Music, Musicians & Musicianship / Peter Erskine Now Endorsing Tama Drums
« Last post by Bart Elliott on January 22, 2015, 06:05 PM »
Tama recently announced the addition of jazz legend Peter Erskine to their artist roster. Peter's primary kit will be a beautiful STAR Bubinga kit in their new Sunny Yellow Lacquer finish.

I have to admit that I was surprised with this announcement. Peter, who is a member of this forum, had a long history with Yamaha, switched to DW Drums a few years ago, and has now moved to Tama.

My guess, besides Peter just loving the drums, is that since he has a personal Japanese connection (TAMA is in Japan) along with his product creation ideas (like that of Yamaha and DW), it makes since that Tama would snatch him up. To my knowledge, Tama hasn't really had someone like Peter on the roster, so be on the lookout for some new signature gear and creative products in the very near future.  ;D

The manual says to try PD7 first and if you aren't getting a stable volume (velocity) on that setting to try P1 and P2. 

No matter what you do, you will not be able to use all 3 zones of a 3 zone ride trigger with a TD-8 brain.  It will, presumably, only recognize the bow and bell trigger zones and not the edge trigger.

I'm thinking of buying a Yamaha PCY155 to use with my Roland TD-8. What pad setting should I use on the TD-8?

I've started over so many times that I can't remember when I quit. Now I run into the same problem many times over. "You play really good, but you're as old as my Dad."  ::)
I've played with some very good musicians over the years. But still end up with the same problem. So here I am, same problem different year.  :-\

Practice to everything you hear that you want to play (some very cool beats in new music BTW) then find a couple of bands looking for a drummer and go play. Make sure you have decent time...Have fun.

Yamaha did this in the 1980s with a little program called MIDI.  ;D

Hi guys and fellow colleagues :)

I have a free app that I created for Windows platform. It is called Ultimate DrumKit.

It lets you play drums via keyboard - SIMPLE, FAST and EASY.

There are three drumsets but also there is an option for you to import your own sounds into app.

I would really like to hear your opinion and do you have fun using it ;)

Enjoy ;)

If I can do it believe me that anyone could reach that speed. I've been playing this routine for 3 years now, once a day from monday to saturday the 365 days of the year. But don't worry about how faster you can play it, slow it down get it clean and relax if still not clean slow it down more until you can play it perfectly from start to end. The technical skills to play faster will come along don't force it

As you said you can work on trouble spots to get better and don't forget to keep your taps down, good luck with it!
