Default Bobby Jarzombek here!

Hello fellow drummers,
I was just browsing around to see what you guys have been talking about lately.
I've been hanging out here in LA practicing some new double bass concepts that are pretty interesting. Hopefully, I'll get to apply this stuff someday. Ha!!!
Bernhard has a very cool site here, I'm sure you all agree!
talk soon,
Bobby

Great to have you on board!

Friends, check out Bobby's page on DrummerWorld for some great double bass lessons, and of course check out his homepage for tour dates, bio, discography, and much more.

Well can't believe that you're here...

I'm really looking forward to seeing your new double bass lessons cuz the two at drummerworld inspired me a lot and are really great for the use in solo contexts.


stay healthy,

Crewses

I saw most of Bobby's DVD the other week while visiting my flatmate at work - he works in a drum shop. Impressive stuff. All the things flying in different directions confuse my tiny brain. It took me five minutes to figure out which ways was "Forwards" what with them cymbals back there...

Edit: Oh, some content... sorry. Bobby - is there anything specific you've done to work on your ability to pull off those choked cymbal phrases during complex hand-to-hand patterns? There's one thing on the video here ("School") which left me pretty baffled as to how you'd come up with it. Was that a program-and-learn job or have you worked on that kind of stuff in a sufficiently focused way that it just comes out when you're jamming? If this is answered on your video of course, feel free to call me an idiot and send me back to watch it again...

Bobby, glad you graced us with your presence. I just have to say that I am a big fan, since discovering you on Drummerworld, strangely enough, I have thoroughly enjoyed watching your playing. And the DVD was an excellent buy!

Maybe you can visit London one day to do a clinic.

Thanks.

Hello Bobby,
You really sound terrific. Kudos on the killer drumming. You almost make this jazz cat want to buy a double kick pedal and start rockin' the free world. Come up to Calgary and do a clinic! Or anywhere in Canada! We'd love to see you play- you're great!

hi bobby.

hey, you play the same cymbals as me. love the 2002 rock types. they are like a more musical sounding rude cymbal. my singer complains when we are on a small stage because my brass is too loud. overhead mics? i don't need no stinking overhead mics.

Good! Another sweat and brain-trauma inducing DVD! I just ordered a copy from amazon.com. The clips look like he takes some different approaches to Joe Francos' double kick dvd.

I can wait to be humbled, and frustrated again by complex techniques...

"Technique masochist"

EDIT: This thread lead to my personal discovery of Spastic Ink, So I had to order Ink Complete and Ink Compatable.

I listened to a couple spastic ink cd's. If you didn't tell me that the instrumentals were spastic ink, I'd swear they were dream theater or liquid tension experiment.

This is a good thing, because Bobby does the odd time, lick-intensive playing that Mike Portnoy does.

Hope Bobby comes back soon, despite his hectic schedule ;)

On topic, I'm gonna order his "Performance and Technique" DVD when I get my next paycheque! All I've heard is praise and acclaim for it.

Hey guys. Just wanted to say that Bobby is an amazing drummer and he helped me a lot. We even exchanged some e-mails. I'm so happy 'cause almost every time he found some time to reply. He is great. Maybe he'll remember me. I'm Dado from Croatia.

Hey Bobby!!
Cool to have you hangin' with us!!
Any plans to be in the Pacific Northwest? Bet you'd get some takers for a clinic and/or some lessons.
Looking forward to a look at things from a pro's perspective!

I just want to say if you get to read it that is, is that the drumming on Halfords album Crucible is some of the best drumming i've ever heard. You have a gift definately!

Holy Jesus. Bobby Jarzombek just used the forum! I'm such a huge fan of yours. Saw you with the Halford band and Iced Earth here in New Jersey. Let's go, give us the new Iced Earth already!


Your amazing. I bow to you. (In his best Wayne and Garth voice) I'm not worthy!

I had no idea that you are on here. I am really impressed with your double-bass playing. I am working on it myself. I need to get me some Axis pedals. I got big feet and they would help.

I just recieved Bobby's dvd "performance & technique"

I have just been watching the extras...selecting paiste cymbals, in the studio and sound check.

Nice crisp snare in the paiste video...high pitched despite it's depth. Nice focus.

I tried only one 2002 ride, it seemed kind of washy to me. But the 2002 Crashes are superb.

I will have to delve into the main DVD as time permits.

the videos on your sight have such complex arangements its rediculous. its so hard to belive the stuff you play isnt improv... i love the sound you get out of your bass drum too. and of course, that lick you play with the cymbal catches is incredable.

Bobby,
Welcome. I love your drumming on Rob Halfords Resurrection album. Could you tell me the drums and recording setup you used on that album? The drum sound and your playing was fantastic!

Hey Bobby, welcome to the site.
Your an awesome player and I like your interesting cymbal set up with the crashes behind you. It's funny seeing someone hitting a cymbal behind their head without looking.

Hello once again!
It's good to read all the comments on the boards here.
I haven't updated my website since..............a long time. Actually we're re-vamping it so I'm holding off for now. I've been working on a few projects that I can't talk too much about right now......but all is good.
I had a great time at NAMM this year. I spent some time talking drums and trading licks with Tim (Waterson), Derek (Roddy), Flo, etc.....
talk soon,
Bobby
