    Jimmy D'anda

    Couldn't find a thread on him so I made one, He was the drummer for the band Bulletboys back in the 80s, whether you like the band or not(I personally am a Fan), you can't deny his power, groove and style. He was one of the few people at the bonzo bash events that truely captured the groove of...

    So I'm trying to figure out how to get a certain snare sound, its difficult to explain, I have a few examples(which may not be to everyone's liking, but this is about the sound of the snare not so much the music) Its basically a high poppy, cracky sound, mostly from late 80s early 90s hard rock...

    Getting the best kick drum sound

    Hey guys, I've been trying really hard to get the best kick sound I can, I use a 26x14 kick drum and I'm currently using the John Bonham felt strip technique, which has helped considerably but I still feel like there could be more boom. Any and all suggestion appreciated!

    Stupid question, GC Drum-off

    I decided to enter the drum-off this year for fun, and was wondering if anyone knew if they provide the transport for the out of state rounds of the competition? not being cocky or anything just curious if i happened to make it that far.

    Best for Live Performance

    I know theres probably already a thread but I didn't really wanna look for it, anyway I've been a coated head guy for a very long time and recently started thinking what would be better for mixing and clarity for live performance. The mic situation for my kit right now is usually only the snare...

    BJ Zampa

    I just recently came across him and hes criminally underrated, hard hitting, and has pretty good groove. he's played for; Dokken, Yngwie Malmsteen, Tony Maclpine, and is the current backbone for House Of Lords. BJ drum solo:

    Troy Patrick Farrell

    He's not the most technical player, but he's a great live performer, adds a little something to every song he plays that visually looks badass while not taking away from the performance, kind of like a Vik Foxx, both drummers really made me wanna step up my game as a live performer. He also has...
