Re: Drumset vs marching bass drum

Marching basses work great for drumsets. The only this is they are not drilled for spurs so you will have to install your own, get a mat, or use a bass drum anchor to prevent it from sliding around.

Re: Most Difficult Song

I always find it very difficult to play anything by The Who according to the recorded drum part. You just have to completely let yourself go and forget about the idea of just keeping a solid beat....

Re: Question about Snare Beds, are they necessary?

I also just remembered about snare fans that are used on old-school cocktail drums. How much sensitivity would one of those provide on a 10" drum?

Re: Question about Snare Beds, are they necessary?

Right, but drums like Rogers Dynasonic had active snare systems that eliminated the need for snare beds. So I either need to find a 10" version of one of those or create my own.

Re: Trad Advice

Why hasn't anyone mentioned why most jazzers prefer trad grip? While playing ghost notes Trad grip allows you to elevate your arm up very high so only the very top of the stick makes contact with the...

Re: Good Doumbek/Darbuka for a beginner?

I'm willing to play for whomever, where ever to be honest. I agree that bolt tuning is far superior to rope tuning, and I've noticed from videos that plastic heads have much better high and low notes...

Re: tuning a 14 x 14 floor tom

I really found the opposite of what I used to think was a vintage tuning style worked. I cranked up my batter head a couple turns above its lowest point, and tuned the reso. head at its lowest tuning...

Re: Plugging holes on shells?

I have restored many drums with extra holes, and have found a few ways to plug them. Wood fill does work pretty well for cracks, scratches, and smaller holes. An old carpenter's trick is to mix...

Re: Using Income tax money to buy drums/equipment?

Re: Jojo's mayers bass drum technique

I know that he uses pretty much any pedal he can get his hands on and makes them as loose as possible, I've even heard people say he takes out the spring but that doesn't seem right to me.

I plan on converting a Meinl 18X22 Aluminum Surdo into a bass drum, I think it's going to sound killer.

Re: Is it possible to afix two bass drums together?

You are, Alex Van Halen used to do it. There's actually someone on drummerworld who did it. He had a purple set with two 22 X 30 bass drums.

I "heard" this too. I researched it and actually couldn't find any examples of people who had done it an put any less effort into it than they would have making any other drum.

Re: Angling the bass drum

That's how I started setting up, I got the idea by looking at double-bass sets. I just figured if you took out one drum the other would still be in the same spot. It feels alot better. Before my foot...

What did you spend your money on? You probably just need to get the bearing edges re-cut.

Re: Oh my god! What have I done?

I honestly don't know. I got it off a guy who knew nothing about drums and it was one of his relatives. There's no badge, it was used in a pipe band at one point.
