Hey all!

We just started band practice and have a terrible problem with our snare drum...
When I play with my electric guitar the snare drum seems to buzz - and buzz a lot!!

How do I solve this problem!
and...What would be a good setup when practicing (I mean - where should we put the drums, the amps and mics....so that we don't get lot of feedback)

tnx all
How would you like to be an egg? You only get laid once. It takes 4 minutes to get hard, 2 minutes to get soft. You share your box with 9 other guys. But worst of all: the only chick that ever sat on your face was your mother. So cheer up...

#3

the only thing we can come to is that its just not a good drum
Joey! Watch your speed!

My drummers snare buzzes from my bass all the time, but when we start playing, we play loud enough that you cant really hear it.

Loosen them, or put a thin strip of tape over the metal things under the snare, it'll make the snare sound like shit but it'll solve your problem.

that plus try turning your amp away, but its a natural thing of sound waves, so theres not much to be fixed

make loud howling noises and throw your feces at them whenever they bring it up, I suggest that your GF does the same.

That sometimes changes the sound of the snare, you can't really do anything about except deal with it

either turn the snare off (There is a lever on the side to turn the snare off.), or but a remo ring.

the reason it does that is becuase anytime a drum head is tightened it is actually tuned to a note, most drummers dont know what it is, they just tighten it till it sounds good. you just happen to hit the frequency that the drum is tuned to.

yea, the rings stop the overtones on the drum head.

Bitching about a snare drum that buzzes is like bitching about a bassist that isn't very good.

It happens, it always will happen, just get over it.

snares usually do that, the only thing that stops it is if you turn the little thing on the side which turns the snare off and loosens the bottom, but since you need to use the snare, you won't hear the buzzing once both guitars and drums are playing.
I'm so damn jealous of myself.

yeah, it buzzes because of the sound of the guitar hitting the little chain things underneath, the thing that tightens the snare. it's normal. there really isn't any way to get around it, unless you have the drums in a cage with really good soundproofing or something.

if the buzz is a solid wave then you're okay, but if it wavers, smack one of those fools in the head and teach them how to tune their shit
