    Cymbal Packs..Is there usually one clunker in there?

    I'm not sure how you could actually make a determination on any one cymbal in a noisy music store just randomly hitting the cymbal. With me I know what my ear likes, and usually if I know the composition of the cymbal it most likely works out. It's not really a trained ear, its just physics. I...

    Ping / Rock Ride

    I have played Paiste for over 30 years. I like a heavier ride sound with a nice bell and good ping. I just added a 24" Classic 2002. I just did a recording if you want to hear how it sounds mixed in a rock environment. You can also check the video with the PST8s and hear the sound of that...

    Cymbal Packs..Is there usually one clunker in there?

    I have played Paiste for over 30 years. In my opinion they are the most consistent sounding cymbal out there. If you crack one and have to buy the same cymbal again, you are most likely going to get the same quality and sound as the first one. I have read some things where people say Zildjians...

    Suggestions On Drumming Space

    When I was dating my wife and she came to my house I had a 7 piece Ludwig kit in the office. So I'm not sure why she would be surprised that this is happening, lol. But it's really hard to play when people are home its so loud and really not pleasant to listen too. I'm not really interested in...

    My back yard is owned by a pool and a huge deck, no room for a shed, and for sure that would not be good for neighbors.

    I wish! I will check around but I don't think they have such a thing here. Most bands here are some old guy with a guitar, LOL

    Who would say 22/16/13 is more versatile than 20/14/12?

    I think it depends on what kind of music you are playing. Rock music really demands bigger shell sizes. I have 24/13/16/18. Those are go to sizes for rock. 22" bass drums are versatile. I know Sonor has some 3 piece kits that come in 22/12/16 if that's your ideal set up. However I'm not sure...

    Yes I have been looking I wish I could find something, but I would definitely have to put a full alarm system in and take security measures.

    I don't have reset up my kit, but all my lighting and stuff and cameras. Its hard to even get the same angles if I get a good shot because I have to take it down. The kit stays set up, but the playing time is few and far between. Thanks for the comment.

    I have two guest rooms which I thought of converting one, but I would still have the issue of playing when people are home. I just want to say, "Hey, stopping off at the studio on the way home for a few hours." Dreaming huh? LOL

    Thanks for the comment, I would be able to play a bunch more in a sperate area. What's happening right now is compromise, so I'm not playing enough right now to move this in a direction where I can take on session work and actually progress forward. I see what you mean about justifying the space...

    Suggestions On Drumming Space

    Hello everyone, I really need some help brainstorming here. I have a mini drum studio at home. It's in my office area. My drums are basically in the corner of the room and everything just fits. This really has been a sore spot with the wife, for some reason she really wants a full home office...

    Ludwig Keystone X Discontinued

    I just special ordered a Classic Oak floor tom. It's the same shell as the Keystone X just a different badge and lucky the exact same finish.

    Yes or No, Bass Drum Pillows

    I have a 24x16 and the only thing I have in it is the Evans EMAD2 which comes with a damping ring and a Evans EQ pad inside and it sounds amazing. All I do is record! You can check out some of my recordings here: Also Beat Down Brown solved all my issues with tuning. My drums have never sounded...

    Ludwig Keystone X Discontinued

    I have one and I absolutely love my kit. I really want to get an 18" Floor tom, but it sucks that it's gonna have a different badge. Is there no way to custom order it with the proper badge?
