That's lowered cymbals? Wow, how high were they before? With everything else SO low, why are the cymbals that high?

My style!
They are now a bit below eye level (3-4 inches).
What do you think of it though? Thats what this thread is about, not my set. The house!

Just two questions, why are you playing into a wall and yes your cymbals are very high?! It turned into just one question and an observation. Having your cymbals as high as that is one very good way of breaking them because of the way you have to hit them.

Well I am about 1.5-2.5 feet away from the wall. I do have plans to rotate the kit in the future though! Bass sounds like crap!
My cymbals are high to some, but I cannot get comfy to lowered cymbals. I have them tilted toward me at a 30 degree angle (approximately). I hit them from the top with glancing blows and a "swish/sweep".
I don't think they are in too much danger honestly (They are Z Customs too)!

My mistake, I'll try harder to stay on topic.

Then I'd suggest moving the house slightly and rotating it so the drums were in the center of the room and not facing a wall or corner. You'll get a lot of weird overtones bouncing back at you, especially from the bass drum, if you're too close to a wall.

I do! The bass sounds like "chuck". I will rotate the house though! I'll have to check with construction about when, but I will don't worry! ;)
I think I'll head there after school tomorrow (If I don't have too much homework), and move them around.

I wish I could have a "Drum House" :(

Your kit looks very uncomfortable, looks like you have to do the splits to get on the pedals.

But yeah back to the house, just rotate the drums out to your back is against the wall :D

I will rotate the kit.
The pedals are about as comfy as they get for me without my legs going into the snare drum.

Just out of curiosity, why is your snare drum so low? surely you hit your legs with your hands?

Nope. I sit just below where my hands go. Pretty close.
ALSO, how did you see my pedals on these pictures?

Ahhh fair enough, it's just looks low in the pictures :P

Well in one picture you can see the bass drum looks about two leg widths too far to the right and in the other picture it looks like the hi hat is really far away from the snare, but IDK if it's comfy then roll with it (:

Haha! I do! Its WAY more comfy than playing with my 10" tom up there along with my 12". Just adds another 10" to spread! (OUCH!)

The house kicks ass.

I think the looks of the spacing on the kit is deceiving. It's a 22" bass drum, with 10 & 12" toms, so the spread would be comfortable I'd think.
Eye level on cymbals isn't that high either, (all) the toms are just low to the bass drum, making everything else look real high.

I agree, rotate the house, no sense in messing up the kit if it's all positioned just right.
:-P!

That's super cool! Please tell me you are going to fix the pool though and use it and NOT fill it in! I see so many people that are big wussies anymore because of kids or insurance or other lame reasons to not want a pool. Nice place though.

LOL! Of course I'll use it! We just finished paving it today. we need to fix a small crack in the side though (uh-oh). It should be done in 3 weeks.

LOL! FUNNY! Yes, the toms and snare are all low, and that makes the cymbals look HIGH in the sky.
But, we will move the house. I talked to the contractors. Rotating starts next week ;).

Here's my feedback:

You are extremely lucky. I currently don't have 24/7 access to my drums, and they're a 30-minute drive away. So it has reached a point where I don't touch them or see them unless it's time to rehearse with the band.

If I had the same thing that you have, then that is where the band would rehearse.

Yeah, but how about when you're not being disciplined/punished? Do you otherwise have 24/7 access? ;)

Either way, though: you're extremely lucky. Plus, load-in and load-out is easy since it's all on the same level! No stairs!

Well yeah..... My neighbors moved out last month (I guess they heard who was moving in).
I sometimes sneak out late at night (12-3 AM) and play! I actually have a HUGE blister on my right index finger from just getting back! I wrapped it in duct tape and kept going! (I know I'm hardcore) LOL.
It is all easy to to load in and out! It took me 10 minutes to turn around my kit and kept on playing! When I first moved in it only took 30 minutes to do it!

Blisters on your fingers are not a good sign, regardless of how much you're playing.

It means you are gripping far, far too hard. I got blisters too until I learned to actually relax. Relaxed playing is far more powerful, too.

Well I'm about to head there right now!
I'll try playing relaxed. I play matched grip, how should I hold them relaxed while not dropping sticks?

Go and take a look at the 'technique' forum. There are dozens of threads there that explain it far better than I can.

The secret is to learn by dealing with the occasionally-dropped stick. It's frustrating, but it's also one excellent way to learn because you will begin to feel what it takes to hold the sticks at that fine line between hanging on and dropping it. After a while, it'll be completely automatic, and you won't have to think about it. Your playing will improve quite noticeably, and everything will feel easier.

Jim Chapin explains it really well: imagine that you're holding a very young (fledgling) bird. If you were holding one, then you wouldn't want to grip it too tightly or else it would be hurt, but you also don't want to hold it too loosely or else it'll fly away. So, you hold it as loose as possible while still not letting it fly away. So, it's literally a gentle grip and this allows the stick to do most of the work. When you're doing it right, it feels like magic: you make the motion, and the stick does it for you.

Jim also talks about avoiding the "iron thumb". There's a tendency for all of us to grip too tightly with the thumb, but that tightens up way too much of the forearm which makes it more difficult to play because the hands are not relaxed.

Actually, check out these videos:

http://www.vicfirth.com/education/dr...omfamularo.php

http://www.drummerworld.com/drummers/Jim_Chapin.html

http://www.youtube.com/results?searc...Mozilla-search (YouTube search results for "jim chapin")

The goal is actually simple: to have all of your drumming be as effortless as possible. That's why the greatest drummers make it look easy; it is because when you're doing it right, it is easy. ;)

Besides, it will also allow you to continue drumming until you're a very old man (just like Jim Chapin). I mean, it's your choice: you can continue playing the way you're playing today only to wear out and end up in pain at the same age as most professional athletes (35 to 45 years old), or you can work on your technique now so that you basically last forever.

I like the part about the bird! I still had to tape up when I went there today. But none of my other fingers started to hurt. I think I may be getting the hang of this! I still need about another 3 weeks to get accustomed to it.
By the way I have why right index and middle finger taped. My left middle, and pinky finger.
Where am I gripping hard judging by these areas?

The neighbors called the police.
My parents are fed up with me and my drumming, so I'm grounded from even touching drumsticks for a while.
^^^This isn't the whole story. There's a lot of stuff I don't feel like sharing.
********Just so you know, My parents don't support me playing, and hate my music.

obviously you're having a bit of trouble at the moment. All i would say though is that if they thought that then why did they let you use a part of their property just for your drums?

Default Re: Just got a "Drum House". LOOK!

Worst parents ever. :(

It sounds to me like it's time to begin a quest to either find a practice studio complex that has an affordable room for rent, or find a band that already has a room rented somewhere. Or better yet, find a band who's practicing somewhere that doesn't cost any money to use - such as one of the bandmembers' basements.

I'm in a band, the members live 1 hour away. So that's difficult.
I'm thinking of leaving, because we never play together anymore...

I don't think they are in too much danger honestly (They are Z Customs too)!
Z Customs are renowned to break quicker than A Customs, that's a fact. I know someone who's had 5 Z3 crashes in the space of 4 months.
