I'm lucky (plus I have a good day job) cuz, I practice with my V-Drums, through to head phones when others are around or sleeping and then no one gets bothered but me Smiley

but when no one's in the basement or nearby, i'm playing my acoustics, mic'd, through a mixer and i use IEM's (with a built in limiter to try and preserve my hearing) and just play as load as i want (no neighbors too close) Wink

But, back in the day (when i was in my twenties and unfortunately didn't care about my hearing) i used to do the same thing, stereo cranked, head phones on, one ear exposed  Grin

I need two overheads.

Just for practice and gigging (maybe for gigging Smiley) - and I cant spend a lot.

No, real 'high-end' recording going on here, just for fun & practice

anyone suggest a cheap, decent pair of overheads?

(and yeah,yeah,yeah....cheap & decent are usually not in the same category)

Neil Peart - is my all time fav

but all you guys are right.....

you gotta take something from all of them.

Gene Krupa to Lars - they all give us all a little something we can use

i mean, yeah the are now rules and yes there are.....

listen to a metronome for the tempo, and feel it in your gut

play with the rest of the band and when you're all groovin'.....well i guess that's one way to look at it

 Wink

p.s. i hope this helps

ps.s. tryin to also get my # of posts up

you said:

I have been playing drums since I was 6 (I'm 32 now) but haven't had a great deal of recording experience.  I have done some recording lately and have tried using a click track which I got on with OK, but I feel my drumming could have been a bit looser.  I was pre-occupied with being on the click.  Does anyone else have this problem, or will practice help me be less 'mechanical'.

I was just curious, what particular click device are you using? I've been experimenting with the one on my V-Drums (which is OK)....

anyone? what metronome would you suggest:

for Live gigs?

for studio?

anyone, anyone.....

bueller, bueller.....V O O D O O....vooooodoooooo Grin

no its not for everyone, but ya know what, even at my age i'm learning something new in drumming every day, especially with a double bass....(i use a single bass drum with a slave pedal)

i've got an Axis long board set up I bought off of ebay last year, it was a good deal, I love em.

what i've checking out is Modern Drummer, September 2006 issue, page 118 - Jason Bittner's double bass crash course.... it starts off easy and works toward harder, you should check that out, see how you feel, and then maybe that will help you to make your decision.

Ya know, I use only the single (right) pedal over 80% of the time, who's to say you can't have a slave and use it only occasionally until you get used to it

Well, ya know, not everyone can be as cool as drummers and have good taste in music. People who don't play an instrument are usually our audience. I think i'd rather play for non-musicians than musicians (usually) because they would probably be less critical.... Smiley

you know i keep finding good (and sometimes even great) music out there, all the time, i'm amazed at what you can find (just on the internet) if you go looking for it.

check out acid planet.com.....some of the stuff there is unreal.

dude, keep trying to convert the non-believers one un-musical person at a time.
