Re: Singing Drummers - Monitors

As others have said, IEMs! Save your hearing!

Since you have the ability to mic everything, why not mic everything all the time? The guitars, bass, and keys do not have to go through the mains in...

Re: Songs whose cover version was more popular than the original

OK, so this has turned into a comparison thread, rather than Bermuda's original premise of the cover being more popular than the original (All Along The Watchtower and With A Little Help From My...

Re: Relative humidity and temperature in room too low?

I think this is much ado about nothing. As someone brought up from the Sonor guidance, the culprit is "extreme temperature and humidity fluctuations." If low humidity were such an issue, one could...

Re: Found an excellent drum quote

Wow! Some great lessons in this thread so far. I heard one a few months ago that has profoundly affected my approach (I don't have the exact quote, so I'll paraphrase). It was in a Paul Simon...

Re: Spam PM's

That is the case on some other forums I participate on; not sure if this platform will allow it.

Re: Tips to stop "The drums are too loud" complaints?

Not simple, but an A-E converted kit is your friend. I used to use my electronic kit (but real cymbals) when the room/situation called for it. Quiet-side dynamics can only take you so far -- a...

Re: Pearl Sensitone Elite vs. Chad Smith Signature snare

But, then again, a used Chad Smith is only a $80-100 drum (I have one). Given how well built they are and how they can be made to sound good, I would be looking at this as an "a" AND "b" proposition...

Re: putting modern spurs on older bass drums?

I'm with Larry and DSOP...do the originals have a fatal flaw, do they not hold the BD in place? I have three BD's: a 76 Ludwig with the curved 1/2" spike, a mutt bass drum with some cheap-ass...

Re: The essence of mastery

Great comments. Last night I discovered a new PBS series (Public Television in the U.S.) called "Soundbreaking" about the history and evolution of recording. One episode was about capturing vocals....

Re: jammin sam drum wrap?

Re: Yamaha Power V Special

I just saw the pics of the kit in your other thread. I wonder if an auto-body shop could give you a good color-match on that bass drum for not-too-much-money (but realize you'll be shelling out for...

Re: Yamaha Power V Special

To the original question, what is really wrong with the Yamaha thru-tom hex mounts? From what I understand, an important part of the YESS system is that the mounts are placed precisely at a node in...

Re: Yamaha Power V Special

One word of caution before you go the re-wrap route. Yamaha tends to glue their wrap all the way around the drum (unlike the more-common asian method of only gluing at the seams). I had a couple...

Re: How much should i charge for my services as a drummer?

Absolutely, and I was thinking the same thing as I was typing the response (although I failed to expound on it). Given the lineup -- singer/songwriter, her established guitarist, and you, the sit-in...

Re: How much should i charge for my services as a drummer?

What Bermuda said, along with this advice. Granted, the venue is probably not paying much. But, if she is the headliner and the ensemble will be paid $600, you'd look like quite the chump taking...

Re: Best bargains you've scored

I picked up a 3-piece kit at a pawn shop for $50. Bass drum was a mystery at first, but turns out it is a Premier that started as a marching drum -- 14x24 3-ply african mahogany with rerings. 12...

Re: Rack toms, virgin bass drums, and ISO feet

Also, the ISO feet are made to accept the small, round, profile of a floor tom leg, not the flat bar shape of a typical stand. I don't think there's enough material on the ISO feet to modify it, and...

From the original post I'm not quite sure if you are looking for a completely hybrid kit or some pads to add some sounds to your pallette. I do the latter with an Alesis Samplepad (still under $200,...

Lot's of good advice being given here, but I would like to point out that EC2's are not necessarily "very muted" or "tone killers." Like anything, different heads and drums interact differently. ...
