New to the Forum

Hi to everyone on the Drummerworld Forum. I had problems finding out quite how to do the inroduce yourself bit so ive resorted to a posting instead..lol...Not too clever with the Laptop im afraid, im sure someone will soon tell me how simple it all is tho...lol..
Im married and live in a small village in Cambridgeshire in the UK..Ive played drums for around 44 yrs at most levels up to and including semi-pro.although these days ive cut right back and play less seriously and more low key...

Over the years ive used many kits from Premier, Yamaha and Pearl and cymbals by Paiste, Sabian and Zildjian...

I hope through this forum to meet some new drumming friends and hopefully be able to share some info and experience with you all...

Well, hello all you wonderful people.

I'm 17. The name's Jacob.

I've been drumming for about 3 years now (yeah, I know, noob)

My user name comes from a word I used to describe a porcupine in second grade.

Top 5 Drummers: Bonham, Dave Grohl (that guy is legit), Ronnie Vannucci (one of the more underrated drummers today imho), Jimmy Chamberlin (Smashing Pumpkins), Travis Barker (blink-182 is really fun to play lol)

I've got a Mapex Voyager kit in Cherry Red (great kit for the price).
Sabian FTW!

My band is called The Flying Surgeons. We have issues. We play an inconceivable mix of garage rock and softer stuff (think white stripes meets John Mayer)

I listen to Green Day, Smashing Pumpkins, Nirvana, The Killers, Muse, Radiohead, The Strokes, etc. I also like heavy country christmas folk rap.

I'm proud to be an American, where at least I know I'm free.

I started drumming because you get a nice little round hole in the drywall when you throw a drumstick at it.

Teehee.

A little newbie forum Montreal...

Hi everybody,
First I'm sorry for my (sometimes^^) bad english, and may you will see many errors cause I just returned forum an intense drumcamp and I'm so tired... ;)

So, i'm Jasbat, a young drummer of 15 years old. I was starting to play drums 4 years ago, when my dad gimme a nice TD-9 with a seat and a cool DW 4000 bass drum pedal at the age of 11.

But I had the rythm feeling before that...
Then I get some snare drums, sticks and brushes, hardware etc... but I don't have any complete acoustic drumset by now.
I already have :

- Roland TD-9 (not upgraded and I don't already planned something about it^^)

- PDP natural wood hoops (SX series) in maple, 14x6

- Sick Gretsch catalina elite Piccolo in maple, 13x4

- Brushe's favorite snare... a 50's no-name one in metal, probably steel... :D

- Zildjian 70's Avedis, 21'' ride and 13'' hats... LOVE...

- Yamaha cymbal and hats stands, Gibraltar snare stand, DW 4000 pedal


Hopefully, I practice on acoustic drums with my personnal teacher and I can carry an hi-hat, a snare and a bass-drum pedal with in a case...
And I transform the case into a bass drum to play on the street! :D

My favorites drummer are :
- Jeff Porcaro
- Aaron Spears (and his SOOOO sick signature sticks!!! <3)
- Bernard Purdie
- Mitch Mitchell
- Papa jo Jones

... and many, many more^^...

My drumcamp's teacher just get endorsed by Pearl for free material and he will give free pass for the Montreal's Drumfest for each of is students! *Edit : Profanity go out of the way, sorry...*

So...

Jasbat

Just because nobody reads them doesn't mean that they're not there!

No problem. I'm not a moderator but they tend to take a very strict view on it.

I hope you enjoy your time here, you clearly have a lot of enthusiasm and that can only be a good thing!

i'm new here

hi y'all. my name is robyn, and i love music. i'm not a very good musician but i do try and enjoy giving it my best shot. i've mostly played guitar but arthritis is starting to set in pretty good and am cramping up after just a cuple of songs (this really bites the big one too) so have been hitting the skins a lit'l more, doesn't seem to hurt as much. i grew up in a family of musicians so been around music all my life and am the only one in my family that is tone death, seriously. i play what is taught to me. i always wanted to be included in the bands my family were in so they taught me how to run the boards and mixers and all that good stuff so i went from being their number 1 roady and fan to their sound and lighting tech. anyway...getting to the drumming part of this thread...i got this drum kit that was my aunts kit. i've had it for 3 or 4 yrs now but never paid much attention to it coz i had another kit already set up that we liked playing. anyway i set it up for my grandson to start practicing with. it needs some replacements done on it and want to do so with as original i can get. anyway got some photos of it and would like to share them. looked on ebay for some of the replacements and was surprized with the prices, is it really gonna cost that much to fix this kit up and would it make this kit worth it? thanks and hope to hang around here and visit at times, i love music talk, am usually the quiet one who sits back and listens so see ya around 072012_1728[00].jpg

Re: i'm new here

Welcome to the Forum! Those drums are Camco's (the precursor to Drum Workshop), and I consider them classics and would bring them back up to snuff just because. In fact, I love the old Camcos more than the new DW's, but that's another story.

It might cost some, but you got a classic kit with a classic finish that's pretty rare. If you don't want to spend money on them, don't get rid of them and keep them in the family until someone wants to take care of them!

Welcome to the forum! Don't worry, we aren't all here to make a career out of drumming, I'm just a hobbyist myself. We are glad to have all levels of musicians here. Look forward to seeing you around.

Here's a Camco 20, 12, 14 http://www.ebay.com/itm/Camco-Oaklawn-Jazz-Drum-Kit-Early-60s-/271020219138?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3f1a105b02#ht_500wt_1202 on eBay. Guy wants $1600. Watch it, see if he gets it. Maybe it'll help you decide what to do.​
Most important items to get, are the lugs to complete the rack tom. You can fudge with generic triple flange hoops, to get the kit up-and-running. And you can use non-Camco tension rods, etc., to cut cost. No one says you have to do a restore job all at once. Make the kit playable, then work on the originality part of it. This is the finish I'd want http://www.ebay.com/itm/Camco-Chanute-Drums-Original-Natural-Finish-12-14-20-Excellent-Condition-/320949819215?pt=Vintgae_Drums_Percussion&hash=item4aba19974f#ht_143 and it's only 3 grand.​
