Re: Drumeo - any opinions?

I cannot recommend then highly enough. Since sitting down to my kit with their packages on my ipad my playing has gone through the stratosphere.

For the results I've gotten, I'd have gladly...

Re: That Erskine kit at NAMM

Not sure - noise issues are clouding my opinion. UFIP make the best splashes but you just can't hear them when 100 kits are being played at full volume!

We'll see...

Why don't you stain your...

Re: That Erskine kit at NAMM

How about a Guru Canary..........? Would certainly stand out, and at least the customer would know it's a kit that's guaranteed to sound as good as it looks.

Re: Stage Custom floor toms

What size was your floor tom? 14" and 16", or just a 16?

Re: Stage Custom floor toms

It's the Indonesian era stage custom in natural finish. Not gloss or varnished in any obvious way.

Haven't the faintest idea what wood was used. Something cheap no doubt! Definitely not...

Stage Custom floor toms

This era Stage Custom is one of my all time favourite kits - the ones made in Indonesia, particularly in this finish. However I've never seen any matching 14" and 16" floor toms.

Did Yamaha ever...

What gives? (Weaker limb stronger at new technique)

I've dabbled with heel/toe on and off for ages now and the motion never seemed to come naturally so I traditionally returned to heel up after a few hours.

The other day I gave it another go and...

Re: What drummers need for a gig

Hihat clutch. Aside from my drums, cymbals and stool, I always bring one of these.

I was absolutely amazed to discover that it's possible to be landed with one that actually doesn't work on a...

Re: The matching snare

I have the matching snare for my main kit. It took over a year of searching to find it but I got there in the end. Bought it for a song from someone who had absolutely NO idea what it was he was...

Re: First proper gig - report

All the best drummers drop a stick at least once per gig. The ultimate drummers manage to make that stick drop occur *just* at the climax of their bands biggest tune. The absolute elite of drummers...

Re: Competition - early heads up for forum members :)

Hmmmmmmmmmm...

My snare sounds amount to "snares on, snares off, rimshot".

Think I'll let the others do the entering :-(

Amazing idea though - 10/10!

I LOVE the "snare" sound - anyone know what that is constructed from? And what are those enormous raw looking china's?

I Honestly did not expect this when I clicked...

Re: suggest a radiohead song to learn

My Iron Lung and Climbing Up The Walls are great grooves.

Iron Lung just because it ROCKS (remember when Radiohead wrote proper rock songs with proper sung vocals? Its been a while!) and Climbing...

Re: Tip of the day

Yup, had never occurred to me either. And now you mention it I cannot believe I've gone so many years of aggro at gigs sorting this one out!

Aargh!

And thanks!

Re: Snares vs cymbals

This is something I too have been getting into these past couple of months, and I see a lot of mileage in it.

Wincent 7A's have a small barrel tip at the end of a very hefty shaft (unlike the...

Re: OH technique - front to back?

I'm afraid I can't help you with your question, but I'd just like to applaud your feat of getting 7 tracks recorded in 8 hours!

It took the best part of a day for me to get just 4 songs down on my...

Re: Snares vs cymbals

I find that convincing the wife is a LOT easier if you sell the occasional cymbal and then make a massive show of packaging it up and lugging it down to the post office. That way I create the...

Re: Snares vs cymbals

Now THERES a handy tip for us all - different cymbals for different acoustic environments.

Not only very useful, but handy ammo to justify the purchase of more cymbals!

Glad to hear there's...

Snares vs cymbals

Now I know I sell cymbals so it's hardly surprising, but I find myself with an ever increasing and changing cymbal collection. I got through sickening amounts to find just the right sound I'm after,...

Re: Wearing hearing protection issue

I can only echo what has been said already by others here - your hearing is vulnerable and once it's gone it's gone.

Funny looks or not, I ALWAYS wear hearing protection. Drums, gigs, power...
