Re: Cleaning Black Beauty snare shell?

Thanks for the perspectives. I'll continue to research and check out that angle.

There is a reference here http://www.vintagedrum.com/restoration_tips.htm about using Simichrome on nickel-plated...

Cleaning Black Beauty snare shell?

I have been searching Google and this forum for days, and I can't seem to locate an answer. I recently purchased a Ludwig Black Beauty snare (large Monroe badge, 5x14, tube lugs, P85) used, and the...

Re: The stick to brush switch

FWIW - Have you seen this video by Zack Albetta? Great brushes video, and he recounts a technique he saw Jeff Hamilton use to switch between brushes and sticks. See around 12:00-15:00.

Re: Rockband Drums: good practice?

Re: Rockband Drums: good practice?

Santa brought Rockband to our house this year. It surely has helped to increase my kids' (6- and 9-year olds) interest in drums and singing. Before Rockband, my son only had interest in playing one...

Re: Neil Peart

I hear where you are coming from. Setting the term "jazz" aside, one thing that I'm not sure about is how the term "groove" is being used here. However, if the term can be applied to any Rush tune at...

Re: Do you prefer wood or steel snares?

I like maple as my main snare with aluminum as my auxillary snare. Maple matches the rest of my drum kit better soundwise, especially when the snares are off.

Re: Steve Smith- Drum Legacy "Standing on the Shoulders on Giants" New DVD

FWIW - I have the "History of the US Beat" and the "Art of Playing With Brushes Video". While both of these are great videos, I think the Legacy DVD is a step up in terms of historical analysis and...

Re: Steve Smith- Drum Legacy "Standing on the Shoulders on Giants" New DVD

That DVD is an incredible DVD. The performances are spectacular, and there's a ton of things to digest. I have a bunch of drum DVDs, but many of them I don't go back to. I think the Drum Legacy DVD...

Re: "Gretsch Drums are a drag."

FWIW - The Cindy Blackman album that Billy is referring to is awesome IMHO. The comments by Billy should not scare people away from getting her album. Very good album to introduce people who don't...

Re: How do you get a 12" tom to feel lower?

Yeah - I think you are technically right on this. Physics on it probably doesn't net out right even if the hoop clears. I was also thinking that even though the average height of the shell goes up by...

Re: How do you get a 12" tom to feel lower?

FWIW - I started to run my floor tom, throne, hi-hat, and snare drum about 1-1.5" higher. It doesn't let me get completely flat on my 9x12 over the 22 bass drum, but every little bit helps to get tom...

Re: It's depressing

Congrats! The Nitron Glass wrap is stunning looking.

Although I don't have a New Classic snare, I have a Gretsch New Classic 3-pc config. Awesome drums. Last set I'll ever buy (famous last words)...

Re: It's depressing

Trip,

Well your mileage may vary, but for me my appetite for expanding my snare collection decreased significantly after getting those wires on. That said, when I tried those same wires to replace...

Re: It's depressing

I have an Acrolite too (late 70s vintage). FWIW - I replaced the wires with 20-strand Puresound Customs, and I swear it sounded like a $500 upgrade to me.

Re: Hi-hat (foot and other) technique?

larryace,

Thanks for the perspectives. I have had a similar experience so far with respect to the tilt. It doesn't affect things that much for me.

As for felts, haven't quite figured on the...

Hi-hat (foot and other) technique?

I am trying to better master use of the hi-hats with respect to different dynamics of foot splashes (e.g., hitting with heel first), foot chicks, sizzling, getting the hi-hats to slosh around (a la...

Re: Mixing 3/4 4/4 5/4 jazz ride

FWIW - another concept that Steve Smith's History of the Drum Beat DVD exposed me to was using a 3-3-2 concept on the ride to play in a 4/4 type setting (e.g., ding ding-a-ding, ding ding-a-ding,...

Re: The best snare I've ever heard...

Like That Guy said, I think micing has a lot to do with the sound he is getting. I heard Roy Haynes playing this snare drum 2 nights ago in LA from about 10 feet away - live and up-close it didn't...

Re: Neil Peart

Re: Vintage wood snare equivalent in "economics" to Ludwig Acrolite

That's awesome info! Thanks much. I often reference one of your posts on the Acrolite. Will definitely add the Ludwig Pioneer to my search list covering vintage drums.
