Re: Help pinpointing an old Pearl Export's manufacture year

Nice find, that's a very good price where I live too.
Another nice thing about your find is it has some single-braced hardware which will save on weight lugging it around to gigs. I have those exact...

Re: Silly branding things that shouldn't matter (but do!)

Your drums look and sound wonderful. But In all due respect I think you are selling yourself short by doing this.
Many a drummer on here (i.e. people who have a relationship to drums) has inquired...

Good on you Rogue. Not all your stories have to be blue.

Re: Drumming in the pre digital age.

Ya without a doubt, learn something every day on here.
I wished I had joined DW earlier than when I did (2011 I think). Would have saved me from making some unwise choices before then.

Re: Snare rim-click help

You may be muting too much with your palm, thus 'quiet'. Open your hand but don't mute everything with it. Some people invert the stick to get the butt end on the rim for more volume.

Re: How tense are you when you play?

Clear and cool, with a chance of frost.

I have just made a transition in the past year to being ultra-relaxed at gigs, and listening to and taking in the whole band.

OK Madge, I'm going to turn it around. You offer to sing a number in your band while playing drums.
Granted it's not the same though - drummers have 4 limbs going, whereas singers need only have...

Re: One or two mids toms?

For me its all about ride placement. I can't stand having the ride far over to the right.

And oh yeah, of course one tom looks way cooler too.

Re: Snare sound with Hot Rods?

The only suggestion I would say is tune your snare low.

Not sure what you mean. Do you mean you won't help with the PA? You won't pick up another band member on the way?

I would think the PA is everybody's responsibility, at least huffing it in/out of...

Re: Shooting for a 50's sounding snare! Any advice?

A 5 x 14 wooden snare, maybe even 3 ply, with 6 or 8 lugs, open sound.

Re: 80s and 90s drums (the Glam Rock ones)
