Re: Band give aways /Burner sticks

My sticks are sold at the merch tables, so if someone catches me and asks for a stick I can direct them there. If I'm doing a gig where merchandise isn't being sold then I politely tell them I don't...

Re: Your practice time...pleasure to work ratio

ALL practice is pleasure! I don't really work on anything "for fun" haha. I thrive on a more discipline routine, and get great pleasure out of working within that construct.

Re: piccolo snare (pros and cons)

I actually just recorded drums on a reggae song on Friday.
I used a 4.75" x 14" Noble & Cooley cast aluminum. Cranked it really high with a single ply coated head. Sounded great. There's a clip on...

Re: how essential are backing vocals in a band?

I really depends on the material you play.
If you're doing covers, and those covers have backing vocals, than I think it's a must. If it's original material, then it's kind of up to the band if they...

Re: That Drum Catalog whose pages you wore out

I think the only one i had as a kid was a Gibson-era 90's Slingerland catalog. I had a Slingerland kit growing up, so that was my jam.

Re: Stage Etiquette article

Yeah, That's something I would loved to have included, but there is a word number restriction on these articles. I had WAY more written and had to trim it down.
