Re: Tempo problems!

Re: How long does your snare cord last?

Thanks for all the responses.
I have new cord on the Acro now and one gig with it so far.
If the cord breaks again, I'll look for a burr on the rim or the snares.

All my previous snares used the...

How long does your snare cord last?

I wanted to ask this in the Acrolite thread, but I thought it deserved a new thread(no pun intended)
just curious, I had the snare cord on my new-to-me Acrolite break at a gig,the local drum shop...

Re: Straying out of my comfort zone

I sat in with a friends band once where the drums were electronic.
It was my first time other than messing around a bit at GC.
I thought the pads felt a bit weird, but I just played the songs the...

Re: New to me Acrolite

Little bump in the road with my new love affair. Second gig in the snare cord broke.
I have no experience with snare cord- had to break out my back up- which luckily is a 13x6 maple Gretsch which I...

Re: Talking salespeople down in price

I work as a salesperson for a distributor. We have a lot of competition, and we sell a lot of national brands that the other companies have as well.
I deal with price issues every day. I'm usually...

Re: Snare for a $200 budget

I recently picked up a used Ludwig Acrolite with new heads and snares for $129 at my local drum shop.
Sounds great and cuts through the classic rock band I play with nicely.

Re: NDD - Acrolite

Congrats!
I picked up my first Acrolite a few weeks ago and we did a gig last Sat night.
I let some cat sit in (friend of the owner) and he played pretty well. I was able to go out in the crowd and...

Re: New to me Acrolite

Thanks for the info- so my Acrolite is probably 1980-82 or so.
I was just curious, I had asked my local drum shop to look out for any Acrolite that was not powdercoated. The info I read online said...

Re: New to me Acrolite

Here are some pics of my new to me Acrolite.

I tuned it a bit higher yesterday ( about a full turn on the snare side and half a turn on the batter side), and I like it even better.
It sounds...

New to me Acrolite

I finally found a Ludwig Acrolite at a decent price. Contrary to rumours, I have not been able to find anything on Ebay that was around $100.
I bid on a few, but came up short. Per advice gleaned...

Re: need help counting

Update-
I went to rehearsal last night, and the other guys had no idea how to count the stops...sigh....

I went over the 4-6-4-4 count and after we went through it a few times it smoothed out...

Re: need help counting

Bart- I counted it 4-6-4-4 until I had the feel and switched to 4-4-4-4 with one of the stops coming on the 2 of the third bar.
Larry was right- I had to play it through a few times and listen to it...

Re: need help counting

Thanks all- What threw me was the third stop is on the 2 beat which is a bit odd.
I started counting 6 beats in the 2nd measure (thanks Doug) and after a few go-rounds I got the feel and went back...

Re: need help counting

Thanks Doug- I will try it tonight. I have a couple of weeks to get it down for the event.

So would this be a case of the time signature changing from 4/4 to something else and back again?- I'm...

Pat Travers - boom-boom-out go the lights..
My band is doing a private party and the host requested this song.
This is one reason (among many), that I dislike private party gigs.
Anyway- I am...

Re: Ludvwig epic kits?

You probably already know that the Epic kits are made in China. That would cause many to classify them as non-professional off the bat.

I have an Element Birch set that Ludwig considers one step...

Re: Peter Criss

I also grew up wanting to play like Peter Criss. There are way more "technically proficient" drummers out there, but his work on Alive! was full of feeling- just great rock drumming with a bit of...

Re: Do you ever stand back from your drums...

I always stand back and look at my kit after setting up for a gig, or even setting up at my house.
if you look back and love what you see, you are a lucky individual for sure.

Re: How do you feel the day after a gig?

I usually feel tired due to lack of sleep... most weeknights I am asleep by 10-10:30pm.
Gig nights I get home at 1:30-2:30am and then I can't sleep because I am all wound up after playing and...

Re: Ludwig's new Signet 105 drum line!

I saw one of the blue sets at GC. I am tempted by a USA Ludwig maple kit at that price, but I really don't dig the finish.
That probably means I am shallow, but if I don't like what I see when I...

Re: Drummers around 5'6" - What size drums do you have?

I am 5'5" and use a 22" bass drum with 10" and 12" rack and 16" floor.
I have the ride on a straight stand set up to cover 25% of the floor tom. I bring the floor and ride in close, so if I am...

Re: Ludwig's new Signet 105 drum line!

Another reason why Ludwig should just stay out of Guitar Center.
I wonder why they chose to place the new Signet line in GC in the first place. Pretty obvious that outside of a black beauty snare...

Re: once again.....

Just my 2 cents....

Some places we play want the band to be quieter for the first set. I can adjust both my playing and use lighter sticks. I have even used The "hot Rods" bundle of dowels type...
