    Stick sizes

    I've never understood the numbering of drumsticks. Is there a website or something somewhere that shows a chart of specs for 5A, 2B, 5B etc... Sorry if this is a noob question but all the choices have always confused me.

    Coated Resonant Heads

    Anyone else use coated heads on the resonant side? I've been using J1 etched heads on my resos for a few months now and it makes them really easy to tune and takes out some of the unwanted ring while not completely killing the sustain.

    "Tron" is the first finished track from the latest in the series of Whitehall Sessions recordings. (3rd) Basically, four of us get together (Rhodes/synth, Guitar, Bass, Drums/Toys) about once a year, set up a few microphones, and ease our way in and out of a 80-or-so minute "jam". Then we cut...

    Session drummer advice

    How do you come up with a fee? In the studio - Is it based per song or per entire performance? Live - Flat rate or by the hour/time slot? As you became more experienced did you up your price? I'm getting myself into a situation where I need to throw out a number. I don't want to be...

    Gibraltar "Stealth" Hardware System

    Does anyone have one of these for the snare side? (Or at least checked one out) I've always been interested in a rack for transport and setup purposes but I just think it would look silly for my small setup. I think this Gibraltar Stealth system may be the answer for me but I just worry that...

    One Ton

    It's a new track I just put up on our myspace. Check it out at Tell me what you think. (Sorry in advance, no acoustic drums on the track)

    Anyone use one of these on Electric Drums? I thought it might be interesting (though I don't have electric drums). I'm using one for a loop on one of my songs for live replay.

    New Setup

    I took some pictures so I could remember how I set up my modified kit. I decided to put them up just for giggles. I'll be using this setup on the first (and maybe only) Space Lounge show on October 6th.

    Splash Hats

    Anyone using splashes as high hats? What's a good combo? I'll be playing with a new arrangement using a 16" kick, 10" jingle/8"timbale snares, and an 18" floor. I want some fairly inexpensive "mini-hats" to go with it.

    A Wide Pocket

    I've been doing a little bit of gigging with a local band. After the show, amidst the routine post-show comments "good job" "awesome set".... I have heard at least twice from two different people that I have a WIDE POCKET. I understand it as a compliment however that's where my understanding...

    It's long overdue for my snare to be cleaned up and reheaded. I took it apart today and cleaned it real well (Kolstein's Instrument cleaner) and man was it dirty. There were also two "open seams" where it looks like the drum took a hit (very possible in my earlier years) or was tuned too tight...

    Ludwig Rocker Elite

    I bought a Ludwig Rocker Elite about 10 or more years ago when I was a young buck and didn't care about things like construction, bearing edges.... Now I am between a rock and a hard place trying to find said info anywhere. I like the kit a lot so I guess it doesn't matter, but I'd like to...

    Rims: What's the Difference?

    I see that like every other accessory, there are multiple types of rims and hoops for drums. Can someone tell me the advantages or disadvantages of the different types? (i.e.- double flanged, triple....)
