Worth your time, any age or experience level
Drummers of all ages and experience levels will find something useful here. Is it a polished broadcast? Thankfully, no. These are real drummers, sitting in the office of a mentor who cares, surrounded by gear and talking drums. This is the drumming community at it's best, namely, real people with a variety of experiences and skill levels, getting together to give of themselves and share what they know. You will relate to these guys. As a fellow drummer, I feel like I’m sitting in the room with them, absentmindedly retaping my trusty old Calato RegalTip 662’s for the umpteenth time as someone else is popping drags on their knee while we all shoot the breeze and let the conversational tangents take us where they may. No hidden commercial agendas, no showboat arrogance run amok. If the gear is good, they tell you why. If it stinks, they tell you why. Most importantly, if they aren’t sure, they’ll tell you it’s a guess rather than blowing smoke up your six. You will relate to these guys. You will learn things of value. These guys are real. They are us. Dave and company are giving something back to the Brotherhood, for all the right reasons. Subscribe. Support. Rock on.
Essential to Drummers
This is a very good podcast for drummers to listen to. Not only does it have a new rudiment and topic every week, but it also has a new drummer every week with new music and drum solos. This podcast has already helped me, and I haven't even heard many episodes of it.
The Cutting Edge of Drummer Talk
If you are looking for an inside look to the buisness, art, love, and hobby of drumming, this is where it's at. The laughter, good times, and awesome drummer talk never stops with Dave and his crew. So, subscribe today and join in on the discussion.
