    You're sounding great man!

    I can't wait to get my set setup. I'm electric. I use DrumKat pads, and an Alesis brain. It's been up in the attic of my rental house for the past couple years, but I just got it down yesterday. As soon as I get the time, hopefully this weekend, I'm setting it up and finally jamming again. Until then, here's some (19 year) old footage of a band I was in many years ago called The Bloodletting. You can't see me back there, but it's me. (and yeah, we sucked... really bad.)

    Never had a real set, but I was kinda badass in my day with something like this: Clicky

    Maybe it was just the recording or the snare, but the blast beats sound a little weak. Not like it matters for most DM drummers anyway, since they all use triggers, hehe. You sound good, nonetheless. Keep it up man.

    I usually play electric drums since I live in a dorm, but when I play acoustic, my blast beats are single-footed. They sound punchier, but usually it's hard to make them loud so whatever works.

    Here's a sloppy improv vid of me just messing up, throwing sticks, with dogs barking in the back. Woooooo! Only video I've ever made of myself drumming. I wish I could put more time into it to get better and get a sweet set like yours.

    Oh that's not my set. Haha that thing is sick but it's my dads from like the 60s or 70s. Not really ideal for playing metalish stuff I guess.

    I consider myself more of a general percussionist; I'm not that good with drumset. I am pretty much good with everything else; however, I like to play the marimba especially. I am pretty good with rhythms, although I am not some 'god'. I'm still first chair, but that's because the other drummers at my school don't know jackshit (which is annoying, let me tell you).

    Marimba is fun. I would play that back in hs to piss off my old band director. I was first chair too, for 3 years. The only one who beat me was a senior when i was a freshmen. When he graduated though, i was top dog, including marimba.

    Argh, you're lucky. My school is too 'poor' to afford a marimba.. Although I can't really blame it (my school) or the band director. No one would really know how to correctly play it. I could totally imagine the other percussionists in my school hitting a marimba with plastic sticks, or worse: snare sticks. I could also see them using it as a 'table'. I know this because they already do those things to the xylophone/other instruments...

    In case your wondering, pretty much every Saturday I go to a building (same place where I have my private lessons on Monday) and practice on an actual marimba there. Usually I go in a room with a 5-octave wooden marimba, and let me tell you, it's the best.. I'm so annoyed because I basically get only one day to practice on a real instrument. At my school, I will sometimes stay after all of my classes end and practice on the xylophone there. I use rubber mallets (to get close to the same sound of a marimba) and try to use 4 of them.. It's harder than an actually marimba because the keys are smaller. Also it's a pain because I can only practice parts that aren't in a lower octave range. Ugh, I have been practicing the same marimba solo (Rain Dance) for about 4 months now because I cannot get proper practicing done.. It also feels awkward when practicing solos designed for marimbas on a xylophone. I fuckin' hate life sometimes... [​IMG]

    Hey thats cool man, dont get down on yourself for that. Ive only ever used 4 mallets for one song. "Flight of the Bumble Bee". And that was in 9th grade. I cant just pick up and read xylophone music like you prolly can. I have to memorize it. You on to something great. keep on it.

    Nah, at that point I had a frankenstiener set, a mixture of Rogers, Slingerland, and Pearl, with mostly Tama hardware (tom stands, hi-hat, etc.) It sounded good but it looked like crap. The bass player made me use his friend's kit, which both sounded AND looked nice.

    Pretty soon after that band I went all electric and never looked back.
