    Rush Tribute Project

    Saw the Rush Tribute Project last night in Gaylord, MI. It was great to get out and see some live music! These guys were excellent and did a really nice job of covering Rush. Not an easy task. The down sides were that the venue acoustics were terrible and the PA was pretty average as well...

    Wide Snare Wires - 30-42 strand

    Who likes wide snare wires? Puresound makes a 30 strand. Tama makes a 30 and a 42. Gibralter, Canopus, and a few others make a 42 strand. I love these things and have used them for years. Have them on many of my snares. Interestingly, someone posted about snare buzz. In working in studios...

    Rupert Neve Passes at 94 I don't really consider this OT, while not a drummer, his gear recorded just about all of the top drummers in history, so certainly relevant to the drumming community. He is a legend and knew as much about audio gear...

    Easy Lover - Drum cover

    Had a friend ask about how to play parts of this song. Specifically he was having trouble with the timing of the intro. So I put together this video. Not really a help for him learning it, but it was fun to put together anyway. I didn't spend the time to learn all the runs, they are all easy...

    Best double bass drum pedal at any price?

    I think 2021 might be the year I try a new BD pedal set up. So I'm looking for advice on the best available double pedal set up. I live in a remote area and would have to travel quite a distance to test out pedals, plus I find it hard to test a pedal in a store and really learn much. Things I'm...

    Looking for a new beater, I've always used whatever came with the pedal and have generally used Pearl pedals. But looking for an upgrade. The Trick Pro 1-V beater and the DW control beater look very similar. The DW is about $12 cheaper. Anyone have experience with both of these? Or maybe...

    Yet another Neil thread - Neil's style of playing

    In reading many things about Neil over the past few days, I ran across this article in Rolling Stone. It's maybe the most accurate description of Neil's playing style and approach I've ever read. If I could write, this would be along the lines of how I would describe Neil's style, approach, and...

    This crazy thing we call drumming!

    - Drummers spend hours trying to get perfect spacing and weight between hits. - Meanwhile programmers try to build variation between hits to make computer generated parts more like a real drummer. - Drummers spend hours working to clicks to try to achieve perfect time and timing. - Meanwhile...
