Re: Playing to click - the mechanics

My live playing setup includes in-ear monitors, providing both my metronome and the mix. When no mix is available, I can still hear the rest of the band fine. The ambient noise sneaking past my...

Re: Toms Mounted on Cymbal Stands

The crashes are 17" and 19", with a 23" ride. They all fit fine.

Re: Drummerworld NAMM 2014 meet up

Bo; how does a drummer trick his wife into having her picture taken with White and Purdie, instead of us?!

Re: Bar bands, what's more important...

I agree with Chrome and shemp.
A bar owner once calmly listened to me explain how good my band was, then said: "You could be as good as the Rolling Stones in their prime; but if we don't sell a lot...

Re: A song sprung on you out of the blue?

Re: Vic Firth Hinge Sticks

I use them also, with similar good results. I wish I had them back when I started drumming.

Re: Playing live, with a click

I agree. During rehearsals; if anyone strays from my tempo, I do not follow them, even if it means a train wreck. After a couple of times the other players get it and follow my tempo much better. And...

I think the point of this thread is: It may not be very interesting for us drummers, but chicks dig it.

Re: Cymbal mutes... that don't sound disgusting?

That depends on how much tape. I start with the "Sound Shapers" under the pies. Then I add small short strips of gaffers tape underneath. The top hi-hat gets four pieces midway between edge and bell,...

Re: Cymbal mutes... that don't sound disgusting?

+1 for Sabian Sound Shapers.
Also, a little gaffers tape on the undersides. This combination works great for me.

Re: Help! Acrylic Drums

I have the Crush acrylic kit and love it! It is capable of more volume than a wood shell kit, but they sound fantastic. I use clear Pinstripe batters (haven't changed the stock reso's). I would not...

Re: Wood type in Catalina Club jazz?

The Gretsch rep in my area, (who, btw, is a fantastic drummer) Mike Nieland, tells me it is indeed Luan wood on the CCJ kits. I love mine, the finish is called Walnut Glaze. I bought the matching...
