    Killing Goliath Live Set (first live recording ever)

    Hey guys, long time no see. I find that I'm nowhere as much on this forum as when I first started drumming almost seven years ago, but I still hold everyone of you in high regard. I've learned so much here, and still today nuggets of wisdom I've found here are popping up in my memory...

    Review request: right hand ride playing

    Hi everyone! long time since I posted something because I've been rediculously busy with a lot of things (including becoming a father). But since you have always provided me with the best advise I come to you with my current challenge. I've been playing in a hardcore band for a year and in 3...

    Sabian Vault prognosis

    Does any of you drummers know what the prognosis is for my most beloved 18" Vault crash? I forgot to put a screw on top of the cymbalsleeve this morning so the crash had direct contact with the metal for a few songs. It's sound is not affected yet, but will it crack any further?

    Custom floortom conversion

    Hey guys, I've always wanted to be able to play my 16" tom as a kick if the situation would ask for it. Now I found some stuff on the internet that converts those toms for you, but they are all rather expensive (like this one). I could do it cheaper than that offcourse, so I made a sketch and...

    Creative setups

    Hi guys, since I've recently purchased a 7 piece drumkit I've got a lot of extra options to set up my kit. I'm running the usual 8,10,12 rack and 14,16 floor tom to the right at this moment. I used to play 2 up 2 down, but since I have an 8" that doesn't work any more. I want to keep using the...

    To be great in the UK

    Who has to write about you? What websites are popular, what newspapers, magazines and radio diskjockeys should know you? Theoretically (is that a word?) speaking, if you wanted to create a hype, who would be able to iniate the hype. Who's opinion matters in the UK? Just some questions I hope...

    my 'little' sister singing, me drumming

    I am the most proud brother alive right now: my little sister, she's 18 now, had to perform for her exams last week and she wanted me to drum on the song. It's all about her offcourse, and the song wasn't really a 'drum-song', but I am...

    Reading music for beginners

    Last wednesday was my first drum lesson ever. I got a sheet with music at home now I want to learn to play. One measure confuses me though. It seems to me I have to play one-e-and-a two-e-(nothing)-a 3-and four. But, it could also be one e and a two e and 3 and four. Could you help me out...

    My cooking gear

    Well, today I was cooking and needed a lid. Not big enough lids in the house though, so I had to get something else. Now it turns out that my 20" Pearl ride makes a great lid :-). Sounds like crap but does very well in the kitchen. Finally a good use for that thing. The food was delicious by...
