Re: Matt Johnson reflects on Jeff Buckleys "Grace" ... great video

Yes but.......take a look at some of the JB videos from the 90s Mat's rack tom angle it's too steep for him to be considered a credible drummer.

Tips for easy loading - my car my way

I am sure many on here as regular gigging drummers have to go through the grind of loading/ unloading our own cars/vans/ pick-ups at least once a week. It's not glamorous but it is a reality. What...

Re: Bass Drum Volume / Running Through PA

Get up get on up

The more padding you put in a drum the lower the volume will be, conversely no padding will cause a slight but real increase. On top of this you will get a broader range of...

Re: Comparing oneself to others (drummers)

Music should not be competitive and although there are a few common factors it's pretty hard to compare given musical choices and requirements. For example, I have played in situations where I just...

I recorded /gigged with one of the first issues of Premier Genista for a little over decade. sizes 20" 12, 14 in Damask Red. Of all the premier lines this is the best. I loved those slightly retro...

Massive side snare action here

Re: Anyone prefer standard depth?

It's always struck me as very odd that std snare drum depth sizes are 5.5 and 6.5 inches. After all toms and kicks don't generally have this 1/2 inch increment; maybe it's historical. I don't think...

Re: Completely out of touch old fart irrelevant opinion - but,

Re: Completely out of touch old fart irrelevant opinion - but,

Modern acoustic drumming i.e.. drumming on a kit has only been around since about what 1910 AD. So given the rapid rate of change in most things it's actually pretty amazing that we are still...

Re: Audio only snare drum comparison between...

Rather than offering up reasons for this and that maybe the BB is just a better drum (to my ears under this mic in this room with this player). If I was lucky enough to be in the studio with these...

Re: Audio only snare drum comparison between...

Larry,

That's a really useful side by side comparison. Nothing fancy but it definetly does the job and quickly too. I really like the sound of the BB. Maybe even more useful might be benchmarking...
