Yeah so my band's drummer plays great and everything but you can't even hear the guitar. I mean you can hear it but not really amke out what its playing. He always tells me to lower my 15 watt practice amp to like 3 and then says his mom thinks its too loud when hes the loud one! He thinks drums are the only thing in a band! Is there a way to tell him that I should be able to raise me volume?

turn up when he looks away, he probably won't even notice

edit: or ask a non band member to soundcheck. That way he can't say you're too loud or too quiet.

If hes too loud and wont compromise because he thinks 'drums are the only thing in the bad' then you shouldnt have him in your band.

Turn up, and tell him that you can barely hear yourself, and he's not the only one that people want to hear.

Make a compromise that when he wants you to turn down your amp that you get to **** his girlfriend... in the ass... twice... hard.

DICK IN A BOX!

wait...

You'll have to talk with him about it.
I'd be interested in knowing what amp you use, as most models (the solid state ones), are not quite loud enough to compete with a drummer.

Either say something to him about it, or buy a bigger amp.

Quote by fender351
dude all drummers do that
just turn up the volume when hes not looking

well I'm a drummer and i dont appreciate you saying that all drummers do that because i dont. For instance, when we practice, I actually tell my guitarists to turn it up so i can hear what parts they are playing and the rhythm because sometimes i get off on our new songs that we haven't practiced much. It helps if you can all hear yourself and the others pretty equal

Record you guys playing. Use a USB headset if that's all you have or anything really. Just record you guys trying to play something and play it back to him and show him that he's just way to loud

Tell him "NO!", then smack him on the head with a rolled up newspaper and rub his nose in his snare.

yeah, get a louder amp.


or, get a gig and have the other members not show up. that way he'll be the only one there and it really will be a one man show. lets see how well he handles that

I have a friggen 100 watt Crate but my drummer doesn't like how loud it is thats what Im saying! He tells me his mom thinks its too loud so I lower my volume on the amp to like 3 and his volume stays the same/rasies so I can't hear it
#36
Dude if he isnt listening get a new drummer !!!

I mean normally drummers (i'm one) like to also hear what the guitarist is playin cause obviously you need something to play to....

If your drummer is just playing to himself, well either he listens or you get a new drummer..

Call his mom and ask her to judge who's too loud if possible
