Default Re: INTRODUCTIONS: Please Use This Thread To Introduce Yourself!

Hello, it feels I've like been meaning to take part in this forum my entire life but now is the time!

Real name? Sam
Age? 24
How long have you been playing? 14 years
Origin of user name? Take a look! :D I tried all the ones I thought would be taken and got this beauty!
Your top 5 drummers? Dave Weckl, John Macaluso, Buddy Rich, Bobby Jarzombek, Akira Jimbo - I'm not even sure if these are my top 5, but these are 5 favorites
Make of drumkit? Roland & Mapex
Make of cymbal? Roland again & Zildjian
Where do you practice? At home
Are you in a band? Yes, we're named Shellshock. We have a new album and single with music video coming out in the next few weeks
Do you play covers or originals? Originals in my band, I enjoy learning a song now and then though
What style of music? Progressive metal & progressive rock, classical, jazz
Favourite take out food? If I was to ever order one then it would probably Thai or Chinese nowadays, loads of vegetarian options with that
What country do you live in? England
One really odd fact about yourself? I can rotate my head to look at you directly backwards like an owl.
How did you start drumming? I naturally picked it up during a class exercise involving learning a basic drum beat - then I started lessons. I never had a kit at home, so from then on I used to occupy the drum room at my school as much as I was allowed, I spent my entire school life trying to weasel my way into the drum room for every morning and lunch break possible.

As mentioned in the handy questionnaire, I'm Sam. It's great to meet you all, and great to be here! I've already learnt a lot from this forum from browsing - not just in knowledge but in wisdom from people with a great deal more experience than I.

A bit more about me - I am a drum tutor from home (with my roland kit) and have also done a bit of session work. My current land lady is kind enough to let me use the garage to do lessons so all is pretty cool in this house. I'm about to have an album out with my band, spent today recording a music video for our upcoming single - with an award winning actor named Daniel Brocklebank which I'm quit excited about.

Here's a pic of my kit a Roland TD12 which I've expanded a bit. My acoustic drums are in storage right now because I use my electric kit live for Shellshock. It seems to work much better for the sound we want. This is a pretty old pic, the set up has changed to a double pedal with a bigger KD120 bass drum.

Default just joined....

41 years old. Started playing at 13 years old. Didnt really get serious about it untill a year ago....by that I mean taking lessons and really getting in depth about technique and mechanics!!!!

Influences and drum heroes are Neil Peart, Todd Sucherman, Jeff Porcaro, and a bunch of others. It would take too long to list them all.

I recently was able to purchase the type of kit I always wanted but never had the money to afford. A 6 piece Pearl Reference kit. Various K custom and A custom cymbals.

Probably going to purchase my second "pro" end kit in the near future. Cant decide if I want a Masterworks kit or a DW Collectors kit.

Anyway....looking forward to meeting lots of great drummers here and learning as much as I can.

Thanks for reading.

Welcome to Drummerworld. You have a Pearl Reference kit, and you post no pictures? Oh, the horror. Please, some eye candy, when you get the time.

Ok, got it.

The finish is twilight fade. Black hardware. These drums are absolutely thunderous. And you can see my 4 piece masters custom set in the background as well. They sound great live and its a small kit and easy for set up and playing out.

Beautiful kit. I'll guess the sizes at 20, 10, 12, 14, 16? Love the black hardware, too.
I resize all my pictures here http://www.shrinkpictures.com/ really quick and easy.

Well, I know that deal. I have 7 acoustic sets, and my Gretsch Round Badge kit ... it stays in my house. Not even "in my drum studio". It stays in my house. My beater kit, is a Yamaha Recording Custom kit. And I'd gig out with any of my "other" 5. But the Round Badge kit stay's under "house arrest".
Yeah, I've heard the Reference drums, live. Un-mic'd. Great sounding drums.

Thanks for the compliments. Yeah, I went with the ec2 heads just because that seemed to be the rage and what lots of folks were using these days.....and they sound awesome....but I may try something different soon just to see what some other heads sound like.

