Re: GOOD Craigslist stories?

I answered an ad for a guitarist looking for a drummer 7 years ago. To this day we are in still in a band, and I was the best man at his wedding last year.

Other than that I have bought and sold...

Re: How to trawl craigslist for deals

I have made thousands of dollars by buying low and selling high on CL.

One lady was selling her husbands drums (he left her, so she was selling cheap). It was mostly crap, but in the corner of...

Re: Metal drumming, help me choose between theses 3 sets

I have always been a fan of Tama, and I have owned a Rockstar and a Starclassic Maple, but after my last set of Mapex, I would go with the Saturns. They are amazing drums, with hardware that is...

Re: Is made in the US really that much better?

Im interested in what you are hearing from musicians about Peavey. I have owned a bunch of Peavey amps and I swear by them. For my money the 5150 is the best high gain amp ever built. I would say...

Re: In the studio

This is interesting. Is the person you have mixing it doing any drum edits? If you are just giving him raw tracks and asking him to mix without any editing you are really hampering his ability to...

Re: In the studio

Not the biggest fan of extreme metal, but to me the best bands in that genre have the best drummers. It no accident that we know the names of Chris Adler, Derrick Roddy, Gene Hoglan, George Kollias,...

Re: How many RPMs could you withstand from a spinning drum riser and still be able to play?

Using RCF = 1.118 * 10-5 * r * (rpm)2 where RCF = 1G of force. A 6ft diameter drum riser spinning at 33 RPM would create just over 1G of force on the drummer. Roller coasters often exert as much as...

Re: What's your favorite cover (maybe limit to 2-3 songs) that your band plays right now?

The only cover we do is Godzilla. But much more in the FuManchu fashion than the original BOC version. Pretty good jam, and its a sneaky song. Nobody knows what it is until the chorus, then the light...

Re: Got stage names?

Depends on the gig. Some nights Im "slow down", some nights Im "play quieter", one time I was "have you ever played the drums before?" Bummer that one didnt stick, I was kind of fond of it.

Re: New Drums from Mapex

2 things sell drumsets: name and price. I go to a local show at least twice a month and I always talk to the other drummers about their gear. The two answers I always get are "I could finally afford...

Re: Most Random bit of equipment that's failed at a gig

I use a stick bad as a holder during gigs and hang it from my 16" floor tom. One night the bottom rips out of the bag. I look down mid-gig and realize all of my spare sticks were all over the floor....

Re: Forum Utilization Down

This is exactly what I was thinking. The forum then was almost less about drums and more of a social media platform. I feel like I knew those people and we all interacted with each other on a...

Re: Is made in the US really that much better?

A couple of stories.

1. Sylvania moved a majority of the manufacturing of their lightbulbs to china in the mid-90s. After a couple of years they moved the manufcturing of the HID bulbs used in...

Re: Are DW drums still cool?

Isnt buying something because other people think its cool the opposite of being cool?

I personally like DW, and my more recent purchase has done nothing to disuade me from that opinion.

Re: Slayer Final World Tour

No, Slayer was the headliner, they had their normal drummer.

Sounds like Anthrax and LoG had subs.

Re: The gig that you turned down, and it's a good thing you did!

Somewhere around 2005 the hardcore band Hoods was looking for a drummer to fill in on their european tour. Through a friend of a friend I got an audition and spent a few hours jamming and hanging out...

Re: Slayer Final World Tour

Saw them a few months ago on the first leg. LoG definitely stole the show. Their relative youth and the energy of their songs just make for an amazing show. I have seen them a half-dozen or so times,...

Re: craigslist mental cases!

I have a better one. We had a CL ad up for a singer and ended up with two "Daves" showing up to jam on the same night. It was super akward, but they were both cool about it. I looked through the...

Re: Drumming & Singing Simultaneously

Beat me to it.

I have no problem singing and playing the drums, but I have a terrible voice, so I dont do it. Singing and playing the guitar, now that is a skill. I swear there is an interlock...

Re: Just an excuse to post a pic of my kit

I had a classic Luddy maple for a couple weeks, and man I wish I had kept it and put that wrap on it. Very few things in life I want, but a clear Vistalite and a black Maple are two of them. Just...

Re: Do guitarists generally dislike rests on drums?

I have this argument all the time. I would rather have no drums than play something that doesnt serve the song. I am a big fan of dynmaics so dropping out for a few bars can really add something if...

Re: Questions for metal drummers on the forum

I did. push/pull is two strokes with one wrist motion. heel/toe is two strokes with one ankle motion. so is the slide technique. As I said, its all about rebound control. Using the rebound to get the...

Re: Questions for metal drummers on the forum

The key is rebound control. Nobody playing extreme metal plays singles. Its all forms of double stokes. I think Lombardo was the last guy to blast playing singles. Learn slide or heel/toe for the...

Oh no. those are maple shells. You want them to breathe. I like single ply heads so I play G1 over Genera Reso's. Brings out the character of the drum. Even if you like 2 play heads, I would...
