Re: If you had a drum tech, would it change your set-up?

My thoughts exactly. If I had some burly roadie to carry all my stuff and set it up for me on a little custom rug marked with my name then I'd probably splurge a bit more. I'd probably add another...

Re: career advise

My mantra since I started playing semi-professionally has been "Act like a pro and they will treat you like a pro." I supplement my income with gigs, still have a day job.

I got a gig at a church...

Re: Was anyone in the audience for Fred Armisen's Drummer's Only comedy show?

yea, I didn't think it was very funny. I don't really care for that brand of awkward humor, never got into his show Portlandia for the same reason.

I did like the bit with all the different kits,...

Re: Matching Gear, Cool or Dorky?

I think this would work for some over-the-top 80's cover band like a Metal Head or Steel Panther type group ...maybe a ZZ Top cover band.

It's a bit of a campy look but if that's what you're going...

Re: Trainwrecks anyone?

Once sat in with a friend's band at this Holiday outdoor gig. Rickety little stage set up int he parking lot of a local bar outside of town.

The bandleader calls out "Devil with the blue dress"...

Re: Saw Steve Gadd last night

I have a friend and fellow musician that worked with the local crew at that show. He was geeking out over Gadd's Yamaha kit, said Steve is playing an 18" bass drum for this tour.

Re: Worst Badge in the Business

I love my Rogers drums but I'm going to have to agree with you there. The script badge was so simple and elegant, the Swivo hardware so clean yet functional. Then they go to these giant square badges...

Re: Drinking beer at a gig

I'm pretty spoiled at the College bar gigs with my originals band these days. I like a nice hoppy beer before I play and then drink tall cans of cheap stuff while I'm playing. Only one other member...

Re: Less is more!

I have been toying with the idea of gigging with a more modern take on a 30's Trap kit setup. Big bass drum, snare, modern hats, ride, splash and a woodblock and cowbell. I think it'd be very...

Re: Impress The Aliens!

(biased answer) I'd send them a set of pristine vintage Swiv-o-matic Rogers. Probably a 60's set with the smooth gray interior and spotless hardware.

Re: Growing drums... order

Ooh, I like these games.

Re: Ludwig Supraphonic - 5" or 6.5" depth?

I was just playing and tuning up my 402 (6.5") at practice yesterday. I like it cranked up nice and high but it also has the the range to go low if needed.

If they're similar prices, I'd get the...

What's that? Some sort of percussion instrument from Morocco?

Re: What did these come from?

Do you have a cart or anything with wheels that was transported with the kit?

I murdered my cheap Harbor Freight cart in the driveway and it left little bearings like that everywhere.

Re: The future of the drumset think tank

I have mused over this before.

The drum set of the future, as I have pictured it, would be a smaller sized kit, basically the logical conclusion of these toy kits that are becoming popular. Each...

Re: LP 24 lug stainless steel Banda snare

It's made for Banda music, basically marching band music so the name of the game is projection. Banda drummers usually use clear batter heads and crank the hell out of their drums. They also play...

Re: Interesting

If you use it for country.

In all seriousness, probably a modern sounding bright cymbal in the rock vein.

Re: You love the idea of it, but you are never happy with it (Drum gear)

Really deep snare drums and huge drum kits (as in large diameter drums). I love the idea of trying to be Bonham or Chick Webb with a 26" or 28" bass drum as part of a 4 piece. I even bought a vintage...

Re: The thing you bought but you never use

I scored an old DW single chain double pedal on a trade, I set it up on my practice kit and used it maybe twice, now it sits in the corner.

Re: Flam taps and Moeller 2's.

Oooh, I like this. Simple, but a very effective workout. Wish I has some sticks right now to try this out.

Thanks for sharing, I really do enjoy your contributions.
