Re: Die cast hoops

There can be no harm in asking Yamaha, but they're probably going to refer you to a dealer.

It seems Yamaha Diecast hoops are usually found second hand, and for no small amount of money. From what...

Re: What makes an adorable drummer?

Sometimes you guys just miss the humor.

OP: I get it.

Re: Trick VMT Pub Kick

Although I understand the point you're illustrating, I think that's a bit disengenious. I can tell a difference between my internal mounted mic with a head on or off, port or no. There's also...

Re: Anyone ever play in full drum enclosure?

Many older churches weren't much more than the sanctuary. Maybe with an office, some storage, and some bathrooms, but predominantly just the great communal space. Especially in rural areas. So,...

Re: Matching Gear, Cool or Dorky?

Matching gear can be cool, but I don't think it's the right look for most acts. Even the ones where it would make sense, it takes a certain combination of personality and vibe to pull it off.

That...

Re: What do you think ? Starclassic bb

The price might be a bit high, but not completely out of line. If you really like the color, matching snare, and 8" tom, it might be a great deal. I don't care a lot for any of those things, so I'd...

World's first bionic drummer

7 minute or so video on a guy using a robotic prosthetic to use a drumstick. That's not the only impressive...

Re: First jam tonight. Advice? Tips?

Yeah, it wouldn't hurt to bring the metronome and ear piece, but it's probably not the right environment to bust it out.

Bring everything mentioned. You might not need your seat or pedal, but it's...

Re: Why the same songs, when so many to choose from?

There is a regional act that blows through town every so often. They do the kind of thing with covers that really resonates with me.

Some kind of combination of medley, mash-up, and just...

Re: Why the same songs, when so many to choose from?

Epic Soul actually looks like a good time.

If I could make that kind of money doing that around here, I would take that kind of gig. It's not to say that pedigree of gigs don't exist, but they...

Re: A Non-Anonymous Section..?

For sure.

I listen to enough music. Generally, if I'm sitting at my computer I'm probably running Spotify. I'm loathe to stop what I'm playing to listen to some youtube drums, especially if...

Re: Possible to use Pearl Opti-Mount with other tom brackets?

If you can use a drill, the answer is yes.

Re: Why the same songs, when so many to choose from?

To be fair, that's probably fairly representative of real-world demographics as well, especially the further you get away from major metropolitan areas.

Hard blues is pretty much dead in my area....

Re: Why the same songs, when so many to choose from?

This is invariably why cover bands never work for me.

I'm actually fine with the idea of playing for the audience, but there's no reason why the typical weekend warriors can't add a new song to...

Re: New Mapex

So they're using re-rings in a different spot?

These guys really do like their marketing ploys.

Re: Check my logic and correct me if necessary.

It might be helpful to download a programmable metronome app to hear the differences or lack thereof.

Re: Check my logic and correct me if necessary.

The only meaning is what you give it.

There is no difference between quarter notes being played 7/4 at 160 bpm and eighth notes 7/8 at 160 bpm, or for that matter eighth notes in 7/4 at 80 bpm, as...

Re: Should I Quit Band Due to Constant Critiques By Singer?

It could just be a communication issue. You could just be speaking a different language.

I've taken to ask people who can't actually speak music to at least reference some song if they're trying...

Re: Saturn V Tour or SJC?

Sure, they're the OCDP of this decade.

That isn't to say they make a bad product, but the value is dubious, and may hold what value they have worse than others.

Re: Ok, how many of you have "unsuspended" your floor toms?

Imperceptible in any kind of amplified setting IMO.

Re: Keeping Things Light

I looked into those, along with virtually every modern lightweight hardware solution. I invariably end up playing on grass a couple of times a year, and that basically makes flat based a non starter....

that's what I use, and it's absolutely brilliant.

On the bathroom scale, the bag is about 41 lbs fully loaded. Bear in mind that I have a Tama tom tree, floor Tom legs, multi clamp, cymbal arm,...

Re: Thoughts On Short Stack Floor Toms?

I'm sure it sounded great, but I just can't get used to that visually.
