I agree for sure with the idea of reviews on the intermediate drum models with real pros and cons. I doesn’t have to make it to the print version. Drum heads would be nice too. I have a 7 piece kit so trial and error is expensive!
Videos would be great as well as long as they’re catagorized. ie: lessons, gear, theories, hey look what I can do, etc. I often hit up youtube when I have a bit of downtime to get some ideas and other points of view on techniques. I usually have to go through a lot of crap before finding the right video. I’m really not interested in seeing someone else play along to tom sawyer. A write up on on each video would be nice as well. Like what it is and why I should watch it.
I was actually thinking yesterday as I read the article on grips with Thomas Lang that it would be really great if I could go online and see a video of these different grips. The moeller technique is shown in 5 pictures, but expanding on that and having a video that shows the motions and explains what’s happening would be quite beneficial. I know I can do a youtube search for this technique but I’d rather hear it from thomas lang!
Some video gear reviews with sound samples would be extremely beneficial. IE: different heads on the same drum or different mics on the same drum. In the end, we’re all after a certain sound. Actually hearing that product would make a world of difference.
I hope this helps,
