Re: Let down by a drummer with chops but no ability

i've seen other musicians do the same. Great at rudiments and chops, lousy when with the rest of the band. I had a steady gig in a club just outside a military installation, and one day an officer...

Re: How to get better snare sound ?

Maybe you should take your headphones off more often when you play drums.

Re: Stock snares

The stock snare on my 1975 Pearl Thunderking was a #4514 14x5.5 10-lug steel snare. Its the only snare I've ever owned, and has been both on the road and in the studio. I've played everything on it...

Re: New Pearl Wood Fiberglass

That setup looks like my beat-up 70s Thunderking kit, except mine has an 8-lug kick and the steel snare. I wish I could restain/refinish my kit in that color.

Re: Is it OK to talk about the movie "Whiplash" yet?

AS A MOVIEGOER: Its not weird enough to be black comedy, and not intriguing or insightful enough to be taken seriously and/or make me suspend my disbelief. The characters are so one-dimensional that...

Re: How do you count while olaying drums?

Once I've determined the tempo of the pulses, my reckoning of rhythmic patterns can be based on either the time signature, melodic/lyric cadence, or chord changes, or a combination of these. For...

Re: Vistalite Bass Drum tuning

But that's the whole point of Vistalites. They are loud drums with tons of overtones.

Re: Bonham amber vistalite purchase/questions

It should sound hollow ever with the PS3, like a marching band bass drum. Felt/cloth strips will make it more Bonham-like. But try the hollow setup for a few days. You might get to like it if you...

Re: If you were sitting behind my kit.

17s, 18s, 19s, 20s, they're all good. When the 2013 A's came out, I found 18" and 20" thins, and a 17" medium thin that I REALLY liked. I ended up with the 18" because I already had A 20" crash-ride...

Re: For those who play at church or not.

Some years ago the pastor of our church asked me about a shield because people were complaining about the "loudness" of the drums. I told him that the 1) the drums were not set up and tuned properly...

Re: Kick sound horrible!

I'm assuming you are using other mics and a mixer, right? Can we hear the whole mix?

That kick sound is not "horrible" per se. There are situations where that will actually work. Its probably...

Re: suggestions for best rods and brushes

I'm still using my Regal Tip classics. I remember it was the one I liked most when I bought it many years ago.

P.S. Whatever you get, don't forget coated heads on your snare.

Re: Looking for help choosing a pro level drum kit

Here's another route. Splurge on a killer, keeper snare first. A Benny Greb is under CDN$1000. 14x5 Black Beauty goes for under CDN$700. A Sensitone Brass is under CDN$500. Then get a killer pedal. A...

Re: Pearl Crystal Beat Drums

I also noticed the new Spotlight series. It seems to replace both the Forum and Target. The small 4-piece (10, 14, 18kick, 13 snare) looks like an interesting option for a low cost small kit. All it...
