    alright. thanks for the help you all. i think i’ll do a bid type deal with the prices set as those above. if people feel like giving more, then they can do so.

    probably more like 200 for the hats, i think. there are zero listings for 50s zildjian a hats below 200. most sit just around that mark.

    and last but certainly not least, the prize of this “collection”, cymbal(s) number 4: 14 inch hi hats. lots of hammering, actually. and they’re very shiny and nice looking. they sound great, not super cutting or sharp but very old and full sounding. very solid. they go pretty well with the other...

    cymbal number two: 22 inch ride again, could be cleaned. it does have some scratches, but i don’t think that’s going to lower the price as much as a crack will. very little amount of key-holing. very dark sounding, which is what all the kids are into these days :p

    cymbal 1: 20 inch ride. someone please help me date these, by the way! i have long since forgotten the way to classify cymbals by age. cymbal sounds great when used as a ride, could be cleaned, but that crack is a nasty turn off for many i assume. and i don’t blame any of them.

    as a bass player now, and also coming of age, i find that i seriously need to find my own ways to make and spend money on things i want. no more mommy and daddy. and the other day i remembered i had a little trove of cymbals i don’t use anymore under my bed, and i've become a little out of touch...

    RIP Charlie Watts

    jumped straight on here to give my condolences. i’m somewhat shocked this man has left this world, it didn’t seem like something that i would really ever live to see. RIP.

    Absolutely no politics for this question

    as a 15 year old who’s obsessed with vintage instruments of all kinds, this makes me sad. and it’s likely going to happen, too. i was going to make a comment about it but i see it’s already been said. brands will have less incentive to appeal to the “old way” of drums, vintage features, or...

    how do you deal with noise during practice?

    i really think i need one of those. as much as i love bass (even THAT is giving me a hearing scare… i must like being loud), drums are still so natural to me. and i love playing. even though i’ve probably played 6 times maybe since spring started, it’s so natural to just sit down and play and i...

    how do you deal with noise during practice?

    and yes: that ear thing IS going to be bad for my health, hence why it needs to stop sometime. if you’re confused by what it means, right now just sniff in through your nose very hard. your ears will become muffled and things will sound quieter.

    how do you deal with noise during practice?

    if i had to say one thing that led me to playing bass much more than drums, it would be the noise. it’s waaaay to loud to comfortably play, even when i take many headphone precautions. i wear over the ear headphones, with noise cancelling headphones overtop. that, in combination with a sometimes...
