Re: R.i.P Vic Firth

Before I played drums, I bought a Vic Firth pepper mill (which I still use to this day). When I started playing drums the first sticks I bought were Vic Firth 5As. First thing I thought of when...

Re: I'm at a loss. I can't tune a drum to save my life.


Sometimes it's just necessary.

That being said... I've heard lug lube mentioned in other threads... So, what it a good lube to use on lugs? I have some that are kind of crusty and could...

Re: "Bum Wrap" Drum wraps

Rather than start a new thread, I thought I'd just add to this one...

Anyway, I had a Pearl Vision Birch snare, the wrap on which I couldn't really stand. Cream. Yeah, just like it sounds. It was...

Jazz is a beautiful thing. Jazz drumming is incredibly fun, frustrating, and glorious all at once. It can seem easy, but is incredibly difficult.

That being said, jazz drumming will make you a...

Re: Drums and beer at my first ever band tryout!

I drink like a fish, but never when I have a gig or at rehearsal. I've found that I simply can't keep accurate time if I've had a beverage or four. I've had folks tell me, "dude, you need to learn to...

Re: Independence vs learning set patterns

I just started the Chapin book... like on the first set of exercises, just started... Anyway, I've kinda had to go about how I learn the patterns differently than I would, say, some beat in a rock...

Re: Importance of a good drum throne?

I agree, too. When I first started playing, I was using some cheap throne that came along with my first drum set. I figured "ahhh, what's the difference? It's just a stool." Whenever I would...

Re: Going on Tour would like some advice!

While I've not been on the road as a musician per se, I have been on a tour as support (merch, etc.). It was a lot of fun, and absolutely epic memories (whatever wasn't erased, that is).

We had a...

Re: Too Old To Seriously Take Up Drumming?

43 here, started six months ago... In a band now, and can't stop. Sure, I wish I did this 35 years ago, but heck, it is what it is... Playing is so fun, practice is a pleasure, and that's the key to...

Dunno... God could have walked into the room, but if he was uninvited I would have told him where to go...

Re: Should I start out with electric drums?

I'm still relatively new to the drumming thing, having played bass (and other instruments) for over 30 years. That being said, this is how I've been approaching my drum learning…

Re: The tip jar

As others have mentioned, I too kinda think it depends on the venue/situation. A band I played bass in a while back generally didn't put one out, but sometimes people from the crowd would come up and...

Re: Weird problem (e-kit vs. a-kit skills)

I'm in a similar position… I practice at home on a Roland e-kit (otherwise my neighbors, girlfriend, and cats would kill me). When I go in to my weekly lessons, it's all on an a-kit. I've found that...
