Oh I see, one of those things that makes you hear a beeping sound for a whole day. I'll consider it. Wink

Haha! The click from Hell!  Cheesy

Yep, as painful as it might be, you must ultimately be the metronome.
In a way, the plan is not to hear it. If your on time, you should be hitting things at exactly the same time as the click (if your doing that kind of tight beat).

Actually, ignore that, cos that does get confusing...
I suppose all you can do is have the metronome through sound excluding head phones (Vic Firth do a nice pair).

Or possibly a better idea, play quieter! Practice your dynamics as well as your timing!

lol I never thought about playing quieter. It's too logical to pop into my heavy-metal brain. I understand what you're saying with it not being supposed to heard if you time it exactly right, but I still can't hear it when I play out of time. If a metronome truly is supposed to be a pain in the ass, I suppose I'll use it even if I find it annoying and inefficient for my learning. I'll check out the Vic Firth metronome sometime, but I'm not just gonna throw the one I have now away.

Ok, that makes sense. I guess I'm kinda stupid for thinking a metronome helps you with play-along tracks. I also don't get how the hell you can hear the click track if you play fast unless you have it jacked up to an amp. Right now I feel like the metronome might have been a waste of money.

Right now it's just play-along tracks, but I'll probably be in a band soon with a very good drummer who's interested in trying out guitar while I drum. I got an amplifier but there's no imput jack on the metronome.

I've found it very difficult to use while listening to music at the same time. So do I just play the beats without the music and eventually I'll get a good sense of timing encoded into my spine without having to use the metronome?

I've thought about whether it's good to read the stuff I play instead of trying to remember it. It feels like I'm not learning as much when I keep reading it while I'm playing. I think you can still develop a good ear for the drumming even if the writing is there to help you out.

Thanks. My drumming's going pretty well. I often find myself playing too fast though.

I've played drums for 3 weeks now and I got the handle of some basic rock beats from a book. So now I wanna start learning songs. I figured AC/DC would be a good start because the music is awesome and the drumming sounds simple. Can you just tell me what all the stuff means using this song as an example? I couldn't find anything from the book.

i'm not that pushed for cash, just always thinking conservative. i'll keep it and if i find out i dont have any use for it, i'll sell it then. thanks for the help. So anyway you can get back to your topic now lol.

I won't find a double pedal cheaper than the single pedal I'm supposed to get. The single pedal that comes with the set which I don't want is $59.99 (Tama Iron Cobra). The double pedal I want is $169.99 (Pearl). So I can just give them the single pedal and say I don't want it, here's $110 to finance the Pearl double pedal?
I'm sorry if I totally diverted this thread from its original purpose Embarrassed

I'm just wondering if you go a store (guitar center) can you ask them to not include the single pedal that comes with the drum set and replace it with a double pedal so that you could deduct the cost of the single pedal from the total?

Yea the DW 4002p one is what I meant. Some of them said Pacific Drums by DW so that threw me off. I'll take the Pearl one since it's the best selling double pedal on the site and it didn't get any subpar reviews. Thanks for all the help guys. With the DP402, the very last customer review with the headline DONT DO IT !! turned me and my friend away from the product.

Ok, you and my friend have me convinced. I'll go with the double pedal. That way I can buy more expensive cymbals. So with the double pedal, is it too risky to go with the cheapest one I found on this page: http://www.guitarcenter.com/shop/drums_percussion/navigation?page=1&N=100005&Ntk=GCAll&Ntt=double%2Bpedal&Nty=1&Ns=P_Price%7C0&x=14&y=17

My friend said I should take the $159.99(DW) or $169.99(Pearl) one. He also said Gene Hoglan uses a double pedal that's less than $100, but doesn't know what it is.

why not get a double bass pedal for $100 US dallers (sorry I don't know the change rate for other contries)?or are you just looking for the 2 bass drum look?
Well I just thought another bass drum was worth investing in... but thanks I should consider the pedal too.

Thanks, your advice makes a lot of sense. Wink
I should first learn how to play double bass before worrying about the sound since I'm on a budget.
I was planning to order via internet and I think that's what I'll do. I can't make an on-the-spot judgement of how well the two complement each other. I'm gonna go with the TAMA Superstar and buy an additional Tama Swingstar bass ($140 cheaper than Superstar bass). I'm assuming that they'll sound very similar because they're the same brand, am I right? Like it's probably safer to have two of the same brand? :-?

Excuse my ignorance, but how important is it to have 2 of the same bass drums?
The drum sets that come with a double bass are too expensive for me so I need to buy a separate bass drum. Does it sound awkward if they make different sounds? I would imagine it does when you play them simultaneously, but could it also be a good thing to have variety? To give an example, would a TAMA swingstar bass drum sound good with a TAMA superstar bass drum alongside it?
