    Off topic: Watch collectors

    Finally took the plunge, with a Seiko. It arrived today. I'd read poor reviews of this band, and after wearing it for a few hours, I have to agree with them. But that's fixable. So far, I like it! Also my arms are hairier than they used to be.

    Your Home Studio Mac Mini Configuration

    I'd go 16MB ram, but yeah that should be sufficient for small projects. i am never tracking more than 8 tracks at once but it's flawless for me- and wow, the exports are hilariously fast in comparison with the Intel chip

    Any doom metal recommendations?

    I generally back the above suggestion- larger(19+), medium or medium thin crash cymbals(perhaps substituting rides for crashes), a big ride with a big bell, and some larger medium to heavy hats. In some situations a heavier ride with a solid bell works well, others can be filled just with a...

    Show us your Copper!!! Lets see your closet copper snare drums, you know you have some! UPDATED TOTALS!

    I've only used it in recording/rehearsal situations. it recorded incredibly well, the group and engineer both really liked it, the engineer was interested in one for himself. However, i had it tuned down and dampened for a particular effect, so i wasn't letting it really do it's thing(but it...

    Flat Base Cymbal stands

    I've been using flat base stuff exclusively for about the last 18 years. Mostly the flat base ones Ludwig was selling in the mid-00s. I have a bunch of those and primarily use them, even in pretty loud/heavy playing situations and they never gave me any trouble. They're kind of cheap and...

    Holy Grail cymbals

    i was playing in a band with 3 full stacks, and we repeatedly played at venues that did not mic drums. also this Heavy was a on the lighter side of what qualifies as heavy. still a ridiculous situation. a matter of trying to keep up with massive volume.

    Holy Grail cymbals

    Probably two that I've owned and cracked over the years, and tried my hardest to find replacements for- a 20" NOS 60s A Zildjian Medium Ride a 20" IAK Zildjian Heavy ride I've owned 4 or 5 other examples of each cymbal and none came close! I'm sure it was just the level of familiarity I had...

    Has anyone ever built their own racks with 80/20 aluminum extrusion?

    Wow, this stuff looks great. Thanks for mentioning, I never would’ve know about it.

    Proline Snare rack...Finally here.

    I had a roll of those towels that have perforations at the half mark, so that’s what I used. But since they’re rectangular, there isn’t as much overhang. I put them lengthwise under the wires. I didn’t worry about covering the whole length of the wires, there’s enough there that it mutes it...

    OT - Live albums you’re on

    i was at this show- on the LP version i can be heard yelling my approval at one point. I was pretty amused when i noticed that.

    Proline Snare rack...Finally here.

    Nice! I have one and love it. I put a half paper towel between the wires & head of all the drums in the rack, it kills the buzz when I’m playing.
