Re: Craviotto price question

I think you're right to be suspicious. Is this a drum they have in stock, or propose to order? If it was me, I'd ask for a photo of the actual instrument being offered rather than just working off...

Yolanda has a pulse / jam challenge for you!

Yolanda put this up on her FB page. I asked her to put it up on Youtube so it's easier to share here. She kindly obliged.

Re: How many styles of music can you play well?

Passably well = MOR rock, simple pop, simple funk. Anything outside of that, I'm purely winging it, but I do import influences / occasional licks from other styles.

Re: Yolanda's 3D holographic looking finish

Sorry for the slight hijack Larry, just answering some questions.

Not the best camera mic recording, but here you go https://youtu.be/GT-Ym1O6UF0?t=2m1s

I'd say neither, & that's why it...

Re: Larry's snare givaway, the eternal gratitude!

Major props to Rotarded, & Larry's karma will be applied in September ;)

Re: Yolanda's 3D holographic looking finish

Dean used to make these before I joined up (& pre anything DW did in that direction too I believe). They were very popular. Must confess, I never liked the sound of them. Don't get me wrong, they...

Re: G-gulp. No pressure, then.

At our stage in life, finding band members with any hair is challenging enough ;)

Must admit, that's never featured in my top 5 reasons to avoid filming the band ;)

Re: G-gulp. No pressure, then.

Very cool! West Kirby's an old stomping ground of mine.

Madge - you've got this, & you have good players to support the vibe. Enjoy it - rejoice in it, & that fun will spill over into your...

Re: Yolanda's 3D holographic looking finish

Finishing these can be a bit trippy, especially when you walk down a whole line of them in the workshop :)

You can see the same effect (but more complexed) when finishing ovangkol segmented shells...

Re: Shellac application videos

Thank you.

Travelling, so brief reply.

Number of shellac coats depends on both the finish required, but also how much is needed to fill the grain if that's the desired result.

Sanding grade...

Re: Building Your Own vs Buying Name Brand

I think it's worthy of note that Larry's primary reference point for walnut sound characteristics is taken from drums / shells with a totally different performance profile to standard constructions...

Re: Should I complete this stave shell?

The out of round element isn't great, & nor is the undersize element. The two together are quite a way short of ideal. Depending on the source wood, the likelihood is, it will shrink a little...

Re: Shellac application videos

I never use oil, precisely because I don't want to darken the finish. Same with the choice of bleached shellac, trying to keep the original tones as much as possible :)


I use a rubber. ...

Re: Shellac application videos

I use a bleached (adds almost no amber) pre mixed shellac from a company called Fiddes (best you can get IMHO). It's not cheap at around $110 / 5 Litres, but worth it. It arrives as shown in the...

Shellac application videos

Just thought I'd throw these up here. 3 clips showing the first shellac application to different shell types. Each one has a different approach depending on the wood species / construction. As...

Re: Question about drum measurements

As a very rough guide, measure between the top edges of each hoop then round down to the nearest inch. e.g. if the measurement is 10 3/4", it's a 10" deep tom. If you want to be more accurate, take...

Re: Do your drums excite you?

Grunt, try tuning the toms way up for a while. That's always a good "wake up", and makes you approach the instrument in a very different way.

Re: Beaters & sticks swap fumblings - funny :)

Very much so. Anyone who screws up is mercilessly jumped on, but always with good humour :)

Erm - nah. He did use bass drum (although differently) on some live performances, but most live shows...

Re: Beaters & sticks swap fumblings - funny :)

In this band, I use them about 6 times / gig.

They can be troublesome. Playing to a click with backing tracks is easier ;)

He's a most welcome upgrade :) Got everyone else looking around to...

Re: Beaters & sticks swap fumblings - funny :)

Yes, a new version has been installed :)

Oooo, now that's worth looking into. I do kind of like my Mike Balter soft marimba mallets though.

Yes, they can be tricky, but this...

Oh, complete failure to plan. This was "sprung" on me literally seconds before the start of this video. I have since nailed the changeover :)

Beaters & sticks swap fumblings - funny :)

So - out of the blue, your new singist suggests you try a track. You think you know it, but you've never played it. Starts with cymbal swell & stop using beaters, then a swift change to sticks. ...

Re: Looking back - 4 piece vs. 6 piece.

I played a string of about 60 dates on such a setup back in the 80's. It was a heavy bluesy skiffle type act. Lots of fun, & a fair learning experience too :)
