Re: Whats the weirdest thing you ever broke on your kit during a gig?

I just remembered another great story that I gotta pass on... Nothing was broken per se, but still left a mark...

Re: Whats the weirdest thing you ever broke on your kit during a gig?

Nearly the exact same thing happened to me about a year and 1/2 ago... We were a few song into a gig at a bar, and a local university act had opened for us.. The other drummer and I were sharing...

Re: playing drums while being sore from the gym

I started a serious cross-fit routine a few months ago, and found it difficult to sit behind the drums and play. That lasted for about two weeks, and now it doesn't bother me at all.

Re: 11 Legendary & Most Used Drum Breaks (aka samples from old funk/soul records used in hip-hop)

Thanks! I'm gonna be playing with those all week.

It reminded me of this vid I watched a while back, about the Amen Break, what is claimed to be the most widely used drum sample of all time. ...

Re: Drums - the stage prop du jour (Grammies content)

Funny. The lead singer in my band suggested we play this, so we've been rehearsing it the last few practices. I asked her the other day if she'd like me to bring in an extra floor tom for her to...

Re: Mapex @ NAMM 2014

I think "Mars" refers to the hardware line. It looks to me like Falcon, Armory, and Mars are the new hardware lines, along with the new Black Panther snares.

FWIW, I've got a Falcon HH stand...

Re: Best Mapex series?

I got the Black Panther Blaster kit (2 up 2 down) about 6 months ago, and honestly am still struck by how awesome the sound is from these drums. Plain and simple, they ROCK. The maple/walnut shells...

Re: Removing permanent marker pen from cymbal?

Not to derail the thread, but I remember reading a while back that you had something like 200+ hi-hats Bermuda, and I can only imagine how many other various cymbals.... What kind of code do you use?
