No prob.. I had the video embedded so you don't actually have to go to the channel. but I understand.

I can get my snare to sound pretty good.. This is just another thing for guys to try if they want.. everyone is always looking for a different sound.

I can get my snare to sound how I like as well. but when guys are against moongel, or rings, or anything at all.. they usualy like that ping with the overtones... for the type of music I play that usually isn't the sound I want.. and with a tight head I have to use something.

Hi there,

   My name is Brandon and I live in Montreal,  Canada. I see a few Montreal-ites here, which is pretty cool. I am the drummer & bandleader for a 7-piece Hard Bop group called B's Bees. We've played at the Montreal International Jazz Festival, and currently have a residency at a local jazz club where we play 2-3 times per month.

 Check us out here:

   We'll be releasing our first album this coming March.
I have no need for that product. I can get any snare sound you want without it.  ;)
I agree, Tim.

For those who have not read or seen my review of the KickPort from some years back (I was one of the first to review the product), here's my review:


Scott, you are welcome to post your personal findings, etc., here on the forum, but please don't use this platform to drive traffic to your website or YouTube channel. Thank you.
I see no redeeming qualities in carving a hole in my snare batter head (or resonant head) and inserting this "solution in search of a problem".

If one wants more bottom head, mic it and flip the phase.

If you want more snare sound and most of your gigs only give you a top head mic, use a 42 strand strainer.

Years ago when I was at home as a young fellow I can honestly say that about all I heard was Krupa,Buddy Rich recordings lol.The brother has studied their styles for well over 40 years now .He played for Gary Buck for quite a while in Calgary.He says the highlites of his career in Canada was being on stage with Loretta Lynn,Charlie Pride and Don Williams.He also played for Skeeter Davis one of the times she was in Toronto.He was seventeen then.
He is working with the grand daughter but not as a teacher would.

I agree with Don.

Crossing the hands is only because of equipment limitations and/or dominant limbs. Break free from the limitations and one can certainly do more with their playing.

It all comes down to being willing to work hard and develop the necessary technique. Obviously the majority of drummers throughout history where not willing to do this, so they cross-over.

I often times use a remote HiHat position almost directly in front of me, so that solves a lot right there (ie. equipment limitation). I also play open position for a number of styles. I can't do that, with confidence, when playing jazz ... yet.  ;)

Playing open handed is a good thing. Your brother is right. If you'd like to see a pro drummer doing it, youtube Simon Phillips.


Best of luck!
