Yes, I know, we have all agreed on certain words to describe certain kinds of sound. They're still wrong, but we all know what they mean.most reasonable adjectives for sound (thin, tinny, bottom-heavy, etc) - pretty much anyone would know exactly what you were talking about.
But the inference I make from this is that the good player can sound better with the better rig, so the amp does deserve some level of credit.As far as the "where does the amp take credit over the musician" question, the answer is never. You can give a good player a $200 Chinese piece of shit amp and they will always sound better than a bad player using a $4000 hand-wired Fender custom shop anniversary triple deluxe whatever. Same theory applies to the guitars, as you know.
As a bass player, I try to be acutely aware of what the drums are doing, but I don't know jack about drums themselves. So, bore away......But you don't want to hear about technical drum stuff. I could bore you all day long, and I mean it.
Cool. So is this tambour is the note inherent in the shell? Interesting; a tamboura is an Indian fretless drone instrument, such as was used on Across the Universe (especially the version on Let it Be...Naked, which is by far my favorite of about 5 or 6 versions I have)....with the bottom tightened an octave lower (more or less) than the top, which should be tuned to the tambour of the drum. A lot of people think that there isn't a note in the shell, but there is.
Depends on the instrument I suppose. When I was mixing reggae I never miked the bass cabinet, I always took the bass direct and used the board and PA amplification (which is theoretically transparent).But the inference I make from this is that the good player can sound better with the better rig, so the amp does deserve some level of credit.
I would - I wish more sound guys had their head screwed on correctly.I must have said that a hundred times. Trust me, it will sound good.
I think you added that as an edit, so I must have missed it. Grouped more by genre that in any order of preference:You didn't answer my question about your favorite bass players.
Expecting me to say Vinnie Colaiuta, perhaps? :rolleyes: Zappa liked him well enough...I'm afraid to ask you your favorite drummers now. I can see from the bass players we have clashing styles. ;)
Didn't he just spend 20 years replicating what Tommy Ramone did?marky ramone
And of course simplicity is the most difficult thing to achieve. In any kind of art.One of the most simple things Bruford did stands out to me as one of his best ideas.
