Re: You get what you pay for

I disagree with this (if only because you used an extreme example). I own a $100 snare and a $1,000 snare. The $1k snare sounds infinitely better because it can do things the $100 snare simply...

Re: A new model for record labels?

Look at what Beyonce did with her surprise album release recently. Exclusive to iTunes for a week and she also bought every slot in the rotating banner on the iTunes home page, which is usually...

Re: A new model for record labels?

I think this was proven viable this year when Macklemore & Ryan Lewis won 4 Grammy's. They never signed to any label (their "label" is Macklemore LLC), independently produced and recorded their...

Re: Chili Peppers should have stayed home.

The only better halftime show I can remember is Prince singing Purple Rain in the rain. Really impressed with Bruno. I always knew he was a great musician but I didn't expect that kind of...

Re: Best Buys from NAMM 2014?

The only "wow" I saw was the 3 ply Gretsch prototype. But that's just a prototype, who knows what it sounds like or if it will even come out.

Re: Possibly one of the best videos I've ever seen...

Obviously a very good set, no doubt. "Best" is a reach though. Vinnie, Gadd, and Weckl at the Buddy Rich memorial concert kills this though, IMHO. That will always be the best drum "shed" to me.

Re: Why Do Bands Have Two Drummers?

Was just going to mention Polica. I saw them live and it's obvious why they have two drummers. The live sound is simply incredible, it's like a wall of sound, just overtakes you. I've never heard...

Re: Re-wrapping old Pearl Export

The first one is an early 90's (90-93) Export with birch inner ply. IMHO, these are the best sounding Exports you can get for this reason.

Re: Is being over-educated about gear good, or bad?

There is a wonderful book on this topic called The Paradox of Choice. The basic gist is that more choice is actually much worse for people because the time invested in research to pick the "right"...
