    Everyone loves FREE... like this free drum forum. But like your car and even your drums, they require upkeep and maintenance and that requires money.

    Will you consider Shopping at Drum Bum to help support this forum?

    Or make a donation here.



    I know from working with Drum Bum through the years, that this forum is costly to run. It requires server fees, hosting, ongoing moderation, advertising, software upgrades, security certificates and IT work when it breaks. All in addition to the expenses that come from running a business. These costs are offset (hopefully) by members that click through to Drum Bum to make a purchase now and then, if not make a contribution to help keep it running.

    On behalf of Drum Bum, thank you for your consideration.

    Of the two videos, I thought the Pearls sounded better than the DW's.

    His speed and chops are insane. Extremely versatile too. His skills are limitless it seems. Plus his kit(s) always sound really damn good

    These clinics were insane.



    They only did a few of them, but seeing Dave and Tony play off each other was wild. They did one for DW Factory Days and a few for Guitar Center, but I think that was it.
