    Cody Carnes - The Cross Has the Final Word

    The tom part on the bridge was a little tricky to figure out, so I slowed down the video on Youtube and transcribed it. This is me playing along to the song with a brief explanation/slowed-down tutorial of the tom part at the end. The audio and video is just my iPhone 7. Sounds not too bad...

    Rapture.

    Rapcore: A dead genre? So growing up in the 90's, I really fell in love with Rapcore (at least, that's what we called it. I think some folks call it Numetal now). Rage Against the Machine is the best example. POD's Brown Album did a pretty good job. Project 86 and Blindside were other...

    New kit day: DW Frequent Flyer, Tobacco Burst.

    Recently I made a change in the kit at my church. My wife delivered our third child which provided me with an opportunity to listen to the kit from the audience perspective. I was not thrilled with what I heard. The kit was an MCX in Black Sparkle Fade in sizes 9x12, 16x16, and 18x22 with a...

    Least cost way to record drums for youtube stuff?

    I guess I'm you're typical mid-30's guy, a job, a wife, 3 kids, a dog. Not much time for drums and certainly not time to be in a band and gigging. On top of that, I play weekly services for our church (contemporary praise band ala Bethel) that includes a Thursday night 7-9 rehearsal and an...

    New to double pedals...keeping the slave pedal in-place.

    Hey guys, I just last Friday got my first set of double pedals after playing a single for 20 years. I got a secondhand set of Yamahas and they feel really good and have the features I wanted. Where I’m struggling is with movement on the slave (left side, I’m right-handed) pedal. I have the...

    Tablet as a music stand?

    Anyone using a tablet as a setlist/music stand? The setlist concept would be pretty easy, but the songbook thing might be a little more complex. A couple of the guys I play with at church use an ipad and I think it looks really slick. In fact, the guitar player even has a pedalboard that...

    Semi-OCD thread: Yamaha pedal help

    I hope you guys will humor me and my OCD tendencies with another topic: I own and enjoy using the relatively lightweight Yamaha 700 series hardware. This is coming from having been a die-hard DW 5000 and 9000 user; the weight just became more that I was willing to put up with. My hi-hat stand...

    Yamaha Flying Dragon Pedal Help

    Hey guys, so I've been a single pedal player my whole life and am pretty quick if I do say so myself. Anyway, I'd like to start dabbling in double bass I think. Last year I found a good deal on a used Yamaha Flying Dragon pedal and when I received it (Guitar Center used) I found that it was...

    DW Collector's fine tuning/setup help

    Hey guys, so my new DW Collector's kit arrived last night and I'm very excited. As it was a NOS kit, there are some things it came with and others it didn't. Coming from Pearl, there are some things that are different that I'd like some help/ideas with so I don't have to reinvent the wheel: -...

    New DW Kit, worth it?

    So I have my nice Pearl Masters kit for sale and am hoping to replace it with some DW Collector's. I prefer the lower/deeper DW sound and frankly, really just like the whole brand. I was shopping used DW kits and found what I think is a pretty amazing deal on a brand new set in the EXACT sizes...

    Anyone close to Lemoor, CA? Need help getting a kit.

    Hey guys, I've got a line on a nice used set of deedubs located in Lemoor, CA. Is anyone close enough that you'd be willing to grab these, box up and get shipped? I would be willing to throw you some change for your help. Seller is telling me UPS store told him $600 to ship. I've shipped...

    Timeless wrap finishes.

    Hey guys, I'm looking at new kits and as much as I think lacquer kits are beautiful, I really appreciate not worrying as much about a wrap finish when I'm playing out. Hence, part of my decision to move my Wine Red Masters kit. The finish is just too pretty to risk messing up. I've got this...

    I love sweet new hardware.

    I love it even better when it's cheap! Typically I try to buy all my gear used, but I've been struggling to find just what I wanted on the used market. What I was looking for was a couple of the lightweight single-braced Yamaha straight cymbal stands. Yamaha discontinued them a couple years ago...

    Need some bass pedal help...Yamaha

    As some of you know, I use, enjoy, prefer Yamaha 700 series hardware for its light weight and high value/cost ratio. I came from DW 5000 series stuff and the pedal speed is where I noticed the most difference. The one I'm using is the FP7210 pictured here: I love how light and quick this...
