    Re: Grammy Awards

    That was Omar Hakim playing with Daft Punk and Stevie Wonder, and he killed it. Performance of the night, in my opinion. Not exactly sure what the Daft robots were adding behind that movie prop they...

    Re: Side Snares

    I like Emperor weight heads, and prefer the Crimplock version (for marching tenors) because they can take high pitches well. The Emperors have two plies, which damps some of the overtones without...

    Re: How many drumsticks do you own at a time

    I generally keep a dozen or so of each type I use. Always been a Vic guy, but recently fell in love with the Vater Fusion for most of my rock stuff. Still love the Vic Weckl, the SD1 and the Bolero....

    Re: Drum Heads

    Evans makes a head specifically for what you're looking for called the Black Chrome series. Clear ply over a black ply, very muted.

    Re: synthetic vs natural heads

    Natural heads are generally better, but I find they require a lot more care and feeding: detuning after your done playing, adjustments for humidity, more gentle bringing up to pitch (smaller wrench...

    Lessons early on are much more valuable than later. Think of it as a foundation you're building a house on. If you start with bad habits, they'll limit your growth and be harder to correct once...

    Re: and on to drum teacher #3

    Your new teacher reminds of Zappa-era Terry Bozzio. Not necessarily the notes, but the body movement, expression and phrenetic movement.

    Re: I Am Trying To Find The Right HEADPHONES For ME

    I've been a drummer for a long time, and I'm a bit of a headphone nerd so hopefully I can help! I generally prefer using IEMs when playing drums, but there are several OTE cans I can give advice on. ...

    Re: Coated or Clear heads

    Always liked coated, but recently switched to using Renaissance emperors on top, and LOVE them.

    Clear heads are a little too bright on toms for me. Always liked the warm, smooth tone of a coated...

    Re: Left hand wobble?

    Well, there's a lot to say here. First, you should work on consistent stroke, regardless of grip (French, German, Swiss/Basel, hybrid, etc). Slow the stroke and focus on quality of sound and...

    Re: The start of an experiment

    Try a Diplomat on the bottom. Should be as close to a snare side head as you'll find in 16".

    Name? Hmm. How about Sixteen Tons? Girthmother? Phatburger? SurdoSnare?
