    Good evening everyone! I have been using Remo emperor batters on my toms in both the coated, clear, and renassaince versions, and I am considering trying the Aquarian reflector series. How do they compare tonality wise, durability wise, and decay? Thanks!

    Ludwig Classic hardware gone?!

    Hi everyone! Maybe I am late to the party, and this has already been talked about, but.... It is no longer on their site! I would have kept the lightest and heaviest and done away with the middle, but I guess it was not selling, or other.
