Re: Hey,Ludwig Guys....

I noticed that, too. The pics show triple-flanged hoops.

Re: Can't seem to play fast

You've already analyzed your problems - hitting too hard, German grip, no finger control, etc.

You say you've been doing it this way too long to change, yet you've only been playing a year. I've...

Re: The power of smiling

I usually can't help but smile when I'm playing. I also dance in my throne, often times. Whenever I'm happy I'm a very kinetic person anyway. Gotsta move!

Re: Is live music dead?

Yeah, I don't think the smoking ban is to blame. I live in Idaho, where it is still legal to smoke in bars. There are bars that choose to be smoke free, and interestingly enough, they tend to have...

Re: Hi-Hats: Tight or loose????

It looks like that Gibraltar clutch Les referred to might be a good solution, not to mention being quicker to use. I may end up with one for that reason alone.

Re: Hi-Hats: Tight or loose????

Interesting. The bottom nut on the hi-hat stands I've used have an internal flange (basically, they aren't threaded all the way through) and the flange tightens against the bottom of the clutch...

Re: Advice please?

Be familiar with the material, be friendly, and don't worry about any fancy fills. As others have said, for a cover band, do what is on the record to the best of your ability. Concentrate on feel...

Re: Hi-Hats: Tight or loose????

The bottom nut should be tight and shouldn't come unscrewed. The tightness of the clutch against the cymbal should be controlled by the nut on top, which is normally two nuts that tighten against one...

Re: Snare Drum Tuning: The Neil Peart Sound

I think, to get the sound he's getting, you'll want to run the reso higher than the batter. That little bit of twang or ring you hear is normally a result of that. Both heads tuned the same usually...

Re: Snare Drum Tuning: The Neil Peart Sound

No real magic, I don't believe. The batter sounds as if it is tuned to a B, perhaps, and the reso is probably higher than that.

Crank it tight, is the best I can suggest, especially the reso. The...

Re: I thought this was strange....

Yeah, it's interesting, all right. You may never know. If they never do it again, will it be because those first heads weren't good, or because something changed or settled in the drums themselves?...

Re: I thought this was strange....

I would guess it is the head settling in, conforming to the bearing edge. Probably more of a head consistency issue than a drum issue?

Re: I'm back. Did you miss me?

Nice! It's good to hear you're back in the saddle! I'm sure you'll have the rust shaken off in no time.

Re: No rudiments taught in marching band?

We had to be able to play the 26 Rudiments in junior high school, if you wanted a passing grade in band.

It's hard to believe they didn't teach them at your school.

Re: Pork Pie Snares?

I like my Big Black Pork Pie snare. It's a great drum at a good price. I've also had Bill Dettamore recut some bearing edges for me, and he does fine work.

Re: mutiple foot strokes while 8th notes on hihat

A lot of the issue is balance and core strength, I believe. WhoIsTony once described being balanced on your throne such that you could run in place with your feet off the ground. Then your feet are...

Re: Different kit formats.

I've played kits at open jams on which the toms were adjusted such that they were virtually unplayable, to me. I just ignore them and get creative with the snare, hat, and BD in those cases....

Re: So how's this for bitter?

I use a D6 as well, but if I were buying today I'd get a D112. Less contoured resonse, but still a little bump for attack. It gives a great signal with which to work.

Re: Buck County Drums

One of the local drummers here has two of their kits. I don't like the finishes he has (racing stripes and powder-coated metal), nor do I especially like the way he tunes, but they seem well made...

Re: OCD or normal jacking around?

I love the different usages of the language. In the states, mad almost always refers to angry, whereas "weird"... yeah. That covers a lot of ground I find familiar.
