    Re: Think we have a problem...

    I can't complain about her being in 3 other bands - I'm involved in 2 other projects myself. Most players around here are in several bands. One of her bands is a temporary fill in situation and...

    Re: Think we have a problem...

    We had a practice last night and there was no mention of the recordings of the Saturday gig , although the guitarist did suggest that we practice one song she did particularly poorly. She seemed a...

    Re: Hogging the Set List

    I am dealing with this issue as well in my band. From the beginning, we agreed that our setlist would be widely varied to maximize audience appeal as well as showcase the different vocalists (now 5)...

    Re: Think we have a problem...

    I definitely want to give her another chance. She plays with 3 other bands as well, so I figure if this really is a problem it would come up in those situations as well. I sent her and the rest of...

    Think we have a problem...

    So my new band just did its third gig Saturday, a backyard wedding party attended by 120 people. We went over well, the people kept us playing well past our 8PM original end time, and we played some...

    Re: Upgraded my bass pedals!

    I just sold my IC Jrs on eBay. With the shipping included, I came out a bit under what I paid for them, but I got several years use out of them and I can't justify keeping 2 double pedals. Gotta...

  8. Played an awesome 20 year old Gretsch kit!

    Last band rehearsal there was a different kit in the studio. My friend is helping his friend sell a Gretsch Renown kit that's at least 20 years old. 10, 12 rack toms, 14 hanging floor and 18 by 22...

    Re: Upgraded my bass pedals!

    Well, I had Iron Cobra Jrs, so it's definitely an upgrade for me. DW5000s and the top of the line Iron Cobras are more or less on the same level I would think.

    Upgraded my bass pedals!

    So my friend who owns the studio we rehearse and record in made me an offer I couldn't refuse. Although I wasn't in the market for another double bass pedal, I couldn't pass up the chance to upgrade...

    Re: Coated white heads

    I tried 3 different heads on my Black Brass snare, and couldn't get the sound I wanted. Finally I switched to a UV1 with a 200 reso. Now I like what I'm hearing!

    First gig with the new band, sort of.

    This past Saturday, my new band played its first gig. The few weeks leading up to the gig have been chaotic to say the least. We added a second guitarist a few months ago and he's only been able to...

    Sticky: Re: Drum Riser on the Cheap

    My smaller riser really doesn't add much time to the setup and breakdown. It's well worth it in terms of the look of the stage. I also realized another potential use for it. Some of the venues we...

    Re: Who makes quality single braced hardware?

    Check out the new RoadPro Light Series from Tama.. I just got a straight/boom cymbal stand and I'm very happy with it. I got a cymbal and a 12 inch rack to hanging on it and it's rock solid.

    Re: What's the best gig you've ever played?

    Back in 1981-82 my band opened for the British hardcore punk band, 999. They had a minor hit called "Homicide". We booked the gig with one phone call because the promoter somehow was under the...
  17. Re: Sugardaddys - Third gig report - this might be the last one.

    Bish,
    Your story sounds eerily familiar to mine. I was in a band with a husband and wife for 5 years as well. The wife was an awful singer, drank during gigs, forgot lyrics to songs she'd been...

    Update: I replaced the factory heads on the toms with clear G2s, and I love the sound I'm getting! They tuned up easily, without gels or any other kind of muffling. I also replaced the reso head on...

    I bought a Tama SLP Black Brass that came with a 42 strand wire. I couldn't get enough snare buzz out of it, even after changing heads twice and switching to 20 strand Puresound wires. I asked my...
