The Ultimate Drum Solo

Tuesday, July 14th, 2009

Book this band

Essential reading for any amateur drummer Ever wondered
why some drummers kits sound amazing and others sound terrible?
Want to make your drum kit sound sweet on the live stage? What
follows is what i think are just a few of the things you need to
do to have a glitch free gig with a great drum sound that blends
in with the rest of the band.

Drum Matt – The first thing you need to remember when
packing the van and heading to the gig is a drum matt, something
to put the drum kit on to stop the kick drum sliding across the
slick wooden floor of the stage. This can be a piece of old
carpet or a professional one from any of the big hardware
suppliers, the later will cost more than the old carpet you
might find in the cellar and so I recommend you save your money
for more important items and use some old carpet.

Well Tuned Skins – Buying new skins for your kit on a
regular basis is important part of having a quality sounding
kit. I would recommend re-skinning your kit before every
recording session or every 3-4 months (depending on how often
you play/can afford). Buying the correct skins is also very
important. Don’t just buy the cheapest in the shop, do some
research in to the different types of skins and how they sound.
Think about who your influences are and see what skins they are
using try and pick a model that suits the style/sound of your

The tuning aspect of the kit is as important as the choice of
skins. There are plenty of articles online explaining how to
tune a drum kit so I’m not going to go over it hear. Just
remember if you want your drums to sound big and slappy or high
and ringy on record and through the PA the engineer cant do that
from the mixing desk, you must make them sound like that. If the
kit sounds the way you want it to before its mic’d up it will
sound amazing when its going though the PA.

Cymbals – For me cymbals cause the biggest problems when
mixing a band in a small venue. In a standard rock band drums
are the only thing that cant be turned up/down, therefore the
volume of the other instruments must me mixed around the volume
of the drums. The issue i have is that allot of cymbals are
played so loud that it becomes impossible to mix the rest of the
band around them without puncturing everyones eardrums or worse
blowing the PA! This means that most engineers have to mix the
band with the cymbals much louder than anything else.

If your not sure wether your cymbals are coming across too loud
and masking everything at your gigs try asking the engineer or
an experienced friend (who isn’t going to lie and tell you
everything sounded great) if they think you play your cymbals
too loud and they covered the sound of the rest of the band. Now
i cant simply tell you to play quieter, non of my articles will
will ever tell you to change the way you play. There are a few
things i think you can do to take the volume of the cymbals down
to a reasonable level for a small venue.

1 – Try and avoid the big expensive Zildjian, yes all the big
bands use them and they do sound great on a recording but Im
talking about when your playing in the upstairs room of a small
bar to thirty people. Buy some Sabian Pro Sonix or Paiste, they
still sound good and wont completely take over the sound of the
entire band.

2 – If you still find that the cymbals are too loud try using
some hotrods. They do change the sound of the kit slightly (and
other drummers may think its uncool) but they also lower the
volume of the drums and cymbals making the experience for anyone
in that small venue much more enjoyable (and more likely to
stick around and watch).

Finally – There are plenty of other tips Ill be writing
about in these hubs in the future as i think of them and as they
crop up at gigs. I do lots of live href=””>PA & Engineering work so
whenever I see a good idea on the stage ill pass it on to you
guys hear to please subscribe to my feed.

If you have any other ideas of thoughts on what ive said Id like
to hear them as i havn’t put these ideas to many drummers so
would like to hear what you think.

Live Band Video UK

Tuesday, July 14th, 2009

The internet has become the most important invention of the
modern era! You would think it’s the automobile, television,
ultrasound or even the space shuttle. No, it’s the internet!
More people surf the internet in more countries then actually
own automobiles. It used to be that the popular discussion was
how may televisions the average family owned but now its how
many computers. It’s no wonder that a large portion of the job
sector has gone to the internet over the last fifteen years and
it’s no wonder that every person on the planet has secrete
dreams of becoming the next big thing on the internet.

Countless people have been able to develop loyal fan followings
on social networking sites like you tube like a certain obsessed
Brittany Spears fan! He was able to obtain is several minutes of
fame and even secured a reality series on cable television. The
new lead singer of Journey was observed by the band on MySpace
and was immediately thrust into the spotlight as the group’s new
lead singer. In the era of unedited news that gets delivered at
record setting pace it’s no wonder that everywhere you look
you’ll find someone willing to step into the shining light of

So you want to be that person? MySpace is played out and you
don’t feel like learning “The flight of the wounded bumble bee”
on guitar to show the Youtube world that you are the next Nuno
Bettencourt? Instead of going the route of “over played police
chase” save yourself a few years of prison time and figure out
how to maximize live event video streaming. This is the wave of
the future. As “reality” gets put back into the hands of real
people and artists take control of their creative outlets from
the historically narrow-minded and greedy promoters you’re going
to find that live event video
will become the must have medium on the internet.

Rock bands have already begun to use closed circuit broadcasting
to share their live concerts to people around the world and the
NFL has successfully broadcasted their games via live stream to
theaters in several cities. The wave of the future is already
here and it’s time for you to figure out how to use it to find
your place in internet history!

It won’t be long before you turn on your computer and see banner
ads for live concerts, television and historical events that
will be broadcast in high definition right to your computer.
It’s up to you to find the creative source to make your mark.
Once it becomes the must have item there is little chance you’ll
be able to ride the wave to the bank and then you’ll be left
looking for the next big thing.
