    Yea so your all trying to sneek in here now behind my back, thinking I'd relaxed my vigilance and that I'm not going to see ya but you are oh so wrong haha.

    You will have to do a lot better than that to get under my radar.

    Hi Phil, yea these E-kits are a lot more sociable, especially if you have neighbours. They don't quite feel the same as an A-kit but you will soon get use to them. Loads of brains here to help you out.

    Hi Neil, glad you could join us mate. What do you actually want to achieve with your drum playing ? Whatever it is, keep it fun, and what Jim says, keep up the basic lessons.

  • Yea he was employed to play and mimic Phil while Phil was singing but he really did seem to have a very similar style to Phil. Either that or he was extremely good at imitating him. Even the duel solos you can see they use a very similar sticking pattern.

    Needless to say I have the greatest...

    replied to Which stick holder do you use?
    Re the DIY option, back in the day, a sheet of plastic and plastic glue / stapler, rolled about 6 ins diameter and about 11 ins deep and a disc for the bottom, a wire hook and hang it from the floor tom tensioners. or off the rim. Always worked for me lol...

    I would not go trying to emulate Neil Peart just yet. Maybe 25 years down the line. Just have fun with it and try and get some basic lessons.

    So do you think that what I want is a lot mkok. I thought this would be about the minimum for any pro drummer. How many inputs would I get from the 30 and the 50 then ? I am assuming that all the cymbals would be 3 zone, would all the drums have rim shots (assuming all the drums will we Roland of-course)....

    Hi Mate as it stands, I have a snare, two mounted toms, a floor tom, a kick, two hi-hat inputs, two crash and a ride. As far as the drums are concerned, what I have is what I have always used and don't want any more. The cymbals though I have two crash and a ride and would like a china, another crash...

    Please excuse my ignorance Chris, but as stated before, I am just a very old a-kit rock drummer and when you say about samples and layers, I am not sure what you mean. I have always assumed that samples were just additional kit sounds. Layers, well totally no idea mate....

    I don't know to be honest mkok. Till I get the module and find its limitations its not really possible for me to say.
    I just want a module that has a load of good kit sounds to choose from and be able to go into any of the kits and edit / import triggers (from a library), to get the exact sound...

    HI mate I'm from near Aylesbury and been playing most of my life (I'm nearly 71). Self taught and with no internet back then. Just watch and listen method. Its all about 'the feel' with drumming. Don't get bogged down with anything. Just have fun.

    Yea I want the option to be able to say change the snare pitch or the decay, or its volume in respect to the rest of the kit and likewise for all the triggers in that kit. For the money though I would expect to get a good selection of basic kits to play, and be able to edit each trigger in each kit...
