Re: Singing Drummer

I shall have to look into that mic. Thanks man. One thing is for certain, i am NOT wearing a headset. Copeland may have done it. But I think it makes a drummer look too much like a sports announcer.

Re: 21th century surf drummers

I think that not only do bands have to find a drummer dedicated to the surf style of playing, but also someone who strives to achieve that 60s surf drum sound. For someone to meet those two...
