  2. Hugo Ribeiro says:

    DAAANG bro, that SQ2 sounds fantastic!! SONOR sure makes great drums! cheers

  3. TheJoeLaw says:

    I want to see a video where you actually use every drum and “cymbal” on
    your kit.

  4. JoshMillerDrum says:

    Cool shirt!

  5. J.W. Anderson says:

    Someones been listening to Meshuggah and Pantera

  6. Greg Patterson says:

    I didn’t care for the steel snare in your snare drum video demo’s. But I
    think it sounds great with the Hybrid!

  7. TheSaneMe says:

    I really that HIGH attact of this snare batter !!!! That why it is the most
    expensive snare batter . . . .

  8. Ryan Halsey says:

    @bindingflame1 I think they are clear heads, its just the reflection that
    makes them look black

    aaron i remember asking you a few questions about drum moduels and im stuck
    on my cubas 5….. if i make a video of my drum set up and where im stuck
    at could you help me out??? the problem i have is that when i go to set up
    different tracks on my cubase it doesnt let me:(… let me know bud

  10. Henri Kuusk says:

    sounds like an out of tune shit 😉 Sorry about that 😀 maybe that’s just me

  11. bandit0 says:

    Good foot work, and I really dig the downtuned snare sound…That fat juicy
    tone that snares had in the 80s for arena rock…awesome. I love snare
    tones like that…I try to make my snare sound as 80s as possible…perhaps
    its just a phase!

  12. eiash jj says:

    how do you mix your drums to sound so good?

  13. [..YouTube..] @cahslundglass That’s a good call! There was a blast or two in the tracking for this, but I had to cut some stuff so it didn’t end up stupid long. Maybe in one of the upcoming vids!

  14. [..YouTube..] @HugoRibeiroDotCom Thanks dude! Yeah man, I LOVE my SQ2’s 😀

  15. aaronedgardrum says:

    @HugoRibeiroDotCom Thanks dude! Yeah man, I LOVE my SQ2’s 😀

  16. [..YouTube..] @TheJoeLaw haha it’s set up for tons of different options so I don’t have to keep changing or adding stuff for different ideas. I’m sure I could make that happen though! Most of my videos are lessons and whatever, teaching people how to play something where you need a 13 piece kit with a ton of cymbals probably isn’t the best idea since 99.9% of people don’t play a kit like that 😛

    Maybe I’ll do a video where I just play though

  17. [..YouTube..] @JoshMillerDrum Thanks dude!

  18. [..YouTube..] @Rougarou13 Not so much Pantera, but Meshuggah, hell yeah! I used to love Pantera in high school though 😀

  19. [..YouTube..] Not so much Pantera, but Meshuggah, hell yeah! I used to love Pantera in high school though 😀

  21. [..YouTube..] @SONORSQ2guy Cool man! I dig it with the hybrid too 😀 Although I think I still prefer it with a G1

  36. [..YouTube..] Hell yeah it will!

  37. [..YouTube..] @SlipperySlopeDrummer That’s all the rage now a days man, if your snare doesn’t sound like you’re hitting a log of poop then you just aren’t cool 😀

  63. [..YouTube..] It’s so good! 😀

  64. aaronedgardrum says:

    @TheSaneMe It’s so good! 😀

  65. [..YouTube..] That head tuned high would sound AMAZING for funk! 🙂 I really need to pick one up once i get a new steel snare drum.

  68. [..YouTube..] @MexicanJumpingLlama Do it!! You totally won’t regret it, plus you’ll pretty much never have to replace it 😛

  69. [..YouTube..] Do it!! You totally won’t regret it, plus you’ll pretty much never have to replace it 😛

  70. [..YouTube..] is that snare a birch snare?

  71. [..YouTube..] No sir, it’s steel. 🙂

  72. mburton12 says:

    [..YouTube..] Do you have ANY “normal” cymbals?

  73. [..YouTube..] haha! Well I’m a full Hammerax endorser, so I do have some of what they would consider “normal”… but they’re still not really that normal lmao.

