Re: Professional responsibility

I'll be honest.
I don't really ever watch "Drum Videos" on You Tube.
I know few of the online teachers and "You Tube Stars".
That kind of stuff doesn't appeal to me.

That being said, I keep...

Came with my new Yamaha Kit. I don't use it all the time, but mostly due to the fact that I change snares depending on the gigs. This...

Re: Why aren't Recording Customs popular today?

I have a set of 25 year old RC's. I play them practically every day and use them on just about 100% of my recording sessions. They are my prized possession and I'll be buried in those drums!

Re: Session work gear must haves?

I've gotten in the habit of collecting gear that can be used universally, specifically for session work. 99% of the time I use my 1988/89 Recording Custom. I start with a basic 4pc setup, and add...

Re: Yamaha's Chinese Factory Quality

Re: Using a Metronome/Click on stage

I use a click live 100% of the time.

If it's a gig with no tracks I feed a signal in from a Yamaha DTX Drum Module to an 8 channel mixer. The whole system is hard wired together in a road case.

Re: Playing With Backing Tracks Live

I've done it many ways.
Most of the time I get a click on one channel and a mix of the live band on another.

Re: Daniel Liljekvist leaves Katatonia to "get a normal job that gets the bills payed"

Re: Is it bad to have little or no individuality?
