I should point out all I have is time when I m not teaching. Today I began trying different head combinations and tunings for snare drums at 9.00 am. It was not until 1.10 pm I even thought about breakfast. I had been busy tuning all that time. I tried 5 different head combinations on the Warlord alone. Not to mention the other snares covered. 8 in all.

When not doing that I practice or teach. This is my life. Sad but true. It's all I do.

Out of interest, are you playing in bands, major projects or something? Other than that, your lifestyle must be similar to Virgil's :). Part of me envies this.

Default Re: Some of my gear. Beginning with my favorite subject, snares

Recently due to health issues I have only been teaching. I am kind of sick of gigging at the moment as well. But I have gigs coming in three projects in November. A blues band, rockabilly band and percussion with a pop outfit.

Mainly though I teach. When not teaching I practice, study music and tune drums. Today I am not proud. I blew off my 83 year old father to tune snare drums.

I am told I am one of the biggest drum nerds ever. This is why I know things like how singers came to prominence, cowbells, the relationship between styles etc. I constantly read the histories of various kinds of music.

This is my life. It's yours if you want it.

Istanbul Mehmet cymbals.

22" Nostalgia 1950's umbrella profile ride. The most luscious ride cymbal I have ever heard, and it crashes beautifully.



Made and autographed for me by the man himself.

22" medium Legend Dark ride.

Sweet, dark sounding cymbal. Crashes wonderfully of course and it sounds like it came from a classic Miles album with Tony.

Course lath on top...




Fully lathed underneath.

14" Mehmet Legend Dark medium hi hats. These nearly made a bass player wet himself on a gig when he first heard them, and now he wants his own pair.

Great looking cymbals Wy, I especially like the rough lathe work on the Legend hats & ride. Don't worry too much about the bass player, it's a common problem, lol! Is this the result of the sweet deal you referred to a few months ago?

In the past I have always turned down "deals" with companies. I considered a Sonor deal and then the IFC happened and the deal was off the table. But then I was introduced to Mehmet. I am not going to fully endorse them due to my wanting to keep my options open. However, I have accepted the metal I have been given, with more to come. I expect 6 ride cymbals, 2 hats, various crashes and splashes.

I have to say though, these are the best cymbals I ever heard. I've retired all my Sabians, Zildjians etc. They simply cannot compete.

(The guy who made my Nostalgia is the same guy who made cymbals for Tony Williams!)

At a recent Stanton Moore clinic he had one of the pandeiro on a stand to the left of the hats, with a bass drum mic and had it EQ'd very low and wow what a sound he got from it. Louder than any gong drum.

Great photo Gruntersdad! Yeah pandeiros are wonderful. I have 3, two 10's and a 12".

Swiss I have a gig next Saturday. If any recording is made I will see what I can do. It's only a rockabilly thing.

Mate where in Australia are you? You must've spent a fortune on everything, especially considering the inflated prices of things here... 'less you got them shipped from outside, which is still a significant investment.

I do not want to sound idiotic (hard for me not to) but I tend to see the biggest investment by me was time spent practising. So many hours on a pad has no price.

And still it got me nowhere. Quite an investment.

Glass snare drums anyone? I've got one on the way with pics as soon as I get it. And I do mean real glass. The only ones out there right now are in the hands of ?uestlove, Danny Carey, Kenny Aronoff, and Steve Gadd. I had a chance to play the one that got shipped to Steve and it had a unique focus and complexity and was the most responsive snare I've ever played.

No. It is pretty much as new.

Oh and I have found the guy who borrowed my Slingerland 14x6" classic maple from 68. I loaned it to him in 97 and he never returned it. I am now on the hunt!

I want my snare back. And the case I loaned it to him in. It's a fantastic snare. You can see it behind me on the floor as a spare in this old photo. Its black. Find the Ambassador head first LOL.



Oh and that Rogers was given to a student as a reward for a lot of hard work. I still see him from time to time when he wants to check on his technique.

They are African. You see my friend, I am NOT a drummer. I am a percussionist. As such I am alowed by law to wear anything. Especially pants like that made in Africa.

A woman asked me the other day, "What is the difference between a drummer and a percussionist?" I answered: "If you hand a drummer an ash tray, he'll light a cigarette. If you hand a percussionist an ash tray, he'll play it."

