Hello all!
real name: spencer
how long have I been playing: 11 years, for the most part
origin of username: it's my name!
top 5 favorite drummers: Rich, Bonham, Bernard Purdie, Joe Morello, Art Blakey
Make of drumkit: Ludwig amber vistalite
Make of cymbal: Zildjian A's
Where do I practice: Home and school
Am I in a band: No but hopefully very soon will be
Do I play covers or originals: Both
Fave takeout food: Wat-a-burger, local treat

How did I start drumming: My mom bought me an old, very cheap snare drum at a yard sale when I was 11 years old. I can't even remember the make, but a few months after I started getting lessons and the rest is history.

I'm 22. I haven't seriously played drums since my junior year of high school but I really want to get back into it all the way like i had been. In high school I was known as spencer, drummer. i miss those days. I always forgot how I felt with a pair of sticks in my hands, I just love that feeling. and I forgot how that felt! So for me personally, playing drums is like coming back home to what I'm good at, I missed it and forgot how I much I loved it! So I'm looking forward to learning from everyone here on this forum and just getting back to the thing I do the best.

Default Hello all......

Hi everyone...just to use a little etiquette before I go posting elsewhere, allow me to introduce myself...

I am Fishbone Stretch, you can call me me either/or....or the whole handle.

I recently got back into drumming after a 20 year abstinence and wish I'd never stopped. Currently playing in a band in Thame, Oxfordshire doing small pub gigs for the time being until we get a name for ourselves and then we'll move on to bigger and better things.

Have electronic kit which is great for the smaller venues but also have the same acoustic kit which I owned 20 years ago and have been refurbishing with new skins, cymbals and extra cymbals and bits.....

I host and contribute to too many other forums to count but hope I can make a worthwhile contribution here although my posts may be fairly infrequent.

I'm learning all the time but hope I can count on you all for a little help and advice.

Fishbone Stretch

Default Bass player in a strange world

Hello, drummers. I'm primarily a bass player exploring some unfamiliar territory in the land where people beat things with sticks. I also play guitar and do some home recording.

About a month ago, I started looking for a cheap-@$$ kit for my garage studio for my 7-year-old daughter and me to bang around on. For $200, I picked up a bottom-of-the-barrel PDP kit with Sabian B8s off Craigslist. I know it's a POS, and it sounds pretty bad, but it will get us started. For me, it's mostly to expand my musical experience, and improve my recording and mixing skills. For my daughter, it's turning out to be something that she is taking to quite well. She's very excited to play and practice, and she is picking up new techniques very quickly.

Knowing my tendancies with buying gear, I expect that our cheap kit will not be around for long before it gets upgraded. If my daughter continues to show interest and a willingness to keep improving, I have no problem using that as an excuse to buy a better kit.

Additionally, my own struggles to play simple patterns and fills have given me a new appreciation for the (quite remarkable) skill level of the drummer in my current band.

My garage studio...


Maddie rocking along with some Social D...


Cheers!

Real name? Noah Ice

Age? Seventeen

How long have you been playing? A little over seven; I got my first kit for Christmas in 05'. T'was a five piece Pulse kit with stock cymbals.

Origin of user name? Well there was this one time where I was born, and then my parents named me. Pretty cool story.

Your top 5 drummers? In no particular order, Benny Greb, JoJo Mayer, Mike Johnston, Chris Coleman, Darren King.

Make of drumkit? I currently play a vintage Rogers kit, but just got endorsed by C&C Drum Company so I plan to order a kit from them eventually.

- 68' Rogers Hoilday Londoner V in Blue Onyx. 20"x14" Kick, 16"x16" Floor, 12"x8" Tom
- 65' Ludwig Acrolite Snare 14"x5"
- Pork Pie Little Squealer Vented Snare 13"x7"
- Custom Homebuilt Stave Snare 13"x6.75"

Make of cymbal?

- Meinl 14" Byzance Extra Dry Medium Hats
- Meinl 20" Byzance Extra Dry Thin Crash
- Meinl 20" Byzance Traditional Extra Thin Hammered Crash
- Meinl 22" Byzance Vintage Sand Ride

Where do you practice? I have a room downstairs dedicated to doing music stuff, I keep my kit in there. Though I practice for stuff with others up at my church sometimes.

