    The Messenger Legacy - Art Blakey Centennial Celebration

    He puts so much into it. I love a jazz drummer who plays hard enough to need a towel to wipe sweat off his face. His brush work is reallly great too.

    The Messenger Legacy - Art Blakey Centennial Celebration

    They absolutely killed it! Ralph Peterson did Art Blakey's legacy justice for sure.

    Just happen to be in Seattle tonight, and this was happening at Jazz Alley. Got tickets. Anyone else in Seattle going?

    Backstage (again) at Dave Matthews Band!

    One of these days, you're going to get the call. Carter's sick and Dave needs a fill in. ;)

    Quantizing John Bonham

    "It's not that bad", some have said. It's actually not bad at all. And that's the real tragedy of it. "Not bad" might be good enough, but it will never be great.

    speaking of bad posture..Phil Collins story

    I can't possibly know, but genetic factors usually seem to be in play with these kinds of back issues, no matter a person's occupation.

    speaking of bad posture..Phil Collins story

    I really doubt his condition is purely a result of how he sat at his drum kit.

    Quantizing John Bonham

    Rick puts out so much content, you can probably find something that rubs you the wrong way. He's a machine. I don't know how he does it, but I don't have time to watch all the stuff he creates.

    Wow

    It's not a tambourine. It's a pandeiro.

    Sitting too low

    The rationale, as I remember it, was that when stomping double bass drums like a caveman it was easier to balance when bringing both legs up in rapid succession. I remember reading that in some drum magazine as a kid, dreaming about the 14 piece monster kits in the ads.

    Quantizing John Bonham

    Yep, it's horrible. And yep, it's made modern rock sterile and boring. Potentially unpopular opinion: Most drummers aren't good enough to play on a record given today's budgets. Even back in the good old days when they could afford to do take after take after take, they'd still sometimes...

    WONDER HOW MUCH ON FOR SALE SECTION ACTUALLY GETS SOLD?

    Bought two cymbals here from different sellers. Couldn't have had better transactions.

    Mounted Tom Placement

    That is true, but it's more than that. They descend in the "reverse" order which is what the thread is about. They could have easily put the smallest drum center left. It's still unbalanced because the center left is bigger than center right, and far left is bigger than far right. Even if...

    Best worst excuses to buy gear?

    I got a new job, start on Monday. So I bought over 4k worth of mics and recording gear to make drum tracks that only a handful of people will ever hear or care about. Sweetwater has 48 months no interest right now if anyone else wants to go nuts.

    Sitting too low

    Some players find more stability sitting lower playing heels up on their pedals.

    OT: Tool!

    I hate to be negative, but I don't expect something that took this long to be their best work. I feel like if took that long to get right, there was a lack of inspiration. I hope I'm wrong.

    Going into the home studio?

    I'm also curious about how common this kind of situation is, where the engineer has done extensive work to make his home studio pro grade. The home studio in my town I discovered via random Facebook post seems to have done just that.
