Hey, I just registered. My real name is "Valentin Buss", I'm 17 years old and live in Frankfrut am Main (Germany). My Username refers to an odd fact about myself ;-) I have really wierd hair, red, curly and it grows to an Afro if you just leave it alone.
I started drumming about three years ago, I just wanted to learn something cool instead of just wasting time so I told my mom "I want to have drumming lessons and if I won't want them anymore in a week, FORCE ME!". It took some time until she organized drumming lessons and by then she really had to force me to go there, but with the time I started to love it and now I'm so happy that I haven't quit my lessons (although I wanted to). I still play pretty old equipment, I think my parents bought the drumset from 2nd hand when my brother started drumming (10-15 years ago, he didn't play long). It was pretty standard by that time, after a year I got a new Hi-Hat-Machine, a Crash-Cymbal (only had a ride by Pearl before) and a bassdrum-pedal. This christmas I got a Yamaha DFP-9310, it totally rocks and when I become 18 this year, I'll get myself a whole new drumset (any recommandations between 500 and 1000 €?).
My cool neighbours allow me to practice at home. I play in 2 bands and in our school big band now, it's a lot of fun but nothing really serious. As you can see my musical interest isn't limited to one special style. Still most of the music I head (from Jazz to Powermetal) is pretty uptempo and I think when I play my grooves I drive too much, but hey, everybody has his problems.

Real name: Matt Walker

Origin of user name: origin is real name. :)
Top 5 drummers: Buddy Rich, Dave Weckl, Adam Shendal, Steve Gadd, Neil Peart
Make of drumkit: Tama, Yamaha, Pearl

Where do you practice: My room, school, church...Anywhere I possibly can.
Are you in a band/s: Not now, but eventually.

Favourite take out food: Pizza of course
Country: United State
One really odd fact about yourself: Ummmm...I have a strong obsession with cow bells!
How did you start drumming: Well...music has always been apart of me, I moved from piano, to bass, then finally on to drums, where I have seemed to stay so far. I learned drums from a close family friend named Adam Shendal http://stevenleegroup.com/aboutslg_adam.htm

I swear Adam was born with drum sticks in his hand. It's kinda cool because he grew up with Buddy Rich, when I go into his house I see all the pictures of Buddy and him, truly inspiring. I think of Adam Shendal to be my own personal Buddy Rich. So anyways, one day, I told Adam I was interested in playing, we met one night and talked about it all. I was told that I picked up the drums quick, and that I have a natural time, hopefully that's true. :P

So I'm still practicing, always trying to get better. I plan a career in music, so I figure I better get ahead of the game.

how did you start drumming? I would have started when I was 9 when I told my mom I wanted to. she thought all boys wanted to play drums for no reason so she sent me to piano lessons and clarinet lessons. not till I after a year of playing drums at church, self-taught, did she start paying for drum lessons at age 14.
how I got my start was... one day after church, I was goofing around on the drums in the back room. the youth pastor heard me playing and told me that I was going to play that sunday. I've been playing every sunday since...
so i'm 4 years behind where my ability could be but i think im catchin' up! my mom still apologizes to me once in a while.

Hi everyone,

My name is Cam Stephens and I am new to this forum. Up until now I have been a member of the Sabian Zone forum but find that it is incredibly dull up there and that is why I am now here. I will be sure to post some pics of my kit soon but in the meantime let me know whats cool on this forum!

Peace,
Cam
