Hi Russell. Welcome to DW. Always room for another Aussie brother. Very nice Blues! Nice feel, great sounding singer, no Rock fills or fills after every bar thank God. The fills you did fit well within the genre. Good sounding recording, too. I like the harmonica player, I like it all. I'm a certified, card carrying, dues paying, Blues nut too. Very appropriate drumming on your part, I'm glad because if it wasn't I'd have to say something lol.

Hey now!

I used to play way back when and am looking to get into it again. Trying to piece together an as close to identical as possible Dave Grohl Nirvana kit (Black AS2 with natural superstar snare). Man it is not easy finding vintage drums in those sizes! Any way you can tell who my earliest influence was and the style I play. Never played with a band just jammed in my house.

Default Hello my rhythm mates.

I'm Dan, I'm 25 years of age and I'm a novice drummer in New Jersey, USA.

I started in 3rd grade with a Ludwig snare and then practiced rarely until I turned 16 and had become interested in rock.
I got a job then just to buy instruments. Saved up and got the kit which I'm still using today and my first guitar.
Now I love all kinds of music, jazz, rock, funk, metal, blues, doo wop, Rock'n'roll, swing, soul, 'world', 'latin', post-rock, math rock, you name it, I'll check it out.

Kit:
Pearl Export, 'Smoke Gray' (I believe that's what they were calling the sparkling green-grey wrap I ended up with)

Toms:
10"
12"
13"
16" Floor

22" Bass

Tama Iron Cobra PowerGlide Single Kick Pedal

Cymbals:
Unidentified Sabian 20" Ride,
Sabian B8 20" Ride,
Sabian 16" Pro Sonix crash
Sabian B8 hit hats
Avedis Zildjian 16" medium thin crash
Wuhan 10" splash.

Somehow I've accumulated five different snare drums:
The Ludwig I started on, Two pearl snares, a Yamaha and an unknown chrome 'mutt' snare.
All the standard 14"? diameter but a few different depths.

I'm looking to pick up an 18" floor tom to tune to the bass drum and some decent cymbals in the near future.
My B8's stink.. Thinking of getting some 14" new beats for the hihat.
If anyone has recommendations, feel free to message me.
I also want to get the hardware to mount a closed hihat on the right hand side.
I've got a ride on each side, going to have a floor tom on each side, and hopefully hats on both sides.

I'm always interested in learning more techniques. I'm still working on shoring up the basics. I'm not currently interested in becoming a double bass pedal player, hence the desire to adopt the 18" floor tom. Trying to be able to lead with either hand and play equally well.

Books I'm working with include:
Gary Chester's New Breed
Modern Rudimental Swing Solos by Charley Wilcoxon
Syncopation for the modern drummer by Ted Reed
Joel Rothman's Jazz Drum Book.

Book recommendations are welcome too.

I studied for a year or a year and a half under Bob Boyd.

I also enjoy playing a Meinl Cajon.

Thanks for the excellent wealth of a resource that is this forum.

Hey all, I'm Tim from Orlando, FL. I am 24 years old and have been playing for 15 years. I play a lot of alternative stuff, but I recently have been getting into some double bass stuff. I play anything, really. I have an old Ludwig Rocker set that I've had for about 10 years, and also an electronic set.

Hi - I'm Javier from Miami and I've been playing drums close to 30 years. Last year, I tore up my arm in a cycling accident and the kit went in the closet. But I pulled it out last week and I'm giving it another try.

Background and influences are 1980s mostly: Kenney Jones, Keith Moon, Terry Bozzio and Simon Phillips but with a rebuilt arm/elbow, sounds like we're going to be playing more R&B/jazz and giving up on the over-the-top arena rock fills. I can't wait. Glad to be here.

I play a 1990 Tama Rockstar. We'll see if that works for these new genres...

Hey all, a little late getting to this introduction thread, anyway, here it is.

Jim Mattingly, I like long walks on the beach, sunsets, reading by candlelight...Ohh, not the right website, ha ha...

