    Re: superhuman bass drums

    I agree.....I have 24" bass drums and they are a bit big. I prefer 22's---Much better action!

    Re: My China cracked after not even a month!

    I've been playing 33 years and never broke one either and I've been playing metal most of that time! A defective cymbal is a defective cymbal though and I guess it does happen. I have a friend that...

    Re: buying a china cymbal.. Any suggestions?

    I've got a Wuhan china that's held up great for the past two years. For the price, they're hard to beat. Good sound and no cracks yet.

    Re: Drum Riser

    I used wooden palets for the bottom and 3/4" plywood on the top. Screw the top down and lay down some carpet. SUPER EASY AND SUPER STURDY. Note: THIS IS PERMINANT.

    Re: Taping your sticks pre-emptively

    I can't stand the feel of my stix with tape on them. I tend to rim shot the heck out of my snare and the sticks start splitting in the middle but I can usually get 2-3 gigs out of a pair.
  10. Re: Do you find drums strengthen your body? Or weaken it?

    I'm 43 and still playing heavy metal. There was a time that it would not bother me to play a 4 hour gig. Now it takes me a day of so to come back to normal....GETTING OLD SUCKS!

    Re: how long

    I stopped playing due to carpel tunnel for 10 years. It took about 6 months to get it all back once I got the operation.

    Re: Double pedal vs double bass

    Double bass kits look cooler! Also, if you hit both drums at the same time it sounds VERY powerful with two bass drums---Try that with a double pedal and it will totally kill the sound of your bass....

    I had a set 6/8/10 and liked the sound. Much cheaper than a set of octabons but they also look a lot cheaper.

    Re: zijlian sticks?

    I LOVE the feel of Zildjian stix. The problem I have with them is that they splinter-EVERY TIME. I always go back to pro-mark or Vic Firth.

    I wear protection more often now. Just like the guy who's flossing his teeth now after half of them are gone! I should have worn them much more. I'm 43 and I have to sleep with a fan on just to cover...

    Re: Smallest car ?

    I used to carry a double bass (24") 10/12/13/14 toms and a 16" floor with all hardware and snare drum in a 1995 Toyota Corolla. I can get all of the above plus my 18" floor tom in my Nissan Maxima!...

    I started on an OLD Ludwig jazz kit that my parents bought from a lady whos husband died. These were REALLY OLD WFLs with nickel lugs and rims (not the nice chrome stuff).
