Hi everyone.


I am a 51 year old professional drummer/percussionist. My professional experience traces back over 33 years, playing everything from punk to samba and jazz.

My main instrument is drum set. Secondary instruments ranges from Afro Cuban, Brasilian, African and assorted world percussion. So I work as either drummer or percussionist and sometimes both.

Nice to meet you.

Re: Hi everyone.


We have been playing for the same amount of time. I am glad us old timers keep up, or at least try. I do not have any physical issues with playing yet, save for a few times when arthritis in my thumbs give me a bit of trouble, but I play through the pain. I refuse to give up the love of drums.

Re: Hi everyone.


Hi, I am 62 years old and have been playing since I was 10. I play drums primarily, bass guitar and keyboards and have mastered the djembe, which is like playing a set of tom toms on one drum. Not much for jazz, but as to straight up rock or metal, I have no trouble keeping up at all.

Re: Hi everyone.


By the way.....Leedy was a drum manufacturer at one time. Perhaps you know that already and are just testing the rest of us?
