Hi everyone! This is my semi-formal introduction to drum connect community, as it were. I have never been intricately or vigoursly (maybe the word I'm looking for is regularly) involved in a drummers forum discussion or anything to the effect of, but anyways, here goes...
I have been drumming for 8 and 1/2 years( I started at 13), and have taken private lessons for 7 years.
I play (to varied degrees and skill levels) and respect all styles of music, well most at least.
Preferred equpipment: vic firth
drumkits/sets and would definitely consider anything manufactured by DW
My primary influences are: Vinnie colaiuta, Dave Weckle, Steve Gadd, Billy Cobham, Virgil Donati and Danny Carey. My drum teacher easily makes this list as well.
I hope this is sufficient.
