  • Just me

    I'm on this forum for a few month's now and I realized that I have never properly introduced myself.
    My name is Peter Stegeman, 38 years old and I live in the Netherlands.
    I'm playing e-drum for over seven years now and before that 10 years a-drums.
    In 1994 I saw a Roland demo from the TD-7 that was brand new at that time, and I was really impressed.
    I bought the set first just for practicing at home. It really improved my playing and the relationship with my neighbors.
    Later when the band I was playing at that time bought a better PA system, I tried it out at rehearsals.
    My band mates where a little skeptical at first but later they are very pleased with it. Now they never want me to play a-'s again. (Well, I have to admit, my a-'s sound like **** and that helps a lot when my band mates got there opinion about my TD-7 )
    After a while of practicing with the band I did try it out at a small gig. We didn't like it because the sound of my TD-7 was real crap on stage. So we spend a lot of money on monitoring and after that everybody was happy.
    The last two years I bought more and more V-drum stuff and my TD-7 evolved into a TD-10 concert kit including the TD-10 brain, two KD-7 kicks and a Turkey chromed rack.
    At this time I'm playing in two bands, one is a Rockband www.meneervanzanten.x1.nl (sorry in Dutch) in which we play only songs that we made ourselves, and the other one is a coverband (Site is not available yet) where we play numbers from Melissa Etheridge, Skunk Anansie and that sort of stuff.
    The bands are both not commercial, all the money that we earn is spend in new gear for the bands.

    I hope that I can contribute to this forum because I'm an oldbie on e- and v-drum stuff comparing to a lot of guys here. On the other hand this forum already helped me a lot for some of the problems I had.
    The best tip I read until now was tuning the base for the ambiance by a soundcheck. I do not remember who that was but it was really great!!!

    Greetings,

    Peter

        LOL! Very nice Cyber... however, this looks like it's Danish and not Dutch. But hey, it's the intent that counts!

        And now some Dutch:

        Peter, welkom op dit forum. Zoals je al gemerkt hebt is Nederland hier goed vertegenwoordigd!

                you guys definitely have a strong posse in here.

                i think the thing i love the most about you dutch guys is the frequency of your use of the word, "Greetings," to close your posts.

                always cracks me up.

                        alright, caspar.

                        alright ...

                        (i like it, kind of a 60s black power thing happening)

                        do they teach you "greetings" as a valediction (3-point word) in school in nederlands?

                          I think i should take some refresh-course English!

                          And I thaught (if that's correct???) primary school and no it's not a three-point-word!
