    The "graveyard" subforums

    So, I just got a thread moved to the video files sub-forum. And yeah, ok, I understand that there is a system in place to arrange things in pre-determined categories. The thing is, it is somewhat sad that user-created videos are sent to a sub-forum where trafic is virtually non-existant. A...

    video demo of my 4 mics recording setup

    BeyerDynamics M160's as Overheads BeyerDynamics M88 Kick AKG 222 Snare top All go through a Phoenix DRS-8 (preamps) and are recorded in Luna with a UAD Appolo. There's a smidge of Pultec EQ on the snare, nothing on OH's and Kick. I use Kush Audio's Novatron comp on the drum bus, pretty...

    Anyone knows anything about Dorothy Overstreet?

    Shelby Lynne's breakout album "I am Shelby Lynne" has been a favorite of mine in the female singer/songwriter genre ever since it came out years ago. I particularly love the drums throughout. Today I was surprised to google who played on this and discover that it is a woman named Dorothy...

    Strange hi-pitch ring from kick

    I'm recording my Rogers Holliday set and when I solo'd the kick, I noticed a sorta metalic, tuning fork-like hi-pitched ring on the track. So I muffled all of the surrounding toms and cymbals and made sure none of the stands are in contact with anything, but I still hear it accoustically. Even...

    Ash Soan having fun spoofing the Stones...

    Man! This dude entertains me to no end. Not everything he does falls into my musical pallette but I have so muuuuuch respect for the boldness of his tones and his incredible inner metronome.

    Self recording brings out the OCD I didn't know I suffered from...

    My band and I are in the midst of recording an album each from his own house. I've always been a pretty loose kinda guy and I like un-sanitised, organic feeling music, warts and all. Wich is pretty much what this band is about. But now, being alone at the helm, with no producer or buddy to...

    Aaaaw man! I'm feelin' GAS-y again...

    I just got back from my local drumshop and tried a 135th anniversary Broadkaster mahoganny snare. Sorry the pics are from some other store's website, I had too much fun playing and didn't even think about whipping out the cell to snap pics. That is the danger of stting foot in a shop instead of...

    New beater woes

    For a while now, I've been playing with a very old, light and soft BD beater made of what I assume is felt/compact wool. It is very forgiving with very little attack so my occasional bad rebounds and/or flutter are somewhat subdued and get "lost" in the overall sound. Now that I record more at...

    First official record track with the Broadkasters. (updated audio)

    I did it on my own from my living room. And I couldn't be any prouder of my result. Man those Broakasters looooove the mics and vice versa. I've spent my life in and around studios, worked on lots of albums, lending a hand on pretty much every aspect of songwriting, performing, engineering...

    Cleaning velvetty thrones

    Ok, I will spare the details but it is time for my trusty but musty Roc n Soc to get a bit of freshenning up. Do you guys have product of choice for cleaning your fabric thrones that won't cause discoloration or damage? Baking soda? Oxy clean? Scotchguard fabric cleaner? Maybe some sports...

    What seemingly easy song/part did you surprizingly struggle with?

    My 12 y/o daughter learned Ballroom blitz on bass and I want to play it with her. "Piece of cake!" I thought to myself... But I'm struggling with the snare accents over the swing BD pattern in the opening riff. I can play the snare part A-1 if I just keep a steady boom-chick under it. But the...

    Throw-off location while snare is on stand.

    Well it may seem like a dumb question, but here it is: Where do you guys/gals usually put the throw when your snare is on the stand? I've always put it at 9 o'clock i.e. on the left hand side right under the hi-hat. And if I'm not mistaken, most of my drummer friends do the same. But lately I've...

    Buffing minor wrap scratches

    What do you guys use to polish/buff out very shallow scratches of the surface of vintage wrapped drums?is it even advised or not? Is there some sort of wax or some sort of "plastic renew" equivalent that wouldn't tarnish or dammage an older drum finish? ( i used to use PR on scratched dirtbike...

    So I just went to the shop to try a Broadkaster *UPDATE* now mine!

    Yeah, I've been salivating about this one for a while and doing a bit of research about this line, the brand and all. What with all this talk about big name who endorse other brand who secretly recorded with Gretsch and other seemingly outlandish claims. So I had to hear and see for myself...

    The "virtual pat on the back" thead.

    I'm sure a lot of you guys/girls have had tons of free time on their hands this year, most of you involuntarily, just like me. And I suppose that for most of you, a good chunk of that free time has been spent on the pad and/or kit, either getting back into playing shape, brushing up on...

    On a benefit gig (surprise Craviotto encounter and serious studio gear...)

    Today I'm back to wearing my singer/songwriter shoes for a benefit for a foundation helping people with mental health issues. The concert is pre-filmed/recorded in a studio and I had a surprise when I got here, the backup band's drummer has a very nice Craviotto kit wich is an extremely rare...

    Vintage Premier steel snare ID

    Good evening fine fellow forumites, I'd like to call on the few Premier afficionados here to help me ID this snare. Unfortunately, no paper tag or model name badge is present. The throw off/strainer is some kind of parallel system with split wires, 10 strands to each side. I didn't take the tape...

    Help me find good head combo for 70's Rogers kit.

    Hi guys, my bro owns a studio and his house kit is a 70's Rogers 22 13 16 set that currently has jurassic era ambassadors turned to clear over time ;-) I'm offering him a re-head/re-tune as a present because I know he won't do it on his own. Most of the recordings he does are pretty much always...
