    Need a more "rock" setup for a project, is this idea insane or what?

    I'm auditioning for a band playing much harder rock than I've been playing recently. The last few years, I've been playing in a country/rock/pop type of band, in a standard 1-up 1-down config with a single crash on the left side and a ride and a second crash on the right, with sometimes an extra...

    Difference in Zildjian/Sabian packaging or a problem with the store?

    So I was shopping for cymbals a couple of weeks ago, and I decided to take a chance on a Zildjian box set (the K box set with a 20" ride, 14" hats, 16" and 18" Dark thin crashes).

    Check these kids out. The littlest one has a pretty good sense of rhythm and they all actually get all the little stops and breaks in the song. Watch till the end, the outro is really good, too!!

    Review: Gretsch Legend brass snare (plus a bonus S-Hoop review!)

    OK, I searched on DW for a review of these snares and didn't see any. I guess no one has played these yet, so I'll post a review. I purchased a 14x6.5 Gretsch Legend brass snare online a month ago. Normally I would wait to hear the drum and/or read some reviews from people that I trust...

    Movember! Moustaches for charity!!

    It’s Movember, the month formerly known as November, which is dedicated to growing moustaches and raising awareness and funds for men’s health. I have joined the movement and will be donating my upper lip to the cause for 30 days. My moustache (Mo) will spark conversations, and no doubt generate...
