Roadburn 2013 Master Class With Dream Death Drummer Mike Smail

Roadburn 2013 - Mike Smail

This year, Roadburn Festival is pleased to present master classes and performance clinics for the first time. It seems like a great opportunity to give those of you attending the festival, many of whom are in bands or enjoy playing music on your own, and some of the folks on the bill an opportunity to meet and learn from each other.

The master classes and performance clinics will be held at Hall of Fame, which is an easy 10-minute walk from the 013 venue.

On Saturday, April 20th, Dream Death drummer Mike Smail will talk about getting the most out of your gear with what you have. Playing-wise, Mike has been involved in music for a total of 29 years.  He has also been managing a drum store for 16 years, and started his own custom drum operation five years ago. During the master class, Mike will cover everything from tuning to drum heads, shells, and bearing edges, as well as cymbals. High-end versus low-end equipment will be discussed, too!

Getting The Most Out Of Your Gear With What You Have is available for Roadburn ticket holders (no additional fee) and will be held between 3:00pm and 4:00pm at the Hall of Fame in Tilburg, Holland.
