New Vadrum Drumsticks: V1 and V2
Posted date: February 28, 2014
By popular demand the Vadrum Signature Drumsticks are back in two brand-new versions, more durable and performance oriented: ladies and gentlemen, here comes the V1 and V2!
V1 is the most versatile model, with diameter and weight that corresponds to the classic 5A, while V2 is ideally placed between a 5A and 5B, and is recommended in situations that require more power and control without being heavy or too thick!
Both models are available now exclusively on Vadrum Store...have fun and see you soon! :-D
Vadrum vs V-Drums: Billie Jean
Posted date: February 26, 2014
It was inevitable, and so here's the first video of Vadrum on V-Drums! But rather than "limit" myself playing just the electronic drums, I wanted to take advantage of all the potentialities of the instrument (TD-30KV) that, alongside an SPD-SX sampler and two Trigger Pads, allowed me to play the bass, keyboards, trumpet, etc...everything simultaneously and strictly in real-time without the use of any sequence (vocals apart) or external hardware!
Say no more and I wish you a good view of my "Billie Jean" by Michael Jackson in a veeery special version :-)
Oh, and thanks to Mario Verzin for vocals, to Salvo P. for the guitar samples and to Roland Italy with which officially starts a great collaboration...enjoy! :-D

Drum Intro Medley
Posted date: July 02, 2013
What do Rihanna and Megadeth have in common, besides having extravagant hairstyles and to have sold millions of copies around the world?
Simply, at least one of their songs starts with a drum intro! This time I made a medley that includes 50 of the most popular drum intros of the last 50 years and, having fun with numbers, I enclosed in a 5 minutes and 50 seconds video :)
I tried to play all the intros as faithful as possible to the original versions, respecting the BPMs and, in some cases, recreating the audio effects of the studio recordings. Some intros have been shortened and, where necessary, I added some percussions, voices (?!?) and...also something else! Enjoy it my dear! ^_^ (Click here for the Drum Intro List)
