Re: Am I the only one here that hated the Kick Port?

I love them for low end - intermediate level kits, because in my experience, they make a world of difference, but professional tier kits typically sound great as they are.

I've never had them...

Re: Pork Pie Little Squealer Maple, anyone got it?

I'd say it's too small for a main snare. I own the maple/birch 13x7 vented Little Squealer and it's great. But something that small, I would only use as a side snare or something like that.

Re: Playing sick (the show must go on)

I don't really have anything bad, personally.

I was running sound last week. There were two bands touring from Minneapolis, and three locals. The singer of one of the locals had gotten a tooth...

Re: Best way to Re-stain drum shells

Agreed. If it's already a stain finish, you don't know how deep that is, and it may be deeper in some spots. I would say there's too much risk in sanding the original stain off. You'd be better of...

Re: Help! Am I being a control freak without realising?

Precisely. I understand if you specifically pay for that rehearsal space for that band solely. Then I could see wanting a little cash to help fund that, but if it's a space you're going to pay for...

Re: Craviotto 6.5x14 solid (Found at Pawn Shop)

Did they seriously stick the price tag to the shell?!

I'm so upset right now

Re: Do Big Snares Tune Better Than Small Ones?

If you're speaking just on the drums' individual abilities to be easily tuned, that has less to do with the size than with the bearing edges, lugs, and shell construction. If you're talking about...

Re: Soooooo, I noticed something ........

I'm glad you're progressing.

The last few weeks, I worked on independence exercises a lot, and well, they worked. I have much more limb independence. If I get a text, I can usually check it and...

Re: Ugh! I hate my feet!

I watched a Mike Johnston clinic, and he showed an exercise that he uses for his kick speed.

You loop a right hand paradiddle (R-l-r-r), right hand on the hats, left hand on snare, but for every...

Re: Is *not* being told you played a great gig as good/better than being complimented?

The unfortunate truth is that if a drummer is doing his job correctly, a lot of people don't pay much attention to him/her. It's when the drummer is making mistakes and/or overplaying that people...

Marginally at best. You need a new head ASAP.

No, you can buy them everywhere. Just because they're the older models doesn't mean you can't get them anymore. They're all over the used market. You had might as well be calling a Pearl Export...

Re: Got called for a Session, YAY! Gear Upgrade?

You must not have played very many different weights and sizes of rides. My 24" is definitely a MUCH different feel than my 20". It's thinner and has a lot more give to it. There's much less stick...

Re: Got called for a Session, YAY! Gear Upgrade?

I think your Keller shell or your Acro would do just fine if you tune them appropriately, but I would definitely look into a 'pingier' ride for something like that. I think you hit the nail on the...

Re: Question about Crush Acrylic Drums

My buddy has a kit, and it sounds great. Great hardware too.

One of his shells split recently, though. I don't know if it was due to a manufacturing defect or improper handling. I don't think...

They're not rare. Not at all. Heck, there's a shell pack at my local Guitar Center right now priced at like $350. There are probably two more of them at a local music store a couple miles away...

Re: Help with plastic souding Tama Superstar Hyperdrive, PLEASE

You said you want the 'nice fat resonance'

For starters, if you're using the stock heads, that's probably 70% of your problem right there. Given that you said 'resonance', I'm going to tell you...

Re: Name famous songs where the drummer overplays

Absolutely, Mike!

I used to be the worst with overplaying. Now I pretty much look at drumming based on this comic.

Re: Do you hear sounds or mechanics when you play?

I know exactly what you mean, but it's opposite for me. It's when I move certain techniques to the hats that I start to have trouble. That's probably due to the fact that, since I bought my new...

Re: Tune Bot Snare Drum Tuning

Funny story, we had a well known touring band come through and we opened for them. On stage, they just kept talking about sofas.

Okay, back on topic!
