Re: Lars Ulrich

I actually set up my chinas like Lars while on tour last week. One over the kick in place of a Ride, and one up over my Floor Toms. The gig I'm currently on doesn't require me to use a ride....

Re: Removing a logo from bass drum head?

I use nail polish to remove logos. It has to have acetone in it though, or it won't work.

Re: What killed off Slingerland?

My first kit was a Slingerland. Not sure what era, as I got it used. According to this website, it's late 70's early 80's?

Re: Anyone ever switch your "brand loyalty?" (Mid-life crisis for me?)

I've switched a couple time. Sometimes it was a political move, and other times it was a genuine "fell for another woman" situation.

I grew up playing and only using Zildjian cymbals. For a few...

Re: How important is knowing the songs?

Re: Advice on kickstarting a drumming career

Being a "Pro" starts with attitude and actions. You have to ALWAYS be 110% prepared. Show up early (not "on time"), and stick your ego in your back pocket. Take any gig, anytime, anywhere, for any...

Re: If you had a drum tech, would it change your set-up?

Same! I only use what I need for the gig. Sometimes thats a 4pc kit, sometimes thats 6. I always have 2 snares, and on tour I bring two kick pedals. My cymbal setup is only what I use for that...

Re: 4-up, 2-down question

The only way to know is to try it out.

I actually own a bunch of the rack clamps from one of his kits. Not exactly sure if it's from this kit or another one.

Re: Is the drummer population aging?

Are you speaking specifically on this forum, or forums like it?

Re: Has anyone started playing out after turning 50 years old?

Re: Why would one need an Endorsement Deal?

This isn't surprising at all. Companies keep an eye on their artists, and I've had a few occasions when a photo had surfaced with me using another brand. My companies picked up the phone or sent an...

Re: Taking charge of your posters

Re: Why would one need an Endorsement Deal?

If the product in question is attached to some unwanted negative press or exposure, or an artist has a bad reputation.

Bill Cosby was a big Zildjian guy for many many years, I don't think they...

Re: Why would one need an Endorsement Deal?

Re: Working at a music store

I worked in a few music stores when I was younger. Both mom & pop shops, and the big chain location. I'll say this, the mom & pop stores are 1000x better. I really HATE the chains stores and working...

Re: The hidden life of the drummer :(
