Re: Hi hats and air lock, no luck.

Thanks! I was wondering whether you had noticed that part. It was kind of wordy for a web forum.

Try what I suggested about the neoprene clutch washers and hi-hat seat before you start taking...

Re: Help with my technique and mental pulse

I checked out a few Tricot videos and your guy has some amazing technique to be sure. Completely rips on a single pedal.

Also, I (and you should) notice that Komaki himself doesn't beat the snot...

Re: Hi hats and air lock, no luck.

Used to have problems with it, but I figured out what was going wrong and fixed it.

A few things come to mind.

First, the fact that you can rotate your bottom cymbal and make the problem come...

Re: NFL Asks Musicians for Money to Play Super Bowl Read more: http://www.rollingstone.com/music/ne

Some of what seems to be in question here is the matter of who is providing what value to whom.

It has been accurately pointed out that the spot does provide the entertainer with an opportunity to...

Re: Insulting a member on the bandstand

Yeah, maybe he was playing badly (in your opinion), but he's more experienced and connected in that scene, and like it or not, if you want to be part of that scene, it's a good idea to tread...

Re: Leave Me Alone, rant 2

So your preference is for blah gear?

If someone criticizes your gear saying that they had it and it sounded bad, tell them that you are sorry that they couldn't get better results with it.

Re: Weird symptoms before a show

I agree that it sounds like an anxiety reaction.

The usual stress reducers people have mentioned (meditation, breathing exercise) can help. If it gets too bad, a medication such as BusPar can help...

Re: Leave Me Alone, rant 2

Haters will hate, and creators will create.

In my experience, when people get up in my grill with this kind of pedantic crap, it's because they perceive that I have something that they either...

Re: West Coast Drum Shops

In the San Francisco Bay Area, pretty much the only surviving dedicated drum shop I can think of is A Drummer's Tradition in San Rafael.

Bentley's Drum Shop in Fresno is legendary.

Re: Tips for Giving Drum Lessons

If I were giving someone their first lesson, I would start with how to hold the sticks and other elements of good embouchure.

You don't say whether they're going to be at a kit or what, but how to...

Re: Professional responsibility

Ah, I see, you were just trying to help them prepare? Frustrating.

Sounds like the consultant has a handle on it: let attrition take care of the ones who can't be bothered. Especially if they...

Re: First time buyer advice

$208? You must be calculating that using the Pearl brand legs.

You don't have to buy the Pearl brand legs. A brand new set of Gibraltar tom legs is $15 (and may very well be the same product with...

Re: What's On Your Shopping List?

Dang Ollie, you're going to start a new Bronze Age.

STXBob: Zildjian New Beats are IMO, the first to check out for versatility.

Dream Cymbals has some very well-respected products. If I had to...

Re: Incredibly beautiful Japanese Aria drum kit find!

Beautiful kit! Love the bronze.

I think that what you have there is indeed a hidden gem. Keep your enthusiasm. Don't let anyone dampen it.

Here's are my speculations on the drums.

Re: A Question To Those That Collect A Number Of Drum Kits

If we all only had one kit, there would be a heck of a lot of us lined up to play it. :-)

I have 2 kits, one late '60's Slingerland that stays at home and is my main practice and recording kit and...

Re: First time buyer advice

First, nice looking kit. I think you did well there. I know the B8's have taken a beating (pun intended) in this thread, but you have to start somewhere, and cymbal choices are...

Re: Best Hearing Protection?

Not sure if they would be appropriate for your situation, but I'm picky about plugs and I like Earasers.

Re: Best drum music notation software

I use Finale NotePad (http://www.finalemusic.com/products/finale-notepad/), which is free. Worth a try if MuseScore doesn't do it for you.

I've had no trouble entering rests.

Re: Discouragement for Chops I Don't Have

THANK YOU! Also MileHighDrummer.

"Chops" is a much abused term around here.

However, we don't have to guess or make something up; Merriam-Webster defines chops as "skill or excellence in a...
