    Re: Vater vs VicFirth

    I use vater because they are the most durable wooden sticks I have come across.

    Jump into a band straight away man.
    Your drumming will improve much faster than you think and you'll be having fun doing it.

    Re: Few things

    I'm not overly happy with my Evans EC Reverse Dot snare head.
    It's unbreakable, but it provides too much muffling in my opinion. If you want your snare to have a nice, healthy ring I'd try something...

    Re: Bass drum w/o muffling?!?

    My specialized drum head is a stock head with a large, fluffy, penguin toy stuffed in the drum. Works a treat.

    Re: Is this normal or am I being hazed?

    That sucks.. What if the other guy didn't want you to use his drums? I wouldn't let someone I've never seen play behind my kit. It is good etiquette to provide your own snare and cymbals (and...

    Re: how big a hole

    I always go for about a 4" hole. You can fit a big mic in there, and it's not so big that it kills the sound, although it does alter it a lot.

    Well I picked up a couple of pairs of Vater 5bn's yesterday and got through rehearsal (about 2 hours of drumming) with no problems at all.

    Get the best you can afford.
    If you trust your drum teacher, I'd listen to him. He sees you drum in person and would be the most qualified to give advice.

    Shields are very good if you don't want the sound of your drums to be picked up by other microphones on a stage and to keep the general volume down for the the other musos. It also gives a sound guy...

    Re: bass pedal tilts so far back

    Yeah, it's all in the spring adjustment.

    If you can't get the pedal loose enough, you could try replacing the spring with a longer one before you go out and buy a new pedal.
