Re: Standard or "Power" sizes?

If you want power don't go with so called power toms. Just by the physics of sound waves and the modes that can resonate inside a cavity like a drum, power toms have the opposite effect if you consider pure dB/stroke. There's a sweet spot ratio closer to standard sizes which, combined with proper tu...

Re: Me playing songs...and a sad story

Tim, Beat, Julian, thank you! PS: Are you still 100% into polishing your guitarist's edge or are you back into shedding on the drums again?? Watch this and tell me if my guitar playing needs polish... http://s447.photobucket.com/user/tombo74/library/OMG I wonder why I have the balls to post this on ...

Re: Me playing songs...and a sad story

Thanks guys. In French, probably unlistenable for many. But hey a chorus is actually “Sweet California” ...huh Yeah, tons of verb. Since when do drummers have a say on final mix?! I also came back to overdub percussions. Like shaker and tambourine on backbeats or shaked. As easy as it may seem, shak...

Re: Check out the track I recorded recently!

This is obviously a rough mix demo. Some parts of the tune I like very much, others not. Definitely something to do with that singer. Not sure the indie style is the best vehicle for her. On the drumming: The few timing issues don't disrupt the aimed groove (although I would take notes of where and ...

Me playing songs...and a sad story

It’s been a long time since I posted some of my playing. A few years ago I recorded an album with a french singer. I was called in the studio at the last minute because the regular drummer had accepted a tour in Asia and left. I showed up at the studio with my gear having no idea of the music we'd p...

Re: Songs identifiable by the drums

Good calls up to now. Yes, it's been a while since a hit had a signature drum groove or lick. A drummer quickly identifialble is Alex Van Halen. Non-drummer people I know can tell a VH song by the drums. His sound is really idstinctive, bright, clear, "in your face" loud in the mix. Distiv...

Re: Songs identifiable by the drums

I't's not endless if we consider major popular hits that mere mortals know and not only drum gods like us 8-)

Songs identifiable by the drums

That Run to the hills groove gave me the idea for a thread on songs that you can hum the drum beat and everyboby will recognize. There are not a lot of them and hats-off to the drummers who created these parts. From the top of my head: Run to the hills Sunday bloody sunday We will rock you Cum on fe...

Re: RIP Clive Burr

Oh No!! First drum hero for me too. I really dug Maiden's first 3 albums. Played along a lot to all of them. Defined 80s metal. Killers killed! Loved Di'Anno and Clive. Yes, one on the few drummers to have created an instantly identifiable beat on Run to the hills. Also the verse grooves of Run to t...
