    What George Martin Really Thought of Ringo's Drumming

    I understand this is a drums forum and there is a strong bias towards the importance of everything pertaining to drums when assessing success, quality and all that... Let me give you my songwriter's perspective: Technically, John, Paul and George's stellar songwriting made them all very...

    OT: if DISCO isn't something you care much for..

    Lots of instrumental groovy things, I've been hip to Herbie Mann in a cheeky kind of way for years (was made aware of him through some "cringiest album covers" type of list) but there is lots of really amazing stuff in there. Check this album, but also "Muscle Shoals nitty gritty" and "Memphis...

    The 117,995 snare drum

    From the movie's wiki entry: "Racism was not new to the western but it had never been articulated in such a sophisticated fashion."[16] Other scholars have labeled this as "perhaps the first film to openly proclaim the doctrine of White supremacy over Native American Indians".[17] Mr Bennett...

    The 117,995 snare drum

    Even if it was innocent... Do you really want to an object at this price that pretty much gives anybody a knee jerk reaction at best, or at worse, associate you with the ideology? I wouldn't. Although I know swasztikas have been around for thousands of years, the bad connotations are so deeply...

    The 117,995 snare drum

    OmG!!!! I just zoomed in on the snare pic in the article to see the decorations, now I understand why they're cropped the way they are in the ad.... Nope, nope and nope...

    The 117,995 snare drum

    Most folks play 2 and 4 95% of the time, it would be an insane cost per hit ratio... :lol: For the price, you could get about 250 brand new Acros, or 200 Supras or 60 Mapple Classic 3pce sets... Just to put things into perspective...

    Got my mits on lifelong dream mic...

    I have now 3 ribbons in my setup (the 77 and the two M160 overheads) the other two are dynamics. I'm extra carefull not to accidently hit that button. I tend to not like condensers that much in general, I don't use/plan to use any soon. My room is sort of too bright for them to really do what...

    Air Drummers How Many Toms?

    One thing I hate about those sticks is the weight inconsistencies, even in "matched" pairs... And make sure you individually roll em on the counter or other flat surfaces before leaving the shop: you'd be surprised to see how many aren't straight either!!

    Air Drummers How Many Toms?

    Watch out for those ugly air welds though... At the air price these go for, it's a real shame if you ask me. Post a pic here when you get them, I'm pretty sure that just a blank space with A&F in the title could still spark a 25 pages long bash-fest...

    OT - serious as a heart attack

    Even the non-Boomers... My dad died of a HA at 53, none of my uncles on his side made it past 65. One of my cousins, had a fatal one too, and he was barely 40. I even have a few friends who already had nearly fatal cardiac episodes in their 30's. A couple of em were substance related (booger...

    Air Drummers How Many Toms?

    Not exactly air drumming per-se but my car's steering wheel is probably out of round on account of all the rolls and fills I do when I'm caught in traffic... There might be a market for a steering wheel cover with triggers, could be managed by a phone app and sent to your stereo via blue tooth...

    Got my mits on lifelong dream mic...

    Oh thanks for the spec sheet, I won't have to look for it... Yeah I'm aware of the fact that they tend to prefer seeing a higher impedance and need loads of gain too... As of now I have a DRS-8 (8 sweet, sweet preamps by Phoenix Audio) on loan from my brother who owns a shnizzle-ton of...

    Air Drummers How Many Toms?

    My kit is ever changing, I can materialize toms, kicks or cymbals out of thin air to suit every groove, every fill... You just have to believe in yourself and just go for it, the drums WIL be there... At the instant the air sticks hit the heads, bam they're there, and then they disapear, and...

    Got my mits on lifelong dream mic...

    I just redone a vocal with it, this is just insanity. No pop filter, no comp, no eq, in a harsh room. It turns the drywall reflexions into a nice and pillowy room verb and my voice is instantly mix ready. Can't wait to hear it on the Rogers, I think it's best if I keep a clean set of underwears...
