Re: Female Drummer Project/Questionnaire

Which is part of why I think this forum is so populated by womenfolk. ;)

The forums I came from originally were populated by very masculine men with Genitalia for brains. ;) Lots of "Hottest...

Re: Female Drummer Project/Questionnaire

I just realized, we have a pretty decent number of women on here, don't we? A lot more than I ever met on guitar forums.

I think part of why we meet so few female musicians on forums, generally...

Re: Trimmed down kits

Fair enough... Should have added the "in my personal and somewhat limited experience" disclaimer, lol.

All I'm saying, then, is that I write more creatively when I have less to work with, because...

Re: Female Drummer Project/Questionnaire

I mean, both sides have their struggles, but definitely feminine men can have it a little worse off than most guys. I've experienced a lot of harsh words for wearing makeup, shaving, etc... Mostly...

Re: Trimmed down kits

Not the same. At all.

A more appropriate comparison would be a seven or eight stringed guitarist switching to a six stringed guitar, so that they don't find themselves relying on extra strings to...

Re: Trimmed down kits

But why do people need rows of toms? Two up/Two down is reasonable, but after you go beyond that, I just fail to see the point. Having more than you need does not inspire creativity... Imo, of course.

Re: The "I wish I hadn't opened my big mouth" thread ;)

Do you have to play?

Personally, if I could, I would offer to do a lecture of sorts, rather than play in front of a group like that. It's an idea, although you might just have to get up there and...

Buying and Selling - Used drums/cymbals?

Buying and selling was my thing when I was into guitars... I made a very reasonable amount of money on those sales. How is it when it comes to drums? How is the market? I know there are a few...

Re: What's going with Just Drums? Store closing?

What I believe he's referring to is when rather than buy 1 or 2 really nice cymbals and a decent four piece kit, new players go out and buy loads of crap drums and cymbals.

Re: The best kits we've ever made - Honest Capture videos!

Love the ash.

What cymbals were used to demo the origin? Looks like vintage pure rides, jazz hats, and vintage crash in the first tuning? And sand ride with 16" extra dry hats in the second? And...

Re: Trimmed down kits

I don't know... I feel like the reason that this is is that straight tom rolls and boring fills are no longer interesting at all. Creativity is considered a very important part of being a "good...

Re: Shallow Toms.

Huh. I know for a fact that this tom was made from a snare shell(No beds)... Perhaps that was part of it?

Part of it may be taste. I don't care for the sound of really good drums, because I don't...

Shallow Toms.

Tried a set today, I really enjoyed them. How come so few players use these? They seem to cut quite a bit of the sustain, and sounded more punchy than what I'm used to.

I believe the rack was 6 x...

Re: What's your latest purchase?

Hey, sorry to take so long.

I didn't like the dark crash much because I didn't feel it was very versatile at all. It worked as a very trashy, high pitched crash, and it was very thick. Just not my...

Re: Gretsch Catalina Club Jazz Owners

I have one! First run, single lugs. Wmp, pinstripes on the toms, vintage diplomat on the snare, powerstroke on the bass with some light muffling.
