    Tama Rockstar Custom Blue with a mix of Paiste and Sabian

    The kit is still not quite complete. I just need to add a 6" rack tom and add three more Paiste crashes and a Paiste swish, two of which will replace the Sabian B8 cymbal (which is a loaner) and the crash above my ride. I'm also replacing all of the tom heads with clear Emperors and Ambassadors...

    Vintage Slingerland Gene Krupa snare drum

    Hi there, I was wondering if anyone on here is familiar with this snare drum, as well as what should be used to clean it. From my understanding it is a solid brass snare drum, but I could be wrong. Is there any sort of chrome on it which is making it appear shinier? It doesn't really LOOK like...

    Simmons Pads and Roland V-Drum module

    Anyone have any experience with old Simmons Pads, Roland V-Drum interfaces, or both?? I want to add electronics to my kit just for some samples and the like. Figured I'd just go with some old Simmons Pads that I can get for dirt cheap. I'm wondering if I would run into any problems using a...

    Anybody know any companies that make a completely legless hihat stand? I know that Ludwig used to, but I can't find it in their current catalogues. In the meantime I'll keep checking eBay. Thanks a lot for any suggestions. :)

    Tuning cowbells??

I don't mean seriously changing the note, but I have a set of tuned tribells made by AFRO, and I noticed that two of the bells are slightly flat (meaning they are lower in pitch than they should be) relative to...

    Looking for a particular stick

    So I've finally realized that the sticks I've been using for sometime are too heavy for me. I ended up changing to a Regal Tip 7A model and am very happy with that, but the only problem is that they are too short. Does anyone know of a stick very similar to the Regal Tip 7A in feel and weight...

    One handed drum roll (the Rim Roll Method)

    Ok, I've never really taught drum lessons before, so forgive me if this isn't a very efficient lesson, but I'll try my best. I've found this works best with matched grip, either on the left or right hand, working to develop ieither hand one at a time. Basically what you do is, as you're holding...

    Bass Drum Front Head Artwork

    Hey everyone, I'm trying to come up with a really cool image that I can put on my kick drums, but I'm really lost for ideas. I don't really want to do a band logo or anything like that because my band could be gone next week and there's my money down the drain. Anyone got any suggestions they...

    Ha! That really is me sitting in front of them though. :P I don't own a digital camera, and my avatar pic was taken by someone else, so I will try and post a pic of my kit as soon as I am able. Trust me, it won't compare to this one though. Haha.
