Re: Can you read sheet music?

I can read music, but it's been at least 15 years since I used it actively (playing piano and in marching bands). I'm guessing that I'm nowhere near as fluent as I used to be (especially if I were to...

Re: Matt Sorum

Great drummer, with a lot more chops than most people give him credit for.



He didn't; it was Axl's idea. Mike Portnoy (in one of his many social media snafus) commented on it once, and Matt...

Re: Snare Drum made from Seamless Stainless Steel Pipe

Holy crap! As someone who mostly plays fly-in gigs, I can't even imagine trying to use that beast live :)

Looks very cool, I'd love to have a go on it.

Re: What would be your drummer nickname?

"Who". Because after gigs, people always seem to wonder "Who's that sweaty guy trying to look cool by hanging with that band that just played?"

The joys of sitting in the dark at the back of the...

Re: Mounting a Personal Mixer behind the Kit

Don't have any pics, but I use a Meinl Large Percussion table (clamped to either a cymbal stand or my hihat stand).

I've covered the tray in velcro, so the mixer and DI box I have there stays...

Re: Snare Drum made from Seamless Stainless Steel Pipe

This project sounds a lot like a snare that I briefly played with; it was also made from a solid piece of steel pipe. It was one of the snares available in a studio where I recorded, but I ended up...

Re: Hi-Hats: Tight or loose????

Not super-sloshy, but it needs to have a fair bit of movement. If the clutch is too tight, it just feels and sounds really bad when playing them open.

Re: Drummers you thought sucked,but...

Few guys can hold down those pounding 4th/8th/16th note chugging bass line grooves like Michael Anthony. Before Sammy Hagar replaced David Lee Roth, he was also by far the best singer in the band.

Re: Drummers who don't play/use a ride cymbal.

Keith Moon comes to mind. For much of his career, he didn't even use a hihat.

Re: Rick Allen (Def Leppard)

My mistake, I got the album titles mixed up. My point stands though, he still played the cymbals :-)

Didn't mean to make it sound like I contradicted you, just wanted to clarify your point.

Re: Rick Allen (Def Leppard)

Partly true. The cymbals are acoustic and played by Rick, but the majority of the drum tracks are programmed.

Rick just wasn't good enough with one arm at that point yet.

Re: Odd time signature songs for beginners

The main riff in "Times Like These" by Foo Fighters in in 7/4. Very easy to play along to.

Re: Drumeo - any opinions?

I think it has a lot to do with the ways that some of the main guys behind Drumeo promoted the site, especially in the early days. It often came across as almost purely spam posting across every drum...

Re: So...where do you keep your spare sticks?

Same here. I used to also have a holder on my hihat stand, but I don't think it saved me any time when reaching for a fresh one. So these days I just hang my bag on my floor tom and that's plenty...

Re: Pedal setup - aka. how do people play this?

Yeah, it seems I need to clarify this too. I definitely never meant to judge anyone's chosen setup with this thread; it's posted out of genuine curiosity.

I'm actually a bit surprised though. I...

Re: Pedal setup - aka. how do people play this?

Oh absolutely, variations are to be expected, and that's great! I'm specifically referring to the setups which look like they would require some very uncomfortable or inefficient leg positions. The...

Re: Who uses Moongel?

I use it on my toms to get rid of some of the sustain. My toms aren't dead by any stretch, but I don't need them ringing out for hours either. Get that attack, hear the nice tone, and then get them...

I did. Sadly, I only managed to do it once, and noone was watching.

Re: A Singing Drummer's Mic Set-up

I have two setups that I use. One is a boom mic stand with a gooseneck over my head and a Shure SH55 50s-stype mic. Looks cool and stays completely out of the way of my hands.

He's voice-activated. Possibly also has a touch sensor.
