Seriously. What would you like us to do? In the magazine. In your hometown. On this website. Think about it. I’d love to see your ideas.

i wanted to start by saying i love the magazine i read it from front to back every month, my favorite sections are plugged in i loved Eric Kretz’s dream studio this month, made my mouth water (plus i love his GMS set). i also really like wiretape and all the equipment reviews but im not to sure about that editorial director( haha just kidding Andy).what i would like to see from the magazine is more about recording and how to be heard, where i can be heard, record lables, good websites, clubs, parks, anywhere(in major citys).
what id like to see from the website is the same thing where can i be heard.  id like to post some videos maybe a little place where people looking for a drummer could do some shopping. also upcoming drum events would be sweet.
and in my hometown, like i said i read the magazine front to back i also read all the advertisement’s in there and i know that both ILL., the Drum pad and OH., Columbus percussion have space and are one of few major drum stores id like to see some sort of place set up to go so drummers can go an record them selves. either just mikes or maybe a five piece set miked up with a camera in the room.
we all know how expensive drums are and to then pay for recording equipment and a place to do it, not to mention buying a camera to record yourself can just get to be ridiculous. right now were in a time where music’s hurting so to get recorded and be heard would give people a chance to do some recording over larger distances which could help out the bizz.
other then that you guys are all doin a great job keep it up and thanks.

personally i was thinking of just me/ people playing, gigs would be cool but i was gunna leave the video lessons to you guys. unveiling new drums would be pretty cool i love seeing those beautiful snares and base’s brand new. maybe some personal footage of some big drum venues i know there’s one coming up in Cleveland OH. pretty soon or your favorite drummer blasting away.

Here on the site, but especially in the magazine, I would love to see a lot more articles and reviews on drums and drum gear, and not just the expensive stuff, but the affordable kits and gear that tend to be in a price range that is affordable for most drummers.

Agreed.  Most magazines regardless of subject love to advertise the top of the line gear.  I am assuming the advertisers don’t want to waste ad space on mediocre gear, even though that’s what most of us can afford.  They want to sell the top line stuff so they advert the top line stuff and of course always put the list price as if anyone sells for that price.

A way to link up our postings to our YouTube and Facebook and MySpace Video’s and or Audio recordings so we can show off our expertise to the rest of the group.

Likewise, a lot more info on the gear thats priced for “Normal” people with bills, wives, babies and 2 cars and 2 jobs just to survive.

Drum Lesson Video’s and oh,  how about some lessons showing some quick in and out fills that find their way into live playing that arent covered by most drum lesson video’s.  Maybe some alternate rhythm patterns that can be thrown in to “color” up a routine type pattern.  Lessons on playing Dynamics with a live band, in all the different genre’s.  Here in Oklahoma, New Mexico, Texas and lots of other states,  jazz fusion, hard rock and heavy metal arent genre’s that are found in most of the clubs that still hire live bands, but Top 40 Country and Traditional Country, Big Band and Western Swing are…so why not have some practical lessons covering these styles of drumming because working bands require a lot more than just a passing knowledge of 2/4 and 4/4 patterns.


Country music is played on more radio stations than any other genre of music, yet the majority of drum lessons cover everything BUT these styles of music. Too easy?  Too Simple?  Not by a long shot~! 

There is a lot of money being made by bands who play Country Music in all its different styles yet finding competent young drummers is hard to find due to a lack of practical instruction on how to cover these styles of music.

JMO~~!

Most of those videos can be found easily on you tube. I think seeing members videos of their set ups and playing situations would be highly entertaining.

i like that also i liked seeing how the Vic Firth drums sticks were made in the other issue. maybe you could switch around between differnt drum brands and see how each make their drum differently i know Brady drums makes there out of some crazy wood i think from Austraila, and im guessing there not makeing the same way Ludwig is today.  it be cool to see the progression of drum compains like Ludwig too. as the Beatles grew how did the progress there drums and drums in general. what were some earlyer drum companies that look promising but didnt cut it. o how are acrylic drums made are the vacuumed? has it changed.

for the videos i know i can find them on you tube but id like to see a collection that people here think are good not just what i do. and the convienice thing wouldnt be bad either, being that im already on this page. maybe mutiple forums though for drum lessons, pro drum videos, just you/ the drummer, and you and your band.
