Re: The WHY?!? snare thread.

I guess I'm that oddball guy...well that goes without saying...but I have 4 snares one of which I use for every gig and session I do. It's a 5.5x14 SOTA Padauk...what's a SOTA you ask? Well, there was a drum builder in the Chicago area in the 80's who made these wonderful snares from different types...

Re: Drum Camp topic: drum camp reviews and info

I don't dig the drums only thing, but that's where it's at. If they brought in some musicians to show how it all works, and play with the groups, that would be cool, and challenging. Hmm, if you could have something like this with the focus on interacting with musicians, or a sequence as that's pop...

Re: If you are into Elvin

Alva and Paul...Thank you thank you thank you... I was fortunate to have seen Elvin on a couple occasions. One of the sickest players ever. One thing that has to be kept in mind about Elvin when attempting to dissect his playing...it was driven by emotion...joy and heart. That ever-present ear to ea...

Re: YOUR Fantasy future Recording of Vinnie Colaiuta

I just stumbled onto this one...easy one for me. I'd want him to play my compositions and I'd put him with some folks he's already more than comfortable with...Robben Ford, Otmaro Ruiz, Abe Sr. Randy Brecker and we'll throw in Bob Mintzer for giggles. Holy crap!!! I won a Grammy for Jazz Composer of...

Re: Shure Beta 52a + Beta 91a for kick micing

Every time something like this arises I keep thinking "what would Glyn Johns say about this?" Funny you should mention him...we discussed his method on several occasions but honestly just haven't had the balls to try it. Maybe we can give it a shot on some future date just to see what hap...

Re: Tempo...Are you rushing or dragging? - New film

It should NEVER hurt even if you practiced 16 hours a day. I disagree. After 8 hours sitting on a throne, back muscles can hurt. After playing long periods of time you´ll forearms will burn. Everyone is different on how they learn and how much connection they have with their own body... I get your ...

Re: Shure Beta 52a + Beta 91a for kick micing

Well, you can pretty much tailor the 91 to anything you want. Use felt beaters and then use subtractive EQ to soften the attack if you need it. The cool thing is you can get whatever kind of body you want and whatever kind of attack and mix them. But, then again, it's difficult to say without knowi...
