Default Deafdrummer

Hello!

Last night, I sort of "came to" in terms of a direction in music. I ought to introduce myself, I guess. I'm a profoundly, prelingually deaf lady in Houston, Texas, and I have played drums off and on since 1977, and I played bass guitar for a small number of those years. I have played in school bands (marching, concert, symphonic, jazz band, percussion ensembles, solos, even choir for my senior year in high school). I played for America's Youth in Concert in 1983 and United State Collegiate Wind Band in 1984 (in case you're looking for me). A rock band playing covers and writing/playing originals was my last gig a few years ago. Since that went down in flames on stage, I have floated on my own, trying to find my direction, as I didn't like what I saw.

I went off on a trip to visit family last fall, and it was right at the time that the Bastrop Complex fires started near Austin, Texas, and I had friends who lost their homes, their animals, everything... And it was so hot outside that I nearly fell sick during a volunteer outing. I had a lot of thinking to do about my life, with no sense of direction on music at that time, my friends' tragedies, and the direction that my life was going in financial research. Visiting family in a much cooler place helped me to decide to pull back from underground financial research, pull back from playing drums for a while and see where the chips fall. I also realized that I needed a change in my life, which I'm still figuring out.

But last night, I realized that I needed get back on the drum set in a new direction. I can't stop playing. I did that last time, for 17 years, and it just about destroyed me. This morning, I woke up feeling refreshed, feeling like I have a renewed purpose in life. I just played drums for a bit today. It's the first time in a long time that I've felt like I'm playing with a purpose.

I guess I ought to explain my background a little more. As I was classically trained, I felt like I needed to get away from what was thought to be "the right way to play music." Like you have to play cross handed on a drum set, you are not a musician if you're playing double pedals, rock 'n roll is about worshipping satan, or it's not music, just noise. WHATEVER. I feel like people have forgotten or never understood in the first place that music is to be enjoyed for what it is. I had to break out of that by starting with correcting some bad hand grip problems in my right hand, and then learning to play open-handed so that I can lead with either hand. And then I learned double pedal so that I can lead with either foot and either hand at any time. And then, instead of joining a Jazz band or symphony, I joined a rock band down here (even moved here for it!) and got my feet wet in it. Afterwards, I felt lost, because I ran into rock music screaming away from establishment music because I felt caged up in a formal music setting. One note off, and you've ruined it for the night. Rock still wasn't right for me, even though it's fun to play. I feel like I need even more freedom than that. It'll be a while before I get a good feel for what I want to do, but I'll say that I want to go off into left field, a place that is littered with didgeridoos. I want to see about building at least for myself a "drums & didge" band, and if someone wants to layer extra parts on top of the drone that forms the basis of this music, they're welcome to do so, but isn't required.

I have to think about what my performance environment looks like, where I perform, WHAT I'm performing, and so on.

Let's see if this direction pans out.

I wholeheartedly agree to get back in drumming, any serious time off is always a regret later. Doing a didgeridoo band sounds awesome, and music is whatever is inside of you, there are standards but there aren't any rules set in stone. I'm also curious of your perspective of playing as a deaf musician, I would imagine you have some wonderful insights.

I also am curious as how you get along on the drums with your disability.

I can imagine being partially or completely deaf would definately be a struggle at points.

The fact are back playing again, is great. Hopefully you continue.

You could use a computer and loop someone playing dig, or find a dedicated player.

You could theoretically be your own band with samples, MIDI and whatever for a while UNTIL you find other players....

Just a thought.

I went for almost a year of not playing before I started having problems with depression due to not playing, and the anxiety of never palying again. The first tent imes, maybe, I thought about how much REWORK was needing to be "back in shape"

Get past that, and you'll be right as rain.

Your an inspiration , being a drummer, and deaf. Hats off to you.

