Re: The old Pearl Exports??

Yeah, I had a set of Exports that I bought new in 86, and gigged them until a year and a half ago. Did some bigger shows with them too, recorded, the whole 9 yards.

Re: The matching snare

I have the matching snare to both my kits, but don't use them, but as many others here have brought up, it's about selling it with the kit later. Its a different thing when you have a bunch of snares...

Re: What's the better option: new or used drum kit?

you can get a pretty decent feel for the condition of the bearing edges just by running your finger around the outside on the drum head. If you feel any irregularities, then you could pull off the...

Re: Licking my wounds from sitting in tonight

I've found that now that I'm older, it takes longer to get warmed up and loose, so I've taken to warming up on my kit or pads at home, before I head out the door to the venue, or band practice. It's...

Re: Does anyone else hate splash cymbals?

I've owned a couple, and just can't get into them. I have it set up on my kit at home that doesn't move yet, but I can't see ever leaving the house with it.
I have a very similar experience with...

Re: Cause of Meter Speeding Up Discovered.

Interesting thread. I've actually discovered in my own playing, is that if I start listening too much to the rest of the band - waiting for a cue or a lick or some vocal hook, I start to subtly slow...

Re: Where can I buy a Yamaha Rock Tour?

I picked up a used set from Long and McQuade burlington back just after Christmas. They'd been one of their rental kits. They had a couple of them, but that was a long time ago now. They do show up...

Re: I won a drum kit

yup, same in Canada. Whatever you win, you get to take home. No taxes.

Funny thing is with other things, companies aren't allowed to just give you prizes for nothing, so they have to ask you a...

Re: Name famous songs where the drummer overplays

what worked for me was when I was younger was I started singing while drumming. That cures overplaying pretty quickly. Basically, if the singer is singing - no drum fills.

Listen to Don Henley,...

Re: First Audition

Some of what I posted above may seem unfair, but the reality is that bands thoughts about what the drummer does, are different that what is expected for a guitar player or other instrument. You'd...

Re: First Audition

I don't know if it's always like this, but I spent the better part of last summer auditioning for bands. Probably tried out for 6 or 7 before I finally stuck one. Here's some things I learned.

Re: can the quality of your throne affect your playing?

yes. Get a good throne. Most important, and yet over looked part of the kit. Don't buy that shiny new crash cymbal, buy a good throne. You're playing, and your health will be better for it. I wish...

Re: Yamaha Rock Tour--Holy Guacamole!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I picked up a set at Christmas time from one of my local music stores. They'd been the backline set for a rock show last summer. I really like them, I finally got to give them a go this week at a...

I think they look really good, and I like all the finishes. Very interesting concept.

Re: Do You Play Another Instrument Besides Drums?

I play acoustic guitar and electric guitar at an intermediate level I'd say, and a bit of mandolin.
If I'm not on the drums I'm usually the lead vocals / rhythm guitarist with the musicians I hang...

Re: New Gear From Gretsch - 2014

I'd guess the Marquee drum line is designed to sit in between the Catalina Maples and the renowns. At least here in Canada, the Cat Maples are between $700-1000 price range, and the Renowns are in...

Re: The virtues of gigging - or otherwise

ah the Zone. That sums it up for me too.
I love playing live for people. That is the start middle and end of drumming for me. I find it really difficult to get motivated to sit at the kit, unless...

Re: Is being over-educated about gear good, or bad?

This is very true. I live outside Toronto, and we have lots of decent music stores around town. Testing out a snare or a cymbal is easy to do.
Typically the drum department is some afterthought...

Re: Is being over-educated about gear good, or bad?

Actually your point is the one I was trying to make. Perhaps I didn't word it well.
I was really just trying to point out that with so much information out there, it makes it harder to choose, and...

Re: Is being over-educated about gear good, or bad?

There is certainly an insane amount of information out there. The trick with internet opinions too, is that you have to read lots and lots of reviews to weed out the good advice from the terrible...

Re: Was Lars' double-bass on the track Dyers Eve a fraud????

yup, he was a huge influence on me as a teenager in the 80's, Ride the lightning is still one of my favorite albums. Battery and Blackened are great double bass songs. I don't really care for...

Re: Pearl free floating question

Your link goes to the right type of bolt, but it might be a little short. See if there's a 75mm version.

Re: Pearl free floating question

According to pearl's part catalog it's a W7/32 x 35mm bolt on the 3 1/2" snare. So you want the same but around 75mm long.
