Re: What computer should I get?

Definitely go Mac. I've been a Mac user exclusively since 1995. If you don't plan on moving your new laptop around at all, you can get by with a MacBook Air. If you plan on taking it with you...

Re: Been documenting my snare drums more.

Agreed. Great way to compare the snares. Very nice job on the audio side of things.

Re: Zebrano Tour series snare video - the competition prize snare :)

Ditto. I also gravitate most of the time towards lower tunings of drums. This snare kills it on all three tunings, but if you backed me into a corner forcing me to choose a favorite, it would have...

Re: Sound proofing Idea

I think your best bet is to locate a sound deadening brand of sheetrock (like they use in THX movie theaters) and layer your walls with a two sheet thickness all around the room.

Hang or install...

Re: Peart - would you hang out with him?

I've never been taken in by the whole celebrity status thing at all, so I respect anybody's desire for privacy as much as I hope they respect mine. That said I would enjoy hanging with Neil but only...

Re: What's your latest purchase?

Nothing earth shattering--just a standard DW hi-hat clutch for a fixed set of hats on a vintage TAMA remote hi-hat mount.

Re: If you were sitting behind my kit.

Normally I would say cymbals hands down, but I would lean towards getting the snare given its rarity. You already know you want that particular snare. If you don't know what cymbals/sizes you're...

Re: Polishing drums

Clarification on my prior post, I would only use Sprayway on wraps and chrome hardware.

Re: Polishing drums

Back in the day I used a general kitchen cleaner aerosol sold by the Fuller Brush Company. It did a really good job cleaning wraps and chrome hardware. After it went off the market I came across...

Re: Tom Mount Help - '70's Concert Toms

Another option is to purchase used omni-mounts of your choice, take them to a machine shop or local welder and fabricate a slider piece to fit in the stock mounts on the concert tom shells. You can...

Re: For those who play at church or not.

Probably the single biggest issue is perception--some churches only employ a drum shield because church members "perceive" drums are louder when they are in the open than behind a shield. This is...

Re: For those who play at church or not.

I know Curt personally and trust me, he has seen the best and the worst in a wide variety of church acoustics and their worship team members. He isn't singling out drummers necessarily to be the...

Re: Is Don Henley relevant here?

The Eagles Their Greatest Hits 1971-1975 was named best selling album of the century. With the current state of the music business and sales that record may never be broken. I have nothing but...

Re: Many cymbals yes, but many snares?

Over the last 48 years I've only owned one snare drum at any given time. I did collect around 27 cymbals, but that was over a period of 40 years of slowly and strategically assembling four "sets" of...

Re: What's your story about how you started drumming?

When I was seven years old my Mom made me choose between taking piano lessons or tap dancing lessons. Taking tap likely would have led to an early demise in our neighborhood, so I opted for piano...

Re: To sell or keep my old Stage Customs: A dilemma

I agree . . . it's time to let them go. But definitely get another back up kit that you're excited about.

Re: 14x4?

If I could only have two snare drums of different sizes it would be a 4 X 14" and a 6.5 X 14". No question about it.

My favorite two 4 X 14" snares: Legend Phosphor Bronze (own it) and a Joyful...

Re: Looking for a single mic to record covers at home

I pretty much use a variety of Audio-Technica mic's on my kit. The AT-2020 and AT-2035 would be good options in your price range.

If you can hunt down a used Oktava MK-012 condenser, you might be...
