Re: Wood snares---woddy sound. Help

I was going to recommend a 13" too, as others have. That can make the drum sound a little higher pitched and tighter. I have a 13x5 Tama artwood Maple.

Re: are the constant release and heel toe techniques the same?

I've always understood they are two terms, used interchangeably, to describe the same technique.

Re: 5 Double Stroke Roll/Hand Foot Triplet Combinations

Re: groups of 4 fast 16th notes on single bass drum

Ya, I gotta see this. If for no other reason than that I'm a single bass player and constantly trying to improve the speed of my consecutive 16ths. Can you post a video for us beyondbetrayal?

Re: Blushda fill - drum lesson

I could hear you fine. It was a little low but not bad. Great lesson. I forgot about this rudiment, now I need to get back to the kit to practice.

Re: Can I keep my toms low on a 22" kick?

I have a PDP M5. 22" kick with a 10, 12 and 14. I'm about 6 foot. I've tried and tried and can't find a comfortable position for my 12" above the kick (not to mention, for some reason it doesn't...

Re: 68 Supraphonic???

Pretty much what Defender said. I picked one up used a few months ago. I stripped it apart, soaked the rods in coke overnight to get rid of some pretty heavy grime and even a little rust. The...

Re: Unpopular Drumming Opinion Thread

I have enough problems with my single strokes being smooth using matched grip. Traditional grip only adds another factor to hurt my evenness. I admire those who use traditional grip well though.

#2. I just can't come to terms with taking my foot off the hi-hat pedal.

Re: What people will pay

I've been casually seeking a 16" for my PDP M5 kit. They are horribly and disproportionately overpriced.

Re: Drummer Metronome

I second the app solution. There's really no need to buy a metronome these days. So many free apps and programs you get get to do that for you.

Re: Carter Beauford

It's probably because 80% of his drumming career has been with one band. Just not as much exposure as some guys like Porcaro, Weckl, Garibaldi and Gadd. In my opinion, Carter is just as good, if...

Re: PDP Concept Maple vs. DW Design Series

I will admit, I've never laid a stick on a dw kit outside of a drum store but I own a PDP M5 ( similar to the x7) and I think it sounds great.

Re: Ludwig Snare (not supraphonic, not an Acrolite)?

Thanks Steve. Ya, the "snare chord" on there is my janky attempt at replacing an even jankier snare chord (yellow string on one side and wire on the other) that was on it when I got it. The white...

Re: The matching snare

A snare is like a lens on a professional camera. It's something you want to be able to switch out depending on the situation. It doesn't have to match the toms and bass.
