    Your BEST Cymbal?

    What is your BEST cymbal? Mine? 22" Matt Nolan Ride. Just a joy to play. Here's a track I recorded outside a few months back with my group using this ride.

    Drum pads for drum set players?

    Firstly, I apologize - I'm a total newb to this electronic drum stuff, decades behind the curve. But, I am interested in getting a pad that can add some exotic sounds to my acoustic drum set. What about someone that has no need for any "drum set" sounds. I HAVE a bass drum, snare drum, tom...
