Re: Filling in badge holes on lacquered drums

This. When I worked in a music store years ago there was a piano repairman who could work magic with lacquer stick's. I saw him paint the grain back in to damaged areas and you could not tell where...

Re: First tuning - opinions please :)

Listening through the monitors in my project room, the character of the drums is very consistent. And that floor tom is killing. I know a lot of folks who wished their kick drums sounded like that....

Re: Band leaders

To Larry's original point, I think crowds respond more to the charisma of a band than it's actual musical ability (unless it's really sucky across the board). Take a solid rhythm section and a...

Re: Drumming pain

That looks like the sort of break that happens from burying the stick. The stick bends, fatigues and splits along the grain.

Sound comes from the head vibrating. The more the head can vibrate,...

Re: How do you not hear your bass drum?

I'm developing a distaste for bass players who have a big fat sound. I've found that in small venues it swamps the bottom end of the kit. Last Saturday I played a gig that was far too loud. Bass...

Re: Where do all the drum sets go?

FWIW, a lot of those guitarists touring with "vintage" guitars aren't really. They have copies made that they can tour with and not freak out about. Page doesn't tour with a '59 Les Paul. In fact...

Re: Drumming pain

For blisters, here's something I got from a bass forum. I was doing some fill ins on bass and getting blisters on the ends of my fingers since I don't play that much. Hemp oil. They sell it at the...

Re: Kickport on 16" BD

Still running the original Powerstroke like heads on my Safari. An urban type drummer I know got a set after seeing mine but immediately put a hole in the front for micing it. Unless you hear it...

Re: Any Suggestions for Ear Plug Filter Strength?

I have both Sensaphonics molded plugs and a set of Earasers as spares. Previously I had some Westones with 15dB inserts.

The Westones weren't molded well and altered the sound too much for me.

Re: is this hearing loss typical for drummers?

Some years ago I was playing on a fairly small elevated stage and had a china tipped up on my right side. On one song I was riding "ands" on it and saw the guitar player wince at each hit. And this...

Re: Recording from EDrum to PC via Cinch - weird sound

If it's just distortion, you are overloading the input of your soundcard. Try turning down the drum brain or module.

If you go into your recording preferences, you should be able to set it so...

Re: Baked Potatoe in Hollywood- AWESOME VENUE

That is kind of ground zero for that kind of music. Major league session cats having fun doing their own thing.

There are two live albums recorded there with Landau and Johnson. Greg Mathison is...

Re: Best vehicle for a gigging band?

If everybody has full stacks, that's probably a pretty big PA. Not going to fit in anything too small. Maybe a trailer and med size SUV. Not sure if any of those are diesels. Maybe a used UPS...

Re: Styles of Drumming (Pocket Drumming vs Chop Drumming)

Tony Royster has ridiculous chops. Both as evidenced by various Gospel Chops vids and instructional videos where he shows what he learned from Jim Chapin. I've met Thomas Pridgen and watched him...

Re: My humble take on good drummers and OK drummers

Funny thing is, while I love his playing I tend to think of Gergo Borlai as a "chops" guy in contrast to someone like a Steve Jordan or Jim Keltner. Interesting that the OP picked him as an example...

Re: Want to go to Berklee for Music Ed degree - unrealistic?

There's probably a community college with a decent music program where you are. Ask around amongst the studied musicians in your area. Find out if formal music curricula is up your alley. While...

Re: Chops?

"Chops" comes from the old jazz horn players. Their "choppers" or mouths/lips, and what they could do with them. Initially it meant complete skill in playing. Tone production, range (especially...

Re: OH technique - front to back?

You can eq the channels differently. That will simulate some sense of spread. Put cuts in different places, try to avoid boosts so things don't jump up in volume when they hit that boosted...

Re: Snares vs cymbals

So Jon, how many different kinds of sticks do you have/use? I find that sticks make a sizable difference in cymbal sound, particularly the ride. So with one ride, I can use 3 or 4 different sticks...

Re: A guitarist question on a drum forum

A lot of it comes down to preamp or power amp distortion. Power amp distortion is typically preferred but it's a one volume level thing unless you have some sort of speaker attenuator. Depending on...
