Re: Drummers who don't use cymbal stoppers

Small cymbals fly all around for me too, but never off the stand! I don't use wingnuts or felt on my ride anymore, tho. It's easier to hit the bell. Everything else is lightly tightened down, so I...

Re: Self taught drummer.. how do I take my drumming to the next level

The best way to do this: get a teacher. I know it's intimidating, but you will cut down the time it takes you to learn something by yourself by a huge margin. At this point, it seems you're already...

Re: Problems with double bass groove(s)

Try slowing down and starting over with your double bass work, only now incorporate your hands. Find something more comfortable and slower than 120 and go from there. It takes a while, I'm still not...

Re: Always sounding bad when practicing

No! Don't quit! Keep working at it. Tell your brother he's an idiot who should support you, not bring you down. Even the greatest drummers sounded "bad" at some point in their lives. You don't hear...

Re: 2014 Vater Drummies

Eh, I think the list is too bare bones. 4 drummers per category is ridiculous when there are so many equally skilled drummers that were excluded for... some reason. And Dave Grohl won best...

Re: Crush Limited Mahogany or Crush AXM?

I'd go for the Mahogany because I like 6 piece kits, and you can always buy a great snare somewhere else. And I like mahogany's deep low end. I've never played one in person but Crush is certainly an...

Re: Which college will be the best choice for drummer doing rock muisc in LA?

+1 When I started learning to play, my teacher told me I can learn to play rock on my own since it's what I do for fun. He was going to teach me jazz, funk, and the "stuff I should know." You'd be a...

Re: Musicians Say streaming Music will Leave them Broke.

Maaaan, I remember going to Borders or Barnes and Nobles as a kid and listening to the snippets of songs on those little machines where you could scan the CD's in the store. Sure, you can't take it...

Re: Crap

Yuck dude, that sucks. Coincidentally, I split the front of my index finger last night, so I feel your pain. "The show must go on" couldn't be more accurate haha.

Re: Deciding on Album Artwork?

Well, those bands already had rabid fan bases, so I think it's hard to compare DsDrummers situation with some of the most influential bands of the last 50 years haha. My 2 cents: pick something...

Re: I feel like I'm in a bit of a pickle.

I agree with this. Use his kit for band practice, play gigs with your own. If it's otherwise neglected, you could try getting some new heads for you to use.

I've been in a similar situation (tho...

Re: Double Bass Drum Tone Uneven

I think it's more about having a clear beater sound (as opposed to muddy, pummeling fury) and less about uneven foot strength.

It's totally natural to have a difference in sound. Think about...

Re: Sonor Ascent vs Dw Design

Battery is something you put in the back of a remote control. In which case, I recommend AAs, they always get the job done.

Re: Signs you're getting better at the drums

Re: 20x14 Bass drum for hardcore playing - my point!

Not to mention it's difficult to find "in between" sizes. So many companies make 22x18 bass drums with standard toms and a 14" snare that it takes more work to find different sizes and features (I...

Re: Can music ever be financially rewarding again?
