Re: Vinnie and Bromberg

wow, sorry to have hurt your feelings. I didn't mean to make fun of Vinnie, more of the artists who make all those tribute records. Let's relax a bit. I doubt that's the way he looks at it. He probably just got a call, was told about when and what the session was, that they'll meet his rates, he ch...

Drums are Tama Starclassic Birch, w/ die-cast rims. Maybe getting some different rims (S Hoops?) would help? Any suggestions? I think you're outta luck on that one.

What heads are you currently using?

I'm wanting to change things up a bit, and am looking for suggestions. I currently use coated Ambassadors on the tops of all drums (Kick included) and clear Ambassadors on the bottoms (hazy on snare, coated Ambassador as the kick reso).

Re: Advice Needed: How to Get Playing in Austin, Texas

Trust me, if you go about in Austin telling guys that you're a "fusion drummer", all you're going to get are some blank stares, and little to no phone calls. People tie fusion in with lots of chops, lotes of notes, and lots of wanking, which is NOT what's going to get you a gig. To be hone...

Re: Advice Needed: How to Get Playing in Austin, Texas

Okay, well, first off, here's my post from the old forum when someone asked about Austin: *Ahem. Ah, Austin, TX. Well, without diving too much in to how I got here and making it about me... I've been here a little over two years. I was playing with people within a few weeks of being out here (thank ...
