Re: Cymbals Eat Snare

Hahahahaha, I'm might've ever gotten a shard o' stick in the eye, but yeah....if you're playing so loud your eyes hurt you are really hitting too hard.

Wait.... goggles?
Haha. Sorry. Ear goggles. What else can you call them? Ear muffs are things for winter that provide warmth. Construction Worker Hearing Protectors is too much to type.

Re: Cymbals Eat Snare

more db of damage Yeah, this is what needs to be avoided at all costs. I've used the 30db foam plugs forever, you get used to it. The last band I was in was (sometimes) super loud, at practice I wore plugs and goggles as well, you can actually hear everything so much better when the overall volume ...

Re: Cymbals Eat Snare

Just have to note that it is entirely possible to wear ear plugs and goggles and still balance your kit correctly and/or play at a quiet volume. Drums are fucking loud and playing them without ear protection is not an option (for me anyway). Also I have never, ever understood drummers wanting/needin...

Re: Cymbals Eat Snare

It's tough to do even for experienced drummers. Bringing it back to AVH, they overdubbed cymbals on 1984. The only real drum on there is the snare, kick and toms are Simmons pads. Pretty sure he played the hihats live with the drums, all that stuff is mono, the cymbals are big and wide. We should ha...

I like the look of that Studiomaster. And the Cutec is aptly named.

Re: Cymbals Eat Snare

Totally depends on the type of song/type of music though. 'Twas a joke. :D Awhile back I did a cover of Metallica's cover of Blitzkrieg's "Blitzkrieg" (I never tire of writing that), I pretty much copped Lars' part (except, you know, in time ) and I'm pretty sure there's more crashes on that one so...

Re: Cymbals Eat Snare

Before they listened he'd ask the guy how many times the drummer hit a crash. Honky Tonk Women would be good song for that test. IIRC there's just the one at the end. The song I'm working on right now is 18 minutes long, last night I counted the crashes. 18! One per minute seems like the right amou...

Re: Cymbals Eat Snare

Assuming it's tuned right, a black beauty oughta be all sorts of forgiving for a very wide dynamic range. A good drummer who knows how to play in the studio will hit the snare really consistently and it won't matter what their other hand is doing, the kit will still sound balanced, the snare will st...

The drummer last week plays rim shots on the snare almost exclusively. That alone was choking the snare
Yeah, they're doing it wrong. Either hitting way too hard or leaving the stick on the head after the strike, or both.

Lots of good advice in losthighway's post!

Re: Cymbals Eat Snare

It's either the drummers not hitting the snare hard enough relative to the cymbals, or it's crappy cymbals. Open hats and riding on a crash will both eat the snare (and everything else in the mix) if not done well, you really need to be pretty gentle with both to have it come out sounding right, esp...

Fostex 280 is what I learned on and that thing was a great machine, I wish I still had it.
