    Ebay/Craigslist heads up for vintage drums-the official thread

    What do you guys think of this 3 piece 70's gretsch kit? It's about a 30 min drive from my place. He's asking 650 but seems willing to go down. What would you pay for it? Or is it a pass. I don't have a lot of experience buying vintage gear, but I always thought it would be cool to own. I'd...

    Doublestrokes on a lifted bass drum

    Yea it's a sonor kit. I'll mess around with adjusting the bass drum itself when I have time. The hoop seems to be the glaring issue. Sometimes I'll setup my pedal facing a couch or something when I practice at night. My doubles are a lot more clean and consistent when I get the beater to hit at...

    Doublestrokes on a lifted bass drum

    I'm having a hard time with doublestrokes ever since I switched to a smaller bass drum.

    Your latest cymbal purchase.....

    Paiste Masters Thin vs Masters Swish

    It'd be so much easier of my local Guitar Center carried a wider variety of cymbals. I appreciate the posts, and I'll look into the Giant Beats as well.

    Paiste Masters Thin vs Masters Swish

    I tend to play on the lighter side and am a fan of big cymbals as well. I forgot about the 24 inch thin. That may have the dark ride AND crash sound I'm looking for, and nice stick definition. I guess I don't have to stick to the masters series, the K custom dark ride 22" sounds quite nice. But...

    Paiste Masters Thin vs Masters Swish

    Hi I'm new to this place. I was wondering if there are any people here who had the chance to play or own a couple cymbals from the Paiste Masters series. I decided to get something nice for myself recently and purchased the Masters Swish. It really is an amazing cymbal that's worth the price...
