    Band won’t do “full” gigs

    The whole thing sounds really odd to me. Did the recording come out good? (did you play on it?-serious question.) Are they playin these "open Mics" to try to find another drummer? You say "they've played open mics". (did you know they were playing, and just weren't invited?.. or were thet "no...

    Ordered a used snare from Guitar Center.

    +1 And I'm near Manchester CT location..(although it seems there's NEVER anything in this store that I'm looking for). :/ T.

    Worst sounding drum track you have ever heard?

    Yea, I think in this day in age, It IS a lil too obvious. Who else thought this before even clicking the link? These threads should start by saying: "Besides the obvious Metallica Drum sounds, what is the worst.." etc.. ;) Now I gotta go re-listen to "No Bone movies", as we used to play that...

    Bass Drum Tone/Tuning Question

    +1 The bass player site I used to frequent had this discussion all the time. Lots of people had lots of "theories" about it, but the fact remains, when you take the bass cab off the floor, the low end changed- a lot. T.

    SOUND GUY small venue

    This is why back when I was in a "relatively" popular coverband (5pc band taking in $800-1000 a night to split) the booking agent got 10% off the top, then the sound guy got his $300-350, then we split the rest 5 ways. Now, this was a great sound guy with a LOT of pro gear that we always used. 1...

    what kind of tom heads should I use?

    Evans G2 (coated). I know several folks like the clear.. but gosh darn it, I like the coated. Now, when I was a teenager (in the 80s), the only answer was Pinstripes. Coated heads were for uncool "old people" with their Jazz and whatnot ;). The black dots looked too 1970's, almost as uncool as...

    Swap Premier Artist Maple for Crush Sublime E3 Maple?????? Thoughts

    Probably agree with this. ^^ But, I also wanted a Crush set for quite a while. .. I still find myself oogling over them now n again.. but Ive never really longed for a Premier either.. so who the heck am I to give an opinion? ;) T.

    Everything Hi Hats

    Not much productive to add ...except the obvious picture worth 1000 words.. 14" New Beats.. I imagine that even if I get the itch to try other flavors, these will always be "home". T.

    What are my options for what I want to do?

    I don't think there is any "EASY" way to go back and fourth between acoustic and "quiet/electronic". It can be done, Ive never seen it "easy" tho. I think Jose has the best solution to just get electronic kit. They don't feel really the same as an A kit, but it is much better than nothing...

    I could be wrong, but I think it's more about going through the motions, and learning how to "do the steps" than an actual "redesign" of a drum set (or anything for that matter). But I'm also suspect of someones 1st post including a link to any survey.. so theres that. I'd be curious to see how...

    Good video showing how Zigaboo plays "Cissy Strut"

    Interesting that his cymbals seem so tight on the stands (especially in the 1st video). Speakin of the 1st video (which I never watched until now) it was hilarious to see the guitar guy and bass guy "bouncing/bobbing/grooving".. exactly opposite each other. Well, hilarious to me anyway. I did...

    Mapex armory? Or... what else?

    Yea, Yamaha been around for a while and have the reputation (for good reason). I own (and love) the Yamaha stg custom- (in natural finish), But, I do love the look of that Mapex, and would probably be just as happy with IT. T.

    Accidentally sprinkled wd40 on one of my drum heads.

    Was it coated heads? If it didn't wipe anything away immediately, its probably gonna be fine. If uncoated head, should be just fine. Personally, I would make sure its all of, by gently wiping with damp cloth. (dampened with water ;) and a lil soap, then wipe again w just water n cloth, then dry...

    My First Band has ended. Kind of. Need advice..

    Wow. That sucks. So, instead of being honest and "letting you go", they all quit.. then got back together...without you. Like... Liberty Devitto said.. you just weren't asked to do the next thing (well, technically, asked to not do the current thing I suppose). Either way, don't let it get to...
