I don't know much about the cymbal making process (lathing, hammering, forming, etc.), but I know the ideal cymbals start with B20 bronze.
Do all of the manufacturers use the same B20? Are there variants of B20? I'm not talking about B8, B10, etc. those are obviously different mixtures of...
I had asked this same question a while back. The answer I got then was "it doesn't matter as you wouldn't hear the difference".
Ok no, that's false.
I recently installed the tom mount for my Yamaha Stage Custom and mounted the toms to them. Now when I play, I can definitely notice the bass...
Got a great deal on a set of 15s, so these are up for sale. In excellent condition with no fleas, cracks, or keyholing:
$225 + shipping from the Houston area. I haven't recorded a sound demo, but they sound exactly like this:
I got a set of 14" Kerope hats which are amazing me. THESE are the hats I hear in my head and have surpassed my Bosphorus New Orleans hats for the #1 spot.
I would highly recommend a set of them. They really can do it all from jazz to rock and all things between.

That bass drum has a great boomy, rounded sound to it with the Aquarian head on...
Fellow lefty! That's a very nice looking kit!
Although I will agree that A&F's pricing is pretty ridiculous. I get the whole unique niche in the drum market thing and they definitely found it. But to charge what they do for their products seems way too excessive.
Well, I thought I wanted a Ludwig Neusonic and still may. But I just HAD to keep snooping around, and although I originally said I didn't want a drilled bass drum, these Yamaha Stage Custom Birches are starting to really interest me.
Doing some initial research, they receive a lot of very...
Last night when I was playing, I noticed my foot keeps sliding down my bass drum pedal. I find myself needing to move it back up often. Same thing with the hi-hat pedal.
Any suggestions? I have a Tama HP50 and the Classic HH stand. I tried scooching the throne closer, but that didn't seem to...
Allow me to retort as your assumptions about what I meant are not entirely accurate.
I'm a supporter of the smaller companies starting up and trying to make a name for themselves. I'll use PureSalem Guitars out of Miami as a perfect example. You probably have never heard of them because you...
