    A different perspective, I suppose

    I quit that group about a year ago. Absolutely littered with judgmental condescending asshats....

    Does a drum rack save you time?

    I graduated (pun intended) to this set-up the last year. Lessened the visual impact of the rack. It also has a smaller footprint than it would with stands.

    Does a drum rack save you time?

    Yes, it saves time. Just like Ron Popiel says: "set it, and forget it" I could set up a 3 up, 2 down rack with floating snare basket, remote high hat, and 5 cymbals in about 10 minutes, and have everything exactly where I want it. Gigged this set-up for 6 years without issue. Never forgot a...

    Band meetings

    ^THIS^ ...and we have "Band night out" every once in a while to have a couple of bevs and bond. These have never devolved into negative repartee. I am fortunate to have a bunch of fabulous, but laid back, musicians, with no big egos, in my band. More often than not, the "mistakes" are brought...

    Hi Hat Height

    I switch between traditional and matched grip frequently during gigs, depending on the song, and do a lot of hat work utilizing both hands. The hats reside at the 10 o'clock position and are 3.5 inches above my snare. Just high enough that I don't crack my knuckles doing 16th notes on the hats...

    Ludwig Copper Phonic

    Had a Crush one for a short period of time. Throw was garbage, and hated their tube lugs. Traded it for another snare I can't even recall. Regardless. I ended up with the 6.5x14 hammered Copperphonic, and I am not disappointed.

    Does buying pre owned bother you?

    I carefully buy used equipment, in person only. Firstly, much of my snare and kit purchases have been vintage/collectors drums. Secondly, much of those purchases are far below market/retail value. I'm thrifty and openly admit that. I have had great fortune in finding some very rare and valuable...

    Copper Hoops

    Yes, as an answer to 2+ year old post, they hold up..... I have a Copperphonic with the Ludwig plated die cast, and I have a 402 with aftermarket plated Ludwig triple flange. Both hold up beautifully to normal practice and gigging use.

    I find the category "Ladies" to be quite insensitive. Can Drummerworld do a better job of giving female drummers the credit that they deserve?

    Why has no one has mentioned being offended by the annual "Hit like a girl" Site/Contest, that's been running for over a decade????
