Re: Why ya' gotta be so dark?

I've always been drawn toward bright, clear cymbals that have character. I think Paiste's Dark Energy line are some of the most perfect cymbals anyone has ever made because there's a complexity in...

Re: What Haven't You Played Yet but Really Want To?

Carnegie Hall? Sounds like a good thing to play.

I would love to play an 80s Tama Bell Brass snare of any sort. A Craviotto kit would be awesome, as would a vintage-weight Sonor maple kit.

In...

Re: Are 13" toms obsolete?

I have fusion sizes at home and 22/13/16 Ludwig Stainless Steel for my gigging kit. They work great in their respective places and I like being able to tune the 13 and 16 a bit higher to get some...

Re: LOCAL BANDS THREAD

I live in Raleigh, NC, and there are a couple good bands around here, although I admittedly haven't heard too many.

This is my band; we're called Stammerings....

Re: Best vehicle for a gigging band?

Yeah, you'll end up running around 15 mpg, with a big diesel engine of some sort. That's a lot of gear to haul and it's not going to fit in a minivan.

I can fit my four-piece kit, a couple...

Re: Want to go to Berklee for Music Ed degree - unrealistic?

Yeah, you most likely won't get past the audition if you have no formal education in music; Berklee has gotten pretty strict about who they let in, and with good reason - you don't want anyone...

Re: OH technique - front to back?

I had the same issue with an engineer's results recently. He placed the overheads on the outer extremities of my kit, and I was only using a four-piece with four cymbals, so the resulting image was...

Re: What are your favourite recorded drumsounds?

Graceland is a really cool album, but man, the drums are so awful at times. Boy in the Bubble isn't too bad; I'm not sure it's a sample, but there is a whole lot of gating and gated reverb on the...

Re: What are your favourite recorded drumsounds?

I love the way Kevin Shirley records and mixes drums. They're always thunderous and huge, unless they're not supposed to be. The last few Joe Bonamassa albums sound amazing, and I'll always be a...

Re: stick in the eye anyone? not for the meek!

You might have just convinced me to start wearing ski goggles onstage.

Re: Overhead Mics - Side Address vs. End Address

There's not a sonic advantage to having a microphone design be side address or end-address, but it makes for easier placement and design. Every large-diaphragm condenser I've used is side-address and...

Re: Micing my kit with 3 mics

Full-On Drums have a very thorough video about how SM57s sound in various positions around a kit. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Vz7JK_KEVE)

I think having a wider sound from stereo is a million...

Re: Ok - bearing edges :)

It seems as though Ronn proved an entirely different point: that any drum can be made to sound good. Obviously, this is true and it depends on the heads, your hands, and your ears. I don't think the...

Re: How much air is in between your hi-hats?

I keep mine farther apart than most of my friends, who keep their hats pretty low. I'm usually somewhere between an inch and two fingers. I have skinny fingers, so that's only a half inch's...

Re: How many drum kits have you owned?

Hmmm, let's see...

Ludwig Accent
Pearl Masters Studio BSX
DW Pre-Collectors Series
Ludwig Stainless Steel

The only drum kit I've sold was the DWs. That was my gigging kit and the toms were...

Re: Do drummers lose points for disassembling the moment the show is done?

All of the shows I'm playing these days, everyone brings their own gear, and there are usually four to six (too many) bands on the bill that night. If everyone spent five minutes talking to people,...

Re: Buying genuine yamaha replacement parts???

I've never seen anyone stock a large amount of Yamaha parts. At most I've seen some cymbal arms. You'll have to order them either way, and I can say from experience that Yamaha parts are difficult...

If I were to endorse a company's product, I'd have to go with:

Ludwig or DW Drums (I'd keep my Supraphonics)
Craviotto Snare Drums
Dunnett Snare Drums
DW Hardware
Paiste Cymbals
Regal Tip or...

Re: Do You Like Metal Snares?

I tend to gravitate to a good metal snare, but it's hard to beat a good solid-shell wood snare of sorts. Case in point: I play my brass Supraphonic LB400 and my 13" DW Craviotto almost exclusively,...

Re: Alternate purpose for drum shield

The keep stage bleed to a minimum by blocking the drums' sound. You get a much cleaner vocal sound without drums in the vocal mics.

Re: What's with ash?

Where in the world did you find an ebony drum? It's hard enough finding guitars with ebony fretboards!

Assuming it wasn't just a single veneer, that is.

Re: Is a pop/folk/indie-song ever better without a fitting drumbeat?

There are plenty of songs that are perfect without any percussion.

The first thing that comes to mind is the entire bluegrass genre. Sure, it's peppered with the occasional brush train beat-type...

Re: Chili Peppers should have stayed home.

Even his solo was prerecorded. He hit two cymbals (one being an O-Zone) and they both sounded the same. The drums themselves sounded like Ocean Way samples or something. There weren't even overhead...
