    A stray stick into your rack tom

    I don't think I've played any of my kits at length without poking my stick straight into the shell of the rack tom directly in front of my snare, and either leaving a pockmark or small scratch. I'm really bummed about doing it to my new kit, it's the tiniest little spot but now I know it's there...

    Revisiting the music you played with in your formative years?

    Bit of a rant/ramble ahead, as per title, when I started out, the only way I knew how to learn how to play drums was playing along to records. I've progressed from there and learned to practice using systems/metronomes but I still like to play along with music and I feel like I've gone a bit...

    Black Cow

    Hey guys, I haven't done much with youtube lately and I haven't done anything on the new dw kit so here's something mediocre. I had a strong coffee at 8pm and was full of energy so I setup the camera and tried to nail this old song. It's so bloody hard to play with a record and be note perfect...

    Tempo difficulty

    I think I am noticing myself having some problems with tempo lately, and even losing the pulse a bit. For those that don't know me as a drummer, I think timing and feel are important and I put time towards practicing them. Here is a random video of me playing a song to give you some idea (I...

    DW ebay disaster

    I have done plenty of online trading, usually within Australia, but I finally ran out of luck the other week, it turns out the local drum repairer would find this too hard to colour match so I think I'll just play the drum and enjoy its sound rather than cry about the condition, which kinda...

    New perspectives

    Lately it feels like everything I know about playing drums is assumed knowledge, like I've only just begun - It strikes me as some sort of milestone of experience. There is no longer much that's mystifying about the pop rock beat, fills, song structures - playing drums seems to be more of a...

    The amazing Chris Coleman

    Has anyone else noticed how great he is? I got to meet him and watch a 6hr workshop about 2 years ago and he just came to Sydney the other week and did a clinic. I've been thinking I should probably start watching his performances like I used to watch Virgil's, start picking up some new ideas...

    New beats - the different series'

    Hey guys, I just sold some evo hats and am keen on some newbeats... I'm not a hipster, but a backline kit I used had a pair and I've had them on my mind ever since. They were older, definitely not the brand new ones with the big A logo. I probably won't get an opportunity to try them but I'm...

    I want to talk about LED lighting

    As far as I know we've never discussed led lights in drums here before. Does anyone own or have experience with them? I just bought a set of them, it was on clearance and a few of my friends have been bugging me to put LEDS in my acrylic kit so I caved... it's a drumlite brand one for an...

    Which would you keep?

    Most of you know I am gear crazy, enough said about that. So I have had a tama birch bubinga for maybe a bit over a year and it's a stunning kit, probably the prettiest kit I own, I have been using that kit as a gig kit for anything that my little bop kit can't handle. The other week my...

    EVANS nylon bass drum patches...

    ... are eating my felt beaters, just noticed this. I know this because the same beaters do not wear down on my other bass drum (which has a smooth patch). This isn't good IMO, I have them on a couple of heads and now I want to get rid of them. Just wondering how to remove them from the heads...

    Ducks DW

    I bought this kit on Monday and I've been on a bit of a high ever since. I've been curious about DW lately, but discouraged by the price of them. This was much cheaper than any of the others around so I made the 3 hr drive to pick it up. Specs: Satin oil dw collectors, the snare is natural...

    Don't look at me, I'm hideous

    I have been on this forum for about 4 years.. When I first joined I had 1 drum kit and an extra snare.. Now I have rooms full of stuff.. And after picking up a new kit tonight I finally feel a bit ashamed, a bit embarrassed. I have put another kit up for sale in light of the new acquisition but...

    In the mood for vanilla

    I played a gig a few weeks back and the backline kit provided was a pearl reference pure. It had 10, 12, 14, 16 toms and it left a really good impression on me. I wouldn't describe it as unique sound but it kinda makes me want something a bit more standard. My tama and mapex kits are both...

    An hour of drums and bass!

    Sorry, this is a bit of a driveby post as I don't come here often anymore. But check it out, it was a really fun jam. Open to feedback... I was playing some sort of 14x8 yamaha birch snare, it does have a ring to it.

    Mapex armory?

    Does anyone have one of these? I just sold a kit and an armory 6pce has popped up online with a bunch of ahead bags, great price too. I have a small tour at the end of the year, I might check it out, and poach the ahead bags if I decide not to keep it. Looks like it has all the same features...

    Trick pedal retrofit chain drive

    So I've bought a used trick pro 1v, knowing I'm not a direct drive or longboard guy... Call it boredom or admiration for their build quality. Oh, it was cheap too, I'll definitely get my $$$ back if I don't like it. I see a chain retrofit option on eBay.. It's expensive. Has anyone tried it...
