Kaces and H&B Tuxedo bags. Happy with both.

Re: Using Left Foot Hi-Hat, Does It Help Improve Time?

Groove or time? A pulse is not grooving so and it appears everyone here is talking about keeping time.

The short answer is no. I keep time internally. Every part of me keeps time. I really...

Re: comparing two new sets, Ludwig or DW?

I thought it was a typo too - a really bad typo because it was all over the GC site - but I checked DW's web site and DW makes a 23" bass drum.

Me, I'd take DW (with a 22" bass drum) all day...

Re: Can you practice buzz roll on a drumpad?

I can buzz/closed roll on just about any surface that offers rebound. I'm guessing you have an issue with your technique rather than the surface you're practicing on.

Re: Won Used Ludwig Classics off ebay

Clearly not a 22x18 bass drum either. Looks like a regular 22x14.

Re: Won Used Ludwig Classics off ebay

Based on the bass drum spurs and the badges, I'd say 1986 or so. My problem is I don't remember (and can't match up in any catalog) the combination of spurs, badges and mounts and I don't remember...

Re: What sticks to a snare drum? (Help stop my triggers from bouncing away)

No pictures from me because I don't trigger any longer. When I did, I triggered a snare drum only. Visualize this. Get a 4" strip of really sticky duct tape. Don't use crap. Place the pickup...

Re: What sticks to a snare drum? (Help stop my triggers from bouncing away)

Duct tape worked like a charm for me. I probably used a 4" length of it though. I kept my trigger near the edge of the drum and cranked up the sensitivity.

Re: ludwig swivel nut

Be careful removing the lugs. You can snap the fasteners off with ease trying to remove them.

Re: Identify this Ludwig kit

If I could see the bass drum spurs I'd have a better idea, but I'm guessing a late 70's Ludwig Big Beat. Worth double that amount, if not more.

Re: drum friends - help me out with this idea...

Remember, a waltz is a feel and not a time signature. You might want to reevaluate your thinking. I'd probably look at something with a heavy half-time with the back beat on 3 in the 3/4 measures...

Re: xylophone beginners questions

Don't sell it short. It actually has three keys. C, F and G. And 1.5 octaves.

Re: What drummers need for a gig

Sticks, 2nd snare drum, bass drum head. I also carried one of these -

Re: need help counting

I'm torn between 4-4-6-4 and 4-6-4-4. I doubt it matters either way because the phrasing breaks up nicely for either method of counting that section.

My sticks rest on the "butt crack" created by my knuckles.

Re: Looking for help choosing a pro level drum kit

I'd find a decent set of drums and some versatile cymbals and be done with it. Obviously you're at a point where you don't want to be using crap, but you also don't want an expensive set of drums at...

Re: Tips for learning 7/8 time?

You really want to subdivide in method that fits the feel and flow of the music. For instance, if the backbeats are on the 3rd and 7th beats of the measure, you are not going to want to count 1 - 2...

Re: musical notation question

That's exactly it. The feel/time is going 1-2-3, 1-2-3, 1-2-3, 1-2-3 with a lovely triplet feel and you're going to stuff 4 notes into a space where musically they do not belong. Rhythmically it...

Re: musical notation question

And 6/8 (or 12/8) is a triplet feel counted in two and there is no natural way to write a 4-note 16th pattern in the beat.

So, I would write it as four 16th notes with a 4 over it. I haven't...

Re: 1975 - guess the drummer :)

I couldn't have told you that this was Simon Phillips. I could have told you it WASN'T Vinnie Colaiuta though. The year (1975) and location (London) don't work.
