    Re: Playing fo a Charity event fund raiser?

    I agree. The way I see it, if it's a decent charity, they need all the $$ they can get. If it's a charity worth being involved with, it's worth doing for free or minimum pay. If they pay bands normal...
  2. Re: Rearranged drum room to spark some motivation

    A friend of mine who passed away a couple years ago had a band. Their practice space was an old pole barn on his farm. He had a wood burning stove for heat. 4 or 5 hours before practice, he would go...

    Re: Any suggestions on a lightweight throne?

    ^^^^^ At least that would give me an excuse when people realize my drumming stinks. Plus, they look lighter weight than my Gibraltar 9600!

    Sticky: Re: Ludwig Drums Discussion

    If anyone has their eye on the Centennial "Zep" kit (14/16/18/26), I would suggest buying one ASAP. They are almost always on sale now. It would be a steal.

    Thanks, Rich!
    Your spot-on. It's hard to see in my pic, but I have the arch mounted between the top two lugs (11 o'clock and 1 o'clock). I slid the rail in from the front side of the drum....

    Not sure what your budget allows, but you could check out one of those accordion style room divider curtains. They hang from a track on the ceiling. That would allow you to divide off the practice...

    Re: Kickport with or without pillow.

    Yep, I'd say whatever sounds better. The real question is what "sounds better" for the situation. If it's just you sitting behind the kit, then do what your ears tell you. If you are putting a mic on...

    Re: Just joined a 2nd band

    I agree w/Dangermoney. One band must take priority to make it fair. The lead guitar player in my band is a good friend, but he operates his own band as well. It's understood that if his own band is...

    Re: Swapped to Die Cast hoops

    Awesome. Definitely makes a difference. Really depends on the sound you're after, but I personally like it. My ONLY complaint of die cast hoops is the cost. Since my snares (13x7 Pie and 14x8 Supra)...

    I agree....but I must say, I'm blown away by the "total package" of sound I get out of the hybrid Zildjian 13" A/Z

    We played 9:30pm to 1:30am New Years Eve, then go home and sleep, get up and played again from 2pm to 6pm on New Years Day. The worst part was the -17F temp on New Years Eve. I was pretty much dead...

    Re: preferred placement ?

    You can always spot an OCD drummer. The head logos are always lined up, and between songs they're always rotating their cymbals so the logos are facing them.

    Great job. I respect that you guys put on the show without the lead singer and did what you had to do. I think it's imperative for a band's success that they be able to adapt. It can be stressful...

    I guess it really depends on the song and style they want you to do. Jazz stuff, then yes, brushes would be great. If it's all acoustic Blues/Folk/Rock, I'd probably just keep a small Cajon, bongos...
