    Remo Pinstripe

    Yep. It’s probably the best use for pinstripe ( on a bass drum ) that I’ve found. Don’t really care for them on toms or snare.

    Soloing; are you into it?

    This is a very good take on it . I don’t solo just for the sake of soloing. It has to have some kind of musical reasoning behind it.

    You Have To Hit The Toms Hard (Enough....sometimes :) )

    You may be confusing just “hitting hard “ for “hitting consistently “ . Sometimes it’s easier to hit hard to get a good consistent recording.

    Tama SLP 6.5 x 14 Kapur Snare is ringing like Crazy!

    This could be something “mechanical “. Maybe : bent hoops , tension rod, tube lug , and maybe just improperly tuned ( there maybe a reason you can’t tune it- see all the above ).

    I use the Evans dry on a copper snare of mine , Mapex predator. I tune it down nice and low. Think “midnight train to Georgia “. No muffling needed.

    Why today's music sucks...

    Oh absolutely. It’s funny he picked “pet sounds” and “Sargent pepper”. The two most well known albums from that era that utilized the newest technologies of the time. Also - old wannabe hippies over 60 with long hair and ear rings should instantly be ignored. Get with the now man !

    Ooh , great topic ! I broke a lot of bones in my hand a few years ago. Pretty much had to re-learn how I hold sticks. Steve smith was a huge help to me
