    I cant stop buying cymbals on Ebay.

    Exactly what I said in the title post. I just picked up a set of AAX Metal Hats for 117 dollars SHIPPED. I picked up an A Custom 8" splash for 45 dollars. These are BRAND NEW cymbals never hit. Believe me... I DONT NEED ANY MORE CYMBALS. I have enough cymbals to stock 4 kits and have an...

    Any feedback appreciated

    Well, I guess I would be hypocritical if I were to judge every drummer who's asked advice on here without giving example of my own play. These are tracks from a live show a few years ago. The mix is done from recording from the board so its not the best mix, but for this genre of music, it is...

    Yamaha Flying Dragon Direct Drive

    I've been checking these pedals out, and am thinking of adding it to my pedal collection. I always loved Speed Kings, and now am interested in the double version of Yamaha's Flying Dragon pedal direct drive pedal. Anyone have any experience with these? Thanks.

    Jack De Johnette Signature Drumheads?

    Where have these things gone? I used to love to record with them, and they've pretty much dissapeared off of the face of the earth. Its a shame, because they're really great heads. Anyone use these and know a good place to find them in all sizes? I havent found one at 14" at all... and...

    Me Playing with Tara Michelle and John Legend

    This is a live show for Tara Michelle(Formerly of Lauren Hill)'s project a few years ago. John Legend playing keys and just a really talented band (Besides me) behind them. Its a really interesting little piece but the sound quality isnt great as it was recorded from the board. The ghost...

    Bass Drum problems
