Home of Drums at Musikmesse 2020

The international drumming scene has a new meeting place: the ‘Home of Drums’ will be celebrating its launch at the Frankfurt Fair and Exhibition Centre on Musikmesse’s public open days (3 and 4 April 2020). The event combines product demonstrations by top brands, knowledge transfer and performances by international artists. The presence of the first artists to sign up has already been confirmed. They will be there to perform live on some of the drum sets and to pass on their expertise to the drumming community at large – both at the show and on the accompanying online platform, www.homeofdrums.com.

Developing Melodic Language on the Drums

The purpose of this book, by Wayne Salzmann, is to give you the necessary tools to develop an authentic musical language on the drum set based on melodic content. The exercises and concepts provided here are designed to inspire creativity and challenge you to reach new levels of awareness and musical ability. Focusing on the melodic themes and phrases keeps the exercises rooted in a musical context rather than focusing only on independence or technical exercises. Using themes and melodies to develop strategies for comping and soloing helps to connect to the phrasing, form, and foundation of the music.

Gretsch Brooklyn Micro Drum Set

Gretsch ha ristretto il suo famoso drum set Brooklyn, ampiamente aprezzato dai batteristi, per creare il nuovo Brooklyn Micro con un ingombro ridotto ed una suonabilità invariata.

Gretsch ha configurato il Micro Brooklyn Drumset a 4 pezzi per piccoli spazi, studi e piccoli luoghi dove potersi esercitare. È ovvio che qualsiasi batterista di bassa statura troverà questo set molto comodo, ma anche per i più alti il kit non è per nulla scomodo.
