    Star, SQ2, or Craviotto !!

    I'll weigh it later and let you know. It's not light. The hoops I believe are around 500 a pair.

    Star, SQ2, or Craviotto !!

    Pretty cool man. Vukan (the man behind Oriollo) is doing some really special work. I have two of his snares and they're exceptional instruments. I seriously considered a full kit before ordering my mahogany last year. If you don't own a bell bronze, I'd highly recommend the Oriollo Bellmaker...

    Clean sounding, non clangy easy to open cymbals

    Thank you. I have a feeling the 602 is going to be the best of the bunch. The bells on both rides are so great. I've been in dark trashy mode 100% of the time since around 2010 so this is a lot of fun. These are going to sideline a lot of cymbals to the for sale sections.

    Clean sounding, non clangy easy to open cymbals

    So the cymbals from Alamadre arrived today. A 20"Bluebird mellow ride, 19" masters dark crash and 14" masters dark hats. Now we're talking!!! I' love the DE stuff but this masters series stuff is just a little softer under the stick and has an overall warmer mellower vibe. They're all keepers...

    Clean sounding, non clangy easy to open cymbals

    So, the DE 19 and 21 arrived today. The 21 is dry and mostly stick. It has a little bit of wash and a great bell. I could see how this cymbal would really thrive in a varied dynamic live setting, although it might be a tad "focused" for really light dynamics. It probably is a superb studio...

    Pearl P-930 single chain kick pedal

    For sale is a Pearl P-930 single chain kick pedal. The amount of use is in the low hrs. I have several pedals and this one came with a hw pack. Tried it and it's really nice but I don't need it. Asking $85 shipped in the US

    Clean sounding, non clangy easy to open cymbals

    Good call! That's perfect! The paper thin that is. Thank you everybody. I'll either have a new set of clean cymbals to use or a bunch of reselling to do hahaha. I'm optimistic but blind (or deaf really) cymbal buys are a gamble at best. Luckily Paiste seems to do a good job retaining their...

    Clean sounding, non clangy easy to open cymbals

    So, thanks to Almamadre, I have a 20" mellow blue bird, 19" masters dark and 14" masters hats on the way. I'm going to round this set out with 18 and 19 dark energy crashes and a 21" Dark Energy Mark 1 ride. Looking forward to giving these a try.

    Pearl Mimic and ATV adrums

    The light bulb went out in the drum room...I thought leds weren't supposed to burn out as fast? Doesn't feel all that different to me hahaha. I'll get better pics but here are some teasers. I'll include all the hw used for this kit with the exception of the kick pedal and throne.

    Pearl Mimic and ATV adrums

    Near mint condition. This is the best ekit module out there in my opinion. Out of the box and with about 15 minutes tweaking the adrums and the hats, the experience is the closest to the real thing that I've had. I haven't decided if I'm entirely committed to selling them. I bought them out of a...

    Center Cracked Cymbal Repair

    Instead of a sharpie, if you lightly spray the cracked area with the faintest mist of wd40 and then sprinkle some flour or baby powder over the crack, then lightly tap the bow of the cymbal to shake free any excess powder, you'll be left with an exact outline of the crack. We usually can't see...
