Re: Tight Bass Head

I played a metal fest in the 90s and experienced this same thing with the backline kit. In my case it was an example of the batter being tighter than I'd normally do, plus the firm pillow leaning...

Re: Carter Beauford

I agree that he's a monster for sure, but I disagree about it not feeling "showy or overplayed". While the style of music does seem to lend itself to fantastic drum parts, I do feel that he...

Re: Unpopular Drumming Opinion Thread

stick and head companies were bad too. remember when you could hold a stick and the logo would be between the wood and your hands? And when I first started playing in 1988 that Remo logo was maybe...

I really liked the Paiste sig logo and also the new 2002 logo.

Re: Unpopular Drumming Opinion Thread

for that matter, drummers who only care about a single brand of drums. Am I crazy, or does this apply more to Pearl players than anyone else? They're all great drums dudes, all brands pretty much....

Re: Unpopular Drumming Opinion Thread

I just thought of this one - I get annoyed when non-endorsed drummers only play 1 brand of cymbals. It just bugs me - there are so many great companies out there (especially in the last 10 years!)...

Re: Best way to learn mathcore?

I was talking about this w/ a drummer friend and found this thread, sorry to dig up an old one. I did 1yr as the drummer for one of the bands you mentioned, and I'd say to not think of it as playing...

Re: Will Calhoun

Sorry to dig this old thread back up, but I had some Mad Hats and they were so heavy. The bottom seemed like it was twice the weight of a typical bottom hat. I wish I had them now though, I'd find a...

Re: Unpopular Drumming Opinion Thread

At first glance I thought you were listing the worst bands of the 90s. Also I'm in the 'disliking Clapton' camp, and I'll one-up that:
I HATE THE EAGLES!!!

Re: Unpopular Drumming Opinion Thread

I play for the song with one band and I feel boring sometimes. But other times the song tells me to do cool stuff. As for cowbells, I love them but still don't bring them to gigs because I'm so sick...

Re: Unpopular Drumming Opinion Thread

I don't like it when drummers that have been playing fewer years than me are way better.
I don't like Peart solo's after Exit Stage Left era.
I love roto-toms, octobans, and gong-drums (but donít...

Re: 80's Tama Superstars

did you ever get these drums? I have a kit and find the 9X13 to be a challenge to tune at times (it doesn't like certain heads), but the floor toms are always awesome.

Re: New Bass Drum Hoops for Old Tama Superstars

My kit is already confused about which era its from. I chopped the 12" and 13" toms down to std depths (gasp!) and have coated resos. I also bought a very historically accurate TAMA Superstar decal...

Re: New Bass Drum Hoops for Old Tama Superstars

would be, but I'm too lazy to go after a good match to the existing 30yr old cherry wine! I'm going more natural wood color for contrast (think C&C Player Dates).

New Bass Drum Hoops for Old Tama Superstars

Re: Vintage Ludwig Floor Tom - Out of Round?

I used to let my vintage Ludwig 16" freak me out because of this too. I sent mine off to Precision Drum (not for the hump, just to have the edges recut) and the thing has just sang ever since. I use...

Re: A Werewolf Playing a 1969 Ludwig Blue Oyster Pearl

Ha. Those Cympads are what happens when I visit my local drum shop with only a $10 on me. I didn't even use the top felts before them. Now the site claims each color gives its own amount of dampening...

Re: A Werewolf Playing a 1969 Ludwig Blue Oyster Pearl

Thanks. I used to bring a second crash but just didn't need it. I'd lose the splash too but I was dumb enough to record a song where it really stands out, so when we play it live I need it.

And...

Re: A Werewolf Playing a 1969 Ludwig Blue Oyster Pearl

I couldn't see well enough to notice. I did hear a few kids saying "Hi werewolf!", so that was cool.
