Square size power toms don't sound bad in the right hands:Then they hit 12x12 and this other dude comments in that this was the worst idea in drumming history, a 12x12 rack tom. That got me thinking what are the biggest mistakes and ideas drum companies have come up with in the history of drumming? What do you guys think?
While I agree on the over use of double bass, why blame the pedal itself for it's mis-use?i know some will lash out at me for this one, but personally i have to say double bass pedals take the cake for me. time and time again i see drummers who are just starting out,
buy a double pedal and run run run on it to see how fast they can get it to go, then quit playing by the time they are out of highschool because they figure out that they havent learned to play the drums, no stick control, no rudiments, they just learned to run.
and plus i think there are much more creative ways to make heart pounding metal then using a double bass.
That's like saying a car is a dumb invention because someone people drive them too fast, or hundred of other useful products that get abused beyond their original intention.
