    DrumHead magazine subscribing: Beware! *** update posted below ***

    DFO friends -- Beware of paying for a subscription to DrumHead magazine. In July I paid for a 1-year Print + Digital subscription to the magazine on its online site. I never received a print issue of this magazine (I'm in the US), nor did I ever receive receipt of my subscription payment - a...

    A lighter kit (with a bass drum smaller than 14 x 18) at what musical cost? (What do you lose?)

    I recognize that there is a similar DFO thread, Smaller, lighter, stackable drum sets. I was a contributor to it. But reading through the thread again today, I found the expected suggestions of lighter kits. However, I learned little from the thread about what you lose musically for lightening...

    Sticks (again): Which brand is the best (i.e., consistently well-finished, durable, straight)?

    For a long time, Vic Firth has been my go-to manufacturer for drum sticks (and brushes and mallets). I'm mostly a small group jazz player, and I like, especially, an 85A and the longer "freestyle" version of the same, both made of hickory with wood tips. But in the past couple of years, I've...

    Durability of Gloss Lacquer vs Matte Lacquer (on Canopus Yaiba, and generally)

    Ready to purchase a Canopus Yaiba Bop kit, but not sure on finish: high-gloss lacquer (red sparkle) or matte lacquer (Wine Red or Antique Ebony) finish. Some say that high-gloss drum finishes are susceptible to crazing or cracking if the drums are frequently moved between cold (winter outdoors)...

    Odery (snare) drums?

    I found a few passing references to Odery drums in DFO-land, but not enough to learn what DFO members think of them. I'm considering purchasing a smaller, wood-shell snare drum (under $230?) mostly to have next to my desk in my home office so that, in between things, I can pick-up my brushes...

    12x5, 12x6, 12x7 snare drums: differences in sound, tuning range, versatility?

    This may be a bit esoteric, but I'm hopeful some DFO friends might have the experience to guide me: I'm considering adding a wood-shell (maple, likely) snare drum to my collection: 12x5, 12x6, or 12x7. I already have a 12x5 maple Pork Pie Little Squealer with Aquarian coated (batter) and...

    Drum bag fit for 16x16 bass drum

    Suggestions for a drum bag that will fit my 16x16 bass drum (Sonor)? Will a floor-tom 16x16 bag (Humes & Berg, Road Runner, or [other brand?]) fit? Or is a 16x16 bag too tight for the tom-post mount and the bd hoops? Anyone have experience with this? I'd be grateful for any help. (FYI: I do have...
