Re: Whats the weirdest thing you ever broke on your kit during a gig?

The beater broke off many years ago when I was using Ghost pedals. I spoke to some other drummers and I thought this only happened to me.

I am happy this forum lets me see how un-unique I am. ...

Re: Do you call it a kick drum or bass drum?

When I first started playing, many years ago, I never heard the term "Kick drum." Always called it a "bass drum." Lately, I hear others calling it a "kick drum" and have started using the term,...

Re: Non Disclosure Agreements

I do have not any experience with the NDA's in the music industry, only as an engineer and those NDA's were for protection mostly towards patent intellectual property (IP) and trade secrets.

Re: The Drum Set Recipe/Formula

I have two Dynasonics, a 6.5 deep and a 5" deep. Both COB's. It has to be the best snare drum ever. The snap on the snare is just a perfect sound. I like the Pearl hardware, it is very strong. I...

Re: Art and Music Professions worth Fighting For

I am about to upset a lot of you. Because I believe music is a hobby and it will become harder and harder to make a living at music or art in the future. With the technological improvements of late,...

Re: Tension rod equality?

There is one rehearsal studio I was using in the Northern VA area where they had two of their overhead toms with one broken lug on each drum of the batter sides. I was able to tune the drums with...

Re: What are the best sizes for a drum kit (limited space)?

I was kind of kidding about the 3.5" snare. The inch and half difference in thickness does not make much of a difference in storage room. That was kind where I was going. But, I felt a perfect...

Re: What are the best sizes for a drum kit (limited space)?

Since space is limited you may want to get a set of drums that are easy to fold up and store inside each other. So not use two heads on the bass, and floor tom, and store the floor tom inside the...

Re: First drumset - and a few questions

I think the threads are just typical sizes. However, I do not know if they are metric or inch standard. You can replace the screw with something from a hardware store instead of the music store. ...

Re: Foot operated Snare drums?

The foot operated snare leaves the hands free to play timpani drums, piano, or guitar, so anyone can be their own one man band. Just kidding.

Personally I would not use it as a snare drum, the...

Re: Shallow rack tom experiment!

The pancake tom seems to be a good compromise to getting the tom head right in front of the snare. The only other solution I could think of, would be to cut a large hole on the side of the bass drum...

Re: Pretty good argument for tuning tom heads the same

Constructive interference is when you have two waves that are the same frequency and phase and their amplitude is added together. If the two heads are the same pitch you get that constructive...

Re: 8" or 13" toms for add ons?

I do not know about the others here, but I really have a hard time tuning my 10" tom. I have a 10 x 8, 12 x 9, 13 x 10 and a 16 x 16 and my bass drum is a 22 x 18. I have several 14 x 5 snares. The...
