Re: Pearl Reference Pure drum porn ;)

Looking good Bo and cool to hear about the tuning and sound.

Please have a go at "The Drum Also Waltzes" for me. ;-)

Re: A Singing Drummer's Mic Set-up

Re: A Singing Drummer's Mic Set-up

Nope, no offense or rudeness interpreted at all brother. Just wanted to share how I remedied my own problem with unwanted noises coming through the mic, that's all.

And to be clear, singing...

Re: A Singing Drummer's Mic Set-up

In regards to appearance, the Elvis mic is definitely my favorite for drummers. Even though it obscures your face more, it seems to provide more of a focal point that's interesting to look at. And in...

Re: A Singing Drummer's Mic Set-up

As I mentioned, I have a microphone muting footswitch (with an LED on/off indicator) so I can turn the mic on and off pretty easily on the fly. Otherwise, the audience would be hearing all kinds of...

Re: A Singing Drummer's Mic Set-up

I sing both lead and backing vocals and I've got a Shure SM35-XLR that I've been using quite a bit. I run it through a footswitch next to my hi hat so I can turn it on and off at will.

As Larry...

Re: Better after time off?

Similar experience here as well Jeff. As a cyclist, I liken it to the "taper" before a race where you gradually cut down on volume, frequency and/or intensity of training to optimize your event...

Re: Simon Phillips talks 'bout open handed, dynamics, big sound and recording :)

Thanks, very good stuff. In addition to his stellar playing, I'm always struck by how personable and "comfortable" a person he seems to be.

What I can't begin to figure out is why Andy hasn't yet...

Re: Considering a Yamaha Oak Custom set - Tell me everything you know...

Beautiful drums! Congratulations.

My Live Custom oak bass drum is 14 x 22 and I'm currently using a single-ply Aquarian smooth white batter (with a beater patch) and a resonant side Fiberskyn....

Re: Yamaha Live Custom Oak - opinions?

Ah, that's the word: "Clean." Thanks Andy.

I find that these drums have worked really well for the "back beat" gigs I do (e.g., rock, pop, blues) and depending on the venue, deliver well sans...

Re: Jeez, Phil...

So, suddenly the qualifications for landing an AC/DC tribute band gig have changed tremendously.

Re: I think I'm losing it

Not sure if this helps Bo but as an avid cyclist, I definitely notice that it's much, much easier for me to sing well when my aerobic conditioning is in peak form. And, I've noticed this is more...

Re: Yamaha Live Custom Oak - opinions?

Hi Art,

I've been gigging a Live Custom kit pretty regularly since last spring and I like it a lot. To my ears, these deliver the attack, projection and "meatiness" of oak without being too harsh....

Re: Steve Jordan .... yeah ... watch it !

Cat didn't even think about the enormity of his gigs until he got to Letterman. That's some laid back chillness right there.

If I could have just 1% of SJ's groove, I reckon I'd be pretty...

Re: Singing and playing?

As a youngster, I had teachers who would have me sing melodies while playing time over independence exercises (e.g., Alan Dawson's adaptations to Syncopation). Singing vocal parts came pretty easy...

Re: Yamaha Drums

Ah, nothing says classic Yamaha like cherry wood! Be sure to post up some post-op pics of the toms Neal. In the meantime, perhaps you can use them for an 80s tribute type of gig? ;-)

Re: Yamaha Drums

Drums look fantastic Wes. Also dig how you've mounted toms and cymbals on minimal stands but still kept it looking clean.

Re: Yamaha Drums

Great drums WB! And regarding explaining to your wife: Just let her know the formula for how many kits a person should have is: a + 1 (where a = # of kits you currently own). ;-)

In recent months I've taken to mic'ing my kit (6 pieces) with two overheads, a bass drum mic and a not-close snare mic (Glyn Johns style) and I absolutely love it. For lack of better words, it sounds...

Re: Report from the dark side ;)

A very thoughtful and useful thread (as usual) from you Andy. I actually just played a festival gig and was wondering about what such an event might require from an engineer. I listened to bands...
