    Have a bunch of gear to sell, just can't be bothered anymore.

    I hear you. I currently have eight kits, which is really about three kits more than I have room to store. I'm thinking of consigning at least two kits. The rest are harder to part with. I used to flip like crazy, I just don't want to deal with it anymore.

    Kelly SHU microphone mount

    I've been using a Kelly SHU mount in my bass drum for years with great success. Recently they came out with a mounting method to install the Kelly SHU in floor toms and run the wiring though the vent. I ordered my new Gretsch USA Custom kit with this in mind, I had Gretsch install a second...

    Sugar Percussion

    Gretsch "The One" snare videos

    I didn't see these videos until a month or two ago, but I became Gretsch snare drum fan some time ago. I got my first COB 4160 in 1991. It was my primary snare drum until 2008. Todays I have an embarrassing bounty of snare drums at my disposal. I love and use Ludwig metal snare drums, most of...

    Upgrading my snare

    I agree 100% with this. A few months ago I bought a 2003 DW/Craviotto Curly maple single ply snare drum for $650. Currently there are a few Slingerland single ply Radio king snare drums on eBay in that price range. Guitar Center has a Nobel & Cooley on their used gear site for $550. You can get...

    I'm going to gig my new Gretsch kit tonight for the first time.
