Re: Do you own (or want to own) both acoustic and electric kits?

It depends on your personal situation. Personally, I get a lot of use out of my electric kit. It's not even a particularly good one, it's a 15 year old pintech kit. First, I use it to practice since...

I guess whether or not these are unpopular is based on perspective...

Re: When you're in charge, which songs ...

No Nickelback. No Creed. Also, every cover band I've rehearsed with always wants to play these songs and I'm sick of them:

Re: Irony?

The people that emulate him and would want a signature snare drum of his are probably high school age. Most don't have $1899 laying around.

Re: What do you think about Casey Cooper (COOP3RDRUMM3R)

Did you ever notice.....

....that at any given time, there are at least twice as many people viewing the drum gear forum as the general discussion or the techinique forum?

I just feel like it's an interesting commentary...

Re: Sound absorbing blankets

My practice space is an 11' x 14' shed on a concrete slab. I surrounded the walls with audimute blankets after I soundproofed the shed. They work well for deadening the room and sound control. They...

Re: Showmanship behind the drums!

When it comes to showmanship, I've always been a fan of Shannon Larkin of Godsmack. He's not over the top and he's very fluid.

All I know is that if you're going to go big on showmanship, you'd...

Re: Most Under-rated Drummers

You hit the nail right on the head. Matt Abts is KILLER. He can jump from one style to another with amazing ease, and he's so relaxed when he's playing. Gov't Mule is one of the great rock bands of...

Re: Stewart Copeland

I'm a big fan of Copeland. He's one of the most creative guys in the rock genre, and he can take a simple rock beat and expand it into something awesome. I love the beat to Walking on the Moon. First...
