    There are many things you can do like using moongels or gaffers tape but sonically they come at a cost. A really great jazz drummer in town showed me a great trick for reducing the wash of a ride...

    I have a 14x10 Roger Cambridge snare that I use in the studio. The Gibralar 8706 flat base snare stand will go low enough to accommodate that deep of a snare drum.

    How do you anticipate that? Are you beating your toms with Louiseville sluggers?

    One AKG C414 or similar large-diaphragm condenser mic in cardioid pattern 10 inches from the center of the tabla, pointed slightly toward the smaller drum. Stereo is not necessary and it will sound...

    The Roswell Audio Mini K47 KD is a mic that was specifically developed for this task. I had a chance to directly A/B one with a vintage Neumann U47FET microphone, which is the holy grail of outside...

    1920’s Duplex 2-piece Nickel-over-Brass 14x4” 6-lug snare. It has way more low-end than a 4” snare ought to have. The tuning range is insane and wide open it has beautiful complex overtones.

    If you have quality heads on the bottoms and they haven’t been on there for a years you’re probably fine leaving them. But I would replace stock heads (especially Pearl ones) because they are...

    If all else is equal, the deeper snare will have a lower fundamental tone produce more low-end. The 5.5 will be a little more sensitive. But at the end of the day the shell depth is just one of many...

    Without ear protection a kit with concert tons and a 24” kick in a concrete basement with low ceilings is easily going to approach painful SPL levels. I wouldn’t want to be in that space either. If...

    It’s best to stick to one grip and master it then be mediocre at both. Time is limited and I don’t find a different grip to be something worthy putting a lot of time and practice into when there are...
  18. Are you running a coated reso head right now?...

    Are you running a coated reso head right now? That’s a sure way to dampen the resonance of a drum. And a 2-ply on the reso will do that even more so! Try a clear ambassador.

    Got it. Ok, as an audio engineer I can offer you one completely different angle. How big is your room, and have you done any sound treatment to it? Try moving the drum to different spots in your...

    18” toms are not known for their resonance. You could try running an ambassador on the batter head. Maybe tuning the resonant head up will help. You could purchase a 3-pack of Pearl R-40 suspension...

    Great job - it looks fantastic! I really dig the INDe hardware. My Vox kit’s floor tom was retrofitted with INDe floor tom leg holders that didn’t require re-drilling. They are elegant, have minimal...

    The greatest advantage of having that many snares is that I have them set up in their sweet spot and don’t usually have to change much. If one snare doesn’t work for the song, I switch to another...

    I traded in a 50’s Slingerland Duco that wasn’t seeing much use when I got the super brass. I’m tying to keep it under 12, mostly due to not having a ton of space to store them in the studio.
