Re: Drum shops in NYC or San Fran

Interesting to hear peoples opinions. Anything in particular that makes a place like guitar centre so average? I guess based on their online presence I have assumed them to be one of the biggest...

Re: Drum shops in NYC or San Fran

Thanks for the tips guys.

Interesting to hear that a city as large as San Francisco could be without a drum shop. Obviously not enough drummers living there!

Re: Wrist pain

Rest is good, and as mentioned before a compression brace speeds up recovery in most cases. I also put anti-inflammatory cream on which often helps.

Whenever I have injured my wrist it has never...

Re: Big maple fun :)

When I listen to the zebrano tour vid you did, the toms really remind me of the toms sound on tool's aenima. I have never heard any drums come so close to that sound and it is one of my favourite...

Re: Drum mic recommendations

You can use one tom mic between two toms if you wish, but you may get more bleed while trying to capture both toms, and you will get less body and low end capture aiming the mic at the edges of the...

Re: Gigs.....

Gotta love it when free beer is on offer! I do love gigging out although tearing down is the worst especially when the party is still raging on. We often joke in our band that if we could just rock...

Re: Drum mic recommendations

Just remember, not everything will sound great in your situation. I tried a d6 on my kick recently and really disliked it, however it can be a great mic in the right circumstances. It all depends on...

Re: Visit to Wac'd Drums

So much Drum!

Looks awesome, I always wanted a set of his lugs to fit to one of my own drums but I guess he has gone more in the direction of manufacturing his own kits altogether.

Re: Equal Opportunity Hands?

I find that my left hand has different advantages to my right, it can play really light and intricate ghost notes that my right couldn't, where as my right has a little bit more speed. Based on this...

Re: Big maple fun :)

lol they sound ridiculously good. I love the tightness of the zebrano toms, but these maple toms are just so phat! two very different sounds, both fantastic. That kick is just massive and punchy as...

Re: Sound proofing Idea

Interesting proposal, Im sure you could reduce the sound a decent amount by using a booth, and some heavy duty sound barriers over the windows and doors, but the foam won't do much unless the room is...

Re: IEM/Headphones with Microphone Outfront

In terms of monitoring, if it is a small venue and the stage volume is well balanced, then I will usually only need some kick drum in my monitors.

If you are trying to capture other musicians in...

Last Minute Gig Fees

If you are called upon by a cover band to learn their setlist for a gig within a week or less time, what do you charge them? Do you take the drummers usual cut? Or bargain with them for more because...
