    New Ride With This Sound?

    Hi, I'm very nearly almost content and finished with ride cymbals (famous last words). There's one sound left that I'm on the hunt for, and the first cymbal in this video has it: Evidently it's an old 20" A Hollow Block Stamp. I don't need quite that much sizzle, so it may or may not be a...

    What Are Your Most Helpful Independence Exercises / Videos?

    I'm sure a good number of folks here (including myself) were beginning drummers well before YouTube existed, but I'm coming back to drumming after a long break of well over 15 years and could use some help.

    Paiste 2002 *Like New* - 14" Sound Edge Hi-Hats and 20" Crash

    These were purchased brand new as part of a set. There are about 5 hours of light playtime on the hats and much less on the crash and they are in practically brand new shape. Pictures of the 20" crash are coming soon, but the condition is the same as the hats. They sound tremendous and I'd love...

Not long after, I replaced the cymbals with Zildjian ZXTs and put Controlled Sound heads on the toms and a coated Ambassador on the snare. It all sounded pretty good and it worked well for garage band shenanigans...

    Paiste 2002 Sound Edge Hats - 14" or 15"?

    Hi. Amateur drummer here who's finally getting back into the hobby after a long (15+) year break. I've been making some steady progress on updating my old beginner's Pearl Forum kit. After listening to many cymbals (and as a die-hard Bonham fan) I opted to go with all 2002s. I have a 16" medium...

    Best Ear Muffs For Maintaining Fidelity?

    Hi. I've been getting back into drumming on a somewhat regular basis after a hiatus of over 15 years. I've been slowly upgrading my old entry-level Pearl Forum kit, and noticed that as my gear improves, my generic ear muffs that I've used forever are not doing me any favors in terms of fidelity...
