    Comping using hi hat

    I just came across this 10 minute video lesson on comping. I find his unpretentious and lucid teaching style refreshing.

    What's your latest purchase?

    A Paiste Signature Traditional 18" Thin crash cymbal gently used. Buttery feel with a less complex tonal character than other Paiste lines. Wish they would expand the line some more.

    Meytal Cohen? She plays, right?

    The bias displayed in some of the posts in the previous pages of this thread is fairly evident. Larry mentioned earlier that it was a potential minefield. The brakes probably should've been put on immediately at the first hint of sexism but It continues on... A disappointing area of...

    Price Check On Noble and Cooley Snare

    Yes I'd say that's a fair price on a classic SS in excellent condition. This week's conversion rate at 900 CAD = $679. USD Is the drum you're interested in a maple shell? I would just be certain it's the size you truly want. 5x14 is very versatile. I own a clasic SS I bought in 1989. Back...

    What are current trends that you like?

    I like the boutique drums that are available now compared to 'back in the day' when there where only a few big name manufacturers most guys new about (way before the internet). Also some of the mounting/hardware designs are very practical and there's now some innovative gear...

    Real wood veneers, or engineered?

    The veneer on my birch kit is an option available in SQ2 known as Vintage Onyx and after a close look when I first got them and took them outside under bright sunlight I saw the detail that is available with Alpi finishes. I was cool with the price point. The real wood finishes in SQ2 are...

    Traditional grip with left side cymbals

    Buddy Rich would often opt to strike the left side crash with his right hand or strike it with the left stick changed to matched grip if he was playing a big ff roll on both cymbals at the end of a chart.

    Show us that one cymbal you just couldn’t live without

    The cymbal that I would say I need to keep is my favorite ride: a Paiste Twenty series 21" "Ride" model. Love how it's such a versatile ride cymbal for different styles. the favorite I own isn't one I play on too often it's a 22" Swish.
