Re: Tom angles!!!!

this specific splay of the toms always makes me of the kind of non-drummer that can play 2 and 4 but thinks 'budda-budda budda-budda budda-budda *crash* is an advanced fill.

Re: At what point did this seem like a good idea?

Looks like the epitome of all those 'I spent this much on this kewl drumset and I'm not getting one penny less than I demand'-type ads you see day in and day out all over the place. Almost like the...

Re: Tom angles!!!!

That's funny, back in the RMMP days I remember guys arguing that hanging it upside down was more beneficial =)

But the truth is, though most people on earth love music, not everyone gets to see...

Re: How many drum kits are too many?

When I was into collecting drums I only ever had one set up, but there was a period I had 2 set up. Anyway, while I was still living with my parents rent-free I spent a lot of my money straight up on...

Re: Noise complaint filed against me. (Background info included.)

The original story sounds kind of ridiculous. I mean I am 100% ignorant of laws of where the OP lives, but I don't think they can like, pull up in a truck or something and literally *confiscate* your...

Re: Garage sale find: Thoughts, opinions, and help wanted

Seems like one of those deals where one or two of the major pieces are worth the asking price (and then some) and the rest is all gravy. Very cool, good deal.

It's the sort of thing for me where...

Re: street kit ideas

Worked on this a little setup again, today. I wanted to try again to see if I could get it to work with a snare stand base, to cut down on weight and footprint, but it won't work, not without the...

Re: sunk to... craigslist

No other responses... I'll update the ad and repost it I guess. It's kinda long so I figure a lot of craigslisters can't handle that so I'll have to shorten it. Also though it always seems that the...

Re: Letting others borrow equipment

Yea um... thanks. =) Bout 10 years too late for that advice! haha

The details left me long ago (or I repressed them), so I don't remember if he didn't have one, period, or if something was up with...

Re: sunk to... craigslist

If they respond to the ad, that's cool. I'm hoping to find someone 25+, so I automatically skip the teen set that wants to play genres I do not understand. =)



I remember the Recycler.

Re: Letting others borrow equipment

Two experiences to speak of:

A guitar player friend and I went to a 'surf jam' (for surf/instrumental rock) down in Leucadia in 2004 or so. I don't remember how (if I was volunteered to do it or...

Re: sunk to... craigslist

The horror is a joke, mostly. I've used craigslist before, found a guy who was actually in the closest thing I had to a band for a while. But 95% of the time it's flakes and people who don't read the...

sunk to... craigslist

So I say this in nearly every post, but I haven't *really* played for years and recently got the itch again. For the past month or so I've had drums on my brain and have been messing around with (but...

Re: Living in apartment or flat: solutions for practice?

Re: The death of retail music stores

Oh of course, totally... but there are places that put the MSRP on things and get people to pay them because the customer doesn't know. Or they act like a paltry discount is hurting them or whatever,...

Re: The death of retail music stores

I was saddened to learn a few months ago that West Coast Drum shut down during my unplanned/unwanted hiatus from drumming. I used to go there all the time for sticks, heads, parts, hardware... the...

Re: Something that got me thinking

There will always be that guy who insists his gear *is* better because he paid more for it. It's the same for anything where there's branding. The guy with the Vette says his car is 'better' then...

Re: CB700 floor tom to bass drum conversion

I remember having this problem with my first no-name kit back in my early days. We ended up changing the lug inserts over to the standard size. You should be able to buy inserts many places online...

Re: street kit ideas

I'm actually not worried about that, as I'd probably be hitting it pretty light... not laying into it like one might a true kick. but also I don't know why it seems no one has noticed I've said I...

Re: street kit ideas

Thanks; thing is, I have bigger drums I could use, but whole idea is portability and using things I already have. Plus I think it looks rad this way. =) The whole thing is based on this ad I saw and...

Re: Striking the Hi Hat

I'm in the 'there's no right way' camp. Hi-hats can be hit in dozens and dozens of ways, depending on what you are doing. Breaking can occur from: sticks too big, hats too thin, hitting way too...

Re: street kit ideas

Yea I could probably minimize it a bit further if I tried... however there's always been something I didn't trust about a mounted snare as a main snare (side snare, maybe, but that's a different...
