Never been a big fan of Korg. Let me know when it's out or if you have any demo mp3s of it.... I wouldnt mind hearing them.
calm down Mr. QUOTE!!! hahaha
I've been playing for about 6 years. I haven't taken it really seriously. I probably haven't gotten any better since 8th grade. I'm in 12th now, but still an extremely big novice. Hell I don't even know the difference in stick sizes. Reminding me to go buy some.
My drums are in pretty awesome shape, no scratches, nothing besides being a little dusty.
I had a band together for about 6 months last yera, but it fell apart so I just slap in a cd, put on the head phones and drum away. I love doing it, but I can't stand some of the retards that want me to play for their bands.
I really want to find some kids to play with, but in the past, the kids were cool at first, but became real assholes when I wasn't into their real heavy music.
Lol, the only reason i keep sticks is so i can play drummania when i go to the sunsplash in roseville. I loved playing when i did, but space, time, and monetary constraints really kind of limit my drum playing for the time being.
Sunday nights are usually pretty boring around these parts, so perhaps one of these times Ill see if i can drag my girlfriend out and see whats what.
I HATE nylon tips.
Vater 5B wood tip or Vic Firth 5B wood tip for me
And while everyone's posting pics of their drums:
and the Schecter...
Yeah, TDM is a fun game, though i wish it had better songs on the American version. Though its nowhere near as fun as drummania.
The Vaters DO seem to break quicker, but while they last they have a crisper sound ('course that wouldn't apply to mister nylon tip over here)....The Vic's are made of a softer wood, so they have somewhat of a warmer less-crisp sound, but last a lot longer than the Vaters.
The tips on the Vic's tend to chip, too, and I've never had that problem with Vater's...It all evens out IMO...Generally, I just go with whatever the music store here has more of in stock...because I HATE playing with 2 different sets of sticks in a show....
I also mark my sticks 'R' and 'L', because for some weird reason I have to always have the same stick in the same hand....
I jus plain don't like nylon tips....
Dude, knowing jazz is ESSENTIAL....you should look into it, jazz is teh uber awesome to play....
I play some jazz stuff, kind of upbeat, not too slow. Wood tips own for jazz.
Looking into my stick bag.... I have some broken Vic's, mostly Broken ProMark's. Don't ask why, but I never throw away stuff.
I might as well join in on the pic posting =)
I don't know if anyone will care here, but my sorta step-uncle I got my set from plays for Drown Mary. They opened for slayer, I believe theyt got signed last summer, and yeah played on the jagermeister fest. I'm not too into that style of music, but man, my step-uncle tears it up on the drums. I can't believe some of how he plays so fast on some stuff.
