    Who else could sit at drums for Snarky Puppy or Mahavishnu Orchestra?

    I posted this thread in a Facebook drum group so I wanted to pose this question here on a drum forum. The premise is that the replacement drummers could be from any time period and any genre. Drummers were posting suggestions and sometimes proof by way of videos of what drummers could take the...

    Share your “snom” details...

    “Snom” drums have been rapidly becoming more popular. What heads are you running? What are you using for dampening, if any? What are you using as a snom? How is it tuned? How is it mounted and positioned? I had a Tama Starclassic B/B 14x12 that I was going to convert into a snom or cut down...

Had to return that kit. Then I bought a Sonor Sonic Plus II kit for $399 but when that kit came in today, all the...

    Drum Solo Appreciation Thread

    I've been working from home and watching some drum vids on youtube to pass the time. I've enjoyed some great drum solos so I figured, why not start a thread of solos we can enjoy while quarantined? I'm not sure if this has been done, but didn't see it. My first for your consideration is this...

    Old school Yamaha was on another level!

    So my good drum favor has continued lol... a few months back, I stumbled upon a little studio room in the church where I play and I saw this old school Yamaha 7000 kit in there just collecting dust.

    Calfskin/Rawhide Drum Heads... anyone use them?

    I’ve heard of them but never tried them. Came across this video and liked the sound on the snare. I’m sure they cost more but are they durable? How comparable is the life of these heads vs regular Mylar heads? What are the thoughts on this?

    I am on the verge of getting a new 6x14 DW Collectors Top Edge in Black Silk Onyx finish with a 10 ply VLT shell. Does anyone on the forum have one, or have any experience with them.
