Re: Any big name drummers do something to rub you the wrong way?

I certainly won't say that Scott Phillips from Creed or Alter Bridge is a bad drummer but I can not stand that fact that in every song he hits that "and of 4" on the open hi hat with the left hand....

Re: The gigging scene in your area

We only use an agent about 30-40% of the time. Some of these high end clubs will not even talk to a band directly. However, getting into some of these agency booked clubs opens to door to a bunch of...

Re: The gigging scene in your area

Re: Looking for input on In Ear Monitors

Thanks to both of you. I actually found a system that allows ambient sound to be picked up and mixed into your in ear mix at the level you want it.

Re: Looking for input on In Ear Monitors

Thanks a lot for the input. This helps a lot. So the biggest draw back is the isolation from band members possibly trying to say something to you in between songs.

I assume this also can be a...

Re: Kick Drum Trigger LIVE

So after thinking through it, it would be way to much hastle to have the sound guy mute my kick mic whenever i need to use the trigger sound only. So I believe my setup will include a pad for snare...

Re: Set up/Breakdown

I actually enjoy the set up process. I love getting to a gig an hour before the rest of my band, grabbing a beer and taking my time to make sure everything is how i want it.

Re: Yoga and Pilates for Drummers!

I highly agree. I know it sort of sounds corny but I bought the Wii Fit for my girlfriend and hopped on it one day and tried the yoga and strength exercises. These two things on this simple "game"...

Re: Piccolo Snares, I'm not digging them

But i agree...

Re: Tama Superstar SL Custom Hyper-Drive
