Re: Writing with the weak hand?

Re: am I the last one to know about this technique for playing lower volume on cymbals?

Re: extreme tom angles and snare tilt

He has the toms over on his extreme left, and the snare is down extremely low. It almost looks to me like he he did not have the time to finish setting up. But, as stated before, he does a good...

Re: 24" bass drum - 10" main snare, surely not?

The kit sounds great, I just can not get used to the sound of small snare drums, even the sound of a 13" sometimes bothers me. Perhaps, there is some kind of music where this will sound good....

Re: Bass drum makes windows vibrate

Take a piece of plexiglass, and if you can afford it, lexan (polycarbonite) instead. If you can, do not place the sheet of plexiglass/ lexan parallel, place it on a slight angle to the glass. You...

Re: Great car for a drummer

My last car was a 2005 Honda Civic. I drive a lot between DC and NJ in the USA. I drive a lot and I like a car to handle like a car instead of a truck, or SUV.

Re: Drummer quiz: What kind of drummer are you?

Ok, what is it that prevents me from taking the survey? Could it be that I am in New Jersey? Perhaps, my eyes are too close together? Maybe, they are just too far apart?
