    replied to Weight of stick
    I looked up this stick just now. Ah yes, okay. The VF Buddy Rich signature stick is like a 5A on steroids. Slightly thicker all around, but with a long, graduated taper at the shank that enhances rebound. I'll have to give this stick a try. Thanks!



    I think the "don't...

    I know what you mean when saying a heavier stick can feel "mushy" on mesh heads. You can counteract this as follows. First way, raise the tension of the mesh heads somewhat. Second way, move the fulcrum of your grip forward just a tad. You can do one or the other, or both. Why use a thicker...

    I use quite a few of Vic Firth's sticks, too. 5A. 7A. SD10 Swinger. Peter Erskine Ride Stick. Dave Weckl (Burgundy Brown). Dave Weckl Evolution (Yellow Light Brown). While I like a smaller, finer tip for ride playing (especially for jazz), for general purpose playing I prefer a rounder barrel...

  • jpsquared482,

    Thanks for posting this thread. I'd forgotten about Sensory Percussion. It's good to see their system now touts mesh head support! Apart from this, my reaction is much the same as before. I'll quote myself from the other thread: "Sensory Percussion's implementation seems...

    I use a variety of stick weights on electronic drums and these are the same variety of weights I use with acoustic drums. For example, if I'm playing a lot of quick, intricate patterns, I may choose a stick with a thinner and more tapered shank. Thinner shank = more rebound, but less power. Conversely,...

    jpsquared482,

    "Another point of interest about Pintech - Can anyone tell me how they got their name? They didn't get their start in electronic drums."

    I'm really interested to hear how they started. Searching the web turned up nothing, though perhaps I simply didn't...

    hemiboy,

    "Thanks Tang!"

    You're most welcome. I've not played Pintech's Phoenix snare drums or their current Pro Series snare drums, so that's why I didn't comment on them....

    Fair comments, Alan. I should clarify my post. I don't actually think Yamaha is targeting professional, recording, or gigging drummers with the EAD10. What I meant to say is I can't really see that market segment being interested in the EAD10 and I (myself) am not familiar enough with the market...

    To be clear, personally, I think the EAD10 is dead in the water before it even starts. It's a product that does a lot of things and none of them very well. It's unlikely I'd ever buy one and I cannot imagine any of my drummer peers being interested. For e-drums, the EAD10 isn't capable enough to drive...

  • I'll add a short clarification to jpsquared482's excellent response. The concepts Roland uses in their Super Natural sound engines are not unique to Roland. Perhaps certain implementations are unique to Roland, but the same sound manipulation, synthesis, and modelling concepts are used by many vendors...

    I see what you mean, yes. But really, in this price class, given all the things the EAD10 does, I'm not surprised by the lack of proper MIDI ports. They would be great to have, but I'm assuming Yamaha had to make certain decisions to keep the device within a certain price range....

  • The comments about 4:38 came from Chris himself. I'm not here to criticize Chris, but I agree with him that were this a production track, a few areas need some cleanup / punch-in. I love the ideas, technical musicianship, and overall musicality Chris injects....

    Pintech's ConcertCast pads are made out of metal (titanium and aluminum). The shells are shallow, open-ended at the bottom, and make no noise whatsoever. The shallow depth actually helps reduce sonic noise. If anything, the stick sound of these pads is quieter than Roland mesh pads. This is largely...

    The examples you've given have significant numbers of single zone components. Plus, your sixth input (extra 3 zone cymbal or drum pad) only works for multiple zones with a Yamaha cymbal or Yamaha pad. For standard piezo-piezo pads that's a single zone input, too.

    Re MIDI. The EAD10 has...

    The bass drum is triggered from a separate output of the kick unit, which requires a trigger input on the EAD10. Thus, you don't get bass drum triggering for free because both the microphone output and bass drum trigger output must be connected. With this in mind, I think you'd be stretching things...

  • Sometimes my computer doesn't like streaming videos from YouTube. I downloaded your video and watched it again from local storage. The audio sync is much better now. I think that's what was throwing off the groove for me. You mentioned timing inconsistencies around 4:38. Yes, I noticed those and...

    I agree there are sometimes exceptions, but generally physics dictate the faster ones plays and/or the more quietly one plays, the more you'll need to switch to smaller, lighter joints and muscle groups....

  • Chris,



    This is super helpful. Thank you!

    Recently, I switched to matched grip, open-handed playing. I still use a right-handed kit, but I position the hi-hat further forward to accommodate left hand lead. I can still play close-handed with this hi-hat placement,...

  • Chris,

    This is the third video of yours I found this evening. It's very enjoyable listening to you play and useful watching your technique, too. I've got a technical question for you. At the 30 second mark and at various other places in this video, you play single-handed sixteenth notes...
