    Drum Accessories-The Good, The Bad, The Worthless

    No Nuts work GREAT, and they last. Gibraltar QR clutch, Snareweight M16/M80, Tackle stickbags, Kenner leather hoop savers, Evans drum keys (magnetic) Tune Bot, BFSD.

    Would In-Ear Monitors be the solution for my situation?

    I have the 215.... stay away IMHO. There are LOTS of better options. Get 3 driver bass heavy models. You can find them on Amazon for about 50 bucks.... The better you fit them to your ears the better they will isolate and the more bass you will get.

    Drum Dial versus Tune Bot

    I have both, I got the Drum dial first. It works but, for me there was always a lug that was kinda loose. I also didn't like the accuracy variance, it didn't give me a number that had meaning to me. I picked up the first version of Tune Bot and then the newer one as well ( I keep one in a gig...

    Drum Rug vs Area Rug?

    My 2 cents.... We put in LVP all thru the house and in the studio. I put the cheap outdoor carpet in and then glued hardboard to that to keep the brightness of the flooring. It's OK but I wish I had put carpet on top of it as well. I'm kinda foot heavy and without spurs stuff moves around too...

    Should I sell a snare....?

    Thanks, and that's really the crux of it. It gets very little stand time if any. It did a decade ago but I prefer 6"+ snares and have plenty. I have a 5" Craviotto and Supra so I've got that depth covered. After looking around it seems like it may only be sellable for 300 ish.... not sure it's...

    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...

    I don't own a metal snare. Should I?

    There are lots of great metal snares and I'm sure all the ones listed here would be great. I will offer my 2 cents.... Get a Oriollo Mangana (Manganese) snare. Not really loud, kinda like a Supra on steroids, does everything well. A used Sonar Ferro Manganese would be a great option as well.

    Mixing drums

    Seems like listening to music/mixes similar to what you are mixing is a way to discover what you may want to do or not to do.
