    If You Put the ReelFeel Pad on a Snare Drum... actually makes it quieter. I needed my stand to be about 3" taller with just the pad. I had no way to make it taller, so I put an unused snare on it. I then put the pad on the drum. I had actually expected it to make the tapping louder. I was both surprised and pleased as I use the pad in...

    How Things Are Made

    I love this stuff. I've worked in almost every aspect of manufacturing, including design. Machines running and folks assembling products never gets old. Here is vinyl records: Fun fact, vinyl is made from PVC, same thing as plumbing.

    I went to a thread started by @SpazApproved. It had this at the top: I went to another thread and it had no tags. I clicked on the tag itself, and a box to Edit Tag popped up. What are they for? Why would I want some? Why can anyone edit them? I feel old right now.

    Bands That Don't Play Live

    Could be never, could be rarely. This is about the composers, and what do y'all think about it? Some contenders: The Beatles Steely Dan Infant Annihilator I'm in it for the end result. I dont really care if the bands can play live or not. I'm sure others will feel differently. What say you...

    Homemade Clamp

    I have a Pearl hi hat stand that can not be modified to rotate. I want to use my double pedal with it because I like it better than my other 2 hi hat stands. I dont have a clamp available to attach it to a secondary tripod, so I decided to make one: In use: I had a long stick of 3/4" ply...

    Homemade Beater

    I decided to make a tennis ball beater. I took an old wood beater that was laying around: There is a nut at the top. I removed it and took the wood ball off. I then stole a tennis ball from my kids dog Daisy, drilled two holes in it and attached it to the shaft: I like it. It's a bit wild...

    Is Metal the New Rock?

    A few folks in other threads have mentioned the lack of guitar based music currently. There was also a mention of no guitar solos. I've been thinking about this since, and listening (radio), and it's pretty true. There absolutely are new guitar bands on the radio, but they have become the...

    A New Idea to Confuse Yourself With

    This is something I've been working on for a couple years now. I dont have any way to record a decent video, so I'll explain as best I can. This is your reference song: The song itself doesnt matter, the basic framework of the linear beat is all that matters: H-S-H-K. I only include the song...
