Re: How do you save up for gear purchases?

Yeah its a lot. I have a nice job, so does the wife and no kids. Company pays most of my expenses as I am expatriated.
Anyway I have sort of gotten what I need, so I should be scaling down.

Re: How do you save up for gear purchases?

I probably spend USD3k on gear per month. Never sell anything.
Not only on drums, but also on studio and PA equipment as well as keys and guitars.
I sort of have what I need now and hope to scale...

Re: Is Dennis Chambers ill?

We are not prying like calling up his family or going to the hospital where he is at. Just sharing information that is already available.
We are fans and we care about him.

Re: RANT: Dissapointed in Sonor

I think you have to accept that your kit is 10 years old and get the parts ordered while they are still available.

Re: Removing the wrap from old Ludwigs?

II have done it on a Tama Swingstar from the 70's.
Some of the 1st ply of wood preferred to stick to the wrap and it did not turn out pretty.
I do however not know if Ludwig is gluing their wrap...

Re: Do we really need expensive drums?

Its not just the sound we pay for:

More expensive drums usually have better hardware
Might come with better heads
Might be made in a high labour cost country
Might be made from exotic woods...

Re: Al Jackson jr break in Turn You Loose. . . sounds simple . . .

Well you got it already - otherwise sing the phrase while playing the beat and the progress to playing the phrase. That will help you to keep time and does not require any notation or counting.

Start by putting a roll of gaffe tape in your stick bag and take it from there -)

Re: Endorsements... A two way street?

Lets say an endorsed drummer needs 20 cymbals to be 'fully equipped', USD300 each.
This obviously depends on if you are Mike Portnoy or Brian Blade. But 20 could be a good average number.

Re: manufacturing process for triple flanged hoops?

I have never noticed a joint on a triple flange hoop and don't think its roll forming.
More likely its stamped out of a sheet of metal.

Re: I've played only TAMA for years, looking to switch up

Tama makes great products. A switch to another big brand would be a sideways move unless you are going from a low end model to a high end model.

Re: Preparing for a covers band

I can't imagine dragging around charts for 450 songs. It would be several binders and usually when the song is called its 1, 2, 3, 4. No time in that kind...

I own one and its one of my favourites for a nice funky, tight sound. The die cast hoops gives it a nice crack and the depth of 7" gives it some bottom end e ven when tuned high.

Re: Mixers with built in compression

Understood. The A&H you are looking at have a USB interface build in. This means you can record a stereo signal. So connect the 7 mikes, maybe a stereo signal from an mp3 player if you play along...
