    Radio King snare acquisition & advice

    I like Johnson's paste wax, its my go too for quick wax jobs on wood. It does smell when applied but wears off fairly quickly. I also use it to coat all my cast iron tools after i have cleaned them.

    Is Metallica’s “Orion” the Best Instrumental Released Since 1986?

    Little Wing, SRV, wasn’t studio released till The sky is crying album. That’s my vote.

    New on Netflix: "Count Me In" Drummer Documentary

    Lol. It’s a great discussion, one we should have. My point is it deserves its own thread, it was on a different set of rails then the topic of the movie itself. Maybe I need to revise my understanding of off the rails. Lol.

    Seriously?

    Matched Gripper’s point, With heads and hoops on, it is pretty difficult to damage the bearing edge, essentially the edges have a steel protection halo when heads and hoops are installed. It would take a very unusual set of circumstances to damage the edge like that with what looks like no other...

    New on Netflix: "Count Me In" Drummer Documentary

    To be fair, My interpretation of the off the rails comments is that their was a potential at one point the thread could quickly move away from the topic of the movie itself, and turn into a discussion/debate about women's inclusion/exclusion in drumming/drum history, etc., and while that is an...

    New on Netflix: "Count Me In" Drummer Documentary

    I agree. This is not intended to be a history, or documentary on any particular genre of drumming. If we can just appreciate it as interviews and discussions to a fairly random and representative group of drummers about what it is about drumming they love, how they got into it, what it means...

    New on Netflix: "Count Me In" Drummer Documentary

    Just watched it and I think they did a good job making it interesting to drummers and non drummers alike. Enthusiasts of anything are a hard bunch to make happy and many drummers certainly fit this description. I particularly liked the focus on groove, what drummers mean to music, and rhythm...

    I give up...Just can't Compete Anymore...

    I am aware, and agree you can learn the techniques, and become as fast an efficient as you individually can, that doesn't mean however anyone can learn to play 1200 singles in a minute. I am sure most top tier Olympic sprinters worked as had, if not harder then Usain Bolt did, but under no...

    Keeping a key at hand

    I keep two in the stick bag, and one extra is on about a 4 inch loop of string. I simply drape the loop over one of the the snare basket arms on my snare stand, and pass the drum key through the loop. This one always stays in that place and is my backup if I dont have stick bag, or I left...

    I give up...Just can't Compete Anymore...

    I agree for the most part, but I do think their are natural limitations for most of us. I can freely admit, no amount of practice is going to get my single stokes as fast as his. Again, in the real world for what I do and my style I am "fast enough", but their will always be limits. For...

    I give up...Just can't Compete Anymore...

    Most of the all time greats at anything have 3 things in common in very large supply, Natural talent, work ethic, and a drive to succeed. I have watched all of Greyson's Tiktoks and Instagrams. In half of them he is pouring in sweat. He obviously puts in the time at the kit, lots of it...

    He is legit, and he can play with people. I have been at it for 35 years and I can admit he is already better then I’ll ever be. God bless him. Check out this video, plenty more but first i could find. https://vm.tiktok.com/ZMR273Nwj/

    Rush's "A Farewell to Kings" Live ... Update: Great Show Last Night!

    I think it will be pretty good, especially as the tour goes on. Generally I liked it in concept. They did it Primus style, which is far better then them trying to sound exactly like Rush. Biggest issue right now is the timing, especially the bass was a bit too loose. I think Les has the...
