Re: So Frustrating trying to pick a new kit

There are DRUMS! No matter how much you like the looks or drool over features, you still have to like the SOUND.

I vote for "Go play them in person before you get stuck buying lemons".

Re: Gregg Bisonette Clinic

I saw Gregg in the early 2000s here in Indianapolis in a practice hall. But he played as though he was in an arena.

GREAT player. Gregg is such a musical guy.

And his passion is evident too....

Re: Do You Drum While Not Drumming?

My co-workers often hate me.

Esp. odd time songs where I know the time signature.

I love Joe Satriani's "Flavor Crystal #7" and count the beat out loud almost every time I crank it.

I also...

Re: R.I.P. Pat Torpey

Very sad news.

What a great drummer. He did a masterful job in Foxboro, MA five years ago.

Thank you for your work, Mr. Torpey.

Requiescat in pace.

Are there Drumless Carter Beauford / DMB tracks to be had?

Just wondering, has there ever been such a thing commercially-available?

I would love to get some. I find it hard to believe certain drum-istic drummers haven't run with the idea.

I know I'd...

Re: Snare drum tuning tips

Colour my brain boggled right there. I always thought the snare was the hardest.

Re: Question regarding 'leftism'

I'm left-handed with writing and using a fork. But righty with everything else.

It is FAR more natural for me to lead with my left hand in drumming. I can just feel it when I play. The body...

Re: What's your latest purchase?

That amp looks almost just like my PV Delta Blues. It's basically a Classic with a 1x15 speaker instead of a 4x10 or 2x12. I love the clean channel a bunch.

I have way too much gear. I have a...

Re: DW Drums from a Non-DW Player's Perspective

I am not a DW player (except for some hardware).

Most DW drums I've hit in person are too resonant for my liking. I like a more staccato note from all of my drums, which is why I love my vintage...

Re: Ever had the cops called on you for drumming?

Yeah, at least once when I lived with my parents. People are jerks.

Sometimes I am surprised when I play my guitar late that no one ever calls the cops. But I suspect my neighbors are illegal...

Re: Dammit.....I LIKE The Internal Muffler

A few of my Tama snares have the internal mufflers. They're a neat little variation.

They don't detract from anything; they're like a tone knob on your snare. With some drums / heads...

Re: Dweezil's C&D tour and drummer Ryan Brown review

I do not remember who was on the drumkit the last time I saw ZPZ live but it wasn't Joe Travers and he was sorely missed. Not at all as solid or grooving.

Re: How NOT to package a cymbal for shipping!!

I received a set of hats nested in one another, and 2 squares of cardboard taped around them. ZERO protection for the edges. I ripped the jerk on EvilBay feedback, which I almost never do.

Re: Virgil Donati's use of Metric Modulation over a simple Rock song

I'm wholly with the "If you don't like the thread, walk on by" folks on this one.

This entire forum seems to be hurting for activity and we're adding negativity for kicks? LAME.

My first drumset was a set of black Swingstars with the weird grey spackle finish on the inner side of the shell. ("Zola"? What does that mean?)

Re: Anika Nilles

Sie ist eine WunderFrau! :D

She sounds pretty dang loose (as in not stiff) in her groove considering the tracks she plays to. Dang impressive.

I'd like to see her playing live with others...
