    Keep getting adds for a new kickstarter for Tandem Drums Drops. Seems like a "wallet" style moongel type tone/ring control. Does anyone here have any knowledge or experience with these?

    For me back in the early to mid 90's THE hat combo that you had to have was the K/Z combo. Does anyone still play on these?

    Changing snare tunings

    How often do you change the tuning of your snare? Or your kit for that matter? Over the decades I've "locked" into my desired sounds and really have just 2 snare sounds that I love. So I have 2 snares. Once I put on a new head and tune it up I leave it there. I keep hearing about the great...

    The Tama thread

    Doing a usual random Tama snare search and came across a quick mention of the Tama Gibralter snare. Tried to get more info but the internet failed me. What exactly was this model? Was it an Artstar model? One I saw was a super thick wooden shell with die casts and the early 80s style strainer.

    Weathermaster coating issues

    Has anyone noticed an issue with the coating on Ludwig Weathermaster Heavy batter heads flaking really quickly? I'm on my 2nd head and having the same issue. I don't play all that much anymore so it may have a total of 10 hours on it. I'm not a heavy hitter and at $40 a pop this shouldn't...

    New Metallica Album and Tour Announced

    I went to the Met Life stadium website to see what the seating chart would be and it had a link to ticketmaster for tickets.

    OT: E-Bike

    Mine was expensive as I need a bike that can support my weight. It has 5 levels of assist and can be turned off completely turning it into a standard pedal bike. It is considerably heavier than most bikes due to the weight of the battery and heavy-duty frame/wheels. Just like anything else the...

    OT: E-Bike

    I purchased my ebike last year and love it. I work close from home but it's mostly downhill to work so at the end of the day having that assist is great. Plus I live just outside of Philly and there are great paved bike trails everywhere. I can go and bike/cruise all day. I'm clocking in at...

    Triple splash stand

    I want to mount 3 splash cymbals above my hats. Does anyone make a single stand with 3 cymbal arms on it? I don't want a lot of stands and multiple clamps get a little ridiculous and heavy on one stand.
