Re: Chris Adler Mapex snare.

Haven't played it but they look nice. I'd love to get one... I've always wanted to go with a dual snare setup. One standard size and one smaller like the chris adler snare.

Re: New intermediate level drum kit

Love my mapex meridian birch. Funny thing is that I went from a mapex saturn, to the supposedly lower end birch kit. I ended up liking the sound of the birch kit better. It just better suited the...

Re: just picked up a mapex meridian birch

This is a bad picture because I took it with my phone. I think my wife has the camera so I'll post up another shot after she gets home from work.

So far I'm really liking the kit. In the reviews...

It's too late right now to play it. I just got done tuning it, and have some more fine tuning to do tomorrow. I'll let you all know how I feel about it when I get more time to play with it. I must...

Re: Electric Drum kits

yeah, I'd love to have my acoustic set and an electric set, but enlisted pay with 3 kids just isn't that great. I'm going to trade in my acoustic and throw down some cash to get the electric. There...

Re: martial arts and drumming

I've taken Kenpo for 6 years and don't regret a day of it. It can be done but both hobbies do require large time commitments to excel in. I know I went to about 4 classes a week and studied martial...

Electric Drum kits

What's everyones feelings on electric drum kits? For years now I've avoided them like the plague even though I had probably not actually ever toyed around with a high quality kit. I think I may...

Site Suggestion (for sale / wanted sub-forums).

Rather than a thread that is stickied, I think that "for sale" and "wanted" should have their own sub-forums. I know that's how most the off-roading forums that I go to usually do it and it just...

Re: My First Acoustic Kit - Your Advice/Opinions Appreciated

I say buy the top of the line the first time around. I've learned that from experience that if you buy a cheaper kit with good hardware, you'll just end up buying a kit again. If I did it over...

heel-toe and power?

Well I've spent the past week practicing heel-toe on my kick drum practice pad and can get a good steady beat going. Only problem is now that I hook my pedal back up to my kick drum it just doen't...

Re: double bass

I reccomend going out and buying a kick drum practice pad. One of the reasons my double bass workouts in the past have been short was cause it gets repetitive and annoying to anyone that isn't you. ...

recording drums?

Any of you know any decent tricks for cheaply recording drums? I tried to just use my normal hand held video camera, but when I loaded the video to my computer the bass just drowned out the sound of...

Re: Thinking of leaving my teacher

I think being thrown right into the pit is the best way to improve your skills. I would try to find someone to jam with. I know that can be a tough thing to do, as I have problems with that as well...

Re: NEW DRUMSET, MAPEX SATURN, PEARL MCX?

I've never even seen a gretsch kit so I really couldn't compare the two. As far as looks go that is another item that I love about my mapex. The laquer finish on it makes it really stand out. With...

Re: NEW DRUMSET, MAPEX SATURN, PEARL MCX?

I own a mapex saturn. When I bought it, it was used and was a 5 peice at the time and was custom with the 24" bass, and 13, 16, and 18" toms, and a 14" snare. I bought my kit used for 1400 bucks...

Re: Add Best Buy to your Shopping list

Re: Barefoot Drumming

I generally play barefoot. On occasion I'll play with my boots on when I come home for lunch and am too lazy to take them off but want to play still. However my preference is to play bare footed. ...

Re: To Double Bass or Not To Double Bass

Re: To Double Bass or Not To Double Bass

I'd say go for it. There's nothing that says if you own a double bass pedal you must always use both pedals. I think it could only enhance your playing. Matter of fact my all time favorite band is...
