Re: But What To Wear?

What about the quintessential bowling shirt? Derigur for blues bands but works in many instances. Over slacks it can be classy enough for a corporate gig, over jeans you can do blues, rock, even...

Re: Felt vs plastic

I wish PureSound hadn't discontinued their beaters. I've had the felt come off of mine and had to glue it back on. So far so good. But I'd like to have a spare or two. The shape of the surface...

Re: Antiquing / Distressing drums and hardware

Most of the guitar "relicing" of hardware is done with fairly aggressive acids to promote corrosion. Which has to be neutralized very thoroughly or you will have problems down the road. Also,...

Re: Why the "hate" for nylon tips??

The one thing I don't see which I do "hate" is how they mark up the ride cymbal. I dislike hosting a jam night and finding all these white marks all over my prized ride. I guess I need something...

Re: Help with trying to soundproof shop building

Double layers of 5/8 sheetrock will be the cheapest part of the whole thing. So don't scrimp there. Buy the Green Glue in a tub and get the applicator gun. For that much area it will be...

Re: Smaller thinner kicks with good sound- ideas?

This is the 16" kick on my Sonor Safari kit. Phone recording in a very hard and live room but you can get an idea how deep it sounds.

What I did was use some...

Re: Tricks for faster set up

Agreed about the carts. The number of trips back and forth from stage to car are what eats time. I have a small folding flat-bed cart for when I have my little car packed with PA and drums, but if...

Re: Drum mic recommendations

If you don't need a lot of attack from your toms you can use minimal mic techniques like Gly Johns or Recorderman. Otherwise a set of Sennheiser e604s is kind of a budget standard and very common in...

Re: Tricks for faster set up

Back when I had a larger vehicle I had one of those nylon golf bag things for hardware. I just folded up the bases and left everything else sticking out the top. Wrapped a bungee cord around the...

Re: No more jam sessions for me. I'm done

Great advice jazzin. For soloing in jazz, start with the phrasing of the melody. That keeps the flow of the song going and is a great jump off point. Think of a jazz singer or horn player taking...

Re: No more jam sessions for me. I'm done

In Santa Cruz there's jazz jam sessions on Sunday's at Bocci's Cellar and Monday's at Jerry's Front Pocket. Neither is terribly high end although most players are solid.

I went to see John...

Re: Ever forgotten your hihat clutch?

I use those quarter turn Remo clutches. So there's one on the stand, one spare in the bag (I've heard they break but hasn't happened to me yet) and the original clutch in the bag. When I break down...

Re: using snare of different material than shellpack

Many different snares. Never thought of them being consonant with the toms. Kick drum maybe, and marginally at that. Even when playing a snare with the wires off in a latin beat, it's so much...

Re: "Chameleon" drum selection

In those days Harvey's drums were pretty damped. But a 5-6" deep wood snare should do it.

I recently did a session where the studio had a 6" wood DW fitted with one of those Evans Genera Dry...

Re: Sound proofing Idea

Have to look into that UltraTouch stuff for bass traps where you want different densities.

Typical damping panels are made from Owens Corning 703 rigid fiberglass insulation. This is what you see...

Re: Gear fail - handled beautifully :)

I thought he was going to leave it on the snare. I picked that trick up from a Baltimore guy named Bryant Mills. Sounds like hand claps, great for a funk groove although that song is a bit more...

Re: Sound proofing Idea

35dB attenuation is pretty tough. That plexi room isn't going to do it.

Is the intended room on the ground floor? On a slab? Not sure how you intended to isolate the kit underneath but that's...

Re: No more jam sessions for me. I'm done

Where are you in the bay area? What kind of jams are you going to? I go to lot's on the peninsula and south bay. It's good to play on other people's kits and with other players. And the...

Re: Is it OK to talk about the movie "Whiplash" yet?

Just got back from a work trip to China. Got to see this on the plane. Really agree with a lot of points here. The straining to just play fast was silly. How many times have experienced folks...

Re: Last piece of gear you forgot?

Forgot my throne on a gig an hour from home. Fortunately it was the bass players home town and he borrowed one from a buddy. Hard to find phone books to stack on a chair these days. ;-)

Re: How Does Your Band Set Up on Stage?

I did some workshops with a former MI instructor who would rent some place with a big stage so that garage/bar players could get used to having people 20' away. I actually kind of like it. You can...

Re: Is this a good deal?

Also, someone who has persisted in playing with the bottom heads removed may well be an old school rocker who hits hard. You'd want someone who really knows what to look for to examine the good...

Re: Is this a good deal?

There's a used shop here that would sell that ride for between $100 and $150. The unmarked cymbal may be an older Zildjian, in which case it might be worth $120 or so. The other cymbals may be...

Re: Blurred lines ripped off the "feel"

Moar Cowbell!

From having played both, I can attest that the latin cowbell figure in Blurred Lines is much more difficult than Give It Up. ;-)

Bass line has the same time figure but...
