  1. We (Uniform) played around with samples etc but they didn't quite work with our sound. Our piano player has a synth that plays string sounds but that's 'played' live I guess as he's physically playing the synth. It works really well with some bands and not so well with others. It's all dependant on what you're trying to achieve. As for live DJs (and I'm speaking about these incredibly irritating pricks like DJ Guetta, Tiesto etc) - I do not accept that creating an entire song on a laptop counts as a being a musician. That's someone who is good with software for a computer. Daft Punk etc are exempt from this. Milner - my missus seems to love the boy Yogi but I have yet to see him play. Really poor?
  2. Congratulations on your 500th post Graham and all the very best from me x
  3. I've heard tomato ketchup is good for cleaning but I'd never try it. Earth? In what way would that be good?
  4. I clean mine every week - I feel it removes the stickmarks and any smudges etc. And let's be honest, shiny cymbals look ace under stagelights. I use Groovejuice to clean mine as it doesn't have an corrosive in it that will remove the logo etc.
  5. Adam - while always being a fan of your work, on this occasion, I will have to decline your suggestion.
