Re: Groove and studio recording

If you are recording the drums first and the track involves the whole band grooving, with deliberate push pull, call and response, playing up set dynamic levels etc. then it is vital to get the other...

Re: Comparing oneself to others (drummers)

Music should not be competitive and although there are a few common factors it's pretty hard to compare given musical choices and requirements. For example, I have played in situations where I just...

Brady Stave 14 x 7 listen here

Rather than posting a picture I thought I should point you in the direction of this little video clip which features my Brady stave 14 x 7 tuned up pretty high. Lots of attack but with more body and...

Re: Mapex Saturn vs Premier Genista

I recorded /gigged with one of the first issues of Premier Genista for a little over decade. sizes 20" 12, 14 in Damask Red. Of all the premier lines this is the best. I loved those slightly retro...

Massive side snare action here

Re: Anyone prefer standard depth?

It's always struck me as very odd that std snare drum depth sizes are 5.5 and 6.5 inches. After all toms and kicks don't generally have this 1/2 inch increment; maybe it's historical. I don't think...

Re: Completely out of touch old fart irrelevant opinion - but,

Sorry what I meant was that laptop music will probably last no more than 10 years from now. Trust me I was there with the original Akai MPC and have seen some of the variants.
Seen many laptop...

Re: Completely out of touch old fart irrelevant opinion - but,

Modern acoustic drumming i.e.. drumming on a kit has only been around since about what 1910 AD. So given the rapid rate of change in most things it's actually pretty amazing that we are still...

Re: Audio only snare drum comparison between...

"Without a doubt, bias entered into the view of all listeners simply because Larry told us the identity of snare A and B up front. And one was even the 'holy grail' BB. Sure they were mic'ed and...

Re: Audio only snare drum comparison between...

Rather than offering up reasons for this and that maybe the BB is just a better drum (to my ears under this mic in this room with this player). If I was lucky enough to be in the studio with these...

Re: Audio only snare drum comparison between...

Larry,

That's a really useful side by side comparison. Nothing fancy but it definetly does the job and quickly too. I really like the sound of the BB. Maybe even more useful might be benchmarking...

Re: It's the room not the kit !

But........ to reply to my OP this particular room sound was more dominant than any other factors. So in some cases not all things are equal or add up in way you might expect. Maybe spend less on...

Re: What drummers need for a gig

Re: What drummers need for a gig

For cases my recommendation for typical weekly gigging would be what I consider mid weight hard shell plastic (eg hardcase or enduro). I have had mine for many many years, other than the straps they...

It's the room not the kit !

A story which may resonate with some.

So last night I turn up to rehearse with a newly formed heavy blues soul band. The band leader asked me to just bring breakables to save on tear down setup...

Re: Trusting others with your kit?

Like many on here I have a gigging kit that can be used by support acts /other bands. It's a cherry red yamaha MCAN fitted with pinstripes for a little more durability. I supply two cymbal stands hi...

Re: Tuning "experts" mini rant

A sign of someone who can really tune a drum kit is if the drummer/tech specifies before beginning the process what sound they are going to achieve and then delivers it. It's pretty easy to get one...

Re: How do you stabilize a virgin bass drum that jumps up and down?

Take a a couple of 6" nails and a hammer then secure that kick to the floor. Problem solved. Come on don't be so precious.

Re: Am I the only one here that hated the Kick Port?

What a lot of mugs we are. I include myself here.

Kick port works but only on certain bass drums with certain limited head choices/tensions. I run a Yamaha MCAN 22" with fiber skin reso with...

Re: Led's Latest Page

Bonham was allowed a whole lotta latitude with the drumming in Zep. But hey it's solid creative, powerful and at times sensitive. Ginger Baker is just jealous and needs to understand that not...

Re: I need a bigger car for a bigger kick drum

When not on kit shares, hired kits or in band van then my personal ride is a hatchback. For me a VW Golf GTI (diesel) MK4. When I bought it I actually tested that I could get all my cased gear in and...

Re: Recording a great snare sound?

First off, it's very important you enjoy the recording session, don't get overly stressed as this will alter your playing. Ultimately good drumming is more important than worrying too much about...

Re: Middle aged bands. How should they dress?

Depends on the band. My preference is simple black shirt green combats. Never ever been questioned in over 20 yrs of gigging. I leave the 3 piece suits to Mr C. Watts and the spandex to Tommy Lee.

Re: Combining Different Hoops..Anyone Tried Doing This?

You get the largest differences changing both sets of rims e.g diecast to triple flanged to wood.

However, I run unmatched rims on certain ringy metal snares. Specifcally diecast on batter side...
