    Paiste 602's?

    My local shop normally only carries Sabian and zildjian cymbals and I'm decently familiar with their series I recently went in and they have started integrating some paiste and meinl into the shop. I picked up some new sticks and toured the shop like I normally do checking new inventory. They...

    Dave weckls " how to develop technique". My head is spinning

    First drum DVD I've ever watched. I'm mostly self taught with the help of a few drum lessons and help from friend drummers. Itsgonna take a few viewings to take all this in. His rebound and relaxed techniques kind of open my mind. Great little DVD. After a first run through, I definitely want to...

    Just tried maple sticks for first time, love the way my drums sound

    So, went to the music shop today and decided to pick up a set of 5a maples, normally playing hickory with the only other experience being red hickory. My meridian maples still have the stock pinstripes after a ec2 experimenting gone wrong. I found from the drivers seat that the maple sticks...

    Hi, been really getting into Eric Clapton since my father in law got me a DVD of Eric Clapton Live at the Montreux with Phil Collins on the drums. Just some great guitar and drums, really relaxing in a way. Grab a 12 pack and hit play and great fun. Looking through youtube videos, he's really...

    I'm getting into cymbal research since in the past 3 years I've got quite the jelly bean assortment, my stuff just doesn't suit my needs for sound at the moment. Their a great set but not that versatile. I was looking at Sabian brochure and reading about the hh series. I'm goin to go in to the...

    Drumless track sources?

    Hey, just wondering if some of you veterans could hook me up with some spots to access some Drumless tracks. I've found some stuff on freedrumlessons.com which was nice because they had an optional click track on it but the stuff seemed kind of cheesy and repetitive. Basically I'm lookin for...

    Shuffle and pocket groove, what are the definitions?

    Before anyone says to search the internet, the Internet sucks nowadays. Takes 30 minutes to find any relevant information. Now watching some videos of Steve Jordan, the titles refer to pocket grooves sometimes. Comments on the video talk about how he always stas in pocket. What does this drummer...

    Getting better after short break periods?

    Just wondering if I'm the only one who seems to think they get better after like a 5 day break. I normally only play when the wife is gone since when I play the whole house is just chaos. I don't blame her, you can't do nothing when the drums are going in the house, it's loud. She's in the...

    Why does my floor Tom sound louder then my bass drum?

    Is this just an illusion from the front seat. I've never really payed attention to the past cour months with my new meridian maples. My old westburies had a closet in the bass so they were naturally quieter. My wife doesn't want to experiment with me and play while I stand out front. Just from...

    How to tackle a song? Thinking of joining my first band.

    So I'm 24 now and started playing my first year of college at 20. My first kit was a westbury and spent most my time learning the basics and grooving, I was a big metal head back then and just loved my thrash metal fast paced tom fills and double kicks. My music tastes have since changed and I...

    Definition of pro cymbals?

    So I was chatting with some drum buddies today. Where I'm from most shops deal Sabian and zildjian. We were chatting about cymbals and anyways, they started referring to intermediate cymbals. This confused me since I use the words pro and beginner. They referred to the aa, aax and a zildjian and...

I've been using the sticks for awhile since their about 7 or 8 bucks vs 12 for the zildjian, pro mark, Vic firths. Offered at the two local shops we have. Just wondering how far west and south these sticks are...
