Re: Drinking beer at a gig

Nope. I'd like to make sure I play at my best. But I'm happy to have a beer or two after a gig, unless I drive (which is often the case).

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

I had a 20x28 (28 depth, don't ask why), and that was definitely a problem. I cut it down to one 20x20 and one 20x8, and I surprisingly often bring the 20x8 as it is easy to fit, to transport and it...

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

There have been a few threads about drum sounds and tuning and now cymbal pitches -- aren't people overthinking this drumming thing?

As far as I'm concerned, and as I have heard when talking to or...

Re: Ludwig Triad Mount or Vibraband on Classic Maple rack toms?

Curious why? Seems like a cool way to standardize and the kick spurs look slick.

Re: What do you think ? Starclassic bb

I think it is a nice color! But the price is probably a bit too high for that kit.

Re: How cool is this?

None of my kits can be considered mint condition anymore, but I'd never bring them to a gig without bags. So much easier to handle.

Re: Why Do Most Compact Kits Have 14" Snares?

"Compact" as in easy to transport or as in small stage?

Kick depth is probably the most important in both cases. Snare diameter not so much.

Re: Best badges in the business

Ludwig keystones of course, they are such classics. But until Yamaha decide to use their plain tuning forks logo as a badge, my vote goes to the old Sonor mallets:

Re: How important is wood type and shell construction for a kick drum?


And remember that when playing live the way the room sounds, the drums are miced (or not) and (most importantly) the way they are played matters more than the drums themselves.

Re: New tom configuration for me 8,12,16 - saved my right shoulder

Beautiful kit and great story, glad you found a solution! One of my kits (with a lot of toms to choose from), has been 10", 13", 16" (1 up, 2 down) for a few years now. Maybe I should try 8", 12",...

This is the step most new drummers don't know about, or fails to execute with enough force. It can't be stressed enough: DON'T BE A WIMP HERE!

Re: Titanium Snare?

Do I remember this wrong, or didn't Dunnett provide Ti shells to DW?

Re: Titanium Snare?

Played two, both Dunnetts, and they were both very very good. As most Dunnett drums the shells were thin, so the sound were not at all metallic ringing, almost wooden.
One drum was 13" (I think 13x7...

Re: Rest in Peace Roy Burns


Roy was incredibly nice and supportive, seemed to be genuinely interested in hearing what we drummers thought about our gear. He will be missed.

Re: WorldMax snare?

In my experience these are great shells and the lugs I've seen have been fine as well. Check the strainer though, they have some model(s?) that seems a little finicky.
In short: good bang for the...

Re: Pros who play low-ish end or midrange kits?

Gregg Bissonette has made a point of using (and lifting) lesser known brands such as Mapex and now Dixon.

There are so much truly great drums today, also at the "low end".

Re: Metronome web site

One of the many metronome apps for your phone should be more stable and likely offer more features. Plenty of free/low-cost to try out on a app store close to you.

Re: DFO hacked again

Never had a problem over there. On Windows 7, Chrome browser, no ad-blocker.
Opened it right now, posted something and clicked around a little -- seems fine to me.

Cool! I'm not sure if I could stand that color, but these are good drums and a kill for that price.

Re: What you hear behind the kit

That is still fairly common, though often there will be a snare mic as well. In jazz and more acoustic music two or three mics on the kit is perfect. I often bring a single clip-on mic - positioned...
