Transporting a drum set when homeless?

As the title suggests, I may end up being homeless soon. That's fine, honestly. I've been homeless before, and I adjust well to the lifestyle. My major challenge this time, though, is that I'll...

Re: Exercises for Drum Set mobility

Thanks for all the tips, guys! I'll look into the Mortgenstein book first.

Exercises for Drum Set mobility

I've been drumming for a few years now, but I've never had an instructor. Most of my practice materials come from the exercises in Stick Control and A Funky Primer. This has been great for...

Re: Best vehicle for a gigging band?

I think I'd tone it down to a half stack for each guitarist, then hook a small trailer to a VW Golf TDI. The diesel can pull it, I think.

"Hal Leonard's Drumset Coordination" - comments?

I saw that this book was in 3rd place for a Drummie award from Drum Magazine for instructional book of the year. Anyone ever used it? Thoughts?

Re: Excruciating leg pain the day after a jam session

Thanks again for all the input, guys. I took some prescription pain killers an hour or so after I created this thread. The pain ebbed off pretty quickly and was completely gone this morning, so I'm...

Best vehicle for a gigging band?

I'm not in the market or anything. I just thought this would be a fun little topic to ponder.

So here's the scenario. You've got a 4 person band. Two guitarists with full stacks, a bass...

Re: Excruciating leg pain the day after a jam session

Thanks for the replies, guys. Told me what I already knew, but you're right. If it gets worse I'm off to the doc. :-P If he says it's drumming related, I'll post about it here as a word of caution...

Excruciating leg pain the day after a jam session

Last night I had a really amazing jam session with my regular guitarist and a new bassist. We played for about 4 hours straight with no breaks because we were so in the zone. At one point during...

Re: Want to go to Berklee for Music Ed degree - unrealistic?

I'm open to learning any and all instruments, really, and learning theory and composition is something I'm really excited about potentially doing. So this, at the very least, won't be an obstacle.

Re: Want to go to Berklee for Music Ed degree - unrealistic?

Want to go to Berklee for Music Ed degree - unrealistic?

I never really had much interest in being a music teacher. Then about 4 months ago I saw a video on YouTube of a middle school music ensemble covering Tool's "46 & 2", and it blew my mind. The idea...

Re: Ludwig's new Signet 105 drum line!

I saw that you have an SST on the floor tom. Not a fan of the stock heads? Or do they not come with stock heads?

Re: Ludwig's new Signet 105 drum line!

So I thought the Signet line was going to feature toms that you could purchase individually to add to your shell pack. Where can a guy find these for sale?

Neurology, learning, and the benefits of meditation for musicians

Everything we do in our lives, from the most simple and fleeting thoughts to the most complex endeavors, are affected (and limited) by our brains' capabilities to accomplish the task at hand. Be it...

Re: Help me choose a shell pack? (I know, sorry.)

The finishes seem really divisive. I, for instance, really like all of the finishes, and I absolutely love the Macassar Ebony. I was never a huge fan of the sparkle wraps Ludwig uses on their...

Re: Help me choose a shell pack? (I know, sorry.)

There are two major differences between the two lines, as far as I can tell. Well, three.

1) Singets are all maple, where as the Epics are 3 plies of birch on the interior, 3 plies of birch on...

In all seriousness, though, a Ludwig shell pack made in...

Re: Help me choose a shell pack? (I know, sorry.)

Wait..the only ones left? Do they not manufacture Epics anymore? Are they getting phased out when the stock sells off? They're still featured on the Ludwig webpage.

Re: Help me choose a shell pack? (I know, sorry.)

I hadn't considered buying a 5 piece and getting add on toms. That's a thought. I'll do some research on that. Thanks! :-)

Regarding the Yamaha Stage Custom Birch kit that was referenced: I'm...

Re: Help me choose a shell pack? (I know, sorry.)

Thanks for replying!

I can definitely see the cost-benefit logic of buying used shells, and I know that the conventional wisdom on this forum is to buy all of your gear used if you're on a budget....

Re: Help me choose a shell pack? (I know, sorry.)

I'm wary of buying used, due to lack of warranties and the risk of rip-offs, but I do browse craig's list, ebay, and guitar center's used listings from time to time.

Never thought of putting a...
