A mobile version of Vic Firth's popular practice tool for drummers of all skill levels! This issue includes play along tracks for each of the 40 Essential Rudiments in 5 graduated levels, making it easy to track your progress from the very beginning (Bronze) to the highest level (Diamond). The rudiment issue also includes easy access to a "breakdown" playlist of each rudiment performed from slow, to fast, to slow.

Alongside the rudiments, you'll also get a healthy dose of inspiration!

Perfect Drumming App!
I just downloaded this app and I can already tell from the structure of it that this is going to beat any other drumming app you can find. The videos in the rudiment section are amazing. It makes me want to improve my drumming. It's also nice to finally have all 40 rudiments in one app with all of the tempo levels plugged in to let drummers practice just by using their mobile device. I've been waiting for this app and I'm glad it's finally here.
Everything almost perfect
The layout, videos, descriptions, and audio tracks have all been everything I've been waiting for. Now I don't have to be tied down to my computer when I want to improve my rudiments. My only complaint is that on some rudiments like the para diddle or flam tap, there's some bugs with the diamond level where it just won't play or plays at silver level. Other than that, perfect, 5 stars!
Needs hybrid rudiments
This is a great app for playing on the fly, weather it's with friends or practicing by your self, the app is perfect for working on rudiments. It really needs hybrid rudiments on the app, you can find them on the web page but on the app would be better.