Are you in a band? Many projects at the moment that cover a wide variety of genres. Jazz Fusion, Christian Rock, Hardcore/Punk. My main band as of now is "Go Forth", which plays Christian camps/conferences.

Do you play covers or originals? "Go Forth" plays both original and covers. My jazz fusion trio very rarely plays covers, usually the form is very loose. This is my "fun experimental" band. The hardcore/punk band also rarely plays covers.

What style of music? Well, I don't limit myself to the genres of my bands. I'll play anything, really.

Favourite take out food? I'll get Panda Express any day. Orange chicken. Goodness, you made me crave it. Thanks a lot. No really, thank you. This is going to be delicious. I also enjoy Chipotle and Chic-Fil-A. Yum. Food.

What country do you live in? I live in the burbs of Chicago Illinois, USA.

One really odd fact about yourself? I enjoy golfing and have done that for longer than I've played drums. However, upon discovering drums, golf became more of a hobby. I try to get out enough to keep it in the 70's, but winter here makes that hard. I also have double jointed thumbs, an obsession with buying drum gear, and a chocolate labrador that I take for runs while out longboarding. Oh, and I'm a woodworker too! I made my longboards, and more recently a custom built snare. My dad owns a door company (Story Door Studio) so I get learned from him. I plan to build a full kit sometime later this year too, or at least the shells for one. Hardware is expensive.

How did you start drumming? I have no recollection of begging for a kit from my rents, but my parents said I begged for a couple years. They supported me and got me my first kit, which I did all sorts of things to to make it not look like a beginner kit until eventually selling it to help pay for my 16th birthday present, which is my Rogers kit. Luckily, I kept the 13" Tom, which is now part of a light fixture in my music room.

Glad to be here! Thanks!

Noah Ice

Real name? Eric F

Age? 43

How long have you been playing? About 1 month

Origin of user name? Hmmm...It just kinda came to me.

Your top 5 drummers? Jason McGerr, Dave Grohl, Zigaboo Modeliste, JoJo Mayer, Stewart Copeland

Make of drumkit? PDP plastic buckets

Make of cymbal? Sabian trash can lids

Where do you practice? Garage recording studio

Are you in a band? Yes (as a bass player)

Do you play covers or originals? Both

What style of music? Rock, blues, country

Favourite take out food? Mexican...or sushi...or pizza...

What country do you live in? US

One really odd fact about yourself? I raced bicycles until 2004 and won a State Champinship title.

How did you start drumming? My 7-year-old daughter would sit on the floor with pillows around her and pretend to play along with the music she was listening to. Pretty quickly, I realized that she might take to the real thing pretty well. For her, a real kit and learning some proper techniques has been the greatest thing ever, and I hope she sticks with it. For me, it's about expanding my experiences and skills as a musician.

Hi, i am Adrian, 50 years old, playing since i was 14 (Learnt the piano before that). I used to play real loud and hard and had a spiky haircut the combination of the noise and the hair got me a sonic the hedgehog nick which stuck even though my playing is now much more subtle and I have much less hair!

I love the playing of omar hakim, Taylor Hawkins, dave grohl, Jon bonham and Chester thompson.

I play a 1990's 6 piece yamaha maple custom drumkit with a pearl custom alloy brass snare with zildjan custom a cymbals and paiste sound edge hats. I also play on a Roland td20 electronic kit mostly for practise

I practise at home on my electronic kit and in rooms with my band on my acoustic kit.

I am in 2 bands, one pop/ wedding music, one indie rock, mostly covers some original tunes

Oh, I love curry, I live in England and I started playing on biscuit tins with wooden spoons!

Nice Gear!

Dave Lombardo, Nicko McBrain, Pete Sandoval, and "Frost" are some of my favorite metal drummers.

As far as this "djent" style, maybe I stopped figuring on labels, or paying attention since , "THe Bleeding," but what characterizes it?

Bands to give me a good example?

Nice to meet you, I want your Dave Weckl Splashes!

Hi all,

Ive posted a bit to get some information about drums, but i have not formally introduced myself.


I'm 27 from Boston and have been interested in learning how to play drums for years. I have played guitar for about 13 years, and have just started drum lessons once a week. Bought a Sonor 3007 kit recently, Pearl 900 series hardware, and Zildjian Avedis cymbal. Looking to get back into a band playing guitar, while learning drums on the side. I play mostly country, and some 90s rock.
