Re: Funky snare - Supralite vs Acrolite

Snap up an Acro! You can get them here in Aus too depending on where you are - and $240 should just about see you one on the bay.

Here's Steve Jordan using one that's fairly cranked:...

Re: Recommendations on Small Snare

Seconded on the Musashi. I use one as my main snare at the moment - throw a two-ply head on it and it can do anything!

Re: Drum store tourism

I suspect it's a pilgrimage of sorts for forum members here to do such things.

When I visited the States a couple of years ago, I made the point of going out of my way to visit both Hollywood Pro...

Re: Dual ride positioning

Dennis, I've always wondered - do you find it strange having rides up that high, or are you just used to it? I tried it once and my arms tired out very quickly; it felt like I wasn't using my energy...

Re: Dual ride positioning

Two rides on the right, and you can even keep them at roughly the same height! Of course, this is dependent on your setup; if you're not flying the ride half off the kick then you will probably need...

Re: Snare Buzz Caused By Bass Guitar

This is gonna come across as hugely obvious and probably a little condescending, so I apologise - but have you considered just flipping your strainer to the 'off' position when cross-sticking? That...

Re: Wellington Custom Built Drums

Those look identical to Pearl's wood-fibreglass kits. Lugs, tom arms, everything... I'm looking at my own wood-fibreglass and they are the same bar the wrap.

Re: This guy gets an "A" for performance :)

Guys, just remember, the dude is 72. When you're 72 with a full head of white hair, let's see you try and pull off the same thing without everyone on the interwebs commenting on your lack of groove!

Re: When did you know drums were "it" for you? When did they become your passion?

I started playing drums at 13, didn't really catch on and I left it there.

Hearing Larry Mullen Jr of U2's beautiful simplicity and rock-solid groove when I first saw them live at age 18 got me...

Re: About these 13" snare drums...

13" snares with a depth of more than 6" are the absolute bomb. I'm currently playing a 13 x 7 Black Magic, and the backbeat is exactly as you've described - you can really dig in and feel it happen,...

Re: Trad. grip players check in ....

"Whenever I see you playing, you just look like you know what you're doing / look like a pro cause of how you hold the sticks!"

Anyone else get this? I seem to all the time... if only my skills...

Re: Trad. grip players check in ....

I play both, snare is always dead flat... as has been mentioned, I find grooving more fun with trad, and fills easier with matched.

Re: The Ludwig Acrolite

Very nice! Although, isn't there another name for a 6.5 x 14, 10 lug aluminium Ludwig drum..?

Just kidding, of course, and glad to see that Malaysia's getting some...

Re: What size is your main snare? Why?

Currently, a 13 x 7 Black Magic for rock - I enjoy having a little more room between the legs especially with an active left foot, plus the pop of the slightly smaller diameter combined with the...

Re: Is it late for me? (Drum starter)

Never too late! I picked up the drums seriously at 18 (I'd dabbled a bit before that, but got sick of it) and five years later... well, I'm in a band, playing regularly, posting here and loving it! ...

Out of sheer curiosity, is that hole between the badge and the tom mount for an internal mic?

Re: Any Aussie Ebay-ers?

I've noticed the same. I suspect it's a combination of the strength of the Aussie dollar, plus the fact that these people are buying en masse from the States... plus not that many people are buying!...
