    What cable?

    I want to try using the speakers in my Peavey Classic for my Valve JR. I picked up a cable with a Male to plug into the VJ and a female to plug into the speaker connection on the Peavey. I don't get any sound so I'm thinking I need different connectors on one. Anyone know what I should look for?

    Practice amp

    That Monoprice is pretty cool! It's funny, I've watched so many videos of amps. All different kinds. One thing I've realized is I just don't like the sound of Fender Amp for the most part. I can see why someone would like it but it's not for me lol. I went on a journey to no where on getting...

    What kind of "drum car" do you drive?

    1997 Chevy Blazer. I've been able to fit 3 people, cooler & 5 pc kit in it. In my younger days I almost bought a 72 Cadillac hearse for a drum hauler. Definitely going bigger with my next vehicle though.

    anyone got any interesting/different Hi Hat top + bottom combinations?

    I used a New Beat bottom over a Rude bottom for years. Had a friend tell me he wanted them if I ever sold them. I have some singles around I was mixing up until I got the 2002 bug.

    Would you sign a non-compete clause at a venue?

    We had an owner try that. Not to the point of signing anything. But we weren't having it anyway.

    Beginning Guitar Next Week

    As someone who just began learning guitar in November I definitely recommend trying to lay everyday if possible. Need to build up the callous on your fingers to play comfortable. I didn't touch my guitar for a week because of being beat up from shoveling snow and I'm having to build them up...

    Bass Drum Sizes Demo

    I think the 20 x 20 is kind of an odd size for something like this. At least to me. I also liked the1st one surprisingly. I think it's more EQ after the mic but hat's just me.

    decent mid range cymbal set?

    Really depends on your budget and what you want to get? Used is always better bang for the buck.

    OT (kind of) Small Practice PA

    Thanks for the replies! Ok, let's say a budget of $300-500. It would be primarily for a small practice at my home. 2-4 inputs. should work. Vocal mic and my e-drums. When I at small I mean as small as possible. My man cave is about 12x15ish with no room to spare as it is. I do like the idea of...

    Practice amp

    Lazmo, I'm digging that Laney! So I sent the old Peavey Classic VTX out for some work. Had the footswitch plug replaced and new tubes put in. Found a replacement footswitch on eBay. Holy hell is that thing loud!! I'm real happy with the Marshall. In fact I let a friend borrow my Pedal for a...
