Re: How do YOU Tune?

I play 14/16/18/ toms. While I prefer more of a medium tuning,I usually tune lower for gigging. It's seems easier for the house sound guy to deal with on the fly.

I use Coated Vintage Emperors...

Re: In praise of the 13 inch tom!

I grew up with 12/13/16/18. The intervals were always a pain in the butt. I don't mind a 13 if it's the only rack.

Re: Stage Fees?

Those girls aren't paid by the club. They are treated as private contractors. In most cities they even need to have a business/occupational license.

Re: 42-strand snare wires

You will get more sympathetic buzz but you should be able to tweak the excess out. If it's too much, you can always try 24s or 30s.

I am currently using 42s on my 7x14 Tama brass and like them a...

Re: Most Random bit of equipment that's failed at a gig

The wing nut on a double tom stand failed in the middle of a tune. The toms went crashing to the lowest position. Fortunately, had one crew guy out with us. He clamped it in place with a pair of vice...

Re: Tama Starphonic Brass Snare

Ludwig have finally updated their throw offs and butt plates. New Black Beauties come with the P-88AC . Some of the big stores are still selling old stock with the P-85.

Re: Blackrolite Tuning Woes

It might be time for a new reso and snare strand. I find a tight reso will decrease sympathetic buzz.

Re: Pros and Cons of rack mount vs. snare stand mounted tom

I use snare stands. I prefer the independent adjustability. I've tried both rims mounts and Atlas mounts from my left crash stand but I always go back to the basket. There is always an annoying...

Re: Die cast (again?)

I've had drums that i preferred with a die cast and drums that I preferred a triple flange. These days I have an S-Hoop on most of my snares.

Re: Woeful suckfest :(

There's a difference between "headlining" and playing last. In a festival situation,the last spot is seldom the best. I've always tried to avoid it at all costs.

Re: guitars too loud, why?!!

Yes.... if the amps aren't loud. If they are,you can hear them just fine facing away from you.
