Re: Mid Price wood snare research

I know it ignores everything else you posted, but I use an Evans ST Dry head on my 14 Chrome over Steel Premier snare and it gives - to my ear - the perfect mix of a woody tone with metallic snap....

Re: Does anyone else experience this?

I had this problem a few months ago. I was playing a simple one-up, one-down set up with a second snare; ride; a couple of crashes; a splash and a china.
I know it doesn't sound like much but I'm...

Re: How do you get more cowbell into your playing?

Beautiful groove - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TVtJKErRBpI

Check out the various covers as well (Guns N' Roses, Kid Ego etc). They're all worth a listen.

Re: Snare stand tom mounting

I used to use a snare cradle but switched to a hanging mount because of the increased resonance.
I totally prefer it, and think it's also much easier to position the tom.

Re: 2nd floor tom size?

I'd agree with this - I have a 16x14 floor tom with a Remo Ebony Pinstripe batter head and, tuned correctly, sounds really deep (lower than some 18s I've heard).
I used to use it with a 13 as my...

Re: Need tuning Help!

Best advice here - those videos are brilliant.
They may be made for Evans, but the principles apply to any drum head.

Re: Good deal?

I would totally disagree about the cymbals.
I love the XS20s - they're great for intermediates and sound amazing recorded.
Of course they're not top of the range, but on a budget they're probably...

Re: What grip to pick

It is my blog, yeah.
The fulcrum is between my thumb and index finger, as that's where the stick pivots when you play traditional grip.
The photograph is from the side. That's how I was taught it...

Re: Drilling a snare

Agreed. I drilled a wooden tom today (to turn it into a snare) and I'd never done it before. I went surprisingly well and I'm pleased. You just need a steady hand, patience and confidence to make the...

Re: Snare drums - Favourite and recommend!

I'd look around for an old Premier steel snare. They sound great, and if you're lucky it'll be pretty cheap.

Re: Use of Double Bass?

I'm the exact same. I find it useful to add to fills or beats here and there, but nothing too over the top. It's great for those situations where your main pedal breaks down on you too.
Having said...

Re: The Ultimate Challenge

Personally, I much prefer videos when the drums are included as part of the band. Or, at least, playing along with a backing track, Cobus-style.
Every now and again I don't mind a drums only solo,...

Any pointers about what else to cover would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Warm ups

How would you suggest I improve the traditional grip?
Aside from the fact that I want the blog to be informative, I also want to be more proficient and skilled in my own playing.

Re: Matched vs Traditional Grip

So you're saying it should be less of an 'up and down' movement?
Thanks for the feedback - I appreciate it.
