    Re: New funk band with horns - Superstition

    One more video for now. Sorry I'm not as active on the forum as I'd like these days, but this funk thing and marching band arranging are keeping me as busy as I can handle. Sadly, we must take 6...

    I really appreciate the kind words gentlemen. Thanks! Here are a couple more. I realize there are still some balance problems and the backup mics in "Get Down On It" are way too low, but these are...

    I have tried everything mentioned here (except a felt strip) over the years and have settled on a system that works almost all the time for me. A Powerstroke 3 batter head, ported single ply reso...

    We also re-recorded Superstition to see if it got any better.

    Re: New funk band with horns - Superstition

    Thanks for the kind words everyone, and also the criticism. It's welcome at this point and I've taken it to heart.

  7. $1600 for signed Tool drumheads...seriously?

    My coworker just went to see Tool last night. She told me at the merchandise booth, they had signed drumheads for $1600. I'm thinking - "that's ridiculous, who would pay that for a set of signed...

    Re: Favorite Snare Throw-Offs

    I love my COB Gretsch drum, but it's really warped and the snare bed looks like they formed it with a hammer. I think it still sounds great, but it's really hard to tune.

    New funk band with horns - Superstition

    I started a funk band with a bunch of my ex-students that are all half my age. Here's our third run though of Superstition at our first practice. I think this has some promise. There are some obvious...

    Re: Ask a teacher anything here

    From what I've heard, it's a massive conspiracy to keep left handed drummers off balance so they will just quit and not keep setting up their kits backwards. :)

    I'm actually embarrassed to admit...

    Re: Favorite Snare Throw-Offs

    Sorry - I missed this question until now. When I bought the drum, it had a thick white cord, which I left in place. I normally like any kind of strap better so I don't dig a furrow in the snare bed.

    Re: Absolutes: why are the finishes so limited?

    I have owned several Yamaha kits, and while I love the sound, my biggest complaint is that they limit the finish selection on all but their super high end (expensive) kits. The PHX has some killer...

    Re: First 2 notes on Beatles "Come Together"?

    I used to always play a sextuplet on the snare rim over the top of those 2 bass drum notes. With my currently band, we kind of reproduce that sound vocally over the mics.
