    Re: My Natal Cafe Racer

    I'm very happy with the one kit I have, but you guys and your gorgeous kits always make me wish I had room for more.

    Re: playing with tracks

    I'll have to check out Drumtrax too, sounds interesting.

    Speaking of drumless tracks, what other sources are people's favorites? I tend to lean most heavily on the Turn It Up & Lay It Down...

    Re: Craiglist Tom Angles enjoyment.

    I guess this falls under "if it works, don't knock it". I've never seen this before.

    Re: Facebook swap shops are the worst

    Yeah, there's a lot of folks who don't look or read, or want to give you 25 cents on the dollar. The other side of the coin are the occasional CL ads that have no pics, no description, and say "Drum...

    Re: Holding opposite side of drum stick

    Had some like that. I believe they were called "rock knockers" or some such thing.

    Thumbs up for the Sand Ride. Just picked one up used with no flaws, only a heavy patina. Great bell, very nice stick, crashable, and I can build a big wash if I want. It instantly went to the top of...

    Exactly my feeling. I allowed an unpleasant situation to push me away from drumming. Then school, marriage, kids and career kept me occupied. I wouldn't trade those things away for the world, but I...

    Re: Most "fun" drum book you have?

    Right now I'm having a ton of fun with Jim Riley's Survival Guide For The Modern Drummer . Broad range of styles for play-along, and the songs are full length, not the ultra short examples you get...

    What's your story? How did you make the jump from playing for fun to playing for fun AND money? Did your neighbor own a bar and ask you to play? Were you "discovered" by a producer who drove by while...

    I've given it several days now, and it's not growing on me. I don't contribute much, but this is much harder to read. Just my two cents.

    Started out with A-Custom 14s, way too bright for me. Moved to New Beat 14s, much better chick and closed, but still too bright slosh and open. Now I've got an A-Custom 16 on the bottom with a Dream...

    Re: alternative to pricey stick wrap?

    I'll second that. I dip twice for a thicker layer. Following the directions is important for this stuff, and make sure your sticks are clean. Skin oils will really degrade the results.

    Re: Hearing Protection?

    Trying this again, my first try never appeared. I prefer much the same setup, 3 mics run through a mixer to some Shure SE215 in-ear plugs. A pair of muffs over the Shures gives me good isolation so I...
