I picked this one out from a handful that Hazelshould had for sale about 4 years ago.
Sounded exceptionally good to me compared to the others, and I added one rivet to make it even more interesting and sweet.
It's in structurally perfect condition; no cracks, no keyhole, no nicks. Very nice for...
First of all, I guess I should say that outside of buying a couple Spizzichino TW tributes and an Agop SE Jazz TW, I haven't focused much time and energy trying to land a cymbal that sounds convincingly like Tony's does (or what I imagine his cymbal would actually sound like if I...
I always respect your opinions and experience, Paul.
I also have a long history, when this type of discussion arises, of trying to make a distinction between musicality and tonality. I believe that if, for example, Tony had played the entirety of his Nefertiti sessions using a 14" Z Custom...
I generally prefer toms to be mounted from the bass drums, too.
One exception was this 1961 Gretsch Progressive Jazz outfit. The rail placement was a 1/2 'panel' to the left, compared to the more standard rail placement (more centered on top of the bass drum). This put the tom waaay off to the...
I've tried, diligently, several times over the decades to get into Paiste cymbals. I've had full sets of 602s, Signatures, Dark Energies (twice), and Sound Creations (three times).

I've got Humes & Berg Enduro Pro foam-lined drum cases in 8x12" and 14x14" sizes.
These are as good and protective cases as you're going to find, and I've never taken these particular two out of the house, so they're minty and still have the original tags on them.
They look like this:
Just a thread for the sharing of easy-on-the-eyes shots of our snare drums.
Doesn't matter if they're rare or common, boutiquey and pricey, or overlooked and inexpensive.
I'll get it going with this one:
Here are a few shots of a 6x14 Spizzichino stainless steel snare drum, entirely hand made...
I've thought about getting some kind of rack system to mount them, but so far I just use stands with rails.
In this shot, I have the 14" mounted from the tom mount on my bass drum, but the 10", 12", 16" and 18" are on stands/rails:
And here's a clip of me playing that same RotoTom...
