Nice. My mate gave me his old leedy kit, which i subsequently killed. It's a shame that they don't make decent drums any more really. I think it's just a brand name for some cheapo chineese jobbie or something.

Real name? Austen

Age? 17

How long been playing? 6 months now.

Origin of user name? Favorite drummer: Questlove of The Roots. I used to just replace the "A" in my name with a question mark, but people thought it was the word, "question." So I figured I'd just take the same nickname.

Top 5 drummers? Lee Finkelstein, Questlove, Keith Moon, Brad Wilk, & Chad Smith

Make of drumkit? Currently, and for the past 3 months, a crappy Sound Percussion. I just bought a Pearl Export set on CraigsList, so I need to install them. I haven't played them yet.

Make of cymbal? On my current set; all Zildjians. I actually have a 14" top hi-hat on top of a 13" bottom. On the set I just got, it came with a Zildjian Crash and Ride, with Sabian hats.

Where do you practice? In my room. Mostly when my sister isn't home.

Are you in a band/s? Not formally, but I mess around with two cover bands.

Covers or originals? Covers.

What style of music? Mostly Classic Rock.

Favorite take out food? Arby's or Wendy's.

Country? U.S.

One really odd fact about yourself? My IQ was found to be among the highest 15% found in the state for my age, yet I'm in the bottom 30% of my graduating class.

How did you start drumming? My three uncles have been playing since they could sit upright at the drum throne, (one of which is world renowned, playing with the Original Blues Brothers Band, Tower of Power, Stevie Wonder, Isaac Hayes, Stevie Cochran, (currently), the original Cosby Show band/orchestra, and countless other famous artists). About 6 months ago, my mom got married, and I wanted to surprise her by playing drums at her wedding. My uncles told me as much as the could over the phone, but I hadn't a set, no sticks, no nothing. So in about a month of talking on the phone, and 10 minutes on the morning of the wedding, I played a steady beat for two songs with no pause, no fills, no cymbals, no nothing. Since then, I've gotten myself a set, teaching myself everything I know just from listening.

make of drum kit? Maple ply shells

make of cymbal? Wuhan, Zildjian, Sabian

Bass, too many, need to cut back.. Drums, not currently (mainly started drumming for recording purposes, but who knows?)

Always looked like fun! But mainly I already play/pro guitar and bass and wanted to be able to write w/o resorting to plugins and software for drumming. Also, learning a new instrument builds new skills and ways of thinking about the other ones you already know.

Hello. My name is Ted White with the Soundproofing Company. I'm not sure if I'm supposed to identify my company affiliation in my signature or not. I've sent a PM to admin for clarification.

If I can offer an opinion regarding construction options or techniques, I'll be happy to, but it's never good form to discuss individual products or brands, so I won't go there.

In looking at a few threads so farm it seems there are some very savvy people here with great advice. Maybe I can learn something.

Hi folks,

I love drumming, but basically I suck as a drummer. However I am a more or less accomplished musician and play many instruments but left music as a career at an early age after graduating from Berklee College of music and discovering work as a outdoor guide/climbing guide instructor/leader. Now I am a sound junkie and play many instruments. I am a didgeridoo maker by profession these days and have made a range of other musical instruments including drums. I live in the beautiful Colorado Rocky mountains at high elevation and winters are long and cold here. I am a drum, cymbal and gongaholic

I see many familiar people from other forums are here as well: cymbalholic, DFO Ghostnote, etc. Looks like a much wider range of tastes than the vintage crowd in general. Glad to find this place.
