General Board / Re: I'm New Here ... (introduce yourself)
« Last post by Brett Sheaffer on April 03, 2018, 11:19 AM »
Like several of you in recent posts, I'm not new here, but haven't been actively posting on the forum since -- wow -- early 2012. Life happens sometimes.  But with it, hopefully a bit more understanding and maturity, right?
I just turned 50 last year, and with that milestone I'm feeling more persuaded to be available to share what I've learned over the years, and be a part of others' growth.  So I'm hoping I can do a better job of not just visiting the forum from time to time, but usefully contributing on a regular basis.

Gear / Equipment / Instruments / Roland TM-2 Bass drum setup
« Last post by beyondbetrayal on March 31, 2018, 08:02 PM »
I made this video to give to people who ask me what my Roland settings are, or if they are having issues with double triggers and miss hits. I go over all the settings, what they do, and what ones to use. Copying my settings is not good as we all have different drums and play differently. Learning how to set it up, and WHAT THE SETTING DO, can save you in a live situation.

Technique(s) / Tom groove YouTube lesson
« Last post by beyondbetrayal on March 23, 2018, 02:00 PM »
Here is a quick video I made on tom grooves... Still playing around with mixing techniques and figured it would be a good way to hit them lots. I also have a new push to talk button for my mic which will save me a ton of time in future videos.

Nothing too advanced here but a fun way to experiment with grooves you already know how to play.

My first kit was by Barclay.  Not sure if they were a Pearl child or not.
Here's a cool site about Japanese drums of the past.

Gear / Equipment / Instruments / Re: Help Me With Drumsticks Slipping
« Last post by Jon E on March 22, 2018, 03:05 PM »
I have dry hands so sticks slip on me because of that.

I have used Gorilla Snot for a long time.  You will freak out (at first) when you feel how sticky it is.  But I like it.
I have also started wrapping some sticks with tennis racket handle tape.  It is a bit rubbery and I like the way it feels.
