Hello, my name is Yann. I'm a complete beginner at drumming, but I co-invented an air drumming instrument with a drummer friend. I'm joining drummer café to participate around discussions about air-drumming, and more I hope.

I'm really excited the instrument made Drummer Café's news today :)

Here are my Sonor Designer Maple Lites in Bubinga.

I bought 8 shells (no snare) that were advertised as 'unused and kept in storage as an investment.'  I think they were manufactured in 2005 and were apparently ordered for a tribute band tour that never materialized. In fact, if anyone has any pics of Chester Thompson around that time playing Sonor kits, I'd be really interested to see them as I can't find any.

Everything is totally mint, with my only concern being the 'gap' in the finish and apparent glue marks on the 8" tom. Pictures below.

This is my first Double Bass set up kit, so please feel free to comment. Ill post in the appropriate thread on that later. Remote hats and primary hats are just thrown in there at the moment until my legless hat stand arrives and i can get the pedals organized.

Hope you like it. Now, where did I put my 'how to play double bass licks' DVD?

You also might want to check out my video report from Summer NAMM 2013 where I interview Todd Trent from Taye drums. He demonstrates all of the features of the Taye Metalworks Kick pedal, albeit the single pedal. You'll be able to see all of the great features and adjustments of the pedal.

I currently own DW single pedals, sold my DW double pedal, and plan to purchase the Taye Metalworks in the near future to replace them all.

Check out the Taye Metalworks Double Pedal:

I was very impressed with the feel and unique adjustments available on the single and double Metalworks pedals by Taye. The double pedal is available for less than $400.

Looking for a new pedal and I don't want to spend more than $400. What do you guys consider to be the best for the price?

Hi All! I'm new to the Drummer Cafe forum so I just want to make an introductory post. I play in Stimpy Lockjaw, a jazz/fusion/prog/rock/metal band. We play all original music. Anyway, just wanted to post up our latest youtube clip previewing sections from our upcoming record. Please let me know what you think! Cheers!

Technique(s) / Re: Fighting laziness above certain tempos

I have no doubt that you'll see a pretty huge difference pretty quickly if you want to invest a bit to study up and get on the right track.

Good luck to you!

I definitely am considering it, thanks! I think my technique is fine for slow to mid speeds, and it seems to be the most natural feel for me that keeps the best time, but again, it chokes up at above 120-125 bpm. I have about 4 weeks of school left and a somewhat scattered summer schedule (for some alliteration) after that, so I'll have to see when I can do this. Until then, I'll try to pull together resources as much as I can and try to learn to relax more at the tempos troubling me.

Hey, thanks for the endorsement Bart (the check's in the mail).

Matthew, it's definitely a matter of technique. You're forcing your body to do something the hard way and you body's letting you know that it doesn't like it. What you're experiencing is very common and I specialize in helping people get out of their own way in order to play more relaxed, more musically, fast etc. In addition to the site I also teach lessons over Skype. I have no doubt that you'll see a pretty huge difference pretty quickly if you want to invest a bit to study up and get on the right track.

Good luck to you!
