Re: Flattening toms?

I like to give my rack tom just enough height so that I can do cross-unders with my left hand, and rim shots if need be. I usually have it in a snare stand, angled toward me.

Re: 3-ply Slingerland chrome over wood wrap removal

Making a sacrifice to the drum gods, I see.

Honestly, I think it'll be perfect when I veneer it. I've always wanted a kit that looks like Ludwig thermagloss maple, and here's my chance. If I can...

Re: 3-ply Slingerland chrome over wood wrap removal

The outer mahogany ply is extremely thin compared to the rest of the shell, while the middle poplar ply makes up the bulk of it, and the inner maple ply consists of the rest. Slingerland mainly used...

3-ply Slingerland chrome over wood wrap removal

So I managed to get a 24 x 14 3-ply shell on ebay for a restoration project. After I painfully removed the chrome wrap, large chunks of the thin outer mahogany ply came off with it, so I decided to...

Re: Need help tuning my snare.

You're wasting your money if you pay someone else to tune it for you. The best thing you can do for yourself as a drummer (or any musician for that matter) is to know your instrument inside and out....

Re: Letting others borrow equipment

While I can't say I've ever loaned anyone gear before, I've given away old hardware and cymbals to some musician friends for free, although they never seemed to be grateful for it. I work a minimum...

Re: Vintage Slingerland Restoration

I keep having dreams about having a green sparkle kit. It seems like in the mornings after I have those dreams, I want green sparkle badly, then as the day goes on I want turquiose sparkle and can't...

Re: Vintage Slingerland Restoration

Thank you for the great post. The Atlas spurs definitely solve the problem of me not being able to find any original spurs for sale anywhere. I may as well just fill in the unused holes with wood...

Re: Vintage Slingerland Restoration

I like solid colours, mostly. The last set of drums I had was a 9 piece Sonor 3007 in cherry fade, but I got sick of it eventually.



I was thinking about getting these replica lugs, mostly for...

Re: Vintage Slingerland Restoration

The sizes I have are exactly the same as Bonham's Slingerland kit that he used on the first tour, and on the first album. If I made mine green sparkle, it would be identical to his kit.



How do...

Vintage Slingerland Restoration

Greetings, one and all. After selling my previous kit (a Sonor Force 3007) due to gradual dissatisfaction with the red and black fade finish and numerous other things, I acquired some orphaned 60s...

Re: Worst mistake you've ever made during a gig ;)

I sometimes have a tendency to play poorly when I go to open mics and play songs I've never heard before. Sometimes I have to play along with guitarists who play rather obscure songs, and my mind...

Re: Getting the best kick drum sound

Much of his sound came from the way his kit was miced. Usually the resonant head was miced with an Electro Voice RE20, and sometimes the batter head was miced with a U 47 for extra definition. It...

Re: slide technique / punk drums

Toe-heel has always worked better for me than heel-toe. I have a little thing I do where, depending on the height of my ankle before the initial stroke, I can get doubles, triples, or even quadruples...

Re: New drummer: upgrade kit or cymbals first?

This is the order I would do things in as well. With the right heads, you can make almost any shell sound good.

Re: Traditional Grip

'Double traditional grip' sounds like something from a Jens Hannemann DVD.

I'm thankful that I played saxophone and drums for over a decade, and learned to read sax and drum notation in elementary school. Learning other instruments goes hand-in-hand with drums, and vice...

Re: Like a virgin, Yamaha bass drum plate.

Any chance that you make the triangular type for 22" Sonor Force 3007 bass drums?

Re: Bass Drum Issue

That shouldn't be the issue at all. I always have my bass drums unported, I max the spring tension out, have both heads tuned very tightly, but I never bury the beater. The only times I've ever had...

Re: Poll: What is your genre and bass drum size?

Two 22" bass drums for now, although this may certainly change someday.

I mostly do experimental music, along the lines of rock, metal, jazz, psychedelic, and progressive. When I write songs, I...

Re: What do you do as practice when you don't have sticks with you?

I do various polyrhythm combinations with my hands, 4 limb tapping, and various finger strengthening/speed exercises.

Re: One Rack Tom vs. Multiple Rack Toms

The only times I use a 4 piece (1 up 1 down) are when I have to load everything in my car to gig for a night. Otherwise, I use anywhere from a 4 to 12 piece setup. The toms simply add extra notes to...

Re: question about toms

I'm another fan of the 2" diameter spacing too, as I currently run 8, 10, 12, 14 up, 16, 18 down. Personally I'd go with a 10" rack or 16" floor if they offer them in your shells. DW Piccolo toms...
