    That's why I call it a drum kit. To call it a drum set implies its a full set of drums and all drummers know you can never complete a set of drums.

    There is always something else that is needed. Hence a drum kit is endless.

  • On A-kits I always preferred wood tip even thought the tips would degrade on the cymbals and they would give out too with the rim shots but then that would happen whatever tip you had. On these Es I don't think it makes any difference. Its the way you set up each trigger that makes the sound differ...

    replied to Freeing the left hand side of the kit
    My module is always on the left but that is only because when I bought a PD125 to use as my snare and I put it on a proper snare stand so the module is now mounted on the rack arm (swung round), that use to support the snare pad. Its position is sort of between the HiHat and the first mounted tom /...

    Yea it happens like that. When I was gigging, something that was really taxing gradually became second nature. I suppose though that goes for most things....

    You probably put the guitars on the fire to keep warm and just forgot. Sh-t happens. Anyway, glad you have made your way back home mate.

    Yea like 90% of stuff is the same format that was being played back in the 60's. Like you say though MKOK, if something is gradually changing speed and it goes into a break at one speed and comes out at another speed it is very difficult to keep track of it, counting or not. Never had this situation...

    replied to Rotate My Toms?
    Yes mate each head gets a different amount of bashing so rotating is good. Saying that I have never worn through a mesh head yet. After 12 years of playing every day, and I am quite a hard hitter. Back in the A days you would break the tip off the stick and before you realised it, you had put it though...

    replied to Playing Along
    I reckon probably 90% of the stuff I play along to I do know and have a pretty good idea of where its going. Another 5% I have heard but not that into it. The last 5%, no idea, and the improvisation has no chance. I think its going right, then realise I am a beat or half a beat out. Bloody annoying,...

    I must explain guys, I gigged in rock bands for over 25 years, and only had to give it up because I got done for drink driving and lost my license. I did not stop playing my old practice kit though but when I got my licence back, things had moved on and DJs had got a hold in the clubs and pubs so after...

    Nursey never gives out freebies. It will cost you at least an ice cream, or a weenie. (however you spell it).

    I have tried consulting nursey on the subject of my hearing but hers is worse than mine, ever since the brothel blew up.

    I did not think that the way I talk could be an issue but who am I to say. I mean, I don't talk to me any more so what do I know,

    Well occasionally may be, like if I want an expert opinion on something, but there ya go. Very rarely.

    Yea then as I suspected. I don't hold my breath I know that and I always keep the kick and high hat going. Like you say though when you have been gigging for a few years all the band members acquire the metronome and you can rely on each other to keep time when there's a break on. Also, just playing...

    Don't know about Dog Tired mate, but definitely felt Dog Eared. Didn't like the taste of them plums much anyway, but worth a night in the cell with food and drink all supplied, and a bed for the night.

    You got to hand it to Her Majesty, she knows how to treat you for the night.
