Re: Unpopular Drumming Opinion Thread

for that matter, drummers who only care about a single brand of drums. Am I crazy, or does this apply more to Pearl players than anyone else? They're all great drums dudes, all brands pretty much....

Re: Unpopular Drumming Opinion Thread

I just thought of this one - I get annoyed when non-endorsed drummers only play 1 brand of cymbals. It just bugs me - there are so many great companies out there (especially in the last 10 years!)...

Re: Best way to learn mathcore?

I was talking about this w/ a drummer friend and found this thread, sorry to dig up an old one. I did 1yr as the drummer for one of the bands you mentioned, and I'd say to not think of it as playing...

Re: Will Calhoun

Sorry to dig this old thread back up, but I had some Mad Hats and they were so heavy. The bottom seemed like it was twice the weight of a typical bottom hat. I wish I had them now though, I'd find a...

Re: Unpopular Drumming Opinion Thread

At first glance I thought you were listing the worst bands of the 90s. Also I'm in the 'disliking Clapton' camp, and I'll one-up that:
I HATE THE EAGLES!!!

Re: Unpopular Drumming Opinion Thread

I play for the song with one band and I feel boring sometimes. But other times the song tells me to do cool stuff. As for cowbells, I love them but still don't bring them to gigs because I'm so sick...

Re: Unpopular Drumming Opinion Thread

I don't like it when drummers that have been playing fewer years than me are way better.
I don't like Peart solo's after Exit Stage Left era.
I love roto-toms, octobans, and gong-drums (but donít...

Re: 80's Tama Superstars

did you ever get these drums? I have a kit and find the 9X13 to be a challenge to tune at times (it doesn't like certain heads), but the floor toms are always awesome.

Re: New Bass Drum Hoops for Old Tama Superstars

My kit is already confused about which era its from. I chopped the 12" and 13" toms down to std depths (gasp!) and have coated resos. I also bought a very historically accurate TAMA Superstar decal...

Re: New Bass Drum Hoops for Old Tama Superstars

would be, but I'm too lazy to go after a good match to the existing 30yr old cherry wine! I'm going more natural wood color for contrast (think C&C Player Dates).

New Bass Drum Hoops for Old Tama Superstars

thinking of adding new hoops to a Cherry Wine 24" Tama Superstar. Anyone with good tastes have any suggestions? So far my ideas are:

wood: natural maple (or something a little more medium like a...

Re: Vintage Ludwig Floor Tom - Out of Round?

I used to let my vintage Ludwig 16" freak me out because of this too. I sent mine off to Precision Drum (not for the hump, just to have the edges recut) and the thing has just sang ever since. I use...

Re: A Werewolf Playing a 1969 Ludwig Blue Oyster Pearl

Ha. Those Cympads are what happens when I visit my local drum shop with only a $10 on me. I didn't even use the top felts before them. Now the site claims each color gives its own amount of dampening...

Re: A Werewolf Playing a 1969 Ludwig Blue Oyster Pearl

Thanks. I used to bring a second crash but just didn't need it. I'd lose the splash too but I was dumb enough to record a song where it really stands out, so when we play it live I need it.

And...

Re: A Werewolf Playing a 1969 Ludwig Blue Oyster Pearl

I couldn't see well enough to notice. I did hear a few kids saying "Hi werewolf!", so that was cool.

Re: Trying new edge and re-ring setups

I did some research after posting this and saw that Craviotto mixes it up with edges. They say their "Baseball Bat" edge on top with a sharper 45 on bottom is pretty popular.
So I have this Grestch...

Trying new edge and re-ring setups

Anyone ever heard of putting a reinforcement ring on just one side of a drum? What about using different types of edges on the same drum? I'm curious, and may have an extra snare to experiment on.

Re: Question on C&C drums

Also heads are really important. I used to occasionally play in a hardcore band w/ metal tendencies, and I'd put pinstripes on my 60s Ludwigs and maybe a PS3 and it would sound fine.
