    • Hey Wattup67,

      My advice would be to find some drummers that inspires you, to buy a small drum set, even a cheap on, you can even start drumming on you legs or a pillow or do some air drumming over a song trying to imitate the drummer, it can help a lot 😉

      Then find a teacher in your area and start your journey 😉

  1. I’m 15 and I study how to play the drums at school but still, I’m not that good at it. Josh Dun inspires me (and you though, I admire your work) but I don’t have any equimpent yet. Do you think that I should start first with the basics like a snare, bass drum and hi hat or what?

    • Yeah, many people with low budget starts with just a snare, hi hat and bass drum, and a crash if you want, then you can buy the toms, ride, etc that arent very used on songs

  2. Hello Adrien! First of all congratulations for everything.
    You’re an inspiration to me, I’ve start learning the drums only recently and you motivate me a lot.
    If you do not mind can I ask what configuration of the Steven Slater 4 do you use to have a sound so incredible in the cover of Heathens? Thank you and congratulations again, keep it up!

  3. Hey Adrien,

    Can you put a link with your complete electronic drumkit? I tried to find all the parts together to buy it myself, but couldn’t find it..
    I really have the idea that your drumkit will work for me!
    Thanks in advance!

  4. Do you favor a certain brand of Drum Stick over another? What about size (subjective I know, but still interested to know basis for your choices).
    Thank you!!

  5. Hi Adrien,

    Love your videos!

    What is the connection between your TD25, TM2 and the extra cymbals? I want to copy this on my TD25 but not sure how 🙁

    Thank you!

  6. Hi Adrien, What software do you use to play and video record the drum score. I see you have drum score live below of some of (DRUMS ONLY) covers. Thanks.

  7. Hey Adrien,

    I like your VAD Set. I got it myself a few month ago and I‘am really happy with it. (See:
    Can you tell me which „China“ and „Splash“ you use with this set and how you install it. (Stand or grabber arm, plugs into TD-27)
    And do you know, if it‘s possible to use the „Bell-Plug“ of the CY-16-RT (a think it has 3 triggers: edge, bow, bell, but no cable for it to plug it into the TD-27) 🙁
    Thx a lot

  8. Hi Adrien I’m from Italy sorry for disturb you , I have a td50 drums. I want ask you a question in your you tube Chanel I heard the Green Day cover basket case that you play with td27 module, I’m really interested to this sound kit, what kind of kit did you use for? is there a similar kit in td50 module? Can I hear other cover on you tube that you play with the td50 module? Is it possible to put the td27 kit in the td 50 module , I love the the 31 kit of td27 tight funk.Thank you

    • You don’t disturb at all. If you want to hear my TD 50 preset, the best thing is to go to the TD 50 VS TD 27 drum module comparison, you will hear the sound ‘drums only” of my preset. This is a great all around preset that will fit most of your needs.

  9. Dear Adrien,

    Just bought a Roland VAD 503 with the TD 27 drum module.
    Iam trying to connect it midi to addictive drums 2.
    But ad2 doesnt have the right midi map for the TD27.
    My hihat wont react as i want it to do.
    Did you experience this too? Any ideas how to fix the problem?
    Ive been working on the mapping in AD2. But everytime AD2 learns something on the hihat, something else drops.
    I believe the biggest problem is the use of the footpedal from my hi hat.
    Hope you can help me.

    Thanks in advance.
    Kind regards

    • Hey Heyme,

      Unfortunately I can’t really help you as I don’t have AD2. But I have had the same issue with all my 3rd part drum software, most of the time they avec designed a special mapping for your drums. Check out on their website maybe or on some AD2 forums.

  10. How do you recommend setting up the TD27 for live performance plus a monitor mix? Can you use the headphone out to feed a powered wedge and divide up the other outputs?

  11. Hi Adrien, today I ordered (& paid by cc) the TD27 presets but did not receive any response by email so probably something went wrong. Can you check for me?
