    Nightmare room Saturday night

    Played a gig in a new room and, as I am responsible for sound, it was a nightmare for me. I knew the room would be a challenge after seeing it for the first time the week before. It's a big open...

    Re: Opinions on my first drum set?

    I would definitely explore used. It's a buyer's market and you can usually get good gear in great condition for about half of what it would cost new. A good set of cymbals often costs more than the...

    Re: Stage Drum Mixer

    I have a Behringer XR18, which my band uses when we play a gig where we have to provide the PA. It has enough channels to mic my drums, the other instruments and 4 vocalists. In my previous band we...

    Re: Hi-Hat Cymbals For Jazz

    I agree with EM. Zildjian New Beats are the most recorded hi hats for a reason. They sound great and work well for most types of music. As a novice drummer, you want to keep your options open to...

    Re: Looking for an intermediate snare drum

    I got that same snare after the glowing reviews by members of this forum and everywhere else. It's a great deal even at retail and if you find one used in mint condition like I did, it's an absolute...

    Zildjian K Custom Dark hats

    I just acquired a set of these in great used condition. I've recently been assembling a set of K Customs, and these will sound great along with the 15" and 16" K Custom Dark crashes I have. Next up...

    Re: Harmonies make or break cover bands

    I agree that vocals in general are the differentiator among cover bands and even fewer have the ability to master multi-part harmonies. It's easy to find 4 or 5 guys who can play an instrument well...

    Re: Camco pedal

    I have the old Camco pedal from 1980 - still use it on my kit in our rehearsal room. In all those years I think all I've ever had to do for maintenance is replace the spring once.

    In all the time I've used the risers, I've never once had a problem with vibration, and I always felt completely stable while playing on it. The smaller one fits easily in my car along with all my...

    Re: How Many Bands Do You Play In?

    I'm in 2 bands. Started out in one after a 30 year hiatus from playing. Then my band from the 80's decided to reunite, so I couldn't refuse. Each band currently plays about once a month so it's...
  15. Great double gig weekend but one casualty!

    So this past weekend my 80's band played a late gig Friday night and an 8:30 hit Saturday. We normally like to space gigs out as we're building a following but the Saturday gig dropped on us a few...

    Success is rarely if ever a result of talent alone. Luck, timing, sheer determination and hard work all play a bigger role. One thing for sure is success will NEVER come to someone who sits and...

    Re: Others successes

    Many iconic bands were not proficient at their instruments when they started out. U2 is another example. The real talent lies in writing music. Being a creator is a rare gift; anyone can pick up...

    Re: Building a Drum Room

    This is very inspiring Zack. My drum cave isn't nearly as big and it's not 100% dry all the time, but I'd love to finish it like you are doing.

    Just think of all the new space you'll have dedicated to drums when your project is done. It would be a crime not to fill it with shiny new gear!

  24. Re: Raffles for likes? Need opinions please.

    I am in 2 different bands. Both have members in their 50s(in fact 3 of us are in both bands), and the talent level is roughly the same. That is where the similarities end. One band plays a variety...
