Re: What is YOUR Top 10 Drummer's List of All Time

Just saw this. Ok, so Neil Peart has to create a style? If you prefer John Rutsey to Neil, that's your choice and that's fine, but having technique is always a bonus. Does having more cymbals and...

Re: What is YOUR Top 10 Drummer's List of All Time

Umm, don't think so. Try Zeppelin's "When The Levee Breaks" or Rush's "Tom Sawyer".
Someone needs to listen to more music.

Waht Is Carl Palmer Playing Here?

Can anyone tell what snare drum Carl Palmer is using here? Hard to tell but one of the best shots may be at the 2:22 mark.
Is that a Zoomatic strainer found on some Slingerlands?

Re: Safer Than Sorry - Wrap Newbie

Sorry one question that just occurred to me.

Re: Newbie Dealing With Butcher Block Finish
