Re: Putting band name on kick drum head, with multiple bands?

I second that one. I'm thinking of a design for my kick that doesn't have the band name/logo on it but a personal logo or design. I've seen a couple of really classy looking ones lately and I'd like...

Re: Band members with bad timing

You've got to make a pact with the bass player to keep the time solid. If the two of you are in sync, then the rest of the band pretty much has to follow.

My bass player and I are lucky because we...

Re: Sonor Safari or Bop

I agree with the Player's kit. That 20x12 kick sounds nice and I can imagine it working in a lot more situations than a 16 or 18.

Re: Free notation software...

I have tried this before, but I couldn't get the hang of entering what I want to quickly. Speed and keyboard navigation is really important to me, since I would rather not have to drag and drop items...

Re: Country drummers!

I agree. I don't listen to country "top 40" radio, but I have to learn a lot of it because that is what we have to play at the bars. I guess since I don't listen to it regularly, I only hear the...

Re: Country drummers!

Some of those are recorded by the bands themselves, but there are probably about 100 "first-call" players in Nashville that basically rotate through a dozen production teams that generate a lot of...

Re: Anyone suggest good drum bags?

I agree. The regular PR bags are good because they provide 90% of the protection of a hard case with the durable materials, build quality, and added padding inside of the bag, while still being able...

Re: Anyone suggest good drum bags?

Well, they call all of their bags "cases", and even the regular ones are semi-rigid (way more so than the Gator/Beato/etc bags). I can't really squash mine up and stuff it into another bag like I can...

Re: Anyone suggest good drum bags?

I have a AAA snare bag that I bought about 2 years ago from Sam Ash.

Re: Anyone have this new Gretsch snare yet?

The 6.5" deep Legend snare definitely does not have a reverse bead and it is the same design as the 5.5" deep snare. The same 1mm brass shell, the same strainer, the same rims, and the same heads....

Re: Anyone have this new Gretsch snare yet?

My primary snare is a Gretsch 6.5x14 Legend Brass. Here (http://www.drummerworld.com/forums/archive/index.php/t-84282.html) is my review from three years ago when I had owned it for about a month.

Re: THE CLASSIFIEDS - For Sale / Wanted

Got a couple of things up for sale locally in San Antonio, TX, but wanted to give the DW forums a shot as well. Will ship to US for $15. PM me for details.

All items are in extremely good "nearly...

Re: What would you appraise my kit for?

I agree, if the goal is to downsize, then set up just a 1-up/1-down with a hh/crash/ride/crash setup and play that. Just because you have all that doesn't mean that you have to play it all. My kit...

Re: Hey Lefty Drummers

I'm a lefty, and when I started playing (mumble mumble) years ago, my teacher gave me the pros and cons of playing a "left-handed" kit vs a "right-handed" kit. I chose to try playing a standard...

Re: 30 songs in 6 days.

Make sure you note down any band hits or "signatures" in the songs. These are the parts that if you miss them even non-drummers will notice, LOL.

Since this is country, most are simple kick-snare...

Re: ?uestlove

He uses the Signet kit for the day-to-day use when the band is to the side (intro/outro to the monologue/commercials, walk-ons, most skits, etc). He uses the Vistalite kit when the band uses the...

Re: Drummers who don't use cymbal stoppers

I use a set of the Gibraltar flat based stands with that "Swing Nut" top. They work pretty well, except the cymbal does swing up past the plastic sleeve and makes contact with the metal part above...

Re: Drummers who don't use cymbal stoppers

I am a huge fan of using binder clips for all sorts of crazy purposes, but I never thought of this one! Sweet.

Re: Mind Blown - Performing musician meets All State teenager

I've seen that many times. It's funny, because you can take some of the most intensely trained classical musicians and put something outside of their norm in front of them and it just sounds odd....

Re: I feel like I'm in a bit of a pickle.

Treat it like a "festival" gig where there is a backline provided. Bring your snare, hihat, and cymbals and just play.

After the gig, offer to help him tune up his drums and bring some old heads...

Re: Sonor Players Kit from Sam Ash

At my local Sam Ash, I didn't get a chance to play the toms (only tap with a finger), but the kick had a pedal attached to it so I gave it a couple of thumps for good measure. I really liked how...

Re: Drum and Recording Help
