Re: Music notation software with "cymbal cross"?

That is very nice. I just noted a bunch of patterns I've been working on. Great to actually here them.

Re: Renoun 5 pc groove kit or Pro M??

Between those two I would be leaning toward the Gretsch. I'd have to do a serious AB session but the Gretsch I think is a bit more kit for that money. Just my perception. Not really based on any...

Re: Best metal kit: Saturn, Orion or Starclassic

Which came first the chicken or the egg? Who knows? Doesn't matter. Both are great kits. At this price range I think any kit SuperTim picks will be money well spent.

I just wish I had more room in...

Re: Best metal kit: Saturn, Orion or Starclassic

As I stated the Orion shells are thicker. 6.1mm 7 ply Orion vs 5.1mm 6 ply Saturn. And the Orion are all maple. No walnut or other wood to be found.

From the web site showing Orion construction;...

Re: Cymbal angle because of weight?!

My Paiste 2002's do the same thing. Always seems they spin so that where I strike them will be right on the logo. My hats do it too.

Re: Best metal kit: Saturn, Orion or Starclassic

Quality? No
Sound? Yes

The saturns have very thin shells 5.1mm 6 ply, 4 north american maple and 2 walnut. Play them if you can. You'll immediately hear it it. The Orions are just a bit thicker...

Re: Best metal kit: Saturn, Orion or Starclassic

My vote would be Mapex Saturn, but then I'm biased. I own them.

Had a guitar player come by the house yesterday and he said he couldn't believe the sound. He said the kick sounded like it was...

Re: Rebound for Dummies... Don't Drum and Drive

Don't play and drive... Jeez!

I do this too. I practice ghost notes and the solid two and four on my dash (with a stick) just to the left of my steering wheel. Left hand of course.

Re: It's been 13 years... it's time!

I've never seen the black chrome hardware, but I have seen the rootbeer burst set in person and they are very very nice. Then again I'm a sucker for sparkle finishes.

One thing to remember is that...

Re: It's been 13 years... it's time!

Seven piece kit and I have the hanging floor toms so I can't comment on the spring loaded feet.

I was wanting to buy either Gretsch Renown Maple or a Pearl Masters or Tama SC performer birch...

Re: It's been 13 years... it's time!

I have the Mapex Saturn kit and It is wonderful. Play one if you have the chance. Quite a wide tuning range.

Re: Bruce Lee and Drumming technique

Brilliant observation. I would also recommend "The Tao of Jeet Kune Do" by Bruce Lee. A compilation of the notes and sketches he amassed in preparation to create an encyclopedia of martial arts....

Re: Teachers. The good the bad and the ugly.

Amazing responses. Thank you all.

I'm not concerned -from my point of view- in the cost of the first lesson.

Phil Maturano makes some points that really resonate with me. I have a pretty deep...

Re: Teachers. The good the bad and the ugly.

Thank you. This all helps quite a bit. I will go for my first lesson soon. I get the first one free because I bought the kit. So well see how I feel after half a dozen more or so.

Thnx again.

Teachers. The good the bad and the ugly.

Hi guys.

I am -so far- an unschooled drummer. I have a musical background, but drums... about four months. I can play along with the radio and keep decent time on standard 4/4 or 6/8 type stuff....
