Re: Can we just talk Gretsch drums a bit.

If you are going to spend alot of money and you want a specific thing, why not look for a custom drum builder?. Resale value won't be as high but you'll get what you want.. There must be a builder in Sweden that does good work.. You're in Sweden? The drum world unless you have a specific shell type ...

Re: Drummers who *almost* "made it big"

If you are as talented, prepared, socially adept, and in a location that "bigger gigs" are present... You will find a gig.. If you are driven.. The reality is if you are lacking in one of those areas, you won't.... For many who you think are amazing and cool.. it's the driven part. In my e...

Re: NAMM 2018 thread!

NAMM for musicians is purely a hang,.. But it's not there for musicians.... it's there for retailers.. In Canada we used to have MIAC which was our version of NAMM.. Over time it died out as all the retailers saw the same stuff at NAMM,.. and NAMM was far larger and compaies always brought more stuf...

Re: ...The BUDDY RICH Thread

It should be the: Cathy Rich Big Band featuring Greg Potter.. Then nonone would go see it and be underwelmed... He's a good drummer... But to me shouldn't be using the name Buddy Rich... That should be reserved for actual members of his band.. Ala Buddy Rich alumni band... Also I don't think it woul...

Re: Home recording

Extra mics will help give to control to focus individual drums.. but you will still have a washed out set of overheads.. better to clean up the room then add other mics and extras..

Re: Home recording

It's not ideal in a kitchen but try and get some absorbtive stuff on the walls. 2 blankets hanging from 2 coat racks.. or whatever you can do.

Re: Home recording

Yeah gearsluts will tell you need new convertors and a real set of preamps and mics haha.. What you have sounds great,, just drop the backing tracks a bit. and turn up the kick as well.
