Re: Making a kit

Yeah, that's what the ebook is focused on. It's geared toward someone like GRAVITY_GUY02 who wants to just get a pre-made shell, lugs, rims, and other hardware and assemble it themselves. Selecting...

Re: New Gretsch Renown Birch

There is extra text in the link from a bad copy/paste. Here's the good link:

Re: Making a kit

It will definitely cost more to do it that way (and take longer) but at the end you will have something that is completely personalized. Start with a snare drum and if that turns out well then I say...

Re: DrumMaker.com/Andy Foote - Experience in dealing with them??

If they did have issues like they say they did (it happens to everyone), then the right thing to do would have been to contact their customers, let them know the situation, and ask for everyone's...

Re: Smaller Kits

The "Player's kit" from Sonor seems like it would be a good fit. It's a Sam Ash exclusive with a 20x12 bass drum, a 14x12 floor tom, and a 10x8 rack tom. It has a very small footprint but the drums...

Re: Anyone else dislike suspension mounts?

Hate them, too. You can't position the toms close enough together and head changes are a pain. I switched to Ludgwig Atlas mounts on my rack toms a while back and I love them. No drilling and the...

Re: Vinnie Colaiuta back with Yamaha?

He also doesn't have to have an endorsement deal at all, he just has to have some language in his performance rider like this:

Promoter must provide Manufacturer X drums in sizes (insert sizes...

Re: Putting band name on kick drum head, with multiple bands?

I second that one. I'm thinking of a design for my kick that doesn't have the band name/logo on it but a personal logo or design. I've seen a couple of really classy looking ones lately and I'd like...

Re: Band members with bad timing

You've got to make a pact with the bass player to keep the time solid. If the two of you are in sync, then the rest of the band pretty much has to follow.

My bass player and I are lucky because we...

Re: Sonor Safari or Bop

I agree with the Player's kit. That 20x12 kick sounds nice and I can imagine it working in a lot more situations than a 16 or 18.

Re: Free notation software...

I have tried this before, but I couldn't get the hang of entering what I want to quickly. Speed and keyboard navigation is really important to me, since I would rather not have to drag and drop items...

Re: Country drummers!

I agree. I don't listen to country "top 40" radio, but I have to learn a lot of it because that is what we have to play at the bars. I guess since I don't listen to it regularly, I only hear the...

Re: Country drummers!

Some of those are recorded by the bands themselves, but there are probably about 100 "first-call" players in Nashville that basically rotate through a dozen production teams that generate a lot of...

Re: Anyone suggest good drum bags?

I agree. The regular PR bags are good because they provide 90% of the protection of a hard case with the durable materials, build quality, and added padding inside of the bag, while still being able...

Re: Anyone suggest good drum bags?

Well, they call all of their bags "cases", and even the regular ones are semi-rigid (way more so than the Gator/Beato/etc bags). I can't really squash mine up and stuff it into another bag like I can...

Re: Anyone have this new Gretsch snare yet?

The 6.5" deep Legend snare definitely does not have a reverse bead and it is the same design as the 5.5" deep snare. The same 1mm brass shell, the same strainer, the same rims, and the same heads....

Re: Anyone have this new Gretsch snare yet?

My primary snare is a Gretsch 6.5x14 Legend Brass. Here (http://www.drummerworld.com/forums/archive/index.php/t-84282.html) is my review from three years ago when I had owned it for about a month.

Re: What would you appraise my kit for?

I agree, if the goal is to downsize, then set up just a 1-up/1-down with a hh/crash/ride/crash setup and play that. Just because you have all that doesn't mean that you have to play it all. My kit...

I'm a lefty, and when I started playing (mumble mumble) years ago, my teacher gave me the pros and cons of playing a "left-handed" kit vs a "right-handed" kit. I chose to try playing a standard...

Re: 30 songs in 6 days.

Make sure you note down any band hits or "signatures" in the songs. These are the parts that if you miss them even non-drummers will notice, LOL.

Since this is country, most are simple kick-snare...

I use a set of the Gibraltar flat based stands with that "Swing Nut" top. They work pretty well, except the cymbal does swing up past the plastic sleeve and makes contact with the metal part above...
