    Sympathetic resonance

    Greetings all I always used a cymbal arm om my bass drum with great results, generally with a 16" crash cymbal or a 18" ride. Lately I found some extra thin 13 1/2" trap cymbals that I have been using on that cymbal mount as an effect cymbal (kind of a splah/china sound). The problem here is...

    New budget snare day!

    I think this should interest mainly members of the forum residing in Europe, as the snare drum is only sold at Thomann, but still here it goes. I bought this snare drum initially for my nephew to practice, but after trying it out and seeing and hearing the potential it has, I couldn't resist...

    Is it Ok to share a builders site in this forum?

    The title says it all! Can I share a custom builders site in this forum. If so, whats the correct section? I am in no way associated with the builder. I just think he does an excellent job, builds excellent custom drums and certainly deserves some exposure outside Portugal and Europe. Thanks
