Re: Metal drumming without double bass

Just to pick nits..

"if he did say what you said he did, show us."

Re: A Rethink on Recording...

Don't know about the C-4, but the Behringer C-2 pair are great little drum overhead mics. Best $50-60 on condensers you can spend.

Re: Who are some better "Metal" drummers?

I don't really subscribe to all those various genre sub-classifications (wtf is post-hardcore? it's all either rock or metal). Increasing complexity while increasing in musicianship, it's generally...

Re: How to become a 'local' drummer

I feel your pain. I grew up in Charles County. I keep tabs enough on SoMD still to know that performing arts are even worse than they used to be.

Check out My Brothers Place and HotLicks (both...

Re: Homemade Bass Practice Pad???

Get a mesh bass drum head and put a pillow behind it. Same rebound, same attack feel, no noise.

If you happen to have a crappy or unused bass drum laying around, make yourself a separate practice...

I know this thread is old as hell.. but just came across it when I was searching and would rather add to this than start a new thread.

Both are $50ish new.

Also, 2 XLR cables for the mics if you don't have any. Finally, you'll...

Cool yeah, just got an email a bit earlier this evening. Hope they get things worked out, nothings more annoying than recovering from getting your website hacked.

Re: Seat Height

I sit higher so my legs slope down a few degrees off of horizontal. I prefer heel down playing and as I'm 6'6" this higher height enables it.

Re: The Taming of a Bass Player

I'm a bass player. I don't know the dynamic of the group so I'm just going based on what I see in the video.

The bass player may be loud, but the vocal and the drums fill out what the bass is...

Re: Right-handed, yet left-footed.

I'm the exact same way. Lefty for everything except guitar and computer mouse.

I've got left foot bass drum, hi hat and ride on the right. Basically, it looks like a left handed, open hand setup.

Re: Do you play covers exactly like the originals?

When I first started playing, yes. It helped me build coordination and my ear. But now that I'm proficient, I never play note for note.. I could, but that's boring. I basically play how I would...

Re: Anyone here right-handed but left-footed? or vice versa?

Re: Who still puts a pillow/blanket in the bass drum?

In the DIY/crafts section of Walmart I found some 16"x16"x1" seat cushion style urethane foam inserts. Lay them down flat on the inside of the shell (mine are 16"x22"), stick a few pieces of double...

Re: Open-Handed Drumming

Very cool.. this is exactly how I play. It's basically a left handed drum kit setup for open hand.

When I first started none of the usual set ups felt very natural or comfortable - wasn't a...
