    Tympani Heads For Roto Toms

    Hey guys, I bought a used 14” Roto Tom a few months ago, it came with a tympani head. I’ll need to replace it eventually. I can’t get information about these heads none of the online websites carry them. They’re the typical sizes 20” and above. Are they discontinued? What would be a good...

    First Time Experience w/15” Hi Hats.

    I’ve been playing drums a very long time. I bought a pair of Zildjian 15” New Beats from a forum member. They’ve been in my possession for a few hours and I love them! I can’t believe I missed out all these years!

    Cymbals mixed low in modern rock recordings.

    I have been listening to a lot of modern-day Hard Rock and metal on YouTube with my headphones and I noticed the cymbals are so low in the mix I can barely hear them. The close kick, snare, and tom tracks are very loud and present but the cymbals are barely audible. Does anybody else notice...

    Sonor D 506 score!

    I just bought a used in mint condition on Reverb a Sonor 6.5x14 snare drum. It sounds like Bonham’s LM 402 on steroids! This is the best snare I’ve ever played. That Ferro Chrome is something else.

    Harvey Mason Sticks

    Hey guys, I'm thinking about getting the Vic Firth Harvey Mason sticks the dark mahogany colored ones. I play Remo coated Ambassadors. Will these sticks color my heads and cymbals? I tried them on a practice pad a few years ago and loved the feel of them. Thanks.

    Dead Drum Sound Trend

    Every time I watch a drummer famous or not on YouTube. I see them playing a high quality drum kit with moon gels all over the snare and toms. Their kits sound flat like cardboard, why don't they play a Sears kit instead of butchering a beautiful expensive high end kit? Is this a trend?

    Youtube drum cover.

    Here's another drum cover of 30 Seconds To Mars. This is a groove oriented song with very few fills. As I get older, I'm appreciating the groove more. When I finished recording this video, the groove got me so pumped up, I couldn't sleep that night. Funny thing is, when I make Polyrhythm and odd...

    My first Youtube drum cover.

    Here's my first drum cover on Youtube. It's by my favorite band 30 Seconds to Mars. The song is called "From Yesterday". I recorded this on my SONOR SQ2 kit. I used Sony Vegas Platinum 10 video software to sync the audio and video together. I hope you like it.
