    Early CB Free Floating Brass Snare - 6.5" x 14" - $250 Shipped

    It's an incredible snare. The only reason I'm selling is that my wife and I are buying a house, and we need some money for all of those lovely fees.

    If you had to choose one for their music after Genesis.

    Peter Gabriel, no question, no hesitation.

    Early CB Free Floating Brass Snare - 6.5" x 14" - $250 Shipped

    Here’s an awesome early 80s CB700 Free Floating Brass Snare. CB is actually the company who invented the free floating snare. Shortly after they began marketing them Pearl bought the patent and design from them, so this is literally the same thing as a first generation Pearl Free Floater. This...

    Tama Speed Cobra + Pearl P-930 Bass Drum Pedals

    Here's an early Tama Speed Cobra bass pedal, before they put the model number on the footboard, it’s definitely been played but works perfectly. This pedal transfers a lot of energy and is super quick. $120 shipped in the continental US. And then here's a Pearl P-930 bass drum pedal. Very...

    Do you like your beater hard or soft?

    I've been using these for a few years, and I love them. Really well balanced, great sound. https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/VKB1--vic-firth-vickick-bass-drum-beater-medium-hard-felt-radial-head

    Famous Artist you really do not like

    James Taylor, Eric Clapton, etc... Boring, soulless, soft-rockin' mediocrity.

    Thoughts on Sonor Delites? Edit: NEW KIT DAY

    I couldn't find a well recorded of a Delite Bop kit online, so I decided to make one. The only thing I noticed after I recorded it is that I forgot to un-pan tracks one and two on my board, so the kick is in the left channel only, snare in the right. I'm an idiot. Depth/Diameter: 16x18 -...

    Snare Stand Recommendation - UPDATE!

    The Yamaha 700 series stand never did me wrong.

    Ok help me out

    I mean, if the guy doesn't want to send more pictures and doesn't want to budge on the price he doesn't have to. He can let the drums just sit on Reverb for forever.

    Thoughts on Sonor Delites? Edit: NEW KIT DAY

    I'm not angry, hah. To bring it back around, the Delites are awesome. I wish I found find a bass drum mount that wouldn't involve drilling the shell. It looks like the Rocket Launcher might not fit, does anyone know about that? I've considered trying the modding a Pearl Optimount thing, but...

    Here's my old S-Class kit. I got it in a trade with the studio I worked for, my vintage Slingerlands (Mutt kit, re-wrapped in green sparkle, 13/16/24) straight up for the S-Class (10/12/14/20 + 14" Snare). I ended up trading it back after 4 or 5 months, it had some things I didn't love, mainly...

    Thoughts on Sonor Delites? Edit: NEW KIT DAY

    thanks very much! As I said before, the only Sonor experience before was a brief affair with an S-Class kit, which was fantastic. I've been a Sonor fan for a while though, I'm a Glenn Kotche fanboy.
