Re: Is it OK to talk about the movie "Whiplash" yet?

Exactly. There are scores of people out there and around us operating on false bravado 24/7 - it's sickening. Even worse, some of the some of these people are parents.

Re: Shoes and Gloves

I used to wear gloves in the 90's, because of the bashing, sweaty hands and the pain.

I realized in the 2000's after seeing the Weckl Natural Evolution DVD, I didn't need gloves, I needed to use...

Re: Mike Mangini

Maybe I did misunderstand it so I'll look for the article in my archives. However, I remember while I was reading it I was thinking he hasn't had much exposure to African or East Asian cultures,...

Re: Mike Mangini

Very true, this guy is amazing at what he does technically.

I read an article on him in DRUM (or MD) where he went on to say people of certain cultures do not understand odd-times. Hmmm,...

Re: 45 degree angled bearing edge? why?

Also, factor in the hoop for how the edge affects the overall sound. Gretsch use die-cast on their renown's and higher lines which make the sound more focused - sort of adding back the attack -...

Re: Great car for a drummer

Nice! Love the xc70 - it was my first choice back when I was car shopping because of the gas mileage and handling but my wife was against it. Great pick on your part and it will last another 10 years...

Re: Great car for a drummer

Volvo XC90 (2000 - 2012), they are gas guzzlers for sure.

Mine fits my 6 pc kit, multitude of stands (10 cymbals worth) in a 36in. hardware bag and 5 passengers comfortably. Plus, I can see...

Re: Gretsch Renown or Tama Starclassic B+B

Re: Neil Peart Borrows Max Roach?

Right there with ya. As much as I admire him, there have been many cringe worthy moments already.

Re: Gretsch Renown or Tama Starclassic B+B

In this case, it was because I found this thread while searching with the interest in comparing a Tama SC B/B that I was "thinking" of buying, to my Gretsch Renown.

Just wanted to see if anyone...

Re: Freddie Gruber: Finding Out How a Drum Student Hears

I gotta go with Tony Williams on this one to some degree:...

Re: What's your take on electronic drum sets?

I've played Simmons, Tama (techstars baby!), Yamaha, and Rolands since 1990. I can tell you the following:
