At some point, you will get it louder while still having rebound, and
for louder accents, forget
everything I said and beat the crap out of the drums!!!! seriouslyI
gave that advice because
one trick to being loud is to have a little headroom left to get louder
ALWAYS PLAYING AT 110%if you're always at 11, then dynamically
you're at one place,
but if you have room to go, say from 9 to 11, then that 11 becomes effective....
playing in a PA, you're volume is adjustedso if you're at 11, they
turn you down to 4. But if
you're at 6, then when you hit 1that comes through,because you won't
have been turned down as much, and you will seem louder! ! !
Also - If you're ALWAYS at the top, some
stuff that can't be played that loud (certain rolls, etc.) so they will
sound 'wimpy' as you drop in dynamics, but if
you start at a slightly decreased level; then play those parts hard so
stay at that dynamic those parts will also be at that level &
you will sound
stronger....Basically if the regular level is a normal rock 'loud'
will still sound strong, and you STILL have
dynamics left for accents & really
killing it ! ! [See section on proper
stick holding technique]
