    Prisoner to the sizzle Ride

    hi.. I have realised that if I play any style of music at all with any other Ride cymbal other than my sizzle Ride (22" 2oo2, or 20" A Custom) I really miss them.. The dynamic I can get from a sizzle has me hooked.. It's NEVER too much and it improves stick attack greatly. But for all around...

    Sly and Robbie

    On Bob Dylan's "infadels" interesting.. With Joan armatrading!! Brilliant.. Anyone help me with more suggestions of albums they played on.. Session work rather than solo offerings.. I think they add flavour and are at their creative best when working with other artists.. Gery

    I bought this new.. Most of my snares are 6.5 deep.. I have a couple of 5.5 but this is my first 5" I always switch out wires for 12" strand "concer t wires" on my wood Drums as it instantly makes them mor about the Shell ans less about the buzz.. This drum is utterly superb! Cranked it up a...
