Re: The side snare

I used to set my Mapex 3x13 Brass snare off to the left of the hi hat when I was playing in a faster paced band with some odd drum and bass parts here and there.

I don't really have a need for a...

Re: Do You Like Metal Snares?

My friend had a 5" deep version of the brass free floater. Great drum with a pretty wide tuning range.

Re: Do You Like Metal Snares?

I've probably played a metal shell snare 90% of my time behind the kit. Nothing against maples, birches, or acrylics. They just dont ever seem to give me the exact attack I want to hear.

Used a...

Left hand triplet fluidity

I realize there's probably a thousand threads here about "developing left hand speed" or something to that effect. I'm looking for advice on something more specific though.

Re: Unpopular Drumming Opinion Thread

- I still like the sound of a piccolo snare after the year 2002.

- I feel that the proliferation of the "gravity blast" technique has, for the most part been worse for creativity in...

Re: Thoughts on fill placement

I'd say I agree with that. Might be great if the whole band starts working the song together with the specific idea for something unorthodox being the central framework or theme.

"This song will...

Re: Crescent cymbals... AKA Screw all you meaningless peons?

I see absolutely nothing wrong with how Crescent handled that back and forth on Facebook. Yeah maybe the responses could have been interpreted as "gruff" but he stayed on a straight, factual path...

Re: Toms Mounted on Cymbal Stands

I havent noticed it happening the other way around but I'm sure it could happen if I were tuned higher and more open. What did you tweak to get it to stop?

Re: Toms Mounted on Cymbal Stands

I have a 19 Crash on a boom and an 18 Chinese/stack mounted with my 12 and 14 mounted toms respectively.

The stands are just early 2000s Tama Roadpros. Nothing fancy or overly heavy duty. As long...

Re: IMPERIAL CYMBALS RIPPED US OFF!!!

My guess is:

amount of money involved < cost of lawyer and filing international business lawsuit


Imperial followed me on twitter a little while ago and I was immediately struck by how little...

Re: Can you convert a snare into a timbale? If so, how?

I used to do this with the 7x14 steel shell snare that originally came with my 90's Pearl Export kit.

Pulled off the strainer and bottom hoop. Threw a clear G2 up top and cranked the tension to...

Re: Question about cymbal height.

I remember him explaining that joining Battles made him rethink how he used the parts on his kit. He felt that his use of cymbals should be simplified and that a crash should be something almost...

Re: Question about cymbal height.

I wasn't quite sure what John was going for when I first saw him with that 7 foot cymbal, but his explanation is pretty rooted in musical practicality.

Re: Question about cymbal height.

Just below eye level. To the point where I can read the printing on the opposite side of the cymbal.

My ride is a lot higher though. The part where the bow begins it's curve to the edge is at eye...

Re: Stolen Drums, a long, frustrating story

I feel for ya man.

I'd say don't underestimate the reach that using Facebook and Twitter has within the local musician community. I've seen at least 4 or 5 examples in the last year where...

Re: hihat patterns

The hi-hat/bass drum poly in Lateralus is a good exercise methinks

bass drum comes in at 5:37

Re: Under Rated/Under Stated Drummers

I see his name come up as an inspiration when other great drummers are interviewed. Other than that, he does seem to go largely unnoticed. A shame.

Re: Under Rated/Under Stated Drummers

Maybe listing because I was just listening to him, but John Wright from NoMeansNo is certainly a unique breed of drummer.

Good luck with your audition. You and I took a similar break. Glad to see someone else is rediscovering their calling.

Re: Drumming Barefoot or in Socks?

I have an old friend that only played in those as well. I always wanted to buy a set of ninja shoes and wear them while I played a show with him.

I wouldn't doubt that some people's "flat everything" setups happened with their first kit purchase because they saw someone else setting up that way....such as Travis Barker.

Re: Was Lars' double-bass on the track Dyers Eve a fraud?

That's a well discussed and documented instance of the band hiding Jasons parts because he played "too much like a guitarist"

Re: Flattening toms?

I don't think flat toms are as much a fashion in themselves as they are a practical result of the tendencies for both "virgin" bass drums and for toms to be shallower than 20 years ago. It also seems...

Re: Drummers who've inspired your playing

I have to ask, why?

It's kind of odd to read that. Like "I'm embarrassed to admit Bill Bruford was a major influence on my playing"
