    Giving Kudos to.......

    Buddman 1955 I bought a vintage tom he had advertised here at DFO. I didn't dicker on the price & he was kind enough to reduce the shipping by half. He thoroughly cleaned the drum,it looks just like it does in the photos & description. He stayed in constant contact w/ me thru the whole...

    converting regular cymbal to sizzle

    How many of you have converted a regular cymbal to a sizzle/rivet cymbal? I'm thinking of doing this with some crash cymbals to get a little more sustain.I play smaller venues w/ no overhead mics.I feel as though my cymbals natural sustain is limited because of the PA. & amplifiers volume.Plus,I...
