    drummers who can't read music notation

    I played by ear for 3 years prior to meeting my teacher Eric. One of the first things Eric did was explain the importance of learning to read…it would help my development and make me a more well rounded player/musician. As he’d predicted over the course of 6 months working with him my playing...

    Cymbals keep getting bigger

    My preference is for clean, crisp 14” Paiste hats, though I also own a pair of 12”…still haven’t been tempted to buy 15” hats which I think would be my max size for hats. Since around 1992 I won’t crash anything less than an 18” and my rides are 20” and 22”…I only own one crash cymbal you’d...

    Zildjian is "Bringing Back" something on April 9, 2024

    Cheers for the demo mate…I thought the crash cymbals sounded great…I preferred the 22” ride to the Megabell and holy smoke I even thought the hats were nice and crisp! As a diehard Paiste guy when it comes to hats and rides, I would actually check these out!:oops:(y):)

    15" Hats?

    My report from the Las Vegas Drum Show 2024

    What a cool write up @striker ! I remember going to [I think] the very first UK drum show, held in a barn of all places…these things tend to grow. I feel like I was there with you! Hope you enjoyed your day…:)(y)
