Re: Do you gig vintage gear?

If you have it and it sounds amazing use it. There are collectors and then there are players; I would rather play than collect.

Re: How rare is it to find a band that has a practice space with a kit for you to use? Advice needed

Yeah, pretty rare situation to have a practice kit there. I agree lugging drums around is part of it and I think a lot of reason the 1 up, 1 down thing is still so popular. But, and I know people...

Re: THE CLASSIFIEDS - For Sale / Wanted

I have some Yamaha Absolute Maple Nouvea toms that I have been thinking of letting go. They were part of a larger kit which I sold and kept the two toms for gigging. I was just going to list them...

Re: The Minimal Setup

I have always gotten along with 2 crashes, a ride and a set of hi-hats.

If someone has a ton of cymbals and plays them all every gig, great. But personally, I would get overwhelmed with choices...

Re: 2 up 1 down vs 1 up 2 down

1 up, 1 down.

I have a bunch of toms so I am constantly switching around for screwing around at home but I gig pretty much exclusively with 1 up and 1 down. Just seems to be perfect for me and...

Re: Rivet Buzz

Or you could always take it out and replace it with a threaded one:

Re: Rivet Buzz

I am sure someone more knowledgeable than me will post on here but here is what I would try if I had a loose rivet:

Take a bolt small enough to go through the hole with two washers slightly bigger...

Re: Mom and Pop vs the big box

There used to be a great drum store here where I bought everything, but it is long gone. Now the parent store is pretty much nothing but a glorified teaching studio with a bunch of beginner...

Re: How do you practice this style... ?uestlove

From a totally different vein, but I just started working on the Gavin Harrison Rhythmic Illusions book and it focuses on beat displacement like playing a simple beat and then moving the whole thing...

Re: My first recording experience.

Well, I am by no means a great studio drummer, but yes for basic rock/pop stuff I can roll through a standard song with a click and pretty much nail it. BUT that is only because I had the same...

Re: My first recording experience.

After my first couple of recording experiences I was hooked and I have been recording local bands for about 10 years in my spare time. Being recorded and learning to engineer albums made huge ...

Re: Do you wear the drum brand?

I have never really cared too much either way. I certainly wouldn't take off good heads because they have a logo but when I replace them anything goes. Usually that means plain white or ebony...

Re: Silent Practice

Since I have been spending a ton of time practicing lately whenever I work in a really late night practice time, I use that time to practice playing pretty much as quietly as possible. Normally I...

Re: Bang for your buck. How significant?

I totally agree with this. I could never be a collector of anything; I buy things to use them regardless of their price. I never understood playing a gig 5 nights a week with a decent instrument...

Re: List of things you have to master to be a good drummer

All I have to offer is this:

Practice hitting the drums in the center for the best tone. It sounds crazy simple but I wish someone had told me that when I was starting out. I still see tons of...

Re: Bang for your buck. How significant?

Personally, I have played some really nice high dollar kits that sounded awful and some really low dollar kits that sounded amazing and of course vice versa.

If you are determined to do it, you...

Re: Yamaha 9000 versus Maple Absolute.

Re: The aging musician

Well, you can't let fear stop you. Even if its there in the back of your mind you just have to move on. I saw Max Roach give a clinic at U of L and then do a show that night. At the clinic I...

Re: DW Performance Shell packs w/o Bass Drums??

You are totally correct. Honestly I have played a four piece kit for 20 years. Maybe I am in mid life crisis mode but I bought this kit as a four piece and then just kept adding toms to try...

Re: DW Performance Shell packs w/o Bass Drums??

Good point, I actually wound up with enough drums to have two kits; a fusion type kit and a four piece kit using my ludwig bass drum but it requires me moving my 12 tom back and forth which isn't a...

My JR Robinson 14" Yamaha nail snare. Its the birch one with the copper pins driven into the bearing edge on the bottom. Amazingly sensitive but with a really nice crack to it and since it is wood...

Re: DW Performance Shell packs w/o Bass Drums??

Well, there are full kits you can buy with the bass drum or you can get a tom pack with or without snare and pick which size bass drum you want, 20, 22 or 24.

I just recently bought a set of...

Re: The aging musician

If you love it, you just have to do it in whatever respect you can and keep doing it. I'm 42 (as of Feb) and I just took up double bass this year. I have been working on some George Kolias / Derek...

Re: Gretsch Catalina Club Jazz Owners

Thanks! I listened to an exhaustive list of cymbals from Bosphorus, Istanbul and Zildjian (no decent drum shops around me any more unfortunately). I was really hoping to settle on some Bosphorus...
