    I started taking lessons when I was 7 and played in a wedding band with my dad and his friends when I was 14. 15 years ago, I sold my drums to buy a piano for my two kids. My daughter put herself through college by teaching piano. My son still plays as well.

    A few weeks ago my wife and kids told me that they appreciated my investment and bought me a set of drums.

    I am now getting back into the swing of things after 15 years without playing.
    Welcome to Drum Chat Dave, and what a great story of a loving family! Thanks for sharing that.

    To all who have included an introduction here, it is appreciated. For long time Chatters, it is nice to have a reminder of who we are (yes, I'm older and need reminders!). For our newer Chatters, it's very nice to get to know you better.

    Hey there guys!

    My name is John

    I'm 20, goin on 21

    I play Roland TD-4s Drums (acoustic arent ideal for me at the moment) with Gibralter Intruder Strap drive double bass pedals


    My favorite drummer...hmm...Gotta say its Lars Ulrich, because of his intensity on record and live

    Im not in a band yet, I'd love to be in one, once I can safely play an acoustic.

    I dont see dead people, not sure I'd want to though.

    I found this site when looking for advice on what double pedals to buy. Somewhere I found this site lol


    I never really got the opportunity growing up to play drums, though I would always air drum in the car when I was young. When I got deployed to afghanistan I worked with some aircraft (cant go into it) and in our hanger we had a little electric kit. I played that thing every day, for the few months (luckily) I was deployed. I played a lot of Metallica, and would jam out with one of the civilians I worked with. He'd be on guitar and me on drums. Havent had a single lesson. Maybe I should.

    Anyway, I'm going to make a thread in the video section for my covers and such. Do check em out =D

    Here Goes..
    My name is Ryan and I am 25 year old male. I live in Broamdeadows, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. Im married with a daughter on the way.
    I play a early 90's 5 piece Premier XPK 75th Anniversary kit with an array of TRX, Zildjian, sabian, ufip and Paiste cymbals. I also use a 16" mapex floor tom. I have a huge amount of influences ,but my biggest would be Carter Beauford.
    Due to work commitments (bus driver) i cant be in a band as i do alot of hours and shifts vary every day! I work alot of weekends aswell.
    In my line of work i see alot of brain dead people....wait...that wasnt the question. I can say i have seen a dead person as i see quite a few accidents on the roads.
    I found drumchat by accident. It was worth it, seeing how much every loves their drums makes me feel a little less weird...
    Phew...glad to get that off my chest!!
    Cheers
