Re: Whose voice would you like to have counting on your metronome?

The scuba diving breathing between numbers may get a bit monotonous though : )

Re: Mike Bordin

Yep, new album in the works apparently (plus they'll be co-headlining with Soundgarden in next year's Soundwave festival in Oz).

Morgan Freeman- for when your drumming needs that extra bit of gravitas.
(Plus he's the voice for just about everything else so why not)?

Re: Website Issue

The problem is you're the one person still using Explorer?
(FYI- Back buttons work fine with Chrome/ Firefox)

Your reputation as a drummer (and indeed, your manhood) is at stake here. But hey, no pressure....

Re: IMPERIAL CYMBALS RIPPED US OFF!!!

Scrunt bunny?? Scrunty?? You're making this stuff up right??
I remember the term "spunky" back in the 80's (and if you were really hot you were a "spunky monkey"!!).

Re: IMPERIAL CYMBALS RIPPED US OFF!!!

Andy, you do know what we mean by a "good sort" in the Aussie vernacular don't you? : )
Then again Wombat has responded in kind- maybe its just a Queensland expression (or else Wombat actually...

Re: Completely out of touch old fart irrelevant opinion - but,

Wow Andy, way to throw a grenade in the room and run. : )
I think one thing illustrates the old farts opinion more than anything else:
If this is a bunch of tech savvy whipper-snappers watching a...

I don't doubt the power of subconscious for a second and I'm in total agreement with you about people's opinions being coloured by past observations.
My point was the motivation behind their choice...

Re: Audio only snare drum comparison between...

If what you're saying is true, wouldn't everyone have said that the Guru sounded better?
The BB may be considered the "holy grail" of snares (I really wouldn't know but I'll take your word for it)...

Re: Worst song ever

ST are legends (more surprised that a radio station would actually play them).
Out of all the pop / rap crap out there you choose this as worst song??
Turn in your metal head card sir!!! : )

Yeah I'd always imagined he'd sound like a whiny little bi-otch but he actually sounds a bit like Brian from Family Guy which is pretty cool.
As for the snares- has Uncle Larry achieved the...

Without a doubt it has to be that "Better take a selfie" song.

Re: Songs that make you do a double-take when you sit to down to play them

Lots of good points here.
Definitely agree with both Reggae and ncc- I can't stand it when cover/ tribute bands take too much poetic licence with the material they're covering but at the same time...

Re: Pretty frustrated with adjusting to an acoustic kit

Well you've just confirmed my worst fears if I ever went back to playing an A-kit.
You've also gone from a small, hard rubber pad to a large, mylar head so not surprising you're having issues. ...

Re: Shoes with Elastic Bands: Yes or No?

I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw the footwear Gene Hoglan was wearing in his first DVD (and still managed to play amazing double bass)!

Re: Poll: do you double bass?

I'm definitely #7- yep, no doubt in my mind (I'm also extremely modest)....
To be fair- what exactly would make you a double bass "expert" in this regard??
Just because you can reach 2000bpm 16ths,...

Re: Irony?

You've just described deception/ false advertising, not irony.
This thread is like the song "Ironic" where none of the lyrics actually describe an ironic event.
Perhaps Bo was listening to Alanis...

Re: Does anyone actually like big finales?

Can't imagine a metal concert without the OTT finale so yeah I'm a fan of them (as long as it's not done for every single song).

Re: Teeth Drumming

This from a guy named Winegums? ; )
Actually Mr Gums has a point. I think we've all done this before at some point but it can lead to enamel wear if done excessively.
