    Should the drummer be banned from the studio post-drum tracking?

    Should the drummer be banned from the recording studio after all the drum tracking is done? To me this seems like a power struggle which is unnecessary. No this is not regarding a session this is with a group in which the drummer does not get payed for his time. What are your thoughts? Thanks!

    Paiste 2002 hi-hats splitting after 1 practice?

    24" Giant Beat or Reverend Al Big Ride

    Tried doing something different for me... very terrifying.

    Hey all- so I was asked by my band's (very much a simple rock n roll band) producer's wife to do some playing for her upcoming album. I had not met her before and did not know she was such a bloody brilliant writer. We have not done very much so far... just two drum tracks in a 4 hour time...

    Hey all! So I just started playing with this band called Black Phoenix Orchestra a couple of months ago. We have one full band recording, bear in mind it is basement recording quality. Maybe because it was recorded in a basement, I dunno? It was also recorded live off the floor and not...

    PDP bass drum skins

    Hi all. So that is the exact same bass drum I have. 18x22" the problem is that no matter how I tune it, it sounds incredibly boomy, flat, and sloppy (currently have on factory heads). I am looking for a more punchy and aggressive attack. Not extremely so, just less....blah. If any of you...
