Re: Steve Maxwell's Rules!

8Mile,

I live in the west Chicago suburbs, very close to the Maxwell shop here. I've had intentions to go to it several times but life kept getting in the way. Anyway, I did talk to a sales rep...

Re: Can I keep my toms low on a 22" kick?

I have a PDP M5. 22" kick with a 10, 12 and 14. I'm about 6 foot. I've tried and tried and can't find a comfortable position for my 12" above the kick (not to mention, for some reason it doesn't...

Re: 68 Supraphonic???

Pretty much what Defender said. I picked one up used a few months ago. I stripped it apart, soaked the rods in coke overnight to get rid of some pretty heavy grime and even a little rust. The...

Re: Unpopular Drumming Opinion Thread

I have enough problems with my single strokes being smooth using matched grip. Traditional grip only adds another factor to hurt my evenness. I admire those who use traditional grip well though.

Re: Poll: do you double bass?

#2. I just can't come to terms with taking my foot off the hi-hat pedal.

Re: There's no way David would be this shameless, but I will ;)

Thanks for sharing this. I spent some time after the chitlins went to bed last night watching these videos. Sometimes I need reminding the best sounding fills/licks/grooves are often "simple...

Re: Unpopular Drumming Opinion Thread

I like cymbal logos and lettering!!!.......phewww, there I said it. I've even redrawn the Zildjian logo on my old new beats. it doesn't look half bad either. And yes, I know logos don't make them...

Re: Need forum wisdom (fusion "standards")

I would think Weckl needs to be in that list.

Re: What people will pay

I've been casually seeking a 16" for my PDP M5 kit. They are horribly and disproportionately overpriced.

Re: Drummer Metronome

I second the app solution. There's really no need to buy a metronome these days. So many free apps and programs you get get to do that for you.

Re: Carter Beauford

It's probably because 80% of his drumming career has been with one band. Just not as much exposure as some guys like Porcaro, Weckl, Garibaldi and Gadd. In my opinion, Carter is just as good, if...

Re: PDP Concept Maple vs. DW Design Series

I will admit, I've never laid a stick on a dw kit outside of a drum store but I own a PDP M5 ( similar to the x7) and I think it sounds great.

Re: Ludwig Snare (not supraphonic, not an Acrolite)?

Thanks Steve. Ya, the "snare chord" on there is my janky attempt at replacing an even jankier snare chord (yellow string on one side and wire on the other) that was on it when I got it. The white...

Re: The matching snare

A snare is like a lens on a professional camera. It's something you want to be able to switch out depending on the situation. It doesn't have to match the toms and bass.

Re: What's your latest purchase?

Very nice. I was on the look out for one of those myself when I stumbled across this on craigslist for VERY cheap.

Re: The matching snare

When I got my PDP M5 kit it came without the snare. For a while I was searching around for the matching snare to complete the kit. After a while I came to the realization that it's not that...

Re: Ludwig Snare (not supraphonic, not an Acrolite)?

Ah, that's why it looks different. Cool.

I may try tuning my reso down a bit and see if I still like the sound.

@Kamak, you're probably right. My other snare is a 13" so right now I don't...

Re: Ludwig Snare (not supraphonic, not an Acrolite)?

The collar is pretty close to the bearing edge. The last pic shows what I'm talking about best. Your hoop looks different than mine. Is it original with your supra?

Re: Ludwig Snare (not supraphonic, not an Acrolite)?

Here's a pic of my reso side. May be hard to tell from these pics but see how the rim is almost flush with the reso head? I wasn't straining to get it this tight. Does it look like I've cranked it...
