Re: Help with jazz

thanks, and I don't mean to say that instructional materials aren't important, and useful. I'm just saying unless you have an unlimited budjet, go get some jazz to listen to first, build a decent...

Buy jazz CDs and listen before you go buy any instructional material.

Re: what size for jazz snare drum?

Which brings us to suggestion # something

Get the Kumu shellpack (bass and toms) get on ebay and get an interesting used snare.

There's often things like 6 Lug 60s Ludwigs, 60s and 70s...

Re: what size for jazz snare drum?

They (additional lugs) also put more weight on the shell, as well as more parts/joints through which vibration can be dissipated. The vintage kits (not vintage at the time) on which the classic...

Re: 10 or 12 inch rack tom for jazz?

The "standard" would be an 8x12 and a 14x14 (on legs), that's actually more "standardized" than bass drum or snare drum size.

You see 14x18, 16x18, 14x20 bass in bop drummers sets all the time...

Re: what size for jazz snare drum?

the vast majority of well known jazz drummers play/played a 14, very few play anything shallower than a 5. other than that it varies greatly from player to player.

Roy Haynes almost always played...

Re: Full stave kit progress

It's a great compliment to the quality of your work as a woodworker, but I will say that alot of people that want stave drums - also want people to be able to "see" that it's a stave drum, both...

Re: Full stave kit progress

I think the wood looks great, with the right stain, and right finish, all those irregularities, are just gonna come out as a really complex deep look.

And I've seen your other stuff, so "right...

Re: Sonor?

I think Sonor prices are tied directly to the Euro

that is, the kit is set for the model year at X Euro, so in the States when the dollar value vs. the Euro changes, the stores may have to change...

Re: Anyone, Anyone?

I don't.

Because it means that at that point those drums are being valued as collectors items for collecting's sake instead of valued as musical instruments. The people out there paying huge sums...

Re: Full stave kit maple shell

Would that just be shells?

Or would that include hardware (and mounts for floor tom legs etc, rack tom in a snare stand is fine, but I want my next floor to be a real one)

I'm asking mostly out...

Re: 20 x 12 kick drum?

The shallower drum should be inherently tighter and punchier anyway. You might just try an Emperor or G2 head, with no dampening. With a single ply on the front, tuned up a little tighter than the...

Re: Praise Your Local Drum Shop

And I will gladly add to that praise. Great to have these guys open in town: solid selection of gear, and great folks to boot! I've already bought a splash and a bunch of sticks there.

Check out the versions by Solomon Burke (the original of this song I believe) and Wilson Pickett (who specifically credits Solomon Burke in his version) both feature slightly different takes. ...

Re: muscle development

Inspite of being perhaps the most vocal advocate in favor of serious strength training for people in every walk of life (including drummers) I do have to admit the following:

Re: muscle development

Above, I asked you a very simple and specific question:


"Can you provide a reasoned scientific explanation with a basis in human physiology for that position?"


Can you?

Re: muscle development

A little more.

10lbs is kind of arbitrary isn't it?
Life in general requires us to pick up a lot of things heavier than 10lbs:
A bag of dogfood
A bag of Mulch
An easy chair
A son or daughter...

Re: music theory: a necessity for drummers

On some level, in order to play music well, you have to "get" theory, even if you don't really "know" it in a formal sense. The thing is, if you are someone who has the ability to "get it" to feel...

Re: Joseph "Zigaboo" Modeliste

top line=sticking/footing
2nd line=sound being played
3rd line = 16th note count

Re: Joseph "Zigaboo" Modeliste

Linear groove generally refers to a 16th note beat in which all notes are played in a "linear" fashion that is, entirely one note to the next, never two at the same time.
