Re: What professional drummer's setup do you admire most?

Jean-Paul Gaster, all the way. Most of the time, playing live, the dude uses a 20" inch crash, and a 24 inch ride over a 4 piece kit. He typically uses a 24x16 or a 26x14 bass drum. His intentions...

Re: Universal Badges?

Obviously it was intended to be lugs. But I was thinking of badges when posting the subject.

Universal Badges?

This may seem like a stupid question, so please try to restrain yourself from being an ass, if you so have the urge.

I'm considering purchasing a bass drum shell.. I'll be finishing it to match my...

Re: Clear or Coated?

I'm currently using thick ply heads. (Evans G2) Clear batter, G1 clear reso. But I prefer coated heads 2 to 1 on my drums. I just got a good deal on these from a buddy who didn't need them. I like...

Re: Drums, you either have it or you don't...

I think you have to have something special to excel in drumming, at least very quickly. I've been playing drums for about a decade, more or less. I've put in so much practice and effort, and quite...

Re: 16" Hi-Hats - I'm Sold

You would have to find the pro series on eBay. They no longer make them. But someone told me the B8 Pro line is pretty much the offspring of the Pro series.. Maybe you could get a 16" B8 Pro medium,...

Re: 16" Hi-Hats - I'm Sold

Larger socks are indeed the holy grail of timekeeping, at least, for myself.

I'm a big obsessive over hi-hats ever since I started mixing and matching. Sure, series hi-hats are fine, like your...

Re: Fat Drummers Unite!

I've seen some pretty big drummers in my area absolutely shred. I'm not a really 'fat' dude - I weight 305 pounds, but I'm also 6'2". So I guess I'd consider myself 'chunky' or maybe even flabby?...

Fat Drummers Unite!

I'm sure I'm not the only dude on these forums with a big appetite and a slow metabolism. I stand at 6'2", and most people expect me to sit down behind my kit and just beat the snot out of...

Thank you, and Good Night!

I'm sure, by now, everyone knows who Soultone Cymbals is, and the name they're trying to make for themselves. I endorsed their products for over two years; my name was on their site, I got the little...

Intensity level on stage?

How can I tell if my drums are too quiet, from my perspective?

I'll be playing a gig tonight - an indoor festival. What can I reference to know if my drums can be heard clearly or not?

Re: Do people who know you drum think your favorite Christmas song is Little Drummer Boy?

The ox and the Lamb shoulda' started a rhythm section, and fired his ass.

Re: Refinishing

I think sanding would be your best bet. It is my understanding that some drum shells are treated chemically. I'd be worried that using a chemical paint remover would mess with this chemical, if this...

Re: I can't play my drums now!!

Dude, that sucks. I deeply feel for ya'.
I've never had any injuries to keep me off the drums - but I've had living situations keep me away from them. i lived in Atlanta with my wife for a while,...

Re: Are you influenced by what your favorite drummers endorse?

The only player who's choice of cymbals influences me is Jean-Paul Gaster. The Meinl Byzance cymbals he uses pretty much gets my dream sound. I'd never looked into the cymbals until I heard him...

Re: Metronome?

The metronome is a beautiful tool.
Once you start using it, you'll never stop - that's how useful it really is.

Some people say "Oh I have naturally good time. I don't need a metronome."

Re: How much do lyrics matter to you?

I depend on lyrics to know where I am in a few songs. Pausing briefly is a very popular thing with our front man, so I have to keep an ear out when we're doing certain songs. The rest of the time, I...

Re: Help - Bass Kick Off Time

I don't have good teminology either. I just understand time signatures and quarter notes.
Those excercises should help. Just work to a metronome - you'll get it together. Most people aren't blessed...

Re: Help - Bass Kick Off Time

Another thing that greatly assisted my kick drum timing is working the rudiments with your feet. Singles, doubles, and paradiddles at least. Do it with a metronome, at first just with your feet, and...

Re: What professional drummer's setup do you admire most?

Jean-Paul Gaster.

That dude lives my dream. Rather than endorsing a drum company, he buys and restores kits from the 50s and up. He re-cuts the bearing edges, buys new hoops, re-wraps the wood,...

Re: Im so embarrassed...

Dude, these things happen. Don't let it bother you so much - besides, drummers already have an ill reputation with most people, so you probably didn't suprise many with this little incident.

Re: The feel of your hi hats-

I gotta' have responsive hats. I also like to have a lot of weigh to work with. I use 16" hats, because even though they're fairly thin, they have good weight, the stick bounces off of them really...

Re: Accidentally hitting rims and sticks while playing

You can greatly reduce contact with the rim by adjusting the angles of your drums. - but I'm sure someone either already said it, or you know it. So ignore that, if it isn't helpful.

I don't...

Re: Which is harder to play drums or guitar?!?!

Everybody plays guitar. It can't be too damn hard.

I learned chords when I was really young, and my grandfather had me playing songs in a few hours.

I've been playing drums for over ten years,...

Re: Does anyone make a "quiet" snare drum?

You can make a snare drum less sensitive by buying a thicker snare side head. You can also throw an old towel, t-shirt, or bed sheet over the head, doubling it until you get to the volume you want.
