Re: Biggest snare drum head dent I ever saw....

whoever it was, they seemed to do a good job of avoiding the center of the drum... :P

seeing that does remind me of being back in high school when we would just beat the crap out of our marching...

Re: making faces when playing

You can put me down as another bored (almost catatonic) looking drummer. I try to think about enlivening my appearance: smiling and moving around a little, but I tend to lock in my gaze on either the...

Re: Better gear, Better player???

Obviously - a great player will make a kit sound better than a noob.

At the same time - a great player will sound better, have a more expansive variety of available sounds, greater range of...

Re: What to expect out of a drummer?

If he lacks the chops to play a specific fill or intro - he may need to develop an alternative, i.e. a simplified version of the part that's true to the overall feel of the original part. Just...

Re: Now I've gone and done it...

If you need an inventory - I'd start with Wy's snare drum collection and Bermuda's cymbal collection.

That would cover pretty much everything anybody could ever want.

It might be a little...

Re: who knows where to get precut wrap?

Here are a couple. There are more - but I'm at work right now and I've saved some of those links on my home computer. These are the ones I can remember off the top of my head.

Re: Need help picking out a present

hmmm - the 2nd kit comes with a Supra, a Speedking pedal and what appears to be a decent vintage Zildjian ride cymbal. You could probably sell off just those three pieces, if they clean up nicely,...

Re: Under-cooked chops?

Going outside my comfort zone is less about going for a specific riff or fill (or whatever) than it is about trusting myself to play at a more intuitive level and not really knowing where it's going...

Re: Now I've gone and done it...

not Larry - but it works for me.

of course you'll need to keep your posts to no more than one sentence, I can't seem to concentrate on what you've written... :P

Re: Beginner here: Recommend a Metronome?

you're right -

for some reason, the internet seems to lower my reading comprehension by about 50%

Since nobody else has mentioned it - the Tama Rhythm Watch has been good for my purposes.

50/50 - my Starclassic has cast hoops, my Acrolite has triple flanged.

Those two drums are different in so many ways that I couldn't say how much the hoops are adding to it. At some point I'm...

Re: How important is your left foot / leg?

Well - it's very important. And it's not important at all. The great thing about drumming is that you can really make of it what you want - there's no hard and fast rule that says you have to have...

Re: Making a living playing the drums

Define 'Making a living'.

It means different things to different people. Are you trying to provide for a family? Are you interested in having things like health insurance for yourself and your...

Re: Changing your set up for mic position?

This corresponds to what I've found recording just myself in my practice space. Just one mic overhead and one mic on the kick drum - actually gives me quite decent, well-balanced sound. The same...

Re: Changing your set up for mic position?

I have a CAD mic with an integral clip that mounts directly on the the rim, but it's not a great mic, even if it is nice and compact. I figure it would be good to find a way to use something the size...

Changing your set up for mic position?

So - lately I've been setting up my 5 pc as shown in my avatar, with the two mounted toms on a stand because I like having the ride cymbal in tight (I guess I got used to the ride being there from...

Re: Looking for a product that I'm not sure was ever made

reading some of these replies got me thinking - if you were to go the custom route, you could use a wood hoop for the bottom hoop because it would be relatively easy to cut snare gates and you...

To be contrary - while I do have the same issue as the OP, I often find myself doing the opposite as well.

Re: La Fiesta: Up-tempo Latin Jazz in Three

you are correct - I believe that the band in the link is using the same arrangement that Maynard's band played. Frankly - and it's been awhile since I've heard the MF version, I kinda' liked the...

Re: Teaching your girlfriend how to play drums

one more vote for having a teacher (not your boyfriend). If he doesn't understand, that's not a good sign - yano?
