  • Old dog learning new tricks ...

    OK, I'm not that old ... mid-thirties. I've been playing acoustic drums for 20 years and just purchased my first edrum kit, the TD-9SX. I love that little kit! I've decided to use it at a gig (for the first time) on Friday night with a cover band. The diverse sound options of the TD9 should be great for the variety of styles that we will play. This is my big leap of faith moment with edrums. I'm excited!

    My background ... I played drums for the high school jazz/pop choir. Then, I played in a few rock bands during college. After college, I took took some time off from playing live, but always played as a hobby (and for my creative release). Recently, I've hooked-up with a cover band, and I'm back to playing live. I am a nerd by day and drummer by night ... I guess you could call me the Clark Kent of drumming. It's great to be in the V-drum community. I've already received some great suggestions about my upcoming gig. Thanks for your support.

      Likewise, welcome!

      Austin's a lovely town. Most of my family lives there and we visit frequently. Plenty of good musicians there too!

        V(ader)DRUMMER, stickinthemud,

        Thanks for the warm welcome. I'm actually in Dallas tonight. I grew up in "the Metroplex", but I sure do enjoy Austin. Keep on drumming ...

            Welcome Matt!

            I thought Stewart Copeland was the Klark Kent of drumming but I might be mistaken...

              I haven't even poured my morning coffee, and I've already learned something today. Excellent! Thanks. From my quick Internet search, "Klark Kent" was Copeland's secret 80's pop project. My curiosity is peaked. I'll have to give their stuff a listen.
