    Yea, loss, I've been window shopping there since before I even played anything.

    I'll replace the stock heads eventually. Probably do ambassadors and a powerstroke 3. Maybe CS on the toms, I have no clue yet.

    I haven't messed with the tuning on mine yet. It's perfect. I think the guys at the store tuned it.

    Thank you man. I stared at this kit long and hard for a good year or so. I knew I'd end up buying it eventually. It is perfect for me.

    New kit day! (Gretsch content)

    I've been gone probably the last 5-6 months or so, and yesterday I made a big change to my setup. I was out and about when I stopped in my local music store for the first time in months. Basically, I ended up running back to my house, grabbing my kit and gear and trading in my shells and a...

    To those of you with multiple snares....

    I've got a 13x3.5" Mapex MPX that has become my main snare, and a 60s 14x5" Tama that's on the back burner in need of repair, but sounds decent as it sits.

    Big bass drifting?

    I'm having a slight problem. I upgraded from my 70s Pearl to a lovely ddrum Defiant. They look great, and sound astounding for what I paid. ($225-$250 in trade, kit was $900 new) But there's a big problem, which is the big bass. I had my 22×14 and it was just dandy. The modern sized 22×18, for...

    Shallow bass drums

    I imagine the shallowest you could possibly go and still get a decent sound is 22×10 maybe. And that's with s well tuned and muffled batter and reso, and I imagine a port would open it up and control it more.

    When "Rock Stars" Are Jerks

    I don't think I've ever had a bad experience with a rockstar. Even as far as meeting Bam Margera, he was one of the nicest people I've ever chatted with. Got to get on the tour bus and everything.

    OT - Some new stuff you old guys'll like.

    Heh, I generally get positive old people replies. Maybe our ears wear differently.
