Re: Favorite throw off and why?

I love the MAG throw off I have on my 14 x 8 PDP Maple Bubinga snare (yes, I got the limited edition). It is quite sensitive considering the weight, and I have no trouble tightening or loosening it...

Re: Ideal 2 Floor Tom Sizes?

I personally use a 14" and a 16" as my floor toms, and I'm able to get them quite low without losing the "oomph" factor, but it's all about what you find to be the best. If I were you, I'd start out...

Re: Effects of snare depth on tuning?

Thank you all for your quick and helpful replies. I now have my 14 x 8 tuned a few notes below my 14 x 5; they are at F#3 and A3, respectively. I have also since demoted the older drum to the...

Effects of snare depth on tuning?

Hey guys, I'm not sure if there is already a thread about this, but I'm curious about what effect the shell depth of a snare drum has on its tuning as compared to another one of equal diameter. I'm...

Re: New snare wires - stretch?

I'd suggest a rather blue-collar DIY approach as soon as you check to verify that the snare unit isn't put in crookedly. Tighten the snares to your desired tension level, and then put two long, thin...

Re: Took a 3 month long break from practicing regularly

The same thing happened to me. One time, I was in New Jersey visiting relatives for two weeks, and then when I came back to Florida, I could play much faster double bass singles with my right foot....

Re: A month and no drums

I am usually surprised by how much I still know when I get back behind my kit after a hiatus. Then again, I've never gone without drumming for more than two weeks lol. I do notice that I am sometimes...

Re: Click practice is great and all but..

I use the Clockwork metronome app for my iPhone when I'm practicing. It allows you to toggle the settings with time signature, the volume of each type of note playing in each respective measure, and,...

Re: Those of you who have "sound proofed" a room for your drums...

I use a corner of my garage as my drum studio. My dad and I put white fiberglass insulation on the undersides of the garage door panels, and propped them up with leftover pieces of the crown molding...

Re: Unpopular Drumming Opinion Thread

I personally own a five-piece Tama Stagestar set with an 18" kick, but I got it because the set was up for $250 used from a friend. For the most part, my height wasn't an issue, as I am 6'1", but the...

Re: How do you save up for gear purchases?

In order to save up for more drum gear, I usually deposit all but maybe $20 from my wallet into my checking account, and pack my own lunch for when I'm going to work or class, so that I don't have to...

Does your condo have a garage? If so, you could put your set off to the side, and put in some fiberglass insulation on the inside of the garage door. I personally did this for my garage, and it now...

Re: Tuning

Definitely do what 8Mile is suggesting and tap near the lugs while muting the other head. I also combine that method with a Drum Dial for more precision. In addition, before you put on a new drum...

Re: Need help choosing drum kit/shell pack

I second larryace's opinion, and I advise that you search for professional-quality cymbals, such as Zildjian A's, etc., that have been previously owned, but are in good condition. I would start with...

This is my 10-lug, 14" x 5" PDP Platinum Solid Maple Snare. I got just the shell with all of the lugs and tension rods for $125 off of eBay. I bought the heads, rims, and snare wires separately. I...

Re: Jazz Kit Idea

For cymbals, I would suggest looking at a Zildjian 16" Medium (or Medium-Thin) Crash, a regular 20" K Ride, and a 10" ZHT China Splash for accents. Many jazz drummers have only one crash cymbal,...
