Re: Manu Katché

That snare sound, (in my opinion) comes from where he's playing the drum. He never seems to play dead center. He also doesn't seem to be playing that hard (lack of velocity,) and is therefore not choking the drum, and just "letting" it speak, naturally. Anyway... MSG So true. A drummer's ...

Re: The CoronaVIRUS - touring, music activity...and much more

Williams' phrased like a rock drummer with that huge "jazz" set up drum kit. Listening, I can argue what he plays does not go well this this style... yet, he is Tony Williams, so... you know how many drummers auditioned or got fired for even trying to phrase like this over the years? many...

Re: Manu Katché

Yeah Paul he sounds great in that context. I don't like many of the ECM records he has been involved in, but the live Jan Garbarek cd called "Dresden" is really good, and more non-ecm-ish, if you get what I mean. His first solo record "it's About Time" is a really good pop record...

Re: Neil Peart

Really nice, sincere, and very well done Steve, I learned a lot. He touched a lot of people, I hope he knew just how many people he affected. I wish it was more accepted for us to do things like this while people were still alive. Just a good honest appreciation for a person and his artistic contrib...

Re: Snare Drum Inquiry (give me your thoughts!!)

Hey WillyZ! Are you out East now? We should hook up if you are close by, I'm in NJ. Anyway... Stave Shells- I have a few, a Brady and a Unix. I am VERY wary of anyone making stave shells because they are relatively "easy" for someone to build-experiment in their garage, and if they don't k...

Re: RIP Jimmy Copley

Peter, Very nice to see your name again, I always remember you as the "bass drum pedal guy." (right?) Glad to hear that you got through your misfortunes, I sincerely hope the upward trend continues! Now on to music. Strange that you bring up Jimmy. A few years back I found myself only list...

Re: Can we just talk Gretsch drums a bit.

OAO, I have many Gretsch drums. BD's in 18 through 24, and toms in 8 through 18, and a few snares. I have been working on this "shell bank" for a long time. I never set them all up at one time, I just like to pick and choose sizes for each gig. There are many examples of these drums in man...

Re: HODers VIDEOS TOPIC - Your own drum videos here

No Paul, the process of playing softly with sticks is one of the best "excersises" you can do. It helps you improve your touch, you develop the ability to control your cymbal (and drum) sound. The idea of playing very intensely at a low volume (burn hot on a low flame) will GREATLY improve...

Re: tom sizes (15x15)

Jem, I am a HUGE fan of 15" toms. I actually have three. I have a complete set (all sizes) of older Yamaha Tour Customs and that includes a 13x15 (mountable floor tom.) For my Gretsch's (again, I have them in all sizes) I have a mountable 13x15 and a 15x15 with legs. As Paul said, a 15 is a per...
