    When slaving modules, can you technically have two hihats and two ride cymals because the inputs are there?

    Hey all! I am wondering if, when you slave a module, you can use the slaved moduele's hihat control and cymbal connections to have two hihats. (One on a normal stand and one on a remote stand) Can you do the same with ride cymbals and have two three zone ride cymbals? Thanks, -Nomo

    Should I save up to buy my dream drumset, even if the finish isn't in good condition?

    Roland td17 lol. An 80s superstar will make me so much happier even if I can only play it converted to electric

    Should I save up to buy my dream drumset, even if the finish isn't in good condition?

    Hey all! (This is all theoretical BTW) My dream drumset is an 80's TAMA Superstar in the aquamarine lacquer finish. I would absolutely KILL to have one of these drum sets, I almost don't care about the sizes. Problem is: They're somewhat rare and are REALLY EXPENSIVE. I'm talking $500.00 for a...

    Is this trade worth the hassle?

    I would go for the trade! Vintage drums are almost always worth it, especially coming from a trusted manufacturer such as Ludwig. It probably sounds KILLER too! I love the sound of vintage drums, and that is why my dream drum set is am 80's TAMA superstar in Aquamarine Lacquer. Vintage drums...

    Can you slave a Roland TD 17 Module to the Alesis Strike? Will it work with drum software?

    Thank you! I was also wondering if the modules were compatible. By drum software, I mean something like SuperiorDrummer3 or another similar software -NMD

    Can you slave a Roland TD 17 Module to the Alesis Strike? Will it work with drum software?

    Hey all! It's been a while since I've posted. I am wanting to know if I can slave a Roland TD-17 Module to an Alesis Strike Module. Slaving a module is when you connect the MIDI out of one module into the MIDI in of another and configure it so that the "slaved" module will act as a secondary...

    I would like to find a cheap stencil/PDP kit to use for acoustic to electric conversions

    Hey all! Title says it all. I don't care what it sounds like, just that it looks good. I am not going to be playing it in it's acoustic form EVER. This is purely for conversion purposes. Ideally, I want something with all the hardware included (Tom mounts and Floor tom les). Thanks! -Nomo

    Best Snare Side Head for 6.5x14 DW Wood Snare?

    I didn't know that DW made heads. I mean... It makes sense. They are called "Drum Workshop"

    Best Snare Side Head for 6.5x14 DW Wood Snare?

    I really enjoy the REMO Ambassador Hazy. It has a nice, warm tone to it, and is a really easy head to find. They are much better than other heads in my opinion. They are MILES better than the stock TAMA heads on my TAMA Woodworks.

    Why I switched to Vater 5A's

    I am definitely a hard hitter and I grip sticks tightly, like you said. That is probably what caused the blisters. It could also be the finish on the Vic Firth sticks. As for why I can crash easier on the 5A's. I think its because I'm such a hard hitter, I can put more power into the stick...

    Why I switched to Vater 5A's

    I used to love the Vic Firth 2B sticks, but I have run into some problems while using them. First of all: Blisters. Lots and lots of blisters. When I would use 2B's I would get large blisters at the base of my fingers and up and down the finger as well. It became so painful that I couldn't...

    I have $250. What wood snare would you recommend?

    That is a hard question to answer as snares are a matter of personal preference and there are so many out there. I myself prefer TAMA stuff, but that could be different for you. I do realize that is harder to find nice wood TAMA stuff at a low price, but if you save up a bit, you could get some...

    How About Songs w/Ride Cymbals That We Liked?

    I love the ride parts in basically all of appetite for destruction. They definitely loved their rides. Some of my favorites are the ride part in Welcome to The Jungle and the groove in It's so Easy. That entire album was full of some amazing ride grooves. For Welcome to The Jungle, I am talking...

    Ear protection- what do you use?

    I just use powered off skull candy headphones. They work well enough for me and cut out quite a bit of noise, even without active noise cancelling.

    What's your favorite snare drum?

    I would LOVE a 6.5x14 Black beauty, but I don't have that kind of money. I am only 14 and by the time I got into drumming, those snares were out of production :( Great work keeping the box, that snare is only going to go up in value over time. I wish I had the money for a black beauty. :(

    I'm really excited (and nervous) for my first gig.

    Show is still on apparently... They are not delaying the show at all. I have recovered from my sicknesses which was in fact NOT COVID. I am assuming that the other band member is fine an has recovered. Our show is still a good 2 weeks out, so everyone should be cleared by then. There is a...

    What's your favorite snare drum?

    Hey all! We had favorite drum stick, favorite drum brush, now we have favorite snare drum! My favorite snare drum is by far the TAMA Woodworks 14x6.5 Poplar snare. It has so much rich tone to it, even with the stock heads. I think it sounds amazing no matter how you tune it. Post your...

    I'm really excited (and nervous) for my first gig.

    Hey friends! Looks like the gig is off... One of our band members tested positive for COVID 19 and now I've been feeling petty sick. I got tested yesterday and I am awaiting results. With this new development, our show could be in jeopardy. This sucks. I spent 5 months of my life preparing for...
