Re: Best drums under $1500?

Maybe, but they charge a lot for them!

Re: Best drums under $1500?

You can order a single 18" Tom, but the price of that single drum will be very high. Might be better to order the 15" later. You could also ask Green Briar to order a 15" to go with this:...

Re: Best drums under $1500?

I agree with buying used if you can find what you like. My son had only one requirement when I asked what kind of drums he wanted: Black. It turns out a nice black drum set is hard to find used,...

Re: My physical issues and my drumming

Have you ever heard of a chiropractor telling someone their spine looked normal?
That line was designed to get him to spend money, so better to ignore it when deciding what to do.

Re: Bid like a man!

Nothing wrong with that approach. However, you will win less auctions than you would entering that same bid with 6 seconds left. Other bidders will have time to think, test your max, and enter a...

Re: Bid like a man!

If the auction ends with a sale, only eBay and the winner know what the maximum bid the winner would have been willing to pay was. However, I bid on a tractor once that didn't meet the reserve price,...

Re: Bitter Ginger Baker slating Zeppelin and Bonham - again

Clapton vs Paige
Baker vs Bonham

Seriously?

Most guitarists can play the beginning of Stairway to Heaven or early Clapton stuff. Many could play it with better technique than Page or Clapton...

Re: Bid like a man!

Complaining about ebay because there are some imperfections is pretty lame. It's still a fantastic place to shop if saving a dollar or two is a big deal to you, or if the most you're willing to pay...

Re: Impact Isolating Riser - My New Design - Plans and Guide

I agree this looks like a great design. In our next house (2 months away), I am putting a music room/recording area in a sealed attic which is partially over the master bedroom. Because of the...

Re: Impact Isolating Riser - My New Design - Plans and Guide

Just curious. How often do you have to pump up the inner tubes. I was considering something similar but with tennis balls or some sort of foam.

Re: Open-handed with traditional grip

Yes, an 1 an 2 an Three and 4 with a hard snare on the 3. Not sure the the other snare hits are. Not triplets, right?

Re: Open-handed with traditional grip

Try not to laugh, but he doesn't know what a half time shuffle is, and I'm not sure I do. When he counts a measure off for me he counts it: a one an two an three an four, with a definite shuffle or...

Re: Open-handed with traditional grip

Hi Todd,
I'd be surprised if it is boredom. I noticed he switched once when he dropped the left stick practicing. His right took over on the hat when he picked itup and he finished the piece...

Re: Open-handed with traditional grip

Even though they are apparently a pretty good middle school jazz band, they're still just 7th and 8th graders. I'm sure the band leader doesn't give them anything too difficult. For percussion, the...

Re: Open-handed with traditional grip

Thanks for the responses.

Brent,
Your suggestion is sort of what we did. When lessons re-started, I asked his teacher because at that time nobody had said traditional wouldn't work well, but his...

Re: Open-handed with traditional grip

No worries, I'm always in support of taking lessons, and I'm aware of how the majority of people play. About 89+% of them are right handed, around 10% are lefty, and 1% are like my son. Vojtech was a...

Re: Open-handed with traditional grip

Even though Vojtech did say he's a lefty, thats a little arrogant sounding. He's lefty, and plays a "right handed setup". For 1/2 or maybe 1 percent of the population, what you are describing,...

Re: Is it OK to talk about the movie "Whiplash" yet?

Where did that come from? We're not drawing any musical education from it. Do you get your medical education from House? Is your martial arts education from the Karate Kid? Hey, maybe you got your...

Re: Is it OK to talk about the movie "Whiplash" yet?

Sorry, but no. Your link to a medical drama was not comparable to Whiplash. The TV show House might have been comparably realistic, or ER, or Gray's anatomy. Or any of a good number of great...

Re: Is it OK to talk about the movie "Whiplash" yet?

I loved this movie. It was a drama, not a movie about drumming.

J K Simmons father was the director of a university music program and Simmons has a degree in music. In addition to that, he's...

Turn snare throw to off.
Turn drum over.
Thread ribbons/cords/wires through the two clamps.
