Re: Show me pics of your small, simple drum sets

Here's a pic of my Gretsch Brooklyn bop kit. I need to have a small footprint with my current band so I just go with snare, bass drum, floor tom, hi-hats, and a crash/ride. (At home I have it set up...

Re: How much time do you split from practice and playing?

Re: Drum Terminology

We always called them drum kits in Ireland - never heard someone say "drum set" til I moved to the States.

Re: why don't we tend to share pedals and snare?

My reason for always bringing my own snare/cymbals/pedal or requesting the same courtesy if someone is using my kit is preference. I like the feel of my pedal, and the sound of my snare and cymbals...

A bigger port isn't the solution to your problem. Your bass drum wasn't "quiet" because the unported resonant head was preventing sound from coming out. Unported heads make for a boomier sound.
