    For you singing drummers - throat spray

    Never use numbing throat spray unless you want to oversing and trash your throat.

    Who Is the Best Drummer You've Seen This Year?

    You got that right. I only worked with him a couple times and it’s been years but he is about as good as it gets.

    Safely removing Logos

    I have an SR2 which is either sandblasted or scraped up, and my logos came right off with Barkeeper’s Friend and a wet rag. No ill effects on the sound.

    Ludwig Ringo Kit Sighting

    Ringo used a Jazz Fest. Just sayin’ ;) But that’s a really nice kit in what looks like great shape. Think he’d take $500 and a 7-drum Ddrum Diablo set with two giant bass drums in trade?

    Alex and Geddy with Matt Stone on drums

    There’s a lot of stuff out there that could use some deflating through satire. I don’t think they pick unfair targets at least.

    Who's Gone Back To Basics?

    Count me in, with a very similar story to yours all around, except for the Supra, which I sub out with a vintage Ludwig and Ludwig maple snare I’ve had since I was 7, and I realized how much better it was than anything else a long time ago ;) My main bass is better than a Squier, too (even...

    Extreme/Progressive Metal - What Are You Listening To?

    Winny Puhh from Estonia. Not strictly metal, sometimes it’s not even music, but usually it’s quite heavy. Also very funny and accompanied by very low budget stunts and wild costumes.

    Head Logic?

    I dig that, but I was talking about the heads rather than the drums themselves. I was thinking that the volume gulf between a louder head and a quieter one would be less on an 8 or 10 inch tom than an 18. What do you think?

    Right, not concerned about that, just wanted to know. Too bad it’s in Daytona, which I try to avoid at all costs ;)

    Lol…only takes about 20-25 hours ;)

    Is there a drums only store near us? I’ve looked a little and the only one I found shut down a while back.

    Can you play all of these parts by yourself?

    They needed charts for that? ;)

    Help choosing between drums

    Ya, lateral move to the Exports. Might as well keep your Sonors.

    Head Logic?

    I have to think that the relative loudness of a head is affected by drum size, and the smaller, the less noticeable. Have I put this theory to the test? No ;)

    Muffling... The Resonant Head?

    Yep, Dave’s pretty deaf. Still has a little but not much. But while ear protection would have helped, it’s as easy to make yourself deaf with IEMs as open air with raging monitors. They’re no assurance of keeping your hearing, and honestly, I think they are harder on your hearing.

    Gretsch Brooklyn Micro kit and in general

    Whoops…was thinking you were talking about the bop kit when you said Micro kit. Didn’t know they made an even smaller kit.

    Gretsch Brooklyn Micro kit and in general

    I never played one but I did a few gigs with a guy who had just got a new set of them and was also using Ludwig Accents as his day to day kit. The Accents were fine but the Brooklyns were noticeably better. They have a really rich tone. I forgot the tom sizes but the 18” bass drum was quite...
