    How many pedals have you owned?

    A few months ago, I acquired pedal no. 5: a Czarcie Kopyto double pedal. I think this is the one! But then again, I always do haha

    Best electronic drum sets in my opinion

    I have a TD-30K. It's quite good, but I'm planning to sell it to move to an EAD10-based drum setup. Feel it's much, much better. Then again, I'll probably change my mind and keep the kit, heh.

    Yamaha EAD10 with RTOM Blackholes and low volume cymbals

    Thanks! I like it even more than my Roland TD-30K. Planning to put that on the market. My eventual idea is to incorporate a couple of kick triggers so I get defined bass notes. Then record using this kit. Final step will be to use Drumtracker for sample replacement with Superior Drummer 3...

    Yamaha EAD10 with RTOM Blackholes and low volume cymbals

    Hi, I really think this has a lot of potential. So much so that I'm planning on selling my Roland TD-30. I have RTom Blackholes on my Gretsch Renown and Zildjian L80 cymbals, and just acquired the Yamaha EAD10. Sounds so much more expressive than an e-kit. Just take the hi-hat sizzle for...

    Room in a room build

    Looks awesome! Can't wait to see it finished with a kit inside!

    Playing in odd timings: How do you make use of the space?

    Sorry for the late reply, been away from the forums for a while practising. Some good ideas here, thank you all!

    Playing in odd timings: How do you make use of the space?

    Hey drummer dudes, I have been listening to a lot of progressive metal and its sub-genres and have really started taking drums more seriously. I mean who would have thought there's more than 4/4? Just by moving out of that comfort zone, I've started to experiment with ghost notes and odd feel...

    Hey all, this is a video I shot playing these pedals in 5/4. Putting in the practice hours definitely helps! Is it all on account of the pedal? Maybe not, but they sure are fun to play on!

    Ugh, what do you do to a guest who comes into your house and spits at your table? Exactly what the Drummerworld mods have done, throw them out. If that idiot wants democracy, I vote we permanently ban his IP address.

    At risk of being attacked over my playing (a clear and present danger with the troll venting at how we can't even form opinions for ourselves), here's a short demo of the pedals being played. Sorry the room is dark and the camera angle is terrible. I was triggering Superior Drummer 3 with a...

    Definitely not the echo chamber you live in. Thankfully, anyone can read the responses in the thread (as well as other threads) and make up their own minds about the value of your responses.

    Join A Sub Par Band Just To Get Back Out There?

    The way I see it, what have you got to lose? Remember, this was a first jam, and often it takes regular practice in order for everything to come together. As you said, perhaps they were having an off day. Given that you have been without a band for a long time, I think you'd do no harm to...

    Soundbrenner Core Review - Anyone?

    I'd be interested in knowing more about this device too. Seems like a cool way to keep time.

    EDIT: Killed the video, will post a new one later today. Hi, a short video of the pedals in action. I apologise for not being able to get a multi-cam video going, too many things going on. Any errors in the playing are obviously my fault, but these are very smooth pedals! Here are some pix to...

    Tama Dyna Sync Pedal.

    ... And here I was thinking I was the only person being told that my arguments do not matter by that clown... The Dyna Sync looks pretty damn awesome, imo. I think one of the reasons for them having more power than regular direct drives is the shorter footboard.

    I don't really play too fast, topping out at about 200-210 bpm if I want to play fast for any meaningful stretch of time. This grind track is about the fastest I ever played on a recording: I do play in a band, but I'm not sure it's working out. I'm more interested in my solo project, for...

    Part 3: THE BAD 1) Really, really expensive. 2) Seems like a lot of borrowed design elements, even if they all seem to have been improved 3) Spring tension adjustment can be difficult and you have to get down on your hands and knees to do it.

    Part 2 of review: PLAYABILITY: I'll try to add a video to this section, based on my limited playing ability. But I'll put down a few thoughts: 1) The direct drive pedal is very smooth and there's no lag between the master and slave pedals. 2) The pedals hit much harder than I thought they...

    I added an explanation in my review, forgot about the hoop clamp. Also added a bit about the direct drive and adjustments. The hoop clamp is an interesting mechanism in that there are screws underneath the board that allow you to position the pedal at variable distances from the bass drum in...
