    Music for my skate video?

    Hey Drummerworld, I know I haven't been active for awhile--I'm sorry, but that's because I've been working on learning to better use my film and editing equipment for the skate/film camp I'm going to, Camp Woodward. So basically, I'll be shooting and editing a skateboarding video in the film...

    Drumming @ Best Buy What do you think? It's me, just kind of laying down a funky groove. The guy who came in at the end was really cool. It was his first time ever playing a drum set, and he was pretty good (he hit around on the toms, but semi-rhythmically).

    Why do drums cost less than guitars?

    Why do drums cost less than guitars? I see super-expensive guitars for hundreds of thousands of dollars, sometimes even millions! And then even a SUPER nice drum set is only, maybe, $20,000 if not less! Is there a reason for this? It seems drum sets would cost more, because of all the metal...

    New cymbals + gear!

    This weekend, to kick off spring break, my family went to Virginia Beach, where I visited Alpha Music. Now, this was not your ordinary, run-of-the-mill local music store. Alpha music is like Guitar Center, except 200 percent better. The staff are friendly, they have a HUGE selection (like...

    I have an amazing idea

    Here's the game plan: I'll start a band. On Youtube. A Youtube band. I get a bassist, guitarist, and a singer. I'll be the drummer. We all agree on a song to play, and we record ourselves covering it, without the actual music playing. They send all the clips to me, and I edit us all together...

    Losing invaluable work

    About one and a half years ago, I was on the phone with an Apple tech, trying to get my camcorder to work with iMovie. There were about 20 folders of video, that wasn't anywhere else but on my camera. The support person said that all of these were the same, and that I just had to back up one...

    Good, cheap, drum mics

    Hey everyone! As you know, I record videos on Youtube, of drum covers and stuff. I'd like to take this a step further and have my kit sound amazing, by micing it up. The problem: I know pretty much nothing about mics--all I know is to avoid cheapies like Nady, CAD, etc. I also know that a...

    This has been happening to me for a while. While this word might not normally be brought up in conversation, I noticed that whenever someone mentions an aquarium, I think and say "Aquarian" instead. I know this is a trivial matter, but does this happen to you?

    SKIII + a surprise!

    When my Aquarian Superkick II kick drum head ripped, I gave Mr. Roy Burns a ring, and he kindly sent me a new one. What I wasn't expecting, though, was the weight of the box; it was very heavy for a drum head. When I brought it up to my room and I opened it, I found a pleasant surprise: An...

    NiN drummer Josh Freese sells his soul

    Not literally, but here is the new promotion for his new album: You know how Nine Inch Nails tie the digital goods (which can be duplicated ad infinitum) to scarce goods (merch, collector’s items, signed items, etc) to engage their audience and give them a chance to choose how much...

    My new DW 5000s

    My DW 5000 Accelerator AD3 double pedal just came about half an hour. I set it up, adjusted it, and snapped some pictures. First impressions: -The hardware itself is ROCK SOLID. Nothing moves, everything is sturdy. -It looks GREAT with my kit. Seriously. Red and black, red and black, red and...

    Oh NO!

    Oh god...I was just practicing my double bass, when all of a sudden, I go to retune my SuperKick II, when I notice it has a huge rip in it! It didn't break all the way through, but the first thin layer of the head completely ripped open, and now it's kind of just flapping about! So what should...

    I've looked all over the internet, and can't seem to find any good drum hoodies! I want a solid black one, zipper, and either Zildjian, Paiste, DW, or Aquarian. However, I can't seem to find ANY! Does anyone have a drum hoodie, or know where I can find one?
