Re: Silly branding things that shouldn't matter (but do!)

Clearly designed by a certain Mr. West ;)

Re: Silly branding things that shouldn't matter (but do!)

Not really (trying desperately not to mention oversize badges on drums ;)

I'm much more peeved by aggressive marketing of stupid things purporting to affect playability / sound that are actually...

Re: Can't decide on a rack tom size for a jazz kit

They do sound nice, but fairly heavyweight EQ - especially weighty on the floor tom & bass drum given the context.

Re: Advice on setting up 'Bonzo Bash' style event in UK

I didn't see this thread until now.

if your primary motivation is to garner exposure for your band, that's almost certainly the wrong approach to organising a successful event. The focus has to...

Re: Drumming in the pre digital age.

That's why you'll very rarely see me in the technique section - I vet myself ;)

Re: Making $ playing drums

Hemp drums will sound like crap, but sound improves massively after the shavings are disposed of ;)

Gig earnings in our local scene are fairly poor for most players, & at total joke level for...

Re: Who inspires you the most?

Indeed Jeff, Simon is my first call inspiration, even though I'm not a "drummer follower" kind of guy.

over the last year or so, I think I've been influenced by George Cook more than anyone. He...

Crap rehearsal = great gig?

Well, that's the saying, but is it true? Is it merely coincidental?

Earlier this week, the band suffered the worst rehearsal I can remember. Various members arriving with "life baggage",...

Re: Bad gig, good learning experience.

So yet again Larry, you find yourself compensating for something that requires no compensation ;) ;) ;)

Re: anyone own or tried the DW concrete snare?

Larry, you're a very naughty boy.

I'll leave you with this - just because you can, doesn't mean you should :)

Re: Singers and percussion

Madge - I'll say this once, & once only: Unless said gobist has proven live percussion ability - never EVER allow them to take a percussive roll in a performance. Egg shakers are potentially bad...

Re: Bad gig, good learning experience.

Larry, as near bottom feeder drummers, we live in mud sometimes. Sure, everything's fine when you're playing in an environment where there's a room balance, but in my world at least, that's the...

Re: Brady snare update

Yes, it was an international delivery.

I hope you understand my reasoning here, but I'm going to decline to answer your specific question, as it very much depends on the nature of the claim at...

Re: Brady snare update

This has happened to us once, & it was incredibly frustrating, as well as hideously expensive to fix. The fault was not the kit build, it was shipping damage, that unfortunately did not manifest...

Re: You and your practice regimen, come clean

Pretty much 100% of my "practising" is actually rehearsal with other musicians. Very occasionally, I'll have to try something new & take a little time to nail it down. Upshot is, I don't practice,...

Re: Brady snare update

Absolutely! If we had to replace a kit, we'd have to sell at least another 5 kits to make up for the loss, & that's before we even consider shipping & stuff. Even if there were no other...

Re: Brady snare update

This is key to understanding how big a deal a warranty claim can be for a small company. Because of the way the higher quality smaller companies craft their instruments, a faulty piece is far less...

Re: Effects of snare depth on tuning?

The super thick multiple ply shell will have a bigger tuning affect than almost any change in depth. You can tune almost any drum to any pitch, but it's where it's effective that dictates it's...

Re: Fess Up Which one of you is responsible for this?

I vote for the drummer concerned to be awarded some kind of public service medal. Damn fine stage etiquette too if you ask me!

Your approach to supporting a solo.

Not your own, someone else's. For me, there's two distinctly different options. Either;

a/ Provide a solid & open foundation for the soloist to play over / around, or

b/ Use accents & other...

Re: Guru snare competition results!

Sorry, I couldn't resist ;) Now who was it that made triangular drums?

Very tasty indeed!
