    Zildjian 9.5" Zil-Bel

    This was a nice unexpected gift from my girlfriend along with some Zildjian brushes and an Evans magnetic drum key. Talk about ringggggg. It found its home right between my two floor toms on the bubinga kit. Dennis

    I was at one of my favorite drum shops today and was given an offer that was really hard to refuse. It was a Yamaha Absolute maple six piece kit. Kick, three rack toms and two floor toms.

    Hi, am new here and just wanted to introduce my new Tama Starclassic Bubinga kit in Scorched Copper Burst. I just fell in love with the finish. I have two other drums on the way, a 14 x 12 floor tom and a 14 x 5 1/2 Bubinga snare. Please pardon the clutter in the room and the quality of the...
