Drummer Talk Archives – Custom Drum from A to Z(ed) (Part II)

We are on our annual Winter Retreat here at VISIBLE SCHOOL, so please enjoy this show from the archives!  This show originally aired Jan 16, 2006.

We finally finish part 2 of Custom Drums from A-Z(ed) with Bryan Rumfola. Plus we talk all about bass drum drum head choices and the many options for you and the Pearl Reference reference returns. Oh, and Steve Gadd swings by for a visit!! (P.S. I know the sound is a little peak-ish on this episode and the background music is a bit loud but please bear with us. It was a crazy sound night last night.)

Note: part I can be found here.

Drummer Talk Archives – Pearl Reference Drums/Steve Gadd Clinic

This show originally was originally posted August 25, 2005.  What’s hysterical is how from the very beginning I was trying to get these guys to lean closer to the mics.  Anyway, it’s cool to see how much the show has changed, but also how much it’s remained completely the same …

Our first studio show of Dave Kropf’s Drummer Talk. Features Dave, Shane Flynn, Wes Melton, Ian McClellan, and DJ Kirk engineering. We talk about Pearl’s Reference Series drums, Steve Gadd’s clinic tour, and getting into the music scene. Plus, beat up Pink Floyd Shirts.

Correction: On today’s show, I said that Chester Thompson played Pearl. This is incorrect, Chester Thompson is a DW endorser. My apologies.
