    Bongo advice

    I would love to have the sound of bongos from something that could be played with a stick so I can just mix it in with my regular kit. But I’ve never found anything to do it. I’m guessing I’ll never get closer than using something sampled and electronic.

    Thoughts on DW drums!

    In my case, I bought them both, put the same heads on them and set them up side by side. DWs were an exotic wood finish and the Gretsch were wrapped. I couldn’t really hear anything different between them. But the fit and finish of the DW was considerably better. So I sold the Gretsch kit...

    Tuning for bop drums

    Well first of course you have to define what a tuned drum actually is ;)

    New A&F Hi-Hat Stand

    Idon’t get the reason to have a folding system. First it appears the top section doesn’t fold flat so that means it will take up more space than a detachable top. Secondly, the actual folding linkage will wear around the pins as inevitably the top will bend back a bit every time you pick it...

    In Praise of Masterwork

    I bought a Masterwork Jazz Pointer ride a few years ago really by accident. It has become my favorite jazz ride cymbal. There’s something about that B25 alloy that just sets these apart.

    I guess I am old but I find this puzzling

    In my opinion Ebay feedback is 99.9% useless. Amazon, otoh, is enormously amusing. People leaving one star reviews saying it didn’t fit when the dimensions are clearly posted

    Drum hacks

    Hose clamps work great. But shaft locks are sexier if you don’t mind a couple of bucks.

    Low ride cymbal vs. High ride cymbal positioning!

    I think the decision is mostly based on whether you play your ride cymbal with a French (thumb up) grip or a German (palm down) grip. If French it can go up and with German it should be lower.

    SOLD -Roland Octa-Capture 8 channel interface

    No. I had it mounted in a rack tray that allowed me to also have a 4 channel headphone amp. The Roland unit is about 2/3 wide.

    Pretty easy fix if the finish is n. lacquer. If it’s poly probably isn’t gonna happen

    Roland TD 30 connections to PA

    Stagescape is a much higher quality mixer.

    Roland TD 30 connections to PA

    I’n not certain that you can do anything in the Behringer mixer that you can’t just assign in the TD30. You would have much higher dynamic range bypassing the Behringer mixer and going directly into the Stagescape mixer.

    Manufacturers use the word to distinguish between the lower end of their professional equipment lines and the higher end of it and “consumer” gear to be even lower grade. It describes the gear itself and not the user of the gear.

    Light Thrones

    Another complaint that manufacturers rarely list the weight of their thrones. So when I can’t find it I often look to Amazon as they publish the shipping weight and just guess from there. Today I was looking at the Yamaha DS550 throne. Amazon lists the weight at 4lbs while the very similat...
