Mic'n: Rock/Pop vs Jazz

Will you mic a kit for jazz differently than a kit for rock/pop?

I'm asking because in rock/pop, the kick and snare dominate. Not so in jazz.

Re: Do you record yourself daily when practicing?

Question to you all:

Recording and listening back to the audios is straightforward and I do this from time to time.

But, how do you streamline the viewing of the videos to check your posture...

Re: Jack, killing it @ 70

That HH sounded piercing in my headphones. Hurting me ears.

Re: Recording drums and music through a zoom q3hd using Roland TD-6V

You misread the labels on your module. In the very first photo you posted, ignore the top row of text. Read the 2nd row: "phone" and "mix in". (The "MIDI IN" and "MIDI OUT/THRU" are referring the 2...

Re: Cymbal mutes... that don't sound disgusting?

Google "Sabian Sound Shaper" or "Cympad".

Re: Problem with an off-beat groove

Hi Brian,

Sorry that I didn't explain it clearly.

I don't have problem to play syncopated kicks or place the kicks on the off-beats. I can play this perfect to a metronome. My problem is with...

Re: Problem with an off-beat groove

Thanks Larry.

I meant the guitar groove is off-beat. That makes it hard for me to feel where the downbeats are...

Problem with an off-beat groove

I've been practicing this Trinity College grade 3 exam piece for months. But there is this off-beat groove that I couldn't get the drums to lock in. Here is a vid I found on youtube:

Opinions needed on recording technique/equipment in my garage (with audio files)

Hi all,

I'm green in home recording. I used to just use a Zoom Q3HD to record my own practice. I've recently acquired a pair of AKG P170 mics (as part of their Groove Pack). I'm trying out a mic...

Re: Yamaha Stage Custom $899 vs Shell pack $650

Slightly off topic.

I don't understand why Stage Custom comes with single-braced hardware while GigMaker double-braced hardware. At least in Australia.

Re: Playing soft. Loss of energy?

This is the best observation/advice for me in 2013! I need to frame this up on the wall.

Re: Hi-Hat Stepping (Lift & Close on every beat)

It took me years to be comfortable to play constant HH quarter notes with the foot.

It just takes practice, and practice really slow. e.g. 40 bpm

Add one limb at a time.

Re: Intros and fills....argh!!!!

You are not alone. I reckon it's a left-brain/right-brain thing.

When I'm sitting in front of a kit and wanting to come up with some phrases, my mind usually goes blank. But if I'm just listening...

Re: Snare: Replacing Yamaha Birch SC Snare with Yamaha Maple Custom Absolute Snare?

I spent my entire Saturday tweaking the kit. (Suffice to say, that drove my wife nuts.)

I now can get a half-decent sound from the snare by itself. Now I know the batter head needs to tune high on...

Re: Snare: Replacing Yamaha Birch SC Snare with Yamaha Maple Custom Absolute Snare?

Thanks guys.

My buying impulse was (temporarily) tamed by The Missus. I (wisely?) told my wife I was thinking of replacing the snare. I told her since I was buying this blind without hearing how...

Re: Snare: Replacing Yamaha Birch SC Snare with Yamaha Maple Custom Absolute Snare?

@wildbill: Yeah, I went through many many rounds of tuning and I understand if any of the lugs on SC snare is not in tune, it is absolutely terrible. I didn't know drums were so...

Re: Snare: Replacing Yamaha Birch SC Snare with Yamaha Maple Custom Absolute Snare?

Uncle Larry,

I like the Stage Custom toms (with coated G2 heads). They sound lively. It's just the snare giving grief. I think the reso head is already very tight. I will give it another try.
