    Drum History Podcast

    Anyone else a fan of this podcast? While there are a few episodes that I skip since the topic really doesn't interest me, I find it fascinating. I'm just hoping they do a Paiste episode down the road. One of the things that it helps put into perspective is how small percussion companies really...

    Pedals and hi-hat stands

    Is it me or does it seem that like 90% of drummers especially pro ones are using either DW, Pearl or Tama pedals and hi-hat stands, regardless of what kind of drums they're playing. I see a lot of players who endorse Sonor, Mapex, Ludwig, even Yamaha, and others that make their own pedals but no...

    Big & Tall thrones

    I used to use a Roc n Soc throne and upgraded to a Pearl D3500BR throne which is nice but I'd like something bigger and with a cloth seat. Anyone have any recommendations for a big throne with a cloth seat and backrest? I remember that Tama used to make the Sumo throne but it appears to be...

    Non-standard tom sizes/setups

    So, when I designed my Masterworks kit, I went with 8, 10, 13, 15, and 18" toms with with 8 & 10 up top, 13 & 15 as floors, and the 18 as a gong drum. I'm a big fan of wide intervals between toms so each tom is distinctive. I see a lot of drummers, especially metal drummers who will play like...

    What happened to Vic's Drum Shop?

    I was able to go there once and basically had a stiffy the entire time; bought a GMS snare and Paiste cymbal bag. They had every Paiste cymbal that they made, it was an awesome place but they're now gone. :( Anyone know what happened? Why did Vic leave before they closed? Was it too ambitious...

    What is going on with GMS Drums?

    Does anyone know what is going on with GMS Drums? Me growing up in and getting into drums in the 90's, they along with DW were THE custom, boutique drum maker and it seemed like a ton of players were playing them. They had distribution with Paiste, seemed like a lot of shops carried them and...

    Ahead Drumsticks?

    What's the verdict on these? Are they easy to adapt to, as durable as the marketing hype, and so on? Are they easier on the wrists for folks with carpal tunnel? I think I had a pair like 20 something years ago and couldn't figure out how to change the sleeves and tips on them (pre-Youtube) and...

    Danny Carey electronics setup

    Does anyone know the nitty gritty details of how Danny Carey has his electronics set up? I know from the latest Modern Drummer that he has his Mandala pads and Kat pedals triggering samples from Battery on a Macbook but does anyone know how those are physically connected to the laptop? I...

    Custom drumsticks?

    Has anyone ever come across a company that will make a custom drumstick for us regular folk based on a custom design? I'm not talking about someone who take a stock 2B stick and will print your name or band logo on them. I would like to get something like a thicker version of Mike Mangini's...

    How to relearn rudiments and basics?

    This is embarrasing to admit but my rudiments outside of a double-stroke roll are gone. Can't do a paradiddle (and never could do a decent one) and so on. My dad made me do drum lessons and made sure I stuck with it before he would buy me my first kit when I was 13. Well, he bought my kit and...
