    You can increase your beater-burying strength by sitting higher and leaning into the kit a touch. Your seat height would put your hip angle at greater than 90 degrees (which for me, used to diminish...

    This is cool. I started doing the same thing after watching Ken Sharretts videos. I like the results much more than the Tune-bots suggested tunings.

    I'm with you guys on tuning and hitting hard. I'm from the Paul Bostaph - Tom Hunting - Dave Lombardo school. Tune them up, then beat them up.

    My guess is different - I'm assuming there has to be a notable difference in volume because there is a substantial difference in weight. Just using the numbers on mycymbal.com - where you can filter...

    Thanks Bri.

    JG - you are right. Anyway, I'm looking for different pitches amongst identical models. I remember Paiste being way more consistent, and Zildjian having far more variance - which was...

    meinl pitch consistency question

    How are they, between identical crashes? One thing I liked about Zildjian is that I could order two identical crashes and the pitches would differ just enough to give me that separation. I could...

    drum monitor

    I want to have my own drum monitor for rehearsals and live shows. It will only be for kick drum. Are some self-powered monitors better at kick sounds more than others? Should i consider a sub...

    Hehe i mentioned two guitars because I guess I was trying to say we are pretty loud. Kinda dumb in hindsight. Anyway.

    I will start with the mixer and go and buikd from there if necessary. I want...

    I'm in a two guitar metal band and I've always purchased, muffled, and tuned my kick batters for attack and volume, so that my own stage volume was enough for me to monitor myself.
