    Paiste 2002 18” heavy ride?

    If anyone has used this cymbal I’d be interested in their opinion. Is it “rare”? I found one ytube vid. On cymbal wiki a commenter says “ok in lower volume setting but may be “clangy”. One is for sale local to me, (Toronto), I have a small set of 2002’s that I consider my “small gig” set: 14”...

    5 minute drum lesson (wisdom of an ok drummer)

    My children suggested I offer on line drum lessons (because lots of bored young people are looking for activities since schools out probably until September) I said the important things I could teach about getting hired to play drums would only take 5 minutes at which point the student should...

    DW 5000 pedal remove sprocket?

    I have half of a DW 5000 double pedal and hoped to try to reverse the sprocket and beater holder to use as a cocktail pedal, (upward striking), but can’t find any video of a 5000 being disassembled so the sprocket can be removed.

    Bronze washers on Ludwig snare?

    I’m cleaning/restoring to health a friends 1978 or 79 Ludwig hammered bronze supraphonic 14” x 5” and the previously very blackened washers appear to be bronze when cleaned up. Does anyone know or am I imagining this? No big deal, glad all parts are there, just curious...

    Yamaha Stage Custom Birch mic’d live

    Rarer (for me) rock gig last night at a local bar with a house PA and sound tech. He did a fine job, as far as the on stage sound. Debuted my new Yammie crosstown hardware, it worked well. I didn’t ask his opinion but when tearing down it was satisfying to hear him complement both the sound of...

    Yamaha Oak Custom vs Mapex Saturn IV

    First: I'm aware this is not a scientifically exact test - (I would love to see results of recordings where decimal levels and kHz readings of individual drums are revealed), failing that, I recorded in my man cave last night to compare these two kits: Mapex Saturn IV 10", 12", 14" floor, 20x16...

    bass drum tension?/pedal control

    I played my 16" bass drum on Friday (at a small bar gig, 4 piece) and realized I had much better control (as in precise notes/rebound control) and pedal response then when I'm using my 22" x 17". The 16" sounded great (at least to us on stage) and I felt like I played it well. I play mostly heel...
