Re: Which brass snare should I buy??

Pearl Sensitone.

I've had one for a few years now, put looooads of different heads on it, different hoops, different mics (when recording and live) and different tuning and it has never failed to...

Re: Any UK Truth drum dealers?

I have to disagree in most parts of this in all honesty. Sure, some custom companies use keller shells, but not all of them. And what's wrong with using Keller in the first place? Many companies use...

Re: Any UK Truth drum dealers?

No matter where you get them from, they will be expensive. Maybe even more expensive in the UK because of exchange rate, despite the economy nowadays, it would still be a lot cheaper in the states +...

I've had this plan for a while to record and film some drum covers, many of you have no doubt seen many other people do so and post their videos on youtube. I have a camera and song choices but just...

Re: Is there a such thing as a professional self taught drummer?

It depends what you define as 'professional'. As in, a drummer who does sessions in studios or live many times with the same or different artists? A drummer who is in a very successful band, going on...

Re: OCDP Dead?!

Nope, but thousands of other people can. And most drummers could easily replicate the drum tracks for a lot of Blink 182 songs.
You have to understand, there are so many Travis Barker and Joey...

Re: I'm right handed, but left footed. How retarded is this?

Seems like the best option may be to set up the kit as a lefty but play open handed as mentioned by Bo. Maybe have your ride to your right to make sure your dominant hand is still dominating.

Next thing you know, they'll be coming up with hi hats with rivets in them and marketing them as "Snake Hats, for that unique sizzling sound that can't be found anywhere else!"

Then after shelling...

Re: What type of Gretsch kit is this?!

In all honesty, i wouldn't have accepted it. If it was advertised as a 26" kick with 16" and 18" floors, that what i'd want. Not a 24 kick with one 16" floor. That's not what he advertised it as.

I'm dead-set on getting a 24" kick after playing one at a gig a couple weeks back. It had a clear PS3 on the batter, regular C&C (custom drums) reso and a very small towel rolled up inside, i think...

Re: made in uk?


Big Dog make, in my opinion, the best hardware out there. Their cymbal stands are absolutely rock solid across the board.

Re: made in uk?

I also agree with previous posts mentioning both Highwood and Noonan drums. They truly are amazing tubs and look just as good.
Definitely worth checking out.

Re: Full arm motions

Re: Custom drum companies - what do you want?


If a company orders in shells from Keller, then they're a custom finish company, not a custom drum company.
A custom drum company makes the shells themselves and can make truly custom...

Re: Using monitors event if my drum isn't miked?

Personally, the only and best reason for having monitors is so i can hear the OTHER band members. No matter what volume i play at, i'm still behind the kit and can still hear it fine.

Re: How many cymbals have you cracked/broken/split in your drumming lifetime?

After about 6 or so years i've cracked between 4 and 6 i think.

The one i remember most is an 18" Paiste Alpha (the older, better Alphas) which belonged to my then bassist. I was borrowing it for...
