Re: Anyone else notice the cost of sticks getting ridiculous

If you think the sticks are bad check the prices for the wires and mallets.

Re: The official, "Your services are no longer required" thread

That's the truth. And being in a union does not necessarily help either(learned that one the hard way this year. But then it's rather suspicious that step-daughter wrote some slanderous things about...

Re: Playing with people standing behind you

While I do not have not started gigging(have lots more to learn first). However, my 5 year old likes to come along behind me while I am practicing and grab my phone(plugged into an amp) and insist on...

Re: Weird Al Wired

We have not even thought about selling the "all about the cash", although besides thought of doing a video(thwarted by fact I can not sing and at this point can only do a basic beat on drums). There...

Re: Weird Al Wired

Speaking of parodies. What exactly constitutes a parody? Can it be simply changing the lyrics to reflect even a political or personal opinion of something. Say like the song "All that Bass" rewritten...

Re: The being fired or quitting thread

While I personally do not like guns, I would find offense to that one because it is no ones business what you have or don't have. And it would have me wondering why they want to know and suspecting...

Re: Injured my back - can't play - what's my stuff worth?

My drum teacher who also seems to sell drums, cymbals and hardware(seems to be mostly used and some vintage stuff) has said one of the problems he has with selling the drums is the shipping costs so...

Re: Arguement with Guitarist over time signature

I believe binary is a system of 0's and 1's. For computers which processes it as either on or off.

Re: Some thoughts on keeping time

My drum teacher has told me something similar. But he also stressed that with the band he is in that he has to make sure he is keeping time because he sets the tempo for the rest of the band and that...

Re: Unpopular Drumming Opinion Thread

And he got to be a "top recording engineer" how?? If he heard some really cheap awful sounding cymbals he just might start to change his tune. you know the kind where when the cymbal is hit you can...

Re: What do you think about Casey Cooper (COOP3RDRUMM3R)

Those opinions or "critique" is what new drummers(started taking lessons in July) like myself take weekly lessons for-to help keep us focused and to point out when I am making errors and give me...

Re: Just a G.A.S. observation

I find the small hands leave lots of fingerprints on the cymbals to drive my OCD into overdrive. which is why I resorted to putting cymbags on the cymbals.

One thing I have noticed about...

Re: I need to make my room and my drum set sound proof!

The mute kits mute the drums somewhat but not completely. With them on my drums I can clearly hear the drums outside(older home with questionable insulation). In addition to the neoprene mutes for...

Re: Hit like a girl

Hit like a girl implies that a girl can not hit very hard. I have to agree with the person that said girls are taught not to hit, punch or fight. Parents generally do not find pride in a girl that...

Re: Snares vs cymbals

800 cymbals? and 87 snare drums? If these things are like gremlins, I am in trouble! Currently have 2 sets of hi-hats, 3 crashes(one is cracked-got it that way as a way to see what sounds I like), a...

Re: What do you think about Casey Cooper (COOP3RDRUMM3R)

Casey Coopers playing style simply overwhelms me. On some of the slower songs it seems he leaves the stick on the drum head(something my drum teacher does not want me doing).

Re: My Teacher Is Really Pushing Me

If your teacher is bypassing the stuff you can do, it probably is because you already know how to do that and he wants to teach you more things. I am sure there's all kinds of different rudiments and...

Re: Bringing up that cramping issue (again)

Re: How to protect your ears while testing out gear?

When testing the gear out, I guess if you wear ear plugs or the headphone type ear muffs, you would muffle the sounds you are looking for. However, when we take my toddler to the music stores we take...

Re: In Person Lessons Vs. Online Lessons

Probably a combination of the two-both have pros and cons. I think the inperson wins though, because the teacher will be able to correct problems right then. Cons would be having to go to the lessons...

Re: More bad news for Bosphorus.

Is it just me or are the logos for Bosphorus and Crescent way too similar? I am thinking there may be some trademark/ copyright infringement happening.
