How do you tune a cajon?

I found plenty of videos about how to play, but nothing very good on how to tune. Any experts out there?


*Edit: I should add that I have a cajon that uses guitar strings for the...

Hi there, here's the story: A couple of weeks ago I started to notice some minor discomfort when my left wrist was flexed all the way (think push-up position). It's getting a little worse - not...

Do you gig with a drum machine?

I'd like to start tinkering with a drum machine, but I'd like some advice from those of you with experience using one. How do you adjust your playing when a song has both a drum machine and a live...

Re: Need help convincing parents about bass pedals.

I have to agree with what most people have said: there are plenty of other great pedals that don't cost nearly as much (especially used gear), and there is value in learning how to play well on...

Pimp my Acro!

I never did anything interesting to mine - just replaced the heads (PCRD and Hazy 200) and snares (generic 14-strand) to get a versatile sound. How do you guys customize your Acros and what kind of...

Djembe videos for a beginner?

Can anyone recommend any YouTube videos for basic djembe technique and rhythms? I have no idea which ones are genuinely good and which ones are misleading. Thanks!

Re: Who's your drumming influence?

I hope you get to that point soon. If not, you may end up having to spend a lot of time and energy correcting bad habits.

Instead of trying to afford weekly lessons, why not find a teacher...

Re: Masterclass

Just like Underhill said, it's just a fancy way of saying "lesson," although I'd add that you'd expect a masterclass to be a single lesson given by a pro (not necessarily just the big names - local...

Re: can you have too much knowledge to enjoy music?

I met a girl one day. Beautiful. The kind of beauty that immediately captivates you and makes you want to know more.

We became friends. We became serious. We became husband and wife. And as I...

Re: adding snare wires to tom / converting toms to snare

Has anyone tried adding snare wires to the bottom head the same way they do to cajons? Then you wouldn't need snare beds at all (I hope I'm making sense).

Re: Best new/used maple kit under $1000?

Thanks for the replies, everyone.

I don't know exactly - I don't think my friend has any specific preferences (I do, of course, but it's not for me!). He's used to a 5-piece, and he's actually...

Best new/used maple kit under $1000?

A friend of mine asked me what I recommend, and I honestly couldn't remember ever playing on a maple kit in that price range (when did they become so affordable?).

Does anyone here have any...

Which maple snare complements my Acrolite?

I love my Acro, but I'd like to get a wood snare too - something warmer, and I really like the sound of maple snares. Ideally, these two snares will be the only ones I need (for rock, funk, disco,...
