    Direct Drive Nirvana

    After 30 years of using variations of the Camco/DW strap and chain driven pedals, I recently switched to Yamaha direct drive pedals. OMG. The pedal just disappears. How did the DW/Camco design become the standard? They simply do not register every strike. Sort of like a noise gate. Only the...

    Do the "302" hoops on the Renowns feature the "gretsch 302" logo? I can't find any photos showing the logo.

    Free drums. Is there anyone in Boise who can assist with a CL purchase?

    Is there anyone in Boise who can assist me with purchasing a small bop sized kit and shipping to me in Ohio? The seller only wants to sell it as 2 5-piece kits together. I only want one of them. Just the 5 drums. Whoever helps me can keep the other kit plus all of the hardware. And, I want the...

    Ludwig BD Hoops

    Have Ludwig BD Hoops changed specs over the years? Depth and the shape of the edge. When did the shape of the outer edge change? Are they 1.5" or 1.75"?

    Unexpected favorite

    Does anyone have an unexpected favorite drumset? A beater? A house kit? Something you never expected to even like, let alone love?

    Cymbal weights

    Does anyone else not give a poopy? Completely worthless information IMO. The model description is sufficient. Why haven't we started to weigh drumshells, too?

    Time for a brand new kit....

    I haven't had a brand new kit since my first one in 1986 when I was 16. I have had over a hundred used kits since then. Every major brand. Enough to know that "parts is"...pretty much.."parts". I am tired of used kits. I sell off anything of value. I want something brand new. To keep. And, I...

    Who else is using 13" hi-hats?

    That's all I have. K/Z is the role model. Always a Z on the bottom, and occasionally will swap the top K for something else. Hated every 14" set I owned. Too sluggish. Can't imagine using the gargantuan sets that people are using now. Peart, Copeland, Katche... All 13".
