For some of us, drum notation is kind of a sore topic of discussion. I think most of us who have studied drumming are used to writing notation down of a groove, or chop that we came up with but what if you wanted to try variations on the fly and experiment with other voicing options on the kit? Well, you could dive into various software to notate them but most of these programs have a steep learning curve or maybe the program is easy to learn but lacks the realistic sounds that you are trying to achieve.
Fueled by passion and a burning desire to teach is the motivation behind the idea, success and innovation behind Mikeslessons.com. What started as a an innocent video on YouTube as a way to communicate to Mike's students while he toured with Simon Says became a game changer for online drum education.
Benny Greb Byzance Vintage Sand Series cymbals are like no other. Its unusual sandblasted surface gives it a soft feel and a distinct matte finish. Its low, dark and somewhat dry washy sound isn’t too soft or loud. With its great stick definition and short sustain, you can dig into Byzance Vintage for total control at all times. It’s a sound that fits into any music that isn’t in the upper decibel levels.
The CDG Practice Pack is a new product combination that just made sense to us. Previously we introduced the CDG Quiet Pack which consisted of a set of Aquarian Super Pads and the Zildjian L80 Low Volume Cymbals. Now we are offering the option of adding a Prologix Percussion 12" Blue Lightning or a 12" Red Storm practice pad.
