Although, this has made me rethink that approach too.

I guess I'm the opposite of T-rex and Dave. I like sticks with some weight and diameter for everything but jazz or acoustic things. I still use my same set of Firth SD1 generals when I do Stick Control and the like. Playing rock, funk, pop, anything with a serious backbeat, I want the stick to work...

No, it was Rick Mattingly. I took lessons from him briefly when I first started playing drums, right after he moved back to Kentucky from New York.

Hey Rex, What kind of hand-hammered cymbals are you sporting there? They look shiny and nice... fairly dark-sounding, are they?? GJ Short Story: They are K Constantinoples. Long story: I bought a 20" Light Ride with three rivets (Memphis Drum shop special - made for them) then a 22" Medium Thin Hig...

You are totally correct. I am going through the stick control book right now so I went back to the first page with these. The speed and control I have with these is so much more than with my normal sticks, yet they still sound great. They don't sound thin at all. It actually makes me want to play mo...

I didn't see all the other posts. I totally agree on the powerstroke and emperor combo and I love my Ludwig 24" kick dearly. My little catalina bass drum came with solid powerstroke type heads on both sides and tuned low wow, that sounds amazing. So I may try a solid powerstroke on front of my 22" k...

I use an e602 inside the kick and a Mouse about an inch or two off the front head. Mix to taste. Before the mouse I used an old kenwood 12 inch home speaker cabinet with just the woofer connected. The 602 is awesome and cheap but any combination will work if you have one mic to capture the attack an...

Drummers - Bopworks Drumsticks - Awesome!

So I have been woodshedding like crazy on drums lately since I am currently not in a band and I actually have a little spare time. One of the things I am getting back to is some jazz and in trolling the net I came across this company called Bopworks. They make vintage style hickory drum sticks. So I...

For 65 bucks, you can't go wrong.
I love tremolo. I would put tremolo on every track if people would let me. Luckily they don't.

I do love Gretsch, even though I have a big ass set off?DW for my main kit now. I had a Broadkaster bop kit in the nineties when I was playing a lot of jazz and a round badge set of Toms for rock until just a few years ago. They sounded amazing, but were a bitch to get and keep in tune due to their ...

Yeah, I really wanted a USA custom set, but I play so little jazz I couldn't justify that and the cymbals. And those catalina's do sound damn good.
