I play drums in 3 bands atm. and i play rock/ metal mostly. IV got a 6 piece premier kit with paiste symbols and 15 inch hi hats... a 16inch power crash a 20 inch dixie and a 20 inch power ride (which makes one hell of a sound!) Recently i bought a pearl double bass pedal for £200 and splash and an 18 inch crash (sabien pro sonics) sticks.... usually 5A but im trying out some carbon sticks and i havnt brokn them yet! influences... gotta b joey jordison from slipknot... an amazing drummer. I aspire to be able to play at that level one day.

Default Drum

Hey Everyone.

I love seeing so many drummers in one place. Bonzo is by far the greatest drummer to grace this earth. As for newer drummers, please check out Derek from FFTL. He's pretty mental. Normally I hate people that use double bass pedals. It's cheating. You can do just as much on a single pedal as a double. At least a single takes some skill. I do want a double bass pedal just for kicks (note the hilariously unfunny pun). It's fun to mess around on sometimes. Right now I'm on a 2001 six piece Premier kit in a beautiful Mahogany finish. Two offset mounted toms, two floors, snare, kick. I'm using an amazing Tama pedal right now. I only use Sabian cymbals. I have I believe, 7 cymbals on my set right now:
-12" Crash
-16" Crash
-14" Crash
-10" Splash
-20" Ride
-16" China
-and a massive 25" Ride from my old Cronet set from when I was like, seven or eight.

I've been drumming since I was four. I am now 17. I am currently in two bands: A Red Light Love Affair (Screamo-core), and Studslonigan (80s Metal/Rock). I also have two solo bands going. One is Topenga, where I play all the instruments in a normal band. Guitar, Bass, Drums, Keyboards, Vocals, etc. I have an EP out now (Pedal K). I also have a purely acoustic solo thing going under the title Comforting Carly. Just me and my acoustic. I'm actually recording in my dad's studio tomorrow. I'm hoping to get a couple tracks down and set up a purevolume site. For now, keep rocking, and check out:

Well, I guess, I'm the eclectic one of the bunch. I play a djembe (African hand drum, for those of you not in the know); Remo synthetic head, but wow, is it still awesome.

BreakOut, that's way cool, I'm in an African Drumming group, I play djembe too. We compose our own stuff, atm we're working on an agbadze for a ternary form thing. I'm the "master drummer", so I've gotta improvize a call and response section too!
Is that the kind of thing you do at all?

Well, most of what I do is pretty much improvised. I'm the percussion section for a local band I belong to, so I haven't had much of a chance to learn the traditional things. I wish I could find a teacher close by, because listening to tapes is not that useful at all. A friend of mine and I, though, did end up doing a long duet for part of our performance one night, though.
