  1. Sticky: Re: Post Your Bird's-Eye View/Driver's Seat Kit Pics!!

    Yup, I saw your thread on new wraps and commented on it. Your kit looked great!

    I'm considering new wraps. This kit is my extra kit that I wouldn't use for gigs but would of course reconsider...
  2. Sticky: Re: Post Your Bird's-Eye View/Driver's Seat Kit Pics!!

    I found it actually a little challenging since those drums are traditional in size therefore they are quite deep. But yes, love when drums have that clean mounting!

    Re: Sound Off

    Nothing will actually replace the sound of a beautiful kit with new heads without the sound offs..Of course in an ideal situation playing the kit in its ideal manner is best but at times we don't all...

    Sound Off

    Just placed as much Sound Off stuff I could find with my extra kit. The sound is reduced substantially but it maintains some sound (even improves rebound). It's exceptionally good if the volume is an...

    Re: Crash / Ride

    I would only use a crash-ride cymbal if that was the only cymbal (other than the hats) that I had setup.

    Re: Motivation

    Try changing your drum kit setup. Go super simple - hats, ride, bass, snare.

    Re: Ride or not to Ride thread - Revisited

    Well I guess if you look at it that way, then sure go ahead. Play a gig or record tracks without cymbals, it can be done.

    Re: What inspired you to get into drumming?

    When I saw the Metallica video for the song "One", that clinched it for me.

    Of course many other drummers and songs continued my inspiration but it really started there!

    That's true that not all drummers play jazz but of course rides can be intended for all other styles of percussion/drums. I just found it amazing that many players really considered not even having...

    Rides were really intended for jazz music...Once again another reason for all drummers to have and play with a ride.

    100% exactly why everyone should have and use a ride.

    Re: Ride or not to Ride thread - Revisited

    I have to say that I'm against a hihat on the right side (for right handed players) unless it's an extra hihat auxiliary.

    What i'm practicing is using my left hand as more of the lead hand on the...

    Excellent example! It really cuts through. I wonder what ride the drummer used.

    Re: Ride or not to Ride thread - Revisited

    That's just it. Most players play crossed on the hats. The advantage of playing the ride is your playing open handed (no crossing) and opens the possibilities of toms and other cymbals from both...

    Exactly, could u imagine having 3 crashes without a ride to complement? Play that bell and throw in some crash accents!

    I'm trying to mix it up and go ride during the verse and a solid hihat during the chorus. Give it a try you will be surprised how sweet a song sounds

    Listen to how sweet the ride sounds during the guitar solo in Eric Clapton's "cocaine". Absolutely drives the song!

    Re: To Ride or Not to Ride?

    I honestly can't believe some of you don't want to use a ride in your drumming or drum kit. IT'S EMBARRASSING!!

    I know there are no hard and fast rules to drum kit setups or use of cymbals/drums....
  24. Sticky: Re: Post Your Bird's-Eye View/Driver's Seat Kit Pics!!

    The best thing about your kit is your B8 splash! Look at the cymbals you have - that B8 splash sticks out! Good for you for keeping it alive.
