    Recording the New Album!

    Started recording my second album on Monday! :) It's sounding so so awesome, really heavy and clean. Well impressed :D I'm using a nutty hybrid kit, 22" Oak Custom Kick, 10/12/16 DW Collectors Toms, and a beautiful Sonor 14x8 Bubinga beast snare. Sounds amazing though :) <object width="425"...

    What breaks pedal springs?

    What can lead to springs snapping on bass pedals? I don't really see how something like this can be put down to technique.

    It is absolutely pissing it down over here, like someone's throwing pebbles at my skylight. And now we're getting thunder and lightning too! I love storms :D (haha the moment I wrote that it started raining even harder, I think the storm loves me too!)

I'm finding that beginning with speed works quite well for me, and I can then progress on to louder volumes, though I find consistence at slower speeds and my usual...
