    Would you buy an add on in a different finish?

    Let's say you've scoured the Earth looking for a certain sized drum to go with your discontinued drum kit - the only thing available you can find is a different finish - do you buy it or keep scouring the Earth? I'm getting parched -

    Lets hear about your embarrassing DIY mistakes

    A week ago I bought a World Max 6.5x14 Brass Black Nickel shell - I had some left over hardware so I was going to assemble it tonight since my Inde strainer and butt plate showed up. I carefully marked the butt location and installed it then rotated the shell to drill for the strainer - all went...

    New Cherry Hill drum key

    They say these are good for low tensioning due to the lack of handle I guess but with the knurled knob you can get pretty usable tension in the medium range. Solid brass

    Have you had any gigs not cancelled?

    We have a wedding scheduled for Friday night - I don't know how big but the Bride and Groom have decided to go on with it. I never thought I would have to make a choice like this. Our bass player texted they were concerned if we would are still willing to play. Everyone but me responded Yes...

    Neil’s perspective

    I don’t know if anyone of you do this but we all know drums are usually recorded panned from the audience’s view. The high tom to low tom goes right to left. Every now and then I’ll reverse my earbuds putting me “behind” the kit. This works great for drummers using large kits like Neil did...

    N&C burnt logo snare question

    In my looking at numerous snare drums, I have only notice a couple with an air vent located behind a lug and they haven’t been in the same spot on each drum. Do they typically come without a vent and it’s buyer’s choice if and where to install it?

    What Tama finish is this?

    The rehearsal studio nearby had this kit in one of the rooms. I’m pretty sure they’re birch/bubinga and it’s a wrapped finish. They sounded amazing! Would this finish confirm they were b/b? I took pics with and without flash

    Wrap with no glue?

    I have a couple of natural finish maple snares that I’ve thought about wrapping but I was thinking of holding in place by the lugs and other hardware instead of gluing it down. Thoughts?

    Vocal mic with lesser bleed through

    I sing backup in my band and I’m finding that the level my mic is set at to hear myself ( I use IEM’s ) picks up way too much bleed through of the drums themselves and the guitar amp which is usually on one side of me or the other. I’m using a Shure 58A vocal mic. Are there any other mics I can...

    OT - cooking class

    Sorry to you anti-OT guys :) I’m looking for a good pan. Not the T-fal crap but something durable and made to last. It’s got to have a lid, be around 5 quarts and something I won’t have to take a second mortgage out on my house for. I don’t care if it’s dishwasher safe or has a second handle...

    OT - El Camino on Netflix

    I just finished watching it and thought it was pretty good. It gets more into Jessie’s story while he was being held captive in that hole and what happens from where Breaking Bad ends.
