Re: Gretsch Catalina Club Rock Question!

I played the same kit live for a while. I left the bass drum wide open with no muffling and tuned it appropriately, allowing the sound of the drum to shine through, as opposed to a muffled sound that...

Re: BASS DRUM TUNING

After years of going back and forth, I've discovered that for me, no muffling on a bass drum is the best sound. When my bass drums are tuned properly, they don't resonate like crazy. They still...

Re: 16 inch Floor Tom/Bass Drum Conversion

I've built a few floor tom bass drums. I've found that drilling the shells is a terrible idea unless the drum is something you just don't care about. That being said, go with the spurs that slide...

Re: THE DRUM MODIFICATION THREAD.

I really like running over the interior of a shell I'm finishing with a 400 grit sandpaper (once!), cleaning it, then rubbing it down with teak oil. Teak oil is an oil based finish used to...

Re: THE DRUM MODIFICATION THREAD.

I have refinished quite a few drums and my favorite finish (so far, I've tried a lot of different ones) is a floor finish made by Varathane. I use their water based polyurethane for gloss coats. It...

Re: What are your Drumming Prejudices?

My biggest pet peeve is drummers who can't count - and they're everywhere! Sometimes after shows the drummers from the other bands will ask me how I played so well and I look at them and say...

I'm building a micro-kit (as an experiment) with square shells, very similar to a cajon. I plan on using 1/8" maple plywood as the shells. Can anyone tell me if I need to build an internal frame, or...

Re: The Big Kits vs. Small Kits Debate

Big kits are a lot of fun. Who wouldn't love them? Sometimes I play gigs where I just don't want to bring my drums and use whatever's there. I always find it educational to play someone else's set....
