As one of the resident "nutjobs" , I've found a lot of great drumming buddies since I joined DrumChat...and I've learned that no matter what part of the world you come from, drummers share many things in common--including answers to any questions you have on drum sets, cymbals, sticks and, yes, even hand percussion!
To borrow from my usual sig, sign up, start posting in the Forums and/or the Shoutbox, and...
keep the beat goin' ... Don't keep it to yourself!
"If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away." --Henry David Thoreau, "Walden," 1854
"There's a lot to be said for Time Honored tradition and value." --In memory of Frank "fiacovaz" Iacovazzi
"Maybe your drums can be beat, but you can't."--Jack Keck
