Default Something that's been bugging me!

Hi!

I'm a bit of an ignoramus and only registered to ask a question - hope you don't mind!

Greg Upchurch (3 Doors Down) loses his stick here:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V7RJYO3i8Ms#t=03m30s

He grabs his spare stick from something, but manages (whoops!) to pull the whole thing off and is lucky enough to throw it behind him and he gets away with it!

Here's the screenshot just before he goes for the stick:



My question is - what exactly is it that he grabs his stick from and throws behind him?

Just can't work out what it is!

Cheers :)

Any number of stick manufacturers make this product now, but Pro-Mark came first with it. It's called a Stick Depot:

Pro-Mark Stick Depot Model SD100

They offer them in sizes from one to like 6 sticks per tube. Many drummers use them without incident, so I guess he had a rough night...?

Many thanks alparrott

Judging by the pic in that product link - I can imagine how he grabbed the whole lot tho' - looks like a crocodile clip type thing?

Exactly. Some manufacturers make it with a more multiclamp-style mounting, but Pro-Mark never has. Grab too far, too hard, and I guess that's what happens...

ProMarks are the only stick holders I use. They stay put where I place them.

Sure, but then you have the gator clip angled away from you, so if you pull on a stick and it sticks at all, it's actually pulling the clip against the stand. Dude in this clip has the gator clip facing him, so I guess that's not the best way to set it up, eh?

Haha, good eye. Probably should fire his drum tech...or take a look at the "drinking and playing" thread on this forum. :)

Here's Greg Upchurch switching his stick again (different venue, same song), and it goes a bit better! ( around 2m 55s)
I thought he broke/lost his stick accidentally in the OP link, but he changes it on purpose in this clip (unless he has a habit of wrecking his stick in this particular song).

He's probably fallen backwards off of his stool before as well, judging by the hand getting a bit paranoid!.

I use a stick bag hanging from the floor tom as well as a smaller marching style stick holder that I strap to my snare drum. I don't know how I could get spare stick any closer to me than that.

I use a stick bag on my floor tom and a Vater stick holder on my hi-hat stand.

I tried the Pro-Mark one...briefly. I demoed it in a store and couldn't get it to stay on any stand. I could only imagine how easily it is to knock it off in the heat of the moment. It didn't seem very stable at all.

I use several different size and weight sticks and also like to change sticks after every couple of songs to get nice cool dry sticks in my hands. We elderly people have to take some extraordinary precautions now and again, lol. That's why I use so many different holders in tactical spaces.

I was in the midst of Goliath, by The Mars Volta....GASP!

Be that as it may, I was able to recuperate (in milliseconds) by absconding with my right hand, procuring said affiliate from my stick bag posthaste, and whilst taking up the lapse with my left hand, rebounding nicely with my bass drum foot....to the delight of me and my band mates....(I didn't miss a beat)....I was able to carry on admirably.

Oftentimes, rebounding with the left hand and bass drum accordingly, will cordially abscond the lost wooden appendage, and none will be the wiser...except, perhaps, observing the flash and spinning of the lost implement into the crowd...or worse...colliding with an unobservant band-mate...sorry to say!
Dude, Put the book down.

Come on now, that was funny!

At least when Destroy loses a stick, he gets another one. I just get up and walk away.... ;)

Just shows how out of date I am. I've never heard of those Promark stick holders before. Me thinks I'll get one of those.

I just slap a couple pairs on the kick drum and they rest against the lugs. Works fine for me.
