Age? Let's just say over 40

How long been playing? From age 15 but had tow breaks - one for two years, another for eight

Origin of user name? My outlook on life!

Top drummers? Some drummers I enjoy who inject personality into their playing ... Ringo, Mitch Mitchell, Stewart Copeland, Bill Bruford, Prairie Prince, Pierre Moerlen (sigh), Mike Giles, John Bonham, Tony Smith, Airto, Rob Hirst, Sol Amarfio. Basically, I'm impressed by most drummers :) My style is probably like a bad mix of Ringo, Jim Hodder and Bonzo.

Make of drumkit? I'm hiring them at the moment. I have plans that may or may not come to pass.

Make of cymbal? Formerly Paiste

Where do you practice? A friend's rehearsal studio

Are you in a band/s? Yes, but we just play in the studio for fun. Once the lineup's settled someone might get off their backside and find some gigs.

Covers or originals? Mostly 60s and 70s classics. When I was pretending to be serious I was only in originals bands.

What style of music? Rock, R'n'B, blues. A bit of funk. In the old days, eclectic rock.

One really odd fact about yourself? I have two toenails on each of my little toes.

How did you start drumming? I was just drawn to it, but a boy from school encouraged me.

Favourite take out food? Indian - navrattan korma

Country? Australia

Default Lurked long enough

Hello
This will be my first post. I have lurked around here for a while now, but thought it was time to introduce myself. I did the Q&A below.
I first became aware of this forum when I met Bernhard and Thomas at the DrumSmith pre-NAMM dinner last year. We sat together at a table and introduced our self's. My wife Lisa was working for Drummer World at the time selling advertising. Thomas was telling me about the forum and that I should check it out. I did lurk a bit at the time, but never posted.
More recently though, it was "Mendozart" that brought my attention back to this forum. He had posted some pictures of one of my kits in a thread about a restoration on a Ludwig Blue Oyster Pearl kit. I started checking out the rest of the site and decided to join in the fun.
I will post a few of my restoration projects, as that is where my passion is these days.
My focus has been 1970's Blaemire fiberglass kits, but more recently, I have been working on Ludwig, and a Blaemire/Ludwig hybrid.
Glad to be here....and I hope to be posting more soon.
Jerry



real name/ Jerry Jenkins

top 5 drummers? Gavin Harrison -Benny Greb -Jojo Mayer -Dave DiCenso -Todd Sucherman

make of cymbal? Paiste-Sabian- UFIP
where do you practice? Home studio

Hi everyone, I've been reading a few topics recently, but only just joined today. So, hi. It's exciting to be in a community full of other drummers. Hopefully I'll learn a lot from you guys. :)

real name? Audrey
age? 13
how long been playing? Since I was eight, so five years.
origin of user name? It's my nick-name.
top 5 drummers? Neil Peart, Jon Hiseman (I had a lesson with him!), Billy Cobham, Tony Royster Jr and Buddy Rich I suppose.
make of drumkit? PDP.
make of cymbal? Zildjians, Wuhan and Paiste.
where do you practice? At home, in the top room of my house. :)
are you in a band/s? Yes and I love it more than anything.
covers or originals? Both, mainly originals.
what style of music? Funk, Rock, Blues, whatever, experimental. I'm still eager to learn more styles.
favourite take out food? Indian.
country? United Kingdom.
one really odd fact about yourself ? I can't think of one really..
how did you start drumming? Well.. basically.. my older sister got me into rock when I was about five. I always loved it, so I started off learning the guitar. Which is pretty typical.
Then.. I was shit at guitar to be honest. Mind you I was a seven year old girl, lol. When I was about eight some guy up the road I heard was a drummer and my family knew him quite well. So my mum asked if I'd like a drum lesson with him. I said yes.
From the moment I stepped on his drum-kit and banged a few drums, learned my first beat etc, it was all I wanted to do. It still is. I then took a rock music course thing, really great experience. It got me even more into it, my first experience playing in a rock band was at nine and I loved it. So I carried on doing courses, playing in bands etc.
Today I'm in a band which I love more than anything, and I never want to leave it. Drums will always be my main focus in my career, I reckon.

Real name? Karim, sir.
Age? I'm 20 years old, sir.
How long been playing? Now thats a bit complicated, the first time I touched a drumset was almost 4 years ago, had a drumset about a year after, for 8 months and since then I've been depending on weekly/monthly random jams (It got up high to almost 3 months too) so, ye :|.
Origin of user name? Inspired by a dream.
Top 5 drummers? Danny Carey, Carter Beauford, Jon Theodore, Gene Krupa and John Blackwell.
Make of drumkit? Edit Pearl Export, just got it today.
Make of cymbal? K custom Zildjians.
Where do you practice? A studio near by.
Are you in a band/s? Yes sir, 2.
Covers or originals? Mainly originals but we sometimes do covers just to cure the itch.
What style of music? A mixture of Rock (Sometimes progressive), Blues, Funk and British punk
Favourite take out food? Chinese probably.
Country? Born in England, been living in Egypt ever since I was 5.
One really odd fact about yourself? I enjoy chasing buses in a pink wedding dress.
How did you start drumming? A friend of mine called me up and told me he was jamming in a studio near by my house, he knew I'd be excited coz I've always been interested in music and drumming. I go over there, get in the room and I see this badass white Pearl kit just sitting there like a freaking beast, so after 30 minutes of just gazing at the drum set, amazed at the intensity and power of the drums, they take a break and the drummer hands me his drum sticks. So I get behind the kit, figured out which drum sounded like what then the guitarist was playing the intro to the song Ariels by System of a Down. So I was like "Oh yeah this is the part where it goes *Boom boom boom boomb boomb boomb boomb/PISH* then I just played the beat, just like that, so we just went at it through the whole song (That sounded dirty didnt it?) I was so excited at that point I didnt even notice the rest of the band members enter the room.

Default Re: hey im new (to Lee loves Sabian)

Question:
Are you a Sabian man, Zildjian man, or Paiste man?

Good Question, but we're not all men here. I'm a K. Zildjian woman. I do have a great A. Zildjian set of hi-hats, and an old ride cymbal that I adore. But I use my dark K. Zildjian and cool splash more. 1 sabian, so-so, Paistes are nice most of the time, but they're pricey, you know? I have one pretty raucous Wuhan - for special occasions. ;-)

OK, back to our previously scheduled drumming 24/7.....
