Format: Staple Bound
The reason I chose the title, "Buns of Steel" is because this book is a workout book. There is not alot of theory or conceptual work here. This is a plain book filled with exercises. For me, a drum hobbyist, it helps to focus my practicing. I first heard about this book in an article by Ben Jacoby on the "drumdojo" website. He actually recommended it in a piece on congas.
The new buyer should be aware that this is a venerable work. Its first copyright date is 1935, but the exercises are still relevant.
So, get the book and do the practice, and we can change my title from "Buns of Steel" to "Guns of Steel".

i have been playing drums for quite a while now and untill last year i had never heard about Stick Control by Gorge Stone.... Now i havent really paid to much attention to it untill recently. Now this book will make you have a technique like Dave Weckl, Horicio "el negro" hernadez, Dennis Chambers, Greg Bisonette, Antionio Sanchez, Steve Gadd, and many more Drum Giants.. This book For me is the best book out there right now. 1 hour a day thats all you need to do with this book one hour every day.

If you want to learn drumming, you simply have to have this book. It will help you learn the basic snare combinations so well, it will become second nature.

Highly recommend to anyone who wants to improve their drumming, particularly those that might not be able to play a kit at all times. Will make you a better drummer within hours. Simple and effective. I've photocopied pages that I keep with me in all my drum cases. Used for practice but also great for warm ups. Go through 30 minutes of exercises before any performance and you will be loose and ready to rock!
