    What Kind of Setup Do You Have for IEMs?

    I'm on Shure SE425s hardwired to a Xenyx mixer, direct feed from the house board for mix combined with a feed from my Roland SPD SX. Not ideal, but currently I'm the only band member that uses IEMs. I've been trying to figure out a good way to get the rest of the band in on it. Playing with the...

    They don’t make Noxon anymore

    Call me vain, but I just like that's it's pink. The 250g tub is a better buy over the little 50g tube. 200g more for about twice the price.

    Better than Simichrome?

    Ajax 1930-35 Brass Snare Drum 6.5" x 14"

    Leave it! It looks like nickel from the pics. Imo aged nickel is lovely, and it can be hard to polish out.

    Raw canvas to take Round Badges in another direction?

    Agreed, the green really would need some fading to look right.

    Raw canvas to take Round Badges in another direction?

    Ugh, I know. I think this one was from that big Gretsch estate sale a while back. It would be excellent if someone had some matching shells out there. There's no edges cut, even.

    Raw canvas to take Round Badges in another direction?

    I've had a beautiful 20/12/14/16 Rogers Holiday in Champagne Sparkle in the past. It was gorgeous, but I was afraid to play it out and I can hardly fit two kits in my studio space. I'm ready for a little more of a statement; champagne is so classy and understated. It's hard to choose between...

    Raw canvas to take Round Badges in another direction?

    Lacquer coats are finished and curing! Waiting at least few more days before I wet sand and polish. The end is near! I've got a few projects cooking in between recording and tour: - Rhodes Stage 88 to re-tolex and replace hammer tips - P Bass fretless conversion - This kit and the Jazzette

    Raw canvas to take Round Badges in another direction?

    Naw, the crack is vertical from top to bottom and almost through to the wrap. Still makes a good noise with some muffling, but it bothers my soul and tuning is arduous.

    You make a good point. Wouldn't be bad at all.

    Raw canvas to take Round Badges in another direction?

    I just received a raw Gretsch Jasper shell that I was planning on using to replace the cracked 13 in my main gigging kit. I thought I had the crack repaired after making a mold and using heat/moisture/pressure/glue to set it in round, but it came back after some playing and a head change. Now...

    SOLD 6x13 Keller Shell Snare/Light Project

    I built this long ago and I'm trying to clear space. Double ended Adonis lugs, triple flange hoops, Keller 9 or 10 ply with sharp edges. Sounds killer, but it doesn't match anything I own. Holes are drilled for trick throw (not included,) and light is strung through the vent. Hardware has some...
