The post about stu's woodshed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It can be really hard to get humor across in writing, but that was great:)

I use my kit to practise on, but i do have a drumpad for the really nerdy stuff;)
I'm also currently considering getting one of those small 6" rubbery pad's so i can have have it with me wherever i go - Now i just drum on the sole (or soul) of my shoe if i cant find anything else to beat - Do you want to see a picture of my shoes, lol?

I only have an e-kit right now. I practice on acoustic sets out of the house at friends place or I rent space occasionally ($15/hour including the kit!). I normally run the e-kit into a guitarport, set to "No Amp" and play along with MP3s stored on the PC using the guitar port. It has looping built right in so I can loop pieces of tunes to get through them correctly, and can also play them at half speed for learning. I play this thing at all hours of the night through headphones.. great for practice.

The TV is for watching drum DVDs and for the kids Xbox. My beloved LP is also in the pics. I love her. That classical guitar is a little $100 cheap plywood thing that is my "beater", that amazingly holds it's tune for weeks on end and sounds pretty good.

Here's my world:

A friend of mine got it for me, from his drum teacher who is sort of endorsed by Vic Firth or something. It also comes with the Mark Wessels "A Fresh Approach to the Snare Drum" package from Vic Firth. I have that one and the poster is still in the book.

Hey guys, here is my practice area. My sister and her boyfriend are always downstairs where my kit is set up, so i had to work around that. I really want to get one of the Vic Firth Rudiment posters, does anyone know where i can get that? Otherwise i might have to copy them all down from the site. Which i cant wait to do.

The Vic Firth Posters, both rudiments and groove essentials I got for free at a drum clinic, there were a bunch of them laying around everywhere.

here is a DW practice set.

Sometimes I put up the 12" snare from my Yamaha Hip Gig Jr.

I use rutes on the cymbals and a stick in the left hand so I can hear the pads and the cymbals somewhat balanced but I'm going to get the HQ cymbal silencers so I can use regular sticks.

Those are Matador bongos behind the music stand.

When I see photos of drumsets in corners of house or apartment rooms I think "Wow, that must really be loud".

so practice spaces. our garage is over 200 years old hence the broken plaster and junk everywhere but i wouldn't swap it for the world. the walls are 2 FEET THICK!

my kit's a bit of a hybrid. pearl target+ tama starclassic+ sonor, pearl and tama hardware+zildjian and sabian cymbals....?



well now i know the pearl bass drum's backwards but i was dismantling the kit when i remembered to take a pic
this was in one of the sheds on our farm where we had a big gang of people over for my sisters 21'st, long story, in the end gig still kicked ass





this is our practice space its been cleared out since this pic, but it had a really good atmosphere when it was like this





had to post this one. its just really random to see the kit on the farm (stage we built ourselves) and our fields stretching back for miles!!


(before somebody says it i jus wanna make this clear........
THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS TOO MUCH DUCT TAPE!!!!)

How long have you been playing tablas? I've been at it for about six years and so far I'm leanred only a few talas, mainly chatasri jati (four beats) variations. I have some tabla playing at www.terrasonus.com on a song called Third Chakra.

I have a funny way of practising. Sometimes when I either can't go down to my practising shed because my brother is practising guitar or because my neighbours are feeling particularly inhospitable (long words lol) I go to Anderton's music store in Guildford and try out the electric drums, because they are so lax they'll let you spend an hour there if you really want, and they have the roland v-drums, which are great. Outdated pic of the store:



I also went all the way to southampton today, because my parents had a day off work and wanted to go shopping. Southampton, by the way, sounds like far but they have the best shops lol! I went to Sound Control and spent a while on the huge v-drum kit. This one:



Eventually the staff at Anderton's will get to know me as the 'funny little feller who comes in here and spends 'alf and hour on the ol' rolands.'

In my case, I am so lucky, ha, ha, ha... after YEARS of not being able to play at home, at my job, one of the important aspects for my "drafting" was my own, exclusive room for drums, right at the office... two doors from mine... Man... it is great I have 2 acoustic sets there ALL THE TIME... ha, ha, ha... can't complain.
I am fortunate in that I have a set here at my house, in my practice room. (I cut my garage in half, insulated it, fixed it up and gave myself a 13X16 practice room) I also have a 6 piece ddrum set at church, my guitarist has a 5 piece slingerland set at his house and my other guitarist has a 5 piece tama set at his house. So I'm covered wherever there is practice.

Nice and simple.
For when I can't use my drums for practice (or if I dont want to) my computer desk doubles as my 'practice area'.
I put my copy of Stick Control on the computer (otherwise it would be a pain reading the book on the desk) and for the metronome i use the good ol free online metronome.

Once I get a double pedal I'll be making my own kick practice pad and sticking it under the desk.
So even while browsing the net (or even playing video games) I can work on my double bass.

dunno, i ve seen them in quite a few studios and was told they take out 'unwanted ambient frequencies'. they are usually a colum of soft material wedged into the corners.
for me the water cooler would do other wise i would be beering it up too much in my work place - so no fridge.

I have a shed in my garden, currently used by me and my brother for music practice - my brother is really into guitars. We are about to have it soundproofed heavily and linked up with electricity, and this is supposedly what we will do with it when it is finished. I've also put what I hope my drum kit will look like by then :D

Ok, here is my wisdom woodshed.


It's a Roland TD-3 V-drum. I have bought this marvellous toy last year. Before that, i have played almost 10 years on a practice pad! I also own an old Ludwig 1965 kit but i have not played on it since i live in an appartment... Almost 10 yers without hearing a drum sound. I know that those electronic drums are a little ''dry'' to play but it's better that than nothing.

Thanks for looking.

HA! that trashcan part really made me laugh. Thats actualy a really good idea, and is making me want to get a cheap bass pedal so i can do that on my computer desk.
