Re: Louder with or without port?

Re: Not doing a gig because of the venue

There are definitely places I don't like to play. So, if given the offer to play said venue, I might pass. Our band has a TON of gear. Guitarist has three heads and four cabs of various dimension,...

Re: Tell me if this is a stupid idea

Well Larry, nobody's charging you for the threads, so ask away. LOL. You could always go low tech and do something like Mr. John Henry Bonham used to do and place the heads of the sticks between...

Re: Tell me if this is a stupid idea

LOL. I use the same sticks. I don't drop sticks very often, but when I do, I go big. I might practice dropping sticks to get better at a smooth recovery. I played an outside show last Saturday...

Re: What's your latest purchase?

Cool. Those Tamas have a classy, classic look about them. Better to like the bass sound right off so you don't have to mess with the more expensive heads to get the sound you are looking for. I am...

Re: Professional responsibility

Aldo, not all people get the new world of the interwebs. This could be people that are just aloof, or Luddite hold outs. For instance, the only reason I finally caved in and got a myface account on...

Re: What's your latest purchase?

Nice cases man! So now that you have had a chance to use them a bit, what do you think? What do you think of the Large hardware case?

If I ever had to get something more substantial than my...

I wonder about what it would tale to make a storage container soundproof. There are a ton of cool modular/modified storage containers that people turn into homes. What if you connected two side by...

Re: How do you save up for gear purchases?

For large purchases, I try to fund it outside if my normal budget by picking up overtime shifts. I had good timing this year because I was able to fund my new Ludwig Classic Maple kit before they...

Re: Drum Kit Suggestion

You either need another bass drum, or at least a double pedal. There's just not enough double bass patterns in Jazz these days. That will get people's attention. If I went into a jazz club, and...

Re: What's your latest purchase?

Congrats, and good luck with that big hardware case. When my medium SKB hardware case is full, it is almost too much for me to horse into a vehicle, and usually smarter as a two-man lift. I can't...

Re: Trusting others with your kit?

Even better! Although not a sworn officer, I work in law enforcement. It can be sad, but nice to know when someone is lying to you. It just hurts a bit more if you know the person. It's not as if...

Re: hi hat dis-assembly

I break my DW9000 down so that I can put it in my SKB Medium hardware case. I take the hats off, put the clutch and large T-handled drum key in my stick bag. I pull the top tube, unscrew the rod,...

Re: Recurring dream - drum related

The bands in my dreams change, but the theme is the same. I find myself on stage, sometimes with random bands like Mettalica, Dave Mathews Band, or even my band. The band will begin the song, I...

Re: Why is it you never see threads saying....

That, AND... I just don't think of cymbals belonging in "sets". To me, sets are just some cymbals in a box. I look at my cymbal choices and think, who would put all these in a box? I could maybe...
