In this special eightieth episode, Mike and Mike tackle a pile of listener questions that cover a wide range of topics, from snare drum recommendations to stick grip suggestions, transitioning from marching band to drumset, breaking through barriers, and more. They also answer a few audio questions on using a click track live, vertical versus horizontal time concepts, and what to look for when purchasing a new drumset. Up for review is Mike Johnston’s new A&F 3×13 Rude Boy raw-brass snare.
