    The orphanage - drums to complete your set

    Howdy! I am looking for a Tama Imperialstar 10" tom ( IMT10A ) in Vintage Red. My kit is from 2010-2013. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    So who are you guys behind the screen name?

    I am a drumming noob and a nobody. But I've been a nobody longer than I have been drumming so I'm really good at it!

    Your latest cymbal purchase.....

    I am thrilled with them. The only thing I have to compare them to are the entry-level Meinls but, to my ears, they sound beautiful.

    Your latest cymbal purchase.....

    Hooray! I get to post now! In mid-March, I got a fantastic deal on a Tama Imperialstar set. My ONLY gripe was the Meinl HCS cymbals that come with that particular line. So after careful deliberation, I decided to pull the trigger on a set of Paiste PST7s. 2002s would have been fabulous, but my...

    A list of all drum shops in the US. How many have you been to?

    I live in Port Saint Lucie. I will make it a point to check out "DrummersOnly" this weekend.

    Bassist Branching Out to Drums

    Great! More "arrows for the quiver". Being a rank noobie, I was thinking that it is "too early to even be considering Jazz", but I have, as a listener, (very recently) been developing a keen interest in it. As well, I am in the process of breaking my bad bass habits, so that's no fooling about...

    Bassist Branching Out to Drums

    Currently, I am dedicating 15 - 30 minutes a day to practicing exercises in Alfred's Beginner's Drum Set Method and Stick Control for the Snare Drum. Additionally, I have found a few YouTube channels that were recommended to me such as Stephen Taylor, Rob Brown, and Drumeo. At some point...

    Bassist Branching Out to Drums

    To my way of thinking: Keeping good time, developing "limb independence" (I'm sure there is a better, more correct term), the mechanics of good stick control. Cultivating a "feel" for the music rather than just being mechanical in my playing. Insofar as the influential players I mentioned...

    Bassist Branching Out to Drums

    Not trying to be a wiseguy but, I guess the basics. In terms of drumming, Barrie Barlowe and Clive Bunker were the first drummers I actually paid attention to in terms of trying to pay attention to what they were doing within the framework of the music. Now, I realize that I am lightyears away...

    What On-Line guitar and/or bass lesson site are you using?

    I am signed up with Fender Play. I should be using it more. :(

    If I may? Go ahead and get a Squier beginner package like this one: https://www.amazon.com/Fender-Affinity-Precision-Beginner-Fingerboard/dp/B07G4Y3B79/ Get a set-up done and throw flats on it. Squier is NOT the brand that it was even 10 years ago. I was amazed at the quality of this...

    Thank you! It is great to know that I am not the only one! On a completely related note: I have been eyeballing the G2655 very hard. How do you like it?

    Bassist Branching Out to Drums

    Good Morning Drumforum! Last year in August, after more than 11 years absent from the world of music, I decided to get back into playing. It was my sole intent to buy a Squier bass pack and be done with it. No GAS, no extras, etc. This, of course, did not happen. But; what was NOT on my...
