    This is one of those unicorn drums I've always got my eye out for.

    Very cool stuff. Whenever I"m playing "Get Lucky" for the millionth time at some wedding, I imagine their version in my head ha ha! Their original music is super cool too.

    Killer UK garage feel.

    The drummer in these videos has killer pocket. He's nailing that idiosyncratic garage feel. Also, there is tasty use of electronics, and he finds some places to drop really clever embellishments and...

    I found the album quite meandering. There's no "Stinkfist," "Aenima," or "The Grudge," or "Parabola" on this album. Every Tool album has had a few songs like those, that just smash their way out of...

    I'd think you want a bit of that beat-up, worn-down, dust-beaten tone for traditional country!

    Yes! Came here to add The Clash take on "I Fought The Law" specifically, but both of these covers are awesome.

    Great topic!

    1. Did you get support from a parent or guardian?

    Yeah. My dad is a drummer, so he offered lots of guidance, and let me borrow gear. He'd drive me to shows before I drove, and...

    I think Rototoms look way cooler, and will give you a greater contrast in sound from your standard toms.

    I use standard fit in-ears, and keep the click or music I'm working with at a low volume so I can still hear the drums well. I don't think I'm compromising my sense of dynamics. You're always going...
