    Hi there, I recently got a pair of Axis Longboards 2nd hand. It was fairly beat up but after a good clean and tune up its pretty good.

    Can house angle affect drumming?

    So 7 months ago I moved into a new house, and to be peaceful to the neighbours I set up my ekit to practice on and kept my acoustic at the studio for band practice. A key point I would like to point out is my new house leans forward slightly, just enough to notice , but not enough to cause a...

    Extreme snare vibration off centre...

    Okay so a few days ago I got a brand new Tama Slp Power Maple drum. I also received my new heads too on friday, and yesterday I put them on the drum to seat them. I seat them by putting them on, tightening it up a bit (not excessively) and leaving it overnight. So I came back today and tuned up...

    My left leg is not obedient...

However I have recently gotten into using my left leg more creatively and I quickly discovered that after all those...

    Do other musicians understand that drums can break?

    So my friends band just released a video, just a quick simple one, but at the end the singer/guitarist and the bassist jump on the drum kit and knock it over and stuff, I literally cringed at it. It wasn't planned either the guitarist/singer just jumped on it and the bassist followed. Sure it...

    I've lost my balance and gained some as well?

    I was a bit reluctant to make a post about this but its getting bad/good now.
