Re: Letting others borrow equipment

Was it The Hop by any chance?

The only time I've had to borrow equipment was my bands first gig at a festival in Wakefield, when we were loading the van my bassist for some reason which is still...

Re: Early 50's Rock n Roll - No Floor Tom?

Some really good answers coming in, thanks everyone



Which explains why the setups often look awkward - snare drums at impossible angles etc!

Early 50's Rock n Roll - No Floor Tom?

Hello all,

Bit of a strange topic for you all..Over the last few weeks I've been researching 50's Rock n Roll to take in as much influence as I can, one thing I've noticed is a fair percentage of...

Re: Okay, Who LOOKS The Coolest?

Don't suppose you have any links of him with Little Richard? Hard to find on youtube!

Re: 50's Style Crash/Ride Cymbal

Definitely, the one I'm looking at is a 1960's 18" Zildjian Avedis crash/ride, I've listened to the soundfile of it and it sounds like the one

Re: 50's Style Crash/Ride Cymbal

Thanks everyone for the replies, I do appreciate them.

I've found a few Zildjian Avedis crash/rides on ebay with an attached soundfile which certainly is the sound I'm after, just a case of saving...

Re: 50's Style Crash/Ride Cymbal

Thanks very much for the advice, am I right in thinking Zildjain A is short for Zildjain Avedis? I'm a bit of a newbie when it comes to cymbals....thanks again

50's Style Crash/Ride Cymbal

Hi all, as the title suggests, I'm looking for a vintage cymbal which I can use to crash as well as ride.

I'm looking for a cymbal which has that sound, think....Charles Conner on Little...

Re: Would you pay for a drum rehersal room

If you can find somewhere reasonably priced, then definitely go for it.

My band rent a unit on an industrial estate, we had to fit it out with a PA etc but it's entirely ours. I personally pay 20...

Re: The big debate: tribute bands - yay or nay!?

I've seen a few tribute bands over the years and been in one myself, I am all for tribute bands as long as they more or less look and sound the part. I've noticed recently more and more tribute bands...

Re: Using a small kit - Advice needed, particularly from soundmen.

Thankyou. At the end of the day, it's not a disaster if I have to use the main kit now and again, I've got by hundreds of times before. If I have a 90% 'success' rate I'll be happy

When we get to...

Re: Using a small kit - Advice needed, particularly from soundmen.

There is no problem.

The question, in short: Has anyone ever taken a small drumkit (bass drum/cymbals/snare), and set it up at the front of the stage alongside, rather than behind, the rest of...

Re: Using a small kit - Advice needed, particularly from soundmen.

Thanks everyone, I appreciate each and every reply.

Just to clarify, because I only have a guitarist (who knows what volume to play at) and a fairly softly spoken singer, I'm not likely to need a...

Using a small kit - Advice needed, particularly from soundmen.

Hi everyone, earlier this year I had a minikit/drumkit made. It's a 16" Ludwig floor tom converted into a bass drum, with hi hats, a snare and a ride/crash cymbal mounted on the bass drum. I've had...

Re: What's the Appeal of Vintage Drums? You May Be Surprised.

As a big vintage lover, I think it's about 60% nostalgia, and 40% sound.

Nostalgia: Sometimes when I'm playing, I think about the number of drummers who used my 1960's Slingerland, it was owned by...

Re: Is practicing every day a must?

I'd be interested to know, which of the top drummers (Vinnie, Weckl, Krupa etc) who practiced for 8 hours a day, also held down a full time job at the same time?

I know the life of a pro is...

Re: Okay, Who LOOKS The Coolest?

Gene Krupa for me tops the list, I've never seen a drummer so enthusiastic.

I like the early footage of Keith Moon with The Who (or The High Numbers as they were then known), when he's playing on...

Re: 12 Myths About Drumming

I think Ringo is a classic case of someone who doesn't have huge chops, but fits the music and compliments the other musicians. Sometimes those drummers come along, they just do what is needed.

Re: The beauty of only one kit

I have 2 kits. One is a Slingerland (I posted pictures on here before) which is ideal for the Rock N Roll band I'm in and I keep it down at my main rehearsal room.

I've also just had a travel kit...

Re: Playing live, setting up

I think it's all the little things which all add up and take time. For me, my cymbal case was once fastened too tight at one side (it's one of the old ones with straps), so I can only unfasten at one...
