So ... Im the new one it seems. Im 22, playing drums now for about 2 years and my "heroes" though would be Jason Bittner, Chris Adler, Derek Roddy & Dave McClain. Trying everyday to get better and searching for a new band right now. Im playing a Pearl Export Series Kit with Meinl/Paiste/Sabian Cymbals, DW Pedals, Pro-Mark Sticks & Evans Drumheads.

If I missed something, just ask or tell ! ^^

Welcome Seth to the best site on the web for drum and drumming info. From gear to lessons to drummers bio's to views of our sets and setups. A quick estimate from the first page shows about 170,000 to 200,000 posts. After you have read all of these, you may begin asking questions. Just kidding, but there is a search feature where you can type in a subject or idea to see if it has been discussed previously. If not ask away and the 12000 or so members will be glad to help. Have fun.

Default Re: Introduce Yourself

Hi everyone. My name is Tom.
Usually I don't post an introduction in the "hey, I'm new" forum on such sites, but seeing as how this is a site for drummers and everyone else seems to lay out their dirty, I guess its only fair that I do too.

AGE: 47

Years playing: 20 (retired due to wrist injury-specifically ganglial cyst which needed surgery, Doc said to continue playing might result in permanent loss of use of hands so I regretfully quit-well, quit drums, but not music. I switched to keyboards.)

Origin of user name: That's kind of a long story, but here goes. When I first went online I was trying to sign up for Yahoo! using a character name from the pantheon of H.P. Lovecraft's monster lore. All the names had been used, or I was given an option of a name with a ridiculous string of numbers like "Cthulhu1990656". I didn't want any numbers in my user name so I tried and tried for some catchy name and kept getting the "try again" message. While all this was going on, I had the TV running in the background and M*A*S*H happened to be playing. In that episode, a character pulls up in a jeep and says into his radio, "ablebravo 1 to ablebravo 2, we're in position..." . Well that had kind of a catchy sound to it so I tried ablebravo as my username and hey, presto! it worked. Ever since then, my internet presence has had some variation on the "able" portion of that original Yahoo user name.

Top 5 fave drummers: Carl Palmer, Buddy Rich, Dave Lombardo, Phil Collins, Bill Bruford

Type of drumkit: I don't have it any more, but I used to have an 11 piece solid maple Slingerland kit. After literally shattering pretty much every make of bass pedal, I finally found one that could handle my lead-footed style and still be lightning fast even with a solid wood beater- the Slingerland 944 Yellowjacket.

Cymbals: I've always been a fan of the classic A. Zildjian, but I did have a 22" Paiste China type as well.

Where do I practice?: Well, as I said I don't play drums any more, but I do have a full-function home recording studio which is my recreation as well as my business. I, doing business as Bent Ears Audio Laboratories, produce voice tracks and musical bedding for commercials and corporate training videos. I have an Ensoniq ESQ1, an Ensoniq Halo, and 4 "soft synths": A Moog Modular, MiniMoog, ARP 2600 and Yamaha CS80.

I also post my compositions which boil out of my subconscious from time to time on my podcast site, the link to which can be found in my profile. Any comments-good or bad- are more than welcome.

Just a nickname.
My favorite drummers this week would be: JoJo Mayer, Stanton Moore, John Blackwell, Joe Morello, and.....Steve Gadd.
Pearl Export Select and Yamaha DTXtreme.
A mixture of Zildjian and Sabian
I practice In my house, or at the University
Right now I just play in the University big band, I'm lonely for an outside musical relationship...
Well, techinically I guess we play both originals and covers.
We play jazz, funk, latin......usual college big band stuff.
Favorite take-out: a local place called Typhoon of Tokyo
I live in the USA
One really odd fact: I started out playing violin, and my birthday is one day after Joe Morello's.
Started playing violin in fifth grade, and then decided that drums were cooler.

Default Hey There

I am a full time booking agent out of West Loop in Downtown Chicago, IL. In another life I was a pro drummer and toured with a headline act. After I got sick of being sick and tired I got into the biz end of the biz. Now after 15 plus years as an agent I have started a management company and Indie Label. I have two clients for both. Donny Osborne (Buddy Rich, Mel Torme) and DJ Master P.E. (L.A. DJ). In my pic left to right is Bill Ludwig III (grandson of the original founder and owner of The Ludwig Drum Co. and current publisher of Not So Modern Drummer), Me, Donny Osborne (Buddy Rich's protege, Mel Torme's exclusive recording and touring drummer for over 23 years and son of the former president of The Slingerland Drum Co.). Not a photo op. These are two of my friends.
