Re: Distorted Floor Tom Sound When Recording

It's not the mics fault. More expensive mics don't handle higher SPL any better than cheap mics. How is it mounted? Is it on a stand or just clamped to the rim? It could very well be the drum...

Re: What drum company is best for me?

If you don't know already, learn what makes each drum sound different. Things like sizes, wood type, number of plies etc. Then as people said go out and try some kits. If you really want to put...

Re: Distorted Floor Tom Sound When Recording

I don't hear any distortion. That's just the natural sound your shells make. Maybe tune your drum up a bit and see if that gives you more of the sound you want. How are you at mixing? That doesn't...

Re: Drumming quietly to hear the singer

Thanks for the replies everyone. I'm going to attempt to give this thread some closure. As mentioned I don't think I play loud necessarily, I've been playing for 8 years and would like to think...

Re: Distorted Floor Tom Sound When Recording

Well it has to be something. Double check all your gear first. What type of mic are you using and how are you mounting it? The mic can get overloaded and distort even if it doesn't show that it is...

Re: Distorted Floor Tom Sound When Recording

Definitely a gear problem, not a drum problem. Even if your drums sound awful it wouldn't distort the sound. My first guess might be clipping, but I would assume you would check your levels before...

Re: Yet another recording question!!

I'll try to put this as simply as possible. Your mics need their signal to be amplified in order to be recorded. This means a preamp, either one in a mixing board or an audio interface. Usually if...

Re: Yet another recording question!!

I would suggest getting an interface, either USB or firewire. Does that thing let you record to separate tracks? The interface will give you inputs as well as preamps. I have this one and I like...

Re: Drumming quietly to hear the singer

Maybe some of you can clarify about the needing to hear everyone point. Like I said we play in a very live room, as in wood floors in a vacant house. I'm not trying to smash my drums as hard as I...

Drumming quietly to hear the singer

I'll preface this by saying this stemmed from an argument I got into on a different message board. Basically it got brought up that my band has trouble hearing our singer during band practices. I...

Re: Drum riser in a recording environment?

I would advice against putting them on a riser. That to me just sounds like another thing that can rattle or shake and end up on the recording. No matter how well it's built it's gonna vibrate. As...

Re: Tips for faster setup/teardown times

Thanks for all the replies guys. I really like what someone said about getting a rug and having everything marked, I'm not super picky about having everything positioned exactly like I have my kit...

Re: Famous drummers you have met

I took some lessons with Al Pahanish, the drummer from Powerman 5000. I also hung out with Adema when my band opened for them. I think the biggest thing I learned in general is that these guys are...

Re: Getting warmed up/psyched for a gig - wot do you do?

I really don't do any sort of warm up before playing, other than simple stretching. The time between sound check and playing I usually just hang around with the rest of my band. We'll maybe get...

Re: Tips for faster setup/teardown times

Ya I do have them in cases as well. I know that's not a bad speed at all, but it's those little things like screwing on cymbals that seem to take a lot of time. It just seems like it takes forever...

Tips for faster setup/teardown times

I wanted to see if you all had some tips or advice on getting your kit set up faster when playing a gig. Obviously downsizing your kit would be the best way to reduce time, but that isn't an option...

Re: how to minimize my hardware?

Definitely get a second bag. Not only is it lighter and easier to carry, but it's also easier to organize your stands when you are ready to unpack. Someone mentioned it, but clamps, arms, stackers....

Re: I need advice for (politely) demanding more money.

This sounds like more of a band problem than a you problem. You don't want to say I want to make more money. You need to say WE need to make more money. If you tell all the guys that you think...

Re: Drum Skill somehow Decreased..Need Advice

Re: Is it Possoble to Rank the Drum Manufacturers' Prestige?

I think you are misusing the word prestige, or at least not using the way you want it to mean. It sounds like you are wanting a list of brands with a good history? Then yes brands like Ludwig and...

I actually agree with Larry. If you don't know what you want at this time, there is no benefit to rushing out and spending the money. Ask for a gift card instead. Maybe a few weeks later you find...
