Check this out! A new FREE APPLE APP from Ludwig that will help us be better drummers no matter where we are or what we are doing.
Improve your time. Start the tune at the right tempo every time. Test your "inner" metronome. All this is possible without spending any cash or carrying another piece of hardware with you to your gig.
What a great practice tool:
Choose from 9 time signatures. Perfect for working on my Joe Morello "Take 5 " solo.
Do you really know how fast 120 bpm is? Check your accuracy of your internal clock with "Tap Tempo" feature.
So what IS the appropriate tempo when the music calls for "ALLEGRETTO"? This app will tell you the correct musical term for the tempo that you are choosing. ( I sure could have used that in my college music classes.)

The snare drum is the most important drum on your kit. No drum is more personal or identifiable to a drummers sound. No drum drives a band, an army, or a dancer, nor defines the “groove “ that moves the listener like the snare drum. There is no drum that shows off a drummers hands or the hours of dedication invested to master technique and musicianship like the snare drum. And there is no such thing as "owning too many snare drums!"
So how many do you have? Do you own a Ludwig? The Ludwig Family of Snare Drums are known as the ‘must have’ working drummer’s drum. Metal or Wood, the Ludwig Snare drums feel great, sound great and always evokes an emotional response from everyone who plays them. Since 1911, the Ludwig snare drum has been the drum that all others have been measured against. Ludwig snare drums are coveted,collected and continuously regarded as the the #1 drum in a drummers toolkit.
This beautiful kit was made for the 2010 Ludwig Catalog to the specifications requested by Professional Drum Shop of Hollywood and is a featured Ludwig kit in the store.
