Re: Forum Utilization Down

Re: Important announcement - Guru Drums

Hi Andy, I'm very sorry to read you had to make the decision to quit, what I presume, is your greatest passion / hobby / job.
However, there comes a time when you have to set priorities and living...

Re: How important is knowing the songs?

I think it depends on the band, the genre and the setting. For either one it can be acceptable and / or common.

However, another aspect is the interaction with the public. I prefer musicians...

Re: Recording with E drums

I have both an E and A kit set up for recording in my home studio.
For the E kit you have the option to record the sound (when using a drum module) or the MIDI data (or both).

If you want a...

Re: What do I buy and do?

First of all I would like to compliment you with the trouble and time you are taking planning how to play the drums. Your new neighbors should be happy with you!

On the A en E-kit topic, my $.02:...

Re: Lefty drummer problems

I'm a lefty in every aspect (writing, sports, whatever) and play a lefty setup - with a twist: I play open handed, so snare with the left hand and hihat and the ride cymbal (also on the right side,...

Re: Can Cheap Buckets Sound Good?

Cool video and cool playing.
The bucket had all-purpose on it, so why not use it as a drum, right ;-)?
I wonder what he is using as sticks. They make 2B's look like baby toys.
And I never thought...

Re: Quiet Setup Review: RTOM Black Hole/Zildjian L80

I hope you get the RTOM bass head to work as you want. Being European as well, the RTOM and Super Pads are pretty expensive over here. Just compare how much they cost in the US...

I guess the...

Re: Quiet Setup Review: RTOM Black Hole/Zildjian L80

Oh, and to add: in the current active thread about hydraulic heads it was mentioned those are also good for quiet playing.
Well, I have to disagree as I just compared an Evans black hydraulic tom...

Re: Quiet Setup Review: RTOM Black Hole/Zildjian L80

Nice review, thanks for posting.

Recently I have been experimenting with silencing my acoustic drum kit as well.
I bought Evans Sound Off pads years ago, including the kick drum pad.
I got a...

Re: Just Came From Terrible Audition - I sucked!

If only one band member showed up and the others didn't even took the trouble, I would have thanked for the opportunity and walked away.

It sounds like they are better of with a sequenced /...

Re: Gretsch badge question

Well, I can see your point and why it would annoy you but why bother?
If you're gigging, the audience wouldn't notice the (absence of a) small tom badge anyway. Like GruntersDad said, a larger logo...

Re: Matching Gear, Cool or Dorky?

I would say if this wrap suits the image and style of music you want to represent, go ahead.
Not only wrapping the drums but the (bass) guitar and combos as well is taking it a step too far for my...

Re: Woeful suckfest :(

Re: Tune Bot - Worthwhile or Not?

I have been using the Tune Bot for years and it is a great tool.
Like any tool: some like it, some hate it, some don't need it (or think so).
It is great for quickly tuning your drums consistently....

Re: The Cheap Snare Thread

I'm sorry to disagree, but don't you read the thread before posting? Acrolites usually aren't cheap over here in Europe.
And this topic wasn't meant as the Great Acrolite Thread (there already is...

Re: The Cheap Snare Thread

Some deviating answers, although the 1st post seemed pretty obvious...

I'll chime in with a few suggestions, European priced (BTW: I extended $ 250 to EUR 250):

- Gretsch Renown Maple 14 x 6,5,...

Re: Does anyone actually do gigs with large bass drums any more?

Cool, if it works for you then itīs fine. That is all that matters.

Re: Does anyone actually do gigs with large bass drums any more?

Just curious: you don't use resonant heads on your toms and bass?

I don't mind smaller drums as it is the sound that matters - although the bigger-is-better bias always seems to be in ones mind -...

Re: Seller's remorse

You are basically asking if buying a new set of drums will live up to your long lived expectation of making you happy, more than your Resonators can do.
Other people can only guess, you probably...

Re: Worst Badge in the Business

I can see positive and negative sides on that concept - ;-)
