    Amazing Tama Suitcase Kit Demo!

    Unclear what this guy is saying, but I had no idea these little nesting suitcase kits could pack so much.

    Considering Cymbal Pack K Sweet Zildjian

    I’m sort of in your boat. In my entire life I’ve only bought two brand new pristine cymbals. I see boxed sets as similar to decorating a room in one’s home all at once. I am more at piece by piece guy. But that’s me. If brand new is a scratch that must be itched— a bucket list scratch—a...

    Argue/Vote for Next Snare

    To go with the timbre of the drums you have, I’d say the Canopus Oak. To go with the music you describe, the Legacy Maple.

    Upside down hats

    For me it was hearing the logic behind the Bellson/Zildjian collaboration in creating New Beats for a more pronounce “chick”—so that’s the tradition for me. Now that I’m older and more experienced, and maybe recalcitrant, I feel fine with flipping my hats to make them top heavy for more...

    Well if she doesn’t I can think of a few hands signals you guys can give in return.

    QUEENSRŸCHE’s Rockenfeld Sues Over Dismissal from $$$ Triumverate

    Noted. Something tells me not to expect much intellectual nourishment from a website called But one ever knows so I’m saving that digital excursion for the next time insomnia hits.

    As long as she doesn’t start doing the James Brown, throwing up hand signals of how much your are being fined for mistakes.
