Re: Favourite Rudiments

I definitely love the paradiddle-diddle, and Swiss army triplets. And normal paradiddles are good, too.

Re: Mom n Pop Music Stores vs. "You Know Who" Stores

Yeah, I personally love mom and pops stores, especially when you get to know the owners and they randomly give you money off your purchase.
Also the used equipment deals you can get are sick.

Re: For the jazzers...some recommendations please.

You are a man after my own heart - Monk and Mingus.

One of my favorite Monk albums is Underground. You also mentioned Wayne Shorter. One of my favorite albums of his is Speak No Evil.

Re: Favourite part of the kit

I kind of view my drumset as a car. A car can have different engines, rims, wheels, color, etc., but at the end of the day it is still a car and all of them do the same thing: drive.

Yet, I do...

'Custom' Drum Set

I am thinking of getting some sort of small jazz kit. I have researched various options, and have finally decided to 'make' my own.

What I mean is that I don't have the money to spend $3,000 on...

Re: New Cymbal Ideas?

I think those are some sort of FX cymbal Zildjian makes. Certainly a lot cooler than a frying pan...

I always thought (as an experiment) to make, like, a 'bastard' cymbal. Have one straight...

Re: The pros and cons ... or the cons of pros

So, I was also considering playing drums for a living after college, but it seems like I would have more freedom and fun playing the drums if I had a steady income outside of drumming. Is this true...

Re: Looking for Ska, learning material

If you are looking for a punk ska band, then Streetlight Manifesto is perfect. Not only are they punk ska, but they are incredible. If you are not looking for punk ska, then look into Five Iron...

Re: Traditional Vs. Matched

Re: Are Metal Drummers over-rated?

Re: Traditional Vs. Matched

[INDENT]Yeah, I guess I did come across as a little harsh, but I meant was that it seems foolish to me that some drummers don't even give traditional a shot. I just think more drummers should get...

Traditional Vs. Matched

Most drummers seem to play one of the matched grips, usually the american grip, whenever they play drumset. I think that is their folly. Traditional (in most cases) is better, at least I think so. ...
