Re: More Ludwig Signet porn

I don't feel invalidated, and my kit doesn't get "little love", it gets no love....but only here. Out in the real world, we both know, things are quite a bit different, and this forum is really just...

Re: The best advise EVER!!

I've been saying this forever. Take 100 guitar players and have them all play Mary Had a Little Lamb, note for note, everyone playing it the same. One would play it the best. How? If they all play...

Re: More Ludwig Signet porn

Maybe out of line, but it's a Signet. Not exactly drum porn. It's a put it together yourself kit that has 12-16 pinball sized holes in every shell. I mean I know it's not (insert evil brand) bad but...

Re: Lugwig Legacy. How good of a deal is this?

Legacy kits are spendy. I think they are way overpriced, but Ludwig knows what it's loyal fans will pay. That said $1215 is a good price, it has desirable sizes, the color is not my fave but not...

Re: I like cheap snares

I'm glad I read this thread. Here I was thinking my expensive snare sounds better than my cheap snare. Even side by side I was fooled. It's obvious to me now that they both sound just as good and the...

Re: Head rebound on different size bass drums?

I'm learning this now. I've been playing 20" kick drums for 15 years and recently moved to 24". Skipping right past 22", the difference has taken some getting used to. It feels a lot different and...

Re: 22" x 12" bass drum - 2015 Origin photo's / spec's

Sorry :) just having a little fun. It's another beauty and your drums always sound incredible. Even to an old ply shell fan. The quality of your drums is beyond dispute.

Re: 22" x 12" bass drum - 2015 Origin photo's / spec's

At last! Someone finally filled the piccolo bass drum niche. No offense Andy but it looks like a parquet floor and a Peavey Radial had a bastard offspring.

Re: I HIT TO HARD

Let me put a different spin on it. When you hit "too hard" you are affecting the performance of your entire band. You are changing the dynamics that the other members are used to. You rehearse a...

Re: Can you turn an "intermediate" kit into a "pro" kit?

I did when I started gigging. Good hardware, good cymbals and a '65 Ludwig snare parked on top of a cb700. I stripped the wrap off the cb, sanded them and gave a light tung oil. Natural finish one up...

Re: What makes a pro kit?

The quality of the player cannot be understated. I think that high end kits from every manufacturer are better sounding than mid level/intermediate/beginner sets from any maker. IF, and this is a big...

Re: The legendary sweet spot

I didn't misread anything. I merely had a discussion with a man who asked for responses. I didn't ask for responses. Perhaps you didn't read my entire post. It was actually quite jovial. I don't feel...

Re: The legendary sweet spot

Horsefeathers! I mean, with all due respect. It works, and you should try to be a little less resistant. The use of Tunebot, which uses a chromatic tuner to determine the fundamental of the shell, is...

Re: Rock albums with modern production and a great vintage drum sound

I just have to say that you've named some of the most heavily produced drum recordings. There is no "minimal mic'ing" going on. Now I love those drum sounds, Soundgarden is my template for drum...

Re: I think everyone would benefit from building one. . .

I started a couple years ago. I did a remodel on an old floor tom. It turned out well so I got more ambitious. I bought a 5 ply Keller 16x14 and finished it to match my DW. It turned out perfect and...

Re: Drummers you thought sucked,but...

I entertain a lot of links via this forum. The standard run of the mill "i play along with" kind of crap. Mostly they suck. When I was very young and equally ignorant I couldn't tell a good drummer...

Re: My Signets and the gong

Matt you are a living contradiction. Can't tune a DW set, own an orphan kit of God awful drums that you just love, have to work with a budget when buying a new kick drum mic, and own a gong that's...

Re: I accept defeat.

After seeing that vid I think you'd probably like my kit. It might not be your exact cup of tea but my sound isn't that far removed from Bonham (my hero). 24x16, 12 up 15 down. My drums are super...

Re: I accept defeat.

Why do people do this? Comment on something without saying anything. Overhead mics capture cymbals! Sure they are ears, and therefore also hear toms and snare, BUT (big but here) they are not...

Re: Are there fewer demands for a drummer now, than before?

I'll site an example of what I think is the new broom in music. I call it soundcloud kids. The very popular "rock" band Imagine Dragons was founded by the singer and a drummer, college friends. They...

Re: I accept defeat.

If I'm using overhead mics, I'm using mics on everything. If I only mic the kick, then I'm definitely not micing the cymbals. Everyone on DW uses overheads in place of direct mics and everyone hates...

Re: Rick Allen (Def Leppard)

It was a sports car (Porsche i think). He was driving alone after a party, xmas or new years. It was a one car accident. I can neither confirm nor deny the whereabouts of his arm. He claims he was...

I'll go out on a limb here and say that Don Henley is one of my absolute favorite singers.
