Re: LUGS , TENSİON RODS , STRAINER?

I don't know what those are, but 8 will be slightly more focused than 6, slightly less than with 10. But it also depends on their weight, and how much of the lug touches the shell. So tube lugs with...

Re: LUGS , TENSİON RODS , STRAINER?

Of those items, the lugs will have the most obvious effect based on the their density/weight, shell contact, and number of them. Basically, the more metal on a drum, the more focused it will be. The...

Re: Ludwig Neusonic

Wow, I didn't realize there was such a premium on a US kit! Even with the rate exchange, that's really high. :(

Re: Ludwig Neusonic

Other than the available size consideration, they'll both sound great mic'd up. I just like the Neu. better.

The Club Date spurs are fine if you're not playing really hard.

Re: Cymbal Brands

Just repeating what Sabian's intention was. The regular APX is very 2002-ish, and the APX Solid has more of the Signature's cut. I've broken my share of cymbals from the big-4 companies, but Paiste's...

Re: Cymbal Brands

Comparisons are somewhat subjective, even cymbals that appear comparable can sound quite different.

The most obvious attempt at another company's model was Sabian's APX, aimed at the Paiste...

Re: Ludwig Neusonic

The Club Dates have a full roundover edge with more head-shell contact and a more pronounced fundamental note, and the Neusonics have a sharp edge for more attack. Sort of a Classic Maple vibe, but...

Re: Drummers on Neil Diamond Songs

In NYC, I believe Herb Lovelle played on Cherry Cherry, etc. If not him, I'd guess Gary Chester, but details/credits then are sketchy.

Hal Blaine was Neil's favorite drummer, and did a lot of the...

Re: Beatles-What Goes On-Ringo

If you count snares on 2 & 4 - as most pop/rock songs would be - then it's 194. :)

Fast anything requires good wrist & finger technique. No real secret, just the necessary looseness so that...

In the interest of fairness, I put a gun to my head.

Re: Have you ever have someone in the audience tells you your playing a song wrong?

Never had a negative comment from a spectator, and occasionally get a compliment. :)

Re: merch

My local bands have CDs, and occasionally a t-shirt.

With Al, there are currently 2 tees, a Hawaiian shirt, a cap, socks (!), a grocery style tote bag, enamel pins, and a few DVDs. On the 2018...

Re: Most useful electronic drum sound

Tambourine is #1 on my list, I use a sample of my own (old) Rhythm Tech tamb that's been used on most Al albums since about 1992.

Claps would be next. Both normally triggered from a pedal, but...

Re: How did you start getting "loose" on difficult fills?

If you mean getting comfortable, that's just a matter of the familiarity and interdependence that comes with practice. The only 'technique' I know of is to do something over and over until it sounds...

Re: Real-life examples of rudiments applied to drumset?

Interesting, I can think of only one applicable song, and it's a jazzy piece.

The Fisher Fidelity Standard LP (1972) had a track called "Song For Lynn" with Grady Tate on drums. He took a few...

Re: Why so many C & C kits on TV

Thanks for that. I'd only heard it in a TV studio. :)

Possibly, idioms/terms come from all sorts of far-reaching origins.

Re: Why so many C & C kits on TV

Hmnmm, I've seen a C&C kit on TV maybe once or twice.

But the brand depends on the drummer, not because a manufacturer supplied drums for use on a show. Even if there was a house kit and it was...

Re: If you had a drum tech, would it change your set-up?

No, my set-up is always appropriate for the gig at hand - no more, and no less than required. Having to handle the gear is just the cost of doing business.

Even on tour where someone else...

Re: keeping the rim click steady and consistent in sound

The actual RimRiser is pretty cool, it lets you grip the stick better and sounds like a rim click (as opposed to the wooden ones which have an obviously woody knock.) But you still have to control...

Re: keeping the rim click steady and consistent in sound

Even a slight shift in the stick placement will make a noticeable difference in the sound & pitch of the click. A slight difference is just the right psycho-acoustic touch, but I agree it can be...

Re: Those of you who use less cymbals...

The gig at hand governs which and how many cymbals I use. On tour I use a ride, China, 3 crashes and hats. For most local gigs, I use a crash-ride and a smaller crash, and occasionally just the...

Re: At which point do polyrhythms stop sounding cool and start sounding academic?

Exactly. Music shouldn't have to be analyzed to be appreciated, it should simply be felt.

Re: At which point do polyrhythms stop sounding cool and start sounding academic?

Add Dave Brubeck's "Take Five." They all work because you can tap your foot to the music, without stumbling.

For me, that's the answer: polyrhythms/odd-times stop being cool and become strictly...
