    Did you ever own your “dream” kit ?

    Looking to 'Beef Up' a Snare Drum

    I have a Legay W/REEMLAR bass drum head and a snare head. These were a mix between the Fiberskin and the Reinassance. Very calf-like feel and sound indeed but that coating doesn't last at all!

    Cymbal display/storage stand - K&M Guitar stand re-purposed

    Old thread I know, but do you think I can store some snare drums in these type of guitar/bass stands? How deep is the cradle on these things? The K&M Heli 2 scan fit a cello...maybe a 5.5 or a 6.5" snare can fit also...don't know! Opinions please!

    What to sell from the collection?

    Just my "2 cents" You won't be carrying your money to the grave and you never know what the person(s) who will end up with your drums when you're gone is going to make of them (sell them for cheap money, play them, give them away...)! So, sell the most valuable kits asap when the market is...

    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...

    Water cooler “ evaporative air cooler “

    As others have said, it only works in dry environments. And I may add also, it only works if there's some wind pushing the hot air into the back air vents and into the "water curtain".

    Snare For Brushes?

    Remo Coated ambassador or Aquarian texture coated. The aquarian as a vast superior coating if you're also playing with sticks. I once tried a fiberskin ambassador because evryone kept telling me it was the bomb with brushes...did not like it but perhaps you may!

    Canopus snare wires?

    There is always going to be a difference between a 16 strand a a 20 strand wire! No only in Canoupus wires! The more strands the wetter the sound. Less strands = drier sound = more sound of the drum! If you want to hear the shell and heads combination to its fullest than 12 strand wires is the...

    I've seen the same brand in a flea market in Istanbul a couple of years ago! It was a 13.5-14"" cymbal...it sounded like crap!
