Re: The magic of a simple kit

This guy has the goods on the simple, small kit.

It's Drumeo video of a guy soloing in a German prog / summertime insect style.

Very well done. He plays all over the kit.

That doesn't make them better.

Re: The magic of a simple kit

I've never used more than 2 crashes, ride and hats, but I don't get on with a four piece as well as with more drums.
It has nothing to do with being more creative. It has to do with more appropriate...

Re: “To All The Drum Teachers I Had Before”

I've only had one drum teacher.
She was the school band teacher and also the president of the DAR.
She knew snare drum like a demon.
She was about a hundred years old about 40 years ago and...

Re: Current drum trends you wish would go away

That's a rare thing, tilting the cymbals back.
Only a few oddball dingdongs do it, but I think drummers like Anika and Ben Sesar do it for a personal Kansei ergonomic adaption.

Re: Current drum trends you wish would go away

When I was a youngster, it would be considered very poor taste to crash on a ride.

As I got older, it became a standard practice.

A little while later, it became standard practice to crash-ride...

Re: Heads over Shells

The complexities of muffling are probably most blatant in heads, but it's also evident in wood density and edge design.

Poplar drums don't sound bright, and thick heads don't sound bright.

They both can cook, but the younger one is much prettier.

Re: quality of drum sounds to the rest of the band is not important

Have you thought about maybe making tip caps for your sticks out of surgical tubing?
And using jazz tapered sticks?

Re: quality of drum sounds to the rest of the band is not important

This sounds like a good situation for playing with e-drums through a headphone monitor mix.

Re: time keeping/ guitarists

I really don't hear much bad timing in those examples.

What I hear is the drums adding a jaunt to the first sections and then going into a straight backbeat in later sections, all while being in...

Re: Zoom Q2N (Camera) questions.

If you're without a computer, but have a smartphone, it would be better to get a mic for your phone.

Yes, you can edit the video on a smartphone.

Re: Latin Percussion???

There may be a biological reason why hand percussion isn't practiced in cold climates.
Repeated hand trauma is a suspected cause of Raynaud's syndrome, and it's not something that occurs as much in...

Re: Thank You Technology

That's awesome!
Last week I bought Toontrack Ezkeys and have been working up an idea for a composition. It's very simple, but the program needs more functionality, like cut and paste. It works well...

Re: Jojo Mayer - Questions

The Jojo pedal works for me. It's very convenient for me to fold it up every week to bring to band practice. The long board feels great. It has a great feel and balance and I can play fast with it. ...

Re: Jojo Mayer - Questions

It depends on what you were playing before you "upgraded".

It depends on how many pedals you've honestly used with enough time to know if it works or not.

How much would you have to unlearn...

Re: Handling pay & obligations while on the road

Re: Hey Joe: Great drumming or overplaying?

My sentiments exactly.

The Roy Buchanan version of Hey Joe got me to realize that it's a murder song and played polite just won't do.

There's also the Auratone speaker and their copies like Avantone and Behringer Behritone. Little cube mixing speakers designed to sound dumbed down. You only need one because good in mono is good in...

Re: Micing and Recording Tricks?

-18db is a common gain for mic levels at the daw. The reasoning is to leave a lot of headroom for audio manipulation.

Re: 42-strand snare wires

I think I tried 42 strand wires about 42 years ago.
My snare must have had a thin bed. I didn't care for the buzzing or the excessive amount of snare sound.
Even now, I have a hard time looking at...

Re: Sound isolation

You could start simpler by checking where the sound is mostly coming from and reinforce those areas.

I would try the cheap solutions first.

Try blowing in some insulation between the studs. ...

Re: Sound isolation

Spacing is unimportant as long as the inside wall is decoupled form the outside. Rockwool is not a requirement. Pink insulation is fine. Decoupled mass should do most of the work, so you still want...
