    Fresh from Duluth-Now with Video!

    Wow nice drum! Love the choice of Rogers lugs. Re: weight, I have the Gretsch BB which is a monster too weight-wise and without a doubt a two-hander at all times. I picked it up with one hand when I first got it and no joke, injured my forearm.

    Yamaha Absolute Hybrid Maple Drums

    I've been kicking around the idea of selling my Live Customs (the previous ones, not the new hybrid ones) to help fund some AHMs. I love my LCs though so it's kind of a stupid idea. But then again, the AHMs are pretty awesome. So sell awesome to get maybe more awesome, I guess. The right...

    Other Drummers on your kit.

    Every time this subject comes up I'm reminded that most people on here must not play multi-band bills where one of the (usually 3) drummers often offers up their kit for everyone to use. That scene must have less drunks or assholes or something because I've pretty much never had a problem with...

    Tama Dyna-Sync Double Pedal. Love it!

    Yeah Markkuliini, dang, nice work. I've been working on my right foot for a couple years and I'm *well* behind where you're at. I'm liking the Dyna Sync too. Bass drum pedals are weird things though-- i feel like there's a psychological thing to them or something. A couple days after getting...

    Remo Ambassador X

    These were my go-to heads for a couple years probably, for snares and toms. I've since moved on to coated CS on snare and Emperors on toms. But the Amb X's are a nice midway point between an Ambassador and Emperor, I think.

    Paiste Modern Essentials 602 15" Hi Hats

    You must be right. Looks like there's been nine pairs sold on Reverb in 2019 so they do come up. Just not since I started looking.... Also according to Reverb, prices have gone up. Maybe in part due to threads like this one! Maybe I'll just keep quiet and wait and watch....

    Keeping stable time

    As mentioned above, try LiveBPM. It's a speedometer and not something you all are trying to play to. Note where you speed up / slow down, work on it, etc. I've even used Live BPM for recording in cases when not recording to a click. I do sometimes hear bands in neighboring practice spaces...
