    Hey all, I just picked up Modern Drummer and Drum! and saw almost the exact same picture on the cover. I read both articles (Joey Jordison of Slipnot) back to back and it's basically the same one. There is one thing interesting, Drum! did not get his kit right. They are missing two cymbals, specifically a crash and second high hat. What gives? How can a national mag mess up on something so easy. Modern Drummer talks about the second high hat and has pics of the kit so I know MD is right. It leaves me wondering what else they get wrong.

        I just recently cancelled my Drum! subscription, since they seem more interested in drummer's tattoos than music... Such a crap magazine, it's unbelieveable. If I want to know about a Nu-Metal drummer's image I'll buy Metal Hammer, thank you very much.

          I can't even stand Metal Hammer anymore. I'm going only with Plutonium Pickax. They give you MRI's of famous drummers spleens

            I'm still not sure about which one is better. I have been reading both for about a year and while they very often write the same articles, usually not the same month, both offer something different in their own way. I can't believe they can make such a huge and simple mistake but they are the only two drum mags I know of.

              There's also Stick-It!, which is written by Zoro and a few other known drummers out there. Harder to find, but very well written, plus the subscription comes with a CD. http://www.stickitonline.com

                      That is severe and I think that is the reason in my case as well.

                        Who needs to read a magazine when one can learn everything there is to know about drums here?

                          Do these magazines ever feature anything about electronic drums? I read more so producer and keyboard magazines, such as Electronic Musician, and Keyboard Magazine. I don't think most drummer magazines would have much offer in my world full of sequencers and samplers.

                            Electronic drums are hardly mentioned in the publications that are available, which shows where the electronic drums sit with people.

                            I wish there was a publication for electronic drummers, but there isn't one. So this forum (and a few others) are it for now. Too bad.

                              Have any of you guys tried the UK based mag "rythmn"

                              It's actually a really good read...with middles of the road stuff on all aspects of drums and drummers, and a natty strapline "beats working".

                              However, as part of my work I deal with the specialist motorcycle press in the UK in a marketing capacity. It's exactly the same as the drum mag market. Here's the equation:

                              Number of manufacturers x av spend per manufacture = total pot for mags on sexy journo's.

                              In a market where there are only a few players, and not big budgets, there's not that much money for great features!
