    Set up in the park and vibe a little

    We had a rare 70-degree day last week so I set up in a park downtown and played for around 45 minutes. The owner of a local arts publication came out from his office and shot some video. This was the first 'public performance' of my recently acquired vintage Slingerland kit. Imma guessin' you...

    In search of bass drum mounted cymbal arm...

    It appears I have a stock cymbal arm mount on my newly acquired Slingerland bass drum. Were these pretty much universal from brand to brand? What size (diameter?) cymbal arm should I be looking for? Does Gibraltar make a sturdy plug-n-play version?

    Have you ever auditioned for a Branson show?

    Has anyone here assembled a demo reel for auditioning purposes? A friend of mine in Branson, Missouri (working musician) is encouraging me to put together a demo packet and sending it to all the shows/theatres there. After losing my job back in August, the prospects of finding local full-time...

    I landed myself a beautiful '60s Slingy 5 piece...

    Quick back story - These belonged to a fella that I jammed with quite a bit at our local country jamborees. I never saw him play the drums because I knew him as a guitar player. He passed away after a long illness and one day his widow called saying he left behind 4 drum kits and she invited me...

    Order with

    I placed an order with on the April 14th and got a confirmation the next day. Despite their claim to ship heads "2-5 business days" after ordering, I haven't heard a peep from them since. I've emailed them twice in the past 5 days with no response. They've had a message on...

    10 years at

    Feb 14th marks my tenth year at DFO. Now, I did frequent the DCI board back in the early 2000s under the name 'Fat Chance' but my time here at DFO has been a quality experience. I've learned a lot, I've shared a lot. I've bought your stuff... you've bought my stuff. The administrators and...

    Short documentary on the making of Rush’s Snakes & Arrows album

    Great insight into their creative process. Plus, some candid moments caught ‘on tape’. Did you know Neil recorded one of the tracks on a 4 piece?

    How are you mounting multiple splashes?

    I always thought I would like to have 3 splashes mounted generally above my hi hat/high mounted tom area but never bothered figuring out the logistics. I'm guessing there is hardware that accommodates multiple splashes on one stand? How are you mounting multiple splashes?

    Credit Anderson Paak for keeping live drums in the mainstream spotlight

    33 year old Rap/R&B sensation Anderson Paak often performs his songs while playing drums. It's been a while since we've seen a singing drummer prominently featured on network variety/talk shows. I had originally planned on posting his recent performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live but for some stupid...

    Tell me about my new (used) Pearl Masters Custom Snare drum

    Two weeks ago, I bought a Pearl Maple Masters Custom snare from the Ben Folds Studio A sale on Reverb. The drum, my first wood ply snare made by Pearl, is in very good shape. The color was listed as Antique Yellow. It has re-rings and diecast hoops. I don't really have an eye for it but I would...

    Being a drummer in the Country & Western/Western Swing world

    As much as I fancy myself a rock/contemporary drummer. My most regular gig is playing a country dance 2-3 times a month at a city-run rec center. Most of the music is C&W from the '50s-'80s along with some Western Swing in the tradition of Bob Wills and his Texas Playboys. I often share the...

    OT: Help me prep/pack for a nearly two-week vacation

    My wife and I will soon embark on the trip of a lifetime, beginning with a week-long tour through interior Alaska and finishing with a four-day cruise from Glacier Bay to Vancouver. This adventure is so far beyond the scale of any trip we've ever taken before. It is our first ever group...

    Surprised Matt Halpern doesn't get more attention here...

    He has the funky sensibilities of Chad Smith and the ability to groove his way through mind-bending meter changes, in the same fashion as Mike Portnoy. Quite the powerhouse drummer.

    Another fascinating performance by Nate Smith

    Dude has a sense of rhythm that occupies spaces unfamiliar to me. If Nate's drumming was represented by a Venn diagram... the three circles would be Intuition, Mystery & Stank
