    Re: Greatest Drummer of All Time?

    I always find these discussions fascinating as it's always a fairly circular debate with no resolution and no real way of getting to one. And that's fine. The issues with identifying the greatest...

    Re: Trying to decide on a new throne

    I use the Ahead Spinal G and love it. It is by far the most comfortable throne I've ever perched upon.

    Re: Small Crashes Anyone?

    Horses for courses. I prefer 'glassy' sounding cymbals that open quickly and decay quickly, too. Consequently, I currently use Sabian's AAXplosion range for crashes and have 14, 16 and 18" versions...

    Re: Teaser photo.. Olive wood Stave Snare

    You tune it. With the lugs. Like any other drum. Then you'd benefit from the ability of being able to modify tuning on the fly and change heads quickly if required. It's really not that difficult.

    Re: Teaser photo.. Olive wood Stave Snare

    Indeed! I think the visual aesthetic of the lugs may split opinion but I like the industrial look of them and think the ability to quickly re-retune/re-head a drum in seconds is very enticing.

    Re: Teaser photo.. Olive wood Stave Snare

    Fascinating looking stuff going on with this company . I came across this video on MANIC's website which demonstrates the lugs in combination with their own hoop - quick tuning on the fly as well as...

    Re: Even Flow -Pearl Jam cover

    Love a bit of Pearl Jam particularly the album this track is from. You and your band did a great job!
  10. Re: What are your favorite mic holders for snare and toms?

    I think the general consesus for live situations is they are very similar sounding and the vast majority won't pick up any discernable difference. That said, the e604's were specifically designed for...
  11. Re: What are your favorite mic holders for snare and toms?

    Yep, that's one of the reasons I really like these mic's. They do a great job, are sturdy, well made and stay out of the way of my flaying sticks. They are a pretty good all purpse mic and are often...
  12. Re: What are your favorite mic holders for snare and toms?

    I use Sennheiser e604's for live snare and tom duties. They come with their own rim mount.

    Re: Deen Castronovo

    I had absolutely no idea he could sing but that voice is outstanding! Close your eyes and it is just perfect for that song. Open them and find your jaw dropping to the floor as you realise he's also...
  14. Re: New birthday treat for me....hi hat stand

    I've heard very good things about those hi-hat stands. I currently use a very solid Mapex Janus (not the ergo or transmission variants) which has served me well. However, I'm starting to consider a...

    Re: Ahead Spinal G throne WOW!

    I've used this throne for years; on to my second now. I love how comfortable they are. However, my first throne failed as the bracket attached to the seat broke. I bought a new seat to use with the...

  17. Re: Use of having a crash-ride cymbal and a ride cymbal?

    There is no firm answer anyone can give to this. It simply depends on what you like and how you play. There are some drummers who use ride cymbals only and have no crashes. There are others who have...

  19. Re: Smaller Tom sounding deeper than bigger Tom

    Do not underestimate the impact of the resonator (bottom head) on the overall tone/pitch of the drum. It is quite possible to tune the batter (top) head to a pitch but for this to change...

    Re: My unpopular opinion of Ozone crashes

    To me they ozones and chinas are different things. However, I do find ozones to be more versatile if one were to have to choose between the two. I have a Sabian AAX 18" ozone which I love! Great as...

    Re: Can a snare stand affect sound?

    Snare sound can vary significantly depending on how firm the basket is tightened to grip the snare. The tighter it is, the more the drum will be restricted in its sound. Other than that, there may be...
