you might be asking yourself a few questions
right about now. What makes an "Expert"?
and how do I know these guys are giving
me useful information? These are good questions,
so let us go into a little more detail.
First and foremost, it is The Drum
Expert(s)...so there is more than
just one person with information!
there are so many different instruments,
brands and playing styles in the drumming
world, it is impossible for one person to
know it all. The experts are made up of
two drummers/percussionists that have been
in the drumming world in some form or fashion
for over 70 years of combined drumming experience.
that time, we have developed a network of
industry people and every day drummers that
in some way have become experts in their
own little world of drumming. So we have
professional percussionists, pan players,
drum set players, recording experts, drum
history experts, drum manufacturers and
drum building experts all ready to help.
network of drummers are usually checking
in to our Drum
Forum which has been on the Internet
for over 10 years. There are over
11,000 members! All ready to help
answer questions. So, when Dave and Jim
can't answer a question, we find the person
that can. If we need more background, we
go to the forum and post the question for
our members to help with.
routinely provide detailed information,
links and even images from catalogs to substantiate
the answer and help you do more research.
We have answered 1,000 of questions and
have been doing so for over 10 years. Many
of our recent questions are being stored
on our Drumming
the FAQ, we can archive this valuable information
for others to find. This gives us a great
resource for years to come and
also provides a track record of our work
in the drumming world.
