    which hihat stand has the best "break down" design?

    Thats the stand I was referring to. Be aware that the action is not nearly as smooth as other stands and its finicky. But the convenience is outstanding

    which hihat stand has the best "break down" design?

    I use the Gibraltar that has a wing nut for the rod. You loosen it and the whole thing collapses to bag size. Its clunky and not as smooth as a regular hh stand but i love the portability.

    Steve Perry Returns With First New Music In 24 Years

    Some of his stuff, solo and with Journey, is cheesy for sure. But I don't think you can deny that he is one of the greatest pure voices in pop/rock history along with Freddy Mercury and a few others.

    Craviotto Ad from Sweetwater

    The thing is they arent really single ply are they, at least the big drums? Do you get the benefit of single ply with two shells glued together?

    Ayotte wood snare question

    i've owned lots of ayotte snares, and still own 2 plus kits. What this looks like is a snare from the last iteration of ayotte when they were trying to make a comeback about 2 years ago. They made some snares with this different sort of inlay look like yours.

    I think the bearing edges may actually be shallower.

    Vic Firth SD2 Bolero stick - anything similar with a nylon tip?

    The SD1 ("General") is a beast. It's a great stick, lighter because it's maple, but it's still a beast.

    Zildjian EAK 20” Ride 2474

    Of course. I've had it for about 2 years. I've used it for singer/songwriter and rock cover gigs. I use either the VF Steve Gadd sticks or VF SD-4 sticks.
