Romain Goulon

How about Romain Goulon? He's both fast and tricky, his blast beats are extremely controlled and he seems to have excessive power with ultra-fast double bass (as seen here:...

Re: HellHammer (Jan Axel Blomberg)

Hellhammer is absolutely amazing!

Does anybody know if he's using Axis's EKIT triggers for the bass drums or just regular rim-mounted triggers?

The ddrum artist inflation

Does anybody know what the reasons are for so many huge names in metal drumming abandoning their previous endorsement company (and Pearl is the most affected in this respect, I guess) and switching...

Re: Derek Roddy here!

Yes, it definitely helps, because in this case 220 for the feet is still a "very fast" type of speed and consequently we don't have to have additional practice sessions to get up to 300 if we want to...

Re: Derek Roddy here!

Hi, Derek! I guess you're the first voice that I should listen to as far as extreme metal drumming is concerned, so I'm just going to ask you a rather indiscreet question:
are the double bass parts...

Re: Steve Smith

Concerning the topic of using the right stick model for the right musical style, I suppose Steve Smith is a great opportunity to get an idea about it, because he, more than anybody else, alternated...

Re: To cut or not to cut (a hole in the logo BD head), this is the question...

Thanks for all of the replies!
I think I am going to get some kind of a middle ground. That'd be a 6" hole in the front head, as off-center as I can, with some muffling inside the drum, but...

Re: oak characteristics?

Yes, the Yamaha Oak Customs really have a big sound, and a very professional one. And they're loud too :)) Even Yamaha presented them as "the loudest drums you ever played".

Re: Another kit

I'd go for the Yamaha kit. It's got one additional floor tom and the Maple Absolutes are absolutely stunning quality. And the Flying Dragon pedals are absolutely great too, it's worth trying them -...

Thanks for noting that!

Well, I do both - at rehearsals I only play acoustically, but live, of course, I have the drums miked. I guess I could drasically reduce the muffling to compensate for the...

Re: Wood specs?

To me, this discussion, in terms of resonance, actually goes between only two types of wood, as all the rest fall somewhere between these two (with minor exceptions): maple and birch. Maple is the...

Re: Birch bass drum question.../ pedal feel.../

What kind of a beater do you use? Because if you are using a plastic/wood/double-faced beater, just playing a standard felt beater might have a better response than that, feel-wise. I'm talking about...

To cut or not to cut (a hole in the logo BD head), this is the question...

So far I've played without any hole in the front head, but I just might get one soon. Still, before I do that, I'd like to hear your opinion about it.

Basically the sound is quite good right now,...

Re: What's inside your Kick drum?

I have a feather pillow, which really provides a nice sound and an absolutely exceptional punch. However, I think it's a bit over-muffled this way because the pillow is a bit too big. The acoustic...

Re: starcliassic on ebay? 750 dollars?

I'd call it cheap too, although they're Performers, not Maple or Mirage or whatever. Good drums, in any case. Are they new?

Re: SNARE TUNING

Ok, here's an intimate statistic question :P
How many turns do you actually crank each lug of your snare (both top and bottom)?
I'm asking because it seems to me that I'm cranking my Mapex M Birch...

Re: easy way to play odd time signitures? (need help)

It's always quite easy to play odd times if you play musically and not just for the mathematical fun of it, because you'll always have to feel and hear the beat you're playing. So when playing music...

Re: pedal spring tension

I've always played my pedals loose (Weckl kinda fashion) and that indeed makes them incredibly "groovy" and controllable. However, I always feel, when playing the pedals rather loose, that they seem...

Re: Input needed

And also, if the stick doesn't slide when you play very slow notes, try to see what changes occur at the point where it starts sliding.

Hope this will be of some use to you!

Re: Input needed

The stick might slide up for a lot of reasons. The most general advice, kind of a psychological one, would be to try to identify a balanced feel of the stick in your hand, between the fingers and the...

Re: Helpout Concept: Left foot hi-hat - time keeping

Great!
I'd also add that a nice thing to practice is splashing the hi-hats with the left foot instead of just "chicking":)) them, because it does 2 things a drummer might like: 1- it provides a...

Re: Tom Roll Help

For me, the greatest exercise so far to enable BOTH of my hands to play fast rolls between the drums was the stuff Virgil Donati taught on his "Power Drumming" video. It's about practicing each hand...

Re: mirror mirror on the practice wall

Mirror practice is excellent in general. For me the greatest advantages of playing with a mirror were evening the hands technique-wise, and also getting the movements to look better - which in turn...
