    Concert toms wanted

    Hey folks - Looking for a pair of concert toms for my kid's 9th birthday. We're slowly working up his kit to match Dave Grohl's in his "Play" video (Almost done with cymbals - better shells will be last and probably not for a few years).

    Cheap pdp throwoff question

    I'm going to swallow my pride and throw myself at the mercy of you folks. I just changed the heads on my son's cheap pdp snare, and I just don't understand the logic behind the tensioning of the throw off. I'm attaching a photo to explain - but basically, when it's in the fully up/locked...

    Dry snare upgrade recommendation

    Apologies in advance - as I know there are probably many threads of this nature here, but I wanted some fresh insight. I have a maniac 8 year old drummer who can really play, and I share his kit (though drums aren't my primary instrument). I got a cheap pdp set for his first full sized kit, and...
