No need! The kids produce more noise than the instruments.

I am completely a layman to the drums. I was told to be tuned but... no idea for the right note of each drum.
Thank you Red00 for the reference; but my small kid is just at the beginner's level. And after a month's lesson, his private teacher advises us either to rent or to buy a drum set at home for practice. So, we went to that TL piano store and whilst this was on sale (at 1/2 the price)... we were told this set is an intermediate level set and can be put on stage somehow (this is Yamaha and the model is "Stage Custom").
Kwun... we have put books and table clothes on the surface that reduces the noise level by at least more than 3/5 :-). For the time being, they are stationed in my enclosed HiFi room....... Kwun...I enjoy the bass drum !!! and if I kick the bass drum, it boasts the sub-woofer/superbass, esp for the music DVD "Eagles' Farewell Tour". :-))) ... The whole house is felt shaking.
I thought I have to learn/practice the drum too in order to inspire my kid. No badminton anymore :-(

that's about the basic drum tuning marky. u may take a look.
and also, u can buy one of these thing as a tuning assistance. it's a tension watch. pretty useful at the beginning but u would probably dump it after a year or two. coz most of the experienced drummers tune their kit by ears.

John Bonham is my fave drummer. Such a clean, booming sound.

Thank you red00 for all the inputs. They are so valueable information to me. I did show your links (in fact, there are so many solo clips) to my kid and he (and I) is so fascinated at the drummers (esp. the high hat man of his finger work).
Incidentally, my drum chair is TAMA. Thanks again.

and remember, never use the word "noise" to describe the sound from any musical instrument.
while i was playing my electric guitar or my snare drum. i would be really mad when my wife said " CAN YOU KILL THAT NOISE?"

do u guys love japanese foods? what about sashimi?
10-02-2007, 04:36 AM #451
All around: Szechuan, Hunan and Hong Kong Chinese food is hard to beat
For a quick fix or social: Japanese
For just pigging out: Korean BBQ!
For a combo of pigging out and all-around: Indo and Malaysian are hard to beat
For good taste and best health: Vietnamese
The one I'm a bit not used to is Burmese food. Some of it is oh so good, some of it is a bit "weird" and definitely exotic tasting.
Must be this panda's ABCness.
P.S. Nothing beats good bamboo, you outta try it some time.

thanks dan! bamboo is good! but i think i will try some leaves from eucalyptus trees first!

red00: thanks the advice on the "surface" thing. we will ask the teacher (today).
Hei hei: before that, he practice his druming this way :-) (pic is out of focus and underexpose because i forgot to switch back to auto mode after i fiddled around the old ai lens some time ago)

We have this while our stay in Jap. this summer :-)... the fish is still shaking there (I have movie clip on this ). One fish is not enough for our appetite... we order a second round eventually. My small boy is a sashimi and susi killer.
