To answer one of the most common questions (What pedal should I use without paying hundreds for a kick trigger?), for the money, I recommend the "Destroyer Pedal", which gives zero double-hits, it's metal, and it's great for using heel-toe with. (Better than my DW5000, actually, due to DW's short footboards.) You can get it at http://www.rockbandpedal.net/ Note: Only the Destroyer-D is compatible with GH:WT.

First documented 5-column (WT drums) FC of Brianstorm on GH5! Thanks again to Scotty (Phenom's brother) for recording and editing the video.
I was told WMG-related things were getting better, so... consider this a test video for whether or not I'll start posting more videos on Youtube again. =\

Info on my Drum Setup: http://rockband.scorehero.com/forum/v...
1. Do you play real drums too?
Yes, I do. I've been playing drums for a little over 5 years now, focusing mainly on trap set, with some limited hand percussion experience as well. Before I learned to play real drums, though, I also played Drummania, a drum simulation game made by Konami and part of the Bemani family of music games. It really got me interested in drums, I highly recommend it if you can find a machine near you.
2. What do you use to play Rock Band? Is your kit modded or something?
Please see the link above entitled "Info on my Drum Setup". For Guitar Hero World Tour, I use the same drum kit, but run it through the WT stock kit's MIDI port.
3. How much did your setup cost?
The Roland TD-6 SX-T that I use goes for around $2000 on Musician's Friend, probably cheaper if you look on ebay or Craig's List.
4. Wow, that's a lot of money. You really spent $2k just to play Rock Band?
Nope, I bought the Roland kit months before Rock Band came out to do some recording and session work. I also badly needed a quieter way to practice drums in my apartment; an acoustic kit with silencers just wasn't cutting it. It was just very good fortune that I already had the kit when people began discovering how to hook up MIDI kits to Rock Band.
5. Ok, but isn't that kind of cheating? (UPDATED)
I suppose everyone will form their own opinions about this subject no matter what, but the official word right now is that it is not cheating. Posts on both ScoreHero and the Rock Band forums have been made about this mod, and both the ScoreHero mods, rockband.com mods, and Harmonix staff have ruled that this type of kit does not invalidate competitive scores. They have, in the past, ruled that any sort of double-bass pedal mod would invalidate such scores. However, since the release of the Guitar Hero: World Tour drum kit, it has become possible to use two stock bass pedals without any further modification besides a simple Y-splitter, and the kit can be used for World Tour and both Rock Band games. Accordingly, Scorehero now considers double-bass pedals legal and acceptable for competitive scores. For the record, I used single pedal for this video.
6. What do you use to record your videos?
For the direct-capture I use an Adaptec Gamebridge. You can get them from Amazon.com for between $30-$50 USD. For the external view I use an older Sony Handycam. (It still records on Digital-8s...)
7. Why do you usually only hit the bass pedal during the Big Rock Ending? Doesn't that get you less points?
For an explanation of how the points gained from a BRE work, please see the description of my Run to the Hills Gold-star video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4w_e0W...
Alternately, search the Technique forums at rockband.scorehero.com for in-depth explanations of BREs for both guitar and drums.
8. Can I add you as a friend/play Band Quickplay/Score Duel/hang out with you?
I'd love to! Unfortunately, I'm just one guy who also has a job, fiancee, and is a full-time college student. So, what little time I do have for Rock Band, I'm usually spending either working on Solo Tour, or playing with my ScoreHero band, More Cowbell!
As for the friend thing, XBL only lets me have 100 friends, and I reached that limit a long time ago, and it's getting very full of people I either know in real life or am in frequent contact with on Scorehero, so it's really not likely. =/ Sorry. Don't be afraid to send me a message, though. I can't promise I'll respond the same day or even the same week, but I'll do my best to get back to you.
9. Fag. Get a life.
Please phrase all insults in the form of a question. Also, see question #8.
