Hello, my name is Brandon. I live in Louisiana. I am 14 and I am a freshman in high school. I have been playing for roughly six months. I enjoy listening to ska and punk (real punk) for the most part, also worship music, and occasionally hardcore music, because the drumming is usually good. I'm not really into the the lyrics though. I also like to skateboard, mess around on the guitar, make websites occasionally and other random stuff. I make good grades (usually all As) and my life isn't too interesting. I have a really awesome girlfriend though, so that makes it more interesting. I have a fully functional family too.

Hey, my name is Alex. I live in Indiana. I am 16 and I am a sophomore. I have been playing for about two years now. I enjoy listening to any type of GENRE except I am not to the likes of Rap of Country. My most influential GENRE of music would be rock. I love Jazz and incorporate a lot of it into my drumming. My favorite drummers are for the most part, Thomas Lang, Mike Portnoy, Matt McDonough, Daney Cary, Buddy Rich, Alan White, Neil Peart, and much more. I love drumming and hope to pursue a career with it. Anyway I love the forums and will continue to post in them for quite some time.

Well, the main reason is UNI. I am going to be studying Audio technology in london. HK is a great place, but not music wise. there are NO independant bands that make money here, the only music industry here is canto pop, and i have never seen ANY of my favourite bands live. From what i have heard (from people that have moved from HK to lodon), london is a great place. If i wasn't into music, then i would probably want to stay here.

I just started Tae-kwondo and going to the gym every week to get in shape for athletics season coming up (came 2nd in county last year for 80m). At the moment i like punk and ska (Taking Back Sunday, Reel Big Fish, Less than Jake, Goldfinger etc.). Favourite drummers are Thomas Lang, Mike Portnoy and Virgil Donati. These forums have helped me loads especially with my knowledge of equipment.

Hey everyone! My name is Jennifer, Im from Minnesota and it seems like Im the oldest here @ 27. I've been drumming for about 7 years. I played keyboards since childhood, but switched over to drums because 1) keys got boring and 2)there aren't many keys in hard rock/metal, which is the music I prefer. Been in a few cover bands...enjoyed them all. Im not currently in a band due to my work schedule, but plan to join one or start one this spring.
Playing gigs is probably my favorite past time. Sex, drugs & rockNroll!! (well... I say no to drugs). My influeneces are Ulrich, Peart and Larkin...Danny Carey too :thumb:

My name is Brian, from upstate New York. I've been playing for about 12 years now, after switching from piano and cello. I did mostly orchestral percussion for a long time, specifically the timpani, and was going to go for symphonic jobs until I started playing the kit. My background is very largely jazz and latin, though I haven't played Latin music in so long I almost can't even remember what a clave is. :lol:
Played in several big bands and, at one time, a salsa band (in which I was the only non-Latino member). I took lessons from the legend, Joe Morello, who completely reinvented my technique and saved me from a lifetime of carpal tunnel syndrome.
After music school, I took a huge turn from classical and jazz and started playing hardcore music. After playing for a couple of local bands, I hooked up with my present band, Drowningman. Just laid down drum tracks for the demo last night, and we're shopping for a label, planning a full-length, and gearing up for tours later in the spring. Last September we toured with Dillinger Escape Plan, and chances are, we'll be doing the same this year.
Major influences include Vinnie Colaiuta, Steve Gadd, Dave Weckl, Akira Jimbo, Terry Bozzio, Greg Bissonette, Tony Williams, Art Blakey, Elvin Jones and Chris Pennie.

Oh, and Travis Barker is the best drummer of all time!!!! :p

I'm in two bands. Dawn of Destruction(I think the name will change, we don't really like it much) as Drazinus and Immortal Khaos as Craeg Khaos(yes, that's a Tool reference). I like hanging out at the mall, movies, w/e. Playing video games like Halo 2 (on XBL my tag is Drazinus, if you wanna play a game of team slayer or something), DDR, Half-Life 2, UT2K4, BF1942, yea, FPS is my favorite genre.

Been playing for about two years, still kinda looking around for a band to play in. I like listening to alot of stuff, punk and ska mainly, but I'm also into hardcore, alternative rock, indie, and some emo. Long Island has a great scence, so I enjoy going to local shows alot. Like Draz I play a good deal of PC FPS and some RTS. Im in love with Adult Swim on Cartoon Network and watch that very often. I also like studying history in school and what not, especially learning more and more about World War II, I may possibly become a history teacher. Well, thats about all right now.

Really?! What was that like?

It was actually a lot of fun. It was my first real tour, so I spent most of it just in awe and practicing on my drum pad backstage (I get stage fright something fierce, so anything to take my mind off of it). We were on tour with Misery Signals, Zao, Every Time I Die, and Dillinger, so there were a lot of cool guys to hang out with.

No. "Irony is a Dead Scene" was just a small collaboration, and actually Greg was already in the band by then. Greg really tears up the tunes they did with Patton, though, so it's all good.

Too chicken to even try it

Something has to change.
Un-deniable dilemma.
Boredom's not a burden
Anyone should bear.

Constant over stimu-lation numbs me
but I would not want
You any other way.

Cause,
It's not enough.
I need more.
Nothing seems to satisfy.
I said,
I don't want it.
I just need it.
To breathe, to feel, to know I'm alive.

Finger deep within the borderline.
Show me that you love me and that we belong together.
Relax, turn around and take my hand.

I can help you change
Tired moments into pleasure.
Say the word and we'll be
Well upon our way.

Blend and balance
Pain and comfort
Deep within you
Till you will not want me any other way.

But,
It's not enough.
I need more.
Nothing seems to satisfy.
I said,
I don't want it.
I just need it.
To breathe, to feel, to know I'm alive.

Knuckle deep inside the borderline.
This may hurt a little but it's something you'll get used to.
Relax. Slip away.

Something kinda sad about
the way that things have come to be.
Desensitized to everything.
What became of subtlety?

How can this mean anything to me
If I really don't feel anything at all?

I'll keep digging till
I feel something.

Elbow deep inside the borderline.
Show me that you love me and that we belong together.
Shoulder deep within the borderline.
Relax. Turn around and take my hand.

Hi. New here. I've only read a few messages so far. Are you ALL kids? Jeez, I was hoping this woulda' been a site with some folks with some knowledge, 'cause I desperately need that.

Callin' you old fogies out there. ;-)
Seriously, any help with anyone would be appreciated, young or old. But I need advanced advice.

I'm 33. I just worked my A$$ off for God knows how long, working one sh!+ job after another. Sometimes holding down two and even three jobs at a time!

But it paid off, because now I got over $12,000 and I'm quittin' my day job. I'm keeping the weekend one though (actually getting enough weekend work to almost make-up for the money I'll be losing), but my weeks are totaly free.

I'm building a recording studio. Oh yeah, as good as done. The most high-tech in all of Arizona. Gonna' get me a new computer and invest heavilly in pro-tools gear. But right now, I'm trying to figure out a few things. Trust me, you guys will hear from me in the future. I need a lot of advice.

For one, I'm trying to figure out how to buid my drum kit. I'm no real drummer, I have to put the high-hat on my right. ;-) But I get by.

I found this sweet Gretsch 5-piece with no cymbols or high-hat for $480. I think it's a safe bet I can get the dealer down to $350 at least, esepcially if I mention that I might be back with my twelve grand and that I just might purchase the Fender Jaguar bass hangin' on the wall...

But I'm wondering a lotta' things. Maybe I should go more into detail when I can post my own thread, but I'm just too anxious to figure some o' this S out.

One BIG thing I'm wondering is what's the deal with snare sizes? Bass drums too, I might imagine. Man, it'd be ideal for me if there was a set standard size. I really need to know what the best size is without investing in tons of crap along the way.

I need a better sound than the crap I always had available to me in the past. I always had a real plastic sound with the kits I played with. I need something full.

Maybe getting a few different size snares might be an idea too, I'm toying with. But I'd realy like to keep my spending for each instrument to a minimum, while keeping the highest standard possible.

Then there is the decision on the best sounding cymbols too. And skins, can't forget skins. I really want high quality everything, as I am trying to create studio perfection. If one thing's off, it's gonna' bug the crap outa' me.

Anyhoo, without going into any further detail about who I am, I'll just appologize for the length of this message and end it now. ;-)

RushHourSoul
02-16-2005, 08:24 PM
Well, every major drum manafacture will have high end ranges of kits. I havn't tried many but others have so i'll let them tell you about them.
For cymbals, the big 3 (Sabian, Zildjian & Paiste) have plenty of professional lines. Its just a matter of taste; You may prefer a dark sounding crash, or a bright ride. Who knows. Best idea is to go and try them out.

Same with heads, although Remo ambassadors and emperors (or Evans G1s and G2s) are good head choices. But its generally all about opinion, as one cymbal/head may sound great to one person's ears, but terrible to someone else's.

Hope that gave a bit of an insight.

But I'm wondering a lotta' things. Maybe I should go more into detail when I can post my own thread, but I'm just too anxious to figure some o' this S out.

One BIG thing I'm wondering is what's the deal with snare sizes? Bass drums too, I might imagine. Man, it'd be ideal for me if there was a set standard size. I really need to know what the best size is without investing in tons of crap along the way.

I need a better sound than the crap I always had available to me in the past. I always had a real plastic sound with the kits I played with. I need something full.

Maybe getting a few different size snares might be an idea too, I'm toying with. But I'd realy like to keep my spending for each instrument to a minimum, while keeping the highest standard possible.

Then there is the decision on the best sounding cymbols too. And skins, can't forget skins. I really want high quality everything, as I am trying to create studio perfection. If one thing's off, it's gonna' bug the crap outa' me.

Anyhoo, without going into any further detail about who I am, I'll just appologize for the length of this message and end it now. ;-)

When you're building a kit for a recording studio, I assume you plan on having bands come in to record, and that this is not just a personal endeavor. That being said, you'll most likely have a variety of acts walk through your door, and the studio kit should be multi-purpose.

I would get a kit with a 16x20 kick, 'cause it's punchy enough for smaller groups, but big enough to give some oomph if you run it through compressors.
As for snares, seems to me like most standard snares are in the 5-6x14 area, so anywhere in there will be fine. If a drummer REALLY wants a super deep snare, chances are he'll bring his own, although some drum shops will let you rent equipment for that sort of thing if it's really a big deal. As for toms, it's always nice to have a wide assortment, but standard sizes work best for multi-purpose recording. Something like 9x10, 10x12, 12x14 and/or 14x16.

I prefer birch for recording.

Geez, now I feel like the old Fogie!!

My name is Rich and I'm from Warren, MI (North of Detroit) and I'm 40 (yikes!)

I played percussion from Junior High partway through college. Played marching band, concert band, pit orchestra, jazz band you name it.... Toured Europe with Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp travelling international concert band and jazz band one summer, that was COOL! So I sold my set off halfway through college (a late 70's Slingerland metallic blue) cuz I was strapped for cash and didn't have time to play them.... Graduate, get a job, get married, have kids etc...... somewhere in the back of my mind I miss playing... not just the drum set but all percussion! Last year I joined the Warren Concert Band, a local community band that's been around for about 35 years now, god it feels good to play again, with a serious group!

Now my oldest son plays percussion too, in the middle school. He's pretty good if I do say so myself! About 2 months ago he gets "invited" to join the jazz band (and yes, it's by invite only) and his instructer calls me one day to say he's doing pretty good but will really needs a set at home to practice with (see the wheels turning :lol: ), turns out all the other drummers in jazz band are 8th graders and will be graduating this year, there are no 7th graders and he's the only 6th grader invited to join so far, odds are somewhat good he may be the ONLY drummer next year in jazz band. So, the wheels are turning, his birthday is tomorrow and he will be surprised with a Pearl Export set (Dark wine/black hardware) and Meinl CMS cymbals, god I can't wait to set it up and surprise him, and then sit down and start showing him some moves....... :D :D :D :D :D

This is a great forum!!

I spend most of my time working, classing, reading, vegetating, and of course playing the drums. I'm also trying to learn a little guitar. Oh, also I'll be graduating in a semester and have no idea what to do with my life, haha. Let's see, what else... I like sushi, any kind of lesser known horror and sci-fi movies (and interesting hollywood stuff like Lost In Translation), and I like pretty much any kind of rock / jazz / non-rap music I've ever heard, but earlier indie-emo type stuff in the vein of Sunny Day Real Estate in particular.

I just bought a vintage 1964 Ludwig Super Classic today for $575 and I've spent the past 3 hours cleaning the 40 years worth of gunk all over it when I should be doing some homework.:) Here's a pic of my new baby (the treadmill and the weight machine in the back kinda ruin it, I know)

In terms of what type of music I like, I love underground, retro garage type stuff like the Reigning Sound and kickass 60s garage bands. I absolutely adore Charlie Watts. I like the old school style of drumming; for me personally, the simpler, the better. Which is why I love Charlie and why I love vintage kits. :cool:

Also, to whoever said Day of the Dead rocked, although it's my least favorite of the three movies I agree it's very underrated. Everybody bashes it but I think it had by far the best effects and visceral feeling to it, which is pretty important in a zombie movie. And you can't beat the opening city scene... always sends a shiver up my spine.

I had the greatest job ever.

During October I was helping this one political group that paid us through 'stipends' (or whatever the term is when you get paid for volunteering so its tax-free). We got paid $40 a day while we worked.

We were supposed to put up signs saying "Vote Early" and stuff like that (as Oregon uses a mail-in voting system). Me and my friend spent a week getting names of people to call up and ask to help us (and we got paid for this, during school!). Then we got people, and for the next week we weren't given any assignments, but still got paid!

So literally I made almost $300 for just driving to the headquarters two or three times, waiting around at my school for the guy to show up to pay us, and to ask around at school for people who want to help :D It was so frickenly easy.

That's how I got my Sabian 18" AA Crash :lol:

So i do what i love, and get paid $10 an hour for it.


Oh would you look at that.

sounds cool. I don't bike as much as I used to, I used to ride all the time but mine broke and I never got a new one haha
Full time?

I'll be applying at both Argosy Casino and Musicians Friend soon though (MF first of course), both starting at about $10.50

Whats up all?

This stronghold is actually pretty weak compared to the ones in guitar and Rock and Metal...but i guess it just needs to catch on

I have a job at a local golf place, not a course, but they got miniputt, chipnputt, a range, and batting cages. I basically get paid for watching tv and telling people to have a good time, but im unemployed over winter, so im more then broke right now.

What's up guys. My name is Darren, I'm new to this board and I'm glad I found it. I'm from Canada, and drumming is a serious passion for me. I've been playing for approx. 16 years. Other than drumming, my other 2 passions would have to be weightlifting and GOLF!!!! I can see that I'm going to meet a lot of interesting people here, and learn a lot on the way. As for gear, I play Taye (studio maple), Paiste (all the way baby), remo and pro-mark. Major influences are Danny Carey, Dennis Chambers, Dave Weckyl, Tim Alexander and lately I've really been getting into Will Kennedy. Cheers.

Excellent job. Any job whre you don't have anything to do besides talk to random people and watch tv is good.

The best part is
a)i get everything for free, anytime
b)i can literally do anything i want al day, like the driving range or batting cages (free), and nobody cares

$6 and hour isnt much, but its like im getting paid for having a good day

Sure do, i've been playing since I was a kid.

When it gets warmer out i'll be on the courses for sure.

I will too. My 'rich' uncle bought me the highest line clubs when i went to vegas with him. I posted them in the Golf Gathering in the Sports forum. I cant wait to use em...not to mention they BACKORDERED, so i got two sets!

Ive only been playin for 2 1/2 years (on real courses), but my last score last season was in the low 90s, with low end crap, so im hoping to get below 85 a few times this year, and sell my other clubs for drum/guitar equipment

Man thats great, having nice clubs really helps.

Yeah, we have a ton of new 9th graders tryin for the team this year...i cant wait to annilate them. Last year, i was put on jv, but moved up to varsity halfway through the year. What do you shoot jim, or whats your handicap? Sometimes all that muscle helps, but too much can get in the way.

On a different note...i dont post here much, but i was thinking of have a temporary thread to reduce all them "whats some good songs i can practice to" threads. If people respond, I could organize all the suggested songs by catagory, skill level, and band name (a-z in each catagory), but Im still debating over the idea, or if its even been done before. When its done, it could be stickied in the Beginner forum so the question stops reoccuring. Does anybody else think this is a good idea, or should i pass it up?

it sounds like a good idea to me. it gets annoying when people keep posting the same types of threads and although stickies are kind of a pain, it would be better then having a bunch of those threads. unless the noobs wised up and started posting those3 kinda threads in the beginer section

I think we also need to make a thread called "Lars/Joey/Travis are the greatest drummers ever!" Anyone who posts in there will be automatically banned. It will be like a rat trap.

I'l do that. Although, wouldn't that mean that the threadstarter would be banned too?

Nah, we could make an exception for our "mole" on the inside. I'm pretty sure something like this would need mod approval though.

Distant Echoes
02-28-2005, 01:59 PM
That sound like a good idea too :lol:

But if i did my idea, id need somebody here to help me, that listens to modern rock (im into classic rock), so all the catagories are organized and such, and id probably want Jims approval first...

Does anybody here know how the NP deal works...we usually use it in the rock/metal community thread when the conversation gets dull, or whenever we like. Just at the bottom of whatever you post, put what your playing, just for the heck of it. Hell, sometimes it makes a good conversation and keeps the thread alive.

Na to be honest im not into those types of singular threads, it's easier for me to answer and handel peoples questions with individual threads. The answers get taken care of fast and prompt without having to surf through 10-20 pages.

I used to have dedicated threads stuck at the top here for media,gear and everything else. It was ok for awhile but alot of people missed pictures and gear help by doing that.

Alright, well it was worth a try. Im cool with that.

Right now its snowing like a mofo here. I was gonna record some drum samples on my friends ****ty set which i tuned up for him, but i didnt feel like setting up his stuff, so i just ripped some 5 minute solo out before leaving. It was really the only chance i had to play today, so im not really satifsied

And for my birthday, should I ask for mics and a mixer, drum cases, or another tom?

I'd hit them up for some drum cases, you'll be happy you can keep those DW's in a safe place when you're gigging.
