    Does the Drum Dial serve a purpose if you're using a Tune Bot?

    Sounds like Drum Dial can shave off some time doing large macro adjustments before making small adjustments with the Tune Bot where as the Tune Bot may require more time to get you to that same overall spot?

    Does the Drum Dial serve a purpose if you're using a Tune Bot?

    I currently have both and I've been thinking about selling my Drum Dial. Before I sell it I was curious if there are any roles the Drum Dial fills that the Tune Bot cannot. Is there any specific benefit to owning both or is the Tune Bot sufficient for most people? Thanks,

    Tama Star Cast Mounts - really wobbly?

    Resurrecting this thread like Mickey Mouse summoning the brooms dressed as a wizard. I was a bit concerned at the wobble in my Starclassic floor tom, but this seems to be normal. My kit was made in 2020 so I assume they've made no changes since 2016 regarding stability. Feels stable, just...

    Shoulder Injury

    Been having upper chest/shoulder pain and a tingling down to my fingers. Like you, it would come with certain motions, but now seems to come on more frequently. We’ve ruled out heart issues so going to do an EMG test next week to see if I pinched a nerve in my shoulder. Like you I assume...

    What's your latest purchase?

    Bought a used 4 piece Tama Starclassic Maple Exotix in ocean Blue Fade Mouningui. Was $2k. I like the finish and the drums were made in 2020. Seemed like a fair deal. Only downside is the finish was only available in 2019/2020 so it’s been hard to find the matching snare. This is what it looks...

    Open handed drumming - ideal drum/cymbal placement for a right handed drummer?

    Interesting to see the ride even lower than his hat. I’ll try that tonight. Currently I have it above my hat height wise.

    Open handed drumming - ideal drum/cymbal placement for a right handed drummer?

    Someone asked me earlier - why play open handed? Tbh it feels more natural for me. I never liked the cross over feeling playing hats. When I played on a friend’s kit in college I started by playing open and quickly heard, “that’s not how you play. You need to cross over like this.” I tried it...

    Open handed drumming - ideal drum/cymbal placement for a right handed drummer?

    Yeah I definitely need to move it to a better position. I’m limited due to how close I am to the left wall. Side note the accoustics in this room are horrendous. Any tips for stuff to add so it’s not so harsh sounding in this room?

    Open handed drumming - ideal drum/cymbal placement for a right handed drummer?

    I'll see how high it sits up, but I've heard this is kryptonite for shorter folks.
