Re: When disaster strikes: Your opinion

I was thinking about this the other day too. In terms of material items I would probably leave my drums, but take my guitar. I find a guitar a much more intimate instrument, it has a lot more...

Re: Should I Do It?

Haha well gig wise it was ok, the crowd could have been a bit more drunk lol. I find my main relief from exam pressure is sport and just hitting away at the drums myself. I played fine, although our...

Re: Should I Do It?

I ended up using the ekit and it did the job. I had my in ears so could hear everything fine. The only thing I noticed is that the kit lacked depth in the FOH, because at a small gig when you only...

Re: Should I Do It?

Yes sorry I should have clarified, gig is locked in. Even though I don't want to do it I will still put effort in and enjoy it. The question I meant to pose was should I play it with my acoustic or...

Should I Do It?

Well I have a gig tomorrow night and it is not one I am looking forward to. I am in the middle of my exams, and it is for the party of a good mate of our lead singer, who sprung it on us once our...

Re: Unreliable band members

Everyone in the band should carry equal responsibility and respect for one another. If someone is not practicing their parts and not making it to rehearsals, then they are disrespecting the effort...

Re: A few recording questions

One of my favourite snare placements is with the snare mic parallel to the head surface, about an inch above the head and 1/2 an inch over the rim. The snare sounds very dry as well. When a snare is...

Re: Intersting article on Beats Headphones

If people actually had good ears and could listen to beats before buying them, then that would be enough to put someone off. Unfortunately the market for such headphones does not lie with...

Re: How can I make a shallow snare sound deeper

A thicker batter head should give you some more 'weight' to the sound. Something like a controlled sound, emperor, or emperor X even. I find the compromise to a thicker head is that you loose some...

Re: Friends,Please Guide me

Ask yourself what completing the exam will do for you. Is it worth the stress and effort of studying such that you can have a formal certificate to qualify your playing? Or is it more than this to...

Re: Jazz Bass Drum Microphone??

Ive never seen anyone use a u47 for live. I'm also not a fan of the d6, however if it's just for a bit of volume and seeing your reso is unported I would say it will do an acceptable job. I love the...

Re: Achieving Greatness

I agree with this 100%. You will only get there through your own passion for the craft and quest for achieving what you want out of yourself. Greatness is then how people see what you have done and...

Re: Sport Injuries That Stop You Drumming?

Sport Injuries That Stop You Drumming?

Re: Band Pay Splits

I think the best thing would just be to talk to him and get him inspired to perform his best. Do you really need him on those gigs when you are getting paid more than usual? If you feel he isn't...

Re: How do you hear it all?

Ah wouldn't it be nice...

Re: How does Gavin do this?

Definitely one of my favourite drum videos, what gavin does here is great. In regards to the click thing, I think it is likely he used one, and I have seen a video where he says when he plays with...

Re: Band EP Launch/Follow up on Lazy guitarists thread
