    Re: Anyone competing in GC DrumOff?

    Nearest GC is 2.5 hours from here. I'm not good enough to do such a thing, tho I'd be interested in watching some of it.

    Turns out a young guy who plays in bands around here just posted on...

    Re: Broken arm

    Seconding this!

    Years ago, I dislocated my shoulder. Had to have the arm in a sling, no activity, blah blah blah.

    After about two weeks, I took the foolish sling off and started playing drums...

    Re: Stress and drumming

    Agreed!

    If I'm stressed or in a bad mood, I get behind the practice e-kit, turn up something really loud in the headphones, and fire away, usually adding more fills than I ever would playing it...

    Re: Bozzio Kit

    Exactly how long does it take to assemble a beast like that?

    3 hours, with a crew? 4? 6?

    Amazing to look at. I don't know what I would do, sitting behind it. He is amazing, certainly.....

    Re: What size kit do you prefer to play?

    I go 2 up, 1 down currently, 12", 13", 16", 22". I have a 14" that I don't use, mostly due to size restraints.... I'd rather have the space for cymbal stands versus the tom stand. If I ever convert...

    Re: Good posture behind the drums

    EyePea, do you have a website (or can recommend one) that illustrates those positions? I'm having a particularly difficult time envisioning the "snare at a click or two lower than 90 degrees"...
  8. Re: How to keep hardware from getting trashed

    I use a 48" SKB case, affectionately (or not so affectionately at loud out) known in our band as "the coffin" :icon_lol:

    It's big. (Fits across the back seat in my sedan tho...) It's heavy, but...

    Re: Mounting a China

    I like my aquarian spring, but I haven't used it long enough to notice any ill effects on the china. I will definitely watch for it.
  11. Re: And this is why you should never play a gig for free.

    Works both ways....

    I gave up playing in my twenties, for the career and family. Picked it back up after the kids were grown, in my late 40's.

    Wish I had never stopped. Wish I had found a way...

    Re: Hot Rod Sticks

    I have a pair, for just that reason....gig's where you need to keep the volume down. My biggest issue with them is the sound I get from my snare, and from my ride cymbal. My snare sounds like an...
  13. Re: And this is why you should never play a gig for free.

    We play in most any of the benefit gigs that ask, so long as they are local and are backlined. If all we need to do is drop in, play a set, and then get to rub elbows with other musicians and shoot...

    Re: What's On Your Feet When You Play?

    Sneakers. All-white (boring, my kids say) Nike's are what I usually buy.

    If I'm doing a dressier gig, I wear my all-black Nike's that I wear to work.

    Re: Another newbie gettting educated

    Another thing to consider, don't go selling off cymbals as you replace them, at least not all of them...if you can afford to hang onto a couple that you like currently. Sometimes you might find that...

    Re: Simple Tip or Trick - Add yours

    The only issue with doing that for my floor tom is the legs are long enough that they stick up higher than the top of the drum. It will still probably fit inside the soft case that I use, but I'm...

    Interesting thread.

    I may not play as much, or as loudly as others here, but I've never had a tip come off a stick before. As someone else mentioned, I do chew up the sides a bit :icon_mrgreen:...
