What's the worst broken thing you've seen?

Putting this here, because it's kinda general and applies to all areas in a drum kit, or possibly a band or stage ;)

So, Vic Firth stuck this pic up earlier:...

Re: Musically, what are you involved with at the present?

Like general folk, it can take a few visages.

Standard metal line up, but include any or all of the following: different types of guitar-like instruments, hurdy gurdy, saxophone, general medieval...

Re: THE AMBIDEXTROUS THREAD

I am cross dominant... psych tests etc have said so. I'm cross dominant and use both hemispheres of my brain simultaneously, though still favour the right (typical left handed thing). I'm just weird...

Re: Room sound isolating help

Put the drummer or whoever it is behind plexiglass. Always works.

But nah seriously...

Umm I think it's gonna be a little two fold. What else can you do to dampen the room the sound is being...

Re: Poll: do you double bass?

#6.1/2 I'd say

I think the real knack is not using it all the time, continuous pedals whilst physically strenuous just means you can switch off. Start dropping beats here n there instead ;)

Re: Unpopular Drumming Opinion Thread

I don't get all the hate for Stagg hardware or cymbals. And their basses actually.
Drums aren't the best I've heard, but the rest of the stuff I mentioned is decent.

I don't get how Pearl (and...

Re: Musically, what are you involved with at the present?

1. How many bands are you in?
Currently one, but unfortunately we've just lost two members.

2. What kind of music does each band play? Instrumentation?
Well we were doing thrash/death metal...

340+ pieces... one must raise the question of why. I know "cos you can" is the most likely answer, but even so. Where's the limit?

I'm a goofy hander, but oddly have always been right-footed when it comes to sports.

Learnt the kit in a standard right hand set-up but when I bought my kit it immediately got stuck out in an...

Re: The X-factor in drumming

Personality would be a big one.

Yes, timing, the right attitude, etc are all very important. But I'd rather not be in a band with robot. Yeah, those guys are great for session, they're great for...

Re: My new line of custom cymbal stands.

My cowbell stand is a clamp and drumstick... I lost the rod a while ago and improvised. It works :)

Plus I get the extra playability of having the stick to tap. Or at least that's My excuse.

Re: UK national drum fair review. Vintage kits - lots of pictures

They were made like that. In the long history of drums there have been some crazy shapes and sizes.

In fact, I'm sure if you dig deep enough, you'll find a few in this forum ;)

Testing

Hey guys,

I've been testing products and such for a few years now, but never done anything drum or music related. I was wondering if anyone knew anyone looking, or a link to websites, or whatever...

Re: How to protect your ears while testing out gear?

I just use basic foam inserts you get at music venues for like 50p a pop. I used to work in one so I got a whole box which should last Me. If I don't have them on Me then I cup a hand over My ear....

Re: Thinking too much while playing (counting)

For Me it became internalised quite quickly but I still go back and just tap out the fours sometimes if I'm stuck.

Find the tempo and click out four with your drumsticks before playing. That's...

Re: Bands with Two Drummers - Is There Really a Point?

Watched the Joe Bonamassa gig (Live at the Royal Albert Hall, ft. Eric Clapton) earlier on SkyArts and he had dual drummers.

Rather liked it. Nothing majorly special, each drummer did have their...

Re: Is your drumming so intense you need to use the hick maneuver to keep blood in your brain?

Hell yes!

And drumming in space... I wonder how much zero g would affect our playing? Probably not a lot but oh well.

Re: Dark Cabaret

Rozz is quoted as being like, one of the 80's preludes to DC. In the sense that that's the form of Goth that DC came from. But that's quite a story!

I've seen Voltaire, AFP and EA live, and I...
