  • Hello From North Carolina

    Greetings! Just thought I would jump on here and introduce myself. I am what I would consider a novice drummer. I used to have a Tama Rockstar DX kit, but when I joined the Air Force I wasn't able to keep it. I have played off and on over the course of my 14 year career, 5 active duty and the rest in the reserves. I am finally at a point where I am going to be in the same place long enough that I can start to seriously play again. I have always wanted a TD-20 and finally picked one up. I am loving it. I am just starting to scratch the surface of wht it can do, and it is already blowing my mind. lol. Like I said I am a novice, so if anyone has any tips or tricks that they would be willing to pass along I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks in advance and I am looking forward to getting to know you all.

              Hi Josh.

              Dont spend too much time frigging around with it.

              You got to play.

              Make changes as you go along. What sounds good one week will sound crap the next.

              Ive been playing a TD6 for 2 years come xmas and Im still paying around with the sounds, but I spend a lot more time playing than I do frigging.
