Re: Songs composed by drummers

Re: Is Tama a Bad Company?

Re: Is Tama a Bad Company?

A good product is a good product. I would always prefer to get something from the original original equipment manufacturer (OOEM.... :-) ), but, ultimately I can't imagine we would know the true...

Re: How do you guys learn a song?

Re: Tempos - Too Fast?

Re: Tempos - Too Fast?

I love saying this quote in a band setting....which is a great quote....just to see the facial reactions. Very entertaining.

Because I'm a newer drummer, I find myself playing drums in less...

Re: Tempos - Too Fast?

All the time, yes. The key is to work with musicians that understand how to correct and/or be corrected. There is nothing wrong with discussing this stuff on the front end or snapping it out at a...

Re: Just in case you forgot

Some time ago I commented that I did not care for the look....I've been assimilated. They now look very nice to me.

Interestingly, this finish came up in several spots as I was searching for a...

Re: Standard DW9000 and heel-toe

Standard DW9000 and heel-toe

I'm wondering if anyone is using the dw9000 and playing a steady diet of heel toe? I ask because I've had to set mine aside since the relationship has gone sour....the heel plate tears my heel up; I...
