    Upgrading mics (a couple of questions)

    I started micing my kit a few months ago. Because I didn't really know what I was doing, I got a cheap mic kit just in case I changed my mind. Now, I am looking at a more expensive option. Right now, I am using a PGA 81 and Roswell Mini K47 as overheads in a Recorder-Man config. I am...

    Gear you wished existed...

    I've only been playing for a very short time now, but even still, there are two pieces of gear I wished existed: 1. Promark Natural 5As with an ACORN tip (I personally don't like the feel, sound or look of the teardrop shape) 2. A drum throne that has both a swivel and a lock feature (meaning...

    Porter & Davies BC Gigster user Qs

    Hey everyone, I have a few simple questions for those that own a Porter and Davies BC Gigster; 1. Does the "link out" work basically as a passive out? Meaning, can you run the bass drum mic cable to the Mic in, and then go out with another XLR into an interface for recording? 2. How is the...

    Examples of a 14x8 Snare in a Mix?

    I am interested in a purchasing a 14 x 8 snare. But I've heard from a couple posters on various forums that they can disappear in a mix pretty easily. I wanted to see if anyone had a recording that they know a 14 x 8 snare drum was used (or some of your own recordings). I'm having a hard time...

    Roland SPD-SX Question for those who own one...

    Do you know if there is a way to copy all data from SPD-SX to another? I know it sounds strange but I'm wondering if it is possible to maybe copy the kits/settings from one unit and "paste" them into another. Thanks to anyone who has some insight on whether this is possible or not. *I...

    EZ Drummer 2 + Alesis Nitro new bug, need help

    I have been using Toontrack’s EZ drummer 2 with Alesis Nitro Mesh Kit for about a year. Everything worked perfectly but now it will only work for a couple minutes tops before EZ Drummer just stops reading anything from the E Kit.

    Does this sound like it could work? (Offset tom mounting)

    A Gibraltar 9713PM + a Tama MTH1000 Here's what I am thinking: Attaching the Tama double tom stand to the "centered" clamp in the front (the one that is holding the tom in this photo): and mounting two toms (10" and 12") on the Tama MTH1000. I would probably mount a cymbal on one of...

    Wood Hoops and Clear Batter Heads (TAMA SLP Maple Studio Kit)

    Hi, I've been looking into a few drum kits and listened all the demos of the TAMA SLP kit that I could. In all of them, they either have the stock coated heads or after market coated heads. Is it pretty unpopular to put clear batter heads on drums with wood hoops? A better question I guess is...
