Re: Anika Nilles

She is a great drummer, and tasteful at it too.

I think if I had a make-out session with Anika and then Emmanuelle Caplette, that I could die a happy drummer LOL.

Re: Tuning toms to octaves

I do a very similar thing and also works out to be where my toms sing the best.
10 and 14" and kick - D
12" and 16" - G or A
Snare = G#

Re: Is Dennis Chambers ill?

I know, right? The man's got raw natural talent indeed. I try to practice/mimic some of his stuff and my limbs are like "I can't do that yet" lol.

Love you Dennis, see you again!

Re: Favorite Song to Rock out To?

Yea, if you mean all-out, sweat-inducing, heart-pumping songs to immediately drum to (including air drumming!) then it would have to be some of these:

Deftones - Swerve City
Pearl Jam - Blood...

I have a 4-year old Saturn kit (Maple/Walnut) that I gig with 2-3x a week. As others have said, it is a pretty good bang for the buck. The lacquer finish is durable and amazing looking, shines up...

Re: Do you play the drum part exactly the same each night?

This is exactly how I play as well for my covers band. The only thing I have free reign to improvise on is a 3-4 minute drum solo in our Led Zeppelin medley (in Bonzo fashion of course!).

Re: Sonor Players Kit from Sam Ash

Cool little thing, I am happy about the drum sizes they chose. The finish looks good and everything looks well-constructed.

Re: Todd Sucherman here!

Todd, your studio/live sound, coupled with your gear breakdown in your DVDs, has persuaded me to plunk down some coin for an Audix DP5a mic pack.. I look forward to getting it in a few days!
