    Close in sound?

    I currently have a 16" Sabian AAX studio crash. If I were to get a 17" Studio crash would the sounds be any different, or too close together in sound? I know there is a difference in size and I wanted to buy an 18" studio crash but can't find any.

    Difference between stage and studio

    I ordered a 18" Sabian AAX stage crash from Memphis drum shop and today I received a package, abd instead it was an 18" Sabian AAX studio crash. My question is what is the difference in between the stage and studio lines? Btw the crash DOES sound great.

    Anyone ever used a coated Emperor as a snare batter? If so, how does it sound as compared to say an Ambassador?

    DW and Pinstripes

    I have been wondering lately about how the Pinstripes would sound on my Collectors toms. My local shop is sold out, so I can't try them out yet. Anyways, has any Collectors owners ever used Pinstipe clears on their toms? If so how did they sound? I like to tune low for what it matters.

    Need help quick

    As you may know I just got a new kit yesterday. Sadly my kick pedal broke last night. I don't have a lot of funds to buy a new one. My local shop has a DW 2000 for pretty cheap. I notice it only has one chain. Are these decent pedals to whoever has used one in the past?
