Re: WHAT WOULD YOU SAY?

I don't get the animosity. I assumed from the OP that the sound guy (or girl) wanted to know how may toms were being used so that he could allocate the proper number of microphones, stands, cables...

Re: How do you save up for gear purchases?

I don't think I spend an inordinate amount on drum gear. I bought a Pork Pie snare drum back in February and justified it to my wife by saying that I was scheduled to receive a bonus in March. I got...

Re: Congrats To Bermuda!

Congratulations my friend. I've been telling everyone I know that I know the drummer on the @1 album in the country. Now tell us about the tour.

Re: Neurotic

I've had the same basic setup for at least the past 15 years. The only real changes I've made are lowering my crash cymbal height and, just recently, sliding my hi hat pedal to the left to...

Re: EGO's

I used to have a problem with compliments. If someone would compliment my drumming and I knew that I had made some mistakes (usually most of the time) I would be quick to point them out. I've since...

Re: The matching snare

One of the reasons I purchased my Stage Customs was because it came with a matching snare. Not so much bercause it had a matching finish but because it was birch. I wanted a different sound than my...

Re: First time buyer advice

I have a Yamaha Stage Custom birch kit that I bought in 2011. I don't have any experience with the others. A new shellpack goes for $650 new so $350 used doesn't seem out of line. It depends on the...

Re: What drummers have marched?

I think Hannah Ford marched. I saw a video about her explaining her technique and she was saying that the marching instructor was really anal about the sticks having to be exactly 90 degrees apart....

Re: Not denting heads

I don't understand how some drummers see the broken sticks/cymbals/heads as a badge of honor. I guess that I'm just cheap and want my tools to last a good long time.

Re: Good exercises for developing mobility around the set?

I got the Drum Set Warmups book a couple of weeks ago and can already tell the difference. I'm only up to lesson three and I feel more confident and am moving around the kit with 15 - 20 minutes of...

Re: Deciding on Album Artwork?

Not really about artwork per se, but more about band photos.

Re: Important question from the new guy.

There are many pictures and videos on the interwebs of Gene Krupa's set up on an riser. I'm sure he wasn't the first to do so.

Re: Famous Metal drummers?

It's funny how the definition of metal has changed over the years. I was going through mo old Modern Drummer magazines and the January 1995 issue had an article entitled "Metal Drummers Round Table"....

Re: Technical question......Song endings

Well, there doesn't appear to be a consensus as to what these things are called. I don't believe that it's a fermata. If I remember correctly a fermata is also known as a hold or a pause. What I'm...

Re: Technical question......Song endings

I'm not above cliche'. I do the outro from Led Zeppelin's "Rock and Roll" when the surf band plays "Wipeout".

Technical question......Song endings

What do you call the ending to a song where everyone just wails for about 15 or 20 seconds before a final cymbal crash? I've heard them referred to as concert endings, flourishes, and free-for-alls...

Re: Double Pedal

I'm in the same boat as you. I'm 58 and have always played single. I got the double bass book by Joe Franco. It's only been a week or so but I can see steady improvement. His technique (he calls it...

Re: Wearing hearing protection issue

I got the flesh-colored Hearos foam earplugs. 20 pair for $5 or $6. People can't tell you're wearing them unless they're standing right next to you.

Re: When people ask you to 'play something', what do you play?

I'll play a money beat fot three measures and then to a simple single-stroke roll down the toms and then end with a crash.

Re: What's your latest purchase?

Got some instruction books with the gift card I got for Fathers' Day. All three came highly recommended.
