    Rogers Swivomatic pedal spring.

    Also check out McMaster-Carr for some springs (if you don't have a well-stocked hardware store nearby), you should be able to get a package of them for less than the price of one spring... Follow the links for Extension Springs with Hook Ends

    alternative spring replacement for axis pedals?

    I couldn't find info on the Axis spring rate. Unfortunately, I don't think any manufacturer puts that general information in their manuals or sales content as I checked several for comparison. I would call Axis again (310.549.1171) and I would also follow-up using the web-based contact form on...

    The Stupefyingly Funky Jonas Brothers!

    Nothing like some fathead bloviating... "These 14-seconds are like opening a wormhole through musical space/time tying the tracks drummer... all the way back to Clyde Stubblefield... I'm translating it as "I have a crush on all three of the yummy Jonas boys!"

    Downsides to converted acoustic drums compared to e-drums?

    Trigger wise I think you can find just what you need on the market (plenty of DIY'ers on the VDrums Forum) that would replicate "good" e-kits, if you go the mesh head route. The challenge is figuring out what module to go with, and this is where your costs are going to escalate, especially so if...

    Ludwig heirloom snares

    I thought these drum were pretty good looking in person... I liked the color (black nickel that is brushed rather than polished as you mentioned), decorative etching with no bead and Imperial lugs. The shell is rolled and welded. Don't know if you've seen this, but here is a brief overview from...

    Remote hi hat experiences?

    Is this a newer remote HH? I've got an older (mid-80's) TAMA cable, and I thought it was a bit mushy compared to the direct-drive rod of my traditional HH stands. Just curious if there's been an improvements in feel over the years.

    Recommendations for beginner song sheet music (hal leonard etc)

    Well you're in the right neighborhood with the Hal Leonard stuff. Another publisher to look into is Alfred. Since it's for you, I'd just grab some titles with songs you already know/like or always wanted to learn and go for it. I've got a half-dozen of these kind of titles & think these are...

    Drum brands (starting over from scratch)

    There is no one "best." Far too subjective a topic to nail down without a boat load of criteria as RIDDIM is pointing out. However, to echo some of the other comments above, there is no better time to be buying drums than today as there are so many high quality choices. It would be hard to...

    Rediscovered My INDe Aluminum

    Not the best picture, but this is my LS403TD50 - Ludwig 6.5"x14" snare with "exotic" Birdseye maple veneer. It was sitting in the box for over 8-years. I was a bit disappointed that it didn't have as many freckles as the original "limited edition" version from 2000 (I didn't dig the brass...
