    Becoming A Drummer Musically Opened My Mind

    I started out as a guitarist then turned bassist in the late 70's. I have been mainly into classic rock, blues, prog, fusion all my life. It had to be guitar-centric or complex, jazzy, classically influenced, epic, etc. etc. for me to listen to a piece music. I had no time for "lesser" forms...

    How Can I Get My Maple Snare Sound Fat?

    I have read many snare drum threads here but have not come across one that addresses my question, so I will ask for advice from you guys. My Taye 14x5.5 maple snare drum sounds great cranked up with the coated Ambassador batter head. But I have not been able to achieve a good low tuned sound...
