    how do you get that killer kick sound ?

  2. Jonny 5ive on September 12, 2022 at 3:11 am

    The Evans torque key is killer, I’ve used this product for years, it works very very well.

  3. Milan Genot on September 12, 2022 at 3:11 am

    Now i got cool Gift Ideas for my Friend👍Thank You

  4. Jay marc Marquez on September 12, 2022 at 3:12 am

    I’m gonna surprise myself with that low boy wood beaters. Like surprise self !!

  5. Footsoljier on September 12, 2022 at 3:13 am

    I actually use Ted Reed’s Progressive Steps to Syncopation for the Modern Drummer

  6. The Guy With The Face on September 12, 2022 at 3:15 am

    My favourite sticks are the firegrain rebounds from promark. If you get the chance, y’all should give them a shot.

  7. Duccio Leoncini on September 12, 2022 at 3:16 am

    I didn’t know Sebastian Vettel could play drumes

  8. johnbmx4christ on September 12, 2022 at 3:16 am

    I would never recommend groove juice. It takes off whatever coating is on there and wipes the logos and everything right off. If you don’t recoat them right away after groove juicing them, they like tarnish super fast.

  9. ShartimusPrime on September 12, 2022 at 3:18 am

    At first I thought he was holding action figures in the thumbnail . . . darn.

  10. nik_in_the_box ́s Drum Channel on September 12, 2022 at 3:19 am

    lot of stuff dude…

  11. Strapping Young Ladam on September 12, 2022 at 3:20 am

    I live on a townhouse complex and my drums are in the basement. For Christmas this year I got a set of Arborea Mute Cymbals, which are similar to Sabian Quiet tone but more affordable. My wife bought me a brand new throne to replace the cheap one I bought over 10 years ago as a teen. Definitely great presents.

  12. Ashley Green on September 12, 2022 at 3:21 am

    Top suggestions;
    Big Fat Snare
    & the Yamaha EAD.
    All utterly invaluable products & drumming extras I’ll probably keep using well into the next decade.
    Amazing pieces of equipment & companies worth their weight in gold 🙏

  13. darkdancer72 on September 12, 2022 at 3:22 am

    Nice! You should do the first Drum QVC-TV 🙂

  14. Rockem on September 12, 2022 at 3:24 am

    Un peut de groove juice sur mon racktom please

  15. ajbambino on September 12, 2022 at 3:27 am

    Good call with the snare weights and also big fat snare drum.

    I usually use a old head and put it on top, but it always falls off or breaks – those are much better and stick to the head more. The number of times I’ll do a rimshot alone with the wallet and it flys off and I lost credit cards……no bueno!

  16. Rigo Salazar on September 12, 2022 at 3:27 am

    You should consider inviting a Mexican/Hispanic drummer. Drumming Hispanic music like norteñas,cumbias, quebraditas, Huapangos. This is all a style of drumming for Hispanic music and with its own unique grooves and rhythms.

  17. GhostRider2224 on September 12, 2022 at 3:28 am

    Nobody, absolutely nobody:
    Drummers: when equipment is used it gets dusty

  18. AVENTADOR KING10 on September 12, 2022 at 3:28 am

    I haven’t gotten new drum heads in 3 years and who knows how long before I got those 2ND hand drums XD

  19. ajbambino on September 12, 2022 at 3:28 am

    @Drumeo – one of the things I never heard anyone mention is actually Cymbags – they’re make protective sleeves for cymbals. That, and actually they’re clear reusable cymbal dampeners are legit the greatest sound reducers for a cymbal that I’ve ever come across and swear by it.

    It’s a small mom and pop shop but more than fair prices and legit a sleeper cell product that I can’t recommend enough!

  20. Jonny 5ive on September 12, 2022 at 3:30 am

    I heard no change in tone/muffle with the clip on mufflers

  21. Jonny 5ive on September 12, 2022 at 3:30 am

    Wanna never break a cymbal ever again.
    Go get Aquarian simple springs.

  22. Blaze on September 12, 2022 at 3:31 am

    What song was Todd playing to here when showcasing the danmar metal kick?

  23. akridge on September 12, 2022 at 3:33 am

    Opens gift sighs and thinks "great more drum crap I don’t need". OMG 50 dollar drum key. I don’t even know what to say. I heat up a coffee can and melt my bass drum holes in.

