Re: Rodney Holmes

Yeah, I was just surfing youtube for Santana stuff when I happened across that. I love the way Rodney makes it all look so effortless.

Re: Bonhams drum kit tuning....interesting info!

I like your approach, and find that tuning to notes at the proper intervals gives a great sound, especially during fills. I found it in the drum tuning thread, and my set is still tuned that way. ...

Re: RUSH!

Here's another one. I wish they all the Rush videos were drum cam:

It's amazing how that wall of sound can eat those 18" Paragon crashes.

Re: Bonhams drum kit tuning....interesting info!

Very nice vintage set!. If you ever want to add a set of vintage Paiste white label Giant Beats, keep your eye on the buy/sell section at cymbalholics.com. I see more vintage GBs over there than I...

Re: Vintage Ludwig Drums.. What do I got?

Wow, a psych kit with keystone badges! I have only seen the b/o badges on that wrap. Are the insides of the shells painted white? Definitely keep them out of sunlight. Even indirect sunlight.

Re: RUSH!

Is that the place up by Earth City? I looked at their concert schedule and cannot even find St Louis on it. If it's not at Cervantes, I will not make the drive to see it.

Re: Bonhams drum kit tuning....interesting info!

Yes, the maple kit he had on the Danmark Video had the keystone badge if you can find it on Youtube. Checkout page 39 of this article:

Re: What's with the life span of a cymbal anyway?

Having been guilty of this in past lives, I must totally agree. It has nothing to do with "proper technique" and everything to do with the fact that you cannot hear your own cymbals and human nature...

Re: Sad about cymbals

I have been playing for 40 years and have never seen wood edge dent bronze. This certainly doesn't take that guy off the hook, but wooden sticks did not edge dent those cymbals. Aluminum maybe, but...

Re: Sad about cymbals

First of all, I think the guy probably knocked your cymbal stands over rather than dented them with a wooden drumstick. Mass times Velocity equals Energy, and we are talking about wood versus...

Re: How to get a deep sounding snare

There are so many studio tricks, that it is hard to say "I want that snare sound" and normally solve it by buying that particular snare of the artists you are hearing. But I agree with a few others...

Re: Sound guys... *sigh*

My old band had a sound guy that could never get it right. He couldn't route my drums to the guitarists and vice versa. Then he kept my volume so low I had to pound drums and cymbals with baseball...

Re: What Other Instruments Do You Guys Play? ( Besides Drums)

I have messed around with Bass and Electric guitars for years. Keyboards, a bit less, though.

For the person complaining of sore finger playing barre chords - buy a decent electric guitar with...

Re: Journey??? On Tour.....

Yeah, I don't know the details on Gillan, but Walsh was into drinking and cocaine - perhaps meth, too. Since he never developed the Stevie Nicks roughness, my bet is he didn't smoke cigarettes or...

Even though Kerry Livgren and Dave Hope have been split off and in Proto Kaw, I think there are no bad feelings between them all. Provided Kerry gets feeling back in his hands after that stroke, I...

Re: Journey??? On Tour.....

Yes it is. And we might as well bid farewell to Steve. He has gone the way of other great vocalists like Ian Gillan and Steve Walsh. Father time, as well as a lot of smoking various substances...

Re: Phil Ehart

He and everybody in that band were very talented. I hear some say they were "lesser thans" to the British Progressive rockers of the era. In fact I was listening to Walsh's famous outro in Journey...

Re: Phil Ehart

Yes, if you look at his set even on the current Kansasband website, his snare and toms look like something featured in our infamous "Tom Angles" thread, lol.

Re: I need help identifying a "vintage" Ludwig kit.

Ah, a true Frankenset! I would not expect more than $400 from a set like that.

Re: how to get the groove to come out

Thank you. Very well put. A well establised groove by us can be absolutely destroyed by other members of the band if they do not connect with it.

Re: how to get the groove to come out

All I can say is that this is nothing mechanical you can work on. It is a feel, and in my opinion, you will find it when you forget about yourself and blend in with the music.

Re: Why ya' gotta be so dark?

I must admit, I had a 40 watt Marshall Combo that sounded as good as any 100 watt stacks I have heard. I remember back in the day, the only way to get that cool sounding distortion with those "ruby...

Re: Why ya' gotta be so dark?

As an added thought, there's a video out there of Toto playing Rosanna. The roar of the amplifiers is so dominating, you can barely even hear Jeff's hi hat on the shuffle part, and those are 2002s...
