Re: Rudiments: Limited tempo range?

I'll never forget when I stumbled on the intro to "Manic Depression" by Hendrix with the wonderfully wonderful Mitch Mitchell on drums. I wandered onto some instructional videos on how to play the...

Re: Drinking and Drumming

Yupyup, it did come a bit late this year.

I saw the title and scrolled down till I found the angry guy that refuses to even smell a beer before he plays.

I sat in on an open mic night last week...

Re: Snare sound with Hot Rods?

Can't help with the rods, I never liked how they sound on anything.

I would recommend a thin pair of maple sticks. Maple is lighter than hickory so you get the feel and sound of an actual...

Re: 12" wood hoops? Is there such a thing?

These guys sell them: http://www.champagnedrum.com/

They're in Canada so there might be a little more shipping. I'm not sure if you're looking for wood hoops like on a bass drum or the Yamaha...

Re: anyone own or tried the DW concrete snare?

Sounded like crap from the videos that I heard. There was a thread a while back where everyone was just tearing that poor drum a new one.

Derek Roddy has one and he was quick to come to its...

Re: Bid like a man!

I bet that poor sod that lost out on a beautiful Supra thought it was stupid too. I however, don't care what he thinks because I have the Supra, so I win.

Re: How can I make a shallow snare sound deeper

You're very welcome.

Let us know how this experiment works out. A snare of that depth really is a bit more limited than say a 5" but I do love a good tonal experiment.

Re: How can I make a shallow snare sound deeper

Bermuda shared an old studio trick a while back; take a 13" head and place it upside down on the batter head or a couple sheets of printer paper stapled together. It'll give you a deeper, gated snare...

Re: 1 up, 2 down - opinion on FT sizes

+2. 14" deep kick drums is where its at.

15" FTs are cool too. I just scored a set of 15 and 16" FTs. They sound wonderful. I think I can get away without a rack tom with this setup.

Re: 1 up, 2 down - opinion on FT sizes

Personally I'd go for the 12, 14, 16 setup. I find an 18" FT a bit limited in what it can cover. The 14" is fine for a rock setup and also does Jazz and everything else you'd need.

Re: Gretsch Stave Snare Mod - Question

Doooooo eeeeeet...

I have thought about doing this with one of the thicker 80's Ludwig shells. I just need to make a new friend out of a bored drum-guy that has access to a lathe.

Re: Show us your 3 piece kits!

Andy, that is actually one of those new Vic Kicks. I was drawn to this because of the foam core as opposed to the cork of the Vater. Basically the same attack as a foam beater but with much more...

How about a different 3 piece?

My church setup. 20x14 Rogers bass drum. That's a 13" Drumcraft in this photo but I have recently added a 12" Rogers tom and a Rogers bracket.

Re: Enjoy !

Thanks for sharing Tony. I love the big goofy grin that Abe has when he's playing the ride. That'd be a drummer's dream, playing Ringo's actual kit.

Re: LUDWIG 5.5" SUPRPAPHONIC...

I much prefer the 6.5" depth. Having just obtained a 402 and playing several Supras and LM400s I can say that the extra depth is much more my style.

As Al said, Ludwig doesn't need to care what we...

Very nice Mart! With the gear you now have you could play any kind of gig. That is a snare and some cymbals that you will never outgrow. Diddles are coming along nicely too. Check out the 5 stroke...

I should clarify that the first part of that rant was meant to be facetious. Sorry if I expressed that clumsily.

Re: Unknown brand drumkit - Can You help me please?

I can see part of a logo on the snare/floor tom batter heads and the bass reso. Looks like "VF" or something. Not any brand that I'm familiar with.

I'd walk for anything over $100. People who...
