    DW Collectors - Wrap vs Stain/Finish on Maple/Mahogany

    I support the conclusion that wraps/finishes do not effect sound in any perceivable way. Ideally the finish of your kit should 1) Make you happy with your acquisition 2) reflect your sense of aesthetic 3) excite you. That said I've learned to love finishes (BOP, Red Glass Glitter) when kits...

    Whiplash Backlash

    my favorite part of the movie is the dinner when the drummer tells the footballer that a touchdown just becomes a score in a win or lose in a season and noone goes back to watch it over and over...to me it was a movie about how to create art/how to break free...even if the guy's methods are...

    Rogers Drum Identification

    Does it include everything in the photo? if so $250 is a decent price but those are not classic Rogers....but it would be a good starter kit if your wife is starting.

    Getting a Supraphonic to sound like a Super Sensitive

    Perhaps you could if you changed out the wires and butt for something that would allow longer wires. I had a SLingerland 2 for 1 and you could use 14 or 15 snare wires on it. this snare/butt set allows for a longer wire ...

    Head choices for acrylic fibes toms?

    i recently tried Cardinal 1 ply clears top and bottom. Very lively and very easy to tune up...I'd probably try a 2ply top...i tried Cardinal coateds over clears on a Nordic kit I have and they also tuned up easy...i wouldn't rule them out

    Walnut! And my snare collection

    i really enjoy your posts. I've only had one Walnut and I wasn't happy...maybe it was the drum...or the tuning...or the player...might be worth retrying. Are you using the 10 much?

    Hi hat bottoms..we don't talk much about them

    I recently obtained a 14" SE Paiste Sig. bottom hat. I think its my 2nd (I'm not a Paiste guy but they make everyone else's tops sound better IMO). So it got me thinking...what are the qualities of a good bottom hat? I had some Scimitar bottoms that were heavy and student B8 but they sounded...

    Another marcher - is this another parts drum?

    So...it might have some value to a collector of Way...and from the pics there are no holes for mounting hardware so I'd proceed slowly on breaking it down. That said its not an unusual Way finish nor is it in great shape (shell finish). Me...I'd try playing catch and release and see what kind...

    Where is the sizzle?

    my first teacher had a 20" Zilldjian with rivets and it was a pretty magical cymbal...at least impressive. I'm going to be selling an 18" Meinl 'one of a kind' sizzle cymbal (one of a kind i think is how Meinl labels custom order, I bought it off ebay)...as i didn't use it enough and...I bought...

    Tell me more about Remo custom orders (7" head)

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/255849071388 I should know better but for the price...I'd like to put a mount on the block between the toms and play with sticks. The hide heads would never last. 6" heads are out there...there are synthetic 7.15 bongo heads that might be worth trying... thoughts...

    More unidentified hardware

    hmm....they look a little like bongo tuners but not quite. It also reminds me of an L arm the Tama metronome (rhythm watch?) had as an option to mount it Is the threading and size the same as a cymbal mount? I'd imagine they're from one of those percussion like mounts...
