    I bought the set, and went with the stealth rack.

    DW Collector’s Series Set Up

    Yeah. This maple kit would be my gig kit, if I eventually got back to gigs. I love the idea of having no tripods on the floor with the stealth racks, but also like the idea of having 2 single Tom stands with combine cymbal stands on them. In terms of weight, everything I’ve seen online, is 2...

    DW Collector’s Series Set Up

    So I recently built a big Collector’s Series set, Cherry/Mahogany, with exotic finish. 6 Toms plus the kick and a few different snares. 9 month waiting period. Decided to go with a rack because the set will rarely get moved. I’m more than likely to pull the trigger (amazing deal) on a 333...

    Anyone seen Trainwreck: Woodstock '99?

    This right here. If I had asked my parents if I could go to this (I was 16 or 17 at the time), they would have laughed their ass off and gave me a big “absolutely not”. Based on some of the attendees interviewed and how their parents let them go, I was shocked. I felt there was a lot of “my...

    Anyone seen Trainwreck: Woodstock '99?

    I found the documentary fantastic, though I place the blame a little differently. I don’t think some issues were deliberate, such as the bands picked or sanitation and garbage collection. I think the promoters completely dropped the ball. Not because of greed, but of sheer stupidity and being...

    OT: Chicago/Milwaukee Road Trip? Places?

    For food, Carson’s Ribs (have more than ribs). Extremely underrated place. Phenomenal food. For your vegan GF, their garbage salad is probably one of the finest salad in existence. Maxwell Street Polish at Jim’s on Union. Portillos hotdog and beef sandwich Gibson‘s for a classic steakhouse...

    OT: Chicago/Milwaukee Road Trip? Places?

    Be safe. Chicago has been having some serious crime issues, even in tourist areas.

    Forgot how great these drums were (warning: DW fanboy comments)

    Absolutely. The DW rep even let me know that John Good would be signing a drum head for me, to hang on my wall if I wanted. My mind was blown.

    Forgot how great these drums were (warning: DW fanboy comments)

    It's a really great listen. I still have a minimum of 8 more months waiting on my set, but I mentioned to the drum store owner after I got back from Houston that I was thinking about a set of Congas to compliment my set, the DW sales rep called me immediately and we spoke for about 30...

    Have you switched drum stick sizes over the years?

    I switched from Zildjian Nylon 5A to Pro-Mark Nylon 5A many years ago after a nylon tip came off the Zildjian stick and hit me in the face. When I got back into playing again the last couple years, I noticed the nylon tips sounded harsh to me on my cymbals, so I switched to the Raw Pro-Mark 5A...

    Forgot how great these drums were (warning: DW fanboy comments)

    I may be in the minority on this, but I love the large round lugs. There is just something about them to me that screams DW and the pinnacle of drum manufacturing.

    Forgot how great these drums were (warning: DW fanboy comments)

    This is something I have noticed in the gym equipment world, too. Rogue gets attacked on a daily basis on costing too much and being overrated, yet the equipment is phenomenal and made in the United States. I believe they are attacked for the same reasons, not being able to afford it. And...

    Forgot how great these drums were (warning: DW fanboy comments)

    This post gets me super excited for the Collector’s Series I built last month. Gotta wait 9 months. I went with the Cherry/Mahogany. So frickin excited.
