Short background: I joined this band about 2 years ago. One gig, then COVID. Now, we start again. Switched some songs to German language, including this one.
Any comments on our music, my playing / sound etc. are welcome. The more critical the better, because I'd like to improve. I already...
I guess there might be a connection.
I stumbled once about the note that Jeff Ocheltree (drum technician of John Bonham) worked later on for Alex Van Halen. That explained - at least to me - a lot of his unconventional drum sounds.
Ocheltree explaining Bonham sound:
But I read also some...
For me, the habit changed over the years. I was never the first, but avoided to be last, for the reasons already mentioned.
But I have to tell you this story:
There was a 'blues project' and we had a gig not far away from my home (probably half an hour to drive). The singer / band leader told...
This 'dang practice kit' is something very special. Discussed here for example. Probably not the easiest kit to record.
To the thread starter who is considering between 2002 and 602:
I play both. The 2002 have excellent rides and hi-hats. I personally don't favor the crashes (except the 24, but...
Sorry, I was wrong. Your catalogue pages already proof that 'Dallas-Arbiter' was not selling electronics only (what I thought), but also offered cymbals. Didn't know that.
It's easy to get confused with all the activities of Ivor Arbiter. Probably worth an own chapter in Drum History.
Thank you so much for all the work you put in. Great.
Very minor remark:
This might be the wrong name. There was an important guy named 'Ivor Arbiter', who founded a couple of companies (Arbiter Electronics, Arbiter Western, Dallas-Arbiter, Hayman Drums, Arbiter Autotune Drums, ...). I'm not...
Good morning Drum Forum
With my post no. 100 it's really time to say 'hello' to all of you. And I wanted to shortly introduce myself:
I already liked drums as child, and started in my youth. At around 16, I got my first drum kit and was drumming a year later in local bands, what I'm basically...
Really great drumming. Congratulations and thanks for sharing.
Complicated song with many tempo and rhythm changes. A good showcase for a good drummer, as you have to play with force, AND you have to set all the tempi right. Both is not easy, but together it's hard. OK, here it is 'playing...
This venue has some history behind. It's the St.Thomas Church in Leipzig (Germany), where Johann Sebastian Bach worked most of his life. He liked the acoustics of the building, and his grave is inside, too.
Can't imagine better venues for J.S. Bach compositions.
I knew the Jacques Loussier...
From a pure economical point of view, it would be better for many of us, not to buy any drums at all.
Anyway, if I remember right, I bought more drum kits 'new' than 'vintage'. But the new ones aged (together with me), and are now all considered 'vintage' - what I voted for.
Very good question.
The discussion is interesting to read (with all the ups and downs of forum discussions), but the final presentation of the trophy is missing.
I would like to know, how these Camco drums sound now. In all the decades, a lot of bad things can happen to shells. But maybe they...
Thank you for the answers and sorry that I didn't respond earlier. I totally missed your reactions. Just wanted to bump up this topic today because I thought nobody answered yet.
I already tried to contact Mehmet Tamdeger about that (via Turkish email address), but without success. Have...
