    Zildjian EAK 20” Ride 2474

    Zildjian EAK 20 Ride cymbal. 2474 grams. This one has beautiful hammering top and bottom, and a wonderful wash underneath the ping. You can definitely tell this one was hand-hammered. There is a pretty good flea bite that I tried to show in the picture, but of course it doesnt affect the sound...

    Ludwig Stainless Steel

    Are the ludwig stainless steel kits heavier than an equivalent wood kit? I've been interested in the stainless because of the sound, but was also thinking about the advantages (for me) because i often leave my drums in the car which sometimes isn't the best practice in my climate.

    Amazing Weckl solo

    I've never been a big Weckl fan. I certainly admire his talent but just not my cup of tea. But this solo is just monstrous:

    I've used a beat bug over the years, but it's finally quit working. So i tried LiveBPM for a few gigs. I'm wondering how accurate this app is, because it seems to fluctuate an awful lot -- even when I hold it up to a speaker with radio music that i know was recorded with a click. I don't know...

    DW ultra light snare

    I've posted about this before, before I bought one. I wanted so badly to like it because of all the weight it saves. But there are at least 2 deal breakers for me, and maybe someone will read this and save themselves some money (not that everyone would agree with me, but you know what i mean)...

    Cymbal tree

    I have my cymbals strewn on my ping pong table. I'd like to find an old Zildjian store display rack, but barring that, what are you folks using to store cymbals between gigs?

    SOLD EAK Heavy Ride

    For sale: EAK Heavy Ride, approximately 2604 grams. I bought several EAK's at once and am selling all but one. This cymbal is not as heavy as some of the "heavy rides," and it sounds and records great. Very distinct ping, but still with very complex wash underneath. I will post a link to a...

    Mono bag

    I experienced my first cracked cymbal recently. I don't know how it happened, but it cracked at the edge, and i think it may have had to do with the bag hitting the ground. I have a pretty nice Humes & Berg bag. Has anyone used one of these? I like the plastic "boot" that protects cymbals...

    EAK score

    For a couple of years i've been obsessed with new stamp K istanbuls. I am sold on hand-hammered cymbals and think they have a mojo that others just don't. But sometimes i find them not quite cutting enough for amplified music. So after listening to some sound samples i've decided to dip my...
