    Does anyone know which hat stands will work with Gibraltar’s metric pull rods? In particular, do they fit Sonor hat stands (mine’s an early 90s Force 1000)? Here’s the specs from Gibraltar’s website: SC-HHRM Hi Hat Pull Rod(Metric) – Replacement hi-hat pull rod – 23″ long, 6.5 mm diametrer –...

    Byzance Flat China

    I used to have a 19.5” Tosco flat/cupless china cymbal. It was a very cool cymbal.

    Soultone cymbals and their Zildjian "equivalent"

    The Custom and Vintage series are Soultone's workhorse lines, both falling between standard ZIldjian A's and K's. The Vintages that I've played have been heavier than the Customs, but YMMV. The Vintage Old School 1964's are similar to Istanbul Mehmet Legends, with their thin weights and thin...

    What Are You Listening To?

    As far as I’m concerned, an aging rocker doing an album of standards (or should-be standards like the second song below) with a big jazz band is usually a recipe for disaster, but the new Chryssie Hynde album is really good. The arrangements are lush and romantic, but with an undercurrent of...

    Zildjian Old Beats

    I only use 14" Old Beats, either a pair of early 60's A Zildjians (825 & 875g) or a pair of modern Turkish tops (Mehmet Legend top over a Bosphorus Trad Dark top, 850 & 925g). I'm a rock drummer who's playing style is based in 60's pop/r&b (British Invasion, mod/garage/freakbeat, psych-pop...
