Re: What's your latest purchase?

Pair of Regal Tip Ed Thigpen Signature Plastic Brushes.

So great for practicing at home. My wife can barely hear me playing.

Re: Drumset vs marching bass drum

Marching basses work great for drumsets. The only this is they are not drilled for spurs so you will have to install your own, get a mat, or use a bass drum anchor to prevent it from sliding around.

Re: Most Difficult Song

I always find it very difficult to play anything by The Who according to the recorded drum part. You just have to completely let yourself go and forget about the idea of just keeping a solid beat....

Re: Question about Snare Beds, are they necessary?

I also just remembered about snare fans that are used on old-school cocktail drums. How much sensitivity would one of those provide on a 10" drum?

Re: Question about Snare Beds, are they necessary?

Right, but drums like Rogers Dynasonic had active snare systems that eliminated the need for snare beds. So I either need to find a 10" version of one of those or create my own.

Re: Trad Advice

Why hasn't anyone mentioned why most jazzers prefer trad grip? While playing ghost notes Trad grip allows you to elevate your arm up very high so only the very top of the stick makes contact with the...

Re: tuning a 14 x 14 floor tom

I really found the opposite of what I used to think was a vintage tuning style worked. I cranked up my batter head a couple turns above its lowest point, and tuned the reso. head at its lowest tuning...

Re: Most portable drumset

You could try to get a good cocktail drumkit. You play them standing up and all the peices attach to a standing bass drum. There's also the "gig-box." I forget what it's called and can't find the...
