Re: Who has inspired the most to make people play drums?

They don't call him ringo-worm for nothing.

Re: Is this crazy?

I have to adjust. =(

Mine sound great in bigger or dead rooms, and not so great in reflecty rooms. I have to tune out or muffle the overtones because they get to be too much in some rooms. ...

And a flippant response from Watso.

Re: Creative/minimalist kick drum muffling ideas?

Can you show a picture? I'm not able to visualize the elastic setup. I use a towel too.

Someone bought be one of those Evans bass drum pillows, and it has an interesting design that includes...

Re: Creative/minimalist kick drum muffling ideas?

Yep, if memory serves, that BD head has a ring and a extra layer of material muffling around the outer edge. Maybe more open than some heads, but don't fool yourself into thinking you're not...

Re: The Choice to Play the Drumset

Wait, wait, wait, we were supposed to have a choice? Dang! I could have gotten all the ladies if I'd gone guitar or singer!

Re: Creative/minimalist kick drum muffling ideas?

Realize that when most people say "with the right heads" they mean pre-muffled heads. Something with multiple plys, or rings, or dots, or heavy plies or actual muffling rings or "systems" for...

Re: An Open Apology

Yea, you do a good job keeping things clean around here.

Aussies are used to getting corralled up for any crimes that go down, so I'm sure he's fine with it.

Re: Creative/minimalist kick drum muffling ideas?

I just roll up a towel and put it against the head. Keep it in the car and I always have it if the room is too echo-ey or something. Few times I forgot and my hoodie or sweater worked just fine,...

Re: Is it a myth that certain drumming legends have an inimitable 'feel' on the kit?

Took me a while to get the subtext of this line. For a long time I was trying to get my Fifty-Five to sound like I heard other people do it. Maybe a natural starting place, but I realize now I sort...

Re: Could This Be Our Friend Bo?

It's insurance. They don't want the big hits to be missed or done too lightly as that affects the music too much. Since the suit makes it easier to miss notes and or not get the right dynamics. ...

Re: Could This Be Our Friend Bo?

Yea, I wasn't watching all that close the first time. On second review, it looks like maybe they're both in the mix, and the backup drummers job is to time the important hits with the mouse, and it...

Re: Could This Be Our Friend Bo?

That might be the "real" drummer. I imagine it's pretty difficult to actually play in that huge suit without really being able to see much. I bet he's either the backup that they can switch the...

He did post video of him playing in a parade as Mr Mouse. That doesn't look like his style though.

Re: Is it a myth that certain drumming legends have an inimitable 'feel' on the kit?

It really depends on how long you'd studied a particular player so you could really pick out all the idiosyncrasies of their playing. At this point in his life, I actually wonder if Tony might be...

Re: Is it a myth that certain drumming legends have an inimitable 'feel' on the kit?

Yea, you see that a lot. People who covet the specific feel and skills of one player. For a while in the 90's you could throw a stone and hit a guitar player that tried to sound like Tool's Adam. ...

Not to mention, both were really recorded before things like aligning to grid, sample replacement, and really heavy editing were common.

Their voices were less silenced in favor of "perfection",...

Yea, but as far as I know, there aren't any bass drum mics that have arms or "game".

Re: Bass drum mic picking up Toms

I know this is a troll thread, because bass drum mics don't have arms, and there isn't possibly enough guys named tom to pick up in any one room.

Re: Moaning' Jazz ride

Hey Art, there was some pretty tasty swinging in there! I'm seeing real differences from some of the older vids. Some stuff to improve still, but you're aware of that.

Don't get discouraged. ...

Re: Should I buy this HipGig Kit?

Pass on this. It's just stuff, and you don't need it, and it's too much to buy just because someone you knew used it.

Re: Counting off the song w/banter

I can't really get on board with talking during solo parts... Maybe this guy is a problem after all! I've done the quiet vamp while people talk thing before, but talking over someone's solo?

Re: Counting off the song w/banter

I tried to say that it's pretty obvious when it doesn't work, but if the audience is digging it and the guy is good at it, don't let yourself get so hungup that you can't play your part simply...
