Re: Hearing protection?


I have been using these, much better sound quality than the foam ones. Peace and goodwill.

Re: My new "Yes I can play" kit ;)

Did you spend more for the Pearl tom mount than you did for the 12 inch tom? I like the kit. The next time we have blues band practice, I am going to take my toms that do not match just because I...

Re: DW Jazz Over Gretsch??

They sound like drums, and that is all anyone else besides a drummer will think. Get what appeals to you for whatever reason and have fun playing. Peace and goodwill.

Re: Hilarious! Gretsch/DW

That is from the movie Downfall, which is the most realistic movie I have ever seen, and I have seen way more than my share of movies.

That video is very funny. Peace and goodwill.

Re: Bob James (1978): Jazz-Rock Communicates to a Wider Audience

I really like the band he is in, Fourplay. I like his jazz trio albums too. Peace and goodwill.

Re: 2 ply resonant heads

Tubby is a good way to describe the sound of a two-ply resonant head. Peace and goodwill.

Re: playing less and keeping time

On a slow, simple song, pretend you wrote it. That helps a lot. Peace and goodwill.

Re: Singing and playing?

I have sung in every band I have been in. Most of the time, the drums sort of go on "auto pilot." I have been doing it for a very long time, so I do not remember it being a problem. Peace and...

Re: Kind of an odd question?

That mostly depends on the stereo. From what you said, I doubt yours will do what you want. You could get an adapter to plug two headphones into the same jack. Good luck. Peace and goodwill.

Re: Learning to play well on a 4 piece kit ....

I have been playing a four-piece kit for most of the last thirty years. I mostly use hats, ride, and two crashes too. At church I also have a splash and China. It works for what I play. Peace and...

Re: How do you guys learn a song?

It depends on the tune and how familiar I am with it. Most of the time, I listen to it a few times. If I was playing prog or fusion or jazz, it would be different. I am playing blues-rock, a style...

Re: I suck at power ballads.

I read a long time ago in Modern Drummer, when playing a slow song (or any other type you have trouble with), pretend that you wrote it. It has worked for me. Peace and goodwill.

Re: Band PA ownership options - thoughts, experiences

In the past we pieced together a PA from what the different members already had. That way there is no question about who owns it. I have a small mixer/amp, two small speakers, and a good Crown...

Re: Hey Lefty Drummers

I am left handed and right footed, so I play open handed. I live in the boondocks, so there is no jam night situation for me to deal with. Peace and goodwill.

Re: Looking for a new drum kit, seeking advice

Any of them will be good. Choose by the tom mounts and other hardware. Some do not like the Pearl tom arms, but they are OK with me. I have owned all three brands, and all of them will get the job...

Re: Singers dragging the tempo

The singers at our church do the same thing, slow down the songs. The worship leader and I try to keep it going, but it is like stump pulling. It actually got better when we added a choir. Peace...

Re: Sorry I ever got rid of those.

I traded in my Sabian El Sabor 21" ride for a ride I no longer have. I should have kept it. Peace and goodwill.
