For gig/session (hopefully) I already know the music (or at least a vague concept), and have chosen the appropriate number of toms in advance based on the musical setting.

While I own 8 thru 18,...

Re: Those of you who have "sound proofed" a room for your drums...

Quiterock works very well, particularly with the whole Quite system of products.

But unless one OWNS the condo, there would be no point in installing it.

Re: Priced to High??

I can't follow the link.

But if iI'm reading everyone right and it's a Gretch Catalina, then yes.

There are dozens of those sets on craigslist in my area on any given day.

Re: Those of you who have "sound proofed" a room for your drums...

^ This.

And everything else Jim has said.

Simply putting up more dry wall isn't going to do much given the structure of your room is still attached to the rest of the building.

Re: Which college will be the best choice for drummer doing rock muisc in LA?

This is quite true. Back when I was gigging and playing often, I never brought up that I went to PIT. Most people don't care. Can you did the gig or not? That's all that matters.

This is also...

Re: Buddy Rich trap case

Cool story Tony.

I bought a hardware case that once belonged to Tony Thompson.
Although I have gigged with it so much you can barely read his name on it anymore.

Re: Which college will be the best choice for drummer doing rock muisc in LA?

Pretty much. They will take anyone who can pay.

Sure, they have an "audition" process, but the fact is, skill isn't a requirement to get in as long as you have the tuition money.

Re: Former Modern Drummer Managing Editor Scott K Fish Says Hello

Hello Scott!

I've been an avid reader of Modern Drummer since the 80's, and at one point I had an extensive collection of back issues.

Re: Leave Me Alone Please

If I'm trying out drums, I don't sit down and play grooves or fills.

I hit the kick a few times, the snare a few times. Hit each tom once or twice. That's enough to tell me what it sounds like.

Re: Musicians Say streaming Music will Leave them Broke.

Journey is a case study in how the music industry used to be, and a big reason why it is no longer the same.

Journey's first 3 albums sold poorly. They were sold to change their sound. Their 4th...

What software did you use to build it? It seems pretty fancy for a DYI site.

My only suggestion is you break up the biography page in to a few paragraphs so it's not such a large...

Even for the cymbal stands, I take off the boom arm and fold up the tripod, and stick them in the case at their full height.

Re: Ongoing hi hat problem

It sounds like air lock.

If the top hat hits the bottom exactly perfectly all the way around at the same time, the air inside the two cymbals creates a vacuum, and holds the cymbals together. It...

Re: I got some Fiberskyn heads for free.. the heck do I use them for?
