Re: World's first bionic drummer

Deja vu.
I was at a Guitar Center the other day and spotted a drummer with a missing left forearm playing.
He had the stick taped to his stump and was actually quite adept at laying down a groove.

Re: Hand goes numb

As pointed out ,it could be a nerve issue that is being aggravated over the years by playing.

Re: 24x14 vs 22x16 - Can't Decide!

I like the 22 as it gives you more flexibility in tom mounting.

You can go lower with a 22 ,you can't with a 24.

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

Re: DFO hacked again
