    Semi OT - Drum Booth at Steve Maxwell’s in NYC

    A couple of years ago I was in Steve Maxwell’s drum shop in NYC. In there, they had a pre-made sound proof drum booth. They have drums and cymbals set up in the booth. When I asked about it, they said there was a company that makes the booth. The problem is I can’t remember the name of the...

    Can We Talk About Using Vintage Instead of Modern Drums in Live Settings?

    Let me start by saying I have used modern drums for most of my drumming life. I currently own a couple year old Gretsch Brooklyn set and a 5 year old Ludwig Classic Maple set, which are both great. However, recently I purchased a vintage 1966 Rogers drum set that is amazing. I also picked up a...

    Which Istanbul Agop Hi Hats Are Closest to 1960s Zildjian?

    I have a set of 15" Zildjian hi hats from the 1960s that I love. They are light 940/980 yet they have a great stick sound while still being smokey. They are fantastic. However, I'd like them to stay in my home studio. I typically use Istanbul Agop when I play live. I currently have a set of...

    I mean, I know Black Oyster is a desired finish from the 1960s, but this seems insane to me. Am I crazy?

    Re-Wrapping Modern Ludwigs?

    I have a 2016 Ludwig Classic Maple in blue oyster. I like the drums, but I'm not a huge fan of the wrap. I know Ludwig changed their wrapping method a few years back, which supposedly made the wrap much more difficult to remove (or so I have been told). Has anyone re-wrapped modern Ludwigs? If...

    Weird Situation With New Remo Heads and Drum Dots. Any Suggestions?

    I have been playing Remo drum heads for as long as I can remember. Occasionally, I use Drum Dots (like Moon Gels) to dampen my drums. In the past 5 years or so of using Drum Dots, I have never had a problem. Until recently that is. About six weeks ago, I bought a set of new Remo coated Emperors...

    Vintage Supraphonic/Acrolite Vs. Modern Supraphonic/Acrolite

    I'm just wondering, are there any differences in sound between a vintage Supra and a modern Supra? Or a vintage Acrolite vs a modern Acrolite? I ask because I was in Steve Maxwell's shop a couple of months ago, and one of the guy's working there said the vintage Supras are warmer and not as thin...
