    Nicko leaves Sonor for British Drum Co

    BDC posted a teaser video announcing Nicko is now a BDC artist. Didn’t see that coming! I thought he was happy as could be to be back with Sonor from everything I’d seen & heard from him in videos relating to his gear.

    At my wit's end with Guitar Center

    Full disclosure: I used to work for GC in 98/99. Besides the BS pay it wasn't a bad job, and we used to get in all kinds of cool stuff at the time that I was with the company. Being a 90's Premier nut & discontinued Paiste fanatic I'm always scouring their used listings for stuff I want/need...

    Is anyone else using an iPad mini on their gigs? What have you found as a stable holder that can secure it to a cymbal/mic stand?

    Scary trip home from the gig...

    Last night I played a gig about 90 minutes from home. We loaded up gear and left the club around 2am. About halfway through the drive home I had gotten on a tollway. After passing through a toll facility the latch on the hood of my pickup truck gives away and the hood flies open and smashes...

    Buyer beware: 15" Paistes on GC's used site

    Just a heads up, there is a pair of 15” hats on GC’s used page that are labeled as 2002 mediums but are really crunch hats. I ordered them from a store in Florida and they did a terrible job of packaging them and the bottom was damaged. If you see them listed for sale at the Villa Park, IL store...

    Original Paiste RUDE line: 22" power ride?

    Since the PaisteWiki no longer exists and there are no early 80's Paiste catalogs up on drum, I'm having a hard time tracking down what was all available during the original "white label" era of the RUDES. Does anyone know if there was a 22" power ride made during that era? I have...

    New snare day yesterday

    Finally found a matching Damask 5.5x14 Genista snare! Not sure if it'll replace the natural birch version I've had for over a decade. Very clean, too. Can't wait to get some new heads & wires on it and take it for a spin. I also picked up this 4.75x14 Noble & Cooley Alloy Classic from forum...

Hindsight 20/20 I wish I would have used a kick mic but the sound I got from a...
