When we're not chasing drum news, checking out the latest gear or chatting with drum heroes, we spend a fair amount of time gawping at funny videos on YouTube (it's a tough job, we know). This leaves us fairly well-placed to deliver to you this yuletide gift – our favourite drum videos that we've stumbled upon this year. Enjoy!
