I've been hearing 'tubs' since I started playing 56 years ago. Didn't hear 'pies' til much later. I don't care what words someone uses as long as I know what they meant.

I heard the term "tubs" in the mid '60s. Didn't like it then, don't like it now. I first read the term "pies" on this forum, but I never use it.

Not offended by the words but I don't use them,  tubs doesn't bother me as much as pies, not sure why.   I do cal the bass drum "kick" though as its much easier when dealing with soundmen.   I use Rack Tom and Floor Tom, not Ride tom. I say Cross-stick and not Side Stick or refer to it as xstick (got that from Tommy I think)

I do not particularly like "tubs" and "pies" and none of the jazz guys I've played with have ever used the terms. Then again one of the older jazz drummers I know still refers to high hats as "sock cymbals," which I do not mind.

 

My conventional descriptions include drum set-I do not like drum "kit"; bass drum- I dislike "kick" drum; and tom toms-I dislike "rack" or "ride" toms. If I hang out with Donald too much, I find myself referring to sock cymbals, too.

 

I don't mind so much what others use to describe drums and drumming accessories unless it just sounds to affected. Keep it real.

I always considered using the term 'tubs' as a term of endearment for an old set you just fell in love with...

I can live with pies, as that makes cymbals sound tasty, but "tubs" will never sound as cool as "axe"! On second thought I've never made love on an axe..... :laughing6:

Drums have been called tubs for ages, same with axe, which one uses when referring to ones instrument, not just guitar. Some people still use those words ... so what!

Kick I get... Not so much because you play with your foot, but because there's already a mixer strip with bass scribbled on it.
