    Recommend a ride for me...

    I need to spend some time on that site that has all the sound clips of cymbals for sale (can someone remind me that site?). I'm looking to get a new ride and thought i'd reach out here for some feedback! I currently play mostly americana to alt-rock. I play a four piece Gretsch renown maple...

    Question / Advice on Cases

    Yep the bass drum is bar far the best part of the kit. Especially tuning a 14 x 14 floor tom is a challenge.

    Question / Advice on Cases

    Hi all, I have a Gretsch Renown Maple kit that I gig with. 10, 12, 14, 22" I have had them in soft cases for a while now, and they are a pain to negotiate putting them in taking them out on stage. So i'm thinking about getting hard cases for them and looking for thoughts / advice. Are the...

    Recommendations for hardware case

    Thanks for all the feedback. I picked up a hard golf bag case yesterday of CL for $60. Not as good a deal as some of you found, but not bad considering it looks like it goes for 150+ new. I'll give a try and see how it works out.

    Recommendations for hardware case

    Well that Beato bag 36" is $154, and the SKB Mid sized case is 33" for $179, so not that much more... I just don't think that 36" let alone 33" is long enough. I'll have to measure the one I have. I think it would be closer to the 47" model of the Beato...

    Recommendations for hardware case

    Hi all, Was wondering if I could get some recommendations on a hardware case. My local stores don't have much stock so I'm stuck looking at pics and descriptions on line. I currently have a soft hardware bag. My biggest complaint with it is when I pick it up to carry it up/down stairs the...

    Cymbal Advice

    The crashes were cracked and needed to be replaced. Did you think the bell was too loud or just didn't like the tone? I'm not a huge fan of that ride- it is a 21" Zildjian A.

    Cymbal Advice

    FYI I ended up buying a 16" AAX Stage Crash and an 18" AAX Stage Crash. I played one show with these- I am liking the 18" - it is LOUD, but luke warm on the 16". I almost pulled the trigger on a 19" AAX Xplosion Crash- sounded great but not sure it works for our style of music. They are both...

    Cymbal Advice

    Thanks for the advice. I wasn't familiar with mycymbal.com and that will surely be a huge time suck! I'm not really familiar with Bopshorus cymbals but I am digging the sound of some of the Traditional line. Theres too many choices though very hard to hone in on something...

    Cymbal Advice

    I know it’s a highly personal thing, but I’m hoping to get some advice on what cymbals to buy. I am a hobbyist, not a pro. I play in a local band here in Indy and we play a Replacements/BoDeans/Gaslight Anthem style of Americana (here’s a video from a recent show if you’re interested ). My...

    Benefits of a rack?

    Thanks for all the great feedback. Stickinthemud, I don't quite follow you here. Do you have a van or something that you transport your stuff around in where you don't have to fold the legs up? I have a hardware bag that everything goes in, so everything gets folded up and collapsed to a...

    Benefits of a rack?

    Hi all, Infrequent poster here... I am considering getting a rack for my main kit. It is a 5 piece gretsch renown maple. I usually have two crashes and a ride- pretty simple set up. I"m a hobbyist / amateur and play in a local band. My two high toms are stand mounted, not bass mounted...

    Cleaning pitted hardware

    I have a set of Gretch renown maple that I bought about 5 years ago. It has been out of the house maybe 15 - 20 times since then. For the last 12 - 18 months it has been sitting inside my house in soft bags. I just pulled them out yesterday and most of the hardware (lugs, rims) are starting...

    Opinion on refinishing Yahama Stage Custom

    I definitely realize that doing this doesn't turn the kit into a valuable collector's piece or anything- it really is just for my own satisfaction. I am just a huge fan of that duco finish. When I bought that kit, it was lightly used and I think I paid maybe $700 for it (almost 10 years ago...

    Opinion on refinishing Yahama Stage Custom

    Hi all, Happy to finally have re-found this forum! I have an older Yamaha Stage Custom set that I am contemplating refinishing in blue/silver duco. This kit has the lugs that span the entire depth of the drums which I do not really care for. So what I am contemplating doing is filling all...

    Cleaning an old snare drum

    Hi Guys, I know I have read a thread on this topic before... If someone with better search abilites than I can find that thread for me, great. If not, I'd like to revisit this topic. I have an old chrome over alum supra that I am cleaning up. It has some pitting and other surface issues. I...
