    Re: Play too loud??

    Maybe when your band members say you are playing too loud, they actually mean you are playing too much. Maybe they want more groove, more space. If this is correct, then take some stuff out of what...
  2. Re: Technique - Foot and Hand Coordination

    Four things that I do when I am practicing that might help you (but only with lots of practice).

    1. Reverse your hands, so that your feet are doing what ever patterns you have been practicing but...

    Re: Bought Yamaha dtxtreme II used.

    I bought a DTXtreme III about 8 years ago and had these kind of problems almost from the start. They have not got worse, in spite of 8 years of hammering! Guess that is eKits for you. Love 'em for...
  4. Re: Which to begin with, electronic drums or standard drum sets?

    How many of you guys are gigging with an eKit, as opposed to just using one for practice? Good amplification must be an issue, unless you have tons of cash or the venue has what you need.

    As most...

    Sticky: Re: Zildjian Cymbals

    I have an 18" K Dark Medium Thin, if that helps. It is not my favourite cymbal (I much prefer an Instanbul Agop 18" crash that I have), but the K works well in certain settings such as a Concert Wind...

    Re: Cheating?

    If it helps, I'm a rightie and (surprise surprise) pretty happy with my right arm, wrist and finger control. Everything happens quite smoothly and the tip of the stick travels in a predictable arc...

    Re: Kick Pedal Bounce

    Funkyruss, I have an Evans EQ3 ported reso. I put it on a few months ago and, as expected, it certainly did help.
    Am thinking I am going to take look at some DW pedals when next in London (island of...

    Re: Kick Pedal Bounce

    Oh yeah, and (cos I didn't really answer your question about beaters) I have not tried other beaters. Mine is a firm felt (comes standard with Iron Cobra). I could change it. Recommendations? Wood?...

    Re: Kick Pedal Bounce

    Hi Itchie, I can control the bounce until I start to push things speed-wise, especially on fast doubles - quick samba grooves that kind of thing. Of course if my technique were better (I am working...

    Re: Kick Pedal Bounce

    Hmmm. So many choices. I've played plenty of kits (and hardware) but never Ludwig (though I know they are beautiful).
    So, Speed King, DW 9000... this is a good list to start with.

    Re: Kick Pedal Bounce

    Thanks Top Dog. I should take a look at the DW. It does not come cheap but it gets rave reviews. Too late for an XMas present? For myself! The Tama Cobra Power Glide I use also gets good reviews so...

    Kick Pedal Bounce

    Hey - has anyone out there done any kind of comparison between the various Kick Pedals to see if some are more prone to beater bounce than others. I understand about use of good technique, head...
