First mini refurb of the year with this poor soul.

Typical house snare, battered to death and full of stoor due to the burst head.

Everything cleaned, new top head, wee couple of secret touches and a good polish.

Right as rain for more of the same!!!!!

Kit and corp snare refurb and tuning service is available, for further details feel free to message.
Cheers!

Wee simple set of massed band 3/4's!

After the success of the recent zoom classes i will be looking to add one more to the schedule.

This will be midweek, probably a Wednesday so feel free to get in touch to book your place.

The other classes have moved to advance level so i will bring this new session back to basics.

Ideal for learners looking to push on and established players looking to improve their technique.

Places are limited to 10 per session on a first come first served basis.


Cheers folks!

I had a challenge from one of my pupils as to where we could take the bpm with paradiddle and it got me thinking........

I wonder where the top guys in the pipe band world are at with this?

I reckon the guys at the very top could be pushing world records.

Here is my effort at 215bpm x4

Hybrid technique used for improving strength and overall control.

The idea behind this is a ZERO response playing surface ( i use muffler pads) so that every beat has to be played with no rebound assistance.

Not a pipe band style but fantastic as a workout for all drummers.

Loving these.

This years fanfare will be fun!

Off the back of the last video i was asked if the pad squeeked when rolling on it and also how clear it was at different volume levels.

Hopefully this video answers your questions.

Jamming on the Russell Esler Drumming Rogue pad.

This is an excellent pad all round.

ZOOM PLAYALONG SESSIONS!!!!!

Drumkit practice sessions are now available weekly.

This is proving to be very popular as it's basically a practice session that you might not normally do.

It's a bit of a workout designed to promote limb independance, flexibility, stamina and tempo control.

This is a headphone/earpiece playalong session where we will examine the mechanics and rudiments of the popular beats for gigging drummers.

Feel free to PM any questions!
