Thank you for the feedback! I'm trying to work on developing my solos more after listening back, to save the more showy stuff for the climax of the solo.

Re: How many cymbals have you cracked/broken/split in your drumming lifetime?

When I was first starting I had gone through some really cheap cymbals (i'm talking like 30 bucks here), and just because of the quality they would crack very easily. So i'm thinking about 3 or 4.

Re: How often should I replace drum heads?

When you absolutely have to (meaning if it breaks or it's just so flat and toneless), and if you can scrape up the extra money before tours or something and recording seshes, it always helps.

Re: Practicing till fatigued

that makes sense, you don't wanna overdo it and on the quest for speed, a good break is good so your muscles can sink in that strength and memory.

Re: Looking for "extra special" double bass pedal mastery

Check out Derek Roddy's book, not only is it good for metal grooves and blasts, but your bass drum consitency and speed will improve and your independence/interdependence will as well.
