They are both affordable, but i have very little cash flow since i am 15, but i need to know, which brand will last me longer? most of the drummers in my school say DW hardware is garbage, but i wouldn't know. most of you would say you never know till you try it for yourself but i'd rather spend money on something i know is good rather than waste it and be unhappy with my purchase. any feedback would be most helpful. thanks guys.
