    Inde Wayfarer Aluminum set thoughts?

    Ok. Who out there has an aluminum Inde Wayfarer set? What do you think? I'd like one for taking to practice and gigs. They should be easy to pack from the garage to the truck to the gig and back again and not be fussy about weather conditions.

    What happened to this cymbal and what to do with it!?

    Hey guys. Just picked this cymbal up last night. What the heck! The guy I bought it from "found it" with a bunch of cracks so his drum instructor took care of the cracks and this is what is left. The fact I paid money for it might certify I'm crazy but what the heck, I've been slowly...

    One owner question

    If you are not the original owner of an item you have for sale, or you are not selling on behalf of the original owner, how can you advertise said item for sale as "one owner" when in fact you are the second owner? Always thought this sales tactic to be dishonest.

    I'm not a drum solo kind of guy, but this is such a classic, fitting and grooving solo!

    This is, IMHO, one of the greatest intimate live rock performances with a perfect drum solo/breakdown. This isn't about chops and speed, just straight ahead killer groove! So wish I was there to experience it live. Enjoy!

    I wish PDP made a Concept Maple Classic bass drum. I have an 18 and a 24 but a 20x14 is what I really want. Anyone have an in with PDP/DW that can put a bug in their ear? I bet a 12, 14, 20 would be a hot seller and many folks would add the 16. With the add on sizes they already offer, you...

    Thinking I have an early Slingerland Artist single ply snare.....
