    Somebody already may have said this but literally just drums that can easily fit into a taxi

    Carl Palmer and the 50 Worst Acts in Music History

    Blender shouldn’t exist anymore for making one of the 50 worst lists in history...I’d call that a hate crime.

    Help me think with my head, not just my heart.

    Unfortunately, for me it’s a no go. I would not buy it without having my hands on it. But if you want it, buy it. It’s not the cost or shipping time, it’s the possibility/risk of damage or loss and the hoops you have to jump through if things go south with the shipment. I’ve had issues in the...

    What Is Pocket?

    Also, I can’t think of a single drummer who keeps perfect time. The best drummer that we always reference actually have the ability to slowly speed up and slow down when it is appropriate.

    What did Max Roach do?

    A huge huge part of understanding and learning just about anything is history and context. Imagine what it was like to watch or hear Max Roach during that time. It’s complex, but some things to consider: the first thing I’m going to say because it’s the most important thing is always civil...

    Virgin/undrilled drums vs drums with mount hole/extra holes

    Yeah he could be lying but he knows ribbons are extremely fragile. You can bust them just walking with the uncovered mic in your hand, the windspeed from walking can tear it, lol. It’s crazy.

    Virgin/undrilled drums vs drums with mount hole/extra holes

    In all seriousness, air ports allow air and sound to escape so take that into consideration and make your best guess as to how to incorporate it into your playing. I would mic up the hole on the side of a drum. Might need a pop filter if you get real in it. I’d also put my ear near the holes to...

    Virgin/undrilled drums vs drums with mount hole/extra holes

    One thing you can do is actually unscrew the bass drum hardware and test...oh never mind.

    Help me decide on 3-ply or 6-ply! 20 or 22

    Thanks everybody! I bought the Gretsch shells. Really enjoyed the feedback. I'm sure I will be back with more questions!

    Help me decide on 3-ply or 6-ply! 20 or 22

    noted, although apparently slingerland didn't make shells without reinforcement rings until 1972. Thanks a lot, that's quite helpful. I'd be using the drums for, well, everything to be honest. Which is why I'd like something with a versatile tuning range. I wouldn't be using any vintage...

    Help me decide on 3-ply or 6-ply! 20 or 22

    Hi y'all, so I'm torn between a few things here. I want to buy a kit that I don't get rid of. I'm torn between a 60's 3 ply slingerland in 20/13/16 or a 6-ply 70's gretsch for sale here. They're both roughly the same price, but I can't decide. Since I like to play a lot of different music and...
