    Best of both worlds?

    A while ago I posted a topic about wether to buy drum cases or bags and really got some helpfull responses, but in the search for durable protection I've noticed that you can either buy bags, wich have a soft interior and also a 'soft' outer protection. Or cases wich have hard inside protection...

    Your famous drummer memorabilia

    I was wondering if anyone has some drumstuff they got from drummers they admire, like sticks, broken cymbals, kits or autographes or anything? I've only got some sticks of local drummers and one of Byron McMackin, who's the drummer of Pennywise. Pretty proud of that one, since he's one of the...

    Strap or Chain?

    Maybe this topic has been posted many times, but I was wondering what is the real difference between a kevlar strap or the 'plastic' pearl straps, or a chain driven pedal. I've only ever played with chaindriven pedals. Is a strap smoother or something? Thanks!

    Iron Cobra Direct Glide?

    Heey, I'm not sure if I already asked this question before so here goes: Has anyone ever tried to convert iron cobra's to direct drive? It seems to me that direct drives are just bit faster somehow and the connection has proven it's worth on the axis and trick pedals. So why not a Iron Cobra...
