  • Hello from San Francisco

    Hi there,

    I actually don't have a roland kit unfortunately, but I do have a Simmons SD-7 that I purchased a while ago and wanted to connect with other drummers such as yourselves.

    A little background on me : started playing drums at 13 while taking piano lessons and listening to lots of industrial - grew up listening to a lot of metal. Started marching and playing in orchestras in high school, became a music major and immersed myself in classical percussion and non-percussive orchestral music until I could shed my ego enough to listen to metal again. Weird how even when you think you are immune to social pressures you find yourself overly scared of people's opinions of you.

    Anyway now - I listen to a lot of everything, jazz, anything made with computers, ambient/drone/space, all kinds of stuff.

    Hope to make some friends here and thanks for having me !

            What he REALLY means is that there is a MAJOR social pressure here to be a social misfit. But then again, the man is right....

            Welcome dude
            Ask not whether something is useful -- ask what it is useful for.

            Roland TD-12, Iron Cobra hihat stand and bass-drum pedal from TAMA. My accoustic kit is a Yamaha Power-V Birch with Paiste Alpha-series splashes, crashes, and hihat. My ride is a Zildjan Ping Ride, 20" I think.

            Check out my TD-12 on Youtube. My page is here http://www.youtube.com/HerlPearl.
