Re: What I need

I don't bother with the expensive drum-specific headphones. I use regular ol' earbuds under a set of shooting muffs. Works fine.

Re: Can you read sheet music?

Here, ladies and gentlemen, is douchebaggery the likes of which God himself has never seen.

Re: Mid-range drums stock heads comparision and other features

I dunno, Tommy. That would require dealers to employ actual sales professionals. Do you want to walk into a drum shop and be treated like you're at a car dealership? Because that's precisely what...

Re: On teaching

Advanced students - like college-level students - must be pushed. You can't jolly them along like the 10-year-old taking lessons after school at the local music store.

Re: Mid-range drums stock heads comparision and other features

Changing heads on a new drumkit is like changing strings on a new guitar. It's a thing you do.

Unfortunately, compared to guitar strings drumheads are bloody expensive. That's why it's a pain to...

Re: Adding a Tama tomtom to a Sonor Maple kit

Re: Can you read sheet music?

Yes.



Yes.
