Re: Yamaha Rock Tour

I have one in a textured ash finish and I really like that finish too. The matte is quite different from anything out there as well, but as you probably know you'll be paying a little extra for that...

Re: Getting away from the hi-hat

I play in church too, and it all it depends on the song! I try and switch it up 50/50 throughout the service. Maybe 50/50 per song, even. Nothing wrong with experimenting, but I suggest figuring that...

Re: Outdoor photo shoot

I would love to just be able to make my own snare drum. How/where did you develop you skills to get into doing that? Obviously it takes time to design and build them, but does it cost about the same...

Re: ?uestlove's Snare Tuning

I have to say, I use his signature sticks for certain songs and when I play in church, and those sticks actually change my snare sound quite a bit.

Re: your throw off ....where is it?

Somewhere like 8:00. Easily in reach, but that way the drum sits correctly. Meaning the Remo logo on my batter head is right around 11:00, which is always directly above the drum badge, facing out...

Re: Drum Colors & Gigs

Yes, it's important to have a neutral audition kit. That way you can land so many gigs and then when it's go time you can bring whatever flashy monstrosity of a kit you want. ;)

Re: Yamaha Drums

Local drum shop, Huber & Breese in Fraser, MI. They ordered it direct from Yamaha, and I think it's coming from Japan. They put it on a ferry to California then it ships to Michigan. They said it'd...

Re: What have you forgotton to take to a gig?

I forgot my throne a couple gigs back. We were only about 20 minutes away from home, but I called my brother and had him bring it up with him since he hadn't left the house yet. Well then he gets...

Re: Yamaha Gigmaker Drums

I hear they're good! The build quality is excellent, especially for an introductory drum. Yamaha's hardware is second to none. But honestly at the price point I don't know why anyone taking drum...

Re: Yamaha aluminum snares: Anybody using them?

I have a Yamaha Steel snare that I got to sound pretty amazing. Got more than a few compliments on it when I used it. I can only imagine the Aluminum one sounding better. Of course what I did was...

Re: sell my ddrum dominion maple for Yamaha Rock Tour?

What do you want to know? :) They're pretty awesome for the price, and my Rock Tour has been great to me.

Re: Zildjian Customer Service AAA+++

I have to assume they're working on running changes to make them better. I would hope so, anyway. I bought the 20" A Custom EFX shortly after experiencing a crack on the 16" version. Of course, it is...

Re: What size is your main snare? Why?

I really like the sounds I can get from deep snares. Even when I crank it I still get a nice, deep hollow sound to go along with that crack and I love that combination. My main snare is currently a...

Re: Yamaha Rock Tour...

It's a great kit for the price. Of course I'm still waiting for the day when I can afford an even better one, but in the meantime I really have no complaints about my Rock Tour.

Re: Your approach attacking really hard songs.

Yep. Where on easier songs you might be able to stop at step 3 or 6 and then you'll look up live videos and sheet music later to really polish it off. On more complicated songs it's going to take...

Re: Transporting your drums and "load in"

I've been playing for 13 years and gigging for about half that. I only just got cases for my drums three months ago. Makes it a lot easier to carry everything in, that's for sure.

Yamaha LOUD series snare. I have the 14x7" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G8i4T7XLBmE&feature=related) but they also make this 14x5.5" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t8H76NI9SXc&feature=relmfu)...
