THE BEST Drums

Three-Year-Old Drummer Boy

Three-Year-Old Drummer Boy

Three-year-old Lyonya Shilovskya was invited to join the stage with a symphony orchestra in Russia to perform a section of Offenbach’s classic Orpheus in the Underworld. We’re still convinced he’s an adult in a little kid costume.

Bass Drum Smoke Rings

Bass Drum Smoke Rings

Cigarette smoking may be bad for your health, but we’re pretty sure it’s okay to blow smoke rings if you’re filling a bass drum with fog, instead of your lungs with carcinogens. We’re surprised this isn’t already a staple at rock concerts.

Intro to Drums

Intro to Drums

CDZA continues their music education series, today schooling us the basics elements of the drum kit, different rhythmic styles and on classic drum riffs, courtesy of talented percussionist Allan Mednard.

Grandma Rocks the Skins

Grandma Rocks the Skins

While music store performances aren’t always the best, you’ve got to hand it to this little old lady who stopped by La Crosse, Wisconsin’s Coalition Drum Shop to turn in an impromptu performance. (Thanks Aaron!)

Top Secret Drum Corps

Turns out precision and versatility aren’t just for Swiss Army knives. The Top Secret Drum Corps out of the historical drumming city of Basel, Switzerland put on an astounding show at the 2012 Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo.

Tummy Talk Drum Solo

Tummy Talk Drum Solo

How did the folks at Sqwak elevate the idea of a drum solo to a strange and admirable new level in only a minute and a half, using just 1 tremendous belly and 3 percussionists to create a phat beat?

Drumming My Way

Drumming My Way

See that cute girl? While the vocalist in this performance of My Way isn’t too bad on the eyes, she’s quickly upstaged by the drummer and his stick-spinning antics. And his hair. (Thanks Dan!)

Kid Loves Foo Fighters

Kid Loves Foo Fighters

We’re not only impressed with six-year-old Jaxon Smith’s self-taught drumming abilities, but his taste in music is impeccable, as he jams along with Foo Fighters’ Pretender.

To Protect and Shred

To Protect and Shred

We don’t blame these guys for initially being afraid when a cop pulled up to their campsite. Luckily the only things he was interested in busting were jams. Canada wins again. Minus that guy at 1:07.

Drumming Without Hands

Drumming Without Hands

We all know that Def Leppard’s Rick Allen plays drums with a single arm, but he’s got nothing on Cornel Munn, who has overcome adversity to play the drums without any hands at all.

Tiny Drum Solo

Tiny Drum Solo

While anyone can play tiny drums with a mobile app these days, there’s something that just seems inherently more impressive about a person who can play tiny physical drums with mini drumsticks.

Fast Finger Drumming

Fast Finger Drumming

“Finger-drumming phenomenon” Jeremy Ellis works his blistering-fast digits across the 16 pads of the Maschine Mikro, a new computer-based system for cranking out electronic grooves.

With a single drum and four drumsticks, Wayne Oien takes snare drumming to new heights with this award-winning solo performance. Our ears are still ringing, but it was worth it.

Norwegian Street Drummer

Drummer Baard Kolstad can really kick out the jams without need for any additional musical accompaniment. Listen as he rips up a 7 minute rhythm solo on the streets of Norway.

Objective Rhythm

Objective Rhythm

We are digging the beats coming down and the flow of the film here in Objective Rhythm, a stop motion animation video about a magical drumstick, from 3rd year student Ross Holdstock. (Thanks Adam!)

Omega GM-1 System

Make Rock Band and Guitar Hero sessions more realistic with Omega’s GM-1 System, which hooks up to a real drum set via a MIDI or accessory cable; it also includes 2-3 cymbal triggers.

Kudos to David Osborne for being ultra efficient: his traveling drum kit serves as both his ride and his gig, with a bicycle that can be transformed into a drumset in only 20 minutes.
