    Bill Burr on drums and Tony Williams

    I knew that one of my favorite comedians, Bill Burr, messed around a little bit on the drums but never knew he was this serious about it. Check out what he has to say about Tony Williams. And practice kits. And mini-kits. And e-kits. Hysterical.

    Pearl lock problem

    I'm having problems getting the tongue on the Pearl memory lock on my tom post to fit into the groove into the bass drum tom receiver mount (BB-3, BB-300). When I put the lock into the bass drum mount by itself, no problem - it fits snug and flush. But when I put it on the 7/8" tom pipe and...

    Peruvian Percussion

    By sheer dumb luck, I ran into a massive parade a last week while in Cusco, Peru. The parade lasted about two hours, during which time I snapped some pix, some of which show the stuff that Peruvian drummers march with. Apparently the most available drums are Lazer, a Taiwanese manufacturer. I...

    What Kit Is This?

    Can anyone tell me what model Roland kit this is? I'm not that familiar with e-kits and I can't seem to be able to see the module clearly enough to read anything on it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Bruford Simmons Clinic

    Caught Bill Bruford doing a Simmons clinic in Tokyo in the early 1980s (83-84 maybe). He opened with The Drum Also Waltzes. The technology was very impressive at the time.

    Happy birthday Lenny White

    In my opinion, Lenny's one of the most underrated drummers around. Great ears, tasteful, funky and powerful, totally committed to the band and a great producer to boot.

    Trilok unleashed

    Trilok Gurtu may be the most inventive percussionist I've ever seen/heard. In terms of out-and-out drumming, his extended solo on Pasha's Love on this live album from the early 90s may be one of the most unbelievable things I've ever heard. If you want to get a taste of what he can really do...

    The Human Factor - Netflix

    Major major recommendation: If you have Netflix, check out THE HUMAN FACTOR. It's about the history of Indian musicians who recorded music for Bollywood films from the late '40s until now. (Think Wrecking Crew with curry.) It mainly focuses on members of the Lord family, apparently a well-known...

    hi-hat pedal recommendations?

    I'm a e-drum newbie and just bought a used Roland TD-1KV but want to replace the hi-hat controller pedal. I looked at the Roland FD-8 and FD-9 but really don't know how to tell the difference in the play-ability or reliability of the two. Can anybody help me with this or suggest another pedal...
