    Re: Tuning the snare drum- newbe question.

    Be bop jazz tends to tune everything higher than, say, Big Band. Also, if you plan to do a lot of playing on the snare with the snares off to give you another tom voice (especially if you have a four...

    Re: How to practice the Stick Control book

    I will add that one should play at varying dynamics. One time play mf, the next time play pp, the next time ff. You need all the dynamics at your command.

    Re: Snare--Heads / Brushes

    I should have mentioned that a working drummer will have more than one set of brushes, to accommodate different playing situations.

    Re: Snare--Heads / Brushes

    I like Aquarian texture coated as it's pretty durable.

    Brushes have different materials and different gauges of materials. Mainly there are wire and nylon. Past that there are different...

    Re: Gator drum bags

    I use Drum Seeker for my toms and snares, and a Tuxedo for the bass--mainly because the Drum Seeker bass bag is pretty darn heavy

    Re: Protective Drum Bags

    Agree--I really like my Drum Seekers. But I will say I just bought one to replace my Tuxedo bass bag and when it came it was way heavier than I'd imagined. I sent it back for another Tuxedo, (because...

    Re: Top ten rudiments

    I really like the paradiddle-diddle for the kit. When you move around to the different drums and surfaces, it sounds pretty cool.

    Re: rudiments

    If you get tired of practicing rudiments, try getting a book that makes you use them in different ways. It takes away some of the boredom. Like Joe Morello's Master Studies.

    Also, a kind of fun...

    Re: How to practice the Stick Control book

    This is dumb in so many ways, but I call BS on it, as I know damn well that you understand the difference between warming up and developing drumming skills.

    Re: Decent Jazz ride?

    I searched for four years for the "perfect" ride, which had to be good for jazz. I ended up with the Zildjan K Hybrid 20". It's got a controlled stick sound, a great bell sound, and is very...

    Re: Kick drums: To pillow, or not to pillow?

    I use the Aquarian Superkick 1 and the Aquarian Regulator for playing a wide range of music in a couple of community bands indoors and out, and that gives me just a little resonance which is exactly...
  15. Re: If you could only have ONE cymbal which one?

    This is absolutely true. You can crash it and ride it. it's biggest weakness is that when doing soft mallet rolls it doesn't really speak well at dynamics of mp or below, but it's fine from mf and...
  16. Re: Who makes quality single braced hardware?

    I was at Sam Ash again, looking at the DW's, and a local, older bop drummer said he has them and loves them. They fit into one bag and probably weigh the same as my hi hat. I would have to really sit...
