Re: Top 5 Metal Snares

Ayotte Keplinger 14/6.5, if you want cut and depth this is the one, so aggressive. There is a an absence of the horrible clang of brass.

Pearl Ultracast 14/6.5, a metal drum that doesn't clang,...

Re: Unpopular Drumming Opinion Thread

My number one unpopular drumming opinion is that Ludwig 400 and 402 are good snare drums, I have played many (on shared kits) and even owned a 400 for a while. But, alas all this has merely confirmed...

Re: Pearl Masters Bass drums - dark green colour?

There are huge differences between a pearl export and a maple pearl masters bass drum. But these differences become less pronounced as you move to thicker or pre-damped heads or stuff with pillows/...

Re: Other musicians' view of drums.

Depends on the type of band, I have plays in bands that relied on me generating all the drum parts first and then they fitted everything to these. I have also played in situations where I had to fit...

What goes in must come out

I should have said I also keep my GAS in check by laying off the post sound check-pre gig chilli, chicken pathia. My AKG 112 can cope with the the low end rumble, but the FOH mix is a mess.

Re: Favorite Floor Tom

Many moons ago I played a bright yellow premier resonator that had a 15 FT, it was just fantastic and really made a lot of sense melodically since I like a 13 rack tom tuned up a tad. The jump from...

Re: Any Suggestions for Ear Plug Filter Strength?

I have played in some loud bands, heavy bass, feed back guitars, and cutting synth sounds and have always found the 15 filters just fine, no ringing and no ear fatigue even after 2 hr show....

Re: Is it unethical to buy drums made in China?

The corollary of this is, is it ethical to buy drums made in North America. I dislike the small minded mildly xenophobic tone of this thread.

Re: Just a G.A.S. observation

One of the best ways to avoid GAS but still change your set-up in line with changing times is to swap gear. Adopt a gear in for gear out policy. This way you don't build huge arsenals of unused...

Re: Drumming footwear, Wellington had it right

No. You are all wrong, best drumming foot ware by far are Wellington boots, it really improves my playing of Bryn yr aur stomp. Also most useful at rainy festival gigs. Sneakers and driving shoes...

Re: Snares vs cymbals

It's nice to have choice but not essential. I own and use 7 snares and 18 cymbals spread over bosphorus, paiste and zildjian. To some this excessive but I have played in a variety of bands and have...

Re: Changing snare tuning for different songs.

Twin snares is my standard set-up, basically four piece with extra snare, the only problem I have encountered is that in a multi-band live setting sound engineers don't often have a second snare...

Re: Top end brass snare drum

No, I really don't like brass snare drums, all those overtones clanging around. I know I am in the minority but I would take a solid shell aluminium drum over a brass ringer any day.

Re: Letting others borrow equipment

Sharing back line is a reality for many bands particularly those playing small venues where there is limited back stage space for kit changes. Plus sound guys generally can't be bothered. I have...

Re: Basic drum maintenance?

This depends on where and how much you are gigging as well as whether or not your gear is being used as back line for the support acts. Fact is that most venues are in the cold light of day rather...

Re: How often do you break/drop your sticks?

I break sticks, particularly 5As, mine tend to wear on the shoulder about 1/2 inch back from the tip, this doesn't go suddenly but rather gets thinner and the feel of the stick goes on cymbals. So...

Re: How much is it worth? Premier Genista

In the UK these go pretty cheap. I played a really nice Damask finish Genista for 10 hard gigging years. The toms were indeed 6mm but very undersized so the head really floats on top. These are /were...
