    Hi, I'm Ben.
    I'm 40, or half of 80, depending on the mood.

    I'm not a drummer, but I am right into my tongue drums, marimba and bongos - and all manner of tuned percussion.
    Guitar and bass are my primary instruments.

    Who is your Favorite Drummer? Stewart Copeland. A close first to Vinnie Colaiuta.

    Are you in a band? Yes.

    Do you see dead people? Not lately.

    How did you find Drum Chat? Through my research for a documentary I am making.

    Hello guy's and girls. Newbie drummer here. But spent 20 years as a Mobile disc jockey. So I consider myself a rhythmic person. Had a drum set at 14.(poked holes in it) Took 3 lessons in the Eighties (5 bucks for a half hour then lol) I have recently bought a 5 piece new set and a bunch of other pieces and have cobbled together a fairly decent kit (I think) ZBT's on my hi-hats. Mienl 20in ride. Zildjian crash and my favorite a Mapex Piccolo snare that pops like no one's business. Taking on-line courses with Drumeo. And am fairly happy with my progress in 3 months time. Working on building independent limbs right now. Frustratingly hard but can see more opportunities to improve. Hope to learn more here. Thanks for reading. Damian

    Hello guys and girls. Newbie drummer here. Got a beautiful Pearl kit at 14. Punched holes in it. Took 2 lessons at 25 yrs old in the eighties (5 bucks for a half hour then lol) then stopped. But I was a mobile DJ for 20 years and have always considered myself a rhythmic person. Recently (at 60 now) bought a 5 piece starter set and another used kit. And have cobbled together a fairly nice kit I think. Upgraded cymbals to ZBT hats, Meinl 20in ride and Paiste crashes. Taking online classes (Drumeo) very clear and accessible. Working on limb independence right now. Frustrating but making progress. Joined here because I'm sure it can only speed up my progress. Thanks for reading. Damian

    Thank you for taking the time to welcome me. There seems to be so much to do, see and learn on the drums. It can be a bit daunting at times. But I try to keep it simple and practice the basic grooves (I think I know about 2 lol) and when and where to add fills and such. For me, the count is important. And I have a 25 minute drive to work. So I take one stick in my off hand (left) and just play singles and doubles on my steering wheel lol. Crazy I guess. But I'm a right handed meatcutter. So that hand has no issues. But my left is another story all together lol. But honestly, I've made great strides in using that hand because of it.

    Hi All. I'm Rich. Hanging on to 49. Been playing since I was 10ish but had to take about 10 years off due to family. But now back in it full swing.
    My current project, Jack FoolerY is doing quite well, despite our ages, we all still seem to get some Rock out.

    Hi everyone! My names Matt. I'm 22 years old and from Victoria, Australia. I used to be on here a fair bit, but in the years since I've forgotten my login details to my old account. Which might be a good thing, since I dont mind being a bit more separated from my posts as a 13-15ish year old, which probably left a bit of maturity to be desired.

    I've been drumming for about 10 years now. At the minute I'm playing a Sonor 3007 series, somewhere between a 4 and 11 piece depending on the day. I also have a PDP X7 7-piece stashed away for rehearsal and gigs, but they're a bit less common these days. I was in a metal band not long ago that did a few gigs around Australia but had to step out of that due to a back injury.

    It's good to see some people still around here that were on years ago when I was.

    Greetings drummer friends!
    I'm a newbie to this forum, and am happy to be here.
    Before being officially granted access herein, I introduced myself, but the text doesn't seem to exist, so I assume this acceptance was necessary prior to attempting a post.
    I am a drummer of many years now, involved in our art in numerous various capacities. This includes set playing, marching, session work, teaching, orchestral, and local theater. Subsequently, I thoroughly enjoy lots of musical genres (recently, listening to my library on random shuffle, a friend remarked, "Dude, seriously? Mozart to Lamb Of God?!"
    I presently play drum set at home, practicing primarily for health reasons. The inherent cardio is always a plus, but I find myself in a disabled state, and my efforts greatly aid in physical coordination. When asked by old friends to jam, I am sadly required to say I am now a drummer with four bad limbs, and a shadow of my former self.
    There are presently three kits that tolerate my daily endeavors, scattered around the house; a clunker beater of mismatched brands, a nicely restored (thank you very much) Gretsch Catalina - toms arranged in a marching quads configuration, and a beloved North Drums beast that I plan on restoring this Summer in a "jelly bean" color scheme. Photos may follow.
    My primary go-to choice of cymbals are Zildjian "A's", but do have others that just plain sound good.
    I look forward to meeting and chatting with you, and again its a pleasure to find this place (go Drum Bum!).
    Peace,
    John

    Same here, igotthchop. I've not been able to participate whatsoever since I registered last year. I can't seem to find where to contact mods for info. Oh well. Great forum anyway. At least I can see everyone else's posts.

    Right on 6 Stroke! It seems at least you and I can see each other.
    Maybe a wizard will find us out here floating in the dark, and let us know the grand secrets to properly enter and engage! :D
    Peace!

    Hi Everyone,

    My name is Sam and I've been playing since age 6 and just turned 58 (yikes) a few weeks ago.

    Played in drum corp from age 9 until 12 (when I realized how cool drum set was) and studied for many years.

    Currently playing in 2 bands - a funk/r&b band and another band that plays originals similar to grateful dead grooves.

    Have 3 kits: 6-piece Yamaha Birch Custom Absolute in dark cherry, Gretsch Renown 6-piece in piano black and Yamaha Power-V 4-piece in black (my crasher kit). Snares: Pearl Free-Float Brass 3.5x14, Yamaha vintage steel 7x14, and Tama SLP G-Maple 7x13. The last one purchased yesterday as a result of some great advice received HERE. Cymbals: 60's Zildjian 22" ride, Zildjian 16" A Custom Crash, zildjian 18" A Custom Crash, Meinl 18" Byzantine Extra Dry Thin Crash, Zildjian A Custom HH, and Zildian New Beat HH. Zildjian 8" and 10" splashes, Paiste 22" ride, 60's 22" Zildjian sizzler, and other misc (mostly zildjians). Gibralter rack on Yamaha kit. Gretsch kit has virgin kick and floor tom. DW 3000 HH, DW 5000 kick pedal, PDP HH, Camco kick pedal, and old Pearl kick pedal. Also, have a 60's Ludwig HH stand that's like new.

    Favorite Drummers: Dave Weckl, Steve Gadd, and Stewart Copeland
