    Pearl Jam - Go (Drum Cover)

    Ultimately, sound is king, i.e. with the listener's eyes closed, if it sounds good, job well done, and you sound great. That said- and I realize you didn't ask for technique critique- you move your arms quite a lot at the elbow. You'd have an easier time getting the same sound with more hand...

    Has anyone tried the On-Stage version?

    Switching Bass Drum Hoops: Depth

    A small depth difference shouldn't result in your tension rods either no longer reaching the logs, or bottoming out in them.

    I still kinda want one of these. :LOL:

    Weighted drumsticks / BD beaters for practice

    I do have some thinner jazz sticks I use when necessary, also ProMark Hot Rods and Broomsticks, and the Vater... um, plastic kinda-rods, kinda-brushes with the wood handles, for quieter situations. I've simply found that the 808s and 707s suited nearly every musical situation I've ever been in. 🤷‍♂️

    Oak stick manufacturers other than ProMark and Tama

    I only recall Hickory and Maple.

    Weighted drumsticks / BD beaters for practice

    I just discovered the Extended Play series from Vater; anyone used them? I might try practicing with the EP version and gig with the regular 3A. I won't get much weight difference, but maybe the durability factor will win me.

    I don't think I can afford those! 😳

    Oak stick manufacturers other than ProMark and Tama

    I've found a few that look cheap and have bad reviews. Any good quality ones out there? Also, I was surprised to learn that Tama is in the game. They even have several sig. models. Good for them. ✅

    Have you tried the reply?

    I was today years old when I learned this! Sweet!

    Weighted drumsticks / BD beaters for practice

    I used to do the same. I think a short time with marching sticks to help get the blood moving was ok. I wouldn't use a bigger model of stick for practice and then suddenly use something radically different for gigs.

    Weighted drumsticks / BD beaters for practice

    I feel I should reiterate that I only used the heavier oak version of the same model for practice/rehearsals, so the dimensions were the same. Only the weight was slightly different. Even the balance felt the same. My muscle memory was never affected. What I realize I may have only imagined is...

    Weighted drumsticks / BD beaters for practice

    A current thread about changes to ProMark's offerings has me thinking about having to break a 25 year habit that's probably silly... So for about that length of time, I've played the 808 nylon model - great rebound, round tip aided consistency in tone, width between 5A and 5B. I get the same...

    Tama Superstar Drums (vintage original line)

    I realize I'm a little late to this, but Most of Tama's back catalogs going back to the 60s are here.
