Re: How often do you practice? For how long?

Wow, for some of you guys, where do you find the time?!?

For me, it's at least once a week at band practice (more jamming or playing our songs than actually practicing drums). And then whenever I...

Re: Acoustic vs. Electronic

I never got the whole A vs. E thing. It's like asking what's better, an acoustic guitar or an electric guitar. The answer is "well, what do you want to do with it?" Similar thing to the difference...

Re: Blog article about basic signal flow

Re: Set-up/Strike testing

Glad to see I am not the only one with a technologicly incomitant band. The bassist is the only other one in the band with evena clue how this stuff works, but seeing as he lives and hour away...

Re: Jam space

I have a kit that has spend 5 years in an environment like that (but worse, since the dryer vents into the garage it is stored in).

Re: If your drums could talk, what would they say?

"Take me out of the closet! Please!" My poor kit has to live in the closet since there is no room to keep it set up. :( I have an e-kit to play though in the mean time.

or from my practice kit...

Re: THE CLASSIFIEDS - For Sale / Wanted

Any chance anyone has the PDP 805 add on 8x10 tom in white on white to match my kit?

I have been kicking myself for not getting one when they were available.

Re: MikeDolbear.com review - Guru Origin drums.

That is about the best kind of review you could ever hope for. It must make you feel like a proud father.

Also, you guys need to make me stop wanting one of these kits. I don't have the tallent or...

Re: Cymbal Tightening

I run mine loose and low. For most of them, if they were any lower or a bit left or right they would hit the shells/hoops. I hate wingnuts but I hardly ever move my kit at this point, so they are on...

Re: What is classified as professional gear?

If it can survive giging reasonably well without just falling appart. That is my definition at least.

Re: Drum Set Care and Humidifiers

Yeah, I would just avoid the extreems and call it a day. That said, my practice kit lives in the guitarist's garage. Unheated, not air conditioned, drafty (the door doesn't seal at all and has gaps...

Re: How come Bass amps usually go on the left of the stage?

My band is a bit backwords, since most of our songs were written before we had a bass player. The guitarist stands off to the left of me (right handed) so we can watch each other. The bassist was in...

Re: Ideas . . . jam band endings

I find a good way to indicate the song is over is to stop playing. :P

Yeah, it sounds like you guys need to have a talk. The guitarist in my band and I learned how to play by jamming together, so...

Re: Micing a non ported bass drum

Any soundman who throws a fit because of the lack of a hole in a bass drum needs to go back to human interaction 101. I do live sound as a hobby and it is plenty easy to mic a bass drum with no port.

Re: 18/20 or 20/22 Bass drums

Re: Removing a sticker?

And I did some digging. It's a 20x18 kick for anyone wondering.

Re: Removing a sticker?

Yep, it has the Griffin on it. Actually, it had a giant version of that logo on the resonant head it came with too. That probably would still be there if the mic hole hadn't been cut using a box...

Removing a sticker?

Sup guys. I have a lovely drum kit, PDP805, white on white in the smaller shell size (I want to say 18x20 kick? 18x22?). Bought them used two years ago at Gutar Center. They are. Worn but in good...
