I'm in the camp suggesting brass. I now rotate between Yamaha Manu Katche brass and Yamaha Copper both with die cast hoops and both with unique sounds. Copper has a drier sound and I tune up quite a bit and is more tame while the brass cuts like a knife at all tunings. I keep wanting to add a...
I'm curious if the drummer's position isn't perhaps the worst place in the world to assess a ride cymbal. I have a 22" K that I landed on after going through a ton. It doesn't sound so hot while I play it but it does when someone else is and I'm across the room or downstairs. It sounds like the...
Red or blue sparkle are equally sexy. Go figure, my Yammys are natural. Several years back, tried to buy a set of blue sparkle Yammys off a guy who I think is a member here and just couldn't quite get to a price we could both live with...the one that got away.
I dabbled in V-Drums for 20 years. All I gots now is my 6 piece Yammy BCAN set with choice of copper or brass Yammy snares. The e/V-Drum companies still haven't produced adequate sounding modules without triggering VSTs. Too complex and too many points of failure for playing live.
Not to get into deep doo with a forum moderator, but is there any kind of music besides prog rock? Not in my house <insert picture of man yelling at clouds>! :wav:
These lists are nuts. Music is in the ear of the beholder. I don't need a journalist to tell me what's what.
Build the portfolio of different sounds for different situations. I'm running brass, copper and maple. Next up for me is some Ludaloy/alumnum. Would love some bronze but that might be stretching myself with GAS rather than logic.
A comment left by a local over on The Gear Page: "Awakened by the sound of the tornado warning system. By all accounts there is a lot of damage. A friend of mine at Basement East says the venue is a total loss, and there are several collapsed buildings that may have people trapped."
I vote to leave it virgin but I'm not you. You may have some wood splinter going that way, but that's how I would do it. High speed on the drill but go slow as the drill penetrates all the way through. Make sure you have a firm grasp on the drill so it doesn't do anything but go straight in.
<influenced by SM81 thread> Over the years, I've accumulated used Shure "drum" mics and I'd like to start doing some home recording.
What are you using for overhead boom stands or what are you encountering when supplied?
I'm trying to avoid buying huge, expensive stands for my man cave due to...