Jim Mattingly, 49 yrs. young. Been playing drums/percussion on and off for 30 plus years. Claim to fame would be opening up for the Gregg Allman band when I was 17 years old and opening up for an east coast big name band called Root Boy Slim & The Sex Change Band in College Park, MD...Gave up the rock star aspirations when I went into the Navy for 8 years in 79. Still love playing and will literally keep playing until I am physically unable to do so.
Currently my drum kit of choice for about the past 4 years is a SONOR S-Classix kit, racked. Up until recently I have used nothing but Zildjian cymbals, however, I am awaiting delivery of 3 UFIP cymbals, a 20" Rough Ride, 18" Rough Crash and a 18" Natural China.
I use a combination of Shure and Audix mics, a combination of Pearl and Gibralter hardware. A DW 9000 single kick pedal or a Pearl Eliminator double kick. A DW 9000 Remote Hi Hat stand or a Pearl Eliminator HH stand.
I prefer to play Modern/Smoothe jazz stylings for my own pleasure but tend to be in classic rock and blues bands for giggin out, the demand for jazz is just not in the Grand Rapids, MI. areas. I am originally from the Washington, D.C area where the tastes and music styles are much more diverse.
My favorite drummers are numerous but if I had to pick 5 they would be as follows, but not necessarily in the order listed. Lenny White, Gavin Harrison, Richie Hayward, Buddy Rich, Tony WIlliams...
I have been involved with quite a few other drummer/drumming forums but really like this site quite a bit.

Hi,

my name is Karsten, I am from Germany. I play drums for about 1,5 years and started teaching myself with DTXplorer, now I bought DTX550k. I always dreamed of my own drum, but got my first drum with mid-30.

I like the Drummer World a lot and often watch videos and bios from famous drummers.

Take care and keep on drumming!

Howdy all, looks like there's a format for these posts, which I'll abide, but besides that, I hope everyone is well and drumming often. I play both acoustic and electronic drum kits plus a few other instruments.

real name: Prefer not to state.

age: 28

how long been playing: Never really counted. Started jamming with friends somewhere around 10 years ago, now we play out and record "in a band".

origin of user name: A nickname that's followed me in the real world.

top 5 drummers: JP Gaster, Benny Greb, Josh Freese, Elvin Jones, Papa Jo Jones

make of drumkit: Tama all birch supers 4pc with 'hyperdrive' high tom. - Tama 5pc fusion rockers kit birch/mahogany - Roland td-3 based kit that I put together a piece at a time.

make of cymbal: Meinl and zils

where do you practice: Garage, practice space, on my car's surfaces at lights.

are you in a band/s: The Microbials. Demo soon.

covers or originals: originals - I only "cover" things for practice. Music has too many possibilities to get stuck on someone else's ideas.

what style of music: Rock, jazz, fusion, punk, anything with a good groove.

favourite take out food: Indian

country: US

one really odd fact about yourself: I hate machine-like drumming unless it's a machine doing the beat.

how did you start drumming: I played bass/guitar for a long time with friends in HS, one day, I sat at the crappy sunlite kit in the room and we all had a grand time, stuck with it, and we all still play together (almost all of us, anyhow..)

Default Hello my name is Sam

What up fellow drummers! I've been on this forum for a while now and I realized I never formally introduced myself!

My name is Sam and I'm from St. Louis, Missouri. I started drumming when I was 7. It was an "on and off" sorta thing until I was about 13 and since then I haven't looked back. I may not be the best, but it doesn't matter to me because I only play for fun.

I'm in a band called Stay For Her (I hate the name but I don't care as long as were somewhat decent). We basically formed in the studio when I was asked to lay down some drums and our current vocalist was asked to sing. We decided to stick around and now were making songs a million times better than before. In fact we just recorded a few new tracks that have to be mixed and mastered still, but should be out soon. If you want to hear our old sh*tty stuff go to myspace.com/stayforher. Again, the new tracks will be up in a few weeks :)

I also do some drum covers on my own time if you wanna check them out. You can obviously see how I've progressed through the years, which is an exciting thing to see for me especially. Link to my youtube channel:

Wow really close I'm right next door in Kirkwood!
Well hey I guess transactions would be easy. If you have anything that you want to sell with college and all you could let me know. Although don't get your hopes too high because there's not a whole lot I need...
And if you're taking your stuff to college thats fine too...
(You wouldn't happen to have a Bosphorus Versa ride would you?) :p
