    Drum shops near San Francisco

    Hey everyone, what are the best drum shops near S.F.? I'm willing to drive upwards of 2-3 hrs to get to the really really good ones. So, anywhere in N. Cali is okay for me. Let me know, thanks!

    Drum solo live

    Wow there's a ton of awesome solos posted here lately including that giant solo thread so I feel like I'm coming a bit late to the party. Here's a solo I did after a 1 and a half hour set during a gig. I was running on 3 hours of sleep and booze fumes so I wasn't as creative as I would've liked...

    Drum recording with 2 mics

    Hey, here's a little thing I played today. It's pretty loose and recorded with only 2 mics (no kick mic). I'm in the process of getting a couple more mics. Let me know what you think, thanks! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=odSRJ0cJkE0&feature=channel_video_title

    Song from a fill-in gig

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pm5twbVwupU Hey guys, just noticed someone uploaded a video from a gig where I filled in for the local band Township. It's kinda a slow paced groove song. Whoever taped it felt the need to have a giant pole blocking me the whole time! Anyways, please provide...

    Getting auditions?

    Just curious, where do you guys get most of your auditions for good bands/gigs? Is it through networking, socializing at shows, online, or somewhere else?

    Just ordered the DW 5000ADH heel-less pedal..

    So I just ordered this heel-less pedal online, hopefully I'll get it soon. I'm really looking forward to it! I have a DW 8000 (which I'll plan to sell) and since I started playing heel down almost exclusively, I noticed that thick heel getting in the way and not making it very comfortable to...

    Decreased time on the kit, increased time on pads/pillow

    Hey guys, love this forum as always, and need a little bit of advice. Since joining a new band, I've decreased time on my kit from 6 days a week (1-2 hrs each) down to 2 days a week (3-4hrs). This happened about a week ago and is due to logistics. Last practice was the first time in a long time...

    Ludwig 26" Blue Sparkle

    Here's a sneak peak of my "dream" kit. She's a mutt. I'm moving her soon and will get better pictures when I'm able to. She sounds better than she looks, and she looks great. It's taken me about 6 months to find all the pieces that work, and finally got the last piece, the floor tom, a week ago...

    Tuning a 4-piece

    Hey guys, I want to share how I tune my 4-piece cause it's actually pretty simple. I tune my snare and floor tom an octave apart, and my rack and kick drum an octave apart. As for specific notes, well that's the next step! But I'm quite happy with the simplicity and sounds i get from this method...

    Taking the right gig...

    Here's a hypothetical... Say you are offered a touring gig with a band of which you aren't entirely fond of their music or sound. For whatever reason you don't like their sound but you decide to take it, it pays something and you could use the tour as a means to network, and most importantly the...

    Aqua Coated Superkick I fell flat

    Hey guys so I finally got a chance to switch from my coated PS3 to the coated Superkick I I ordered a while back for my 20x24" maple bass drum. I'm looking for a low-end punchy sound akin to Bonham and more recently Patrick Carney on the Brothers by Black Keys. I'm using coated emps over coated...
