    Cymbal Stand Help / Advice

    I wonder why you started two threads on the same subject... Here's a cymbal stand with the original tilter (you just miss this tilter to get a normal cymbal stand). Here I replaced the tilter with this bar that you do have, but which is incomplete. Here is an element that you miss...

    Cymbal Stand Help / Advice

    Here it is, but yours isn't complete. It is meant to make a closed extra hat. It replaces the tilter on a cymbal stand, Then the tilter goes to the element that is on the right, so you can have an extra hat plus another cymbal on top of it. https://shop.musix.ch/en/Yamaha-CSAT940-143529.html

    It looks like something I have to make an extra (closed) hi-hat. Missing à few pieces, though.

    Dante Agostini method teachers?

    I've known the Agostini books since the 70s, since they were the main drum books published in French. I have a few of them, but I haven't opened them in a long time. The small "rhythmic solfège" books were quite standard when I was studying (and then teaching) solfège at the Conservatory, and...

    What is Lightest Drum Kit Available

    Here is the new Yamaha Stage Custom Hip set, which looks interesting: Starting with a 20”x8” bass drum which Yamaha says offers “a deep tonal low end as well as smaller footprint”. Next up is a 13”x8” floor tom, which doubles as a snare drum - perfect if you’re in need of two snares for some...

    Color of Absolute Hybrid Maple Classic Walnut

    Classic Walnut was my least preferred color until I was offered a set at such a low price that I couldn’t resist. Now that I have it, I absolutely love it.

    Time Manipulation - the eBook version is available @Hudson Music

    Would you be after the simpler stuff or the more complicated? Some of the simplest examples are on my YouTube channel at the moment, but I may change this soon. I feel that the examples work best if you look at the book at the same time. There are articles on my blog, related to the book or...

    Time Manipulation - the eBook version is available @Hudson Music

    Yes, I would see both books as being complementary. I worked on The New Breed myself, and I remember being still working on The New Breed II while writing the first version of Time Manipulation. I wouldn't have written my book if I had thought it was competing with any other book I knew. Time...

    Time Manipulation - the eBook version is available @Hudson Music

    Thanks for your purchase, I wish you much pleasure with it! For obvious reasons, the ebooks at Hudson are not printable, so on a music stand it’s best to use them on an iPad or android tablet. But there’s also a printed version available here, and there’s a 10% or 15% rebate at the moment...
