Welp, hello fellow drummers. I've been lurking around the site for a while. But I've registered and I look forward to contributing to the drummerworld community. And gather useful information for my own personal use.

I'm 31 years old. I've been playing drums for about 15 years. My influences come from all over. I get inspiration from people such as Gene Krupa to Joey Jordison to Tito Puente. I've been in a number of different bands. But I really love playing metal and I love breakdowns.

I've probably owned about six different acoustic kits. Some sort of Sonor kit was my first. I really beat the crap out of that poor kit. My kit now is an inexpensive 5 piece Pearl fusion kit. It gets the job done. I use a variety of different cymbols with the kit. I have a love for trashy/swishy cymbols. I also have a Roland TD6 electric kit for those late night jam sessions in the basement.

Thats pretty much me in a nutshell.

Hi all,
I havent played in a few years but the bug just bit me again. so i joined here to get a little info besides being among friends.

played for about 10 years before i quit about 6-7 years ago. still very rusty compared to what i used to be able to do. but its comin back after a month of trying, little by little. worst part is building the stamina i once had.

not sure what my drum kits is actually and was hoping someone could tell me. Ill have to post pics later. Theyre Yamaha and was told when i bought them in 1994 that they were vintage classics? dont know much about drums, i play guitar too and really got into the info part as well as the playing on that instrument more over the years.

one of the model no's is TT-7130

but anyway..... hi Yall,
from Florida
David

Name: Christian
Age: 55
City: Montreal, Canada
Band: Numb
Drum: Taye (Ray Ayotte) 5 drums + vintage Rogers Dynasonic snare & Tama Kenny Aronoff signature snare.
Cymbals: Zildjian or die...
Fav style: Blues, Classic Rock
Fav drummers: Steve Gadd, Kenny Aronoff, Graham Broad


Hi,

I started drumming when I was 14. I got my first rig from a local pawnshop for 100$. It was a black and white zebra look Pyramid. The standard 4 drums set. I added a set of cheap cymbals and started playing for fun.

A year and a half later, I traded my Pyramid and 200$ for a Beatles style Ludwig which came with Zildjian Turkish cymbals. What a change in sound it was...

A year later, I traded my Ludwig for another Ludwig. A beautiful Vistalite clear 5 drums... I kept it 3 years, until someone made me an offer I couldn't refuse. Ludwig had stopped producing acrylic drums (they do have some now) and the guy really wanted my set. So I traded for his almost new Rogers with a 20 BD and 4 Zildjians cymbals and Hi-hat plus 300$.

Few years later, I grabed a double Ludwig set with 6 toms and kept it for many years as I had left the scene and was only playing for fun.

But in 1997, old musicians friends called in to ask If I wanted to join them for a one night only gig and that was it... Could not stop... Sold the double Ludwig and started shopping for a new set.

When I saw it, it was love at first sight... A beauty... Glossy black finish, shinning chrome and cymbals... The guy said '' do you drum?''... I grabbed a set of sticks and took it for a ride... WOW!!! I had never heard anything like that. A real deep sound from all drums. That was it... Got myself a brand new Canadian made Custom maple Ayotte... Never regretted it. I played that drum over and over and everytime I was playing it I had that same feeling. Like when you drive a Ferrari or something similar.

Last year, I decided to change it. I checked out the Ayotte again but in the mean time, we were practicing in an all equipped studio and It was my first encounter with another Ayotte product... TAYE.... Wow! Same deep sound. So I checked out the prices at my local dealer. Few days later, I heard that the studio was changing their sets and the one I was playing on was for sale. It looked like new. One year old only. A SM622SD (Studio Maple) with all the hardware and a double BD pedal. A kit like that sells for about 3500$ CAD. I got it for... 600$... Couldn't believe it.

I still have my Taye. Still love it. Just got the new ZP 1.02 BD pedal. AMAZING...

Keep drummin...

Cheers!

one really odd fact about yourself-- I dropped out of medical school after two years to play drums full time.
how did you start drumming-- I started drumming from listening to Mitch Mitchell, Brad Wilk, and Steve Gadd, whose drumming had a highly profound spiitual and emotional impact on me. I was also bored with woodshedding on the guitar for about 15 years and taking that instrument about as far as I could go, technically speaking, in the rock idiom. I have always wanted to play jazz, but I don't really care for guitar in jazz music, so I wanted to try a new instrument.

Default Just introducing myself.

New to the forum here and just wanted to introduce myself. I'm 21 and live in Henderson, KY(not the best place for any musician). I love the website and hope i can contribute a fraction of what I take. Inspirations: JoJo Mayer, Buddy Rich, Tony Williams, Kenwood Dennard, Dom Famularo, Steve Gadd, Dave Weckl, Vinnie Colaiuta, Max Roach, and many more. Gear: DW kit, Ludwig Black Beauty Snare, mixed cymbals, and Roland TD-20.

Greetings and welcome to DW Forum! I like your name. Looks like DW now has another "GUY" roaming around. Might get confusing.. lol. Just to let you know, this thread will probably be moved to the "YOUR PLACE - Introduce Yourself" section of this forum. Just a heads up.

Post some pics of your kits in "Your Place - Your Gear" section of the board. I hope you enjoy your stay buddy!

The drums are in the cases but I took one out to show the finish. One ride is a sabian Hand Hanmered Jazz Ride which is the best ride i've owned in my opinion. The other is a Zildjian Constanople which is amazing as well. I also took a pic of my 14 K custom sessions. These are the cymbals i'm enjoying and using the most these days. It all sounds as good or better than it looks. :-)
Edit: The little girl playing the roland is my daughter, Lilly. She'll be three in October.
