    "How To" Drum Video

    I'm not really into the "drum cover" thing, however I have decided to start making drum videos. These will be a series of "How To" videos, demonstrating how to play songs from original artists that I have either recorded or toured with. The first is "FREAK SHOW" by the U.K. based industrial...

    Drumheads Podcast 001 - Jon “Bermuda” Schwartz

    Believe it or not I cut 45 min out of it!! I'm going to release a "Bermuda Bonus Round" down the link with the extra content. I think we chatted for about 30 min before I even hit record, and maybe another 30 after I stopped recording, lol! The next episode is with Andy Selway of KMFDM and is...

    Two toms mounted on bass drum

    I got away from mounted Toms on the kick in the early 2000’s, however by 2011/2012 I went back to it. It was when I got a late 80’s set of Recording Customs. That was the first kit I owned in over 10 years that had a mount on the kick. It was just simpler and easier. After that I moved back to...

    WNY drummers - Buffalo Drum Outlet is closing

    This one hurts! I bought my first kit from Paul when I was a kid, and have been a life-long customer and friend. Paul, myself, and a few other guys used to go out for Monday night football and wings, and even after I moved out of WNY I would still go and visit him anytime I was in town. In fact...

    Anyone does recording and music production at home? (Bedroom studio)

    I use my MacBook Air for recording and it does just fine. I run Logic Pro X, and have been doing recording sessions remotely for the last 4+ months without issue. Honestly I don't know the specs of my MacBook. I just know it works, lol.

    video streaming vs audio

    I've been teaching online lessons for a few years, but due to the pandemic had to switch ALL of my lessons to online for the last couple months. I've found Zoom to work best with the clearest audio/video sync. I'm running my kit miced up with the Yamaha EAD10, and running that though an...

    Where can I get Regal 8A Maple

    As mentioned before, prior to the Covid crap they were retooling machinery. Then the Gov. in NY shut them down for the Pandemic. That's the last I spoke with them. Now that things are opening back up I'm going to be reaching out again soon, as I'm starting to run low on sticks. Will keep you all...

    Yamaha's New Portable Drum Kit: Stage Custom Hip

    I checked these out over the weekend. I dig'em, and see where they would really come in handy. I think the part I liked best is that the Floor Tom is also a 2nd snare. Not sure where I would get much use out of that, having to sacrifice having that extra tom for a song, or at least parts of a...

    Gig etiquette: When do you "force" the other drummer off the stage?

    As stated before, I tend to be blunt, but polite. If I see a drummer unscrewing his cymbals I'll just right up there and ask if he/she would like help. Kind of a "hint hint" and if they don't get it, then I'll be a little more blunt. "I hate to rush you, but..."
