    Achieving "Click Grip" or "Click Technique" on the Ride Cymbal

    Hi! I just joined the forum. I am a big fan of Bill Stewart's drumming. I saw him live in Little Rock last month- it was awesome! There is a distinctive "woody"/"clicky" sound when he strikes his cymbals. I've noticed it in some other players as well. I have seen very few mentions of the...

    A video explaing different stick sizes and types.

    I made this for new drummers or people who haven't experimented with sticks. I own almost every shape and size of stick available and there is a lot of people who don't ever change. It makes a huge difference in your playing.

    Stain and clear coat an old beat up kit

    Here is a video I made of the progress on a 1980's Pearl Export kit. It was my first time fixing up a junky kit, the clear coating was a real pain and I'll get better but the outcome was half decent. It was beat up, the wraps were damaged and it was in a near garbage state. (smelt bad, was...

    Forest King Wooden Drumheads

    Just stumbled upon these this morning. I'm intrigued. They're definitely not meant for regular stick playing but I would love to throw one on the reso side of one of my kicks and set up a snare with one for brush playing. Anyone actually play around with any of these yet...

    Bronze shell, "woody tone", ??

    I have been mildly GASsing for a bronze snare lately, in part because I have seen many posts from people saying bronze has the most "woody" tone of all metal shells. Let's leave aside the question of "why not just get a wooden snare" for now. :) Which type of bronze shell would you say has...

    Solid wood snare drum for the studio

    Hey, I hate to post one of these seemingly-lazy threads, but I've done a bit of research and it seems that a lot of the popular snare drums in this category (solid wood, maple), seem to be either vintage or boutique. The problem with vintage is I'm not experienced enough to check for problems...

    Staining TAMA Swingstar

    So I decided to take the wrap off my TAMA Swingstar and to stain it a brown/red color (don't remember the exact name) and I think with the chrome and black bass rim it looks sick! I actually made a video of it with pictures of the process, so take a look, it looks amazing! Link...

    1964 Wood Dynasonic Score

    Just picked up this Red Glass Rogers Dynasonic from sunny Phoenix! Check out the fade on the wrap, which is pretty even, except as it goes to where the heads overlapped, where it is the original red. Even with the CS black dot and unoriginal snare wires on it, it sounds killer! I have had...

    Ever seen one of these before? Not in the catalog Tama Imperialstar Wood Snare

    I looked in the Tama catalogs from the early 80's, and didn't find this snare drum. There are the wood shell Mastercraft and Artwood snares, but I couldn't find a Tama Imperialstar wood shell snare drum, and also the butt plate is different than any others I've found in the catalog. It also...
