    Re: Decent sounding budget cymbals?

    Another agreement on buying used high end. Better sounding and you will save money in the long run.

    Re: Tip for drumstick tips

    Re: Cymbals...

    Can't go wrong with the Zildjians mentioned. No experience with the XS20's. Those are Sabian's mid priced line, but they use the same alloy as the pro level cymbals. Probably a different...

    Re: New snare stand...

    If you can check one out in person, do so. I never thought about it, but maybe I just got a flawed one that got past quality control.

    Re: Drum mics

    As far as overhead condenser mic's, Sterling Audio is hard to beat for the money. I agree with the others on the Audix mic's. I have an i5 for the snare and a D6 for the bass, but I heard good...
