    Zoom Q8 Input Settings

    Just got my new zoom q8 that was suggested here for recording my drums. Can anyone suggest settings for the “line in” inputs? When I first tried it, I think the levels were at zero and the pad setting was off. It was really distorted so I set the sound input levels to -10db and the PAD to...

    Personal Recording

    I have a cheaper GoPro version. I took out the external mic and then soldered in a 1/8” adapter to it to be able to send a monitor mix into. But when I plug into it, through my ead 10 to test it, it’s only picking up the acoustic drums, which is odd because I took out the internal mic...

    Brady 14x5.5 Jarrah Ply

    In excellent condition except for the strainer. The nickeleworks strainer it came with broke as per usual with that strainer. I replaced it with another nickleworks and it to broke but does operate if you use an elastic to keep the strainer arm up. I can either replace it with a Dunnett one or...

    The Joys of Jam Hosting

    Had a guy come up Sunday. They call him the animal. He played my kit before and was ok. This time, he was jacked up and apparently trying to prove something. During the second song, Im fuming mad at how hard hes hitting. I actually went and grabbed the ride and crash as he was playing them and...

    Emad head on 16" floor tom

    I recently tried a 16 emad '56 head on my DW 16" floor tom. I'm guessing it's made for a wood hoop as the metal rim was too small. The collar seemed larger. Anyone else try it and able to make it work?

    Fighting the kit and cymbals

    Had one of those nights last night where I really struggled and fought my kit. It's an acoustic set up. Acoustic guitar and stand up bass so I played brushes all night. This can be a challenge getting the drums and cymbals to sound good and project. Anyone else use a lot of brushes on gigs and...

    Drummers and Monitors

    Anyone else experience the attitude that drummers don't need a monitor? I guess we're not as important and don't need to hear what's going. I like a front of house mix so that I can feel I'm accompanying the band vs playing on top of them. If I do t have a good mix, I have a hard night
