Re: Creative/minimalist kick drum muffling ideas?

Well if that's the case, use an old feather pillow.

Sorry, that's all I got.

Re: Maple/mahogany and Birch/mahogany sound characteristics

I also think that the quality of the type of tone woods is a major factor as well. Not all maple is created equal.

I'm with Garry. Trust your gut, brother.

Re: Creative/minimalist kick drum muffling ideas?

I've used all kinds of crap, from pillows to laundry.

Just buy an Emad and be done with it.

Re: How do I tell my friend that his expensive custom handmade snare is shit?

Isn't it funny how sometimes "more expensive" doesn't always mean "better?"

I guess my question is, does HE like the sound of it recorded? If so, my best advice is to just let it be...as...

As Watso said, it's just stuff. The less stuff you have, the less stuff your family has to go through whenever you're gone.

Re: What year is this acrolite?

The more I've researched, the more I'm thinking this is from the 80's. That coating is factory.

What year is this acrolite?

Found this online for a good price.

What year is it?

The owner states that it's a '79, but the numbers don't seem to go along with that.

Re: Songs With Variable Tempo

I filled in for a band one time, and one of their songs had the most abrupt tempo changes of any song I've ever heard, never mind played. It was an original song, so there's no evidence of it...

Re: Mapex Armory's

They are great drums for the money. A guy I know has them, and they are super-easy to tune and sound better than one would expect.

Re: Covers that don't work with the original drum part...

I sort of found this to be the case in some worship music that came out in the early-to-mid 1990s. Everyone was doing his/her own thing in terms of writing parts and whatnot. No one followed it as...

Not to be a thread-robber, but how loud is the BOB as compared with other Pork Pie snares?

Re: When you fight the music, your instrument just sounds bad

What if that person's time keeps getting slower and slower. Every song. Every time.

At some point, the other people should know to keep time with the drummer.