    I’m going to the factory in two weeks for a tour, some videos and to raid their prototype vault. I actually plan on grabbing a more traditional set of cymbals while I’m down there. Some of the stuff I’ve been doing lately, as much as it’s not necessarily “my” sound, requires it. 🙂

  74. Ankylophobia says:

    [..YouTube..] have you tried out the Evans Strata 1000? I had to pick one up after Dave McKeague posted a video with it, and I’ve fallen in love. I got the staccato version on my birch snare, ridiculous pop.

  75. [..YouTube..] Oh man, I haven’t tried that one! I’m gonna have to 😀

  76. aaronedgardrum says:

    Oh man, I haven’t tried that one! I’m gonna have to 😀

  77. Ankylophobia says:

    [..YouTube..] let me know how it goes! it might not be for everyone, just because it’s a thinner head, but I would recommend the snare side Orchestral 300 for everyone.

  78. Ankylophobia says:

    let me know how it goes! it might not be for everyone, just because it’s a thinner head, but I would recommend the snare side Orchestral 300 for everyone.

  79. [..YouTube..] yeah man! I’ll for sure have to grab one in my next order 😀 How would it compare to a G1? Just so I can have an idea of what I want to put it on.

  80. aaronedgardrum says:

    yeah man! I’ll for sure have to grab one in my next order 😀 How would it compare to a G1? Just so I can have an idea of what I want to put it on.

  81. Ankylophobia says:

    [..YouTube..] it’s a good deal darker, has a LOT more body to it. I have the staccato version with the perimeter flap, and I think it’s a little too dry. If I was going to make a suggestion, I would say put it on the 14×6 Delite. I think the slightly thinner shell would do the head wonders.

  83. [..YouTube..] hahaha I sold that drum last week! BUT I really like how you described it. I’ve got some thinking to do 😉

  85. Ankylophobia says:

    [..YouTube..] WHAT ARE THE ODDS. Well either way, I would say definitely a wood shell. It’s a tone MONSTER, especially combined with the Orchestral 300.

  89. whiplash0009 says:

    [..YouTube..] why such a set its all wierd looking….are u in like a black metal band?

  90. whiplash0009 says:

    why such a set its all wierd looking….are u in like a black metal band?

  91. [..YouTube..] haha no. I’ve just never liked things that are normal. Strangeness especially in music is what gets me going. Since I play music full time for a living, I can afford to have my kit as strange as I want for whatever reason I feel like heh 😛 Most of the time I play something WAY different and smaller than this.

  99. aaronedgardrum says:

    Awesome! You’re going to love it 🙂

  100. [..YouTube..] Why is your drum kit so awesome, I love Sonor but it’s so expensive and those crazy effects cymbals. But more than anything I wish I had your proficiency with polyrhythms.

  107. aaronedgardrum says:

  108. Wackid123 says:

  111. 4lifepaintballa15 says:

    on two different stands? either way that thing is sick

  112. [..YouTube..] No man, laying right on top of each other 😀 24″ HellBell with a 21″ on top AND it’s actually got a 12″ Dustbowl laying on top of that

  113. aaronedgardrum says:

    No man, laying right on top of each other 😀 24″ HellBell with a 21″ on top AND it’s actually got a 12″ Dustbowl laying on top of that

  114. [..YouTube..] i love the dryness of the snare no ping at all!!!

  118. [..YouTube..] so, i see you like hammerax

  119. [..YouTube..] so, i see you like hammerax

  120. hayden griffis says:

    so, i see you like hammerax

  121. [..YouTube..] Yeah man, the head really controls overtones 😀

  122. aaronedgardrum says:

    Yeah man, the head really controls overtones 😀

  123. [..YouTube..] Any time, man 🙂

  124. aaronedgardrum says:

    Any time, man 🙂

  125. [..YouTube..] Just a little bit 😛

  126. aaronedgardrum says:

    Just a little bit 😛

  127. mattlikesdrumming says:

    dude how responsive is this head for you at normal/high tuning? i have it at a normal tuning and it sounds great but it’s felt dead since the day I got. I got used to it a while ago, just wanted to see how it is for you!

