Re: Wood stain on a Fiberskyn !

Very beautiful! I'm impressed. I think I'm going to try this with my solid-shell ironwood set.

Re: Are drums ever too quiet?

I couldn't agree more! I have never, ever heard anyone ask a drummer to play louder. Yet many are obsessed with being louder. The industry caters to this, selling equipment that will "create...

Re: Stopping bass drum creeping forwards

Many times, there is no carpet, just a hard floor. It would be pretty douche to force the spurs into someone's wood floor.

I use a 2 by 3 foot olefin mat under the seat in these cases (the kinds...

Re: Stopping bass drum creeping forwards

I don't mind manufacturers stopping in occasionally to tell us what they're up to. Manufacturers made everything I touch. I need them. They need me.

As long as they aren't spammy or obnoxious,...

Re: Gear Envy

Yes, I used to have gear envy, until I got a set that everyone else envies. I have nothing left to envy. Well, maybe some better cymbals.

Re: Apparently wood isnt important in drums

Sound is the final product - it comes last, only after everything else has been done first. Only after design, raw material selection, processing, shaping, sizing and finishing, do you get sound....

Re: Apparently wood isnt important in drums

You hit the nail on the head. Most drums, in fact, aren't made of "wood" anymore. They are made of a wood composite consisting of processed wood, glue, heat and pressure. The processing, chemicals...

Re: practicing without sticks...

I frequently practice coordination and independence whereever I am - driving, sitting, walking, anywhere. This just trains basic muscle memory and integrating technique with sticks, etc., is a whole...

Re: Top five jazz albums for drummers?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but all of these records come from a 20-year period. The preceding 30 years of jazz and the following 50 years are kind of left out.

Re: Most ideal 20" kick drum depth - help!

I tend to favor deeper bass drums, for more body and chomp. If you could get 20 by 20, that would be great.

Re: transcribing drum part

Great playing. It must really help for you to be able to read and write so well.

Re: Looking at your foot

Yes, I think it is mainly that I can pay attention to exactly how far the beater is from the drum. Due to leverage, a small change in the footboard can mean a couple of inches in the beater position.

Looking at your foot

I was practicing today and I was having some trouble doing 16ths in some tricky places with my bass drum. In frustration, I stared at my right foot and tried executing the patterns and it was...

Re: Can mods read PM's?

I sure hope they can! Personalities and drama erupts on a board occasionally and mods need to be able to do that.

Re: Country drummers!

Very true. Country has evolved a great deal - perhaps it has strayed from its roots. But some of the evolution is cool, like Hick Hop.

Re: Ringo's Drumming: Harder Than It Looks

Like .... who ...? Aside from me, I mean. I find his drumming simplistic, underdeveloped and dull as hell. Drummers love him because he is a surrogate for our insecurities about our instrument, since...

Re: Unpopular Drumming Opinion Thread

How on Earth could I have missed this thread?

The Beatles suck.

The Duallist is a great invention.

Square sizes rule.

The hihat and left foot are crucial.

Re: Little Jazz Drumset

I play an 18 inch bass drum with no lift. I just shorten the shaft. Really, if you're going to play a smaller drum, you need to scale down the beater as well. A long shaft produces more energy and is...

Re: Is one genre of music really harder to play than another

Complexity is not subjective; some genres, songs and musics really are harder than others, either rhythmically, melodically or both. East Indian percussion is the most difficult on the planet, taking...
