    I have dreaded this day... (Electric drums)

    So, fate has it that my family will probably have to move soon (Perhaps by the end of the summer, I actually have no idea) and the prime candidate is a house down the road. Obviously, nothing is final, but I'm just trying to be prepared and make sure I'll be able to make the right decision if I...

    Hey guys, I apologize if maybe this has been brought up and discussed before? I've been using this site a lot since October; I find it very cool that I can record and track what I listen to and when, get suggestions about new music to listen to, see what other people are listening to, and find...

    Need help buying a first Harmonica

    Hey guys! I'm looking for some help buying a harmonica. I love the way they sound and would LOVE to learn how to play for myself, and it would be amazingly fun for a band I'm in when we can't come to my house where the drums are at, and to just add some extra sounds to our music. 1. I have...

    Am I doing something wrong? (Sticks getting chipped...)

    I guess I really need to show a pic or something, which I can't do at the moment unfortunately. But I might as well be cutting my sticks down with a huge nail file or something. Brand new sticks will take me well less than a month to chip down a significant amount (Again, at the moment I can't...

    Do you mix/reverse your hats?

    Though I'll soon be selling my 14" A Rock Hats, I found recently I got a much better sound when I put the bottom hat on top. I was really amazed at the difference. So do you have your bottom hat on top or do you even have mixed hats?

    What do you think of Jack White as a drummer?

    A while ago I read that Jack White and Alicia Keys would be recording the theme song for the new Bond movie (Quantum of Solace). I was really excited to hear them actually, but completely forgot about it right up until I heard their song at the opening credits. I was really impressed with it, I...

    Someone on my local Craigslist is selling two 18" Paragon crashes for $150 ($75 each). Wondering if this is a good deal on them, as I have always thought they were much more expensive.
