This website is for You.


This website is for You.

BEATIT.TV – THE DRUMMERS’ WEBSITE is a steadily growing website focusing on drums and drumming in the broad sense of the word. It was created by professionally active drummers, who make albums, have performed at the biggest and most prestigious venues and festivals in Poland (including the Przystanek Woodstock festival, which is the biggest in Europe) and know exactly what a drummer’s day-to-day existence is like, be it professional or amateur. We understand what it means to be uncertain as to what gear to choose and be afraid that our hard-earned money might not be utilized the way we want it to be. We know exactly how much time and effort it takes to master drumming theory and technique to a degree which enables playing with good instrumentalists in a good band. Also our gear got broken at some point (a cracked lug, damaged thread, bent hoop, rust stains on chromium-plated elements, battered heads or broken cymbals). Over the years, we have learned a trick or two to avoid or even eliminate such situations with the help of proper maintenance and playing technique. We, too, have experienced the frustration of not being able to tune our drums to get the sound we hear in our heads. On the other hand, we also know the satisfaction resulting from solving all these problems and achieving our goals. You have similar problems? is a portal meant to function as a platform for sharing experiences, knowledge and tricks concerning the art of drumming.
