Welcome to Drummer Talk #170 where we talk about some of our best and worst gig experiences! In news, we talk about yet another drummer with his own coffee, the K Zildjian scholarship, DW’s new airlift system, and we pay tribute to the late, great Levon Helm. Did we mention that Jeff Bowders is the drummer of the week?!
We uncover the tangled history between the world’s two largest cymbal makers: Zildjian and Sabian, complete with an interview with Andy Ziljdian! The double stroke roll is the rudiment of the week, Manu Katché is the drummer of the week, and we talk about Roland’s new gear in the news. Oh, and Carter is ENGAGED!! Show Notes
Proving that the Memphis Drum Shop is a top notch and high caliber establishment, a couple of the drumming community’s up and coming players dropped by recently and showcased some of their talent. Ronald Bruner Jr. (Stanley Clark) and Jason McGerr (Death Cab For Cutie) both sat down at the kit in MDS’s cymbal vault (which houses the largest Zildjian collection in the world outside of the Zildjian factory itself) and gave viewers a tiny showcase.
It’s interesting to see the difference in styles between the two guys. Ronald is very flashy and all about the speed while Jason is very methodical and has a more calm, cool, and collected vibe. Love both of their playing.
