Drummer Jokes

I got a laugh at some of these drummer jokes. It’s fun to poke fun at ourselves now and then.

Neil Peart Drumset

This is one of the more impressive drumsets I’ve seen in a long time. This is Neil Peart’s drumset in all its glory. What a mish-mash of acoustic drums, electronic drums, mallet percussion, gadgets, and of course gold hardware throughout. He’s a lucky man!

Drum Machines

While we’re on the topic of electronic drums, it’s always been fascinating to me that some instruments have a very long life. Take the SR-16 Drum Machine for example. This baby’s been around for decades it seems. Obviously it serves a very fundamental rhythmic purpose for all musicians, not just drummers. It has a large quantity of natural drum sounds, it’s small and portable, extremely practical with lots of capability and of couse it’s priced right. The SR-16 Drum Machine offers a lot of bang for the buck and will probably continue to be around for a very long time.

Electronic Drums

I’ve noticed more cats playing electronic drums and drumsets these days. It seems that the average drummer has some interest in augmenting their kits with auxilary electronic percussion and/or own an electronic drumkit separate from their main kit. Its obvious by many posts in drum forums that drummers are overall more knowlegable these days about e-kits and electronic options. This is cool to see as e-drums are another world entirely and offer so much to the possibilities of what’s achievable on drums. Some of the better drummers out there are really stretching the imagination and coming up with some neat stuff. Check out this clip by Akira Jimbo and you’ll see what I mean:
