  • New Old Guy Says Hi!

    I'm retired and It's some years since I've had a pair of sticks in my hand, I live in an apartment in Tenerife, so I figured that I'd indulge myself and buy a set of DTX stuff.

    I'm very grateful and appreciative, that you VDrum guys indulge the opposition, by allowing them to post and use your forum. The DTX forum compared to VDrums, is a very sad affair, and currently unusable as it's alive with Trojan Virus's (or so my firewall tells me). Although when it was working, the spirit of the DTX crew and their support was faultless.

    Having visited the Yamaha DTX Facebook website and seen how slick and professional it is, it's hard to believe that they're the same company that created the DTX Forum, fact is stranger than fiction.

    Anyway, thank you all for being so inclusive and non tribal! . . . . . . . . . .

        Welcome to the forum, Velocette!

        I totally agree with you about the DTXperience forum. It's a visual nightmare with too big graphics and too small fonts.
        Then we'd better have our newly designed vdrums-forum!

        (Issues of parse-errors, server-problems, snail-speed posting, G.A.S-pains, voodoo trickery, mad golfers and excessive beer consumption are being worked on.... Promised!)
