Re: Tempos - Too Fast?

Don't know about that, but there are several simple tap tempo apps out there, but you actually have to tap them out yourself while listening.

Here's a simple one that works fine when preparing a...

Re: drum tuners

Drum tuning is one of those things that once you get it, you go "OHHHH!"

It's difficult for lots of drummer because it's like trying to tune just the A string on a guitar by strumming all 6 at...

Re: Kick Drum physics experts in the house?

Are there things that can stop a kick shell from resonating other than the hoop clamp on the pedal pulling the kick hoop down?

Re: Tempos - Too Fast?

I like having a click in my in ears to keep things reigned in. One that I can turn off easily if the band starts to run away from me anyway. Adrenaline, substance abuse, a few too many drinks, in one...

Re: drum tuners

If you're not very good at being able to listen through all the random overtones to zero in on the actual rim note, the tune bot will dramatically help you learn how to tune by knowing what to listen...

Re: Kick Drum physics experts in the house?

Didn't realize you were on this forum Derek. The ringing is audible in the room and in the mics. You can't really hear it too much in the overheads, but I've tried a Beta 52, a 421, SM7, and a D6....

Re: Revolutionary cymbal choking technique ;)

Haha, that's exactly what we do for drummers in the studio choking a larger cymbal. Some of them you almost have to throw a blanket over them to get them to not ring over the silent part.

Re: Kick Drum physics experts in the house?

Noticed today that tuning the reso really really low, lower than the batter, diminishes the ring considerably. You guys may be onto something with the port hole making this noise. I usually tune my...

Re: Kick Drum physics experts in the house?

Tried the 5th tuning today. It brought the drum up a little high but seemed to help a little. I didn't try covering or muting the port hole. I'll give that a shot tomorrow. I would like to try a...

Re: Kick Drum physics experts in the house?

Yes, this is very true. Sometimes they have the opposite effect. The toms will make your bass drum sound like it's nice and boomy, but to the mic it's wimpy nothing. My toms are all in their cases...

Re: Kick Drum physics experts in the house?

Also, I've never put an unported reso on this drum, so I wouldn't know. While I love the way they sound to me, the drummer, I am a studio guy and need the access the hole provides.

And I just...

Re: Kick Drum physics experts in the house?

I do not bury the beater at all. Beaters are danmar hard felts. I also have rubber, wood, and plastic beaters. Ring is present with all of them. The drum does this no matter how I tune it. I tend to...

Re: Toms wont stay tunned

+1 for tightscrews! I could tune my kit once and that's that. At gigs just wait for the kit to acclimate and it's good to go.

Kick Drum physics experts in the house?

I have a 22" Yamaha Oak Custom kick that I'm having a bit of a problem with. Some of you guys may know I can get a bit obsessive with drum sounds, and I've been focusing on really refining my kick...

Re: Unpopular Drumming Opinion Thread

+1 Absolutely no shimmer or wisp to them at all. I think this is probably why lots of people like them, but I like bright wispy cymbals. Give me some A customs or AAX over them any day.

Re: Insane experiments with shells, heads, and tuning.

Erik,

It would be the D# below middle C in the earlier example. D#3 about 155.6 Hz. I don't think I'll be uploading many individual samples, but my wife keeps trying to get me to do a video. I'd...

Re: Insane experiments with shells, heads, and tuning.

What are you tuning your snare to? It needs to be above the 8 or treat it like a tom and put it between two of the toms pitch wise. I don't like 8s for this very reason.

Re: Waiting for one tom

I had to wait 6 months for my 16 Oak Custom tom. I was told it was the last Yamaha drum made by the Sakae family. Worth the wait.

Re: Insane experiments with shells, heads, and tuning.

Not very. I find the manual a little useless and clipping it on the rim makes it malfunction quite a bit.

Re: Insane experiments with shells, heads, and tuning.

You're welcome. I'm surprised more people have not checked it out. The separation between the first two are the same. I like C minor all 4ths the best. I'll upload that one and some others later...

Re: Insane experiments with shells, heads, and tuning.

For now I'll just continue this here since this is where it started. All 4 toms were meticulously tuned to exact notes. When a drum is struck, like many plucked or struck instruments, it starts sharp...

Re: OH technique - front to back?

That's a pretty strange setup unless he was aiming for a Glen Johns type setup with one above the snare and another one over your shoulder point toward the floor tom. That can sound kinda cool.

Okay, so it's been a long time since I posted this original thread, and I have TONS of data to present. Here's what's coming.....

I had to special order a 16 for my Oak kit before I could fully...

Re: Insane experiments with shells, heads, and tuning.

Just got a Yamaha Oak Custom that I'll be optimizing over the next week or two. Tuning range seems similar to Birch with the projection of a thicker Maple shell. The toms are more even in volume with...
