    What to do with used heads?

    I do a fair bit of recording and change heads more than most. I give them to a friend who owns a small local music store and he flips them for a few bucks each.

    The key to swing drumming

    As unpopular as this opinion my be (I know...opinions are like....) You either have it or you don't. You can learn by reading books and watching videos but that always sounds stiff to those in the know. I'll be leaving now but I stand by my statement, critisisms be damned.

    Why no bamboo?

    As someone who as dealt with installers of bamboo flooring, I'll take a guess and say it may not keep it's shape well. In fly rods, the thin strips are glued together so well that it retains that small shape, however, with installing 4, 5 and 6 inch bamboo flooring, it always seems to cup and...

    Got an email from Craviotto/Diamond and man I like what I’m seeing

    The good news is, many more players can finally afford more than a one or two piece Craviotto kit if it's a brand they have to have.

    Has anyone tried a Sennheiser e602 Bass Drum mic before but preferred something else?

    The e602 was my second bass drum mic as it came in a Sennheiser drum mic set. I never cared for it mounted inside on a Kelly SHU. The Shure (my first bass mic) does well on the Kelly. My current fav is the Heil PR48 sounds terrible mounted on the SHU but is magical mounted outside the head...
