    Hello!

    I am excited to become a part of this community for drummers! I have spent the last several years reading and participating on Pearl Drummer's Forum. I recently heard about this forum and it sounded like a place I would like to spend some time learning, sharing and collaborating. Let me introduce myself. My name is Andrew Davies and I live in the Dallas, Tx area. I recently left my job as a full time teacher to pursue my dreams of drumming full time. Currently, I am teaching drum lessons and tutoring on the side, while I further develop my craft and expand my network. I know "making it big" is a long shot, so just paying the bills while doing what I love would be just fine with me!

    Here is my website: www.daviesdrums.com
    and my Youtube Channel: www.youtube.com/drummeraad

    Now for what you really came here to see... my drums! I'm looking forward to participating in this community.

    Very nice! I love your Sonors, and I play Byzance as well... Those are some really nice cymbals. Love the pure rides!

    Sweet! I still think that Sonor makes the best of the best drums, and the Delites had the best look with those lugs. Intense playing!
