    Gretsch or Inde

    Ok, not the same I know. I'd like to replace my gigging kit, currently Gretsch NC (heavy drums maybe a bit loud) I like the sound and mojo of the Renowns but not thrilled about the finish and size options. The Inde brand seems like I can get exactly what I want but I haven't played or heard...

    Ludwig Snare Reso head.

    Folks, I have a question about reso snare heads. What do you like and why? I tried this question with facebook drummers and most just said "whatever you prefer" I get it, but that's not the question. I ask because I usually use Evans, but recently put a Ludwig on because I had it in stock...

    Rug or not to rug....

    Folks, My wife decided we needed new flooring in the house. The "studio" room was included. There was carpet in the room and it sounded good. Maybe a bit lacking on the low end of the floor tom. Now it has "LVP" Luxury vinyl planks. It's great stuff and looks amazing. But.... no spikes...

    Tempo map questions...

    Folks, Anyone here have experience playing to tempo maps that slow and speed up? My band has a song that starts at 135 then slows to 100 then speeds back up to 135. Playing live works well enough and using live bpm helps. Trying to come up with a useable tool so we can record it separately due...

    Meinl rides... is there a model like a K sweet ride?

    I have a set of meinl dark dry cymbals. The set started out as a MJ box set. I hated the ride, and picked up a discontinued Sabian ride. What I'm looking for is dry/dark sound with a solid bell. Seems like all I've seen have really small or low/integrated bells. Do you folks have any Meinls that...

    APPs that work on split screens

    Folks, I use Live BPM on an Ipod but I really want to have easy access to a click to start off sons. I'm thinking about getting an Ipad or a Samsung tablet to run both. Anyone else do this?

    Hey folks, I have 70's 3ply 24" kick that had 4 spurs.... I removed the rear set and plugged the holes. I'm using the old mounts but with shortened floortom legs. I'm thinking it's time to upgrade, I prefer the DW/Gibraltar/Gretsch style 2 position fold up types but I'm wondering about the...

    No nuts?

    Hey folks, I picked up a set of these. The black version is a very hard rubber/nylon/plastic make. They push on the stand not thread on. I stopped using wing nuts along time ago and just cover the threads with clear tubing that is small enough to thread on. This looks much cleaner. It's a cool...

    Calftone delam

    I purchased 3 Calftone heads for my toms and within 2 weeks they started to delaminate. I'm not a heavy hitter by any stretch. I reached out to Evans, sent some pictures and they are sending me a new set. Anyone have good luck with these heads? I'm impressed how evans handled the problem.

    Alesis sample pad VS Roland TM-2

    I recently added a Nord drum 1 and some pads to my kit. I'm thinking about adding other sounds both analog and digital. While they are different, they have similar functions as well. Any thoughts from you folks that have used them?
