    Like I've said in a past post somewhere: The large basically horizontally head oriented toms to the side of my kit have never been sitting on the floor. they were either on legs to the floor, held by...

    Re: Afraid of learning Heel Up

    Like Tom said: if heel up is causing you pain, you are probably sitting too close or too far from your bass drum. It may be that you're unconsciously adding a forward kick motion/movement to the...

    Re: which should I get and why?

    I personally would not own anything by Mapex. That's just me because I've simply never come across any Mapex products that weren't junk. That may be a coincidence and is not meant to impune anyone...

  6. Re: Playing a Crashable Ride (or a Rideable Crash)

    I look at "crash/rides" as a compromise...and as with most compromises..."sport-touring bikes", "on/off road vehicles", etc, etc, they are not particularly good at either of their classifications due...

    Re: Snare with Claw Hooks / Rim Shots

    If you are accurate enough to execute a rimshot you should easily be accurate enough to miss the claw hooks 99.999999999% of the time.

    Re: DW Lug Hardware Numbers?

    I'll take a wild stab at the numbers. My guess is most lugs are "MIM" or "metal injection molding". I had a career in plastic injection molding and those might be cavity designations in the mold they...

    Re: Your Drumming Skills Level

    Man, it kind of depends. Right now I'm pretty average at best. 5 or 6. Summer and winter before last I had some guys coming over at least once, sometimes three times a week and we'd play 3 to 4 hours...

    It really comes down to having a "palatte" of cymbals to meet the need depending on mic/no mic, room, PA and music and instrumentation etc, etc. Smaller cymbals may have a nice envelope but can get...

    I wonder if some type of heat treatment might help preserve the integrity of the weld. It seems traditional heat treatment to harden may cause brittleness and a quick demise. I wonder if something...

    Re: Looking at upgrading double pedals
