Drummer Talk

Reviews For Drummer Talk

I must say I have gone back as far as possible and listen to every episode before I wrote a review. Dave is spot on and a great host of this podcast. His drum knowledge is great and the addition of Troy brings a business aspect that all musicians can benefit from. Keep up the great work and can't wait to hear the next episode.
I recently found drummer talk and after listening to the most recent episode with Efrain Toro, I am hooked. This is a great podcast for keeping up with drumming news and listening to interviews with great drummers. If you are a percussionist, you can't pass this one up.
This is truly a great podcast as it has longevity, substance and is simply, fun to listen to. It's been around for a long time now (184 + shows.) Each edition is usually more than an hour in length and it's archives are fantastic. Dave Kropf is a great host, he is knowledgeable and easy to listen to and has great co-hosts always joining him. We miss Carter Baldwin but Tony Dares is a fantastic addition. Too bad he's Canadian, but he's a perfect next to Dave Kropf.
Drummer Talk is truly a blessing. It has been with me since high school and really helped me to become exposed to diffrent facets of the drumming universe I wouldn't be exposed to otherwise. The aura Dave Kropf (the host) creates is one of freindship and family while at the same time being informative and funny. He has a servants heart and really wants to give back and improve the drumming community. With a slew of guests who fill out Dave's already impressive knowledge its wrong not to listen to drummer talk. Everything from the best gig car to hybrid rudaments and cruise gigs are topics, and the cast members are always open to the newest ideas. Drummer talk has gotten me through some drumming dry spells, and helped me grow and rethink the way I view our insturment numerous times. Listen to Drummer Talk
When I saw there was a podcast about drums and the business of drums I was very excited. Two of my favorite things together awesome. I listened to 2 shows and I couldn't take it anymore. These guys are boring and try to hard to be funny when they are not.
I've been playing drums for about a year, and have listened to the last half-dozen episodes of this podcast. I highly recommend it - it's fun, informative, and entertaining. I've been learning about different drummers and techniques I would not have otherwise, and enjoy the lengthy clips they play (especially for the Drummer of the Week). It basically feels like you're hanging out with some other drummers at the Memphis Drum Shop for an hour, which is totally cool. Keep it up, guys!
I couldn't see giving these guys anything less than 5 stars. thanks Dave and Carter for your weekly contributions to the drumming community. thanks! marshman
This is the very best podcast because everyone on the show is hilarious yet they still help out with drumming questions and info that's fun to hear. i am definatly jealous and i wish i could be in a show like it. Great work guys and keep the shows coming!!!
Awesome show! I am officially hooked. It's like hanging out with drummer buddies and shooting the breeze.
This podcast put me right to sleep.
This is easily the best drumming podcast on the web. It's informal feel is almost as good as sitting around with your drumming friends shooting the breeze about your shared passion. It's also chock full of good tips, news and equipment reviews with helpful links to everything available on their website.
This is one of the podcasts I absolutely listen to when it is downloaded. As a drummer for over 25 years, it keeps me up to date on new happenings, people, equipment, etc. I love the banter between the guys even though it takes up time. I feel like I'm just hangin' with a bunch of drummer dudes like I used to in High School and college, except maybe slightly less altered.
Dave and company bring lots of energy and fun to the drumming community. They have weekly features such as news, rudiment of the week , feature artist...etc. I listen to them while doing my weekly routine at work or traveling to gigs and they are great company. The cast will also talk about subjects that are not related to drumming but go a long way in getting to know the cast. I really like this aspect of the show because in my opinion good character development is vital to making a connection with the audience. The only modification that I would make is to have Dave do more drum set playing, I really learned a lot from that segment. -Rocco
If you dont have anything good to say then shut ur freakin mouth i cant stand people that do what you do, i dont if you noticed but u are the only bad review on there maybe listen for more than eight minutes and plus the beauty of a podcast is u can fast forward. To finish this off i think maybe u should listen to a whole episode before open ur big dumb mouth to write a review.
This is another one of those podcasts that takes forever to get into the ostensible subject matter. On trying it for the first time, I had to sit through someone talking about their new hobby, the harmonica, which is of no interest to me. We even had to hear his (pretty good) harmonica solo played back twice. Then they started talking about fantasy football, for heaven's sakes, which is even less interesting. After eight minutes of this, I gave up. If I want to sit around and talk about random subjects I can do this with my own friends. I wish more podcasters realized that inside jokes, kibbitzing among buddies you don't know and extended off-topic forays just bore people, especially new listeners. I'll check back in in a few weeks and see if they've gained focus on drumming.
This is a very good podcast for drummers to listen to. Not only does it have a new rudiment and topic every week, but it also has a new drummer every week with new music and drum solos. This podcast has already helped me, and I haven't even heard many episodes of it.
There truly is not a cooler podcast in all of Itunes than this one. The magic of this podcast comes from the informative randomness of the show's cast. A great listen for everyone (G rated) even people that can't understand English!
Check this podcast out. Just a buncha drummers talking about drum stuff in a reasonably structured manner. Great Audio quality and subject matter quality. Drums and talking: Good stuff.
This is an interesting and fun take on drumming. The program is well produced and offers great insight into the average drummer's life. Dave seems like a great drum instructor as he spends time giving us and his fellow podcasters background and technical information on whatever the subject is. The program has improved its focus with its second season but still retains the humor and easy-going nature that the host and his friends/students no doubt share in their daily life. Listen for the Pearl Reference reference; it's great for a chuckle!
This is one of my "Must Listen To" Podcasts. Dave and his merry men get together every week and talk about all sorts of stuff related to drums, drummers, and drumming. These guys have an excellent show with cool characters and great chemistry. If you're a drummer, or would like to understand the mind of a drummer then you MUST subscribe to this podcast!
