Re: Damage control: take care of your stuff

I never keep the felts or wig nuts on my top of my cymbals.

Re: Well this is humbling: Hit Like A Girl, Bonham edition

Ok, there's one for the totally cynical approach.



8 years-old? Pretty damned amazing if you ask me! I wish I could play the bass drum half as good as she does.

Re: Worst Badge in the Business

Hey, don't go giving hints on what my next thread is about. Let it happen without any interference.


And get a Paiste ride... any Paiste ride.

Worst Badge in the Business

Random question of the day:

"Who has the worst badge (or logo) in the drum business?"

My vote: Mapex. God-awful ugly design.

What are your thoughts?

Re: Drinking beer at a gig

I might have a beer maybe an hour before a gig, but it's mainly water. I don't even like to eat or drink anything that's sugary before I play.

Re: The hidden life of the drummer :(

It's not a conspiracy, nobody really cares about us except other drummers who DO want to watch us play - and they can't because everyone else ignorantly stands right in front of us. We might as well...

Re: Cool drum facts you've heard late

So what did Ringo do in the Studio for all those years. Besides learn to play chess?

Ok, 22 year Science teacher here. Tony has all the right techniques to try to bring out the best in a defiant student.

Re: Will DW be the next Gibson (financial woes) in the future?

Black Oyster Pearl is one of Ludwig's most classic and popular wraps. I am certainly not sick of it.

For more on this, just ask Bo.

Re: Ludwig Supraphonic - 5" or 6.5" depth?

I have both the LM400 & the LM402. Guess which one gets played the most?

If you guessed the 402 (6.5 inch), then you guessed right.

Now, would I ever give up the 400? Not a chance!

I...

Re: The future of the drumset think tank

How about tightening all heads (Batter & Reso) to a certain "X" factor with each drum having a suspended mini-microphone built in. You could then adjust the tone, resonance, etc. of each drum...

Re: Band drama

In a former band I played in, the other guys did just that (without my knowledge) and it was decidedly so that their timing sucked.

They kept blaming me for the slow downs or speed ups, but all I...

Re: Your full name on your bass drum head

If I were Mitch Mitchell, you bet!

But I'm not, so I probably wouldn't.

I have thought about using my avatar on my Gretsch kit, though.

Re: $50 yard sale score

You had me totally terrified when I read the title to this thread.

My wife is having a yard sale today and I thought that maybe she sold my drums. Scary moment!!

Re: MB's Random Question Thread

I don't think Ive ever seen a 26 x 18, but yeah, it would be a boom monster.

Most all bass drums used to be shallower, typically around 14 to 16 inches. I believe (but maybe I'm wrong) that the...

Re: How many have matching snare finish & brand with rest of kit?

Have a matching snare, it came with the kit. It's a fairly cheap 6 x 14 Gretsch Catalina Maple snare drum. When I first got my kit I had one hell of a time learning how to tune that drum, but now...

Re: MB's Random Question Thread

"Open up" means the cymbal's sound blossoms more quickly. The thicker the cymbal (or heavier) the more energy it take to get the sound out of the cymbal.

To me however, thinner cymbals lack a...
