Re: Secret Weapons for the Modern Drummer

You couldn't be more right. I bought this DVD (and many others) within my first few months of learning last year (I'm 1.5 year into it now)

Re: What do you use to record for Drummerworld

short of getting a mic set for the drums, I believe the Zoom Q3 HD is the best option. It has stereo condenser mics and a good video camera.

Re: Anybody play heel down hi hat?
