    Oh, how BORING! A thread on Drum Thrones??? Now with POLL

    I have a SoundSeat on a dw base. Comfortable and solid.

    In the Market for a new drum throne

    Agreed. I have a Soundseat on a dw base. Can play for hours with no back or leg pain, fatigue, or sore ass.

    Tom lug mount Inde vs Atlas?

    I have the INDe on my 13 Legacy maple tom. It resonates far more than either a rims type mount or the snare stand I had been using. Easy to install and a nicer look, however the key is that the tom SOUNDS better.

    OT (sort of) - Tinnitus

    Have it as well, and it sucks. I have an appointment next week at the UCSF tinnitus clinic to see if any treatments exist that can improve things since there is no cure. At times I think the constant hissing is going to drive me nuts.

    I think I have a problem... But is it really that bad?

    I have a 3200 sq ft house with a two car garage and a storage shed. I still only have one kit (four drums), hardware and cymbals. Worked for me for 52 years of drumming. No need for me to clutter things up.

    Bass Drum Mic -- again

    It's a 22x16 Lud Legacy maple with a ported reso head. Looking for vintage-y thump. Play pretty varied styles of music. Rock, blues, country, folk, Basic cover band stuff. I use sennheiser 604's on my snare/toms.

    Bass Drum Mic -- again

    Hi All, is there any consensus as to the "best" (if there is such a thing) mic for a BD for live shows? I have been using an old Shure but was hoping to find another good sounding mic that is less bulky to mount onto my hoop with a goose neck holder. The Shure is way too heavy.

    Very ignorant mic set up question

    Sorry if this is a real stupid question, but I have little experience with live micing (other than sound guys doing it). I have mics for my snare, toms and bd that typically all run into whatever PA/mixer stuff is around. My question: is there a small device/mixer/box that I can plug this stuff...

    What music styles, genres etc. do you or will you not play?

    Disco. Hated it in the 70's and still do.

    Tama Star Snare Stand

    The offset is why I sold my dw 9000 series snare stand and picked up the Tama star stand. No issues at all. Really solid well designed stand.
