    That’s awesome Katharina! And good on your teacher for the suggestion, it’s so much more practical for you as a player to just play open handed instead of having to switch the kit around entirely every-time you play a show. I’m glad to hear it works for you!

  • Greetings Ben!

  • Grant replied to the topic Snare blare in the forum Gear Talk 3 years, 6 months ago

    Hey again Leslie!

    I definitely relate to the issue you are having. There have been many times where no matter what I do to a snare drum, I can never get the tuning where I want it. You did mention that where you hit the snare drum has been affecting the sound you are getting, which does not come as a surprise to me. Some snare drums just sound…[Read more]

  • Wow Katharina! What a great life story to hear, very cool. Congratulations on the new band!

    Hey Leslie!!
    It’s great to meet you. I totally get where you’re coming from, I have this problem all the time, it’s super normal. Stephen literally just released a video about this, couldn’t have better timing. I’ve attached it HERE, feel free to take a look and let us know if this helps! I definitely think it will. Talk soon Leslie!

  • Grant replied to the topic Introduction in the forum Introduce Yourself 3 years, 6 months ago

    That’s awesome Sangam! What’s your insta handle??
    I totally get where you’re coming from bud, I had to take some time off from the drums when I was in college, it was really frustrating not making the progress I wanted to. However, it was a great opportunity for me to be able to reset once I returned to playing a bit more, and really analyze…[Read more]

  • Hahahahah don’t we all!! Yes $900 for a brand new kit is a great price in my opinion. Let us know when you pull the trigger!

    Greetings Melvin!

    Welcome to the shed my friend! Ah Australia what a beautiful place. My wife and I are always talking about taking a trip there whenever we have the time, I’ve heard it’s wonderful.

    You are very correct, it’s never too late to dive in and start playing the drums! In fact, I think it can be better to wait until life is less…[Read more]

  • My goodness, both of those kits are beautiful, but one definitely breaks the bank much more than the other haha. Great choice on buying through amazon as well, they have great programs and rewards, so I usually buy gear through Amazon and Sweetwater as well.

     

    Are you looking to do the 8, 10 , 12, 14, 16 22 configuration for the toms and kick?

  • That’s actually super interesting to hear!! Heights has always been something I wish I could overcome but just never could. Also, what kit are you looking to get? Are you sticking with Tama?

  • What is up Dylan!! Welcome to the shed my friend, we are so happy to have you with us! First off you are correct, Stephen absolutely LOVES to teach.