Default Come on say hello - you might as well - there's DRUM PORN too! :)

Hey folks,

I have read this forum pretty much every day for about 5 years and figured it's probably about time I contributed :)

I have been a busy gigging drummer over the last 4 years doing between 60-70 gigs a year and in 2 bands; British Indy and a 80's hair-metal tribute band \m/ lol

I dropped the Indy band as it was to much and started a 90's Grunge tribute band. I'm now on a more more manageable 30ish gigs a year.

One of the perks of being a busy gigging drummer have been the opportunity to re-invest and improve the gear - 2/3rds of gig money on gear... the rest on beer :)

WARNING - drum porn follows...

For the Grunge band - Yamaha Oak Customs with Sabian HHX Evoluation Cymbals:

This kit has wood hoops now... and slightly less cowbell ;)

Thanks, everyone.

What I plan to do is add the didgeridoo as another instrument to play for myself. I want to create the drum track myself, and then play the didge over that.

I've not heard of Aneta Brodski. I will look her up quickly. Thanks!

I've always learned a song with sheet music, and then everyone else plays to me. As for didgeridoo music, there is no way I'm going to try to imitate someone on a song. Everyone has their own song.

One of the most famous percussionist in the world is deaf, and she's great too!
Her name is Evelyn Glennie.

I'm going to check out that movie.

I knew there was a deaf DJ at some point, the vibrations in that made it easy for him.

How did you start drumming- You'll laugh. I bought wifey Rockband for xbox a few years back. I played plastic drums with her for a couple days, and enjoyed it. But the plastic drums and play-along by flashing lights weren't my thing, so I quit her "band" and gradually picked up a real set.

One really odd fact about yourself- I come from a classical background. I have a bach. music in oboe. I've played lots of classical guitar in school, too. On the outside, I got tired of trying to find decent people to play with, so I went back to classical piano since that works well solo. That's still my main instrument. But I really enjoy drumming, too.

Hey Guys,
Its a Rodgers XP8 kit from 1983, probably not a classic. It is built like a tank and sounds like thunder. It has the extended shells 12x12,13x13,16x16 and a 18x22 bass. It has played a lot of gigs and is a little rough around the edges but I love the sound I get out of it.
I will put up some shots of it. I am running Paiste Alpha's 14,16,17,18 thin crashes and a zildgen sweet ride and old zildgen hats, The Alphas really surprised me and didn't break the bank.

Max

My late 70's XP8 kit, so I know exactly what you have. Classic enough, in my book. The first "all maple" shell. Set the stage for everyone else.

Default Greetings from Quebec, Canada!

Heyyyy!

I'm new to this place, and I'm going to buy my new drum kit this weekend, switching from an old "TRAK" drum kit worth something like 100$ to a TAMA SUPERSTAR... While I'm here I need you guys to tell me if this is a good deal!

Here is the picture, if any of you can identify the model and make... I'd love you!


I'm getting all this for 600$ + another 500$ in cymbals (Hi-Hat, 17' Crash, 20' China, Ride) all Zildjian. Going to inquire on the exact models. I was told this kit was worth more than 3000$ fully equipped (with all the stands, and the kit itself, and the cymbals... etc) I'll take a picture when I get it!

So yeah... Also, wanted to know where I can get 2 extra toms for it, since it only comes with one! It comes with the 12' tom, and I'd need the same set toms, the 8' and the 10'.

Soooooooooo a little about me...

I'm a french canadian, I listen to technical progressive melodic death metal ! Haha yeah, complicated stuff. Probably gave you a headache too! :) My goal is to eventually be able to create and play this style. For now, I'm a newbie and started playing 2 months ago. Had a hard time with the money beat but after 2 months I'm now playing some bullet for my valentine, which isn't really bad I guess! Didn't take any classes or courses either.

I'm a self-teaching person, I'll rarely go and pay for teaching services, the internet is a vast learning place!

So yeah, I love hockey, and I follow the Detroit Red Wings since I was a little kid, even though I live in Montreal. My main interests are computers, hockey and drumming (+ music of so many genres, mainly progressive death).

Glad to meet you all and I hope I get a lot of information here from you all! I hope I can become something pretty good in the upcoming months/years ! :)

~ Sébastien
