Re: mounting Roland SPD SX on kick drum

The simplest way to position the pad where you want it, and not modify the kick, is to use a sturdy boom cymbal stand with this clamp & plate:

Re: Drum rehearsal rooms in LA

Just northeast of Hollywood is Bedrock - www.bedrock.la - they have a bunch of rooms, some (all?) with drums and cymbals. They even have a little store with sticks, strings, cables etc. Nice big...

Re: Jon "Bermuda" Schwartz here!

In a nutshell, I met Al on the Dr. Demento radio show here in L.A.. He was already a regular 'cast member' with a number of popular songs, and I was being interviewed because some recordings my...

Re: No Respect

TV coverage of any player usually depends on how camera-friendly they are. If a player looks bored, they probably won't get much screen time (unless they also happen to be singing lead.) Also...

Re: No Respect

That perception may have something to do with the lack of a melodic factor, but I find that most people are quite amazed by the ability to use 4 limbs at once, which I find quite natural. Truly, it's...

Re: No Respect

I don't think it's just about drummers, jabs and jibes are made about singers, bass players, guitar players, and the proverbial trombone player with a beeper. I certainly don't take any of it...

Re: Difficult band members

Despite what I said earlier, there may be a point where being around certain people just eats you up. When that begins to rival the joy of making music, then it's time to part ways.

Re: Difficult band members

I wouldn't worry so much about the differences, unless someone is being way out of line. As long as you enjoy making music with them, just stick it out. And if you have to have a different dynamic...

Re: How are drums recorded for a song?

The process and technique varies widely, assuming the drums are cut live at all (you'd be surprised how many bands with a drummer program some/all of the drums for their albums.)

Often, it's a...

Re: Ludwig Copper Phonic

I had a brass FF, which I toured and recorded with over 20 years ago, and it was a great drum. That said, does a raw shell clamped in a frame that weights more than it does, still possess any of the...

Re: Drummers As Leaders

The article is probably empowering for some drummers, but none of it is new information (as exhibited by the list of classic drummers) nor is it a particular revelation. The statements easily apply...

Re: Ludwig Copper Phonic

Hmmm, you're right. I'll talk to Ludwig and suggest they raise the price of the 6.5"

Re: Notching out the character

It's nobody's goal to make drums sound generic, worse, or whatever. And musicians that view an engineer's input as some sort of personal affront, are just not seeing the big picture.

First, it...

Re: Reso head or open bottom???

It's always about the miking. It doesn't much matter what the drums sound like to your ear from behind the kit, or in front of it. What matters is what the mic hears when it's 2" from the head, or...

Re: Miking demo. What do you think?

Sounds great as a kit on its own (toms are a little thin IMO.)

But once you start to mix the track, you'll be making balance and EQ changes you haven't anticipated. It will be more revealing to...

Re: Roland SPD-SX / multi uses?

Simply plug the pedal into one of the trigger inputs and assign the song to that, which leaves the nine pads to play other samples.

Re: You won't believe what Andy did

This is quite a coincidence... a cross-dressing buddy of mine (on another drum forum) was talking about this lovely English bloke he met on a plane, someone named Andrew.

Heh, small world.

Re: Ludwig Legacy Mahogany?

Undoubtedly they'll be less expensive, and if original, will also come with brass hoops! :)

But... keep in mind the potential issues of a kit that's around 55 years old, such as, how are the...

Re: My personal list of rock and roll's top cowbell moments

I can forgive you for overlooking The Beatles "Everybody's Got Something To Hide" with cowbell 16ths running through most of the song, but how could you forget BJ Wilson on Procol Harum's "Power...

I think we met right here on Drummerworld, and being able to see some videos certainly helped cement the deal! I believe I also met Tom Coyne through this forum. Between the two of you, I always know...

Thanks Bo!

Once again, Bo Eder will be subbing for me with the Zero G Band while I traipse around the world with Weird Al. Here we are at a refresher rehearsal, with Bo sounding great as usual!

Thanks again,...

Re: The Trap Set podcast... with me!

Thanks, and believe me, it did start as a much longer interview. Joe skillfully (and mercifully) edited it into a much more digestible half hour! :)

Re: Ludwig Legacy Mahogany?

I played the kit at NAMM, and they've faithfully recaptured the classic '50/60s sound. I've got a '59 transition kit - basically, the originals - otherwise I'd definitely get the new ones!
