Re: Rush HOF acceptance speaches....

Re: For those in cover bands, how much do you stray from the original drum parts?

Re: Gretsch Renown '57s Jazz Bop Shell Packs Now Deep Discounted?

Re: For those in cover bands, how much do you stray from the original drum parts?

Re: Pro's that use maple snares

Use a thicker batter single ply or a 2 ply like a G2 coated. Almost every snare I have ever put a G2 coated on sounded good. Snare sounds are totally eye of the beholder along with wherever your...

Re: For those in cover bands, how much do you stray from the original drum parts?

Play it just as original or as close as you can. Nothing will sound better than the original song, so if you play it just as it is or close it will sound great. To me a great cover band sounds as...

Re: Gretsch Renown '57s Jazz Bop Shell Packs Now Deep Discounted?

Re: Gretsch Renown '57s Jazz Bop Shell Packs Now Deep Discounted?

OK, I checked, my beater is past center, not really bad, I may add a washer or 2 to shim the bracket closer to the front of the kick. I'm just so used to playing on other kits all the time so a pedal...

Re: Gretsch Renown '57s Jazz Bop Shell Packs Now Deep Discounted?

Re: Gretsch Renown '57s Jazz Bop Shell Packs Now Deep Discounted?
