    Re: 20" K ride completes the set. maybe

    I had a gig Sunday afternoon and I took out all Ks - including the ride and the 17" crash for the first time. Loved the clean ping and minimal wash of the ride as well as the sound of the crash.
  2. Re: I've finally reach that point ,no more drum buying

    I'm at the point now where I don't see myself buying any more drum kits. I've been picking up cymbals lately, as well as hardware and some PA gear, but I think I'm done with large purchases.

    If you're that close, you gotta go! It's a big campus now and they have concerts in their auditorium. They are adding another 350,000 square feet next year.

    Nightmare room Saturday night

    Played a gig in a new room and, as I am responsible for sound, it was a nightmare for me. I knew the room would be a challenge after seeing it for the first time the week before. It's a big open...

    Re: Opinions on my first drum set?

    I would definitely explore used. It's a buyer's market and you can usually get good gear in great condition for about half of what it would cost new. A good set of cymbals often costs more than the...

    Re: Hi-Hat Cymbals For Jazz

    I agree with EM. Zildjian New Beats are the most recorded hi hats for a reason. They sound great and work well for most types of music. As a novice drummer, you want to keep your options open to...

    Re: Camco pedal

    I have the old Camco pedal from 1980 - still use it on my kit in our rehearsal room. In all those years I think all I've ever had to do for maintenance is replace the spring once.
