    First drum DVD I've ever watched. I'm mostly self taught with the help of a few drum lessons and help from friend drummers. Itsgonna take a few viewings to take all this in. His rebound and relaxed techniques kind of open my mind. Great little DVD. After a first run through, I definitely want to...

    So, went to the music shop today and decided to pick up a set of 5a maples, normally playing hickory with the only other experience being red hickory. My meridian maples still have the stock pinstripes after a ec2 experimenting gone wrong. I found from the drivers seat that the maple sticks...

    Hey, just wondering if some of you veterans could hook me up with some spots to access some Drumless tracks. I've found some stuff on freedrumlessons.com which was nice because they had an optional click track on it but the stuff seemed kind of cheesy and repetitive. Basically I'm lookin for...

    Shuffle and pocket groove, what are the definitions?

    Before anyone says to search the internet, the Internet sucks nowadays. Takes 30 minutes to find any relevant information. Now watching some videos of Steve Jordan, the titles refer to pocket grooves sometimes. Comments on the video talk about how he always stas in pocket. What does this drummer...

    Getting better after short break periods?

    Just wondering if I'm the only one who seems to think they get better after like a 5 day break. I normally only play when the wife is gone since when I play the whole house is just chaos. I don't blame her, you can't do nothing when the drums are going in the house, it's loud. She's in the...

    Why does my floor Tom sound louder then my bass drum?

    Is this just an illusion from the front seat. I've never really payed attention to the past cour months with my new meridian maples. My old westburies had a closet in the bass so they were naturally quieter. My wife doesn't want to experiment with me and play while I stand out front. Just from...

My music tastes have since changed and I...

    So I was chatting with some drum buddies today. Where I'm from most shops deal Sabian and zildjian. We were chatting about cymbals and anyways, they started referring to intermediate cymbals.

    Help me fix up my meridian maple snare

    So my mapex meridian maple snare had the stock heads on it for about two months they were remo ut. They sounded great except the fact that screwing around with higher tubing and stuff seemed to stretch and ruin it. It wouldn't go back to middle range tuning without out bonkers on overtones from...

    Just found out why cheap drums sound cheap.

    I've been watching this forum for awhile, and was always interested in the drum restoration and building threads. It was something that interested me. I've only owned two kits. My westburies were my first purchase. Having no idea about drums they looked beautiful. After about 2-3 years of...
