    Agop, Artisan, Traditional, Dream Bliss

    Hey everyone. I have decided to make an investment into my cymbal set. Ive been knocking around with various Istanbul agop sigs, bosphorus master vintage, zildjian etc for years. Now I want to create the perfect set for what I play with no compromise . The Istanbul sigs were a bit too dark to...

    Drum Lesson Advice

    Hey everyone. It's been years since I've been on here. Lots of traveling and playing. I've settled in Spain and relatively solidified myself in the scene in my city. I have taught Cajon before in Ireland a bit but not in any professional way. I keep getting approached to give lessons, so I'm...

    Caramel by John Grant

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gqYc9hhPSfA&feature=related Now I'm not a pianist by any right, I just learn the odd chords, and learn songs i like by ear or watching people playing them on youtube. I really love this song, but I can't seem to figure what notes he's playing in the left hand in...

    Moving to Montréal

    Man I haven't been on here in a while... Anyway, think I was last on here when I was applying to Music colleges around the states and canada, most notably William Paterson ( some might remember I posted a recording or two on here for evaluation!) . I got injured before I was to finish recording...

    Good glitch beat songs, or even better, drummers?

    I've heard jojo mayer talk about it, and I'm into guys like flying lotus. And i think I'm at the level where I should explore this stuff. Know of any drummers, or dj's who do it a lot? Now, by glitch beats I mean where bits are behind the beat, where it is just quantized " wrong"...

    Some band troubles....

    A few months ago I joined this pop rock band. Not my style, but I wasn't doing anything else at the time. After some time, the leader has invested and gotten like 10,000 euros worth of equipment and is putting in 16 hour days. He is in his 40's very passionate, and he knows this is his last...

    Cutting a cymbal and using it on a snare?

    I've seen jojo mayer play with the diameter of the snare drum covered by a cut off cymbal. Just the outside layer, maybe 2 inches or so in width. Has anyone else done this? Great sound off it! Really fat, would love to try it but it looks hard to pull off! I'm guessing you'd get a normal...

    Yoga and tendonitis

    I remember seeing Phil Maturano talking about how yoga can improve tendonitis. I am wondering if anyone has tried this. Now what I'm on about is tendonitis in the wrist. I have had it for 2 years, but finally all pain and any bad feelings have gone. But I had it for a long time, it obviously did...

    Internal muffling on gretsch stop sign

    Can someone tell me how the internal muffling works on stop sign badge kits? I think that you use the silver circles nest to the logo on the toms, but I'm not sure. I'm thinking of getting two stop sign badge toms along with a round badge bass drum. I haven't heard great things about the...

    Can 15" hi hats have a good chick?

    I currently have a pair of 15" istanbul sigs. They are great for playing with a stick, but lack the control I had with a 14" pair. Understandable, but the weak chick is something that I can't seem to get over. When playing the ride, you can hardly hear it. I tried different tightness' with...

    How much is this worth?

    Hello everyone. Next year I plan on moving to Montreal to see the music scene and try and get into it over there, but the jobs here in Cork are, no exsistant. So getting money is hard. I am thinking of selling my kit and getting a slightly cheaper one. This kit is the best you can get, but I...

    Drum teachers in Montreal?

    I won't have enough money to go to a college unless I get a sizable scholarship. So if I don't, I plan on going to montreal for the year, and see what I can do for myself. I know of Max Sansalone, and of Jacob Kaye. But it seems as though in any city like this, there would be the odd real class...

    Is there such thing as over doing it when you have good technique?

    Over the last week I have been playing on the kit for about 10 hours a day. Mostly jazz recordings then with a pop/soul band at night. I recently had my tendonitis cured after two years ( by the magic of accupuncture). But like 3 days after, I had another small problem with the other side of my...

    College audition mp3 (s)

    Hey, I'm planning on sending stuff away to william paterson next week. I have one tune done so far, but I want to put it up here to get feedback, tips, critique and maybe the stuff that could be left in if I have to re-do it. The one mustake that sticks out is at the end of the solo, but I'm...

    How does tape affect cross stick?

    I am thinking of getting some sort of tape for my sticks, it seems as thouh i can only hold onto the stick 100% when I have lotion on or have very hot hands. Getting tape might stop this. But I'm wondering whether it affects cross sticking the snare? Thats a big part of my solos, jazz playing...
