Thomas Lang Project

I'm creating a Progressive Pop album with instructional drum videos and full play-along package

As a consummate and experienced musician I can appreciate and enjoy complex music but as a music lover and fan I have always enjoyed listening to approachable Pop music more than anything. On this album I am combining my love for simple Pop songs with my passion for complex drum parts. The songs on this album were inspired by the grooves and sounds of 80’s Pop and Funk music but I added a lot of my 21st century drumming flavors into the mix.

All songs feature incredible musicians from all over the world as well as some of my favorite vocalists. Since I am also very active in the field of music education, I am offering all songs as play-along versions so you can make your own mixes and jam to these songs, plus I am providing all my drummer friends and fans out there with a comprehensive video tutorial on how to play these songs on the drums.

This is a very expensive undertaking and I want to deliver you the best possible product I can imagine, so I need your help to pull it off! In return, you will have the unique opportunity to get your hands on many limited edition rewards, once-in a lifetime experiences and exclusives.

Thomas Lang Drumtacs 4-Pack

Thomas Lang Drumtacs 4-Pack
$30

Tame those errant overtones from your drums and cymbals without killing the tone!

These specially developed circular mutes are releasable, reusable, super tacky sound control pads. Used as directed, they will not flap, buzz, fly off or harm any percussive surface including: bottom heads, vertical heads, underneath cymbals, inside bells and blocks … even under heavy pounding and in extreme temperatures.

Drums: KILL THE “BWONG” KEEP THE “BOOM”
Not just a dampener! Drumtacs are selective. A single tac placed about an inch from the rim will remove only the high frequency overtone and leave a deeper focused sound with improved response and increased attack. As the Tac is moved toward the center of the drum more frequencies are removed and dampening occurs. Problem Drums with a nasty buzz or ring can often be tamed with drum tacs… try two!!! One on the batter head and one on the resonant (bottom) head.

Cymbals
A single tac placed on the underside of a cymbal near the dome, will slightly darken and mellow the tone. Placed on the edge, the Tac will heavily dampen the sound. In between those two placements are endless sound control options. Practice with decreased exposure to dangerous high frequencies and without expensive ugly cymbal covers that ruin the cymbal’s balance and feel of strike.
