Re: Anyone ever switch your "brand loyalty?" (Mid-life crisis for me?)

After starting out playing Zildjian, and sticking with them for quite a few years, I switched a few years ago to Paiste.

I had always had issues finding "that cymbal" or "my sound" within...

Re: Lefty drummer problems

Im left-handed but play a traditional right-handed set up. For some reason, that has always made sense to me.

I'm also "right-footed". It makes sense to put that on the bass drum. Since I have...

Re: Ed. Thigpen.

Re: Rest in Peace Roy Burns

I had the pleasure of speaking to Mr. Burns a couple times. It didn't matter who you were, he would take the time to get you exactly what you wanted.

He was a class act..old Modern Drummer...

Re: How many have matching snare finish & brand with rest of kit?

For quite a while, I rarely had a matching snare; I used my 5" Supra for most gigs. Eventually, I just wanted something different as the Supra just didn't quite sound like I what I wanted.

Re: If you want to humble yourself to improve

Always, always, always record yourself. Grooves, practice pad stuff, etc.

I record all of my gigs and I learn something nearly every time I listen to a playback.

Re: Why does Mapex pic the worst people to Promote a new Snare

Yeah,I jut don't the issue here. Definitely not the "worst people" category...

I certainly wouldn't have thought it was annoying enough to start a thread about.

Classic Giant Beat recordings

This came from a discussion with a friend.

How many classic records, or even current records, out there feature Paiste Giant Beat cymbals?

Of course, early Led Zep featured Bonham playing GBs,...

Same here.

It could be argued that a singer's voice is his/her instrument.

Re: Small Snare Drum for Brushes

Personally, I wouldn't go smaller than a 13 if you're playing brushes on it. You could possibly get away with a 12" but I wouldn't want to.

Re: Bandmate comparing me to other drummer
