Re: Recording gear dilemma: 2 chan mixer or 16 chan interface?

The Zoom R16 can be used as a standalone recorder and as an interface. It's slightly outside of your budget, but perhaps there are other, similar devices out there.

Re: How to tune your drums and decrease that snare buzz?

I am the same way now. When starting out with tuning, I used to worry about sympathetic buzz. I don't really notice it any more, until I throw off the strainer and it's not there.


In terms of...

Re: Poor practise facilities:-(

I'm new to this sort of thing but when I was looking into recording I did come across a guy building a recording studio from scratch. He was putting a lot of work and effort into it, so these...

Re: Thomann

Glad to hear that, too. My local music shop (Scheerers in Leeds) usually works out about as cheap once you take into account shipping costs, but sometimes the convenience of not having to leave the...

Re: Problem with Stroke's Aim

I definitely remember having the same problem when I was beginning.

There are some occasions (certain methods/techniques) which cause the stick to stray from side-to-side.

I don't remember...

Re: Thomann

I have come across them when shopping around for items, but I was always hesitant to use them due to the fact that they're not in the UK.

It's nice to hear some good stuff about them. Thanks!

Re: Controlled Bounce?

As Jeff said, the idea of accenting the second stroke is not to be able to play that particular dynamic rhythm, but in order to emphasise the control over that second bounced stroke, rather than,...

Re: Controlled Bounce?

The only difference I know is that "rebound" is more of a thing happening away from something, whereas "bounce" can be in both directions. At least, that's how I think of the words.

I wouldn't say...

Re: What is this technique called and how do I practice it? (Metal Drumming)

Firstly, I would forget about trying to apply a special stroke technique to this. Just use whatever you would use normally. There shouldn't be any need to switch to something else.

As mentioned,...

Re: how connect video camera to laptop?

Re: Recording my Drums as a means of developing my sound

In terms of hardware, I think that you would be fine with either a Mac or PC (i.e. non-Mac computer) if you spent the same, or similar, amount of money on them. I've never used a Mac because I grew...

Re: Heel Toe Technique Query

Jared Falk has a rather lengthy video on pedal technique. He has a couple of other guys with him; each of them goes through the technique that they use (slide, flat foot and heel-toe).

Re: R&B/Gospel/Hip-Hop drum tuning HELP

I did a lot of research when I was tuning my snare - it was all useful in some way or another and the information helped a lot, but I tuned my drums by ear in the end - and came across an interesting...

Re: Stroke Technique

Thanks a lot, Jeff.

I did take a look around before posting, so I saw a lot of mention of your book and the material contained within. Looking at the sample pages, it looks like it's just what I...

I quickly realised that as I was thinking about it.

At first, it seemed that the difference (in terms of dynamics) between the full and down strokes and the up and tap strokes was too much but,...

Re: Stroke Technique

That's what I thought. That's what I've been trying to do so far.



This is what worries me, really. I find that playing dynamically is natural enough without having the sticks in...

Re: Do other drummers do this?

"Learnt" is more common in the UK (where I am). To me, "learned" feels similar to "teached" or "sleeped" (except in certain circumstances, like "my...

Re: Do other drummers do this?
