    Sonor SQ1 - First Month of Ownership

    Now that they have discontinued the red and green finishes, there are some crazy sales. I am tempted to to get 13/16/24 in green for like $1799 new. Thoughts?

    How many of you all play bass?

    I’ve wanted to learn for years. My percussionist daughter wants to learn as well. I’m buying her one over the holidays, and may try to learn on it myself as well. Was thinking Squier also, or Used Fender player series. Is there a strong argument for precision vs jazz bass for beginners?

    Need Advice for Apartment/Condo practicing

    Okay, now unfortunately it’s my turn to explore the “I’m getting divorced and need to be able to practice in an apartment” thing. I bought an Evans real feel bass pad. What’s best low volume cymbals on a budget? I’m a zildjian guy, but for this purpose okay with going cheaper brands. And am I...

    JDA- thanks for sharing your Berklee experiences. I was a nerd and went to Harvard. My drum teacher, Bob Gullotti, went to Berklee, but a little before you, I think. He then became an instructor there well after your time.

    Tell me why I need to upgrade to a different DAW

    I recently got into home recording, and have Logic Pro X. I found Austin Burcham's free youtube series "How to Record Drums" very helpful to get started in Logic Pro X. Just the right amount of detail to get started.

    Tuning and sensitivity on 8x14 snares

    I'm at work now, but I am pretty sure that I have it around 260-270. I can try lowering reso tension and report back. That is sort of counterintuitive for me, as I thought that would give less sensitivity and a more "tom" sound on ghost notes. No?

    Tuning and sensitivity on 8x14 snares

    Hey guys- Recently got a lightly used Yamaha RC 8x14 birch snare (new model) on reverb. I'm not that experienced with snares of this depth. Snare sounds good when hit hard, but any ghost notes have no snare sound on them. Like I'm hitting a tom. I took off the Evans HD dry I had put on, and...

    If you could only have two.... snares that is.

    If stuck on a desert island I, too, would want my Gretsch Bell Brass. I love the way it sounds live and in recordings. Plus, I could use it to communicate with people stranded on neighboring desert islands hundreds of miles away.