  128. joeyjuniorjunior says:

    can you use this head on wood snare drums?

  129. MaxBrilhart says:

    what heads are on your toms?

  130. MaxBrilhart says:

    can you please tell me what that silver colored bell cymbal that you were playing is
    @1:03

  131. aaronedgardrum says:

    Hey man! It definitely has a different feel and you don’t get as much rebound / response from it. I don’t think there’s any way to get around that.

  132. aaronedgardrum says:

    You certainly can, but because of the woven fibres I’d honestly be concerned about the bearing edge. For me, it’ll only ever go on metal drums. 🙂

  133. aaronedgardrum says:

    In this video G2 clear top, G1 clear bottom. : )

  134. aaronedgardrum says:

    Those were Hammerax Nice Bells 🙂 All four of the sizes

  135. MaxBrilhart says:

    i meant that silver slab of metal you hit right after the nice bells to the left of the boomywang

  136. AquaAnim says:

    Aaron, where is your secret hatch to get out from behind the kit, or do you just sleep behind it? Maybe on it?

  137. aaronedgardrum says:

    Bottom left of the cam where it’s cut off, there’s plenty of space to get in and out lol

  138. AquaAnim says:

    Awwww cmon, i expected some kind of acrobatic move. I’ll just have to settle with what ya tell me 😛

  139. aaronedgardrum says:

    K, I didn’t want to admit it, but it’s hardcore parkour. That’s the only way. 😛

  140. AquaAnim says:

    I’ll accept that with much less adversity 😛

  141. charly soto martinez says:

    is this the hybrid coated or just the hybrid?
    is just that i want to buy one but i got confused when i saw them online and found out that there where 2 of them

  142. jordy babcock says:

    very nice playing and great sound quality man! love your video

  143. kikme778 says:

    fuckin sick set up man. Hammerax are the future

  144. crazytrain58 says:

    HOLY DRUMSET BATMAN! That is the most bad ass drum set I’ve seen with those weird ass cymbals… Kinda looks like it would be in some fancy garden though.

  145. fitness4gains says:

    What is the cost?

  146. nauvalfakhri says:

    that cymbals

  147. aaronedgardrum says:

    lol!

  148. aaronedgardrum says:

    Hey! Sorry for the super late reply, it’s just the regular Hybrid. The Hybrid coated is white and looks almost like a regular head. 🙂

  149. aaronedgardrum says:

    Rad, thanks!! 🙂

  150. Jake Shields says:

    Sold

  151. Jonza Raynor says:

    u like a big kit im guessing, its very terry bozzio looking, great playing man

  152. MultiAskHole says:

    Your cymbals are retarded

  153. aaronedgardrum says:

    I think that company is going out of business. Either way, I left them in November and am a Sabian endorser now. 🙂

    If you’re curious, one of the most recent videos I uploaded is a cymbal setup video with the new gear.

  154. aaronedgardrum says:

    (Part 2) it was three videos ago : (YouTube dot com) /watch?v=yrXgNDkOyms

  155. zombieman1221 says:

    It’s whatever sound he wants. If he likes them… they are the most beautiful sounding cymbals in the world.

  156. robertomerlodrum says:

    strange cymbal. but sound very BEATIFUL!! (the snare to)

  157. Jaden McCallum says:

    None of these people here even know this is supposed to be a marching snare
    head, and that’s why it’s dry, articulate, and durable…

  158. robertomerlodrum says:

    this snare drum head are good for metal? (and all of genre?) sincerely i
    have a remo drum head but i don’t like 🙁

  159. Jorden Garberson says:

    Great video. Definitely just made me confirm my order for on amazon. Should
    be here tomorrow. Can’t wait to fuck with it at band practice. Question.
    What kind of cymbals are those? I’ve never seen anything like them.
