Re: Took a 3 month long break from practicing regularly

This can be true of a lot of things. I was listening to a guy talk about how he took a several month long break from studying English, and when he came back to it he was much better at it than...

Re: Would like some feedback on my hand technique

Thanks for the feedback everyone. I'll give that a try. Initially I notice when taking the earlier suggestions (palms down, smaller strokes), I am feeling a "burning" in the muscle above my wrist. ...

Re: Would like some feedback on my hand technique

They're the Thomas Lang signature, and yes they are big. I used to use a smaller size, but the larger size seems to give me better control and are easier to hold. Similar to using a thick pen...

Re: Would like some feedback on my hand technique

When you mention keeping your wrists flat, do you mean keeping the palms down so the wrists are parallel to the floor?

By the way, I seem to remember that when I started playing many years ago, I...

Re: Would like some feedback on my hand technique

Thanks for the comments. What do you mean by your third comment? Are you saying I'm hitting too hard? I have always been told I am a soft hitter.

Re: Would like some feedback on my hand technique

Thanks for the replies everyone.

I tried lowering the snare to make it more level, and seeing if that would make a difference. Here's another recording.

Re: Would like some feedback on my hand technique

It feels like a repetitive strain injury possibly, and often kicks in within moments from when I start playing.

Would like some feedback on my hand technique

I'd like to get some feedback on my hand technique. The reason I ask is that I sometimes get pain in the area between the index finger and thumb, and it could be that I am overgripping or tightening...

Re: Headphones and electronic kits - bad for the ears?

I had my dad wear my headphones while I played at a volume that was normal for me. He said I had the volume considerably lower than the level he listens to his own music at. I suppose I have very...

Re: Headphones and electronic kits - bad for the ears?

Thanks for the info. That's an interesting idea, but I just bought these isolation headphones and I think I am past the return date. I would like to work with what I have and not buy another...

Re: Headphones and electronic kits - bad for the ears?

Going to revive an old thread here. I recently swapped my current headphones for a pair of isolation headphones, which cuts down on the rubber pad noise. While it sounds much nicer, I am still...

Stress fractures?

Anyone ever have, or heard of, stress fractures in the foot from kick drum playing?

I don't have any symptoms of one, or anything like that. But am just curious because I would want to take...

Re: Would you notice quantized drumming in a video?

Now that I think more on it, here's a question for anyone who has recorded.

What do you do, personally, if you record a track that is completely perfect, except for one little thing that sounds...

Re: Would you notice quantized drumming in a video?

Well, what do I know. :D Not something I've ever had to do personally. I like what's on the track to be an accurate reflection of my playing. I can see though how if there are time constraints or...

Re: Would you notice quantized drumming in a video?

That's if you record MIDI and not raw audio.

Re: Would you notice quantized drumming in a video?

I have made drum videos and to be honest, I think that would be kind of hard. Say I hit the snare a little off beat. I would have to copy-paste that sound into the correct spot in the track, which...

Re: Would you notice quantized drumming in a video?

Are you talking about correcting the drum track to align with the rest of the audio, or aligning the sound with the video?

Print square ones so they don't roll away so easily!

Re: How long before we 3D print drum gear?

I don't think metal is out of the question. They are working on 3D printing human organs after all.

A future generation printer may be able to work with metals, as well as be affordable enough to...

Re: Can you sit comfortably at an E-kit?

You cannot do that on this kit, as there is no room to move the pads around. See the above photo. The toms can really only sit in that one spot.

I did learn that you can get longer pipes for the...

Can you sit comfortably at an E-kit?

I am currently using an e-kit (Yamaha DTX520K), and have been finding that no matter how I position the kit, I can't seem to get comfortable. I either feel too close or too far away, and sometimes I...

What would you call this kind of rhythm?

I just made this cover and am trying to think of what this rhythm is called. I'm guessing a funk shuffle, maybe?
