    What's your latest purchase?

    Got another pair of Vic Firth Charlie Watts sticks and a Big Fat Snare Drum donut. I love the sticks (one of my favorite types of sticks) and the BFSD is a cool effect.

    Minivan for drummers/parents?

    I have a sienna and it rules for carrying tons of equipment

    Latest Purchase...Non-percussion

    I’ve been paring down my guitar’s pedal board but found the thing I’d been missing. It’s a Boss ML-2 Metal Core distortion pedal. I don’t really play metal core on it. It’s just a heavy as balls distortion and it has a whole different feel than my Plumes OD into Ram’s Head Fuzz. I owned one...

    Oh, it’s just the rod that would hold up the other tom if I was doing a two up one down arrangement. But since I don’t, it just kind of sits there doing nothing

    Movin’ on up!

    Thank you. Yes drumming in the heat is garbage. But I was in the marching band and was a shopping cart herder in Phoenix, so while I hate it, it’s sadly not out of the realm of what I’m willing to do.

    I used to have a TAMA Rockstar that served me well, but this is a mid-90s Starclassic Performer. Also, I’m pretty sure 2001 was like six years ago

    Movin’ on up!

    In case you’re wondering why we didn’t store the furniture in the garage and the drums in the office, it’s because it is her sister’s furniture and she kept saying her sister was coming to pick it up, but kept not picking it up, and I’m a colossal dumbass and didn’t force the issue and just...

    Movin’ on up!

    My wife finally got rid of some furniture that she’d been storing in my home office, so after far too long out in the garage, ya boy can finally drum in air conditioning (just in time for fall and winter 😂) Still adjusting the ergonomics of it, like how the bass legs are clearly still wobbly...

    It was the ADHD for me.

    your most favorite bassist/drummer rhythm section

    Without a doubt it's Matt Maginn (bass) and Clint Schnase (Drums) from Cursive. They laid down that locked-in beat over which the guitarists and cellist could create chaos. Album example: The Ugly Organ

    Paper catalogs for my kids

    Y'all, Does anyone know if Musician's Friend or Guitar Center still do paper catalogs anymore? My nine-year-old son is learning guitar and my six-year-old son is learning the drums. I like to do small, non-forcing things to help them stay interested in learning their instruments. One thing I...