Dude, I've been on stage in nothing buy my underpants. ;) (Inspired by Bozzio)

Those pants are nothing!

That kit was stolen in a robbery, by the way. Including that 20" ride cymbal given to me as a 21st birthday present by my dying mother. All the snares were on tour with me at the time. All my Zildjian cymbals were lost. I was left with my touring Paiste collection and those snares. And the Remo touring kit.

Hi dude!

I'm Brazilian drummer, I live in Brazil and I am very impressed with all their equipment. SONOR snares are so perfect, like the others also YAMAHA Steve Gadd.

About the Brazilian instruments, if you need any information from any of them, just ask me that I will be happy to help you, ok?

Regards and once again, congratulations on your equipment!

Today I received a new reco reco from Liverpool barqueta. I will pass it onto a great young student.

Do you play Brasilian percussion? IME most Brasialian drummers do not know their own heritage and spend time copying Dave Weckl LOL.
It's good to know that Brazilian music and Brazilian instruments transcend borders and reach on all continents. This store (Epírito de Samba) I do not know here in Brazil, unfortunately.

Here we love and we are born knowing samba drumming, because everything involves
that rhytm, especially during Carnival. But many, many musicians love and study hard the grooves Americans, especially the jazz.

You're endorser of Liverpool?

I play some percussion instruments such as tambourine (aka "caixeta"), agogô, pandeiro, tantã (aka "rebolo"), repinique (aka "repique"), surdo, triâgulo, zabumba, and that's it! But
instruments that actually play and study is the drums.

We have many influences Brazilian Drummer (I recommend you "Kiko Freitas" watch on YouTube), but idolize drummers in the world whole. I'm Particularly fond of Buddy Rich, Dave Weckl (because of him using my nickname), Joe Morello, Jojo Mayer, Benny Greb, Thomas Lang, Aaron Spears, Dennis Chambers, etc...

Sorry by my english. LOL

Thanks!

How about you start a thread on the top 10 Brasilian CDs of 2010?

It is hard to get this stuff here in Australia. Even harder to find information in English. I would appreciate the help.

Well, kind of. At this time I am supposed to write a review of their sticks before the NAMM show. But my dad fell down stairs and I am nursing him full time. (I had to give away a NYE gig to do it) They sent me a box of sticks a few months ago. They are quite good. I dislike the native Brasilian sticks due to lack of rebound. But the hickory sticks were amongst the best I have played. But they sent me just one pair. And one brush!!!!

How the hell could I review one brush????

They have a long way to go before they can compete with Vic, Pro Mark, regal tip etc.

But their instruments are great. I received a Liverpool reco reco the other day and its wonderful. Beautiful sound. I will give it to a student. (I have too many reco recos)

Cheers mate.

As for endorsements. I have always turned them down. I prefer to choose my own sound. I have done many favors for companies but never fully endorsed anyone. Silly because I probably could have used the press. But my ideas are my ideas. No matter how misguided. I've played to millions of people. But nobody knows who I am. We must follow our own course. I will do this for Liverpool. But no one will know.

It has always been thus.

Dude, sorry by delay answer you, but I was traveling because the new year party. The purpose, HAPPY NEW YEAR ALL!

Well, your idea are great! And I start with the new instrumental CD of amazing brazilian bass player, Ney Conceição. The CD name is "Swingado" and is a mix of brazil and latin rhytms, like samba, latin-jazz, and others grooves of here. To me, the best track is "Bertrami's Song", is amazing samba-funky!

Hugs.

Yes, I perfectly understand you. Here, we use a lot Vic Firth, but the nacional factory of sticks are growing and bettering.

I hope your dad stay better soon.

Thanks mate. As it turned out I have been too busy with dad, sleeping in an office chair since 23 December to do anything. I did receive some gear from Turkey and Brasil. I will post the pic's soon.

Well, your idea are great! And I start with the new instrumental CD of amazing brazilian bass player, Ney Conceição. The CD name is "Swingado" and is a mix of brazil and latin rhytms, like samba, latin-jazz, and others grooves of here. To me, the best track is "Bertrami's Song", is amazing samba-funky!

Hugs.
Awesome! I am a bit all over the place right now, but I will check it out.
