    Re: Went to Gearfest!

    If you're that close, you gotta go! It's a big campus now and they have concerts in their auditorium. They are adding another 350,000 square feet next year.

    Went to Gearfest!

    This past weekend, I attended Gearfest to help my friend at his company's booth. It was my first time and it was really cool. There were huge tents filled with the best gear from all the great...

    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...

    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...

    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.

  22. 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...
