real name? - Daniel
age? - 17
how long been playing? - 5-6 Years
origin of user name? - I've used the name "Kastrien" for just about everything.
top 5 drummers? - Blake Richardson (Between the Buried and Me/Glass Casket), Leche (As Blood Runs Black), Matthew Gossman (Into the Moat), Chris Adler (Lamb of God), and Jason Bitner (Shadows Fall)
make of drumkit? - Pearl
make of cymbal? - Sabian
where do you practice? -Home, School, Anywhere where there's a kit, other than that, I always have a pair of sticks.
are you in a band/s? - I play/jam with a lot of the guys out here locally, but I've only been in one band a while back and looking for one currently. Other than that, I've committed most of my time to my school's band/drumline.
covers or originals? - Originals, but I like to do covers as well.
what style of music? - I like to play all styles, but mainly as of now, jazz and metal.
favourite take out food? - drums.
country? - USA
one really odd fact about yourself? - I'm a computer nerd.
how did you start drumming? - My parents got me a child's set when I was about 5, but I never learned anything from that, but I really started learning in 7th grade band, and then got my set in 8th grade. So, mainly from school band.

I also made this:

I'm Kastrien.
I recently happened to stumble upon these forums and would like to become a member here.
I'm 17 and a senior in high school.
I'm in my high school's drumline and band and I am the section leader of my drumline of over 30 members. I was the center snare during marching season, and now play everything else during concert season. I also play kit.
I am in my school Jazz band as well, which is the only form of set lessons that I've ever had; jazz drumming. Other then that, I've pretty much worked myself up to my current abilities on set. I would say that everything I've learned in band/drumline has helped me with my set playing. I've been in band since 7th grade and have been playing set since 8th (5 years). I started drumline in 9th grade, playing Top Bass (out of 6), but playing the Snare part (We did it differently at my school), and every year after that playing Snare and eventually moved my way up to becoming the center snare. I've taken place in several events such as Region, All state, UIL, Solo & Ensemble, and others. Also, I've been to PASIC (performed) twice, while there I was a contestant of the Drum-O-Meter contest, which is viewable here: http://www.drumometer.com/pasic2006.htm You'll see me in some of those pictures. Though, against fellow high school students, i was against college students as well, coming close, i didnt win. ha Also met many famous drummers and percussionists, including Vic Firth. Twice.
So, as you can see, a lot of my drumming comes from school, but I'd prefer playing on my set any day, though, I've been expected some sort of musical scholarship with a local university. But that's a little later on. ehh.

So, if anyone has any questions, feel free to ask.

-Kastrien

Howdy folks!
First off, let me say that I'm a guitar player...not a drummer, though my interests
are of anything musical.
Through this forum I hope to learn more about the percusive end of the spectrum.

Real name: Tim
How long been playing: Guitar: 27 years Drums: I wouldn't say I'm good enough to be considered as "playing"...I mostly try to experiment with different tunings and cymbal setups to achieve different sounds.
Origin of user name: My dog let me use his name
Age: 43
Make of equipment: 3 Fender Strats 2 Fender Super Reverbs 1 1955 Fender Deluxe and various pedals to cover up my mistakes
Make of drumkit: my best friend is nice enough to let me use one of his kits to experiment on: Pearl Export 8", 10", 12", 13", 16", 22" with 10" and 14" snares...various Sabian AA and Zildjian A custom cymbals.
Drummers that open my ears and mind: Simon Phillips, Vinnie Colaiuta, Steve Gadd,
Neil Peart, Phil Ehart, Omar Hakim, Van Romaine, Rod Morgenstein, Carter Beauford, Jeff Porcaro, Stewart Copeland.....this only scratches the surface.
Where do you make noise: Garage
Are you in a band/s: Not currently
What style of music: Blues/Rock/Jam
Favourite take out food: Chinese/Japanese
Country: USA
One really odd fact about yourself: I sometimes feel like a guitar player trapped in a drummers body.
How did you start drumming: I can count to 4...that's damn near the extent of my drumming capabilities.

Got myself an instructor and have been swinging since. I've only been playing for a short time but have played Acoustic Upright Bass in many groups throughout the SF Bay Area. Playing Bass has helped me a great deal in that I already know the music, lots of the tunes, song forms and the language of Jazz. I'm just having to apply it all to the Drums.

That about wraps it up!

'Ello from Wales!

My names Melvyn, and although this isnt my first post, i just thought id introduce myself properly

Ive been drumming for around 7 years and are currently studying for my Grade 8 exam, though my kit is a rock set of Performance Percussion cannons, ive refinished them and shoved new heads on, and they sound first class!

Im currently saving for my next kit, probably a Mapex M Birch or Yamaha Stage Custom!

Im the drummer for a band, Apolica, we're a power/heavy metal band based in the south wales area, and we're currently recording our first demo (not in a studio, using computer software)

we have 2 websites,
the proper one (with forum) http://www.apolica.com
and forum http://www.apolica.com/forum

and the myspace (everyone has one -.-)
http://www.myspace.com/apolica

We havent got any recordings or pictures up yet, but we're currently recording so hopefully something will be up soon!
