    I really enjoyed watching that. And the music sounded really good, from a prog-metal fan. Great work.

    Re: Your ride cymbal!

    I've gone through 4 rides before this one. This is a keeper for me, does everything I want and has great tone.

  3. Re: Questions on Sabian AAX Limited Edition Cymbal Pack

    I've had both the AAX Stage and AAX X-Plosion hats. The Stage's were an all around good set. They do everything well but personally after playing them a while their appeal to me was gone. They...

    Re: Vic's drum shop in Chicago

    Rick,

    I've been to both places. And they are both great shops. I bought a snare drum and splash cymbal in Memphis, and a ton of other stuff at Vic's. Vic's just has more room and a TON more...

    I've been using them on my floor toms, but I decided to replace my worn out G2 heads with these. They definitely do not need any muffling, they have significantly less resonance than the G2 heads. ...

    Sticky: Re: Sabian Cymbals

    I just couldn't resist, with Sabian's AAX sale, and Guitar Center's 15% off cymbals last weekend. I've wanted these since the Cymbal Vote came out, the 14" AAX-Plosion Hats. They are SO crisp, and...

    Re: octobans vs deccabons

    You can make your own pretty easily. I made mine out of acrylic, 6" extruded tubing. I got a 6' length and made a set of four. They sound even better knowing that I made them myself.

    Yes, AJ did a 4-5 minute solo. He was almost invisible back there! Mike was the only member who came out to hang with the crowd.

  20. Re: I see why alot of you don't care for drum racks!

    My rack is invaluable to me, because of the size of my kit and the mics. I would have no room for all the stands I need for cymbals and mics if I didn't use the rack.
