    What bearing Edges?

    Hey Guys!! So! A lot has happened recently I actually ended up selling my 6-piece Mapex Meridian kit and trimmings over the past couple weeks due to financial hardship and lack of time/space. However! Someone was looking out for me because I ended up finding a 24x14 Keller Shell in perfect...

    So I'm not a fan of the music but there are things I'd like to take from the drummer. And I am looking for assistance in counting the time in this track. It seems to easily fall into four and some measures if half time ..nothing crazy. Caution, it's loud...

    Drum Heads - Two Parter(Not what you think..)

    No! I do not need advice on which drum head for "X" genre, despite the illusive title. So, I do a lot of art and for some time I've been wanting to add some designs to my drum heads, come up with a theme and apply it to all my heads eventually. Here's where my questions come though: Does...

    How's my Heel-Toe?

    Alright, I've never had an interest in Heel-Toe until Yesterday..and it shows! Up until recently playing singles and doubles heel up has always been enough for my needs, but now I want more! While I'm very slow at it, after a few hours of "even-ing" it out..it feels like I got somewhere. I know...

    Dull, boring..lacking the Swing of Things..

    Alright gents, I've been behind my kit for over a year at this point and I'm finding my creativity and drive to play consistently- to be quite lacking. I try to keep things fresh by playing different styles but I find when I'm not trying to cover something; when I am just jamming out on my...

    A different kind if mic..

    So my wonderful wife purchased a new GoProHD2 camera for my birthday, with the intention of using it for motorsports, however I quickly started thinking about other things I could record with it! The cameras built in Mic is not half bad and it even has a 3.5mm outlet for an external mic ..even...

    For those of you who use Remote Hats..

    What clamp are you currently using? I have a small clamp but I absolutely can't stand it and I am looking for one with a longer arm possibly. I saw the Pearl one that mounts to your bass but I don't think that would be good for my bass hoop nor would it place the HH where I would like them...

    New setup and other goodies :)

    Not sure if I shared this with you all yet, but I was highly interested in getting my rack toms mounted separately. And here it is: I LOVE the new setup! Works much better for me. Having the ride right there in my face, instead of hanging over the floor toms is a huge improvement. And now I...

    How do my hands look?

    And sound!? So, with two tv dinner trays, a camcorder on my phone and a loud tv in the background I have filmed a brief video of mostly single stroke based work. Some diddles, some trips, nothing fancy. I tried to use a variety of techniques, from my everyday German grip, some push-pull, a...

    All this talk of Trip-lets has got me thinking..

    I cannot for the life of my playing 8th note triplets while keeping straight 8ths with my feet. I have been working on this for a solid 3 weeks and I cannot seem to get the swing of things. I thought my coordination was coming along well until I had attempted this. So, should I take a step...

    Need Some Jazzy Help

    So, this past year my drumming is really coming alive. I have no expanded my play-ability too far, or as far as I would like. But the improvement is definitely visible when I get behind the kit. With that said, would anyone mind giving me the snare pattern for this particular piece...

    Alright as some of you might know, I recently acquired my Meridian Kit and I'm looking for some configuration option, but I have some questions: The tom holder that the kit came with, that fits in the top of the bass drum. Its a much large diameter than any of my other stands/equipment. Is this...

    Mmmmmmm Mapex!

    Soooo finally got my camera back and was able to take some quick shots before work this morning. I really do love the Chestnut Burst Finish, I've grown so fond of it in the few days I've owned the kit(unfortunately, with little play) I didn't have a lot of time tonight to tune(that'll come...
