    YouTube will destroy drumming!

    Hahahaha...my title is a bit of a stretch, and being sarcastic...but in part, it's true. I think that YouTube is an amazing resource. I have learned a ton from watching pros that I admire. I personally have never gotten into the "YouTube Drummers," the guys who post really amazing videos on...

    Do me a favor?

    Hey guys, If there is a problem with doing this, mods, I apologize, but it didn't look to be against the rules. Also, I thought of putting it in the off-topic area, but it would actually really help my drumming career, so I put it in here. Anyway, the singer in my band was nominated for the...

    Natural wood look or not?

    Hey all...if one of the mods could make this a poll, that would make me smile, but if not, that's fine, I'll just read all the answers. My question for you is this: Which do you like better? An all natural looking finish (wood finish) / a lacquer or wrap finish (that doesn't look...
