I've found myself lately switching to heel-up for some certain licks...like when I want fast and louder as opposed to heal down for the simpler stuff. I just got a new pedal so I'm wondering if/how things might change....

Wellabout the pedals i REALLY agree with you, as i've like "all", the DW (5000), didn't impress me! Comparing to the Iron Cobra (Rolling Glide) the tension, smoothness, and functionability is sooooo much better(...er...the Iron Cobra, i mean).

Nice thread man!!! Keep this kind coming!Wink

Hey guys, Also. If you'd like valuable information on double pedal drumming, speed and control check out George Kollias. You can youtube.com him and see a bunch of stuff. He's ridiculously fast and uses clean control and execution. I believe his website is www.georgekollias.com

If theirs any heels down players in here check out some videos on youtube of John Longstreth. Funky heels down technique. But he's real good at it.

Enjoy.

Very nice post, Yerfer! Wink

Yoho Yerfer,

I am one off those who are back in the drumtown and have to learn it all again. I have build my kit myself, including the shells (see where to put holes #2)but now I am trouble, because the only way to see wether the kit is good for use is to experiment on tuning. You gave that very much needed info, thanks for that.
In your second post on practicing I found ear protectors for industrial use, as seen on construction sites very helpfull.
(The ones like the old headphones, all enclosing your ears)
You look like an idiot, but if you put your mp3player headphones in your ears first, put the earprotector over that you can play along with the best musicians in the world without the need of an P.A. to be able to hear the music and not only your drums. I makes practicing fun to me.
Greetings, Koko.


actually vic firth makes headphoes like that. sound isolation. works very well. still prefer the in ear though

The vic firth sound isolation headphones are great for doing your own mix, but I sweat way too much to have those on when I'm actually playing. Use them on my mixer when i'm learning a song from a cd. I just plug everything into the board, that way it is all the same level. Plus you get to hear what your drums sound like miked.

The Vic Firth Iso. Headphones aren't that bad. As far as noise reduction, they're fine. Occasionally they slip downward and blow out my ears for a split second, and they also feel very tight on my head. Overall though, they're a great value.

As far as the actual post goes, good job on that really long explanation. After reading this, I found out I want more of a "click" than a "thud" out of my kick. I'll look out for wooden beaters.

Oh yeah, earlier in this thread I heard something about oil heads- I know Evans has oil heads, but does remo sell and of them? I hear they have a great attack and very little sustain.

There's the link to the Pearl Drum Forum where some of the "more knowledged" know about the drum heads and everything about drums... Look at Post #10. They address the oil concern.. I hope it helps you. Just was on the top of my head.
