  • Funny story....or not...

    So we were practicing this weekend and my bass drum broke. Mind you it is a 1992 SpaceMuffins kick and the piezo finally pooped the bed. Not bad.
    Anyway - our bass player gets all pissy and says "Why don't you buy real drums"...

    I just stared at him in awe... Recently I just went out and bought a PA system (for around $2300) and other gear, we practice at my house, and this dude has the nerve....

    Ok, I vented.....and now its funny.

    On another note Al from Boom Theory is gonna replace the insert free, and set it up to be used with a ddrum4. Very cool.

    You know how many times we've had to stop due to a broken bass string?

          Tell your bass player to get a real (acoustic or stand up) bass.

            Most recent quote from my bass player: "Stop, I gotta re-tune....". On stage, in the middle of a number, nonetheless.

            Bass players are idiots, well, those who I've worked with anyway. Let's replace 'em all with sequencers in tap mode, hooked up to our kicks!

              Gosh, I can't wait to read Binary's response. I'm sure some sort of mayhem/murder awaits.

              p.s. In the decades I've been playing, not one single bass player in any of my bands has ever broken a string, practice or live. In fact, until this post, I didn't even think those things could break!

                In our group we have a well-rounded lead singer who also plays drums and guitar in other groups (he only sings for us though). Two weeks ago our bass player couldn't make a rehearsal. The next time we got together he was saying, "Sorry I couldn't make it to rehearsal the other day..."
                And we were like "No problem at all...Had the best practice in weeks...Phil (singer) picked up the bass and nailed all your parts the first time around!"
                We were joking, but the look on his face was priceless!
                E-drums: TD-20, RT-5S triggers on snare/toms, KD-7s, VH12, CY-14Cs, CY-15R, Pintech splash.
                A-drums: Zickos (amber) w/ all Zildjians.

                  Actually we were going to have the guitarist play the bass tracks and tape him with a video camera. Then we were going to put a big screen tv up on stage and sequence him into the live gig... That would be fricking hilarious.

                    Most bass players want to be guitarists but don't have the skill yet.
                    If you find a bass player that wants to play bass and enjoys bass you are lucky

                      I agree! Almost every band I have ever been in has had an idiot for a bass player. It must have something to do with the low frequencies.

                        I must agree. They are also complete @ssholes, always. It's mainly because ALL bass players are failed guitarists and carrie a definite chip on the shoulder.

                        Eric,
                        I'm suprised you didn't make the leap of death over your kit, woulda been a hard one for me to hold back. Especially hearing of the cash support you given them guys.

                          I have done that before with an egotistical guitarist... He shut up after that.

                          I held my temper pretty well this time...

                          Drummers usually don't have egos like that, but we have short fuses and like to hit things

                            Real drums. Pffff! What a Phag!!

                            In this instance, I'd go out and buy some Roland V's just to show this dude how superior your (our ) instrument is. Then you can show him what real drums have become. My bassist is my brother, and he loves my Vdrums. He and my older bro. even gave me $1500 to help buy them.
