    Cymbal set at tonal opposite end of spectrum

    Looking for a midrange cymbal pack leads me to believe that you are on a tight budget. If so, just stick with the K’s. They are great and will get you paid. But if you got money to blow maybe get a used 22” of something and if you like it try another pie in the line before getting a whole pack

    Gee i use the same ones! Good to know these are a ticking time bomb. My biggest gripe is that the knurling goes down too far for my left hand. The design presupposes that 1) The drummer plays matched but also 2) That in trad the player holds the brush further down the brush. My left hand is...

    Geez Louise that band is swingin daddy-o and i mean swaaaaangin! That bassist deserves some praise too. That dude got pocket. Very solid walkin from him. And ya the drummer man that's a high pressure situation. To have everyone look at you, the whole crowd full of her peers, and the whole band...

    Me playing and soloing at a recent live gig

    Your solo coupled with the Yamahas gives me strong Antonio Sanchez vibes. Very tasty. My only criticism is why is the guitar player standing sooo far away from you and the bassist?? lol

    Of all things, a hardware rant

    Wow the Yamahas are half the weight of the Atlas Classics?? The Classics are already pretty light, well lighter compared to Pearl stuff which i was using before. Dang i gotta keep an eye on the Yamaha stuff then.

    thanks. Good tip for me to know. Ya fortunately the stand goes high enough to position my ride where i want, without having to use the boom to go higher. But still a great stand imo
