I figured since guitarist and bassist have their own thread, drummers should, too! I don't think this is going to have very many posts, though, hahaha.

Drums:
Gretsch Renown maple four-piece
14x6.5 maple snare
12x9 rack
16x16 floor
22x20 bass

I'm also starting to build my own stave drums.

Cymbals: All Paiste
14" Dark Energy top over Traditional Bottom
20" Traditional Medium Light
22" Traditional Light
24" Giant Beat

Hardware:
Gibraltar
1 5600 series snare stand
1 *8600 series snare stand
2 6600 series straight stands
1 9600 series boom stand
1 9600 series hydraulic moto throne
1 9600 series DD hi-hat pedal
Tama:
1 Iron Cobra Power Glide Double Pedal

Style: Rock, Jazz, Funk, Fusion, some Metal, R&B, trying to currently get into Latin
Infulences: JJ Johnson, Steve Jordan, Russ miller, Jojo Mayer, John Bonham (who isn't influenced by him?) Vinnie Colaiuta, Gavin Harrison; there are more, they just are not popping into my head, ATM.
Years of playing: 3.5

I love drumming, and I just can't seem to stop. To me, there is nothing better than a simple but awesomely "groovy" groove with chops that are added in the right place. And that goes for any song, in my opinion.

I started playing drums in 6th grade. Got a kit, trashed it. #2 same. #3 I ended up selling unfortunately. So technically I dont have any drums right now, but I'm still a drummer.

I play mostly hard rock/metal
Been playing for 18 years(?)

My influeneces are-
Lars(If you dont know, I'm sry)
Vinny paul(Pantera)
Thomas Haake(Meshuggah, even if you hate metal, listen to this guy. Absolute genius)
Danny Carey(Tool)
There's others but alot of guys dont have too distinct enough styles for me to say they're "influential"

I'm definately a power player but with purpose.

BTW, I didnt literally throw my kits in the trash. I've been building houses for ten years and swinging a hammer all day didnt do my drums any favors! I pretty much wore em out.

Good lord, you need to see a teacher about technique!! That and look at secret weapons for the modern drummer. Lars Ulrich? hmmm.. That's an intersting influence. Thomas Haake is an amazing drummer.

I started out with just a snare drum. Learned the basics and then got a set and just listened to music while I tried to play it. Learning by ear helped me in the long run but I cant read music for crap now.

Yes, rudiments are your best friend. It would be wise to start to learn to read again, even if you don't use it often, it would be a very useful tool.

What's a snare? Ask Lars. He'd be happy to show it you on St. Anger!

I wish I was a drummer. I just don't have room for a set. But I might be moving in with my friend, and he has a small cheap set that I'm going to practice on. Drums are so cool. My kid will be a drummer.

And there's already two drummers on SO. So that's two more drummers than there are in my area.

Hahahahaha, I watched that video a while ago. Lars does have a good sense of humor! If you REALLY want to drum, get a practice pad, sticks and look at Vic Firth's site for rudiments. Be creative!!! Vinnie Calaiuta did the same thing and he is an absolute monster. Start him/her out young!

I pretty much only play because I enjoy it and its a great release(kind of explains the trashed drums). I dont want to perform or be the next Rob Portnoy by any means. So I guess reading music isnt important to me. I've never been good at learning from reading or being told. I have to acually see it or do it.

And Lars was an influence due to me liking Metallica since I was 7. And Justice For All was the album I learned to play a kit too.