Gérard, welcome to Drummerworld. No need to apologize for your English .... you speak/type it waaaaaay better than I do French. But man, you break my heart .... I gotta see those drum kits of yours. Here's a resize link. It's free, fast, and easy. http://www.shrinkpictures.com/ (just like some women, I used to know).
I have a Gretsch Round Badge kit, 20, 13, 16. Of course, not in the finish you have. That is one rare kit, you have.

Default Hey everyone, just joined!

Hey everyone,
Been looking forward to getting on here finally, even if it is just on my phone for now.

I'm Chunky, 27 years old, been playing since I was 15, I love most styles of music and even the styles that don't set my world on fire I still enjoy to play and learn.
Love funky stuff, latin and reverse engineered break-beat styles but I am first and foremost a metal-er.
I play in a band called Hellraizer and we play a mix of, straight up metal, djent and pretty much all the good bits we like of all the genres.

I play a Mapex Saturn Pro, 10, 12, 14 toms, 20 kick and 14x 7 Black panther

I have coated Emporer heads on top, Ambassadors on bottoms, Emporer X on snare and eMad on bass drum

17" A custom crash (I think, I've only just started venturing away from Sabian),
18" AAXplosion crash
16" Pro Sonix china which was a spare after I broke my better ones but cuts through better live than the expensive ones! Nasty recording tone though...
18" Istanbul china, Alchemy? looks terrible, sounds amazing!
21" Sabian dry ride
7" and 10" Dave Weckl evo splashes - sounds just like him! Which is a credit to just how natural his sound is and how good that natural sound is. Doesn't make me play like him though... :(
8" AAX splash
Big and small Zil-bells
14" AAX stage hats

Gibralter rack
Iron cobra pedals, double, hats and cowbell.

An assortment of cowbells, woodblocks tamborines and 12" Tama hand hammered snare for other musical situations

I don't get out on the scene much and there isn't a great deal of drummers around me so I've always missed out on the strong drummer community I always read about in Rhythm magazine so, here I am! Hello everyone!

Chunky

Hey guys. I'm new!

Real name? Aaron
Age? 19
How long have you been playing? Running on two years now
Origin of user name? A multi-instrumental project that I started that's a little over ambitious and thus on a backburner for now.
Your top 5 drummers? Blake Richardson, guess I'll just say most youtube drummers take one spot... I don't know. I can't really choose. I take inspiration from almost everyone I hear. I know that's probably cliche, but it's true. I can't pick. Sorry.
Make of drumkit? PDP Z5s right now, but about to buy some Tama Silverstars.
Make of cymbal? Zildjians
Where do you practice? In a garage.
Are you in a band? Unfortunately not.
Do you play covers or originals? Covers mostly. Try to do originals but... I'm on my own, ha, and soloing isn't really my focus.
What style of music? Almost everything I can wrap my head around :)
Favourite take out food? Chinese :) Sesame chicken from China kitchen, down the road.
What country do you live in? United States. California. You've never heard of the city :) Smaaaaaall.
One really odd fact about yourself? Uh... Odd? I'm also a competition-winning actor, as well as a writer? Idk about odd. I can't think of "odd" facts, haha.
How did you start drumming? Kill me now, but Rock Band. My dad got it because I liked Guitar Hero, and I always just ignored the drums and pushed them on him. Then one fateful day... ha ha ha!

Thanks!

I have no idea who Mick Tucker is?

My nicknames Chunky and I'm in a band called Hellraizer.

Never even seen the movie Hellraiser! Iw Mick Tucker the guy?

I think there's even another band called Hellraiser, just spelled differently.

Impossible to pick a name no-one has! We need to extend our alphabet!

I have to say it's great to be among other drummers, spent so long in the dark I'm excitededly replying to every little post probably getting on people nerves! Lol.

Great place!

Default Hello...from Portugal!

Well, first of all, I'm sorry for my bad english. My name is Michelle Castro, and I'm Portuguese. I'm 15 yo, and I'm learning drums (or trying to).

I play guitar, sax and piano for years, and since the beginning of this year, drums. I have a cousin, now in Germany, who left me parts of his old (first one I guess) drumkit.
I'm very curious and I love music, so, I've started to try drumming a little bit, playing alongside with some Johnny Cash, or Elvis music (without real drums in those records).

