Re: Microphones for Drums (Vintage)

overheads: Neumann KM84

snare: EV PL11

kick: Neumann U87

I put one overhead over my left shoulder (about 1-2" higher than my shoulder) and point it to where I normally hit my snare.

Re: Calf heads for dummies ... (uh, me)

If the head says "mounted" then it's ready to go. If it is says "untucked" then it needs mounted on a wood hoop.

Like I've said a bunch of times, the Columbia calf heads are great, light years...

Re: Attention Buddy Rich experts and fans.

There's a few YouTube's with him appearing "solo" on some tv shows. Most of the time they'd have a terrible drum set for him. Almost always double toms on the kick (did they ever see him play?) and...

Re: Attention Buddy Rich experts and fans.

Because he was getting old?

Buddy had a full on big band doing gigs right up 'til he died. He never had to go solo "because he was getting old". x-mas1 That's actually funny.

Buddy was very...

Re: Attention Buddy Rich experts and fans.

In the early 90's I had copies of the homemade tapes of Buddy swearing, all the "shave off you beard" stuff that was later published in Mel's book. We were going to take the tapes and put them to a...

Re: Zildjian "Cymbal Snaps" History

I have some of those on a few stands. I bought them in the 70's.

I always found that they rattled so I wrap masking tape around them in the straight-up position and use them that way.

Re: what causes dents in a drum head ?

The old expression of pounding the sound into the drum vs drawing it out comes to mind.

It is easy to do to toms because they are very loose and you can get the angle "wrong" when you're moving...

Re: Need Help on a Paiste 602

I've attached a pic of the logo of a 20" 602 I bought used around 1981.

It's a nice cymbal and records very well. The cup is nice and it crashes pretty well - a very easy to control cymbal. The...

Re: Rogers Thing-A-Ma-Jig....... what the hell is this?

I bought a set of Stewart drums around 1970 and one of those Rogers stick holders is all I have left from that set.

They're great. I've used it with bass drum L-arm cymbal holders and it puts...

Re: Vintage Zildjian Sound

My experience with all AZ cymbals is that the vast majority are only ok at best, many are downright horrible. One out a hundred (if that) is a gem. There's lots of gems out there though. Buying...

Re: Best crash is a ride

To me cymbals that are only good for one thing aren't very good. I have a 22" ultra heavy AZ tank that most people here would hate. I love it because for chick ballads it's, to me, ultimate. But...

Re: Best, cheapest cymbals?

That's it. I'm using the same cymbals I bought in 1972. I wouldn't waste time on cymbals that aren't the best, and that doesn't mean the most expensive. Cracked old K's are the bargain. I don't...

Re: Old K question

That's one of the later ones (I'm not the day/week guy) but I think 60's or 70's. Those were the last real K's to me. The mark I've circled on the one I attached designates it. I don't consider...

Re: 60's Gretsch Snare

As far as the hoop... it would depend on how handy you are. I'd look at it on a flat surface and determine which way it needed to be bent. I'd probably mark it with masking tape. Then maybe...

Re: Best, cheapest cymbals?

Wuhan cymbals aren't for everybody, but to my vintage K-preferring ears they sound very musical. To me they are a bargain. I bought a set of 14" Wuhan hihats for $40 or so off of eBay and I...

Re: Possible new movie about the great Chick Webb

I hope they have some details about the custom drum setup he used.

I still want to know where that set is.

Re: ok, im not afraid to say it..

I like the Standards because they're underdogs. Every bit as good as the regular Ludwigs but rarer and less known, so in a way, cooler.

Re: mr roger taylor of queen

I don't think people that know him underrate him, I just don't think he's mentioned a lot.

To me he's kind of like Hal Blaine. Hal played so correctly for the tune that you didn't notice the...

I've been playing for over 40 years and just found out, to my dismay, that all the songs I've played (since '68) I played... backwards. I mean really...

Re: Playing backwards all these years

Everyone has an opinion, I don't buy that one. I think you're better off the way you are as long as your kick foot feels ok being on the right side.

In the Land of Bop you spend most of your time...

Re: mr roger taylor of queen

Roger is super underrated. His name just nearly never comes up.

Part of it is because often when you really lay down a good drum track you don't notice the drums. You only notice them when...

Re: Who made the A's?

Back in the 70's I used to write to drum companies for catalogs. I remember getting a letter back from Lennie DiMuzio with some of the Zildjian info. I'm quite sure I still have that.
