Re: Knee pain from double pedals

I started to get knee pain from drumming but here's the catch, drumming wasn't the route cause of it. It turned out that I had some serious muscle imbalance issues with my quads that was pulling my...

Re: Can you read sheet music?

As someone who learned drums by playing in a band, I don't find sheet music to be very useful. It's difficult to read and I have never been able to make the connection between the notes and what...

Re: Can you read sheet music?

Wow... I think you're in the wrong period of time and the wrong forum.

Please go somewhere else with your opinions about female drummers and women in general. Sex has nothing to do with your...

Re: Practicing everything with both hands

I'll practice some things with both hands but those are usually specialized beats and accents. For example I'll practice my blast beats on both hands so that I can lead with either due to cymbals...

Re: My speed has stalled

I'd say that you need to strengthen your fingers/forearms to reach higher levels of speed and control. This became very apparent when I was learning blast beats as you're trying to be very consistent...

Re: Antiquing / Distressing drums and hardware

If you want to take the chrome off the lugs without sanding I suggest you deplate them using electricity and some DC current.

Re: Felt vs plastic

You should try the wood Vickicks from Vic Firth, they have enough attack up front for metal but the rounded shape of them gives a softer, fuller sound.

Re: Why the "hate" for nylon tips??

Ouch that sucks =(

I can see how that would dent the skins.

Re: Just browsing - cool steel snares

I just replaced the batter head on my Chad Smith this past weekend and I found that I want more depth out of it too. While it's a lovely snare with simplistic beauty I wouldn't mind something that's...

Re: Why the "hate" for nylon tips??

Can some explain to me how you're getting the nylon tips to come off the sticks? Or how you're denting your heads with them?

After 4 years of using Vic Firth nylon tipped sticks I have had ZERO...

Re: Sound proofing Idea

FYI: Foam is more expensive than standard batt insulation and has WORSE performance for sound damping and sound proofing.

If you really want some good damping look into making your own acoustic...

Re: Top 5 Metal Snares

I'll throw in my vote for this snare as well. Awesome for value, tons of volume, beautiful shell finish, and it has a nice crack. Essentially it's an upgraded sensitone.

Re: Is this "Unprofessional"

I'm with eclipse here. If they didn't have the foresight to warn you but had obviously planned it in advance I'd say "tell me when the song is over".

It's their professional responsibility to give...

Re: How stupid is this?

I just went through setting up my kit again, (and probably will again soon, something ain't right), and the kick size definitely effects how the toms are placed. I find that my 12" x 9" has to be...

Re: Ever have a drums finish sway you away from purchasing it?

I think you're on your own with the red = trying too hard.

I will say that Red doesn't look that great when it's a wrap but it's awesome as a stain.

PS: that yellowed white yamaha is looks...

Red drums should be banned??!! I picked my Vision kit because of the Ruby fade that's on it. There was a white wrapped Vision kit I also could have gotten but just like my Velvetones vs Oak stage...

Re: What's your latest purchase?

I just picked up two pairs of Vic Firth SGRE sticks which are Matt Grenier's signature stick. They're in the middle of a 5A and 5B with some added length and the dry tumble finish is nice on the...

Re: What would be your drummer nickname?

Mr.Noodles is what my band calls me, which is a joke on me being half chinese. The other drummer before me was called "Big Red" because he's a massive scottish guy with firey red hair hahaha.

Re: Using splash cymbals

Oops, I see what you meant now XD

There's no wrong place to play a splash cymbal as long as it fits with the song. I find I use my splashes when a crash would be too much during a groove or a...

Re: Using splash cymbals

Within easy reach is the best answer I can give you. They're a nice small cymbal than you can place pretty much where ever is most convenient. I place one just to the left above my ride and one...

Re: Just bought my first kit. How'd I do?

I like the look of the kit! and I think you got a good deal for $450 CAD.

Re: Why do the wooden hoops on this snare have flat straight sections?

Seems like it's for knee clearance around the drum since the wood hoops are probably adding an inch to the diameter of the drum. I know that I've smashed my knees into my snare on a few occasions and...

Re: Show your kits that I don't know about

Check out the Sabian/DW Edge snare that they made a year or two back. Those are really beautiful drums, the bearing edges are made from Sabian B20 bronze. Only 50 were made.
