Many musicians have experienced problems with relaxing while playing, most while on stage performing.  It could be a confidence issue or just that you are so wired when playing that the rest of the band have to keep telling you to slow down.

There are many advantages and disadvantages to a relaxed drummer. Some say that a more relaxed drummer does not have the motivation to practice hard enough and will not make them a good drummer.

    Better to have some adrenalin pumping than none. At my last gig I was so relaxed that I forgot very well rehearsed fills and had to bluff my way through certain tracks.

    Ive forgotten whole sections to, and had to get the band to go around again until it clicks in, and these are tracks we have written and played hundreds of times.

    that I’m not sure if they are sturdy egonuh to be used as performance drums. There do have some weaknesses. They are sturdy egonuh for sane use, but if someone plans on abusing them I don’t think they would take too much punishment. Overall though, I am very pleasantly surprised with the quality of the hardware and the drums themselves. They are much better than I had expected for the price. I tuned them to their shells. In other words, I took the empty shells, hung them free, and used the kick drum beater to rap on them and recorded the tones they made. Then I placed the drum heads on and tuned those to the same pitch. This was a procedure that I learned from a drum manufacturer. This method of tuning worked very well with these drums and I am very well pleased with their sound, timber and pitch. For someone just starting out on the drums, these drums are great!By the way, they sound great, and they aren’t that flimsy. So they can be used as performance drums. They just aren’t going to stand up to neglect and abuse. If they are treated as a musical instrument they should be just fine.

      Review by Teri for Rating: Very impressed with the drum set. It comes daelssembisd, but has a very informative website that helps with setting it up. It looks stunning and has a gloss finish that gives it a nice touch.
