    Reinforced Symbol bag

    ha ! made ya's look! ;-) okay, For gigging, going the extra mile on protection; Who would make a 24" padded cymbal bag on vitamins; that has a hard-type bottom (that would be opposite the handle). Something that would prevent an accidental edge drop where it would normally get damaged. Would I...

    Practicing at home trying out different tunings

    I have always tried tuning to an arpeggio and have had very good success with this type of note separation between the toms. With my recent *quiet-kit layout (*for practicing at home), the kick drum likes to live at a certain note when played. I am tuning around that. So,now instead of my usual...

    Sitting at the helm of Pro's

    Some time ago, I have taken good looks at overhead views of Pro drummers and their kits, and realized that (for some) there is an alignment to their symmetry, or layout to each drum from where they sit. The relationship lies between several things. The throne - where you sit. The snare - in...

    New "quiet" drum kit !

    After some hard thought and a little help from several DW members I think that I may have made a very good decision :-D Contemplated financing e-Drums and with similar funding this was more of a sound choice and conducive to my needs. It is soo great that I can have a full acoustic kit to...

    Advice for dialing in 'both' heads.

    I have been using coated Emperor's & Ambassador's for the past three years and I think I do a good job tuning these heads with a 26" kit. I have a predetermined pitch that starts with my Snare and then to the single mounted Tom. Then down to both the floor Toms. I have been dialing in the all...

    Re-learn snare position

    Buddy Rich plays his hybrid. Both leaning forward and to the right. Waist high Bonham plays tilted back and raised up. I am tall and I badly picked up executing the rimshot and it is three years deep... I like the sound of Bruford's when he uses it, but tend to have my snare at crotch level...

    Tuning Vistalites

    Big Beats 22 18 16 13 12 6.5 Hi all, I have these tuned up very nice and are sounding huge. My question is; since these are not wood, (and have the consistency of Acrylic) is there a "resonant" pitch. Or, is there an opinion on each individual drum, and where they should be tuned to? I tuned...

    Paiste hi-hat choice suggstion

    I'd like to pickup a pair of hi-hats that are like my 15" SE's I thought about 14" SE's, but like to go the other direction with 17 SE's since we play Hard Rock-R&R. It seems they would sound like they would fair well with Paiste 22/17/19's. Also since they are heavier, will a DW3000 HH stand be...

    20" or 22" 2002 Paiste Ride suggestions...

    Paiste 2002 - 20" or 22" To compliment a 6 pc. 22" Ludwig Vistalite Big Beat set that I use for gigging. I play R&R and my Crashes are the newer 17" & 19" Crashes. I was thinking a 20" Ride, but 22" sounds like it might sit nice in the mix with the other cymbals.
