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: 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

Re: Snare Trouble

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: Sonor Players Kit from Sam Ash

I stopped into my local Sam Ash this weekend and saw this lovely little kit there. I was in a hurry, but the look of this kit impressed me enough to stop and give it a quick-and-dirty test. I hit the...

Re: Drum and Recording Help

Video wise, not too bad, although I think a tripod would be good so that camera could be higher up (a little over head height looking down at the kit seems to be the most widely used position for...

Re: How to make my kick sound less boomy without using muffling?

Tune the resonant head tighter than it is now. Like, a full turn or two on each lug (assuming that you have it tuned JAW on the resonant head). The batter head gives you the attack, while the...

Re: Gretsch Catalina Club Jazz - Mounted Tom

I replaced the full-sized GTS mounts on my Renown kit with the Ludwig ATLAS mounts. No drilling involved, other than the drilling into the pocketbook for the ATLAS mounts at $50 a pop! I bought them...

Re: Ludwig's new Signet 105 drum line!

Bermuda, I just had an idea.

Perhaps you could suggest to the people at Ludwig that they send out a 12" shell (or even just a portion of a shell) to the various "big box" retailers (GC, Sam Ash,...

Re: Ludwig's new Signet 105 drum line!

TL;DR Saw the Signets in person. I liked the sound, I'm not blown away by the aesthetics, but I think this is a good move by Ludwig.


Long version:

So I stopped at the local GC yesterday to...

Re: Recording with a Metronome

I can't understand it either. It's like he has a panic attack when the click comes on.

Re: Recording with a Metronome

Our lead singer / rhythm guitarist simply cannot play to a click to save his life. I have no idea why, but we eventually recorded without one, which worked out fairly well except you cannot go back...

Re: Ludwig's new Signet 105 drum line!

I like the idea, but I have two concerns.

The first is that I would imagine that after a few years of playing (with all of the micro vibrations from the hitting the drum) that the lugs would...
