Re: Musical artists whose death saddened you.

I feel that Zappa was especially painful. That man approached music in a way that he created his own genre of music. Once Dwezil retires, I doubt that anyone will ever be able to do the Zappa thing...

Re: John bonham/jazz tuning (this thread again?)

I've also found that in a world that largely just mic's individual heads, and not the full drum kit itself, it's more effective to tune just slightly down from where the classic guys had their kits. ...

Re: John bonham/jazz tuning (this thread again?)

I feel like it's much harder to control highly tuned drums and huge cymbals off the bat. It takes a lot of focus on hitting dead center, and not overplaying your cymbals. Otherwise a kit like that...

John bonham/jazz tuning (this thread again?)

Okay, to switch this up, I'm not asking for a ton of advice on the subject. Sure, if you have some serious insight deeper than "Watch this sweet Ocheltree video yarrr", hit me.

I've spent a while...

Re: Musical artists whose death saddened you.

I've always been a classic rock/garage band junkie, but I have to say that the death that influenced me the most was that of Avenged Sevenfold's drummer "The Rev", Jimmy Sullivan.

Up until then,...

Need some tips on a ~67 Ludwig project

I recently ebay/frankensteined my way into some 67 Ludwigs. Great drums, and they're working well for me. I'm at the point now where I'd like to do a bit of work on them.

To start, I have a hunch...

Re: Unpopular Drumming Opinion Thread

Another one. The only drum setup that I care about is my own. If you want to run flat Travis Barker toms, so be it.

To me it's like putting ape-hangers on a motorcycle. It might be anatomically...

Re: 10 Great Drum Albums...Random List

This is hard. Mine is not my top 10, or even in order at all, just 10 great drum albums:

1. Mutemath- Odd Soul (awesome drum sound, very progressive)
2. Greenhornes- 4 stars (my favorite garage...

Re: Unpopular Drumming Opinion Thread

Drums are scary to buy. I almost always get a touch of buyer's remorse. Maybe it's because I purchase with emotion in mind, I'm not sure. No test ride, (if I could jam with a band before purchase I'd...

Re: Unpopular Drumming Opinion Thread

I think that is the honest explanation of why I struggle w/ jazz too. I can appreciate the standards, but when those guys start messing around in 11/19 time and running their mixophrygian scale my...

Re: Unpopular Drumming Opinion Thread

I occasionally post on r/drums. I lurk everyday though. I'd just rather read than post.

I do the same here. I just lack the commitment (and knowledge) to be a steady contributor.

Re: Unpopular Drumming Opinion Thread

I'll start off with one that'll be fighting words for some of you:

I think Neil Peart is boring. He is technically impressive, but he lacks something... I really can't describe what.

Putting together an Ebay kit

I know that most of you probably already know this, but I just thought I'd reiterate. BUY USED!

Re: Any pre gig routine?

I always try and listen to some jazz before I play a gig. It's not really to "pump" me up, but it just gets my mind thinking in that tight jazz pocket throughout the day.

Re: "I Shall be Released" - The Band

I heard it's a 42 strander also.

I didn't know how he was doing it though. That is pretty neat.
