Re: Billy Cobham: My Concept is My Own

What an amazing kit! Such a change to see one without all the glittery chrome. I want one!

Is he left handed or does he just like his drums the other way round?

Re: Shooting for a 50's sounding snare! Any advice?

Now you mention it, didn't a lot of them use felt damping strips under the head?

Re: Who "invented" the rock beat?

I'll take a gamble and say it was whoever backed Elvis.
If you look at the type of music then being played it was all jazz, blues and swing. Some of those numbers are 8 to the bar anyway and so it...

Re: stick in the eye anyone? not for the meek!

I took a chip out of one of my teeth while doing a triplet roll round the kit. The stick just flew out of my hand and went straight at the teeth.

Re: Where can I get a snare weight?

These are for women.
They are so that women can buy their men a small useful present for the drum kit. Men being the nice chaps they are receive it gratefully and use it in order to please her.

Re: Where to go after playing on cruise ships?

I would say build for the future while still having a ball.

Re: How do you characterize the sound of steel?

I have an Ian Paiste snare and two things impress me about it. One is it is very heavy, it's a thick walled very solid drum.
The other thing is that it is amazingly versatile in the tuning. With a...

Re: The Drum Solo

In this country the Big Solo is a signal for everyone to head for the bar or outside for a smoke.

Re: Leaving my drums in a humid place, what can I do?

I would put them in polythene bags along with some dessicant packs. So long as the bags are sealed it will all be fine.

Re: Help For An Old Rock Drummer

I have one of those. It works very well and lets you change the configuration of the kit at a moments notice.

Re: Any tips for 'useful fidgeting'?

I'm a chronic foot tapper. If there is no music to tap to I make my own.

Re: Where do you place your drums in your room?

Makes a big difference if you have a room full of people. In a small bar or pub you can get a wall to wall audience on the same level as you. It just sucks up the sound and makes it completely...

Re: Yamaha 9000 versus Maple Absolute.

Re: Cleaning Hardware

Just warm water and detergent will shift that. No need to use corrosive worktop cleaners. Rinse well with a wet sponge.