I'm already on another instrument's classes, so I cant afford a drum teacher. So, I'm alone on this, but loving this. I'm a minimalist girl, and I love the drumming style of Meg White, Ringo Starr, Mike Avory... Well, I have a very small drumkit:

a 14' hihat (paiste), a 18'' crash/ride paiste, a snare, a kick and a floor tom. Just that. I have the cymbal monted on the kick, on the middle of the drumkit (well, just a little bit for the right side, close to my floor tom). I can play it as a real ride, or crashing on him. Call me innocent, but until now, I'm quite happy with this drumkit. I'm learning with internet and tutorials, playing and pratice hard, and now I'm playing with a band (well... a PROJECT of a band).

Sorry all this wall of text. Any tips and ideas, are wellcome :)

Welcome to Drummerworld. You have the essentials. The 4 voices. The kick, snare, hats, and ride. Most all your drumming will be with those 4 elements. Rack toms, floor toms, crash, splash, and china's, etc., all that stuff is just icing on the cake.
I call your set-up, the Steve Adler tribute kit. When Steve first joined GNR, theym took away his big, arena rock kit, and made him play with just a kick, snare, and floor tom. They "forced" him to concentrate on the groove. Leave behind, the multi-tom fills. And, those early Hollywood GNR shows, well, those guys were raw. Gutter-rockers. And the first album, still holds its own, 25 years later.
My "minimalist" set .... you have 1 more drum, than me.

Default Mario Borrelli here

Hi My friends
Mario Borrelli is a Neapolitan by birth and musical background. Naples can be considered the cradle of Italian rhythmical nature and it's significant musical tradition has given birth to many talented artists. Mario was born in Cercola, Naples (Italy) on the 2nd May 1981. Influenced by his dad who was a Musician (drummer) he began playing classical piano aged 8 and the drums aged 11. His passion for music started at an early age, being surrounded by instruments and music more than toys.

I seem to have a lot of online friends from Portugal. I'm glad you're here.

You probably already have a metronome from your other music but if not, pick one up.

Don't think you have any reason not to love that kit. I've had one pretty expensive kit and one very expensive kit. Now I have a Yamaha kit that cost around $600 new. I like this one.

Default New to the forums, looking for lesson ideas

Hey everyone, D-Rock here. I'm 32 years old and started playing when I was 16. For years before I actually started playing I also wanted to play but for whatever reason my time had to wait...I bought my first set a 1970's Ludwig Vistalite from a great musician friend who would end up being the guitarist in a few bands with me. After two years of playing I started studying seriously with my now close friend David Dreyfus (Student of Dom Famularo) I started teaching drums at the age of 21 after studying with David for 3 years. I stopped teaching when I went to school at the age of 26 to get my degree in Chemistry. Recently graduated last year at the age of 31, didn't land a job teaching chemistry and I've gotten back into drumming and teaching again. I'm trying to make cool online videos and so anyone with cool ideas please throw them my way. Here are two videos I have made...one is on inverted double stroke rolls with your feet, and the other is on a brazilian samba pattern. Hope to hear from people soon..Enjoy!

How long have you been playing? Off and on 33 years.
Origin of user name? A mixture of my profession and initials.
Your top 5 drummers? 1. Neil Peart, 2. Jimmy The Rev Sullivan, 3. Joey Jordison, 4. John Bonham, 5. Lars Ulrich
Make of drumkit? Pearl Vision VBL in Birch
Make of cymbal? Zildjian ZXT until I can afford to pick up a set of A Customs

One really odd fact about yourself? I'm an old fart, but still feel young.
How did you start drumming? Beat on shit in the house until I was old enough to start music in 5th grade. Was playing in a College Jazz Band by my Sophmore year in High School. I've been away from it for 15 years and miss it, so I picked up a nice used kit about month ago. Now trying to build my chops back up. It's amazing how much you lose it when you haven't picked up a pair of sticks in years! Tapping on the steering wheel in the car to the radio just doesn't cut it!

Alright fellas.......let's go!!


I used to have a mate called Chunky. Hellraiser was pretty much how I'd describe him too. He was truely as mad as a cut snake. Now I've just gotta get used to seeing Chunky without the ensuing lunacy.....and imminent police presence. :-)

Welcome aboard mate.
