This also made me laugh: badly set-up drum kits.

I once went to this instructional session by a professional drummer, and he said there's two incredibly common problems he sees with drummers. One is that if you give them specific instructions to play this one specific, 4/4 time beat, until you tell them to stop, they can't, because they won't resist the urge to throw in a fill somewhere.

Second is that they set up their kits not for optimal playing, but to look cool to the audience.

I learned to play drums and percussion in a brass band. I read sheet music. I play what's written on the sheet music. If you tell me to play 4/4 until my arms drop off, I can do that.

I've even had to deal with drummers who can't do what they're told for five minutes during the soundcheck. "Give me the kick drum. No not the snare, the kick drum. That's it, the one with the pedal. Did I ask you to stop? Keep playing. No, I don't want to hear the rack toms yet, I still want you to give me the kick. Before I come over there and give you the kick..."

I really don't miss doing PA hires. Not even a little bit.

It's like doing a workstation ergonomics check: when your feet are on the pedals, your thighs should be horizontal, your calves should be vertical. Your hi-hats should be at the height of your elbows, the batter skin of the snare should be an inch above your thighs, and the cymbals should never be higher than your shoulders.

Every part of a drum kit is adjustable, and all modern kits have memory locks, so you can put the stands back exactly where they were the last time. It's almost impossible to get it wrong. Unless you're a drummer, obviously...

Hah! I did a report on one of them. Unimaginative names, some of them have. Something like Western Territory. And I think there's a Queensland in there too. I'm pretty sure there's at least one or two more Compass Point Direction Territories as well.
