeable....

Re: Tuning to pitches...yes? no?

Not so much for predetermined notes, but I have used intervalic tuning for a couple of decades. As such three toms will get a root/5th/octave tuning, four toms get an arpeggio...

Re: Unpopular Drumming Opinion Thread

What I mean is if you have 4 or 5 different sizes of toms, don't worry about their specific sizes, just find a nice little scale that they all play well in and tune away. I read a lot of complaints...

Re: Unpopular Drumming Opinion Thread

Radia cymbals are super-useful, and a great excuse to have forty cymbals on your kit.

There is no best drummer in the world. Not even Buddy Rich.

Drummers make a lot of excuses for doing/not...

Re: jungle kit creation!!

Re: Do drummers lose points for disassembling the moment the show is done?

I stopped reading after this. Most of us tech our own gear, make sure it's not stolen, etc...but this is the biggest component of it all. I would be delusional if I thought that tending to my...

I do tend to be consistent with my gear, however, so here's the list: DW drums, pedals and hardware, Sabian...
