    Need help identifying a Gretsch snare

    It's been a while ... Here are some additional pictures from the inside of the drum. Now I think there's probably about nothing genuine on that snare. The snarebeds are ridiculously high and not centered at all.

    Need help identifying a Pearl snare

    Thanks MrInsanePolack and sacco, much appreciated (although it's been quite a while – I'm sorry😬!). Do you think the drum would be of any selling worth if I don't have any use for it, or should I rather keep it?

    Hemiola vs. Polyrhythm

    Oh come on, I think you made your point already. It's good now. Discuss the matter or just read, or stay away from the thread. You don't seriously think I will enjoy playing drums less because of this thread and discussion, do you?

    Hemiola vs. Polyrhythm

    So it seems there are two excluding definitions of hemiola in this thread now: a) a hemiola is a 3:2 polyrhythm; b) a hemiola is an odd grouping, like groups of three 16ths, if I got brentcn's post correctly. As far as I know, hemiolas are not polyrhythmic, but a kind of syncopation that...

    Need help identifying a Pearl snare

    I have a Pearl snare that sounds quite cool. It looks like it wasn't of the cheapest sort, but I don't know ... Can anybody help me identify this model? Unfortunately it's damaged in a quite ugly way (no idea what happened, I got it in this condition). Thanks for your help!

    Need help identifying a Gretsch snare

    Some time ago I got a Gretsch snare. I think it's a frankenstein one. Unfortunately I have no clue when it comes to Gretsch, let alone older models. Can anyone help me and guess what I have here, and if the snare has any value whatsoever? Thanks!!

    New Leprous album – all around best musical moment for me!

    Haha :LOL:!! Glad you like it! I attended their concert in Switzerland a few weeks ago, and they closed their set with the song. It was just mind-blowingly bad-ass!

    New Leprous album – all around best musical moment for me!

    While the newest album by Norwegian prog band Leprous does polarize (it's rather quiet in comparison), it surely has one of the most experimental songs in it: The Sky Is Red. The closing section / second half of the song must be one of the hottest riffs and moments ever, to me at least! I so...

    New attempt from a Jim Riley track from the "Survival Guide Of The Modern Drummer"

    After almost a year I finally tried one more Jim Riley play-along from his great and very recommended book. I like his "Hip-Hop" track, and I tried it in a swung version although the original is "officially" binary. I purposely haven't listened to any other versions, let alone an original...

    Shure SE535 vs UE-4

    Hi all I know, there are several threads around talking in-ear systems. I haven't found anything that answers my specific question though: Does anybody have experience with BOTH the SE535 model and the UE-4? It's the two of them I narrowed down my wish list, and I'm not s(h)ure how to decide...

    Ableton live vs. Logic Pro

    I'm considering switching from Logic Pro 9 to Ableton Live 9 (standard, probably). Has anyone experience using both DAWs? I'll have to buy new software anyway since Mac OS High Sierra is coming, and Logic 9 won't be compatible anymore, so I either will have to uprade to Pro X, or take the...
