We had the pleasure of hosting Flo Mounier from the metal band Cryptopsy. Flo is an incredible drummer with a passion for education. In this lesson, he talked about five different tips to improve your metal drumming!

Flo also demonstrated a few things with the new Roland TM-2, which allows him to change his bass drum and snare sound from song to song. If you’re looking to get into the wonderful world of triggering, definitely consider the Roland TM-2.

Thanks to Roland Canada for helping us set up this awesome lesson!

Flo plays Pearl Drums, Roland V-Drums & Electronics, Evans Drumheads, Vic Firth Drumsticks, Shure Microphones, and Sabian Cymbals.

    Fantastic lesson and thanks for sharing some exercises you can do away from the kit to build up your legs. Those tempos and double bass runs are insane! I have a Roland spd6 to add big drum sounds and a pedal to trigger a tambourine or cow bell along with my snare hits. Again awesome drumeo vid!
