    Footboard height

    OK, as far as I know, nobody's posted on this yet, but I need some input from someone who's messed around with bass drum pedals. I currently have a DW5000 double pedal and am looking for a way to improve my speed further. I'm not a beginner with practicing on the double pedals, I've...

    Cradle of Filth / Korn

    OK, wtf is up with these bands as of late? It seems neither band can keep a consistent line-up and with all the crap I've heard regarding Korn's new album, obviously it can't be working out to well.

    Okay, I've 17 and have been drumming for almost 10 years now. As far as putting mics on my set, I have had no need to do so. Many will likely see this as a dumb question but what exactly are triggers (how do they work?) and what are some good companies to purchase from?

    What's your stick preference?

    I play pretty heavy, usually to Lamb of God, Opeth, all those heavy double bass bands. Usually i'm using Zildjian John Otto Signature sticks which are super light and , unfortunately thin, and i go through them like crazy! what does anybody suggest for a light but durable stick? Thanks!