  24. The Numatic King on September 12, 2022 at 3:34 am

    If you want to get a good snare sound just get a T-shirt over your snare drum and it will sound better

  25. Daniel Ngo. on September 12, 2022 at 3:34 am

    Man there’s so much I don’t know

  26. Alden Mahoney on September 12, 2022 at 3:35 am

    Best gift: new 10 piece drum set with cymbals too

  27. LimboPimp on September 12, 2022 at 3:36 am

    I’m an Mapex,Gibraltar,Mienl,Vic firth,evans kinda guy

  29. Haris Tola on September 12, 2022 at 3:40 am

    Alhamdulillah, ada kemanisan dc2.

    Mantiaeppp 👍

  30. Robert Duley on September 12, 2022 at 3:42 am

    Nice a Dave Weckel mention

  31. Bill Wigmore on September 12, 2022 at 3:44 am

    I’d most recommend the Evans Hybrid snare head, as it’s almost literally bullet-proof. ($50 USD) The damn things last an obscenely long time under the most vicious play and abuse.

  32. Makros the Black on September 12, 2022 at 3:46 am

    That EAD sounds like a whole lot of awesome! :O

  33. Gilbert Zilla on September 12, 2022 at 3:46 am

    All i want for Christmas is a double pedal

  34. Fábio Dias on September 12, 2022 at 3:49 am

    Love this video. As someone who’s coming back to drumming after a 10 year break, this was super helpful 🙂

  35. Ba on September 12, 2022 at 3:49 am

    9:40 😂😂😂

  36. orchestra Beaters on September 12, 2022 at 3:50 am

    Things required by a drummer while going for a gig and during gig
    Sticks in a stick bag
    Mobile holder
    Wallet holder
    Drum key
    Hardware like extra tention rod,lug, a beater,device kwik, moon gel,duct tape ,damper sponge, screw driver ,blade allen key (alanki) extra snare head,cymbal felts,notation stand

  37. Music Mode on September 12, 2022 at 3:50 am

    another good gift is a new drum set or maybe even a neil peart 2112 replica drumset with the gold would be cool.

  38. WOKE_DRUMS by TESSA on September 12, 2022 at 3:50 am

    My favorite part is when he threw him the drum case and it hit the cymbal.
    I use protection racket cases

  39. Eli Pender Drums on September 12, 2022 at 3:52 am

    8:27. I dont think the torque key is $50…😂

  40. MERRY CHRISTMAS on September 12, 2022 at 3:53 am

    What snare drum do you get for beginners?

  41. Fabi Firen on September 12, 2022 at 3:54 am

    I saw some metal drummer use some sort of tape/band around their drumsticks (i guess, so it doesn’t slipp away). Does anyone knows where i can get them?

  42. Collecting Classics on September 12, 2022 at 3:55 am

    Drumeo why didn’t you talk about the drum wallet today’s best drum damnpner on the market. definitely do a video on em please and Remember to get yours today THE DRUM WALLET

  43. Till Müller on September 12, 2022 at 3:56 am

    I absolutly disagree with your first choice the Drum Stick as a Gift. Please never never buy without asking (like you mention to google) Drum Sticks. The Drum Stick is one of the most specific tools for each Drummer. And with that amount of possibilities on the market, its almost a 100 percent chance to buy the wrong one.

  44. AidenJP on September 12, 2022 at 3:57 am

    hi jared

  45. Manx Keys on September 12, 2022 at 3:58 am

    You missed the drumeo in-ear monitor. I just subbed to drumeo edge and you sent the book and the in ear monitor for free! Thanks! Love Drumeo from Hong Kong!

  46. Lil Skrimp on September 12, 2022 at 3:59 am

    And then there’s us with electric drums and none of these apply

  47. Retro Boy on September 12, 2022 at 4:00 am

    i think that guy is the "da vinki" one

  48. Riley N on September 12, 2022 at 4:01 am

    Kick block literally saved my life. Legit saved my kit

  49. Menzer Roku on September 12, 2022 at 4:03 am

    Best gift? Metronome

  50. Jeremy Stig on September 12, 2022 at 4:07 am
