    I'm looking for my first drum set...

    I'm looking to get into drumming and I'm trying to get a kit that will last a while but isn't too expensive. I've seen a Tama Rockstar 5 piece set without cymbols, has a bass drum, snare, 2 rack toms and floor toms for 150$. I've seen a Tama Swingstar 4 piece set without cymbols or a snare, has...

    Beginner implied metric modulation

    And another quick one for beginner implied metric modulation. It's a beginner lesson, but an intermediate - advanced topic. I love working on this stuff as it's challenging and also a great way to work on subdivisions. It's also a great way throw your water off your band and throw them for a...

    Hello :) As an absolute beginner, I'm looking to buy an Electronic Drum Set. The most important attributes I'm looking for are quality, durability, and most importantly - compact size (as I don't have too much room).

    Buying Alesis Drums (Old model of DM10 Mesh or new FORGE/COMMAND)

    Before I start asking I'll tell a part of the background story: I'm a complete newb at drumming. I currently play a Cajon (I know it's percussion, but I guess I did a good enough job with an eq to make it sound more like drums) in a band and found out that It's time for me to move on to drums...

    A Dynamics Exercise - because dynamics can make or break a song!

    I've just added an article on improving dynamic control (between limbs, and across an entire song). When I was first starting out, this really simple exercise helped me immensely to get more independence and better volume control between my arms and legs. The TL;DR version is this: Hit 4 things...

    Best electric pad kit for a beginner?

    Ayooo! I'm a soon-to-be drummer, who is hoping to buy their first "kit". Except for the fact that, I won't be buying an actual kit, as I'll be purchasing an electronic pad set, as a ) I don't have the space for an actual kit, b ) I'm a student who lives between two places. I was just...

    Beginning Drummer Here

    Which Roland of Yamaha set would you recommend for a rookie?

    Hello all, so I've been playing guitar for the past 20 years or so and I've decided it's time for me to pick up a new instrument. I've always thought drums looks like a ton of fun, so I'm looking at (probably) one of the Roland TD models - but nothing from their flagship line. I want to keep it...

    starter kit

    Hey guys, So I'm new to this website and I wanted to know what would be a good starter kit. I started off in november with a yamaha dtx430, just as a very beginner kit, and the plus to it is I can play at any time of the day. The problem is, I prefer to play on a real kit, but I also don't want...
