Re: Competition - early heads up for forum members :)

Re: An attempt at a policy change here

I think it is great. This guy is passionate about what he does and is trying his hardest to spread the word about his company. I'm sure he makes great drums, and he just wants to let people know he...

Re: Sonor Safari

I am looking to buy a jazz kit for a jazz trio I am in, as I have been gigging with my school's kit (perks of being really close with the band leader). I am considering the Safari, as well as the...

Re: A very interesting read on practicing

I agree with what was stated in the article. I do, however, disagree with the examples. Sure those may work for some, but I find I have better success if I am trying to learn something by breaking it...

Re: Sources of inspiration?

I saw Mike Mangini last year in Milwaukee. He did a clinic at a music store. It was fantastic and inspired me to practice 4 hours a day until the end of summer.

Re: OT - Band(s) I don't "get"

I really enjoy Jane's Addiction, my friend got me into them. He plays guitar and LOVES Janes'a Addiction. It's high energy, sorta heavy, sorta not, kinda modern rock!

Re: What we learn here

I have learned so much here in the past year and a half. It is tremendous, I mean, there are some things that they won't publish in magazines (like gigs gone wrong, how often you break stricks, etc)....

Re: Is Vic Firth's New Lacquer Bothering Your Hands?

I did notice that on a pair of Tommy Igoe Sigs. Almost reminded me of Regal Tip. But, I also got 50 pairs of their esthetic rejects at GC for $50, and none of them have laquer (except for the 10...

Re: Simple songs, pretty songs... difficult drumming songs?

Re: Do Drummers Actually Use Their "Signature Snare"?

Interesting point about rotating their snare collection. Because I was thinking about getting that Chad Smith snare, but I wanted to know if he actually uses it or just has his name on it. Not that...
