any thoughts on hi-hat technique?
any exercises or schools of thought?
i find that when the clock is tight (hi-hat or ride) the rest falls into place easily without overplaying or underplaying.
easier said than done when your mind on
a) that fat snare pop or
b) that tasty fill or
. Where do you get them ?
. What do you look for in a drum rug?
. Dimensions ?

and left side cymbal.
i need to replace the tips on my Studio Hybrid AB's. the trouble is, that i can't tighten them enough by hand to get them to stay on. is there a trick or tip to getting them to stay put, so that i don't have to check them every few songs to see if they have worked loose ?
otherwise, my Ahead...

forgive me if this has been discussed before...but
has anyone tried using a ported reso on toms instead of removing them completely ?
i would think the benefit would be:
a. keeping the drums in-round
b. bit of bottom head in the mix
c. a place to mic
d. less snare rattle.
anyone tried this ?
are the hats really that low in volume, or is the snare drum really loud ? i love the sound of the hats and wish i knew what they are, but i'm concerned about the volume.
i just noticed that when i play air drums i play bass with my heel (and always have).
is there such a thing as a Reverse Bass Pedal ?
one that is played with the heel of the pedal rather than the front ?
i'm not sure how such a pedal would be constructed, but nothing's impossible, right ?
am i the only one who's Nike running shoes pull apart at the flap (actually the sole that runs up over the toe) (but only on one foot) because of bass drum stompage and i have to get a new pair even though the rest of both shoes are in perfect condition, cause...you know...it's unsightly...
am i the only one who wakes up in the morning with my bass foot stuck in the Heel Up position and have to gently massage it out by slowly rocking my foot back and forth on the floor so that i can Run to the bathroom in peace ?
forgive my ignorance, oh knowledgable types...but...
Wilco was on Letterman last night and the drummer played a stick with a smaller than a golf ball sized ball on the tip end. i was wondering what it's called and what it's uses are. although the song had softer sections and slamming sections...
people here have been telling me, that if i hurt from playing drums that it is My Technique that is the problem - be all and end all.
no one ever talks about icing down and massaging.
i swear to GOD, drumming HURTS and it is NOT LOW IMPACT.
