    Sleishman Pro Series Drumset, Rare Macassar Ebony Veneer- $3500 (VA)

    Awesome drums. I love mine but more importantly everyone that hears them loves the sound. Don't see many, anywhere, that come up for sale.

    Hardcases_ $$$or $$$$$$

    Thanks to all for the replies. My question wasn't really questioning the protective value but I don't understand why a hardcase costs so much. I look at the cost in Aust, the US, UK and while the cost is comparatively different, they cost a chunk of dollars. The product is just extruded...

    Hardcases_ $$$or $$$$$$

    I've always used soft cases... But I decided to "upgrade" to hardcases recently. Why are they so expensive? Doesn't seem to matter where in the world or which brand $$$$$. I Could buy a nice kit for just about the same price. Why? Material cost? Relatively small production n numbers? I just...

    Weirdest cymbal you own... that you love

    I bought not one but two bell type cymbals (that's not the correct term.. 6 inches, just the cup, heavy and sound like a church bell). I love the sound but never found any application for them, even doing Pink Floyd covers, or the intro to ACDC's :Hells Bells. They sat in a box for maybe 6...

    Going straight to the source for Turkish-made cymbals

    Most interesting (in a good way) holiday I ever had was Turkey. I bought a about 25 cymbals .. Lots from the Bosphorus factory . Compared to prices in Australia at the time were about a third. I guess different people, different times, different results

    wood hoops

    I like the tone of the cross stick and a generally warmer sound. I don't get the same attack, sharpness, for a rim shot as I would with metal rims. A pain in getting them into the stand (and I'm too cheap to buy another, I resorted to a bit of metal bending ... not sure I would bother with a...

    Sleishman maple shells .... are they australian or Keller ?

    The top end/Custom kit I bought had the (bubinga) shells made in China, not from Keller. At least that was what I was told and highlighted when one of the floor tom shells went missing in shipment. Different for Maple?

    the little finger and little bits of paper

    Did an interesting exercise last night.. I had to place a postage size piece of paper between the little finger of each hand and the stick, and play. Predictably (?) I spent most of the night trying to find little bits of paper on the floor! Looked like wedding confetti by the time I was done. I...
