So I was thinking about getting a DW5000 double pedal, or a 7000, 8000, Really I just want to know which one won't...

    Grip Too Tight?

    I was just playing the drums when my finger (right index) started to get a blister. I put some surgical tape and a band-aid on it. I usually get blisters on my middle and ring fingers. Can someone please point out why I'm getting blisters after only 15 minutes of playing? This isn't a pain-free...

    Some unfortunate things as a Teenager... READ!

    I don't get to play anymore, because my father hates drumming and punk-ish music, and thinks I'm on drugs (I'm not). I get drug tested almost 3 times a month, and I haven't even tried anything yet! He is very overprotective, which is why I'm starting to turn into a kid who goes out late at night...

    DW Hardcore Beater Review.

    I recently got a DW Hardcore Beater, and I must say WOW. If your looking for that "clicky" or punchy bass sound, this does it! I was looking for an ADTR bass sound with little tone, with really just a click (sounds awesome), and I got it perfectly! I have a Remo PS3 Head with a Falam Slam, and a...

    Help me improve my overall technique in fills and timing?

    So as most of you know, I'm constantly questioned on my playing ability, because I want new sets and equipment. ANYWAY 1) I've been having trouble with timing after fills, and my left hand follows my right on off beats, and it sounds TERRIBLE. 2) My para-diddles need work as does my...

    Remo bass drum head help.

    Hey guys, As you all know I love to get new gear, and hope this isn't a crappy thread like others! Anyway, I have a Remo Powerstoke 3 batter head, with a Falam Slam, and a Remo Coated Ambassador on my resonant side (with two 4" O's). The bass sound isn't exactly what I want for it, and its the...

I have always loved the look and...

    Remo head switch... HELP!

    I have a Gretsch Catalina Maple, with Remo coated Ambassadors on top, with clear ambassadors on bottom. Its about time to switch batter heads, and I was thinking of coated emperors.

    Sad Truth about my Gibraltar stands.....

    I was playing today and my Gibraltar stands were wiggling and rocking back and forth! I went to my closet and pulled out some old SP (Sound Percussion) 30$ stands, and to be honest I like these more! I don't really have any more wiggle on my crash's and splash's stands. Good thing is that I'm...
