I know there are many drummers trying to save the art of brushwork. The problem is music, itself. There isn't much requiring their use anymore. I may use my Blasticks now and then, but not brushes. The only time I use them (Ed Thigpen model) is when I mess around on the set myself.

In my whole life I never played music that would benefit from them. I love watching guys play that know how to use them.

Thank you for the kind words. You know, it isn't hard to make a drum set. If you can handle a drill you can make drums. Even finishing. It's time, but it isn't really hard. I had not used dyes before that set. I was nervous, but I practiced on some scrap veneer and it's quite easy.

I wish everybody would make a drum set for themselves and see how easy it is. People like to start with snare drums, but they are actually tougher because of more parts to install, plus snare bed. Although you can have bearing edges and snare beds cut by whoever sells you shells, generally.

I had to laugh. After some of our discussions in other threads I have to say - Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's goods. (I'll bet you knew I would write that)

It's all about being creative. I've seen them used in rock songs...
The thing about them is they've become so stigmatized instead
of the thought of them being used on a broader and wider plain
of creativity.

Now what I'd like to see is at least 5 of that array of cymbals
get hit! Jeez Louise!!! affraid

If I remember correctly Vinnie uses brushes on something done with Jeff Beck on the Ronnie Scott Club video. I know Steve Smith uses them in his bands. Most of the time, though, it seems more the lighter sound and texture of brushes being used than actual stroke patterns in modern music.

As far as my family of cymbals, in music I have played and currently play, I have lots of room for pitch variation and wide dynamics. I love accent cymbals, and chinas, and I get to make use of them. I'll post some clips on the other board and try to show examples, though I don't have anything in a group format. Just various solo stuff.
